    Adds more weight to the fact
    "By the time they have been retired for two years, 78% of former NFL players have gone bankrupt or are under financial stress because of joblessness or divorce.

    I am sure there is a Voodoo doll of Sapp somewhere in the hands of a disgruntled Saints fan. :D

    It's a shame to see someone making over half a million dollars a year, coming of a multi-million dollar career, declare bankruptcy.

    Sapp really blew his opportunity. The NFL job looked like it required limited hours, 20 weeks a year or so, but created an opportunity for other engagements. With that platform, he could get speaking roles, appearances, probably endorsements (as I write this, Charles Barkley is smiling at me in the banner above showing off his 40 pound loss as a paid endorser for Weight Watchers). So he could have had time enough to double his work output and still take 10 weeks of vacation.

    Second, $540K? Seriously? They can't get those guys for less than that? There are a lot of other people offering them $300K, $400K for their time?

    For some reason i hate these ******* news about ex athletes going broke...TO,Rodman,Sapp. Whose ******* business is it?

    And why drop Sapp? Atleast he is a character and somewhat funny. Some of those other knuckleheads are far worse.

    Actually, I believe it's the fact that he identified Shockey as the possible snitch that got him in the mess with NFLN. As I understand it, Sapp could be in legal trouble for identifying a possible whistle blower.

    Probably because none of them incorrectly outed a guy as a snitch on the NFL's own network.

    Guess he was unable to outrun his creditors, no matter which of the 240 pair of Nikes he tried. Hopefully some of his kids will be able to wear those shoes. I feel bad for them.

    What I can't figure out is that he owes the IRS over $1M. Should they have been knocking on his employer's door a long time ago?

    I'm feeling unhealthy amounts of schadenfreude right now. Ever since he "outed" Shockey, I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop, and coming right in the midst of his bankruptcy makes it even better.

    I think I can hear Jeremy Shockey laughing from here.

    One of the only guys on NFLN who's funny. I'm telling ya I see why they're doing this but NFLN is going down the tubes. I bet they'll replace him with some arrogant guy nobody likes, a guy similar to Colin Cowherd on ESPN.

    Actually, it is Russ Hochstein (for those of us who remember the week before SB 38).

    And he's laughing his ASSS off right now!

    Funny to look at perhaps or maybe funny in an unintentional way. I always thought he was a bit extreme. One thing that has bugged me about Sapp is his tendency to equate football with "manhood" and "going to war" and "being a man," etc., etc. Just goes to show how some of these guys who've never lived in the real world believe that playing a game is the biggest measure of a person.

    Eisen is an excellent host. The only real pro at NFLN.
    Mayock is great, Charles Davis is ok. Prime playing his roll, Much is alright...rest of the analyst crew are truly awful.
    Maybe we'll see more of Heath Evans now but likely a new -not-so-funny-big mouth-ex-pro coming in :bricks:

    I agree ........ he always compares/talks about football as if it is a war zone and the players shouldn't complain if they lose their lives playing it....I for one will be glad if he is gone.............wasn't he one of the people who would sing the irritating tebow.....teboooooooooowwwwwww chant after every instance of Tim Tebow videos being played on nfln?

    I wonder if Warren's stint on "Inside the NFL" was part of his NFLN contract? If not, then at least the guy will have some sort of income.. Though, I have a feeling he'll be flipping burgers or pushing a broom somewhere.

    Can't wait to go downtown to the McDonalds only to find Warren Sapp working at the drive-thru. Maybe the Dunkin Donuts Gronk was at will take him in, I'm sure the big fella' loves his donuts!! :D

    I'm smelling B.S. Here

    Sapp Probably has an offshore bank account with several million in his Swiss account so that when Shockey and his lawyers come calling to sue,he won't get wiped out.

    I would bet more than just a few pro athletes are hiding serious cash outside the US borders and away from Uncle Sam's outstretched arms.
