If there was ever any chance that Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp would be returning to a TV screen or any media company at any point in the near or distant future, there probably isn’t now.

Sapp, fired by NFL Network after being accused of soliciting prostitution and then assaulting said prostitutes, is now accused of assaulting his long-time girlfriend (who apparently remained his girlfriend despite Sapp’s indiscretion with a pair of prostitutes).  According to TMZ, Sapp has been charged with three counts of domestic violence following an April 28 incident at at Las Vegas resort.

Per TMZ, the police report alleges that Sapp: (1) throwing a margarita in her face”; (2) allegedly grabbing her “by the arm or purse and violently pulled on her . . . nearly taking her down to the ground”; (3) “biting her middle finger”; (4) throwing a belt at her; and (5) stepping on her face while wearing a pair of sandals.

She allegedly emerged from the incident with multiple injuries, including a checkerboard imprint on her temple, apparently from the sole of Sapp’s sandal.

He’s due in court on July 23, and he faces up to 18 months in prison. He likely now has been exiled from any type of high-profile media employment for a lot longer than that — possibly for the rest of his life.

  1. Sapp was horrible as a studio analyst anyway. His bug eye shoulder shrugging antics wore thin very fast. Plus, that dopey piano teeth smile he fakes made him look even dumber than he was.

    It says volumes about the people who hire these clown former players that it takes assaults on women for them to realize their mistakes.

    Good riddance Sapp. Go visit Darren Sharper. He’ll be in the cell next to yours.

  2. He was a dirty player, it doesn’t surprise me that he’s still a scumbag off the field as well.

  3. There’s no other way to put this; the man is a damn clown.

    And this is coming from a long time Bucs fan who remembers what it was like watching Sapp on the field, where he was the greatest DT in the game during his prime. But you know what? Even when he was stepping on players on the field, he was still a clown off of it, being rude to just about everyone he’s come into contact with away from the game of football.

  4. Where are all his defenders who backed him over trying to fight the Packers coach, who was mad, after you know–this guys actions determine him to be a king size POS. Why he ever got a job at the network is a serious mystery. Because he was a jolly fat guy? Because, thats the only thing I ever thought he had going for him. His football opinions were an embarrassment.

  5. Just another violent misogynist to come out of the league. But unfortunately they won’t take away Sapp’s HOF bust any more than they will to O.J. Simpson.

  6. if he could still play Jerry would be telling us how the Cowboys believe in second chances and they have a support system in place that help him get rehabilitated…once the pubic scoffed he would have his daughter do a presser…Warren Sapp=Greg Hardy after NFL career is over….

  7. This guy had the nerve to talk about Michael Strahan for the majority of his career.
    In addition, always trashed my Giants at any opportunity – including picking them to lose every postseason game in 2007 and 2011, which makes him a complete moron.

    Warren – you are a complete joke of a human being.

  8. I fondly remember in the Orange Bowl when Nebraska wore down Miami and Sapp was bending over with his hands on his knees sucking wind. He later claimed he wasn’t tired, just resting. I think he’s still sucking wind. So long, Sapp and good riddance.

  9. “You have to eff up pretty bad to get charged in Vegas. Just ask Floyd Mayweather.”
    _____________________________

    Floyd ain’t declared bankruptcy, and his fights still generate bbbbbillions.

    Not saying it’s right, but it sure seems to be what is.

  10. Terrible person always rude and disrespectful to Bucs fans, including kids and handicapped

  11. Right now, Sapp’s name hangs in Raymond James Stadium in a position of great honor. Then came prostitution/assault one, fired from NFL netework, already after a bankruptcy, who knows how many unsupported kids that you and I probably end up paying for, now this. If he is convicted, we need to take his sorry name down. He has no right to be there with LeeRoy Selman, Jimmie Giles, John McKay, Paul Gruber, Derrick Brooks, and soon to be Mike Alstott and Doug Williams. Fine, leave him in the NFL Hall of Fame if you must, because at least can’t smell his sorry character in Tampa from Canton, OH. The only place his name belongs in Raymond James is on a urinal cake.

    Another Husker fan who lives in the past and likes to gloss over his own program’s moral shortcomings. Warren Sapp would’ve fit right in to Tom Osborne’s program. Christian Peter and played in the same era and had just as disturbing of a pattern of misogyny and was never punished in any way. Lawrence Phillips was barely punished as well and look how he turned out. Besides, enjoy your memories of when Nebraska was relevant.

  13. Good thing he’s been drinking Bud Light lately, else it could have been much worse.

  14. for all then talk of the iron fist and GODell’s oversite of the players in this league, doesn’t the buck also stop with Goodell about the behavior of NFL Network on air personalities as well? He IS the commissioner of the “NFL”, after all.

