    Former Packer, Viking, Saint really no saint at all.

    These charges run very much against the persona Sharper built after entering the league in 1997.

    Pretty sure he's from Richmond but my memory isn't what it used to be.

    Nice-looking, well-spoken.
    Didn't have a rep for being a dick as a player.
    Surprising charges.

    Yup. I did a story many years back on his playing piano recitals. He was not the typical jock who went to school simply to play sports. Rape is as nasty as it gets, so this really stuns me.

    Suspended without pay at the network.
    This did not happen to Sapp when he had legal trouble a little while back, as I recall.

    Story didn't give many details on the charges, which I assume will come out later. It's sexual assault, which -- and this is by no means condoning or excusing anything -- we should all know has many different levels. Could be he was a little too grabby on a date, could be he was going full-on Cecil Collins and watching women sleep in their homes.

    Well, there are two separate incidents in California and one in Louisiana.
    Not good.
    I assume NFL Network knew about at least one of the incidents well in advance.

    Yeah, the two separate incidents makes me lean toward something more sinister than him just being Mr. Grabby. Still, it's never a bad idea to wait to pass judgment in these cases.

    I'll say this - the area around NFL Network is crawling with groupies.
    Popular place to chill for folks at Sony and NFLN is at B.J.'s Brewery and Lucille's at Fox Hills Mall.
    It's a virtual buffet for dudes looking for a side piece of ass.

    I know him pretty well and this stunned the hell out of me.

    I have it on good authority that all he did was hold Marshawn Lynch's dick.
