    In the age of grovelling apologies, Smith will now get his from Channel Nine. Obviously having a sooky hissy fit pays dividends in the end. What I want to know is when do we get ours for the 2013 GF?

    It's all about the McKinnon incident. They had a 60mins segment on it about 6-9mths ago which showed Smith in a very negative light. (which he says he wasn't given the right to respond).

    Since then he has refused to talk to Ch.9. That includes everyone. He wont talk to Fittler or Johns on the sideline, nothing.

    Probably get down voted for this but I am backing Cam Smith on this one

    Edit: reason for this was the Sensationalistic journalism from channel 9 over this incident

    Well that explains the over the top ad on tv last night about Smith being on the footy show tonight. Thought it was strange they were making such a big deal about him being on. Now i know why

    Meanwhile... how is Alex McKinnon doing?? :confused:

    I'm no fan of Channel 9 but surely that is more important than an apology to Smith.

    Sorry Scam Smith.

    Sorry that you're a grub who unfortunately gets away with more than most on the field because you are part of the NRL's secret "Protected Species" file (this also includes others such as Thurston, referees etc).

    Sorry that you knowingly signed two separate contracts with the Storm and basically got away with cheating, again thanks to the NRL and their attitude of protecting the players in these situations even if they are guilty.

    Sorry that you can't take fans heckling you and that you have to resort to kicking the ball directly at them.....something for which you were not punished by the NRL (twice apparently). Some role model as the Australian team captain.

    Without being even close to a bleeding heart and not wanting to confuse sport and current affairs I find it hard to fathom how ch9 can apologise to Smith yet leave an Aussie in a Lebanese gaol as a result of a botched kidnapping due to a chase for ratings. Still I'm not surprised

    I will not watch anything that scumbag is on. Storm games have been axed in this house for yonks. They wonder why test matches aren't pulling crowds anymore, it would help if the captain wasn't a filthy hated grub.

    Despite how much of a grub he is (and there is no doubt about that) after he was ripped to shreds by 60 minutes he should have been offered at least the chance to reply.

    The fact he was not is just another example of the shody "reporting" by that program.
