    OT -- Sapp is "likely" out at NFLN



    Since media coverage seems to spark a decent debate, I figured I'd throw this one out there.

    Per PFT, looks like Sapp is being shown the door at the NFL Network. And it appears he's another one in a growing line of ex pro athletes who are going broke.

    Personally, I've hated him as an analyst and I'm glad to see him go simply because he makes Total Access unwatchable.

    Please let Jamie Dukes be next

    Can't stand him

    Doesn't he know you can show passion and interest without shouting and talking over people

    Derrick Mason did a bit of work for NFL Network a few months back.
    He was genuinely very good at it, not just saying that as he is an ex-Raven
    He's a man with a career in the media I reckon

    edit, sorry, went a bit offtopic

    I can list a bunch of "analysts" I hate more than Sapp on the NFL network, Jamie Dukes is the worse. They are all clearly biased towards certain teams, I think we all know those teams.

    Dukes, Sapp, Sanders,Irving, and Keyshown would make an excellent program together. It would be off the hook and unwatchable to fans who hate the antics they provide. Sapp will now appear on some reality show.

    That is EXACTLY what I can't stand about Dukes.

    Warren Sapp I thought of more as a "personality" than an analyst. I enjoyed him at times.

    I know they are owned by the league but they claimed to be separate.

    Just naivety on my part so for believing that
    When have the ever said they were independent of the league? Jerry Jones is one of the principle owners.

    I didn't mind Sapp, he wasn't a brady, manning ballswasher like the rest of em, he actually stuck up for the small teams and the guys that actually played the game with passion, mostly defensive teams (maybe cause the guy played defense). Atleast he was honest and told it like it was, Dukes on the other hand is a bitch.

    I couldn't begin to guess what went through his head with the Jeremy Shockey finger-pointing, but...

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Again, like a number of athletes, entertainers, even moguls like Donald Trump before him...I doubt Sapp is destitute. There's "Hollywood" broke which often involves a bankruptcy filing to restructure debt, but barely means you're $100 from being on the street, and then "broke broke" which the everyday working guy falls victim to. Don't believe the hype.

    Secondly, I think Sapp may be feeling the swift, unforgiving hand of King Roger as collateral damage in Bountygate. I don't know the particulars of the Shockey situation, but I'm going to miss him on Gameday AM. He played a great straight man to Michael Irvin's over the top, church deaconesque antics...
