Warren Sapp needs to stop beating up Ndamukong Suh

By Greg Bolotin

Did Warren Sapp forget what happened on Feburary 7th 2011?  He was arrested for domestic battery charges for allegedly choking a woman.  (The charges were eventually dropped.)  Sapp should not be running his mouth about what Ndamukong Suh did this past Thanksgiving.  (Suh stepped on Evan Dietrich-Smith.)

Sapp has embarrassed the NFL enough.  (The domestic battery allegations led to his eventual suspension from the NFL Network.)  Sapp, complaining about Suh, said, “How’s he still standing there talking about [how] he was stepping away from this man? In what universe does he live in? I don’t get it.”  The bottom line is that Warren Sapp needs to understand that criticizing Suh’s actions on the field is hypocritical when, off the field, Sapp has some pretty scary skeletons of his own.

Sapp certainly has the right, as a football analyst, to critique players.  But when it comes to questioning another’s character, such as Ndamukong Suh, we should all take it with a grain of salt.  Sapp walks a fine line.  The pot calling the kettle black can hardly be considered critique or analysis.  Maybe Sapp should pay more attention to his own issues.

Suh has apologized enough [already] for his actions this past Thanksgiving.  It is time to move on.  Get ready to watch and enjoy the Super Bowl.  Then all of the NFL teams and their players can start to prepare for the upcoming 2012 season.  And that is what Suh wants to do.  He knows that he will have his detractors, and that analysts will always find a way to get on him for anything and everything.  If Suh is able to produce the way the Detroit Lions and their fans know he will, there are only good things to look forward to in the 2012 season.


NOTE: I would be remiss if I did not reiterate that allegations against Sapp have been dropped and he has since returned to “analyzing” for the NFL Network.
