    Internal fighting, so what.....

    As long as it is on the field, let the team decide his punishment...

    After punching teammate Ken Lucas, Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith was escorted off the field by Carolina general manager Marty Hurney, and then sent home. The team said they would handle it internally, but Smith has gotten violent with teammates before, and it's certainly possible he could be suspended for a game.

    at least he isn't kicking a Texan (but I enjoyed the penalty that hurt his team) (if memory serves me)

    Props to the Panthers for suspending him internally - without the NFL having to do it for them. Definitely shows they won't tolerate that crap.

    Crap. Suspending a player for 2 games for a little TC skuffle? Pretty lame to me. He's their best player.

    if the panthers are interested in trading him then I hope the Texans would at least have an interest in him. he does have on practice field issues but plays like a monster and with an attitude. we could use a little of that on offense, the exact opposite of AJ and perhaps a perfect compliment.

    Like every other front office, Smithiak would have an interest in him if he were available, but I doubt their interest would be commensurate with what the Panthers expect to get in return.

    Nah guh hpn.

    Just curious but what makes you think the Panthers would be interested in trading the catalyst for their Offense?

    The Panthers have no interest in trading Steve Smith, so keep dreaming. They wouldn't trade him even if he punched a teammate, coach, kitten, woman or baby in the eye.

    Sounds like it was worse than that... Smith himself said he has been fighting anger mgmt issues.

    I would think losing two game checks could be very theraputic

    OR just piss him off even more and lead to a downward spiral leading to a horrible incident involving some rubber tubing, duct tape, a bottle of Jack Daniels, and a some rope. And Roger Goodell.
