Golf, we'll its a life-time sport, not exactly improving your football game playing it.

I would think there is a far greater chance of hurting a knee dancing(happened to a couple of people on the show this season - so I heard O:-) ) than straining your neck golfing...I'm just sayin' Again, most players golf during the off-season

I guess the only difference is that Romo has been under intense scrutiny from the media and fans before about his committment to the team and football (Cabo and Jessica). Plus, he went into the last two offseasons with a lot of vocal haters on the boards and in the media.

Everyone expects the outrageous from Chad. Appearing on DWTS is actually kind of tame compared to what we expect from him. And noone has really regularly questioned his committment to excellence.

Injuries are different, you are at a greater chance working out, conditioning, and doing direct things to be in football shape than dancing...and we would scruntinize someone who got injuried in the weight room, unless they were doing something ignorant.

I don't see the problem. Is he supposed to play/practice/think football 24/7/365? That's silly. If he were skipping football related stuff to do it then sure it's inappropriate, but what he does in his spare time is his business.

I don't see the connection between competing for a US Open and skanking around with Jessica. If anything, this could help him prepare because of the intense concentration and patience it takes to golf at such a high level. Success in competive endeavors tends to carry over to the playing field. I remember reading stories about Princess Brett and how he was so competitive in every thing he did. Seemed like he did okay.

I don't see any need for him to change his life to appease some sensationalizing journalists who are making stories out of nothing. If there are people out there that want to believe that tabloid stuff relates to football, then he's probably not too concerned about what those people think. I know I wouldn't be.

And if the guy on the street corner with the "the end is near" sign strapped to his chest thinks him not repenting for his sins is affecting his football, then he's probably not going to do anything to appease him either.
