Tony Romo wanted to recreate a conversation about a Brady record and received all kinds of criticism.
The commentator and former player Tony Romo is in the eye of the storm after making some comments related to the model Gisele Bündchen, wife Tom Brady, during the game played on Sunday 24 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
It all happened when they were trying to track Brady’s 600th touchdown ball, which had come out very far, almost to the stands where the spectators were.
That day, Brady became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw 600 touchdowns in his career.
By mistake, the ball ended up in the hands of a fan wearing Mike Evans’ jersey number 13 who, ignoring the importance of the ball, gave it to the fan.

During the negotiations they entered into at the time to get the ball back, since it was practically a “trophy” for Brady:
Commentator Tony Romo came in and pretended to narrate the moment, trying to recreate the conversation between the momentary holder of the ball and the stadium staff.
Romo ‘imitated’ the fan, trying to ‘negotiate’ while the cameras captured the moment.
“A date with Gisele. A date with Gisele and I’m in, ”he said referring to the player’s supermodel couple.
According to Romo’s pantomime, the fan would ask Brady’s wife as a “trade” to return the ball.
He then began to imitate the representative of the ‘Bucs’ that he negotiated, answering to himself: “Okay, Tom will do it.”
In short, the fan did not go badly out of the incident, as he received a change of the ball, a shirt and helmet signed by Brady, another shirt signed by Evans, a coupon of a thousand dollars in the team store and double passes for this and the next season.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have not commented on the controversy unleashed by Romo.
