Some great nostalgic quotes/videos from Smitty here. Sort of a brief history of his "altercations" over the years, on the field and off.

 

 

 

Steve Smith vs. Referees and the Infirm

Here's Smith after a 2011 loss to the Vikings: "If the ref says it’s holding, I can sit here and say this and that. But at the end of the day he’s the guy with the flag and he calls it ... I got a few texts already saying in the HD it didn’t look too bad. But for a 70-year-old man gimping down the field, I guess that’s what he saw."

 

 

Nothing brand new here, but entertaining nonetheless. This stuck out to me:

 

 

This is the you-get-half-a-bar of peer reviews if there ever was one. Football is supposed to be about individual battles and team wars and all that, but few NFL players actually exemplify that conflict and turmoil, nor show their emotion and passion inherent in living that kind of life, quite like Smith does. He is one of the more bracingly human athletes that I can remember watching.
