Huge news on a variety of news feeds today that Brandon Smith is set to leave the Storm, as he is pissed off with Cam Smith signing for another 2 years.

Disappointed it has come to this.

I have a social media post from Brandon's account that says he is not going anywhere "as loyalty is in his blood"

If "variety" means that The Mole wrote it on Wide Wank of Sports and you wrote it here, then yes it's been on a variety of news feeds today.

However, since since you have made 5 posts in 2 years -three of them in the last three days and all of them negative at best and click bait at worst - and since "variety" normally indicates an extensive range (not just you and some gutter journalist); I think it's far more reasonable to assume that you are a troll.

Geez as soon as I heard Cam Smith wanted 2 years instead of 1 you just new some idiot would make this sh!t up. First place I seen reporting this was a fake James Hooper twitter account that everybody seemed to think was the real James Hooper. Then the Mole got a hold of it. Makes me laugh sometimes

Skipper Smith hoses down rumours of rift with Storm’s young hooker
Melissa Woods AAP
31 Jan 2019

If there is one person who could’ve taken Cameron Smith’s re-signing badly it’s deputy hooker Brandon Smith, but the Storm insist the young Kiwi international has no intention of leaving the club.

Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy has denied New Zealand Test hooker Brandon Smith wants out of the Storm following Cameron Smith’s decision to extend his playing career.

There were reports the 22-year-old was upset by the skipper’s shock call to play on until the end of the 2020 season, with the youngster forced to bide his time with a bench role until then.

Brandon Smith, who was part of the Storm’s grand final team, could walk into a starting role in almost any other side.

He starred in the Kiwis’ 26-24 victory over the Kangaroos last October in his first Test match.

Bellamy said he had reassured the youngster of his value to the club and there was no chance he would be leaving, with his deal tying him to Melbourne until the end of 2022.

“We had a good conversation about a couple of things and I don’t think there was anything to sort out — he needed a bit of a clear mind on what was happening.

“Now he has, he’s very happy and he ain’t going nowhere,” Bellamy said on Thursday.

Captain Smith said his namesake was upset by the reports he wanted out of the club and had sought him out.

“That’s come from somewhere other than Brandon because he was quite upset when he was told about that and he came and grabbed me to reassure me he was very happy playing here and with me playing on,” he said.

I hate the way some jounalists have framed this. There was never a suspected 'rift' between the Smiths. There was rumour and innuendo circulated by proven sh*t sources.

All from a bloody parody twitter account. Should never have had to address this bs in the first place.
