Jim Nantz viral for Christmas sweater during Rams-Broncos broadcast

One of the NFL’s greatest, if not the best, TV teams is Tony Romo and Jim Nantz. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback has earned a reputation as one of the sport’s most dependable analysts because to his natural ability to predict plays before they happen and his passionate fan comments. Fans weren’t very happy with his Christmas Day attire, though.

Romo showed up at SoFi Stadium’s commentary booth and embraced the holiday spirit. He and Nantz ditched their suits and donned ugly Christmas-themed sweaters for the Los Angeles Rams-Denver Broncos game, and fans railed at the duo on social media for their bold choice. 

How much does Tony Romo make?

Some fans have expressed sympathy for Tony Romo and Jim Nantz having to televise a four-hit game between the two teams this season.

However, the former NFL player receives a nice salary for working the booth. Tony Romo earns $18 million per season and has a 10-year contract with CBS. According to reports, his co-star Jim Nantz earns $10.5 million annually, making the pair the most expensive sports commentary combination ever. On the list of NFL analysts with the highest salaries, Mike Tirico, Joe Buck, and Troy Aikman are placed third, second, and first, respectively, behind Romo and Nantz. Romo and Nantz have the enthusiasm and drive to liven up a dull game, even though it may seem like a waste of their abilities to have them broadcast it on Christmas Day. However, they will try to thrill spectators as Baker Mayfield and Russell Wilson compete to help their teams’ records rise to 5-10. Although none of the quarterbacks has had a memorable season, they, too, must win this game, just like Romo and Nantz did.

Who is Tony Romo?

Antonio Ramiro Romo, an American sportscaster and former American football quarterback who spent 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League (NFL), was born on April 21, 1980. He participated in collegiate football at Eastern Illinois, where he helped his team win the Ohio Valley Conference title in 2001 and the Walter Payton Award the following year. In 2003, Romo joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent. From 2006 through 2015, Romo served as the Cowboys’ regular starter after beginning his career as a backup. During his tenure, he guided the Cowboys to four postseason appearances and earned Pro Bowl accolades each time they reached the postseason. After the 2016 season, Romo made the decision to retire after a back issue during the preseason cost him the starting job to Dak Prescott. When he retired, CBS Sports recruited him to work as the senior colour analyst for its NFL television broadcasts.
