Report: Sapp “likely” out at NFL Network

get Getty Images

When former NFL defensive tackle Warren Sapp recently declared bankruptcy, he listed his income at $45,000 per month from NFL Network on a contract that expires in August 2012.  Sapp said in the paperwork he’s not sure if the contract will be extended.

According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, it probably won’t be.

Bedard reports, citing two league sources, that Sapp’s employment is “likely over,” and that Sapp has not been on NFL Network in the two-plus weeks since he went on the air and outed former Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey as the player who blew the whistle on the Saints’ bounty system in 2011.

NFLN Senior Vice President of Programming and Production Mark Quenzel  previously said Sapp wouldn’t be “fired,” but if Bedard’s report is accurate that was just a matter of semantics.  Like when the Steelers didn’t “fire” offensive coordinator Bruce Arians after his contract expired.  Even though they didn’t offer him ongoing employment.  (Maybe NFLN will claim Sapp “retired,” too.)

We’ve separately heard, though hadn’t confirmed to the point that we felt comfortable reporting it, that Sapp is indeed done at NFL Network.  As one industry source explained it, opinions within the building were split on what to do with Sapp, and NFL Network chief Steve Bornstein made the decision to bench Sapp until his contract expires — and then to simply move on.

Though it was wrong for Sapp to “out” Shockey and label him a “snitch,” Sapp initially did so on his Twitter page.  As we understand it, he was then invited by NFL Network to come on the air and talk about what he had tweeted.

What did they expect him to say at that point, “No way — it’s a trap”?

Moreover, the fact that NFLN said in the wake of the fiasco that Sapp has been told he’s not a reporter but an analyst implied strongly that he hadn’t previously been told not to report things he has heard.  Indeed, the network happily embraced the fact that Sapp received a text message from former University of Miami teammate Ray Lewis during the season, indicating that Lewis would miss the first of four games with a foot injury.

But that’s the way the league usually operates.  No one is fired with fanfare, and the official separation comes after the dust settles.

If that’s what the league-owned network chooses to do with Sapp, that’s fine.  But the league-owned network shouldn’t have played word games with the public about it, and the league-owned network shouldn’t single Sapp out for something that arose from a much broader failure in TV production and sensitivity to potential legal problems.

    Any word yet on how much ‘hurt feelings’ money Shockey wants? He’s unemployed, and has to be getting pretty desperate for cash.

    Sapp was funny on NFL Gameday mornings just because he never held back his feelings. Oh well

    Pay your child support ya deadbeat…nothing worse than a “man” not supporting his kids….

  8. kingfish4242 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:28 AM

    When will these people learn you better be careful what you say in this era of social networking and instant media?

    Before someone chimes in and says Sapp should sue because his right to free speech was violated,it wasn’t.

    The only thing our right to free speech guarantees is the Government can’t arrest us for expressing our opinions. It doesn’t protect us from a private employer firing us for saying something stupid on Twitter or facebook.

  9. losntina69 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:30 AM

    What is it the same people running the nfl are the ones running the network. So he outed bitch Shocky and then they ask him to say it on air. They see all the backlash and now it was wrong for him to say anything???? What kind of sense that make. Good job job there nfl.

  10. billinva says: Apr 8, 2012 7:31 AM

    Bye Warren! Enjoy being a penniless jerk, no one will give the time of day to!

    GOOD! loud mouth!..so animated when he talked, eyes going all over the place..overrated player too

  13. keiselsbeard says: Apr 8, 2012 7:33 AM

    So, what you’re saying is the NFL is acting hypocritically in this instance? You’re kidding! They would NEVER do that (for those too slow to get it, that’s sarcasm). This is a huge mistake as Sapp is one of the only watchable “analysts” they have on that network.

  14. 7to10for6allday says: Apr 8, 2012 7:33 AM

    That stinks bc I enjoyed listening to him instead of loudmouth knucklehead Irvin or stiffboard Warner or company man Faulk. Troll siciliano on the weekly coverage is terrible too. Sapp gave that group swagger and character. #sappyoudaman

  15. bearsoxass says: Apr 8, 2012 7:33 AM

    Sapp is a big idiot !

