    I get the feeling this retirement won't stick, and we'll see him at least once more, but that's what he says, anyway.

  2. I thought he retired to Oakland a few years ago ...

    ESPN will probably hire him. He can't be any worse than Emmitt.

    Considering how his NFL career began (draft day, in particular), I'd say he did pretty well for himself.

    It did seem as if a black cloud was hanging over him and everybody else in a Raiders uniform once he arrived in Oakland.

    If he's a former athlete and has a pulse, ESPN will pursue him.

    Used to be a big Sapp fan but his last year in Tampa ... man, I wanted to punch him every time someone put a microphone in his face.
    He became a classic case of buying into the hype.

    so what you're saying is next season he will not...

  8. Didn't realize he was still in the league until his meltdown in Jacksonville a couple weeks ago.

    Warren Sapp was good. But he's no Terry Tate.

    Missed the meltdown. Is it on YouTube?

    When I think of him, the Beyonce dance he did is the first thing that comes to mind.

    I'll always remember him in the locker room after games (my perspective coming from Tampa years). He'd sit at his locker and have a towel spread out in front of him on the floor to catch his dip spit, and writers who crowded too close ran the risk of getting their shoes doused.
