    It's not uncommon at all and sometimes even meant to be endearing. ...certainly not meant to be disrespectful.

    Who knows what really took place.

    You do not know how to manage money, and you look to others to suck up the debt you made. And you are not an adult.

    this isn't a character flaw

    if that's how you feel, fine. Would actually mean something if you were in a financial situation that you couldn't escape, but chose not to file, but that's nice

    Managing money is an ability, which would be character. Spin it how you want. They guy works at NFL network, making decent money I suspect. Sorry if you do not show sympathy for a multimillionaire who "needed" to file while probably making at least $100,000k if not more at NFL network.

    So what does an inability to run a 4.3 40 say about someone's character?

    I don't have sympathy for him, I just don't agree filing bankruptcy says anything about anyone's character

    Who do you think pays for the debts of someone who files? Let me guess, you filed?

    I can agree with that. Those cases can go either way really. Some take advantage of filing to get out of debt who don't really need to(maybe lack of character) and some have to out of necessity(not lack of character) due to various reasons such as:
    1. injury resulting in loss of work
    2. Bad divorces where one party can not recover
    3. Losing a nice job and having to get a minimal paying one while bills catch up
    4. Tax problems arising to any of the above where late fees, not filing fees, etc keep on racking up and they never go away.

    I have a friend who got behind in taxes due to a divorce where her husband refused to file or even acknowledge the IRS. She got stuck with most of it near 100k in debt. She is on a payment plan paying $700 a month and has been for two years. Know where her current balance stands? 118k because the fees keep piling up even though she/they agreed to a plan. Sometimes there is no way out unless a lottery is won and they will not take a settlement....at this time.

    In Warren Sapp's case, I do think he abused the system, he has made plenty of money to avoid filing for bankruptcy if he handled his money correctly....that is irresponsible and does show some lack of character :D

    His claim was that the waitress called them 'boys.' That's not bad service. He's a notorious jerk and was looking to find any excuse to not tip her. I've seen it happen all of the time with people. He has zero class and I'm glad he's broke. Apparently, boys don't pay their bills and get foreclosed on, too.

    We all know there's no possible way she could've used the word "boys" in a condescending tone right? /Sarcasm

    If you were there and seen this great waitress get shafted, why didn't you just tip her yourself? Because your talking as if you were sitting across from Sapp and seen the whole encounter with your two eyes. Sapp may be a jerk, but I also know there are plenty of terrible waiters that deserve no tip, and rightfully so. As for him being broke, I'd be willing to bet he's better off financially then 99% of the people here.

    I live in Orlando. Sapp is from Apopka, an Orlando suburb. He's been know to do this plenty of times before and is known as one of the biggest jerks there is. I never said that there are servers that don't deserve a tip. It's just that Sapp has a history of this and I doubt he's just unlucky and getting all of these bad servers waiting on his table.

    He's low class. And he should be better off financially than EVERYBODY here. He made tens of millions of dollars. Yet, he was foreclosed on and filed for bankruptcy. Yet, he owed lots of people a lot of money that they will never see. That's not what I would call a definition of 'success.' And it's no surprise he couldn't tip the waitress, he's a low life that owes more money to other people and companies, so why not stiff a waitress?

    Twitter quote (from Sapp):

    I hate Sapp more than anyone in this thread, but if the service was bad then the server doesn't deserve a tip. PERIOD.

    I guess I can see why you have such a strong opinion against him then. That's honestly how most of these football players are, or at least the majority of them. Of course there's some great ones who constantly help out with their community, but for the most part they're no role models (putting it lightly).

    True, but I can promise you that 99% of the servers across America will give their absolute best service to any celebrity hoping for that big tip! Even if this girl didn't know who he was, someone told her ahead of time.

    No server in their right mind would give horrible service in that situation. Now, other reasons could be behind the bad service such as slow kitchen, bad food, whatever yet that is entirely a different discussion.

    I really didn't need to read this story to know that Warren Sapp is an idiot.

    Exactly. "Boy" was and still is a racial epithet or slur, but Warren Sapp is dead wrong on this.

    He's known for being a cheapskate. When I was in high school, one of the vendors that worked with my job (I worked at a youth sports organization) was a multi-invite camp leg as a punter with Tampa. The things he said about Sapp...lol.

    trickblue is absolutely right. Sapp is a boor.

    "Boy" can be used in a way to demean black males, but I doubt this was the intent of the server.