  16. nagidac says: Apr 8, 2012 7:34 AM

    Glad that Sapp won’t be on TV anymore, but a gutless thing to do for the NFL network. They put him on the air to discuss his tweet about the snitch, then they get rid of him because he tweeted about the snitch.

  17. waltdawg says: Apr 8, 2012 7:34 AM

    Good…. Bad analysis chased by an arrogance that is unbearable. Could not have happened to a bigger loser.

  18. wvuandsteelers says: Apr 8, 2012 7:35 AM

    How did he screw his life up so bad? At least now I know why he took every appearance on a show offered him (BBQ Pitmasters, Dancing with the Stars).

  19. ascensionparish says: Apr 8, 2012 7:36 AM

    Sapp’s television future was in jeopardy long before his “Shockey/Snitch” story. Let’s face it, he (along with a bunch of his co-workers) just wasn’t that good.

  20. steelcityrapist says: Apr 8, 2012 7:38 AM

    What goes around comes around.

  21. kegowhisky says: Apr 8, 2012 7:38 AM

    Whichever way it goes, it’ll be hard to find many people staunchly on Sapp’s side. He’s managed to alienate most every football fan out there, and not with humility. The bankruptcy only compounds his problems. A tough lesson for Sapp, maybe too late in life for him to turn it around.

  22. peytonsneck18 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:38 AM

    Well there goes that 45K a month, now hoes he gonna pay his child support and take care of his kids????, oh wait……….nevermind

  23. amgdds says: Apr 8, 2012 7:39 AM

    Good riddance. Time for this arrogant know-it-all to sell some shoes and pay some child support.

  24. ravenfan820 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:40 AM

    GOOD!!!! I have not heard him make an insightful comment…..

  25. mempusa says: Apr 8, 2012 7:40 AM

    You’re getting pretty bold with the NFL, Florio. Your comments are starting to sound like a scorned woman.

    UM bum..

  27. ray1950 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:40 AM

    Not once in this column did you point out that Roger Goodell has stated that Shockey was not the “snitch”, thereby continuing the myth.

  28. kegpack says: Apr 8, 2012 7:41 AM

    This would make for a great episode on Daniel Tosh’s “Ha Ha Now You’re Poor Time”

  29. bigdog3838 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:44 AM

    They should fire him for being an idiot and one of the worst analysts on that network and that’s saying something when Michael Irvin, Jamie Dukes and Marshall Faulk are on the same network. Oh and Neon Deion!

  30. purplepridehasadownside says: Apr 8, 2012 7:44 AM

    45k a month, and bankrupt….as Bugs Bunny would say ‘What a maroon’

  31. supergruby says: Apr 8, 2012 7:44 AM

    Right or wrong? I don’t care. Don’t let the door hit ya in the a** on the way out.

  32. dolphins4 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:45 AM

    What a Sapp.

  33. JMB says: Apr 8, 2012 7:51 AM

    Finally! That fool should’ve never been hired to begin with.

  34. melikefootball says: Apr 8, 2012 7:52 AM

    There was times when his lips were to flappy. He had no problem making jokes toward players that had been fined heavly or suspended. The joke may be on him now, lets see how much he laughs.

  35. bedabear says: Apr 8, 2012 7:54 AM

    One down, three more to go. Eisen, Deion, and Irvin. Then NFLN will be watchable. But at least it looks like Sapp is gone and that’s a step in the right direction.

  36. paulsmith107 says: Apr 8, 2012 7:56 AM

    Good riddance you don’t deserve a job making 45000 dollars a month when you are a dead beat dad. I can’t wait to see about you and your total collapse on an espn 30 for 30 one day fatso

  37. beeronthefridge says: Apr 8, 2012 7:58 AM

    AWRIGHTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. phinfan says: Apr 8, 2012 7:59 AM

    Glad hes gone. And now hes bankrupt. The one thing I hated about him is how he shouts anything with no real proof

  39. ryanclark25 says: Apr 8, 2012 8:02 AM

    I’ll be the first to say I don’t like him and could not care less about getting fired but lay off the man on this child support thing. How much is this “child support”? The fee was determined probably when he was in his good times and these women likely settled for some gold digging amount far exceeding sufficient child benefit. That said, as well as being a tool Sapp clearly can’t handle his finances either so ya don’t let the door hit you on the way out as someone else said.

