    Meh, I think it's kind of cute. Maikng something up to deliberately provoke the reaction is cruel, but the genuine emotional reaction of childhood like that is sweet. YMMV.

    The audio is on this link: http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/...c-d5fb53d0d877

    Smith: “Oh. See, you guys got me in trouble. I’m getting pulled over by the police.”
    Host: “Right now? While we are talking to you?”
    Smith: “Yup.”
    Host: “Were you speeding?”
    Smith: “No, I’m not speeding. I guess I’m on my cellphone. … How about I keep you on hold while I go through the procedure?”

    It did turn my opinion on him. I've always respected his ability as a player, but the stories about the fights with his teammates and opponents kind of soured me on him. I wasn't 100% anti Ravens signing him, but I didn't really want them to.

    He definitely comes across as a much more subdued and intelligent individual in that interview. He makes a good point in it that people only see 2 hours of him on Sundays, maybe 20 minutes of interviews a month and that's not enough to judge a person. And he's absolutely right.

    Put me in the camp that Gavin's dad is a douche. It's one thing sharing embarassing videos or pictures with the family. But that's not what he did. He set it up so he could record it, knowing that the news was going to crush his son, and he did it with the intent of sharing it with the entire world. And while I don't know for sure, I would guess he also probably did it with the expectation to "profit" from it with some Smith/Ravens swag and a meeting. Douche move.

    Yeah it was a pretty good interview. By the way he also talks about his wife of 14 years, his son in high school and daughter in 7th grade. I thought I read earlier in this thread that they were expecting their first child but maybe that was a confusion with Torrey.

    He is/was expecting a child, Steve Smith Jr apparently. Still not sure if his eldest sons name, which i thought was steve smith Jr. Also has a daughter and possibly another son, but im not sure if that was counting the yet to be born or if hes expecting a 4th child.

    Regardless, he comes off as a much more mature person and family man, that recognizes his mistakes/downfalls. His charitable contributions shouldnt be overlooked either. Theres reason why that fan base has stuck by him so strongly.

    Quick note about SmithSr...at age 35, I like him to win vs. most #2 CBs. I not talking 6 / 105 / 1 every game, but rather a nice 66-69% catch rate.

    If SmithSr still draws #1s then I like Torrey in year 4 vs. #2s much better than I did when he was last [consistently] drawing #2s back in his second year.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Most long tenured athletes tend to do this, but just another point in the character column for Mr. Smith, Sr.:

    Yes, but it may get a little awkward for him when he has to show off his Super Bowl ring, as a Raven, in Charlotte ... Bc
