    There were multiple reports Thursday night that he had announced he wasn't coming back. Yet the consensus whining about the media is that he wasn't a 'diva' until after the Jets drafted him and there were no negative stories reported before he was drafted, only after. Yet everyone was reporting the story that he was taking his ball and going home in a huff before the Jets had anything to do with him. So bit of an impossibility there, can't have it both ways.
    It's a leading question that presupposes he intended on leaving. I would think anyone would at least consider leaving after a day like he had, but did at any point did he actually decide to leave? I'm not that convinced.

    Keep in mind, I've no horse in this race, I'm not a Jets fan (or particularly a Smith backer). And I certainly could be completely wrong.

    To me all of this Smith coverage just reeks of lazy, hack journalism (so pretty much the usual ESPN type coverage)

    That answer acknowledges that he planned on not coming back and his mind was changed. If not he would have said something like "I always planned to come back, those reports were not true despite the fact that I told Suzy Kolber of ESPN that I was going home and not coming back".
