Warren Sapp as a player and social network sports media personality has never been afraid to say something controversial to create a little buzz. So when current Oakland Raiders wide receiver Chaz Schilens called Sapp a ‘fool’ and ‘stupid’ in regards to his opinions on the Raiders football team, Sapp couldn’t help himself but to reply.
“Ok Just Woke Up From My Tuesday Slumber. Who’s Chaz Schilens ?? Oh Wasn’t He Just On DWTS? Did He Win??” Sapp tweeted. “My Bad! I Looked Ole Chaz Up, 8 & 6 Starts His 1st Two Yrs. ONE Start In Last 2yrs, Better Start a Career Before It’s Over!
“And someone tell Chaz I left High School 20yrs ago! And in my 4th year I had Pineapple in my Diet!”
Schilens had said earlier:
He played for the Raiders 20 years ago, no one cares what he says, nobody likes him, he’s a joke … Everyone on this team thinks he’s a joke. So, he can make his predictions next week, and we’ll watch ‘em and we’ll go out and win. … That’s about it.
A simple ‘U MAD Bro?’ from Sapp would’ve been sufficient, but Sapp employed the I-don’t-even-know-that-is defense which is wildly successful and popular among high-profile sports stars and celebrities.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson used the same defensive counter move on Tuesday after Jacksonville Jaguars kicker called the wide receiver a ‘punk’ on Twitter.
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis also used it earlier this year against Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jason Hill.
Sapp is a member of the media now and part of his job is to bring in viewers which is exactly what he’s doing. I wonder what he’s going to say about the Raiders on the next show….
