Warren Sapp Says Richie Incognito Once Called Him a "N****r" During a Game
It's beginning to look like Richie Incognito's use of racial slurs was habitual. Warren Sapp, the former Miami Hurricanes great, faced Incognito only once in his NFL career but says that during that game, Incognito called him the N-word while on the field.
Sapp, however, didn't seem particularly offended by it, but adds he would have been if the incident had happened off the field.
Sapp recalled the incident on The Dan Patrick Show this morning.
"One time he kicks me in a game and calls me the N-word," Sapp said. "I looked at him and said, 'Oh, you want me to punch you in the mouth so they kick me out of the game?'
"I looked at him and said, 'Really? That's all you got?'" Sapp continued.
Patrick asked Sapp to clarify about a white man using the term, and Sapp said he understands it was a cheap insult used in a football game but would be offended if it was used in the locker room.
"He only wants to get me kicked out. He don't want to fight. Because the only thing he got to do is call me after the football game, just come over to the locker room and say it after the game. Now we've got a real situation."
