Actually it isn't one season it is less than 5 incidences over a career that has spanned 11 seasons. And those 5 incidents are a thing of the past. Look at what TO is doing right now with his latest team and has been reported on in the last week. Like I said you will do anything to try and prove yourself right no matter what. Dregging up things from years ago hardly shows what kind of player or teammate Smith is now only that he made some mistakes and did some wrong things which he readily admits, The difference between Smith and a Diva is that a Diva doesn't think anything they have done is wrong and blames others for everything that goes wrong. Smith on the other hand admits when he is wrong like he did with Lucas and does what he can to make amends. So again your arguments about years ago or even using TO in the conversation is offbase and irrelevant. Don't let this stop you from a 100 more posts going back and forth to try and outlast anyone who argues with you. And feel free to get in the last word as always. But it won't make you right about Smith who is not a Diva and in my opinion never was. Smith has learned and grown and developed into a great player and teammate albeit without issues and troubles along the way. Anyone who doesn't see the difference between him and TO, well.... I suspect it is a waste of my time to discuss going forward.

Smith anger mangement issues have popped more times than 5 in his career.

That isn't an old issue....it is a Steve Smith issue. You accept that as part of the deal.

Yes, TO's problems did come back. A quiet season didn't erase who he proved to be.......just like 2011 doesn't erase Smitty's issues.

No big deal. Love Smith pending he is playing at a high level. He is.

off the field, he is honestly one of the quietest, nicest guys you have ever met. Once he gets on that uniform and get on the field he just explodes. I love it.

Steve Smith is only a diva if you have an incredibly broad definition of a diva with trees and branches and leaves and bird nests and christmas lights of extensions of different varieties of divas. Every person in the world could be called a diva if you broaden the definition enough. Having anger management issues and passion for the game doesn't make you a diva, at least not by the common standard. Steve's career doesn't illustrate a diva. 2 or 3 instances of punching someone doesn't make for a diva. Being introverted doesn't make for a diva. The combination of these traits doesn't make for a diva. He is one of the least "me first" players on the team.

As someone alluded to earlier, 5'9 WRs (or most receivers for that matter) don't go out of their way to block like he does. One of the most easily identifiable on-field traits of someone who is NOT "me first" is how willing they are to go out of their way to block when someone else's number is called for a play, and Smitty is head and shoulders above most non OL and TE offensive players in the league.

Definitely not a diva. You don't see him in interviews talking all about himself. He's very down to earth. On the field, he just is so hyped up and always plays with a chip. I see him more as a pissed off receiver who doesn't get the respect he deserves in the league and is still trying to go out and prove he's the best receiver in the game.
