Skip Bayless Twitter: His co-host, Shannon Sharpe is not satisfied.
The former NFL player and Skip Bayless got into a fight on Tuesday night’s “Undisputed” because of the commentator’s contentious tweet about Damar Hamlin.
During a game this week, a Buffalo Bills player suffered a heart arrest and collapsed on the field. Bayless tweeted, “No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game – but how? A game of this importance at this point in the season is essential to the outcome of the regular season, which now seems so unimportant.
In response to criticism of the tweet, Bayless issued a mea culpa, saying, “That young man’s health is the most important thing. My previous tweet made a point about that. I apologize if anything was misinterpreted, but his health is the only thing that counts.
But the next day, Sharpe skipped their show, and when he showed up on Tuesday night, he tried to explain why, which sparked an argument with his co-host.
In response to questions about why she wasn’t on television Tuesday, Sharpe said, “There’s been a lot of speculation. I won’t get into speculation, rumor, or innuendo, but I will say this: In watching that game on Monday night, what happened to Damar Hamlin struck me as a bit strange.
Then Bayless interrupted him, saying, “Timeout, timeout, I’m not going to take it down, because I stand by what I tweeted.” He continued, “Skip tweeted something, and although I disagreed with the tweet, and hopefully Skip will take it down, I didn’t want yesterday—”
Sharpe answered, evidently angry, “I cannot even get through a monologue without you interrupting me.” You could have returned, but I was just going to say, “Skip, Skip, I was just gonna say, Skip: I didn’t want yesterday to turn into a Damar Hamlin issue. We ought to have been discussing him instead of your tweet. That’s what I intended to accomplish. But you won’t even allow me to finish my introduction without interjecting.
No one in the room had an issue with the tweet, so I thought you weren’t going to bring it up,” Bayless told him.
Sharpe responded, “No — obviously the bosses wanted you to offer an explanation, so obviously, someone had a problem—.”
Shannon Sharpe isn’t afraid to make subtle Twitter jabs at his longtime co-host Skip Bayless Twitter as he gets ready to leave FS1’s Undisputed. While the real reason for Sharpe’s departure from Undisputed is still unknown, he has left hints by liking tweets about his failing friendship with Bayless. But Sharpe took his spat with Bayless to a whole new level on Thursday night with just one Twitter-like.
“In my opinion, Skip Bayless has outgrown Shannon Sharpe. He is much more advanced. He has a tremendous future ahead of him. Meanwhile, Bayless will not be able to locate a new companion. Because he is a piece of s**t, his career will tank.
Sharpe liked the tweet where the person labeled Bayless a “piece of s**’t.” The NFL Hall of Famer may not have spoken a word on his Undisputed departure just yet, but he definitely has said a lot nonetheless.
Undisputed reason Shannon Sharpe is quitting
According to the New York Post, Sharpe reportedly signed a buyout agreement with FS1, and his final broadcast is anticipated to run following the end of the NBA Finals.
The “Club Shay Shay” podcast from Sharpe will also be leaving FS1.
According to The Post, there was a lot of public tension when Sharpe objected to a tweet that Bayless had sent shortly after Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin passed out on the field.
When Bayless returned to the program the following day, Sharpe, who did not appear on Undisputed that day, begged him to delete the tweet, but Bayless refused while interrupting his co-host.
The Post also highlights Sharpe’s willingness to treat Bayless on Undisputed more equally, particularly when it came to selecting the show’s topics.
These and other potential motives for Sharpe’s departure exist.
It is evident from the reports and Sharpe’s Twitter followers that he no longer has much respect for the colleague he has had for the previous seven years.
Tuesday marked the conclusion of the Hall of Fame tight end’s hosting duties for the well-liked FS1 morning show. Since September 2016, he has co-hosted “Undisputed” with co-host Skip Bayless.
Tuesday, Sharpe announced, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is officially my last day at work.” “After seven years, the train comes to a stop right here with Shannon Sharpe and ‘Undisputed,'”
Less than two weeks ago, the New York Post claimed that Sharpe had negotiated a buyout agreement with Fox Sports to end his show and that his final broadcast would take place during the NBA Finals. Sharpe has now announced his resignation.
‘Forever indebted to Skip Bayless is Shannon Sharpe
Sharpe expressed his gratitude to Fox Sports and other parties for the opportunity to host the program before bidding Bayless a tearful farewell.
Shannon Sharpe was “a worthy opponent,” according to Skip Bayless Twitter.
When talking about their experience on the show, Bayless also broke down in tears and thanked Sharpe for taking a risk on him despite the initial backlash the show received.
“We had a completely different format in mind when I initially started working here in June of 2016. When it became apparent that Shannon Sharpe was free, I said I thought he could handle it, and did you ever,” Bayless remarked. “I want to express my gratitude for your commitment to this work. This show is a ravenous beast. You gave your all to this work, just as you did for Hall of Famer in professional football, day in and day out.
“I want to thank you for never missing work due to illness. I want to thank you for working as hard as you could on each and every topic’s preparation. The biggest tribute I can pay you is that you were a worthy opponent, therefore I want to thank you for competing for as long as you did with me.
The most heated arguments between them involved LeBron James’ claim to be the greatest NBA player of all time and Bayless’ Cowboys, among other topics.
