    oh warren. just keep chasing away all traces of admiration and respect for you that exist in the world. Still one of my all time favorites with the pads & helmet on, but i can’t understand or defend your choices off the field

    The guy is a Baltimore Raven and wants to wear 99 because he admires Sapp;s game, what is the big deal.
    Did Sapp get coprights to the No, 99 in the entire NFL?
    Give me a break big fella.
    Maybe all this crazy talk is just Sapp setting up the NFL for another concussion lawsuit.

    I can see where Sapp is coming from.

    It’s not that he has a problem with the guy wearing the number…

    It’s the fact that Jernigan has Sapp’s phone number, but yet doesn’t even ask him for advice or guidance, and then pays “tribute” to him. It’s completely off-the-wall.

    Jernigan is an NFL player, and if he wants to wear 99, that’s fine, but like Sapp said, he should be more focused on making a name for himself.

    Sapp is being an idiot. Seems like he’d have more important things in his life to blather about.

      Hank Scorpio

      He was asked about something and gave his feelings on it. It’s not like he called a press conference to talk about it. I see where he’s coming from, but he’s being a bit petty.

    Any truth to the rumor that Jameis decided to go with # 3 instead of his FSU # 5 as a tribute to former kicker Matt Bryant because that 62 yard game winning FG against Jameis’ beloved Eagles (at the time) really made an impression on the youngster?

      I thought he just wanted to be as far away from Josh Freeman as possible. 🙂

      Since scubog posed a question, I will only offer what the Bucs said when his jersey was issued – that 3 was the first number he wore as a football player. Any of the above could be true. For all I know, his grandma may have picked the number. lol.

    “I’m not just trying to hold up my standard – I’m only the fifth defensive tackle first ballot Hall of Famer in NFL history – the ones before me were Bob Lilly, Merlin Olson, Mean Joe Greene and Randy White. I am in a company of five, so when you talk about me, you better bring the other four with me because that is the standard that I held myself to.” I have to type that those guys are incredible company for Warren to be in. I never realized that fact before now. VERY impressive and I get where he is coming from here.

    Sapp, what a great player, that’s where it ends

    Oh, man, Sapp got his feelings hurt again.

  10. 10


    To paraphrase Jack Nicholson in the movie, “As Good As It Gets,” “Go sell crazy somewhere else Sapp, we’re all stocked up here.”

    Sapp wanted to say but tried to be politically correct…. “Keep my name out your mouth”

    Let’s see, Jernigan thinks Sapp was a great player, but won’t call him because he’s an asshole. Pretty much the way everyone feels about Sapp.
