Football News

NFL legend Warren Sapp has been fired following his arrest on Monday morning. It has been revealed that Sapp was arrested for assault and the solicitation of a prostitute.

Subsequently, NFL Network have decided to terminate Warren Sapp's contract following the arrest and this leaves his career in broadcasting in tatters.

The 42-year-old legend had worked for NFL Network since 2008 and was a key cog in the media machine that is the NFL Network. But a spokesperson for NFLN revealed Sapp's fate on Monday.

Sapp fired from NFL Network

“Warren Sapp’s contract has been terminated and he no longer works for NFL Network,” NFLN spokesperson Alex Riethmiller said in a statement released by the channel.

As is the usual case with bizarre and unseemly stories about football players, TMZ Sports were the ones to brake the story on Monday and the website has some pretty disturbing dirt on Sapp following his arrest.

Sapp is accused of soliciting a prostitute - something which he admitted to police, reports say - and he is also accused of injuring two women after an argument over money, which he denies.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive tackle was originally suspended indefinitely before the Network chose to fire him.

Unsavoury end to the season

Though this story will largely go unnoticed due to the huge aftermath of the Super Bowl, it nonetheless provides another sad moment for the reputation of the NFL.

The NFL has been plagued with domestic abuse, child abuse, and stories of murder and rape this season. Sapp's story is in no way as bad as those, but it's certainly one that brings an unsavoury end to the NFL season.
