Sapp is getting and heeding good legal advice

We’ve been checking from time to time over the past few days the Twitter page of Warren Sapp for any type of public statement regarding his weekend arrest for misdemeanor battery.

But Sapp, who has posted a total of 85,040 tweets, has yet to add anything since 6:11 a.m. ET on February 6.

It means that Sapp is getting good advice from his lawyer, and that he’s heeding it. 

Say nothing.

Anything that Sapp places on Twitter or elsewhere could be used against him in court.  And if he says anything at all, he’ll be inundated with requests from his 329,000-plus followers to address the allegations.  (There’s also a chance that he already is getting flooded with all sorts of Twitter messages, both supportive and critical.)

Sapp could, in theory, post a general, “I’ll keep tweeting but I’m not talking about the pending legal case”-style message, and then continue to tweet about other things.  But the safest and most prudent course of action for Sapp is to keep away from Twitter until this matter is resolved.

Of course, some would say that, in general, the safest and most prudent course of action for anyone is to keep away from Twitter, permanently.

  1. Sapp is so sexxy, imagine a woman turning down 400 LBS OF BACON, GOOD LORD SHE MUST BE CRAzY.

  2. or keep away from, you know, allegedly assaulting anyone and getting thrown in the pokey right before you second career was about to gain more credibility. i just can’t believe the NFL-N hired Eugene Robinson to cover the SB

  3. Class act.
    Still amazed at the NFL Network replacing him with Joey Porter.
    Is there no player, past or present, that they could hire who hasn’t got a record?

  4. Twitter is about the dumbest internet phenomenon to hit since LOL! Are people that board to follow a guy’s twitter page and he has to post that he is taking out the trash or mowing his lawn? It is just so dumb and invasive. Here hoping that Twitter, Facebook and myspace all find their way into extinction.
    About Sapp, I never thought he was good enough to get one analyst job let alone two! I thought pretty highly of inside the NFL until they put him on there and then my opinion of the show just plummeted. Don’t know if the allegations are true or not, but I would hope that he doesn’t keep the inside the NFL job. He just isn’t that kind of analyst like a Tom Jackson, Cris Carter or Cris Collinsworth who has the insight or articulation to get information across.

  5. good legal advice? wow, I guess I can be an attorney. Any moron that has any common sense knows that after you have been accused of a crime you don’t go around publicly talking about it or provoking it. Right, Gilbert?

  6. Good advice…stay away from Twitter permanently…UNLESS you’re really innocent, and a single tweet can prove your whereabouts, up-tos, and/or innocence.
    (I concede that’s unlikely in this case…but still. You have to believe that tweets, geo-tagging and the like will become ever-more-important pieces of evidence in court rooms)

    Or maybe someone who can form a sentence?

  8. Sapp’s just the lastest turd from the U….
    ….as in U have the right to remain silent, anything U say can be used against U in a court of law…..
