Ravens receiver Torrey Smith feels that the incident involving teammate Jacoby Jones getting hit in the head with a champagne bottle by a woman named “Sweet Pea,” is only being blown up because the media got a hold of it.
“It’s only bad because someone went and ran to TMZ,” Smith said Tuesday at a Habitat for Humanity construction project, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “If no one knew, it wouldn’t be an issue. We would resolve it in the locker room. It’s resolved anyways. We just have to deal with the questions from the media. I think it’s funny that we’re doing this, building a home, one day after everybody found out about the other thing. We all know it comes with the territory. Everybody is doing a great job.”
“We have great leadership, so to say because of one incident, that it’s a leadership issue, to me, is a joke because everyone is not going to always be around and incidents happen,” Smith said. “Stuff happens in the locker room, stuff happens in the spur of the moment. Now, if it happens every week, all the time, then that’s a problem. For one incident to happen and say it’s a leadership issue when most of the team wasn’t there, it’s an overreaction.”
