Michael Strahan Feuding with Warren Sapp

Many thought that when they were announcing the Hall of Fame entrants before Super Bowl Sunday that Michael Strahan and Warren Sapp would be competing for the same spot in this years class. Michael Strahan certainly has the higher profile, in a lot of ways the more glamorous career, and now has filled in for Regis Philbin on the early morning TV show. This had many, including me, thinking Strahan would get the nod over Sapp.

Sapp agreed.

“Say if I rewind this to Saturday at 12 o’clock me and you are sitting and I say, ‘It breaks down whatever and whatever and then you have Michael Strahan and me.  C’mon, the menace and the media darling,’” Sapp told WDAE in Tampa, via JoeBucsFan.com.  “C’mon.  Madness, or Good Morning America?  I mean, c’mon.”

Strahan heard the comments, or read them, not sure, and responded how everyone responds now a days. No not bottle throwing like Chris Brown and Drake, but the more passive aggressive Twitter route. Even huge NFL players who hold single season quarterback demolition records take the passive aggressive route that is Twitter.

“You never cease to amaze me!” Strahan said to Sapp.  “Enjoy your moment.  You don’t need to take a shot at me to justify yourself to other people.”

But I mean, do you really see Sapp not getting the last word….

Whoa, did Sapp just call him out? Did he tell him to call him and settle it like men.

Oh that’s sweet. He’s saying he isn’t competing with Strahan and wished him “all the best.” That’s sweet.

Well, Michael Strahan wasn’t above one more last passive aggressive tweet disguised as a compliment. Well that’s a somewhat happy ending… Wait what!?! Michael Strahan didn’t see the “u have my # tweet.” It’s back on like a WWE Title Match at the Royal Rumble!

As of this posting that was the last tweet from either…. But Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson wanted to jump in, and we’ll leave you with his tweet to end this. As the war of words continues we’ll keep adding to this piece.


Someone tweeted them both and said Strahan was a better football player, this isn’t news except for the fact that Sapp responded.
