Alex Mack-Shaun Smith genital-grabbing rivalry resumes

AP

In 2009, Alex Mack and Shaun Smith were teammates in Cleveland, going head-to-head in practice every day. In 2010 Smith had moved on to the Chiefs, and when they met on the field Mack accused Smith of grabbing his genitals.

Now Smith is playing defensive tackle for the Titans, and Mack is still the center for the Browns, coming off a Pro Bowl season in 2010. They’ll meet again on Sunday, and Smith says he’s planning to treat Mack the way he always treated him.

“During his rookie year, I used to tell him he should give his money back. I used to tell him he wasn’t worth a first-round pick,” Smith told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “It’s nothing personal or anything like that. That’s just how I felt. . . . He didn’t say nothing. I mean, I was kicking his [butt] the whole camp and I had a good game when we played them last year.”

Yes, Smith had a good game against Mack — except the whole genital grabbing thing. How does Smith explain that?

“You can’t believe everything you hear,” Smith said. “The league sorted it all out — no fine.”

It’s true that the league didn’t fine Smith after Mack’s accusation, but that was because they couldn’t find a replay angle that definitively showed Smith grabbing Mack’s junk, not because they cleared him of wrongdoing. And considering that a week later another player made the same accusation against Smith, and this time there was video and Smith was fined, Smith probably shouldn’t be too gleeful about the whole thing.

Smith says he was “a little bitter” when the Browns cut him, but he adds that “I got the last laugh at the end of the day.” As Mack prepares to play against his old teammate and nemesis, he’s hoping he’ll be able to say the same thing at the end of the day on Sunday.

  1. i am a browns fan and this joker was a jackass from day 1, so glad when they cut him, he is a loser, and will always be a loser. its punks like this that need to be banned from the sport, “junk” grabbing, really? i’m sure we will see him behind bars shortly so no worries.

  2. “I got the last laugh by grabbin’ my home boy’s nuts…ya heaRd?” – Shaun Smith

    “yeah?…. you sure showed them.”
    – everyone on earth.

  3. you know… I think I can forgive Favre for wearing purple now.

    I feel like my spirit is at peace in the knowledge that, “hey, he whooped us in 09′. Payback on his former team, etc. but at least he wasn’t playing pocket pool with Ryan Pickett or something.”

    …I couldn’t imagine the horror in Pickett’s eyes if that had happened…. The Horror….
    (the doors “the end”)

    Shuan Smith: “I love the smell of sweaty nuts in the morning….”

  4. No, Smith wasn’t cleared of grabbing Mack’s
    junk because there was “no definitive replay
    angle…”

    No, Smith got off because he WAS able to
    prove that he had bought Mack dinner and
    a movie, beforehand.

  5. Shaun Smith is a loudmouth journeyman who always overstates and underperforms. I hope the Browns watch the tape of Balitmore’s blocking techniques on the Steelers in week one and gives big mouth Smith some of the same medicine. There’s a reason this guy is with his FOURTH team now. He’s all fizz, no gin.

  6. Best descrition of Shaun Smith I ever heard was,

    ” Here’s aguy who’s never done ANYTHING in the NFL but talks like he’s been to six pro bowls.”

    Just imagine all the balls he’ll be able to grab then!

  8. Word out of Denver is Brady Quinn wishes he got a junk-grab from Smith, instead of a weight in the face.

  9. September is testicular cancer awareness month.

    Smith was just trying to help a few ex-teammates remain check for lumps.

  10. shaun smith? that fat load is still in the league?

    the next pro bowl he goes to will be his first. mack’s been to one in his two years in the league.

    as mike holmgren and tom heckert obviously know, getting rid of fat, lazy, selfish, unmotivated slobs like shaun smith is making the BROWNS a better team.

    Best damn line I ever seen! Kudos!

    GO BROWNS!!!

  12. Shawn Smith never lasts more that two years on any team. What does that tell you? His comment about dominating Mack are nothing more than his own egotistical fodder and probably rooted in his own jealousy that Mack was going to be really good and get a long term contract when he himself could never achieve that. The fact that it was proven that he was grabbing other players junk and trying to rip it off illustrates perfectly that this is a real low-life piece of dirt. I mean really…what more do you need to know???

  13. “…And considering that a week later another player made the same accusation against Smith, and this time there was video and Smith was fined, Smith probably shouldn’t be too gleeful about the whole thing.

    ….but he adds that “I got the last laugh at the end of the day.”
    ————————————————-

    Multiple accusations over grabbing other dudes’ junk? Video proof of one occurrence of him grabbing someone’s package? A fine leveled by his employer over it? That’s “last laugh” material?

    Welcome to Bizzaroworld; Population: Shaun Smith.

  14. Shaun Smith could have been a great player, but his attitude is so bad that he can’t even let himself be good, let alone great. He’ll make one amazing play every two or three weeks then he rests on that until the heat gets back on him. He was on a local call in show in cleveland and he did not hide the fact that he cares about nobody but himself.
