Updated: Michael Strahan and Warren Sapp trade jabs over Hall of Fame

Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan decided to hang it up at the same time.

The endgame  is that they both ended up eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the 2013 class.

Both are deserving yet observers that note  the route that the voters tend to take felt that this one was unusually Strahan friendly.

So much so that many concluded that Strahan  was a first ballot entry without question.

The odds on two defensive linemen getting yellow jackets in a class of five that also included two shoe-in offensive linemen, were slim to say the least.

Strahan has more sacks, rode out on the back of a Super Bowl victory over the almost-perfect edition of the New England Patriots and he has maintained a bucketful of crossover media appeal since he left the game.

Strahan’s resume may have been too perfect because as we know now Sapp got in and Strahan did not.

That did not stop Sapp from commenting on the fact that he felt just like everyone else did.

Sapp told WDAE-AM 620, why he felt that way before he was called up to Canton, Ohio.

“Say if I rewind this to Saturday at 12 o’clock me and you are sitting and I say, ‘It breaks down whatever and whatever and then you have Michael Strahan and me. C’mon, the menace and the media darling,’” Sapp said. “C’mon. Madness, or Good Morning America? I mean, c’mon.”

Strahan took it to Twitter to display that he took the comments as a diss.

Update: The barbs continued after the initial posting of this story.

In the middle of all of this stood two tweets that Sapp deleted.

“You don’t need to take a shot at me. u got my #!”

Sapp also tweeted “Tell Us Why You Really Mad Son?”

Most took it as Sapp being…Sapp.

As my grandmother used to say’ he plays too much.’

Is Strahan being too sensitive ?

Sound off.
