Romo opts not to escalate battle with NFL

Despite getting trolled, Twitter style, by the NFL after his Tuesday radio rant, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo chose not to escalate his war of words with the NFL over the forced cancellation of the fantasy football convention Romo had organized.

Via Clarence E. Hill, Jr., of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Romo declined to elaborate on his comments from Tuesday.

“I talked about it yesterday, I think I don’t need to go into much more detail,” Romo said. “I’m sure all the rumors and things that are thrown out there. . . . I said everything I was going to say. I said what I thought.”

Romo also said he was aware of the “Hi Tony!” tweet that appeared for less than 10 minutes on the league’s official Twitter page after Romo’s remarks to Colin Cowherd of ESPN Radio.

"[S]omeone showed me about it,” Romo said. “Obviously when someone takes it down after nine minutes, it tells you probably all you need to know.”

Hill points out that Romo wore a blue hat bearing the NFL logo during his post-practice media availability. It’s currently unknown whether he sent any subtle messages while speaking, like scratching the logo of the hat with his middle finger.
