Redskins tight end Chris Cooley joined The Mike Wise Show with Holden Kushner today to explain his comments from Monday in which he said he took pleasure in watching Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys blow a 24-point lead against the Detroit Lions.
Cooley said “I don’t consider it that I was talking trash about the type of player he is or who he is. All I was saying was that I enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys lose and I enjoyed the way they lost. That’s not saying he’s a bad player. I just enjoyed the performance.”
Cooley said he doesn’t root for other teams, he just doesn’t like to see division rivals win. “I would expect players of the Cowboys to want us to lose. I clearly expect Cowboy’s fan to want us to play poorly…It makes the game fun. It’s an entertainment business…It makes you root for your team. It makes you care about your players more. I think that’s what were here for.”
As a whole, Cooley thinks everything got blown way out of proportion and he was just having fun when he did the segment with “Lavar and Dukes” on Monday.
