With free agency roaring out of the gate, today has been one of those rare occasions where hovering around watching NFL Network doesn't make you a nut job. Following a brief interview with Warren Sapp, Scott Hanson dove into an interview with Scott Pioli, a former front office executive with the Patriots and Chiefs. Unfortunately though, Warren Sapp wasn't happy with the angle of the interview and worse, Sapp was still mic'd up.
Below is the video. (Note: Sapp is going to say some naughty words)...
Although the audio is a bit hard to make out and you can't definitively say it is Sapp, a chorus of keen listeners all tabbed Sapp as the culprit and interpreted the audio as this:
Somebody, perhaps Warren Sapp, said "This is the same bleeping segment we had Mike Lombardi do. The bleeping Bill Belichick bleeping angle."— Greg A. Bedard (@GregABedard) March 12, 2013
And with that, we'd like to invite Sapp to join us as a guest contributor to the site. We can definitely work around his YouTube court room reality show schedule.
Update: Although NFL Network has not issued an apology (odd), Hanson did mention the incident in this clip below.
@awfulannouncing iPhone 5, why this video no worky for me?
NFL Network just issued an apology live on air this morning at the top of their 'Free Agent Frenzy' program. Apologizing to viewers, Belichick, Kraft, and the Patriots.
@awfulannouncing I swear I about died laughing when I seen this last night live... so much for a delay huh?
