Watch: Steve Smith Responds To Idiotic Question In The Most Epic Way Possible
- Updated: January 13, 2014
Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers was once a top wide receiver in the NFL. While he certainly is a playmaker, his production is on the decline. Despite this, he fought through a knee injury and made key plays in the first half that gave the Panthers a fighting chance.
At the end of the day, the Panthers still lost.
After working extremely hard for the entire offseason and season, not to mention the previous years in which he did not make the playoffs, Steve Smith must have been pretty distraught after going one-and-done during this years NFL playoffs.
That did not stop one incredibly intelligent reporter from asking:
“Will you be cheering for the Seahawks against the Niners given how chippy this was today, or do you not really care at this point?”
I could describe Steve Smith’s reaction, but I’ll just let you watch what happens.
You really want me to thump you upside the head? 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.
I don’t blame Smith at all, in fact I applaud him. Reporters always ask dumb questions like these at the wrong time. Good job putting the reporter in his place without going to jail.
