Look....in public I would have good manors and not mention anything (unless I was one of his close friends looking out for him) and I really don't want to come off snobby here but...I have to point this out. Is Romo serious with leaving that tag on his jacket sleeve???????!!!!!!!! nevermind the cheese suit jacket/jeans look from 1999.....someone could have helped him out here. as most of us know a lot of athlete's wardbrobes are tragic and they need help but yikes. this is suit jacket 101 here. obviously he did not take a trip to a tailor.

Anyways i guess this leads into my main point of this post....when are we going to start seeing athlete's dress like respectable gentleman again?? Anyone like the way any athlete's dress?

What can you expect from a man that won't play with a broken pinky while his team goes into the toilet.

ROOOOOMMMMOOOOOO!!!!

Worse than the players is the announcers and commentators. 3 Button suit no matter how fat and old you are. Crappy pocket square from the same material as your lame ass tie. Followed up with a knot that was tied blindfolded by their ass cheeks. This has been bothering me for a while thanks for the post.

I'm confused. Who is this person? Why do we care that he can't dress?

He is the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. So you may not care but it is just an open discussion regarding athletes and how they dress.

LOL wow. I couldn't agree with you more but the announcers are so bad they are in a whole other realm all together...we should save them for another thread.

Last season when doing these NBA games, Magic Johnson had tags on his sleeve a couple times.
That's some sad sh*t!

Also, very few show any of the shirt's cuff.

Here is what I don't understand about the announcers. They make their livings from bieng on TV. They wear makeup and have wardrobe people, I presume. What asstastic wardrope person picks that garbage out? Do they higher some other old athlete to pick their trash out? Do network televisons let these clowns pick out their own clothes or do they pay someone to pick them out for the announcers?

The NBA just leaves me speechless. I don't know if we can even classify their suits as suits...they are more like parachutes sewn together.

every saturday and sunday I wonder the same thing dude. i'm already over how bad their clothing is...I am like you...i am more intrigued by who let them out of the house.

I'd say one guy who actually somewhat gets it right now is Jesse Palmer. Disregarding his neckties are sometimes too short.

I see. That wasn't clear. I thought maybe Romo was a tailor. Carry on.

Maybe it's urban hip. You know, like when guys would leave their tags on their baseball caps. Absolutely ridiculous looking, but was the "in" thing.

He looks like he's been hanging around with Joe Simpson too much.

You can't expect style, discernment, or anything like that from a lowly Cowpoke. Or even flair: that's what Clinton Portis is for!