  40. tatum064 says: Apr 8, 2012 8:02 AM

    Couldnt have happened to a bigger a-hole.

    he dissed the Raiders for the last time,

    Thanks,

    Emmitt Smith should be Sapp’s replacement.

  42. mrv072 says: Apr 8, 2012 8:03 AM

    Sapp got what he deserved. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!!!

  43. greenbloodking says: Apr 8, 2012 8:10 AM

    Sapp does not deserve to get fired. He deserves to be made to go on air and publicly say that he was wrong and apologize IF THAT IS THE CASE. All the ‘he’s not a reporter’ crap an benching him is just the NFLN covering their own ass for the extreme screw up of inviting their own analyst on air to say something controversial. If they have the balls to put him on air and say it, then they should have the balls to defend their choice of programming in the face of adversity instead of scapegoating Warren Sapp. And furthermore, if Sapp is only an analyst and not a reporter, then everyone else on that network is the same damn thing and none of them have any business ‘Reporting’ on anything according to that line of logic. And I’m not condoning what Sapp did, but I guarantee you this backlash would not happen to Rich Eisen.

    ============

    I dont think it matters, since they were probably looking for a reason to get rid of him. He alienated a lot of former players, and they likely played a part in him getting run out of there.

  47. PriorKnowledge says: Apr 8, 2012 8:14 AM

    I have mixed feelings about this: On one hand, I don’t think he should be fired for this one transgression, especially since NFLN asked him about the tweet. On the other hand, as an analyst he sucks and his opinions lack any credibility.

    ====================

    Its the NFL screwing someone who he thought would have his back after a controversial statement, and Shockey was supposedly not the snitch, but was identified as such by Sapp. This making NFL Network a faulty source for the biggest story in the league in a decade (never mind SpyGate). Its unfortunate, but in the future, guys, if you think you have a scoop, always fact check them – there have been guys who have been fired for less, but misinfo is a no-no, especially nowadays.

  49. Punk says: Apr 8, 2012 8:19 AM

    Sapp shouldn’t be fired because of the Shockey issue. Sapp should be fired because he isn’t very good at his job.

    He interrupts his peers, he rambles, and he’s difficult to understand.

    The network is better off without him on the air.

  50. jayhawk6 says: Apr 8, 2012 8:20 AM

    Sapp apparently owes more than $6M to creditors and for child support.

    This is hardly the most embarrassing publicity for retired players, but maybe Roger Goodell and the NFL should devise and require some kind of Wonderlic test for common sense when it comes to spending money.

  51. browns627 says: Apr 8, 2012 8:20 AM

    making 45 g’s a month and he cant survive???

  52. jason49er says: Apr 8, 2012 8:20 AM

    I have no sympathy for a moron who played 13 years in the NFL and has been paid to go on numerous TV shows and ends up blowing it all.

    Stop making it rain and buying 100 bentleys and 4839462938 pairs of Jordans and start planning for your future like a normal person does. It’s called a budget.

    Now that I said that, I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to ask him about his tweet on the show and then get mad at him when he talks about it on the show. Sapp always had charisma but half the time it didn’t seem like he knew what he was talking about. Life will go on.

  53. myopinionmattersandyoursblows says: Apr 8, 2012 8:22 AM

    Unfortunantly, we will never learn what happened to the producer who told Sapp to go on air w/ his belief that Shockey was the whistleblower. That genius should be terminated as well.
    However, I dunno why the person who dropped dime on the Saints would be labled a “snitch”! The Saints were warned, more than once, to knock the Bounty bullsh*t off and they did not comply. Informing the NFL of their continued misdeeds would not make a person a snitch… It makes a whistleblower!
    After hearing the Greg Williams audio this past week, it is a good thing that this callous man, w/ no regard for sportsmanship, is out of the NFL, hopefully, forever!

  54. xmgmx says: Apr 8, 2012 8:22 AM

    This dude should have never been in a booth to begin with. Get rid of him, Irvin, and Gruden, and the NFL on television becomes much more enjoyable and credible.

  55. musicman495 says: Apr 8, 2012 8:24 AM

    If that’s what the league chooses to do with the Saints, that’s fine. But the league shouldn’t have played games with the public about it, and the league shouldn’t single the Saints out for something that arose from a much broader failure in league oversight and enforcement and sensitivity to potential legal problems.

