I'm with hobbo on this one - he's one of my most hated players. He dogged it big time when he was here. No matter how much you want to give him credit for the "one percenters", the truth is, he was atrocious. I don't think he's much better at the broncos either, the rest of his teammates are just much better. He is one of the biggest frauds going around in the NRL - has a reputation for being tough, but is nothing more than a cheap shot merchant. Something happened to him after the "battle of brookvale" incident - I think he lost a lot of his aggression after that. Some of the money reportedly being offered is insane. I generally like the warriors/knights, but if they sign Blair for big money, I will have no sympathy for them when he turns out to ultimately be a bust.

I would be livid if we signed him again.

Only if he was free and even then I'd be reluctant

No thanks. Can't see we would want him or why he would want to come here. Given his history with the club and the way he performed and the team performed when he was here, I just don't see this as a good idea. I understand though that Cleary wasn't here then and probably isn't being influenced by that.

He'd be braindead to come back here and we'd be braindead to take him back.

Why do people say "Yes and no" without qualification?

If Adam Blair came to us for 80K, I would say Yeeess
If he came for 500K I would say NO way.

Whatever he did, his form, his style did not suit our team. I think some forwards work better as a lone gun i.e. Hindmarsh, Fulton, etc. While others like being in a big pack going forward, i.e. Blair, Brett White, etc. Blair was used to playing a "no mistakes" game. A game where he does his bit and keeps his side of the field up so that Cam Smith and co can slaughter the other side. He comes here and it's a "go for it", he's lost.

Personally I would say NO, unless the money is really good. Yes he is a great impact, big hitter of a player, but I don't think he is what we need. He is too low energy and focused to his structured teams.... Yet if he is coming cheap...Yeeeesssss

He'd be alright as long as he plays in the middle. He turns into Harold Holt out wide.

No chance he is looking at a 4 year deal. Will be a lemon when he leaves the Broncs.

I tweeted Justin', just had to make sure it wasn't true, what a fraud of a player, would have been a huge setback. I replied and asked him about Rona , see if he answers again, didn't think he respond in the first place.

You're more likely to see Farah and Jason Taylor co coaches of the tigers next year then Adam Blair playing for us again

He has replied again to my question of whether Rona had missed the bus?. His reply was "the bus is not full yet!". Still could he a chance. Glad he has taken the time to respond,

Well done to get a response and good on him for answering.

I couldn't stand Blair at the Tigers but watching him lately at the Broncos he looks a completely different player. He is working really hard in both attack and defence and his offloads, although sometimes astray, can be very effective. You have to ask yourself why was the guy such a dud with us yet such a strong player elsewhere - and he's not the only player that has been like that.

I can't believe the Broncos are letting Moga go.
