Criticism of Tony Romo’s broadcast this season has been a hot topic, especially his last playoff game for CBS, calling the Kansas City Chiefs’ win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
While Romo was once considered the next best color commentator in the NFL, this season has seen some discontent from fans, who say he’s stating the obvious more than usual, among other things.
Romo has also been admitting on air that he doesn’t understand what really happened on certain plays, which is the last thing an analyst should say.

But, speaking with BroBible, Romo opened up about how he can’t please everyone at the end of the day.
«You’re always trying to do the right thing. In essence, more people now want to tell me how they think I’m doing. I have people coming up to me on the street a lot more than I did the first time.» a couple of years,» she said.
Romo broke off those conversations.

«At first they were mostly telling me how much they love listening to me and all these positives, so it’s fun,» he began. «When you’re young and you come out and you’re good, then you’re dealing with more expectations. You find that some people don’t like you and some people want you to do things differently and do this and that instead.» You have to stay true to who you are.
«You can’t please everyone. I know this because the number of people who reach out to me has quadrupled since the first two or three years. The thing is, the people who really love you aren’t going to keep going out of their way to say , «I love you.» They’re not going to keep tweeting, ‘He’s the best,’ every week, are they? So, that goes away, and then you hear more negative stuff, but that’s just noise.»
A report surfaced last week that CBS executives met with Romo multiple times over the past offseason to try to recapture his mojo in the booth with play-by-play partner Jim Nantz during broadcasts.
CBS Sports President Sean McManus and top NFL game producer Jim Rikhoff reportedly flew to Romo’s Dallas home along with Nantz.

Romo entered the CBS booth in 2017 with a 10-year contract worth $180 million. He instantly became a fan favorite with his ability to accurately call plays before they occurred and sounding like a true fan of the game on the mic.
The Post added that CBS officials will meet again to see how they can address the issues with the Nantz-Romo team since the «intervention» did not produce the results they would have liked this season.