  56. fins4life says: Apr 8, 2012 8:25 AM

    Sapp shouldn’t be fired. NFLN needs people like him, Deion and Irvin to keep it interesting. Honestly, I’ll take Sapp over someone as monotonous as John Madden any day! Some of you may say, NFLN isn’t Def Comedy Jam…but it still needs comic relief which people like Sapp, Deion and Irvin bring to the table.

  57. xmgmx says: Apr 8, 2012 8:27 AM

    bigdog3838…. thanks for the reminder!

    Add Jamie Dukes and Dion to the list.
    When ANY of these five are on my screen, I turn the channel!

    Very good points and I can add one more. In good times these athletes have a entourage that also sucks cash. These types of “friends” disappear when times get tough.

    My wife and I have a financial planner. We are not rich by any stretch,but I’ll never forget what he once told me. He said he had clients that made 40 grand a year in better financial position than clients making 400 grand per year. It’s not how much you make as much as it is how much you spend.

    The biggest problem in my opinion is these athletes believe the big money they are making in their 20′s will continue for the rest of their lives.

    I also remember what Colin Cowherd said on his radio show once. He said Bobby Carpenter drives a 2002 Dodge Truck to work. Chad Johnson just spent 600 grand on a custom built semi cab. Which athlete do you believe will be filing bankruptcy 5 years after they retire?

    The whole BountyGate itself has been fubar for all involved, everyone from Goodell himself, the NFLN, Sapp, Shockey, the Saints, the NFLPA, Brees, etc.

    And there’s still more from the CapGate to explode an egg on the face of Goodell, the NFLPA, etc.

    This is what happens when Goodell plays politician-dictator.

  68. santolonius says: Apr 8, 2012 8:44 AM

    maybe sapp is a really good guy, but i don’t understand all the excuses for him. he shot his mouth off on twitter and on air about something that is highly sensitive and possible law suit worthy – which is the one thing that an on air commentator has to have under his/her control (even when they simultaneously give the appearance that they are an uncensored livewire.) the suggestion of giving him a pass because the nfln purposely put him on tv to talk about his tweet assumes the person who made that call to put him on isn’t also on thin-ice at the network, and i bet that person is. – all that said, i hope sapp wises up and bounces back. i like him.

    The hole Sapp dug will be filled very quickly by the long line of retired players waiting to step up and do the job.

  71. lostsok says: Apr 8, 2012 8:46 AM

    Sapp was the worst thing about NFLN. The blessing in this is the lesson they hopefully earned. They need intelligence analysis and as unbiased reporting as an affiliated network can be (and, to their credit, they’re done admirably in most respects).

    They do NOT need to be the TMZ of the sports world.

    After all…that’s what THIS blog is for!

    Regardless of the Shockey incident, Sapp should be fired. He’s terrible at his job and adds absolutely nothing to the broadcast.

    I agree, $15,000 a month in child support and $45,000 a month in alimony, is a bit much, and when you don’t pay it people call you a dead beat dad.

    I don’t like the guy, never have but I can’t really say he’s a dead beat because he fell behind trying to pay out $60,000 every month.

  76. kingpel says: Apr 8, 2012 8:58 AM

    sapp has always been a loud mouth bum. was always a good sound bite when he was relevent and played in the nfl, but that always does not translate into the studio chair. speaking before you think when you PLAY in the nfl gets you a sportscenter clip, speaking before you think in the STUDIO gets you fired.
    Maybe big warren should have taken some financial classes at “the U” and he would not be broke as a joke. good riddens loud mouth!

    There is a line of replacements waiting – with more integrity and charactar. After all NFLN is an extension of the NFL, and his actions did not “represent”.

  81. sledgehorn says: Apr 8, 2012 9:05 AM

    WHAT?
    Rich Eisen is the man.
    He seriously makes the show.
    Deion and Irvin, totally agree.
    Eisen, no way.

    about time. i’ve never liked sapp, as a player or on NFLN.

    Dude, … WHAT? Uh, speechless…

    Do you understand what this man did was criminally negligent? And he did it on the air? He outed a whistleblower on national cable TV! And he wasn’t even right!

