During the Chiefs vs Bengals game, veteran Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo almost used a racial slur and social media just could not believe it with video of him on the cusp of saying the n word viral
It’s just a normal day in America.
The NFL is the most entertaining sports programme in the United States; occasionally, it even surpasses Hollywood in terms of creating odd dark humour, and to be honest, the broadcasters are also in a tight race.
We have grown accustomed to watching strange actions or stunts performed by players on the field or coaches on the sidelines, but commentators also frequently use their voices or word choices to amuse the audience. Undoubtedly, the games would be monotonous and boring without them. Al Michaels’ antics were previously spotted last year, and now Tony Romeo, a well-known broadcaster, nearly scandalously made news last night.

What did Tony Romo say?
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals were two titans in the AFC championship game. Tony, who was covering the game for CBS from the broadcast booth, came dangerously close to making a racial slur. He continued to remark, “Right there, you got three ni…” throughout the play.

The incident happened so swiftly that some observers almost missed the slur as Romo hastily checked himself, but it did occur.
Social media is not holding back.
No pundit would typically scream the “N” word on live television, but Romo’s error has already caused some internet users to scratch their heads. Why on earth would that term even cross the former professional’s head at that specific moment? He must have been overjoyed.
Tony developed a sizable fan base throughout his time as a commentator. He has been praised by other media, well-known journalists, and seasoned critics since he is typically regarded as an entertainer. He never would have taken such a drastic and unacceptable move.
Before working for the TV network, he spent 11 NFL seasons as the Dallas Cowboys’ standout quarterback. He played football and was a four-time Pro Bowler. In 2014, he led the NFL in passing rating.
