WATCH: Stephen A. Smith rips Alabama fan who asks him to say 'Roll Tide!'
There is no off button with ESPN broadcaster Stephen A. Smith. The hardest-working man at ESPN is constantly on about something.
On Thursday, in between segments on “First Take,” Smith was interacting with fans at the NFL Draft in Nashville. When an Alabama fan asked him to say “Roll Tide!” things got real in a hurry.
As you can see below, Smith rips the fan, saying he won’t say “Roll Tide!” since Alabama lost to Clemson in blowout fashion in the title game:

Of course, he actually says “Roll Tide” twice while explaining that he won’t say it, so I suppose the fan can count that as a win.
That’s Smith for you, though — intense even during the commercial breaks.
