Giants P.R. director next in line to slam Sapp


Former running back Tiki Barber was one of the first people to come to the defense of his New York Giants teammate Michael Strahan following Warren Sapp’s comments that Simeon Rice belonged in the Hall of Fame over Strahan. Sapp didn’t back away from the comments on Tuesday either only reaffirming his beliefs that Rice was the better player.

Now another member of the Giants organization is speaking out against Sapp.

But first a little background. New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez tweeted Tuesday that his doctor gave him clearance to begin playing games again following hip surgery. It was a message Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman was none too happy about.

According to Andrew Marchand of, Cashman had a pointed response when informed of Rodriguez’s remarks.

“You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, [we will],” Cashman said. “Alex should just shut the f— up. That’s it. I’m going to call Alex now.”

Now with that out-of-the-way, back to football. Giants Senior Director of Communications Pat Hanlon took to Twitter Tuesday night to voice his opinion on Sapp.

It’s no secret that Sapp doesn’t have many fans in the Giants’ organization. Apparently you can now add their communications staff to the list.

    Pat is classic. This is standard issue for him, on Twitter AND on Giants shows with Papa and Banks.

    I am by no means a Giants fan but Warren is a total tool and couldn’t be more off.

    Best thing I have EVER read on PFT!

    Good show, sir! Good show indeed!

    Was that necessary ?

    For one, LT’s are supposed to be superior pass blockers than RT’s, but that doesn’t mean it makes Rice better than Strahan. In fact, he’s pretty much implying that he’s better than Reggie White and Deacon Jones because they played against the RT as well… Or like saying Miller and Smith are better pass rushers then Watt because they go against the outside guys vs the inside guys

    But the stats do show that Strahan struggled against LT’s than RT’s, while Rice succeeded against LT’s. To me tho, I think it comes down to the players comfortability. Some players just prefer playing on one side then the other, some prefer standing up over putting a hand on the dirt.

    Rice was fine player in a small market. Small market players do get overlooked for HOF voting. But Sapp in just mouthing for some TV time, this is his MO. Ok to stand up for his team. But don’t diss another great player to make a point. If Sapp spent as much energy on paying child support as he did whoofing………………….well you know the answer to that.

    Did you notice that no one defending Strahan has brought up the single season sack record in his defense. That’s because they all know it was a gift from Farve and should be eliminated from the record book!

    Quite possibly the best cheap shot by a PR man EVER!
    The best part is that you don’t need to be a Giants fan, or even a Strahan fan to enjoy Sapp getting owned by a PR guy. Haha!

    Strahan will get the HOF nod this year with the SB in NY. Wait until Sapp sees that.

    Way to go Pat.

    Sapp taked about breaking the sack record… Strahan did it.

    Come on Warren, you never had a chance.

    Anyone who has ever watched NFL Network understand s how big of a fool Sapp is.

  13. petedutcherjr says: Jun 26, 2013 9:04 AM

    Sapp is happy…he’s getting all kinds of exposure…just what he wanted.

    Warren Sapp is the man.

    Even without that, he’s had more sacks than anyone YOU’VE ever watched with your own two eyes.

    What’s your point?

    I am a football junkie. Can’t get enough of it. Pro football is my passion. Yet I simply can’t watch the NFL Network.
    Warren Sapp is one of the reasons. Sapp is a big tub of goo who is even more annoying than Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith and the cackling Carrie Champion.

    Please fire him NFL network!

  18. Brad Hobbs says: Jun 29, 2013 12:08 PM

    I absolutely agree. The NFL network actually did fire Warren Sapp after he outed Jeremy Shockey as the whistleblower in New Orleans who told about the bounty program going on with the Saints. A journalist should never out a source of information. However, Sapp is absolutely no journalist. NFL network should fire him. I’m sick of listening to him and I’m sick of looking at his ridiculous over expressive face and his constant laughing uncontrollably about his own jokes. Fire him NFL network! Pass it on.