    Another Failing of Gooofdell

  15. Have him give ‘ol Charley Sheen a call.
    he will fix him up, OR give him the number for a good drug dealer!
    Sapp will probably wash out, then blame it on being Black and sensitivity stuff,
    who knows…….he is an idiot..

  16. If Sapp was a retired Pats player, we’d be hearing:

    (1) A chemical analysis of the drink shows it had NO tequila, therefore it was not a margarita. Clearly someone is trying to frame him.

    (2) Ray Rice punched his fiance. Adrian Peterson spanked his kid. Everyone is violent towards loved ones. Why pick on Sapp?

    (3) She had BBQ sauce on her finger. Can you blame a man for not wanting it to go to waste?

    (4) Roger Goodell sucks.

    (5) But she ended up with no bruises. No harm, no foul.

  17. Perfect Packer material. They like taking criminals into their organization. How’s Jolley doing?

  18. Sooooo I guess that brady guy might not actually symbolize everything that’s wrong with the NFL right now.

  19. Regardless of his off-the-field issues, Sapp should not have gone into the HOF in 2013. There were, and still are, greater men that played the game.

    Not that it would have changed his behavior, but he should still be waiting for that gold jacket. Yes… I know his stats and I watched him play. I also watched players like Jim Marshall, Ken Stabler, Steve McMichael, and Charles Haley…to name a few.

  20. There’s only one way to describe Warren Sapp: a bad person. I knew it ever since he would bad mouth my Raiders every chance he got. AFTER stealing a check from us for a couple of years. Now he is completely broke and has publicly shamed HIMSELF. Ahhhh Karma!

  21. I remember feeling enraged when he criticized Michael Strahan’s selection to the Hall of Fame. I used to watch you on every play and you took at least 65% of them off Sapp!! Go away!!

    I’ll defend Sapp for the hit on Clifton. It was 2002, before the emphasis on player safety in the NFL. It was between the lines and between the whistles. No penalty, no suspension, fair game in the old NFL.
    I can never understand how he Derrick Brooks, a class A guy remains so close to this guy.
    It shouldnt surprise us, the players with personalities that make them dominant on the field cant switch it off in the real world.

  23. When did we first start giving these really bad dudes makeovers to being big teddy bears who had always just been misunderstood? Sapp was never a good guy but by his retirement he had somehow been reformed and just stepped into a studio job like he was some clever, likable guy everybody should respect. He was never any of those things. A photo shoot or two and a bunch of softball questions in an ESPN interview do not change who these guys are.

  24. Come on, guys, clearly he was of the belief that the woman in question had taken that Super Bowl ring he “lost” when he filed bankruptcy. What a piece of trash. Always has been, always will be.

  25. Thank god hes not on tv anymore. Hated the way he would talk over people. Hes too loud and annoying. Now if they can just get rid of micheal irving I’d be just fine. 🙂

  26. ..in a league where the commis is determined to do things his way…..have the Hall of Fame TAKE AWAY his induction. He is so undeserving of being with those legends. I think most fans would applaude the move.

  27. He was a player worthy of first ballot HOF. Why the NFL picks and chooses who’s off field behaviour is and is not acceptable is bizarre. If my and warren get in no problem, why the hell did Haley have to wait. He has some weird rumors against him but so what apparently.

  28. I wish people like him could have their HOF status revoked…he and OJ Simpson would be right in line for revocation. However, it won’t happen, but we need to continue on the story, that despite him being in Canton, he was a terrible human being. What a jerk.

  29. He may never get another media job but if he was a still a player he’d be back in the field soon. Look at Suggs history of domestic violence accusations and he is still a well respected player in the league.

  30. I always saw Sapp as a goofy moron. In the past few months, he has simply proven to me that I was right about him all along. Good riddance dirt ball!

  31. Most of the stuff is serious if true, but charge with “throwing a drink in her face” ? Wow I’ve had someone do that to me and would never think of having them arrested. Removed from the club for being too drunk yeah, but considered an actual crime ?

  32. “Put him in the HOF, right along side Ray Lewis is what they’ll do”

    “If there was ever any chance that Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp would be returning to a TV screen…”

    He is already there,and proud of it.

  33. His girl friend stands by him when he hired two hookers to pleasure him while being unfaithful to her.she will no doubt now continue to stand by him through his legal troubles in this case.love can sometimes make a women stand by her man when he is evil but him having millions in the bank does the trick all the time.those women feel its better to have gold and platinum than to be a working girl making minimum wages.

  34. And 10 years from now they will do a 30 for 30 thing on him and they will make us try to feel sorry for this guy because he lost it all. Umm yeah no…

  35. Makes me sad and amazed. To see these guys living a life that us “mortals” would kill for….and then to see them throw it away because they CAN’T walk away when they get mad is stunning. EVERYONE gets mad…(especially when married), but “Normal” people over the age of 6 know how to WALK AWAY!!!
