Chidi Ahanotu Details Sapp Bullying, Fight

November 7th, 2013

Per Chidi Ahonotu, Warren Sapp bullied him in 1997 because he didn’t like Ahonotu challenging his on-field stardom. Ahonotu had 10 sacks in 1997.

The hazing/bullying spotlight in Miami continues to revive stories of the known Chidi Ahanotu/Warren Sapp fueds back in the glory days of the Bucs.

“Sapp bullied a lot of people, man,” Ahanutu said on the Ron and Ian show today on WDAE-AM 620. “But I mean let’s get one thing straight. I didn’t have a problem with Sapp bullying me. … This isn’t Disney World, bro. You gotta know what somebody’s made of. …I didn’t have a problem with Sapp coming at me the way he was, because I was going to come right back at him. And that’s what I did.”

Ahanutu tells the story of his locker room fight with Warren Sapp, after former Bucs defensive linemen Tyoka Jackson and Steve White made him approach Sapp without using his helmet as a weapon. Ahanotu also explains that Sapp targeted him, in part, because he challenged him for top dog on the Bucs’ defensive line in the late 1990s.

    Sapp is all about football. -One of best d tackles ever, and the perfect teammate if all you want to do is win.

    Without Sapp, no Super Bowl.

    Glad we’ve been looking so closely at happenings from yesteryear. We’ve exhausted everything there is to be said about this year’s abomination. Let’s just spend the rest of the year recapping what it was like when this team was both talented and well coached at the same time.

    so happy that I unloaded my Dolphins’ game tickets – I can’t stand to listen to Warren Sapp talk…..this will be the first RoH induction ceremony that I’ll miss – and I’m not upset about it whatsoever.
