Tony Romo gives up golf to save his back 


Not sure if this is a re-post................





Tony Romo has given up golf to save his back

Golf isn’t Tony Romo’s game anymore.

Romo was once a good enough golfer that he won amateur tournaments and came close to qualifying for the U.S. Open, but Romo says that his offseason back surgeries the last two years have caused him to give up on the sport.

It’s been awhile,” Romo told the Dallas Morning News of his golf hiatus. “Almost a year and a half.”

Romo said he doesn’t view forsaking golf as a sacrifice, just as something he wants to do to become the best Cowboys quarterback he can be.

“You’ve got to get yourself healthy then figure out where you’re at and go from there for everything,’’ Romo said. “It’s not just golf. It’s a way you live life. I don’t think about it as [giving up] golf. It’s just life. You want to give yourself the best chance to succeed on the football field.”

If success on the football field means time off from the golf course, that’s a trade-off the Cowboys will be glad to see Romo make

Golf was never really a problem in his football game, other than him fielding questions from the simple-minded media trying to stir up controversy.

Now that affects his back, no one should be surprised that he gave it up. I am sure he will be able to return to it and the football field soon.

Maybe obesemo should give up the donuts. Romo is obese with a BMI of 30.3. It is ok to have a BMI above the normal range if you are muscular but clearly Romo is not.



Those look like B cups. doh.gif

Please enlighten us, with what scale you came about this BMI from. Explain in detail with supporting links.

It doesn't look like he mentioned his back at all.
It feels so good to be back!

I can tell you exactly what he did.  He plugged in Romo's height and weight into one of those simplistic online "BMI Calculators" and it spit out a number.  No kidding, those are the ONLY pieces of information used.  Muscle mass?  Irrelevant.  Body fat percentage?  Irrelevant.  And if for some odd reason, you doubt the accuracy of such a complicated calculation, bear in mind that when I put in my information, it told me that based solely on my height, I need to weigh slightly less than I did when I was 12 in order to have what they consider a "normal" BMI.  At that weight, I'd look a little bit like Manute Bol's thinner brother.

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!!!

the haters seem to get more irrational by the day.  Frankly they are pretty bad psychologically to begin with but their hatred of Tony pushes them over the edge.

Are you sure Romo isn't "muscular" just by his pictures?

I guarantee romo is far stronger than the average man.

No joke... taking the BMI charts at face value is beyond retarded...  Back when I played football and was literally working out 2-3 times 5-6 times a week year round.... the BMI charts said I needed to lose 60 pounds to be "normal"... problem is I didn't have 60 pounds to lose... I literally could have had 0% body fat and still had a way to go...

That said I don't know why we bother arguing with someone who has a lower IQ number than Romo's BMI index number.

I'm , 6'2 230 myself but even at 45 I am way more muscular than Romo. How he gets around with that much body fat, I have no clue. He could stand to lose 20 lbs and put it back on clean. He's a great QB but he could stand to get a little more fit. It would probably help his game even more.

By the way, just in case you were wondering, according to the very same BMI Calculator, Tyron Smith (this guy):



has a BMI of 37.7, which makes him morbidly obese.  And Demarco Murray (this guy):



has a BMI of 29.9 (which is considered WAY overweight--anything over 30 is considered obese).  And Dez Bryant (this guy):



has a BMI of 28.5, which makes him way overweight too.

But leave it to a Romo hater to cite this paragon of accuracy in order to pile just a bit more hate on the QB of his "favorite team."  Geez, talk about an agenda.  If you look at this guy's prior 10 posts, he's a perfect 10-for-10.  All 10 of them are Romo hate posts, even in threads that have nothing to do with Romo.  What's the definition of "troll" again?

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!!!

Yes. Notice how I said it is ok to have a BMI above the normal range if you are muscular(ie have a low body fat percentage). Smith, Murray, and Dez clearly have significant lean muscle mass. Romo looks like a 9-5 average joe with a desk job.

Maybe we'd have more success if we had a QB who looked like this guy.

Are you seriously going to argue that Romo has a low body fat percentage and has significant lean muscle mass? You need to get your vision checked asap. The average BMI for an adult American male is 28.6 so subjectively Romo appears to be about "normal" but the reality is "normal" for an adult American male is in fact overweight.

Tony Romo is a professional athlete with a 100+ million dollar contract. He should make sure he is doing every thing that he can to earn every cent of that contract. Losing weight is a huge asset. Look at Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobiili. They shed some pounds which helped them to stay healthy and play well at an old age.

Romo groupies are delusional. Romo should take notes from Tim Duncan. Duncan took a pay cut so the Spurs front office could surround him with better players. Duncan also shed weight to improve his health as well as his play on the court. Romo groupies complain about Romo not having good enough teammates well why not take a pay cut like Duncan? Romo's mobility has significantly declined and his major asset is making plays outside the pocket. Wouldn't shedding a few pounds improve Romo's health and mobility?
