Shaun Smith talks about Chad Johnson fight -- why?

PFT threw up a video of Shaun Smith (yea, Shaun Smith) detailing the "fight" at half-time between the Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers in 2005's Wild Card game. The video has since been removed -- I missed it too.

On Monday night, speaking at a recent meeting of the Central Maryland Browns Backers, former Bengals defensive tackle Shaun Smith acknowledged that Chad Johnson took a swing at Lewis -- and made contact.

Asked at the 5:20 mark of the clip about the incident that occurred in the team's locker room during the only playoff game of the Lewis era, Smith said of Johnson: "He swung on Marvin. . . . [Johnson] shattered the training room glass. . . . He swung on Marving [and] hit Marvin in the eye. . . . Then he tried to swing on wide receivers coach Hue Jackson, who's now in Baltimore."

I guess the question is, why would Smith make this up? Perhaps because he's a Browns player. Or maybe he's bitter about the Bengals because of something else. What advantage does Smith gain doing this? Admittedly, I missed the video -- have no idea it's intentions, purposes or what it was -- and perhaps the Bengals discussions was secondary. I don't know.