    His job isn’t the last thing he’s going to lose because of this… and when it gets exposed where he’s hiding his assets, he’s going to have some real explaining to do.

    Unless I missed a bit of news, your article contains a huge error here. Sapp INCORRECTLY outted shockey as a snitch. The nfl has specifically said he’s not so you need to fix it or people who don’t know the whole story are going to think he is.

  89. jluns275 says: Apr 8, 2012 9:21 AM

    Attention “greenbloodking”: Uh…..yeah, of course this would never happen to Rich Eisen. He’s not dumb enough or ghetto enough to do what Sapp did. Oh also, Eisen is not deadbeat dad enough. Even if NFL Network was admittedly negligent in their actions regarding this whole mess, that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t take the opportunity to rectify their obvious buyer’s remorse from employing Sapp in the first place. Doesn’t the network already have enough egg on it’s face for paying someone on Sapp’s level to muddy the brand & league? I must say Sapp’s behavior is rather in keeping with the usual from the “U” alumni.

  90. qmizzle says: Apr 8, 2012 9:23 AM

    Wow the Sapp hate is unbearable.. his opinions are unfiltered, so you call him a loud mouth. But then I read most of what everyone posts and you all seem too be a bunch of loudmouths your damn selves..

  91. faithful209er says: Apr 8, 2012 9:28 AM

    I never could stand the guy.

    Outing Shockey was reprehensible.

    And this week I heard Greg Papa (Raiders play-by-play) tell a story about when Sapp joined the Raiders, he disrespected Jim Plunkett in front of Al Davis and other Raiders. I would assume that’s why he didn’t last long in OAK. Papa wouldn’t say what Sapp said, but it speaks volumes. A classless punk disrespecting a team’s legends.

    NOW… I can’t stand Jeremy Shockey or Greg Papa, and my screen name tells you that I am no Raiders fan in general… But out of respect for the game of football and all that it stands for,
    EFF WARREN SAPP!

    you nailed it!

    Florio (again) sounds like a broad, loves telling the NFL what it “should” do….

    Damn man. Karma came around pretty quick on this one…

  95. bbk1000 says: Apr 8, 2012 9:39 AM

    Sapp absolutely stinks, but the NFL knew exactly what they were getting when they hired him, his antics with his mouth have been going on forever.

    I wish he was in the first year contract of a long term deal, so they would have to fire him instead of him just going away.

    Hey NFL, I hear Tiki Barber is available….

  96. briang123 says: Apr 8, 2012 9:42 AM

    If he were white, they would have chuckled, said “boys will be boys,” and extended his contract 3 years this week to show their support. They never get rid of the white guys, but the black guys are like a revolving door, fired for the slightest perceived infractions.

  97. 69firebird says: Apr 8, 2012 9:43 AM

    Florio will demand to se sapps contract to see if he is able to tweet news and information

  98. iggles20 says: Apr 8, 2012 9:45 AM

    If Sapp mentioned it on his personal twitter page, and then the NFLN invited him to talk about it openly on air…. then why fire him for something they knew he was going to say?

    Unless… they wanted him gone for some other reason and used this opportunity to give him enough rope to hang himself so that they wouldn’t have to be the proverbial “bad guys”.

    That’s kinda foul.

  99. nomoreseasontix says: Apr 8, 2012 9:46 AM

    Actually would prefer to cycle all former players for new and fresh dribble. It is better than Michael Irvin, and Sapp. Sanders is good! Please no Jerry Rice or Kellen Winslow. In this country you have the freedom to say what you want and that is awesome…. Now Sapp will have his reality show QBKILLA will entertain for food!

  101. sdisme says: Apr 8, 2012 9:47 AM

    More Andrew Siciliano, Kara Henderson & Dr. Phil.

    More game-shows and silly sketches.

    Less football. Pretty soon NFLN will be ESPN 4

  102. Patriot42 says: Apr 8, 2012 9:47 AM

    Most of these type of athletes see how many children they can father and not support as if there are a score being kept somewhere.

