Another practice fight for Steve Smith

stevesmith AP

Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith has once again found himself involved in a fight on the practice field.

This time, according to the Ravens’ website, Smith and cornerback Chykie Brown were engaged in a physical blocking drill, got overly heated and started swinging at each other. They had to be separated by teammates.

Tempers were heated at the Ravens’ practice, as coach John Harbaugh threw Brown out of practice when he kicked a football in frustration after dropping an interception, and Harbaugh even yelled at defensive coordinator Dean Pees for not keeping Brown in line.

For Smith, getting heated at practice is par for the course. He also got into a fight with cornerback Lardarius Webb during a June practice, and Smith had some significant incidents during his years in Carolina, getting disciplined for punching teammates on two different occasions. The Ravens knew they were getting a feisty competitor when they signed Smith, and that’s exactly what he’s been in practice.

    Steve Smith is the perfect player to bring in if you quietly hate your defensive backs.

  3. psj3809 says: Aug 3, 2014 4:49 PM

    Will he ever learn? This was from his time at Carolina…

    “Smith was involved with an altercation with his teammate Anthony Bright during a film-room meeting. Smith was suspended after that incident, which left Bright with a fractured orbital lobe. Smith was arrested and briefly jailed on charges of misdemeanor assault, and the Panthers suspended him for one game”

    Maybe Smith should take a swing at Ray Rice?!

    I really hope the ravens play the seahawks this year. Love to see him and sherman mic’d up vs one another.

    The Ravens seem to be a little off right now.

    At least he didn’t punch a woman.

    These guys need to carry their pieces with them onto the practice field and settle their differences like real men.

    (Not really.)

  17. corkspop says: Aug 3, 2014 5:13 PM

    This was predictable. It’s the cost of having a good WR with a short fuse.

  18. ccc23454 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:14 PM

    its one thing to get heated and fired up in camp but punches… but there is a reason Carolina had no problem with Steve moving on, diminishing skills and you don’t want him as the face of your franchise because of this kind of stuff.

  19. rjkilla says: Aug 3, 2014 5:16 PM

    i love how there’s dozens of camp fights every year but when smitty is involved out come the name calling blowhards. cheetoh fingers be quiet

  20. kepickle says: Aug 3, 2014 5:21 PM

    as a Panther Fan it was easy to deal with this when Smith was a super star but now he’s a old man in NFL yrs AND some wondered why Panthers Current GM called him a distraction in the Locker room

  21. deathonwings410 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:21 PM

    About time we have a WR with attitude again. After Boldin left we were left a bunch of nice young guys who lack attitude.

    Steve Smith is so lucky he has NFL talent. With that temper he’d more than likely be behind bars if he were just some guy on the street.

  29. bobbyyyd says: Aug 3, 2014 5:32 PM

    Good riddance. He will do this every game Baltimore fans. Most games last season he got in more arguments with other DBS than catches

  30. einherjer00 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:34 PM

    Two football players got heated and swung at each other?? In training camp??? One is a repeat offender?? Good god almighty what is the world coming to?!?! I don’t know if I can watch a game of jacked up guys in body armor slamming into each other if it’s full of hotheaded characters like this.

  31. numberoneinthehoodg says: Aug 3, 2014 5:35 PM

    Another practice fight? When’s the main event? Who’s his rival? Is it going to be on PPV? I ain’t paying for PPV.

  32. asmodeus1971 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:35 PM

    This is normal in football and stories like this one are just what happens when places get sports writers who thought chess club was a sports team in high school and deserved varsity letters.

  33. 13arod says: Aug 3, 2014 5:36 PM

    Oh the ravens have so many players that don’t show respect still classless ravens stay classless

  34. diehardpanther says: Aug 3, 2014 5:38 PM

    It’s the kind of thing you put up with when he is flirting with 2000 yard seasons, the player he is now gets sent packing.

  35. ne1551 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:40 PM

    Punks, wife beaters, convicted felons, drug users, PED users, the Ravens have plenty of role models. Just the type of players you want your kids to look up to!

  36. 941bucs says: Aug 3, 2014 5:41 PM

    This. Is. Sparta! But once again, what do you expect when you have literally the best and biggest grown men in the world fighting for their roster spot, and in turn, their big ol contract. Any man would throw down for possible millions

  37. johnnyballsack says: Aug 3, 2014 5:43 PM

    Always great to see that Harbaugh has brought in more “character guys who are beyond reproach” just like the rest of the team. At least he will fit in with the rest of his inmates… I mean teammates.

