    I can’t believe all this hate towards this hard working journalist. I used to be like you sheeple and not believe what I read on the interweb but I won’t make that mistake again.

    I know this story is true and I hope this fractured friendship destroys the QLD team for years to come.

    So he heard from his dogs best friends owners step uncle that Smith didn't send Slater a Christmas Card this year.

    Danny Weidler probably thinking I'm going to make this story up just before origin

    Don't worry about it. He's just stuck on the "fired up" setting and no one can find the remote.

    Isn't it obvious? Smith has no time for Leaguie mates anymore. He's got all those AFL mates to gang out with now. Who's got the time. Bigger fan base bigger parties. No brainer really.

    Pass the credit card and mirror lads. I brought my own straw.

    Fake rumours about two grubby flogs. Fascinating.

    The identity of the lucky girl isn't really known but it's pretty common knowledge around the club that this is what happened. There is no other logical explanation. The bloke did the off season as 5/8 alongside Cleary and was going the better of the two, then suddenly he was in reserve grade and then out the door.

    It's not the "only logical" explanation. It's been debunked by non other then Phil Gould himself

    Think about it for a minute. Speaking for the Penrith club, he couldn't exactly confirm it, now could he? Not only exposing the club to legal action but identifying innocent parties in the playing group who would already have been suffering considerable grief. For the same reasons (mainly the first one) the media had to keep mum. They would have known.

    What other logical explanation do you have? A falling out with the coach? That would have been all over the media a la Elijah Taylor. There was no explanation given whatsoever for dropping then releasing a quality player who was performing well.