  103. cliffordc05 says: Apr 8, 2012 9:47 AM

    There is an assumption in this article that Sapp would have had his employment extended if he had not shot off his mouth about Shockey. If you have ever listened to Sapp provide what passes for analysis on the NFLN you would know that there is a good reason he is not being renewed. The NFLN will remain a second class operation so long as it hires its analysts based on their notoriety rather than their ability to provide insight into a game. Sapp is not the worst but he is close to Michael Irvin territory.

  104. artiesliver says: Apr 8, 2012 9:50 AM

    I don’t think he should be back because he stinks. Also though what the NFL did was kind of a wuss move but I don’t feel sorry for Sapp. Sapp has always treated non-celebs like crap. He deserves no sympathy.

  105. torturedraiderfan says: Apr 8, 2012 9:53 AM

    Sapp is a dumb, fat, arrogant a-hole. He doesn’t below on TV. Never did, never will. I guess Emmitt Smith would say: “he got blowed up”.

  106. leovsmith says: Apr 8, 2012 9:59 AM

    App’s Twitter name alone made me feel he was a bad image the league and network. “Killa” sounds like an exSaints coach Williams. Fire him, even if his leak was right, which Goodell says it was not, he should have been fired.

  107. dryzzt23 says: Apr 8, 2012 10:00 AM

    This reeks of what ESPN did to Rush Limbaugh

    ESPN KNEW that Rush makes some inflammatory remarks that would anger everyone on the supposedly politically correct left, yet they hired him and put him on the air anyway.

    Then when he does make a remark that “offends” people, then they vilify him for it.

    NFLN did the same thing with Sapp.

    If a company hired a known embezzler, then the person steals money from the company, who is more to blame, the perp, or the company?

    In the case of Rush Limbaugh vs ESPN and the Left:
    ESPN is to blame; Rush is innocent

    In the case of Sapp vs NFLN;
    NFLN is to blame; Sapp is innocent

  108. sunlion333 says: Apr 8, 2012 10:06 AM

    One of the biggest A-holes I have ever met. His on air personality is just that. In person, he is one of the most ungracious malcontents to walk the planet. His image of his self is so dillusional, he must think he walks on water. Good riddance!

  109. jagwar73 says: Apr 8, 2012 10:06 AM

    I enjoy the majority of the former players turned analyst, but Sapp is difficult to watch sometimes. He acts like a know it all. He reminds me of Shaq on TNT. I used to love their halftime show. What a failed experiment that has been. I don’t know how long that contract is, but I hope he’s the next one out.

  110. GG Eden says: Apr 8, 2012 10:09 AM

  126. bucforever says: Apr 8, 2012 11:16 AM

    I really have mixed feelings about Warren Sapp. In the Tampa Bay area he is known as a real a-hole. But not many will talk bad about his talent on the field . He is respected as a player but not as a person! He was the heart of this defense for many years. It might be possible for some team college or pro to use him in a coaching position. Hey , he will need to work when the food stamps run out!
    Or maybe he has a “tell all” book in the works!

  127. 84sgl says: Apr 8, 2012 11:21 AM

    That NFL roundtable show will finally be good!! Never understood why Warren was on every week and Sterling Sharpe and Joe Theisman, guys to actually cover the game with their playbook show, never got on . Don’t you want analyst on a roundtable discussion that can use objective evidence to support their arguments? All sap would do is yell over people (especially Mooch who is the best!) and no one could get an opinion in. Sap was master at starting rumors or just bashing teams he just doesn’t like. What makes it worse is Warren never even makes logical sense.. I don’t care if these guys were stars or not. I want SMART people to cover the game.

    The NFL Network as a whole is getting pretty hard to watch. Just watching the football highlights on sunday night, is like watching an episode of Monty Python! I didn’t know there was a comedic element to football. Every highlight is infused with laughs, giggles and jokes! The NFL Network is the biggest joke!

    This is similar to Adam Schefter’s situation.

    He had a dispute with NFL Network (although contract-related) and he was on paid leave until he joined ESPN.

    Sapp is not that worthy of sympathy to the point where I can call his situation “sad”.

  133. burgandyandgoldfan says: Apr 8, 2012 11:30 AM

  135. 49ers1970 says: Apr 8, 2012 11:38 AM

    How do these players get broke. Its so hard to understand. Sapp signed at least 2 big contracts in his carrer. Make 45K a month and still broke?

