What a Sapp
Warren Sapp, on the rule prohibiting players from "waltzing" through the other team's pregame warmups in a childish display of gamesmanship:
"He (Redskins LB LaVar Arrington) got what he wanted. He snitched and slave master come down. That's all that is. ... Stop a man from doing something that he's been doing for nine years? And so now there's a rule against me. Thanks. I knew (the league) was gonna do what they did because they've been notoriously against Sapp. Like I said before, it's a slave system. Make no mistake about it, slave master say you can't do it, don't do it. They'll make an example out of you."
Man, Warren, you poor soul. You're right! It's a slave system. Good thing you said something, because I must have missed ROOTS III - The NFL. What a travesty of justice.
Does Mr. Sapp have any idea how childish and whiny he sounds? Does he have any idea how childish he looks skipping his fat arse about the field on game day? Slave Master?
Actually, I think I do remember that miniseries. You know, the one where Kunta Kinte gets off the boat, signs a multi-million dollar deal, goes on to fame and fortune and become a household name because of his good play and fat mouth.
Warren's words were a slap in the face to those who actually suffered as slaves and to those who suffered under the environment of the South where losing their slave-owning rights took a long time to swallow. Where are the calls to shut him up? Why can Warren Sapp shoot off with racially charged and downright offensive language with impunity? It's ridiculous.
More to the point, why can't he take his correction like a man?
Let me tell you something, Mr. Sapp. Your behavior is not endearing. It's offensive, annoying, and immature. Your words are offensive, putrid, and downright ugly. You went overboard, finally pissed someone off, and had to pay the price. And you cry about the slave master.
When Kunta Kinte disobeyed the slave master, did they issue a polite statement and make him work for free for 4 or 5 minutes the following Sunday? No, sir. They whipped his arse until he was dead, Warren. Dead. That's slavery. Slaves didn't have a multi-million dollar salary. Slave didn't drive the latest in carriages. Slaves didn't have endorsement deals. Slaves couldn't run to the media to complain about their ill treatment. They were slaves. And their treatment was ill treatment.
You, Mr. Sapp, finally got slapped on the hand for being a pernicious jackass. Buck up and take it like a man. You don't know what slavery is, so stop insulting the memory of those who did.
