I completely agree that Gomez had nothing to do with the signings, despite one radio clip of Cammy saying that "they're moving in a new direction, like with trading for Gomez" but I'm sure they got higher offers than 4.5 and 3.5

The Cole signing is looking pretty silly now though, 4 years when his best offer was for 3 and a NTC on top of it? Hrm...
