Sapp Says He Would Fight Shockey

June 22nd, 2012
“Jimminy Christmas, you know who I’m picking to win. I wouldn’t bet a nickel on some fuc*n pretty boy tight end.”

Talk about a pay-per-view Joe would fork over good money to see. It seems Warren Sapp is ready to get into a bare-knuckles street brawl with Jeremy Shockey.

Now Sapp is good with Shockey in the aftermath of Sapp fingering Shockey as the Saints Bountygate snitch, but if Shockey ain’t good with Sapp, well, No. 99 will throw down, so Sapp told sports radio 98.5 in Boston, via Here’s an excerpt:

On if Shockey is OK with him:
“The two times I’ve seen him I haven’t had a problem with him, but if he does we can go out in the grass and get it over with. … I don’t have a problem with getting my knuckles a little scarred up.”

On reporting the information from his source:
“It isn’t something that I’m running from or hiding from or anything like that. It is what it is. You’ve got a source that gives you information, you’re gonna go with it. It’s simple, because I’m not a reporter. My boss made that clear to me. Got it. Check. You won’t have to worry about it again. Some things you don’t share, some things you do.”

The whole Shockey-snitch thing with Sapp cracks Joe up. Joe gets that the NFL Network doesn’t want Sapp “reporting” anymore, but Joe thinks that’s a bit of a joke. Sapp’s got a load of sources around the league and certainly he should be able to tap those and run any information he gets by the NFL Network producers.

And Joe really does hope Sapp and Shockey settle any score — if there is one — in a steel cage match on pay-per-view. Sapp certainly could use the money, and Joe could use a great laugh from the weigh-in shenanigans.

  2. Lion Says:

    I wouldn’t doubt one bit if Shockey truly was the snitch.

  3. BigMacAttack Says:

    I don’t if Shockey is a snitch, but he is a bitch. Judge Sapp should just hold him in contempt.

  4. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Is Sapp trying to lose his job again?

    It is really sad to see 2 ex Miami Hurricanes so polarized.

  8. Stevek Says:

    Sapp is brutally honest.

    Shockley has been a diva.

    I say, “Go Sapp”. I believe #99 is right.

    Warren Sapp is a trip. He’ll find a way to land on his feet every time.
    I wouldn’t approach him without an introduction, not my style, but he
    remains one of the most entertaining and skilled players I ever saw play.

    When he came onto the football field he was all business and it was a joy to watch his relentless and enthusiastic play.

    Buccaneers in 2012?

    Can’t WAIT!!!

    Com’on Joe, you know the “Man Channel” doesn’t run there programming around rumor,gossip driven themes like BSPN does to build a story out of nothing to increase ratings.The sports media culture that BSPN has created is what made Sapp think it was OK to mention it in the first place.The NFL Network made it known to Sapp they don’t roll that way.So did Inside the NFL.

    Love Warren Sapp but I don’t agree with him outing Shockey.

    Wouldn’t want to face Warren in the Octogon although I have fought many very talented opponents and have many aches and pains to show for it. At his weight and athleticism, he would be a nightmare.
