Warren Sapps on-air claim that Jeremy Shockey was the snitch who informed the league office about the Saints bounty program has earned him a talking-to from his NFL Network bosses.

In a statement to PFT, NFL Network Senior Vice President of Programming and Production Mark Quenzel said the matter has been addressed with Sapp.

We have discussed it with Warren and stressed that he is an analyst and not a reporter for NFL Network, Quenzel said. In the future, if he comes across something he thinks is news he will let his producers know and before it is reported or Tweeted, that content will be subject to the same verification procedure that our reporters follow.

Sapp did not name his source for the information about Shockey, which he first posted on Twitter and then reiterated on NFL Network. He said on the air that he had not asked the league office if his source was correct. Shockey has denied that he informed the league office and posted on Twitter what appeared to be a text message from Saints coach Sean Payton absolving Shockey of having anything to do with getting Payton in trouble. Shockey also said he wants the NFL to come down hard on Sapp, saying Sapp should lose his job or at least be suspended or fined.


Seems like Sapp got off easy for now.

Nope, he went on air not long after and repeated it.

We should be careful about everything we re-tell, especially if it involves another person. This applies to life. How many of us have been a victim of innuendo or outright lies told by someone who either has an agenda or is looking to appear important? How much hurt and despair have we sown by thoughtlessly repeating gossip through the years?  Sapp would be livid and ready to explode if the shoe were on the other foot and he was the target of reckless conversation. As my mother used to say "keep your words sweet, you never know when you may have to eat them". A lesson we all should learn from and remember.

Gooood post. But I still tell people off erroneously from time to time. Rarely.

We are all human, we just to continue to try. BTW - I was speaking from personal experience - both sides. I was a reaper and a sower of discontent and hate.

I find that difficult to believe from a sweetheart like you.

I am surprised Warren's ass hasn't been fired yet. May its because his presence makes the shows more lively.

On the NFLs network at that. Its probably just as big of a mistake by the league for having it show cased on air like it was.

It's not Warrens fault that after he tweets in his own personal time they called him and put him on air.
Wouldn't that be the NFL Networks problem not Warrens?
Also if he's not a "reporter" why does it matter that he gets his own personal tweets checked by the league, he's not reporting afterall so it doesn't matter.

Love Warren Sapp as a football player but as an analyst not so much.

Hmmm.

I suspect the explanation was along the lines of - as long as you take my check you will do it my way.  That should be sufficient for just about anyone.
