Played on a wing though from memory. Beast of a FF which would've been amazing in our premiership years.
Was AA for us too (1997). And leading goalkicker (1998). Lost a gun, gained the draft pick to use on a gun (Daniel Kerr). And David Sierakowski.

Completely different to the Brander situation.

IMHO it's insane that there wasn't more interest in the guy. He was a first round draft pick, KPP who didn't get much of a chance in his preferred position, but still showed some promise. Not suggesting he should have been traded for a first round pick, but GWS basically picked him up for free. Other than the salary cap considerations, he's much better value for money that some speculative late pick in the draft, or a rookie.

IMHO, clubs massively over-value the draft.

It more sounds like clubs knew they could pick him up for free...
