You don't get my point, well you answer it in your own post. "They either reach a mutual agreement... or they go their seperate ways??" Let me explain that to you, an agent comes in and says my player is worth $xxx k, the club says, we feel he is worth $yyy k, now they negotiate till the club reaches the maximum amount they are prepared to pay or the least amount it takes to secure the player. Now I don't know how much negotiating you have done in your life but if you go into it by saying I have $100k I am willing to spend to buy that house but I will offer you $50k the first thing the sales person will say is , it costs $150k, because they know that you are already willing to spend more. You then negotiate till chances are you get to $100k. However if you go in and say we intend to spend $50k and have little chance of movement you then potentially have the chance to sign a contract for less as the sales person thinks any increase is good and getting you to say $80k is a great outcome as they were willing to sell it for $70k. Whether it is a house, car,tv or player the point for the buyer is the BEST product for the least money.
except my answer was way shorter and less patronizing I didnt get your point in reference to this thread, or spending Owen Glenns millions in cyberspace ,my point is all parties involved have more experience in player negotioation than you or I will ever have Im sure they could sort it with their eyes closed and the market will dictate rangers value. At the end of the day if we want players they cost money, this thread was about Ranger coming over to league maybe soon no idea how much he'd cost
I still reckon the Tigers should look at him on their wing both Lote and Utai are getting on a bit.
