Shannon Sharpe was absent from his daily FS1 show Undisputed on Tuesday, which was the day after the frightening medical situation with Bills safety Damar Hamlin unfolded and caused the postponement of game between the Bills and Bengals.
Sharpe’s absence was also notable since it also came after co-host Skip Bayless caught major heat for a disturbing tweet about the Hamlin situation.
In his Wednesday morning return to the air, Sharpe addressed Hamlin and that tweet, but he found himself being cut off by Bayless. It led to them repeatedly cutting each other off before begrudgingly moving forward with the program.
According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, sources have claimed the relationship between Bayless and Sharpe has deteriorated to an “all-time low.”
Bayless and Sharpe have had multiple blow-ups on camera, with one of the other viral ones being Bayless taking “personal shots” by disrespecting his NFL playing career. Just as notable was Sharpe liking a tweet from Charles Woodson that read “Undisputed is unwatchable without Shannon Sharpe.”
On Monday night, Hamlin collapsed on the field, Bayless tweeted, “No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game – but how? This late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome … which suddenly seems so irrelevant.”
“Nothing is more important than that young man’s health. That was the point of my last tweet,” said Bayless in a follow-up tweet nearly an hour later. “I’m sorry if that was misunderstood but his health is all that matters. Again, everything else is irrelevant. I prayed for him & will continue to.”
All of this could be for TV, or it could be serious. At this point, we are not sure. I guess time will tell.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
