Dallas Cowboys’ Pro-Bowl Tight End Jason Witten also has a weekly sports talk show, much like Chris Cooley here at The Fan, and this week he took time to respond to Cooley’s statement last week that Tony Romo “choked.”
Witten joined BaD Radio on KTCK in Dallas and said “My granddad taught me when I was younger if you don’t have anything good to say don’t say anything at all. I probably shouldn’t say anything. I don’t get that one. I really don’t. Chris has been a good player for a long time. To get to that point I don’t see why that came up. Hey look you can’t worry about. Trust me. I know Tony doesn’t. That doesn’t affect him at all. It’s disappointing to see in some ways, but hey look it is part of the game and Chris has been a great player in this league for a long time. It’s disappointing to see him say that. That’s part of it.”
The hosts then asked Witten if he knew Cooley, “Yea we’ve hung out a few times and been to the Pro Bowl a couple of times together. He’s a nice guy and has a funny personality. Good guy. He’s been good for a long time, but that’s how it goes. It’s part of playing this game. You know that and you don’t allow it to affect you one way or another.“
Cooley’s comments last week with LaVar and Dukes made national headlines and helped reignite a rivalry that has cooled in recent years.
