Sapp Next In The Ring?

March 22nd, 2013

Joe knows eye-RAH! Kaufman of The Tampa Tribune just parked himself in front of Team Glazer for a half hour or so at the NFL owners meetings in Arizona this week. So Joe’s figuring Kaufman might have special insight behind his bold claim about the next Bucs Ring of Honor inductee.

Via Twitter today, Kaufman told his minions to expect Warren Sapp to follow Lee Roy Selmon, John McCay, Jimmy Giles and Paul Gruber into the beloved Ring.

@IKaufmanTBO – Not much suspense surrounding the next member of the Bucs Ring of Honor. Expect new Hall of Fame inductee Warren Sapp to be the 5th man in

Joe’s fine with the choice of Sapp, if Team Glazer goes that direction.

Joe likes the old-school-first approach, but it would be cool to have Sapp in the Ring on the heels his Hall of Fame induction in August.

Might “Warren Sapp Day” prompt a sellout in Tampa? After the fan response to the 10-year Super Bowl anniversary game last season, Joe believes it would.

    I hope so.

    Joe, please don’t ever bring up that 10th year anniversary game again. Ever.

    Marcus Jones would love to see Sapp in the ring.

    Great player, horrible person.

    brooks\dungy doubleheader next year if they both get the first ballot HOF nod. man i can’t wait to see players and coaches of that caliber, in their prime, suiting up for the bucs again. we have some players who are starting to look the part but not quite there yet.

  5. Jimvet Says:

    Sapp in the ring, you bet. Most entertaining Buc ever. Practiced like he played. All the ‘fans’ who don’t like him? He isnt OJ, he isn’t Vick, so he threw a lot of money at women and cars. The list is very long on that one.

  6. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Word is Ronde has decided to play again. We should see an announcement in the next few days, if not sooner.

    Hey Joe. I know its not a good place for this but can you make a mobile app of your website?

  8. BigMacAttack Says:

    I think Sapp should be in the Ring, but after Derrick Brooks. Better player, better for the community and more deserving, HOF or not. Derrick Brooks is the Ultimate Buc, always has been, always will be. He has my vote for next entry, not Sapp. Sapp was a Raider, Brooks was a Buc.

  9. Vic66 Says:

    Give the man his dues for the job he did at football. He played his heart out and his arse off for the Buccaneers!

  10. RastaMon Says:

    I go with the old school names early too….

  11. Ed Schwartz Says:

    Best thing that ever happened to Warren Sapp was signing Simeon Rice. Best thing that ever happened to Simeon Rice was playing on the same DLine as Sapp. Besides Sapp and Selmon, Rice was best ever defensive lineman who played for Tampa Bay.

  12. Cmurda Says:

    Big Mac, Im cool on everything until Sapp was a Raider? Come on man, come on.

  13. andres Says:

    Sapp a raider? No way dood. Bucs gave the money to Booger and nothing Sapp could do, he had to play somewhere!

  14. andres Says:

    What Ed said. The most forgotten great Dline guys Rice is first on the list followed by the dependable Mr. Spires.

  15. Joe Dunn Says:

    Great player…..ASS Breath of a person

  16. BigMacAttack Says:

    I knew that would ruffle a few feathers. I recant. Haha

  17. Dave Says:

    I think they should do Sapp, Brooks, and Lynch together

  18. Rrsrq Says:

    I think Doug Williams should go next, but I’m good with Sapp.

  19. Deria Says:

    I’m wondering if Dunn will ever be part of the Ring of Honor.

  20. kh Says:

    The Bucs had to put Sapp in the Ring of Honor. How could he be elected to the Hall of Fame and not be one of the best Bucs ever?!?

  21. Eric Says:

    That’s McKay Mr. Joe…..

    Sapp is deserving but I would love to see Doug next.

  22. buxfan11 Says:

    IMHO the hall of fame is only for those with exemplary stats and numbers. a ring of honor induction should represent both the numbers AND great character in and around the community he played for. I would feel disgusted if I walked into the stadium and had to see his name enshrined up there all the while knowing how awful he treated almost every living soul he came in contact with. FWIW I feel the same about Pete Rose, numbers wise he belongs in HOF. any other “honors” forget about it!

  23. Pete I Says:

    Sapp as a hof er should make the ring however old bucs first. Doug Williams James Wilder et al.

    But sapp is ok as a modern buc as he is in the hof or will be

  24. Oahubuc Says:

    Hardy should go next, but I’m cool with Sapp.

  25. andres Says:

    I doubt Hardy would ever make it in the ring.

  26. Dave Says:


    That is your definition and opinon.
    I do not like Sapp. He is a poor excuse of a human.
    BUT…….. as for his play on the feild and what he meant to the Bucs as a player, he deserves to be in the ring.

    I am all for going with another old timer and doing Sapp, Lunch, and Brooks togeth

    Prior to them they need to do Dungy and Kiffin
