Warren Sapp was guilty of accusing Jeremy Shockey of being the informant in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal.

Now, he'll be the one handing out the verdicts.

No, he's not a real judge, but oddly enough it would appear that he'll be playing one on television, in an odd show likely to be called "Judge Sapp."

Creative, I know. And a career low for Sapp because, honestly, courtroom gimmick shows are pretty much the lowest stoop before you descend straight into the hell created by shows like Jersey Shore.

The evidence to support the existence of this strange show is out there in droves. For one, he could use the money since he declared for bankruptcy and is unlikely to see his contract renewed at the NFL Network in August.

So we clearly have a motive.

I'd now like to turn your attention to two pieces of information gathered from Twitter.

Exhibit A:

This tweet can also be backed up by this link, which clearly shows a live audience was being paid $50 to attend the proceedings.

Exhibit B:

The evidence is right there in front of you, folks—Sapp is actually doing this. I know you're confused by this, perhaps even upset he would do something so corny, but it's happening.

And it's bad.

But money talks, and given the very public nature of Sapp's financial woes, I think it's pretty safe to say this was a business decision he couldn't afford to turn down. In that regard, I'll try to keep the schadenfreude to a minimum.

Nonetheless, I have no choice but to ask that Mr. Sapp be convicted of crimes against intellectual programming everywhere with this cornball television show.

May God bless his soul.
