Not saying he's lying just hoping the boys use this in a positive way, as motivation & try to turn things around.

I remember being at a training session when Blair first arrive and overheard Sheens say how impressed he was with his attitude and how good he was in the wrestling drills.
Guess it didn't take long for the Australian coach to whip that out of him.
Yep that's right he was going to bring the Professionalism from the Storm to the Tigers... Guess he is saying he failed

And as we are all seeing now , this is true , we were a basket case

Amazing what a winning culture can do
You're a funny guy. We've improved so much on previous years haven't we ? Or have we gone backwards ?

As for Blair's comments. Its just a load of palava.

Maybe its the Wayne Bennett factor up there as Bennett has the Broncos on top and going strong.
He seems to get players to believe in themselves and their own ability.

Gee he's a wizard. A team full of talent at a club with endless resources and a nursery bigger than all the other clubs combined.

Went to St George who had talent but were perennial under-achievers - won the comp eventually and left because he could see it was all downhill from there.

Went to Newcastle because of a HUGE salary and a promise of any resource he desires (Tinklerism) they had some decent talent but look who he brings in anyway because we know Bennett coached teams have to have tough forwards - Scott & Smith. One good year, slide gets steeper - bye bye.

How many "great" coaches go to a struggling club to make a difference? Probably only the late, great Jack Gibson. He was never afraid to put his reputation on the line but he was always willing to try and improve a club.

Hey Bennett come down here to this joint. We all know that he'll bring in half a dozen top liners anyway. He won't care about the top juniors here. No waiting for them to mature in first grade not in his team.

Don't get me wrong here ppl, he is a winner but only on his terms.

How do you think JT would go if he had the resources that Bennett demands wherever he goes? We wouldn't be wooden spoon favourites for 3 years running.

I still would have no confidence he would pick the right team or have a decent game plan that works.

Hes got nothing to prove.
Great coaches can name their own terms....why take several steps down the rungs in your career when you dont have to?
Would you?

Blair is still crap, but like the Storm their is a lot of over sally cap players to do his work for him. Not like W.T. where he was expected to pull his weight & not bludge like he always has.

I like how you've conveniently left out the fact the Broncos have struggled the last couple of yrs with virtually the same squad.

Blair is and always has been a luxury player. When he is part of a dominant pack he can be the missing premiership piece. When asked to do the heavy lifting he is not built of war. We did well to let him go however, we have the cap charge for this year so we effectively increased the Broncos salary cap by $500k.

Exactly. I actually think that he can pick the right team better than some coaches however coming up with a decent game plan is beyond the guy at this point.

Gotta love Woodsie's comments re Blair in today's SMH:
http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/leag ... idu6a.html
The clash marks the first time Adam Blair will face the Tigers since being released from the final year of his contract during the preseason. The former Kiwi forward said the main difference between life at Concord and Red Hill was the increased level of "professionalism" up north.

Told about the comment, Woods - who is in contention to become the first prop in history to win the Dally M Medal - said: "Ah Blairy. No one is really worried about him, we're just worried about our job. He will be one of the players to watch for us knowing, when he was here and played against Melbourne, it was one of his better games playing against his old club.

"If he didn't prepare well, that's probably up to him. The standards we've got here are really high that we set for ourselves. We've got a new coach now, there's a lot of change since he was here. That's his opinion, good luck to him."

The alarming thing is, lots of players who leave our club go on to talk about how unprofessional we are and i don't think they do it to have a crack at they're former club, its happened too many times now with too many players. Especially lote, he's seen a few organisations in his time and obviously we aren't anywhere near the top of the pile. The Broncos on the other hand are a well oiled machine don't you worry about that, and they take no crap and expect nothing less from their team, if you don't perform at the Broncos there's someone else who will and your gone. They're winners, they just find a way to win even when they don't play well they still win, we play well and still lose thats the difference.
