If anyone commented on this, I missed it. Sapp and Brandon Marshall had a public, through the media, war of words.
Here's a quick rundown in case you missed it:
Sterling Sharpe commented that he didn't think marshall gave a good effort in the game against MIA.
Marshall responded with: "commentators need to stop worrying about stuff they know nothing about."
So, Sapp then takes it upon himself to say players today have no respect for history, and about Marshall specifically, "He's the first 100-catch receiver (tight end) back to back, retard." Sapp was talking about Shannon Sharpe. Apparently unaware Marshall directed his comments to elder Sterling. Who's the retard?
Anyway, here's Marshall's BRILLIANT response:
I got a really disturbing heads-up on something Warren Sapp said, called me retarded. That's really disappointing to hear that from an NFL legend, but I'm going to take this as a lesson, and I think we all can learn from this. Be very careful who you take advice from. You want to surround yourself with good people, godly people.
When I look at Warren Sapp, I can't go to him and talk about finances because he filed for bankruptcy. I can't go to him and talk about my marriage because he filed for divorce. I can't go to him and talk about being a father because one day I'm going to have children because he's not active in his children's life.
He SHREDDED that fat piece of garbage. After this, through some back and forth via twitter and email...Sapp challenged marshall to a fight! What a LOSER! I don't HATE many people, but as I said a few months back, this guy is simply a bad human being. He's slime, selfish, totally self absorbed and I'll be glad when his stupid round face doesn't appear on television, and his slurring fat guy voice, which he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to correct (fail) doesn't pollute the airwaves.
Marshall has since apologized...while maintaining he believes everything he said. just wished he didn't say it publicly.
HA! Good for you Brandon!
No apology from Sapp regarding his callous use of the word 'retard' either. Again showing how totally clueless he is. Did I mention he's a fat slob yet? Well, he is.
