The announcers on the XFL are brutally honest and entertaining, making for an exciting broadcast. While former NFL quarterback Tony Romo may be enjoying some downtime, these announcers were not holding back during the games.
On Sunday, the St. Louis Battlehawks and San Antonio Brahmas faced each other. In the first quarter, kicker John Parker Romo kicked a field goal to give his team a 3-0 lead. However, during the broadcast, the focus somehow shifted to the Dallas Cowboys and their former quarterback, Tony Romo.
“You’ve got a Romo playing football in Texas in February,” Barrie joked.
Announcer Matt Barrie couldn’t resist making a playful connection between the Cowboys, Romo, and a “Romo” playing football in February. Tony Romo, the retired QB now CBS announcer was known for his poor post-season play.
These XFL announcers are savage. Tony Romo is probably relaxing somewhere, meanwhile this is happening on the broadcast. pic.twitter.com/sRntmn9Eb4

Romo continues to catch strays, earlier this year he was criticized for his post season announcing as well.
Tony Romo quickly became a popular analyst upon joining CBS, but his popularity declined after some NFL fans were dissatisfied with his commentary during the Bengals vs. Chiefs game on Sunday night.
The main complaint is that he talks excessively.
Romo smoothly transitioned from the football field to broadcasting, resulting in success for the ex-Cowboys quarterback. After retiring from Dallas in 2017, he joined CBS as the lead color analyst the following year. He demonstrated a talent for in-game analysis, earning accolades for his energetic commentary alongside Jim Nantz and his extensive NFL knowledge gained from his 14-year career.
Maybe people should direct their hate towards their losing team or job they have to work tomorrow, not Tony Romo.
