NFL Star Jeremy Shockey

I Want an Apology

from the NFL Network

Jeremy Shockey is fuming mad that Warren Sapp labeled him as "the snitch" in the New Orleans Saints infamous "bounty scandal" -- and since Sapp called him out not the NFL Network, he wants an apology from Sapp and the league ... TMZ has learned.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has already come out and said that Sapp's report was "inaccurate," but we're told that's not enough for Shockey. Our sources say the tight end wants a formal retraction and apology from both Sapp and the NFL.

We're told Shockey has been meeting with legal and business advisors and has not ruled out taking legal action if Sapp and the league don't apologize. 

Our sources say Shockey could make a decision as early as this week.

The Saints are the biggest cheating bunch of woozy losers! May every athlete that participated in the bounty end up with a CAREER ending injury. AINTS AINT...even when CHEATING.

I would not even give them a choice those papers would have been filed quickly.Sapp had no proof of his statement knowing it could ruin someones character and went ahead with this.The NFL is just as gulity for letting him report this.

Apology? Sue Sapp and NFL network.....yesterday. Sapp is reprehensible and irresponsible. Ask for Sapp's termination as part of the deal.

1) Sapp called him out on twitter not the NFL network. 2) The NFL network scolded Sapp for this as he is not a reporter but an analyst guy.

I don't think it matters whether or not Shockey is a nice guy or an a**. The NFL Network let something go out about him that wasn't verified. That something could cost Shockey money down the road. That requires not only an apology, but a full retraction as well... whether the victim (Shockey) is saint or sinner.

shockey might be an arse for the things hes said and done in the past, but warren sapp is a freakin idiot for calling him out for doing the right thing and helping preserve the game that paid his way for how many years...
sapp has always runned his mouth, he once told a coach to suit up and get out on the field, on the other team!...if shockey did help the bounty scandal investigation then he should get props...screw sapps code of ethics, this isnt the 70s aka the guards vs the prisoners football...i dont think shockey should ask for an apology from sapp, he should call his fatt azz out and tell him to get in the octogon, settle this like men, instead acting like 2 b!zches standing in the middle of the street waving there fists at each other...personally they both need an azz kicking but more sapp than shockey
