ESPN Prepared To Make Tony Romo Highest-Paid Sportscaster In History

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming this would be for both ESPN and ABC, right? Because that level of investment only really makes sense if Disney is planning on bidding big for a piece of the Sunday afternoon rights which would presumably be on ABC rather than ESPN.

I think Romo has the talent and charisma to do this for a long time. This would go a long way towards solidifying his career in broadcasting.

One greater than a potential HOF football playing career...

On one hand, Romo absolutely deserves it, as he has single handedly established himself as the GOAT broadcast analyst in just a few short seasons.  

 

On the other hand, I want him to put up a big fat middle finger to ESPN and everything they stand for today, and take a huge dump in the booth without ever having broadcast a game in it.

 

Do the right thing Romo..

When Romo knows where the offense is going but the defensive coaches don't... that's good broadcasting.

Best case is that ESPN offers him a bunch of money and CBS matches it.

I hope this happens and they start to get better games. they should nab up kevin Harlan to pair up with Romo

I still have no clue why Jay Cutler doesn’t get in on this. He’s be perfect

Apparently he was quite lazy/unprepared a couple years ago when he tried to get into broadcasting. And then the Dolphins picked him up.

good for tony, i didn't realize how likeable of a guy he was until he got in the booth.

i didn't have any negative connotations with him before, i just didn't realize how much i liked him.

I find it hard to believe that a guy whose ashtray in his 2002 Ford Explorer is stuffed full of Camel Crush butts would be lazy or unprepared.

is he only calling NFL? If so, not a bad pay day for 5 months work :P

I don't know why many hate on Booger, I like his style, a bit different and all is good fwiw . Is Booger staying on that team as well?

Jim Nance will have to find another fellow pats fan to call games withxD. Maybe simms will return

Wait till Peyton's in the booth.  He'll be calling out offensive audibles being called before they even happen.

So basically... Romo is the new Frank Gifford.

Booger McFarland was asked about the possibility of Romo becoming the highest paid sportscaster in history and he said 'there's a chance he becomes the highest paid sportscaster in history.'

I have a good time listening to Booger. His PBP partner is a bad listen. 

Romo is fine. Hopefully he would get a different PBP guy than Booger.
