Warren Sapp Randy Moss Was No Angel Hall of Fame Gonna Snub Him Too?

2/8/2017 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Warren Sapp is FURIOUS with Hall of Fame voters for snubbing Terrell Owens -- and says Randy Moss could be in serious trouble if candidates are being judged by off-the-field behavior.

Sapp -- a Hall of Famer himself -- says he's "up in arms" about the Owens situation because the guy is clearly one of the best WRs of all time ... along with Moss. 

But with Owens not getting enough H.O.F. votes for the 2nd year in a row, Sapp clearly believes he's being wrongly punished for his off-the-field antics.

Sapp warns, "What do we do next year when Randy Moss is standing there?"

Of course, Moss also had major off-the-field issues during his NFL career -- including a 2002 arrest for allegedly striking a cop with his car (he later pled guilty to misdemeanor traffic violations).

He also failed an NFL drug test and was fined multiple times for abusing the refs -- including the infamous water bottle incident in 2000, when he squirted water at an official and was fined $40,000.

He also allegedly went on the radio in 2010 and blasted his head coach, Jeff Fisher, while using a fake name. 

But Sapp says it shouldn't matter, they BOTH belong in Canton. 

"Hey, wake up voters! I don't know what the hell football ya'll been watching for the last 2 years but there's two receivers other than Jerry Rice that must be in the Hall of Fame and that's Randy Moss and T.O."

"Get it right!"

Terrell Owens Hall Of Fame Hops Throws Down Hammer In Celeb Game

2/7/2017 1:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It's clear T.O. isn't letting his Hall of Fame snub keep him down ... getting way, way, way up to snatch an alley-oop out of midair in a charity basketball game, and TMZ Sports has the jam on video.

Terrell Owens balled in the Gridiron Celebrity Hoops game in Texas over the Super Bowl weekend, and while guys like Daniel Gibson, Steve Francis and Trinidad James were there, Owens had the highlight.

Obviously, there's a firestorm of controversy surrounding T.O. right now, but it's good to see that at 43 he can still remind the entire world he's one of the greatest athletes ever.

NOW, PUT HIM IN THE DAMN HALL OF FAME.

Michael Vick Sorry, Bo Jackson Madden '04 Vick Is Video Game GOAT

2/7/2017 10:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Vick just started a barber shop debate for the ages ... telling TMZ Sports he thinks his Madden '04 character ... NOT Bo Jackson's Tecmo Bowl BEAST ... is the GOAT of video game football.

Vick came on the "TMZ Sports" TV Show (weeknights on FS1) and was asked who he thinks is the more ridiculous, unfair player to play between himself and Bo.

There's no easy answer ... Bo legendarily couldn't be tackled on Tecmo Bowl, while Vick had a FREAKIN' 94 SPEED RATING at QB, meaning the only way to stop him was to assault your opponent.

Mike puts all his faith in a familiar guy ... himself ... and gives some pretty good reasons why '04 Vick knows dominance better than Bo.

BTW -- If you use either player you're a hack.

Steve Sarkisian's latest run as a college coach is over after just 1 game ... 'cause the now ex-Alabama offensive coordinator is bolting Tuscaloosa for the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons just announced that Sarkisian -- who 'Bama hired to replace Lane Kiffin as coordinator back in December -- has accepted the team's vacant offensive coordinator position ... after Kyle Shanahan left to coach the 49ers.

Sark coached 'Bama in just 1 game ... the National Championship loss to Clemson.

BTW, just last week we saw Sark at LAX and asked him whether he'd ever be interested in the NFL.

Pats Hero James White NOT Getting Tom Brady's MVP Truck ... 'Cause It Doesn't Exist!

2/7/2017 8:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0207-tom-brady-james-white-GETTY-02Bad news for Patriots running back James White -- he's NOT getting Tom Brady's Super Bowl MVP truck ... because the Super Bowl MVP didn't get one this year! 

Of course, Brady DID get an MVP truck after Super Bowl 49 which he gave to Malcolm Butler -- back when Chevy was the Super Bowl MVP sponsor.

The QB told the media on Monday that he would give his Super Bowl 51 truck to James White -- who scored the winning TD -- but it turns out, there's no truck to give away. 

An NFL spokesman tells TMZ Sports, "[There is] no vehicle. We did not do it last year either."

So, if Tom still wants to give White a truck -- he'll have to do it with his own money. 

Julian Edelman Catch Was '70% Luck' Wasn't Sure It Would Count!

2/7/2017 7:45 AM PST
Breaking News

Julian Edelman says his Super Bowl miracle catch was more luck than skill -- and admits he wasn't even sure it was gonna count when the ref blew the whistle!!!

The New England Pats WR appeared on "The Tonight Show" with his coach, Bill Belichick, on Monday and, of course, they dissected the hell out of that insane 4th quarter game-saving catch. 

"It was probably 70% luck," a very bearded Edelman said ... admitting he tried to get Tom Brady to rush the next play so the refs couldn't review it!

Didn't matter ... it was as legit as it gets and Jimmy Fallon says the WR should use his newfound global catch fame to start a new business!

Dick Vermeil I'm Cool With T.O. Hall Snub He's Paying For Being Obnoxious

2/7/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dick Vermeil says Terrell Owens has one person to blame for being snubbed from the Hall of Fame again ... himself ... saying T.O. was "obnoxious" during his NFL career, and it's costing him.

We got Vermeil -- who won a Super Bowl with the Rams in 2000 -- at LAX and asked him about one of the hottest pro football topics of the day ... Terrell Owens once again being shut out of a bid for Canton.

Lots of NFL greats have said it's bogus not to vote T.O. in because of personal feelings, but when we asked Vermeil about the controversy his answer was simple ... you reap what you sow.

Savage.
