would you go to a "voluntary" day of work at your job? i sure as hell wouldnt...

My job? No. My career? Dang right I'd go.

You don't get ahead in your career by doing just enough to get by.

Romo would much rather be a pro golfer.....he is probably debating hanging up the cleats. He probably despises Jerry Jones and is sick of playing with a team that is 1/4 filled with thugs.

25% of their 52 man roster is thugs? Can you name all 13 and tell me why you think they're thugs?

While we're speculating on people we really know nothing about... You got beat up in high school by football players. You probably hate anyone that is bigger than you with the skill sets to play the game. You never fit in with the football crowd. You're pompous... and I bet I am not far off the mark. Your attitude sucks... what a jerk. Doesn't make much sense to act like I know you when I don't, based on the small scope of your personality I have -- and yet you do it to others just because they're rich or play professional football. In all honestly I'm sure you probably like football at the college level but I'm not here to profile you or anything just make a point. In other news, I'm a little upset Romo didn't play but I'm sure he wouldn't have done that well anyways, regardless it's nice to see people get excited about golf and guys like Jerry Rice and Tony Romo get them excited... That is... Until they flop. Still a little confused as to why Jerry Rice didn't just take some time off and work harder -- the dude's work ethic screams for success in golf.

If you care about your job, or your career, you put in the time there first. Especially as a leader, like the quarterback has to be, you need to show your team that you're dedicated. When you're out there on the field, you need those guys to be behind you 100%. That means you show them the respect to be at every voluntary practice unless you have a really, really good reason to be somewhere else. Screwing around on the golf course, as much fun as it is, isn't going to fly.

If I were in the position to make the qualifier, I'd find a way to shuffle my responsibilities at work to make it happen. But you can't do that with a football team. You need the team to cohere, and for that you need the quarterback to do his job. If he missed it, as was said above, the press would have a field day tearing him down and questioning his commitment. And you know what? They'd be right to do so.

I agree, but Romo's legit though. Two under today put him in a playoff to advance to sectionals. Haven't heard if he made it or not yet.

He made it after a playoff, which he got called back for.

I guess the sport gods were watching out for him a little bit after his Monday decision.

If he had permission from the Dallas Cowboy management, then why not play? It looks like he will make his practice after all, but missing one day of wet nursing some rookies isnt going to hurt anything.

Tony is a very good golfer, and I hope he does well.

so, romo has a chance to qualify for the byron nelson, and one of the final qualifying rounds conflicts with a voluntary team workout. he chose to go to practice with the team.

I'm not a Boys fan, and for sure don't care to much for Romo (though I do think he's a decent QB) but I'm glad to see that he decided to go to the workout over the Tourney.......after all he gets paid for football and it sets an example to other teammates to follow.....good for him

This may have been said already, but he didn't have a choice. There isn't anything wrong with him trying to qualify, and I wish he could have played his round.

But if he would have, the backlash around these parts would have been unbearable for the regular sports fan, let alone Tony himself.

Romo absolutely did the right thing but going to OTA's and not the qualifier... The Dallas media would have barbequed his ass in molasses for skipping a "voluntary" OTA... Doubtful that missing a practice in May would lose a game for the Cowboys during the season but he's got to be the leader of the team and set an example... Dallas is a Cowboys town first and a sports town second... Romo is held to a higher standard than any other athlete in this town, any time the media gets a chance to get on his case they will do so.

Wow....sorry dude.

I actually walked on a major division 1 football school in the early 90's and still hold high school records (at my school) in the shot put and discus last time I checked a few years back. You are 20, I am 40...pro football has changed a lot over the past 20 years, I really don't watch it much anymore