    Not sure why players feel they have to have 2 and 3 homes and 3 or 4 cars at one time. They never heard of putting the big signing bonus in the bank and just living off of interst?

    Going broke because of child support is not good. Not sure why players have not learned that lesson.

  136. jrodz19 says: Apr 8, 2012 11:40 AM

  137. beergeekjoey says: Apr 8, 2012 11:41 AM

    sorry that he can’t seem to cope with that limited income stream, but the main reason I never watch NFL Network game coverage, pregame, or halftime commentary is that he is so annoying and often completely off base. too bad for his family – they shouldn’t have to suffer, but he needed to go. hope they replace him with someone better.

  138. toolnutz says: Apr 8, 2012 11:48 AM

    He took huge pay from an old man(AD) without performing at maximum effort. Then trash talking the team that was generous to him. I have no sympathy for him.

  139. greenbloodking says: Apr 8, 2012 11:52 AM

    @Tatumo64 U are exactly right… That’s why u can’t condone people flying off at the mouth before checking properly. But if he was invited to speak by the network then they should take just as much of the blame.

    @dryzzt23 you are the only one who mentioned race. I’m talking about the network having Rich Eisens back. He’s their golden boy.

    @faithful209er He was asked by the network to come on and share his info. If you think the network was unaware of what Sapp was going to say then you are just as foolish as Sapp was.

    @jluns275 Personal issues don’t have anything to do with the league making a choice to put his info on air and then outing him for the same exact thing they should have done.

  140. curtainclosed says: Apr 8, 2012 11:56 AM

  142. steviep23 says: Apr 8, 2012 12:01 PM

    Pro athletes pay ridiculous amounts in child support. Once sapp retired he should’ve tried and lowered it. Karma is a bitch, though. Don’t go having kids if you’re not gonna be there for them.

  143. 1phd says: Apr 8, 2012 12:02 PM

    Wait, your employer asks you to come on the air and explain your tweet, you do and then you get fired for it? I’m not a big fan of Sapp but I hope he files a big fat lawsuit against the morons at NFL Network that you mention in your piece. A few of them should not have their contracts renewed as well. Go after them Warren!

  144. pigskin28 says: Apr 8, 2012 12:05 PM

    Every single one of these guys were unpolished when hired. Only Irvin had vast previous experience.

    Sapp made great points at times but his delivery left alot to be desired. He tried to hard to be a fast speaking energetic guy before he learned to be clear in thought and speech. That hurt him on air.

    To all those applauding the man losing his job, you all are just despicable low lifes.

    There are millions of folks who file banruptcy each year, many of them your neighbors. In most instances it’s simply pritextion against deptors. There are businesses with entire accounting departments who file bankruptcy.

    Lastly, this is definitely not a racial issue. However when you have commenters calling the man boy and folks asking for allthe Black analyst heads on a platter? Then you scratch your head.
    No one has mentioned Warner, but call for Marshall? Marshall puts most ESPN analyst to shame. Sapp is no worse than Ditka.

  156. pedrovillegas21 says: Apr 8, 2012 1:04 PM

    Let’s look at the big picture, he’s not being fired for the twitter comment about Shockey ( they can’t ask him to talk about it and then fire him for it ) he was arrested right before the Super Bowl when he was about to do work for the NFL, I’m sure that has something to do with it

I mean yes he is ignorant and a loud mouth, but not far behind Brett Favre he might have been the funnest to watch play the game! Criticize his TV Career but not his NFL Career because few people can Stand Close to as tall as Sapp!

  159. fdugrad says: Apr 8, 2012 1:44 PM

    The Seattle Times reported today he owes 6.7 MILLION to creditors and back child support and alimony. It further reports part of his assets being over 240 pairs of Jordan athletic shoes worth $6,500 ( no excess tastes there ) ! He makes ( made ) $45,000 per MONTH and is that much in the hole?! Again, another former “student athlete” and pro star living the life of the entitled and spoiled crashing head-long into the reality of dealing with real-world consequences. It appears as though no matter how many times the same pattern occurs, many pro players do not go to school on the mistakes of their predecessors. How many of current pros in all walks of sport are traveling the exact trail? Do they not have access to reputable, honest advisors, or are they simply not willing to listen. Do they have ANY plan/blueprint for life after a VERY short career? On what job skills does Mr S. turn to at this point?