  38. mdd913 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:44 PM

    Same old act. You can take the punk out of Carolina….

  39. purpleguy says: Aug 3, 2014 5:46 PM

    Don’t most guys named Chykie get punched on the practice field?

    God-del how do you like how all that anger management classes Smith took has worked out?

  42. umadiwon says: Aug 3, 2014 5:55 PM

    The only team Steve Smith should be on is the security team at the club…since he wants to fight so much….idiot. THEY ARE YOUR TEAMMATES.

  43. scw1993 says: Aug 3, 2014 5:58 PM

    Clueless ravens now have many faces for their classless franchise that they can choose from: ozzie gruesome, ray wife beater, ray ray murderer, anger management eligible steve, and the 4 or 5 other losers who were arrested recently.

    Raven’s fans: “stop picking on ray, his wife tripped on something in the elevator, fell backward, and hit her head until she became unconscious, you weren’t there, blah blah.” Deny and defend.

  44. titimium says: Aug 3, 2014 6:19 PM

    If another player kicks his ass will they be called feisty competitor ?

  46. jukeboxhero101 says: Aug 3, 2014 6:23 PM

    I wonder if any of the ravens players have ever heard of taking a deep breath and counting to ten.

  47. ravenswinsuperbowl47 says: Aug 3, 2014 6:24 PM

    Exactly the type of revved up player the Ravens needed at WR. Not quite another Anquan Boldin, but not far off. Couple Smith with the strongest arm in the NFL, Torrey Smith, and other weapons, and Kubiak replacing the moribund offensive “leadership” of the over-rated Jim Caldwell, the Ravens offense should be a force.

    Playoffs for sure, AFC North probably. Maybe, just maybe, Smith makes the difference towards the Ravens securing their 2nd Lombardi Trophy in 3 seasons, 3rd overall, and Baltimore’s 6th NFL Championship since the Greatest Game Ever Played by Johnny U and Alan Ameche in 1958. Nobody believed that Harbaugh, Flacco, Ngata, Suggs, Pitta etc could do it in 2013, either.

    Dont care what anyone says, 89 is the man. Miss you Smitty.

    HOF

  51. alaskazz says: Aug 3, 2014 6:42 PM

    As a Panther’s fan, I truly miss the guy. He is one of the nicest guys around when is “not at work”. He, however, plays and practices at an intensity level that is unmatched. And when he gets in the DBs heads enough for then to challenge him, it drives him to another level where he rarely loses the matchup.

  52. mrbiggstuff says: Aug 3, 2014 6:44 PM

    Ray Rice can’t understand why one man would want to hit another man, when hitting a woman is so much easier.

    I can always learn something, but I already know knives are for dead neat and hitting women us not something a real man does, and finally the the Ravens and their fans love their criminals.

    A least Smith is not hitting his wife!

  54. scoobies05 says: Aug 3, 2014 7:00 PM

    just wondering…all of you trolls commenting on a meaningless practice fight…what do you say when it’s your team involved? as far as commenting on Ray Lewis. that’s just sad and pathetic at this point. he’s retired, and the two people actually tried for those deaths were found not guilty due to self defense. meaning that if the two dead guys didn’t start the fight then they would possibly still be alive today. Ray Rice..now no one is defending his actions. pick on him all you want. hopefully he is true to his word and this type of thing never happens again. only time will tell. ravens are classless? that’s just laughable. they are no better or worse than any other team in the league.

  55. fansrus says: Aug 3, 2014 7:14 PM

    Why the hell does anyone care who these guys are or what they did or didn’t do or what they have to say about anythin. If you don’t have $ on the game or in a fantasy league, why the hell are you rooting or even watching? P.S. Do you know that in the course of a 3 hour plus NFL game that there are about 12 minutes of actual game time action?

  56. akboot says: Aug 3, 2014 7:15 PM

    Napoleon complex?………..No doubt.

  57. Nofoolnodrool says: Aug 3, 2014 7:18 PM

    @scoobies you must have had you head inside your shell for the last week to say no one is defending a Rice. Oh wait you always fail to see anything that puts the ravens in a bad light, but are always looking to point out the trolls who are telling the truth. The a Rice situation made my day as it proved what I have been saying …the Aravens are a classless franchise …fans players owner and head coach. The joke of the NFL….The Raven Nation

  58. codythao35 says: Aug 3, 2014 7:26 PM

    It’s obvious why the Panthers didn’t want him. Low class guy period!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. tooz72 says: Aug 3, 2014 7:28 PM

    He’ll be incarcerated 6 months after he’s done playing

  60. winninaintsinnin says: Aug 3, 2014 8:27 PM

    Smith would have a ring if he played for the Hawks. Of course he would have gotten it from the bench.

