I was listening to NFL radio today and the topic was Diva Wide Receivers. It didn't take long for Steve Smith's name to come up and Amani Toomer said no doubt he was a Diva. He cited a game in 2008 when Steve was standing at midfield before the game pacing and talking to himself. He also brought up the punching of Ken Lucas which he thought happened during a game...

What do you guys think? I've never thought of Steve as a Diva. He's a complete nut, that is for certain but he doesn't fit the Terrel Owens/Chad Johnson mold. He's never bent the team over for money. He is a family man. Played with terrible Quarterbacks for most of his career and thanked them all when he hit 10,000 yards. He never threw Jake under the bus, he never publicly called out Jimmy. He does celebrate just about every catch he makes but it's more about energy than entertainment in recent years.

Like I said Steve can be crazy but he doesn't fall into a category. He is one of a kind.

If the term "diva" is another word for Napoleon complex, then yes Smith is a diva.

Otherwise, no. Even the above might not be true anymore. He has cooled down a lot the past couple of years.

If talking to yourself = dominance, I think im gonna take a cue from Steve Smith.

Does he play wide receiver?

If so, there's a pretty good chance the answer is "yes".

Steve has SPS (short person syndrome) it's a devastating disorder causing you to be extra manly and mean all at the same time.....I know several small people that have this disorder and I hope Smitty never finds a cure.

Isn't a male a Divo and a female a Diva?

Are you calling Steve Smith a beeyatch?
