Irony Sure Can Be Ironic Sometimes

Over the weekend, Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox made the bold move of suspending his gamebreaker Steve Smith for two games despite being on the coaching hot seat. Or at least I think he did. But check out this screen grab (click image to enlarge) from made by a Saints fan when the news broke:

Notice the Reebok ad over to the right? That is none other than superstar #89 showing off his jab. Could this all be an intricate viral marketing campaign by Reebok? I haven't seen any video- maybe the fight never happened at all? Maybe Reebok just threw a couple mil at Smith, Fox, and Ken Lucas to stage an altercation, so that fans will think that if they want to sucker punch someone to the ground, they should train with Reebok gear.

I just don't know what to believe anymore.
