    That was his point of difference.
    Rreally long kick even on his left foot.

    Very under rated. I forget at times too when thinking about past players.

    As far as F/S is concerned, we need to pair him with a 6 foot 6 inch woman, and a stepladder.

    I wish he wouldn't slide in to peoples legs. He's given take out someones ACL if he doesn't stop. Thought he was our worst yesterday but oddly enough it wasn't a horrible game from Blair.

    Not tall enough.
    We need to produce an average size player, not another midget.




    (Geez I'm gunna get in trouble for using the "m" word.)

    No one can ever question his commitment. But the sliding into the legs is a tactic of a now bygone era.
    One of my biggest issues when we play Blair is the way he changes our in50 entries.
    For some reason, we believe he is a leading forward and the players kick it to him on the lead time and time again.
    Invariably he loses the ball and we get done on the rebound.
    Why he even leads is beyond me. He is a crumber, not a marker. 150 games and he still doesn't understand........

    Margo Dydek was 7' 2" but alas she has died a while back. Played highest level basketball.

    She's 50 now so young Jarryd just has to think French macron and off he goes.

    Very happy to see Blairy get his 150th game and his team mates rally to get a win in homage to his contribution to the club over the years. Played an okay game but realistically should be heading back to the VFL this week. Greenwood, Broomhead and Phillips all offer more, Wills needs some senior reward, Kirby, Brown and Daicos all need senior exposure and time for Blairy to again do the team thing and vacate his senior spot.

    Great goals.
    Against Essendon, Carlton, StKilda.
    Powerhouses of the league the past half decade.....

    Yeah I guess there is not much to see here.

    Still the goals you knock

    The St Kilda one you say wasn't against a powerhouse was in a Grand Final, still only a drawn one, still take it away and we don't win the flag.
    Carlton goals , a couple of them were from the day he kicked 5 against the baggars in a season they finished 5th on the ladder. I would never be unhappy with a Collingwood player turning it on against the Blues
    One of the Essendon ones was the winning goal when we beat the Bombers by a point on ANZAC day. Only match the Dons lost in the 1st 9 rounds that season. What a fantastic moment that was, one any Pie fan would recall instantly.

    Even the amazing GWS snap from the boundary last season when they had been undefeated at home and we're sitting 2nd on the ladder was.............

    Yeah I guess you are right, pretty pedestrian highlight reel.

    Have always liked Blairy.
    Great story coming off the rookie list after sustained good form for 12-18 months in the VFL. Timed his run perfectly and was involved in a premiership.

    150 games of AFL is a great effort and it's hard to question his endeavour and commitment.

    When watching him in the side of late, I just don't see a position for him... up forward we have Elliott, Fasolo and hopefully Kirby, Daicos start getting games soon.

    He isn't a backman.

    We have enough midfielders and most of which would be played in front of him.

    Sadly I think Blairys senior game time is numbered but would love to see him stay on at the club in the VFL. If he played a full season in the VFL I would actually back him in for the league B&F. Looks a class above VFL but a class below AFL.

    I thank him for his input.
    Got the last bit of his ability out of himself.

    And like very few on here, if any, has played 150 games plus for Collingwood, and a premiership player.

    So no doubt that is well achieved.

    I dips my lid to him, whilst it's true not my first picked, still congratulations. He achieved the ultimate.
