    Can't believe anyone would crucify blair, over blair giving cronk a love tap. Our forward pack is full of vanilla fairys, about time we signed someone with some niggle. Sick of the soft cocks we have(bar Gavet).

    I'd rather give him a return ticket to brisbane. Worst signing ever.

    There's no stat for kick pressure or line speed tho... or passes at the line.

    What's his play the ball speed like? Gavet doesn't make huge meters, but he gets a fast PTB for the next guy to get a good look at a broken line.. There's no stat for this.

    Blairs real strengths don't show up in conventional stats. We'll have to wait and see how our team looks once he's here doing what he does...

    Probably already been posted, but it's good viewing for the 1 or 2 pro Blair fans out there...

    Not good with internet stop watches mate. As you know, my skillset starts and ends with banning people on internet forums.

    Broncos fans seem to be very happy with losing Blair, with the post 'He does the 1% and forgets the 99%' a nominee for the post of the year at BroncosHQ.com

    As a side note they really rate Corvo and have never missed the 8(with or without Bennett) with him there. Also rate Love-Henry. And think that Kearney's best role is as a career assistant coach (even before the clusterfuck year of 2017 began)...

    The shots to the back of the player after they have passed are not a good look. It is also a reminder of what we are getting; watching the last few weeks he does put a lot of pressure on the play makers pressuring them while passing during play or limiting their kicking time. He sails close to the wind so we will be getting some good plays along with some not so good ones.

    Andrew Johns is big on the protection of the halves especially being hit when they are relaxed after passing. This would be something he probably experienced a lot so it would be something he'd want out of the game. Now saying in is unlike Smith to react is a bit rich, he is a champion niggler the Australians like to paint him as a saint. That same game Slater got tackled and decided to give Alex Glenn a few forearms instead of getting up quickly and getting a quick play the ball taking advantage of being tackled and ending up on top of the tackler.

    He is a career sniveller, not worth listening to, but it was dirty.
    Hell yes, rather him than Maquire from their point of view. I hadn't seen that clip from NRL 360 before. Aaron Woods really rated him. I liked that he is first to training and last to leave and really is respected by the Polynesians. That could be valuable and would explain Kearney wanting him so much, especially for Vete and Lisone.

    Year alright, put it away.

    Players who've played against him and with him have vouched for him. Wally Lewis likes him. That's good enough for me. He's another Mannering AFAICT, which is great.

    It wouldn't be so bad but he has been signed by a management team that have a poor record,

    This would be true even if we signed Bromwich an NAS an Burgess , We got to try something

    Im looking forward to seeing Gavett get some support out there , So we have more than one

    Player trying to add some aggression,

    Too right, Gavet and Mannering were the only 2 forwards consistantly trying to get over and dominate their opposites. Win the middle third while holding possession and we'll be top 8 bound, throw in some defence and we might even make a run..

    I look at the Cowboys forwards like Bolton and Lowe etc their 100% better then Adam Blair and others at the club currently.

    I'm sure the majority of them are not on $600k per annum.

    Your a fool if you believe Blairs been recruited for his meters, it's never been about making 15 runs and 150 meters.

    Must be something else they're after.
