“Know For A Fact He Was Broke Up Over That”August 5th, 2013
Flying on Team Glazer’s chartered plane to Warren Sapp’s Hall of Fame ceremonies, former Buccaneers guard and Sapp teammate Ian Beckles (1990-1996) joined many fellow ex-Bucs in a strong show of solidarity by the organization for Sapp.
Sapp thanked and mentioned many former teammates and coaches during his Saturday speech, but he did not breathe the names Monte Kiffin or Rod Marinelli.
Speaking as co-host on his radio show this morning, Ron and Ian on WDAE-AM 620, Beckles said he ran into Marinelli in Canton and shared that Marinelli was hurt.
“I know for a fact he was broke up over that,” Beckles said. (You can hear Beckles’ full take on his Marinelli encounter and the Marinelli-Kiffin omission below.)
Joe can’t speak to Sapp’s personal relationships, and Sapp can thank — or not thank — whoever he wants publicly. On the surface, however, it seems Sapp intentionally blew off two guys who had big impacts on his career, especially considering Sapp praised Marinelli to ESPN hours earlier.
