Warren Sapp annoyed many people who are connected to the New York Giants organization last week when he made the argument that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Simeon Rice deserves the make the Hall of Fame before Michael Strahan. Sapp framed the comments in a way that they were just as much of an insult to Strahan as they were a compliment to Rice.
On Monday, former Giants running back Tiki Barber became the first person to publicly defend Strahan. Pat Hanlon, the teams senior director of communications, joined him with a funny tweet on Tuesday night.
Warren Sapp should take Brian Cashman's advice…

Hanlon is quite popular on Twitter (more than 35,000 followers) and is known for tweeting some entertaining stuff. For those of you who don’t get the reference, Brian Cashman ripped Alex Rodriguez with some vulgar language on Tuesday for being too open with the public about his rehab.
While some people feel that Hanlon’s tweet was unnecessary, so too were Sapp’s comments. Having said that, Warren is simply looking for attention per usual. In a way, Barber and Hanlon did him a favor.Google+