  61. execution52 says: Aug 3, 2014 8:40 PM

    Reality is,he was brung here for his talents.People get on these boards & act like a bunch of WUSS! You have a main guy in Steve Smith & a maybe Chykie Brown,if Steve gets hurt,what happen from there? Or Chykie who’s fighting to be the 3rd corner & see a opportunity to get paid like Graham.Both are them fightning to compete.If you any of your played sports,this happens all around in sports.Especially,football & basketball because guys are playing close to one another.Smith have a few dollars & now Chykie see what Graham made be a 3rd DB,so,he feels he can do the same for his family.

  62. rhinojr says: Aug 3, 2014 9:05 PM

    Steve Smith a very good player who had the worst collection of QB I’ve ever seen.

    Stop hating him.. guy plays !!

  63. dubblelznhell says: Aug 3, 2014 9:35 PM

    Seems like whenever his practice antics come to light, the teams he is on does pretty well that year…

  64. jmblosser82 says: Aug 3, 2014 9:42 PM

    ravenswinsuperbowl47, S Smith is in the down slide of his career, T Smith doesn’t take over a game, and I could be wrong but I seem to remember all the praise Caldwell got after he replaced Cam but after Flacco once again underperformed and/or fell on his face Caldwell became the scapegoat. The above average QB getting top money is more than likely the issue and once all the restructuring starts to get that big cap number down the Ravens will be seeing more sub.500 seasons again.

    I see the Ravens fighting for third in the North with the Browns. Bengals win the division and go 1 and done for a fourth straight year.

  65. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Aug 3, 2014 10:41 PM

    In Carolina, if Smith didn’t get into at least one fight in camp then fans were concerned that he had been traded or something.

  66. scoobies05 says: Aug 3, 2014 10:45 PM

    coming from a fan of a team that still employs Ben, your comments are useless. so keep on believing that your team is any better than any other team

  67. scoobies05 says: Aug 3, 2014 10:47 PM

    jm please educate yourself. the flacco contract has a 14 million dollar cap number this year

  68. crownofthehelmet says: Aug 3, 2014 11:13 PM

    A lower cap hit only means Flacco’s interceptions per $1M ratio will be higher than last year. You still get the same player.

  69. watermelon1 says: Aug 4, 2014 2:04 AM

    PLEASE Steve Smith… Just pop Flacco once. That’s all most of us want to see!

  70. bengalskuta82 says: Aug 4, 2014 8:11 AM

    Oh Steve. Cool your Jets

  71. rnine99 says: Aug 4, 2014 1:21 PM

    You’re supposed to be chippy in practice. Sometimes it gets out of hand. Whatever…

  72. jmblosser82 says: Aug 4, 2014 2:37 PM

    Scoobs, I said nothing about his cap hit this year, I said when the restructuring starts.

  73. Bull Rush says: Aug 4, 2014 3:20 PM

    “point out the trolls who are telling the truth”

    That’s an oxymoron. Like “absolutely likely” or “military intelligence”. Claiming you are taking the righteous route but then declaring an entire organization and fan base as classless without even acknowledging these are real people and they have good is itself pretty classless not to mention ignorant.

  74. scoobies05 says: Aug 4, 2014 7:13 PM

    fair enough jm. so you are saying the Ravens will struggle to reach .500 like the Steelers?

  75. jmblosser82 says: Aug 4, 2014 9:06 PM

    Scoobs, the Steeler offense is in better shape then the Ravens but on defense the Ravens will have the edge. The Ravens had 2 of the 3 worst YPC RBs in the league last year, added an over the hill WR that had 745 yards and 4 TDs in the regular season and 74 yards and 1 TD in the playoffs, and TE that’s over the hill.

    The Steelers are in better shape to make a playoff run. Young on both sides of the ball with 2 veteran cornerstones on each side of the ball.

  76. pete2211 says: Aug 6, 2014 9:59 PM

    I would hope Steve would lose that temper but just not in the cards, I guess. His behavior will divide the team and when you do not have a team that is together and in sync you go nowhere except to the next brawl.

  77. tata9064 says: Aug 8, 2014 2:24 AM

    The Ravens are lucky to get Steve Smith and the Panther fans are just jealous because they know they lost a good receiver! He may be feisty, but he is all heart!!!
