“It’s Like If Someone Slapped Your Wife.”January 24th, 2012
Joe can find few if any Bucs fans who are racing through the streets in celebration that the Bucs are one step closer to hiring Mike Sherman to replace jettisoned Bucs coach Raheem Morris.
Given Sherman’s heated past with former Bucs great Warren Sapp, it seems ironic at best the Bucs would even consider Sherman for that reason alone. Just the fact Sherman got one interview provoked Sapp into a series of stabs at Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik on Twitter.
Count Shaun King to be confused by this move as well. King, who may have saved Sherman from a hospital visit when he came between Sapp and Sherman during their faceoff, all but said while co-hosting his “King David Show” with Toby David, heard on WQYK-AM 1010, if Team Glazer hires Sherman, they are ex-communicating Sapp from the Bucs franchise.
“It’s anti-Warren Sapp. They can’t have it both ways. It’s like if someone slapped your wife. We cannot hire Mike Sherman,” King said. “You cannot hire Mike Sherman, no if ands or buts about it. If you hire Mike Sherman you are anti-Warren Sapp.
“You have to choose if you are a Bucs fan. You are either pro-Sherman or pro-Sapp. If you are pro-Sherman, you are anti-Sapp. If the Glazers hire Mike Sherman, they are anti-Warren Sapp. If the Glazers hire Mike Sherman, Warren Sapp never gets in the Ring of Honor.
“If you are pro-Sherman, you are not a Bucs fan any more.”
About the only interesting thing Joe can see coming out of hiring Sherman, in a perverse way, is to see Sapp’s angry reaction to the move.
