Is it contagious?

It’s not often you’ll find a totally random apostrophe on the Yahoo! front page, so imagine my surprise when I found one here:

fp cops apost

and then on the home page of Yahoo! Sports:

fans apost sports

I cannot imagine what made those writers add an apostrophe to those words. Is it an attempt to make them plural? Or to make them possessives? Anyone?
