Who do u replace him with genius????
Who is a BETTER option???
Don't say junior moors u need to suggest a first grade player

I thought we bought a first grade player in Blair. We replace him with a player that has passion for the tigers. We can't carry someone underperforming consistently when they take out so much of our salary cap and have still 3 1/2 years of contract to run. Either motivate him or factor him out. He is a professional I can't go for all that crap that he needs to work his way into our playing style. Ship up or ship out but we are left with the bill - and you are deluding yourselves if you think he has been playing like a $500k signing the last 8 weeks while we were winning !

While he had a shocker today I will not believe this crap about him not being passionate, fair dinkum!
If u had a shocker at work after 7weeks of really good improvement would u should u be sacked??!!!
I'm very glad he's in the side, u can't measure how much the players were affected by Sonia's passing today, very tight knit!
Missing rob was big today

The pack overall, was off a bit today, Blair was just the worst, although Iosefa came a very close second.

Blair played his usual game just a few extra errors for the home crowd. Will never be dropped.
Best forwards Woods and Gallaway. Probably missed Fulton as well.

Not the best thread is it. Sounds like anger. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Players like Blair don't get dropped... They get pulled aside on Thursday and given 1-2 kpi's for the next game to execute.

His defence was shocking today and he got caught up in niggle rubbish which resulted in penalties... He will bounce back next week!

I reckon a lot of the niggle\anger with Blair had to with what happened with Robbie as well

It's hard to deal with those emotions ,especially when it happens suddenly

Anger and bitterness is usually your first reaction

Did not play that well today, however he had a few mates as well.

He has been playing great lately and you would not drop him for quids. Wise up, your prejudice is showing.

Why did LOTE not dropped earlier then. He had 3 real stinkers in a row.
They wont be dropped sause theyre marquee signings, much like Benji & Robbie and Beau & Tim.....they dont get dropped.

Oh, and its not just one bad game is it?

That said....nows not the time for sacking players, forget today you cant really take too much out of what went down

He had a shocker against the Roosters but I dont think he deserves to be dropped. His recent form has been improving week by week. It was a traumatic time for the club and I hope its just a hiccup. A bit much calling for him to be dropped IMO.

He certainly had my blood boiling a couple times in the game, like when he tried that ridiculous offload on an early tackle in excellent field position, which he then compounded by giving a ridiculous penalty.

If we had a couple more clear heads out there, the game could have been very different...

Going by his posts he wouldn't be able to read the contract !
