    If Blair survives a cull because he is a good mentor and club man then Brent McCaffer should still be on the books too.

    Blairy, still opening up 7 year old wounds. God bless him.

    According to an AFL.com article about 2018 free agents, Blair is listed as one of them for Collingwood. So unfortunately, I assume he was given a two year contract at the end of last season, or they gave him an extra year through this season. :(

    Didn't even reach the F/S 100 games at either the Pies (69 games) or Freo (99 games) so even his post career breeding doesn't help us.

    I'm no fan of his but it depends on what else is available. If there's no-one worth a list spot then I guess another year on minimum wages could be justified.

    Only to be used in case of emergency and most of the year in the twos. That's not my preference though.

    Problem is that he was an "in case of emergency" this year and was still used despite there being no emergency for his type of player to come in.

    I did a search on Blair's contract and this article (http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/a...7/news-story/e80bb5d9a5803334d41a926ac55fd35e) dated March of this year, suggests he signed a one year deal:

    In addition to that, there's this article (http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-09-05/full-list-of-2017s-remaining-free-agents) that only lists Goldy, Keeffe, Sinclair and Thomas as our FAs.

    Either the club has secretly signed him up for another year or the AFL website has it completely wrong. Here's hoping for the latter..

    Mick Gleeson of Fairfax confirmed in late July that he's contracted for 2018.



    We're stuck with him for another year...

    Just great. 3 spots on the 2018 list dedicated to Blair, Mayne and Oxley. Lovely.

    And people wonder why we're irrelevant with decisions like that.

    I can believe the Mayne deal and the fact we've got him for another 3 years, but Blair being contracted past this year, bullshit Mick.

    This right here sums up the inadequacy of our club in 2017. We have a guy that should be finished with us saying he's OOC, the club saying he's contracted and worst of all (contract or no contract) he's likely to be retained moving forward. This should just be the mother of all no brainer decisions, but you watch he'll be on the list for 2018. If it weren't so typically Collingwood it would be pretty funny.

    Yeah. Hilarious.

    I love Blairy - has tried his guts out for our club - but time to get real.

    Things aren't ever as bad as they seem, nor are they ever as good as they seem.

    Win games, all things good.
    Lose games, all things bad, sky falling
