    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.

    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

    I heard we signed Blair on a performance based contract.

    If he continues not to perform, he is guaranteed another year and incentives....certainly motivated him this year.

    If Blair isn't around next year, I'm gonna miss the following post-match posts:

    Changes for next week
    Out: Blair
    In: ANYONE ELSE
    That said, I'm excited for our next whipping boy to emerge. My bet is on Sinclair.

    Not directed at you general comment:

    Have those saying they are leaving, quitting, are done, told the Collingwood Football Club?
    No real point telling bigfooty, they should tell the Club directly.
    With a bit of luck, Some wet bag in the back office, might send a standard email, letter of regret and hope they see the Lever again soon.

    The people that keep saying they are done, quitting, why don't they just do it but not tell the internet crowd, like we can do anything about it. And to be less subtle, the Internet crowd don't actually care.
    They can jut go already. Free world.
    And somehow Collingwood will continue.

    Ps how many Richmond "I'm quitting" types are back now.

    Self interest, always back that horse, because at least you know it's the horse that's trying.

    Lol Saintly well played, straight through the cover fieldsman and out to the boundary.
    There are a lot of loudmouthed keyboard warriors around at this time of year especially.
