Sports analyst Greg Anthony was suspended indefinitely by CBS Sports and Turner Sports after his arrest for soliciting a prostitute last month.
Working girls pinch their pennies every year so they can buy a bus or plane ticket to the Super Bowl host city. For many sex workers, the money they make working the Super Bowl is more than many of us earn in a year's salary. But also working the crowds at the Super Bowl are vice cops whose only job is to arrest hookers and their johns.
UPDATE: The NFL Network terminated Warren Sapp for soliciting a hooker after the Super Bowl in Phoenix, AZ.
“Warren Sapp’s contract has been terminated and he no longer works for NFL Network,” said a statement from the NFL Network's spokesman.
The NY Post reports Sapp and a prostitute were fighting over money she said he owed her. The fright spilled out into the hallway at a 4-star hotel and the police were called to break the fight up.
In addition to the solicitation charges, Sapp was also charged with assault.