  160. devrick says: Apr 8, 2012 1:50 PM

    I have no opinion on Sapp and his situation, really. But if NFL Network is going to let him go, they should just go ahead and do it so he’ll have a better shot at getting picked up somewhere else. I understand why they wouldn’t want to do that under normal circumstances, but if the Shockey situation is the main reason he’s not going to be retained, they’d get better PR mileage out of just dealing with it.

    Funny how quick some people are to make something into a race issue. It doesn’t even matter to me that NFLN invited Sapp to speak further on his possible outing of a whistleblower on Twitter. He still had a choice. He still did the wrong thing. It’s not as if this is the first time he’s exhibited poor behavior publicly.
    greenbloodking:
    “Personal issues” can absolutely be considered cause for dismissal or discipline at the workplace: it’s called a “morals clause”. I’ve had one in my contract with my employers for years & I’ve never seemed to have any trouble-because I’ve chosen not to.

  168. helloworldlmao says: Apr 8, 2012 3:11 PM

    i actually enjoyed sapp on the NFL network. with these athletes losing millions and these politicians repeating history, you’d think we ll learn from the previous people before us that made the mistakes. dont clown him because he didn’t handle his money right because we all have issues that many people before us had as an example (failed marriages, alcoholism, becoming a master of nothing, and so on). get your self confidence somewhere else rather than ragging on people because you still have to live with yourselves.

  169. robf2010 says: Apr 8, 2012 3:13 PM

    And the whole point is, the NFL told the Saints 3 years ago to stop and they didn’t care that it was wrong. They wanted under the rug. They continues and lied about. No recourse.

    Besides, there are not enough African American NFL analysts??

    I loathe Sapp but its very disingenious for the NFLN to have him talk about his tweet on air and then fire him for it. Talk about a setup.

    If anything not only Sapp but the producer who put him on the air to do so should also be fired.

    The amount of negative comments that constitute the majority of, not just this, but most articles posted on this website is discouraging. Mike Florio feeds into it consistently, but it’s amazing to see how much hate many have in them.

    Are your lives really so bad?

    Good. After Shannon Sharpe, Sapp is the worst. Hopefully Porter will ride with him off into the sunset.

    Florio twisting the facts again …

    Faulty logic about being told he is not a reported (he may have been told years again .. you don’t know so don’t imply that you do

    Implying Sapp as the victim .. his contract is thru Aug 2012 and he’ll get paid thru then . .he is owed nothing else

    Implying that we deserve more (word games with the public) from the “league-owned” NFL Network .. how winey and self-entitled are you .. NFL fans don’t have hurt feelings about what networks say about their talent.

    FYI . .ya gonna delete this one too?

    I was wondering when, at the time he was in debt for “only” two or three MILLION what his financial thought process was exactly? This year I owe the IRS about one thousand dollars. I gradually over the past year put two thousand in a savings account because I realized that I would need to pay. Is it impossible for millionaire pro athletes to do something along these lines with their earnings? What could he have possibly been thinking as his debt climbed higher and higher into the MILLIONS?! I wonder what the daily, weekly, monthly, etc. interest is on several million dollars?

    Remember people there are three sides to every story…….
    The truth usually lies somewhere in the middle

    Once Pilar sues Deion and makes him file for bankruptcy he can live in same car with Sapp!

    Dear NFL Network,
    I have an idea. Why not get rid of him and hire me. It will be a new concept. Your average Joe armchair OB , Me and I’m willing to do it for half of what you paid Sappy. Please let me know if and when I am to start.

    He’s declaring bankruptcy to avoid a Jeremy Shockey settlement.

  186. raiderfan509 says: Apr 10, 2012 10:14 PM

    $45,000 a month and he can’t pay his bills? He will never be remembered as a Raider. Only as a lame dead beat!

    Jeremy Shockey is ah Big Baby…..always crying about something….I hope nobody picks his selfish a@* up….

    Now can we get rid of Jaime Dukes while were at it?

    TALK TOUGH SAPP?!?! PUT A JERSEY ON! PUT A JERSEY ON!

    I love NFLN’s “Good Morning” commercial but I haven’t seen it in a while — maybe this explains why.
