Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems

Sapp-and-Shockey-630x407

The past few weeks haven’t been kind to former NFL star and current NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp. First, the potential Hall of Fame defensive tackle came under fire for baselessly accusing former Saint Jeremy Shockey for “ being the rat” in the New Orleans bounty scandal.

Now Sapp is under fire for a different reason – he’s broke and owes people money.

According to CNNSI, Sapp has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Florida.  A player who was once among the top paid defensive players in the game has to sell his Super Bowl Ring and NCAA championship ring to help pay off creditors and his mountainous child support and alimony.

Sapp follows the footsteps of so many other remarkably rich athletes that couldn’t steer clear of financial traps. He should call AI (Allen Iverson) for some advice on “how to make it in America after you lose millions.”

Sapp’s pitfalls should be a shining example to young athletes on how not to conduct themselves when they essentially win the lottery. Moreover, in an America where job security is fleeting and money is tighter than ever before, Sapp’s story serves as a reminder for why overindulged athletes remain unsympathetic figures in the public’s eyes.
