"I actually had an altercation with a guy who told me firsthand," Smith said Tuesday on NFL.com's "Dave Dameshek Football Program," although he didn't name the Saints player. "I was going out of bounds, and the guy went for my ankle. I said, 'Hey, man, cut that out.' He's like, 'Well, we get fined if we don't go after your legs when you go out of bounds.' ... And actually this past year, this last game when we played them, I had a little conversation with Gregg Williams. ... He took responsibility, he was saying it wasn't right, but that's who he was."

We're past the point of being surprised by the Saints' activities at this point. Would it seem out of character for Williams to have his players pay small fines if they didn't play with an edge?

The Carolina-New Orleans rivalry was re-ignited last season by a scuffle following a Smith touchdown celebration (not to mention a late hit by Saints safety Roman Harper). We won't have to wait long to see if Smith's words further inflame the matchup: The Saints head to Carolina in Week 2 next season.

The Saints just have to hope they have enough non-suspended players to field a defense that day.

Really? And I guess you have no problem believing that the players would just meekly pay up with out complaint.

How do these guys get away with publishing rubbish like this?

Is that what he was 'discussing' with SP when he went over to our bench for his little rant last year?
Classless POS.
Did he have a bounty on Jenkins when he pulled MJ down by the facemask, or what that free of charge?

I heard this on the Doug Gotlieb show also, not only did he say Fujita was one of the guys that did it, but he said it happened in 2005. Fujita wasnt even on the team in 2005. Steve Smith is a punk and just trying to keep the media thrashing alive.

Harper was penalized for that one if I recall correctly, which is the correct way to handle it. Penalties at the time of the infraction not 3 years later.
