Michael Strahan simply doesn't care what Warren Sapp thinks

After Warren Sapp came out and had his say on wether Michael Strahan deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the former New York Giant has retaliated saying he doesn't care about Sapp's opinion. 

Strahan could be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday. This is not something Warren Sapp thinks should happen:

"When you stack it up, he only has four straight Pro Bowls and a mythical sack record that y'all still walk around like it's something to be praised," Sapp said the NFL Network on Tuesday. "I mean y'all have got to get off your high horse in New York and speak about the real. And when you really measure him up, he comes up short."

Upon hearing this the fifth best sacker the game has seen, gave his response. 

"Football was part of my life, but it is not my entire life," said the former defensive end who has gone on to become a celebrity after retirement, co-hosting a talk show with Kelly Ripa, "So for some guys, maybe that's their entire life and that's all they have to hold onto. Playing football, sacking quarterbacks, that was part of my life, and I did it and I moved on. The tiger does not pay attention to the opinion of the sheep."

Michael then turned his attention to Sapp's words about the media being biased towards Strahan and pushing his case in public to become a hall of famer. "I am. I'm all hype," Strahan said. "I lasted 15 years, all hype. I had 141.5 career sacks, all hype. I was always a starter. I played left end, and that made me get sacks. My coaches kept putting me in the game because they felt it gave us the best chance to win, and that was all hype."

I guess the two will agree to disagree.
