Not to say that I'm a conspiracy theorist or anything, but this Tony Romo situation has me skeptical we aren't being lied to. I watched so little NFL news during the offseason, but I do recall an interview with Romo in which he sounded confident, overly confident, to the point that he actually sounded like a leader. Everyone was backing him too, like it's a new team. Then he blows their first game in typical Romo style, and everyone, including his teammates begin doubting him again. Now what does the franchise do to save face, and get that momentum back?
Hold the presses, week two, Tony Romo plays with a broken rib AND a collapsed lung. What a stud. All the sudden everyone is talking about how courageous he is. Wow, he is so tough playing through those injuries, AND, he's going to play through those injuries for the rest of the season. His teammates support him again. Everything is good again, as long as he can handle the pain. I'm calling it now, he won't miss any time, but you will see him crying like he's about to die every time he makes a mistake, grimacing in pain.
I think it's rather ironic this article appears on espn.com tonight. No, they didn't mention Romo at all, but it does beg the question, how much of a competitive advantage can you gain by faking an injury. I think I mapped it out pretty clear above.
I pay as little attention as possible to Tony Romo and the Cowboys, especially in the off season, so I don't recall this confident sounding Romo. But that article was definitely coming. If you saw that Monday night game you could tell that flop was as flagrant as can be. Stopping the clock without using a timeout to get the Giants goal line defense out. Pure and simple.
Although I do enjoy a good conspiracy theory, and applaud your branding the coincidence as ironic in an attempt to add weight to your claims. Your attempt to tarnish Romo in the eyes of the Unofficial Sasquatch Message Board, due to injury faking, shall be out shined this week by Deon Grant. . . And whoever that other dude was that fell down at the same time until he realized that someone else had beat him to it.
Thanks for renaming my Seattle specific sports thread by the way. No need to worry, Mariners thread soon to follow.

Hi Topspin. Don't worry dude, I don't get me sometimes either.
I thought I saw you in the Mastodon pit at the Gorge, since I was on the lookout for a Mariners hat. However, the dude I saw was shirtless, wearing baggy pants, and his hat was one of those overly gaudy type hats with multiple colors, and he was wearing it crooked. I decided it wasn't you, since my mental image of you doesn't include you being a total douchebag.
No, that wasn't me you saw. The hat I was wearing was the on field one with the stickers removed and a shaped bill. Plus I was still drinking at that time. That was for sure the drunkest I'd ever been at the Gorge. I was with a friend who had never been and we definitely made the most of it. Great fucking show though.
