It’s Wednesday and Steve Smith is still mad at Rams CB Janoris Jenkins. In fact, Smith is so mad that CBS Sports is reporting that Smith decided to rip Jenkins again to the media. Smith did an interview with a local Charlotte radio station and of course he was asked why he wanted to punch Jenkins.This is what Smith had this to say.
“When I go against the opponent I talk and I may say hey I beat you and any of that stuff. But I’m not going to Google a guy’s wife’s name and try to find out little things. It wasn’t just him, it was other guys on that defense that was saying it. And just to go to that extent. I talk mess and I love talking mess and that’s part of the game. But I would never walk up to a guy — first of all I don’t really know outside of watching him on video — and Google his wife’s name and her birthday and call her outside of her name and call that in the jest of sportsmanship or gamesmanship. That’s not my deal. I take that as clear disrespect. I feel like when you don’t respect somebody well there’s nothing much left. So if I don’t respect you and you don’t respect me there aren’t any rules, there aren’t any guidelines. I didn’t like that. Second of all, i’m 34 years old. You’re a couple of years older than my youngest son. We’re not on the same level.”
Smith clearly has a lot of animosity for Jenkins, but after going on about respect opposing players’ families, Smith ended the interview by throwing a low blow at Jenkins about his kids.
“It sounds like he needs to wear some condoms. That’s what it sounds like he needs to wear.”
Smith totally contradicted everything his said in his radio rant because I’m guessing he found out that Jenkins had multiple children by turning to Google.
