Last week, Panthers receiver Steve Smith made a bad decision to play flag football with adults.
This week, Giants receiver Steve Smith made a bad decision to play funny man regarding adultery.
In the wake of news that Tiger Woods will pay his ex-wife hundreds of millions in a divorce settlement, Smith (the New York one) had this to say on his Facebook page: “Big up to Tigers wife all she had to do is open her legs and say ‘I Do’ and now she’s one of the richest people in the world lol.”
For starters, his comment isn’t humorous. The bigger problem? Smith is suggesting that she somehow trapped Tiger in the hopes of cashing in. But she’s not the one who repeatedly and brazenly violated the marital vows; he did.
Tiger’s not the victim here. If he didn’t think he could honor his promises to his wife, he never should have gotten married. Especially when he knew that failure to do so would result in giving her a large chunk of his financial empire.
UPDATE: Smith has since deleted the post and wants to change the subject: “I was just joking around jeeeez!! whats everyone doin for the 4th??”
