Hall of Fame former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin doesn't like how Deion Sanders is handling his war-of-words with CBS' Tony Romo.
Romo made reference during a broadcast to Sanders' infamous poor tackling ability. Sanders fired back and blasted Romo over his career playoff record, his interceptions count and how he's never won in the big moment.
Here's what Irvin had to say, via the Dallas Morning News.
I didn't like that at all, man. I didn't like that last night. I saw it, I saw it. Here's the kicker for me. I love Tony, I talk with Tony all the time. I love Deion. But it's like, for so long Deion, you've made a living off telling people that my job is covering. Now when someone uses it within the framework of what you said ...
So when Tony used it and for him to come back that way yeah that's crazy. It's having fun, guys. You've gotta be able to laugh at yourself. I think we lose it with that. I tell people this all the time, I tell Steve [Smith] on TV, I tell people on TV all the time: nobody's tuning in to see your misery. Everybody's tunes in to get away from their misery, so don't give them misery. Let's have fun. Let's have this fun on this TV and try to help people get away from their situations. Let's not bring this mess on the air, and sometimes you kind of get away with it.
But yeah that was crazy. I didn't think comment Tony made was bad to be honest with you. And everybody says it, even Deion says it. So I don't know. It wasn't like he said he couldn't play. He just said hey that'd make Deion proud or something.
