Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Steve Smith Sr. was in a "fighting" kind of mood after Saturday's loss at the hands of the New England Patriots. The 35 year old, Smith Sr. was seen getting into a verbal spat with former Patriot, Jermaine Wiggins.

According to Felger and Massarotti, the fight was started with some good old fashioned name calling:

The former Sports Hub personality (Wiggins) in the past said something to the effect of Smith is a bully.

Like all news, it quickly traveled back to Smith (I am tired of adding Sr.). After catching wind, Steve Smith proceeded to confront Wiggins by the team buses.

Marc Bertand shares the story with Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti:

Bertrand: “Steve Smith Sr., after the game, was going over to the team buses, which are parked under the stands at Gillette Stadium, and Jermaine Wiggins was there. Wiggy was at the game. If you were there, you saw him on the sideline screaming at the crowd on the mic, trying to get people going.

Steve Smith and Wiggy were teammates back in Carolina [in 2002 and ’03]. Wiggy once upon a time on this very program called Steve Smith a bully, saying he’s a bad locker room guy and there’s plenty of evidence to support that claim. Somehow, that got back to Steve Smith. He approached Wiggy at Gillette Stadium after the game.”

Felger: “And Wiggy is standing there with his family, right?”

Bertrand: “With his family, his lovely wife and his boys were there, and they were at the game, and Wiggy was doing some media work as well. [Smith] approaches Wiggy and wants to talk about, ‘You called me a bully. I heard you called me a bully.’

To which, Wiggy said: ‘I did call you a bully. You know you are one.’

And I talked to Wiggy about it. He said at that point I thought he was, you know, just kind of busting chops and wasn’t like serious. Then all of a sudden, it got like really violent and he was in my face looking for a fight! He tried to fight Jermaine Wiggins after the game.

Prior to joining the Ravens, Smith was often described as a fiery player. His personality made him a perfect fit in Baltimore as he provided sparks on and apparently now, off the field.

What could've provoked Smith to engage in verbal fisticuffs with Wiggins? Was he pissed about the result of the game? Perhaps, he was upset with the service he received on Revis Island? Or maybe, just maybe, he was fully taking on the villainous personality that is associated with wearing a Ravens jersey?

Desperate for answers, I searched the interwebs and found a YouTube video that summed up the situation quite nicely.
