Tony Romo has quietly established himself as one of the best color commentators in all of sports.
As such, most NFL fans were happy to see him on the broadcast for Sunday’s showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals.
Much in the same way the final outcome of that game ended in controversy due to clear cheating, Romo’s commentating also sparked a decent amount of outrage.
One moment, in particular, drew the ire of some NFL fans.

Did anyone hear @tonyromo slip up and almost say “n” word at 4:54 remaining in 4th quarter on Sunday, Jan 28, 2023. I can understand it because it’s really just locker room talk and he just got excited. pic.twitter.com/oJYUxb7COh

Obviously this isn’t the first time Romo has landed in the headlines for something like this. His joke about Tom Brady’s ex-wife, Gisele Bundchen, also caused some drama.
Prior to that, his commentating about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers rubbed some folks the wrong way.

But this is a different sort of controversy.
Will Romo or CBS ultimately come out and address what people believe occurred during that Chiefs-Bengals broadcast? Time will tell.
