Michael Strahan responds to Warren Sapp; Chad Johnson mediates

Michael Strahan Warren Sapp

Michael Strahan responded early Friday morning to Warren Sapp, who seemingly bragged Wednesday about making it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame over Strahan.

Sapp was announced last weekend as one of the members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013. He made it over Strahan, who is one of the best defensive ends in NFL history and will almost assuredly be elected to Canton next year.

During an interview with WDAE’s Tom Jones and Rick Stroud Wednesday, Sapp was asked if he had doubts about making it. He said he did when it came down to him and Strahan.

“Say if I rewind this to Saturday at 12 o’clock me and you are sitting and I say, ‘It breaks down whatever and whatever and then you have Michael Strahan and me. C’mon, the menace and the media darling,’” Sapp said, via Joe Bucs Fan. “C’mon. Madness, or Good Morning America? I mean, c’mon.”

Strahan, who is enjoying a post-football career as an analyst for “FOX NFL Sunday” and host of “Live! with Kelly and Michael,” didn’t understand why Sapp had to invoke his name. He sent a few tweets to Sapp Friday about the matter:

Former Bucs respond to Bill Callahan allegations: We killed them fair and square

bill callahan raidersWe already know how many of 2002 Oakland Raiders feel about Tim Brown claiming that Bill Callahan sabotaged the team in Super Bowl XXXVII. Aside from Jerry Rice, it appears that Brown’s opinion is not shared by many members of the team. And it certainly isn’t shared by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who feel they earned the victory.

“You’re telling me (Callahan) threw it, Super Bowl, everything on the line?” Warren Sapp told Martin Fennelly of The Tampa Tribune over the phone. “That’s like being at 25,000 on Mount Everest, and you only got 4,000 feet left, crisp, clear, top of the mountain in sight, and you just go, ‘Nah, I think I’ll just lay here a while.’”

Former Bucs linebacker Derrick Brooks said “some things don’t deserve a response,” but added that he texted Keyshawn Johnson and some of his other former teammates when he heard about Brown’s comments.

Looks like Warren Sapp lied about losing his Super Bowl ring

warren-sappWarren Sapp may have surrendered many valuable items when he filed for bankruptcy, but his Super Bowl ring was not one of them.

You may recall that when Sapp filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, he reportedly claimed that he had lost his Super Bowl and NCAA national championship rings. We said at the time that Sapp was probably lying so that he wouldn’t be forced to sell the rings during the liquidation process. It looks like we were right.

An astute Joe Bucs Fan reader pointed out to the website that it looked like Sapp was wearing his Super Bowl ring to last weekend’s Eagles-Buccaneers game (photo here). There was a 10th anniversary celebration of the ’02 Super Bowl last weekend, and many were wearing the ring (photos here).

Joe Bucs Fan says Sapp may have had a replica ring made, though most people suspect he was really hiding it all along. I imagine most people probably would have done the same thing had they been in his situation.

Back in April, Sapp told a pretty convincing tale about losing the ring.

“Is it so unbelievable that I misplaced my ring?” said Sapp, a first-round pick out of Miami in 1995. “I wore it for 365 days, and we had a 7-9 season (in Tampa Bay in 2003) and I went to Oakland and I took it off. You never saw me with it anywhere. The only time I brought it out was when the NFL Network wanted us to wear it.

“We were at the Super Bowl, and I thought I handed it to someone, and he said I didn’t. I checked my luggage to see if it was in a side pocket. I checked my suit to see if I put it somewhere. What was I going to do? Yell and scream because I lost a ring? That ring didn’t make me a champion. Derrick Brooks, Simeon Rice, Ronde Barber, Brian Kelly, Dwight Smith. That crew made me a champion.

“In my life, has anyone called me a liar? Why would I start now? Someone told me something that John Adams supposedly said. Facts are stubborn. I like facts.”

This coming from the same guy who called Jeremy Shockey the bounty snitch. Sorry, Warren, we’re not buying it.

Warren Sapp rips Ndamukong Suh, says he is wasting his talent

Warren Sapp is not a fan of Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The former pass-rushing specialist made that clear once again during an appearance on “The Jim Rome Show” on Thursday, when he basically said Suh cannot seem to get a grip on the mental aspect of the game of football.

“When I watch him after a Sunday, when I sit down and watch the tape, get inside of it, he plays the game with no awareness, and just a blindness that I’ve never seen from a guy with that kind of ability and talent,” Sapp said, via MLive.com. “He’s just wasting it. Then you see him make two, three plays a game, and outside of him kicking (Schaub) in the groin, when did he make another play?”

More specifically, Sapp said Suh is always looking to rush the passer instead of making other plays that would help his team just as much or even more. He said he hasn’t “evolved as a pass rusher” and doesn’t use his head when lining up in certain situations where you should know what the opposition is going to do.

Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife Heather Clem reportedly made sex tapes with Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart

This sex tape business involving wrestler Hulk Hogan, shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge, and Bubba’s ex-wife Heather Clem (now Heather Cole, and pictured) is taking another wild turn.

We passed along a report in March saying that an alleged Hulk Hogan sex tape was being shopped. The video was real, and Gawker.com was sued by the Hulkster for publishing it.

The video was of Hogan having sex with the ex-wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge, Heather Clem. Reports last month claimed that Clem regularly had sex with other men with Bubba’s consent, so long as she videotaped it.

Now, Gawker, which is being sued for $100 million for posting a clip of the sex tape on their website, reports that Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart, and Aubrey Huff are among those who also had sex with Clem on tape.

It seems like an odd group, but we can at least explain two of the hookups: former Bucs DL Sapp and former Rays 1B/OF Huff were both big athletes in the Tampa area where Bubba broadcasts from. And Stewart, well Stewart just loves women.

Warren Sapp calls Brandon Marshall a ‘retard,’ Marshall rips Sapp in return

Warren Sapp getting himself into trouble by saying dumb things is nothing new, but that doesn’t mean the subjects of his criticism can’t take it personally. Brandon Marshall is furious with Sapp, and rightfully so. During an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” Friday, Sapp called Marshall a “retard” while ranting about how players in today’s game don’t respect the NFL’s past.

“These kids that play the game today have no relevance for the past. Have no conscious of what it is,” Sapp said according to CBS Chicago. “I mean, Brandon Marshall talking about Shannon Sharpe, who is he to talk? He’s the first 100 catch receiver, back-to-back, retard. What you just did in Denver for three years. You don’t know this? No, of course he doesn’t, because it’s not about Brandon Marshall, it ain’t about (inaudible), it ain’t about the past, it’s about me. It’s about personal success, pay me, and now I’ll think about being a team guy.”
