JEREMY SHOCKEY WANTS THE NFL TO PUNISH NETWORK ANALYST WARREN SAPP FOR SAYING HE'S AN INFORMANT (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=An2jWXaYxwEzErVqGuS_7rpDubYF?slug=jc-cole_jeremy_shockey_warren_sapp_saints_bounty_0322 12)

"Free agent tight end <span class="ysp-player">Jeremy Shockey (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5900/)</span> continued to
vent his displeasure with NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp and the league in
general over accusations that he was an informant in the New Orleans Saints (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nor/) bounty
scandal that resulted in extensive penalties for the team.


Shockey continued to emphatically deny he said anything to the league and
communicated that directly with Saints coach Sean Payton on Thursday. Shockey
said he has not been contacted by anyone with the NFL regarding its apparent
violation of league policy that whistleblowers not be identified.</p>

In addition, Shockey said he has been contacted by multiple lawyers about
filing a lawsuit over the matter.</p>


“Is the league going to come down on their own people when someone does
something so wrong and outrageous?” Shockey said. “There should be a standard
for punishment, like getting suspended or fined or losing your job. If I say
something about officials, the league fines me.</p>


“This guy says something about me that’s not true and that he’s not supposed
to say and what happens? Nothing. You’d think they would have done something to
check it out. Heck, this guy [allegedly] hit a woman, got arrested and nothing
happened to him.”</p>


Sapp was investigated for domestic violence in February 2010 while covering
Super Bowl XLIV in Miami for the league-owned network. The charges were later
dropped.</p>


Nonetheless, Shockey said he feels he has been damaged by the situation.</p>

“I’m 31 years old and this is not good. People have asked if this is going to
hurt me in finding another team. I don’t know, but it’s not helping me,” said
Shockey who played for the Saints from 2008 to 2010 and scored the game-winning
touchdown in New Orleans’ Super Bowl victory."</p>

I have to say that I agree with Shockey on this issue. Sapp was dead wrong to have put Shockey in the crosshairs. This is a classic case of character assassination at its worst.

I have to agree with Jeremy Shockey on this issue too.

It is ridiculous when a degenerate criminal d-bag like Warren Sapp questions someone's character. I hope the NFL fires him from his job.

They'll have to do something to Sapp and I don't think an apology will be enough.

mr. shockey has been working on knocking himself out of the league when he started his hissy fit while he was still with us.

I agree with Shockey, the guy has a bad rep to begin with and now Sapp is calling him a rat which definitely has an effect on his career. Who the hell is Sapp to question anyone's character, guy should keep his mouth shut and I agree with the other posters in this thread saying an apology from Sapp isn't enough.

So anyone can simply lie about him and it's OK?

Shockey is in great position for a lawsuit

he probably did blow the whistle but the NFL will never be able to confirm or deny he did
Sapp is in deep hot water over this

Completely disagree with what Sapp did (he's an NFLN employee, correct?) and if so, NFL does need to discipline Sapp and Sapp should offer a public apology imo.</p>

However, imo this is the reason for this piece:</p>

"Nonetheless, Shockey said he feels he has been damaged by the situation.</p>“I’m 31 years old and this is not good. People have asked if this is going to
hurt me in finding another team. I don’t know, but it’s not helping me,”

He is trying to begin to establish he has been damaged. He doesn't have a chance at a remedy (like loss of future income and the associated $ amount) if that can't be proven. With his behavioral history, there is a buffet of reasons for teams to pass on him even without this incident. Rather interesting contrast since he has arguably "damaged" others in the past with his behavior and public comments. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
