Smith was asked after his Carolina Panthers lost to the San Francisco 49ers 23-10 on Sunday if he would be rooting for the Seattle Seahawks to beat San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game. I guess the reporter’s logic was that Smith would want someone else to beat the team that knocked him out of the playoffs? I really don’t know. Neither did Smith.
“You really want me to thump you upside the head?,” Smith said. “That was the dumbest question, and that’s the second dumbest question you’ve asked. I only cheer for one team. Actually, two teams. My team and my kid’s team. Other than that I can give a bleep.”
Thanks for putting it so bluntly, as always, Smith. Smith also deserves a lot of credit for playing well in the Panthers’ playoff game. He caught 4 passes for 74 yards and a touchdown despite having a bad knee that kept him at around 60 percent according to most reports.
As for that reporter, well, I guess he’s going to have to go “ice up, son” after that assault.
