By now most people have either seen or heard Deion Sanders' reaction to Tony Romo making a remark about his poor tackling from his days in the NFL.
Basically Marcus Peters of the Chiefs (another corner who doesn't like to hit) had a weak ass attempt to bring down Zeke Elliot of the Cowboys. It was embarrassing to see from an NFL athlete. Romo made a joke saying that Marcus Peters' tackling makes Deion Sanders look good.
I think most football fans would agree that it was no secret that Deion didn't like to hit. He once said that that's not what he gets paid to do before Super Bowl XXIX.
I'm not a get offended guy, I'm a call it like I see it guy, and to me Deion went a little overboard here. I mean, honestly, either way I don't really care too much about this topic I'm just talking as a rational adult. Deion Sanders has thin ass skin if he's gonna go that hard at Tony Romo over a harmless joke. A harmless remark that Sanders in the past has joked about as well. Romo basically tickled Deion Sanders, and Deion retaliated by shooting him in the face. What he basically did was the football version of saying "I hope your mom gets cancer as a comeback". Just no need for it. Just say one of those things man. We all know Romo was good, but also kind of a bum. No need to kick him while he's down. YOU WON BRO. You're in the Hall of Fame, you have two rings, everybody on earth would agree you had a better career than Tony Romo. It's not like he said you could've cover. It was a joke about how you didn't like to tackle. Which for the millionth time you've joked about before.
[He acknowledged he doesn't like to tackle.} "That's not what they pay me for," he said. "That's what linebackers are paid to do. Who likes to get hit? Who likes that? I like to break up passes and dance."
IMO It's a bad look for Deion, he says I've got a gold jacket that I didn't pay for (in reference to being a Hall of Famer), then act like it man, don't be such a bitch about a harmless remark that you too have poked fun at in the past. Thin city city, population Deion Sanders.
