If you don’t think former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski had a bad temper, please raise your hand. Okay. If your hand is up, please put it down and NEVER claim to be a football fan ever again.
Complex shared a video where Romanowski was on an ESPN radio program in Los Angeles and he discussed having a locker room altercation with teammate Dexter Carter in regards to the Geno Smith situation. New York Jets quarterback Smith was punched in the face by former teammate IK Enemkpali on Tuesday and suffered a broken jaw and will miss the first half of the NFL season.
Okay, I knew Romanowski was a crazy dude, but a microwave? A freaking microwave? I mean, I guess Smith is lucky Enemkpali wasn’t crazy enough to do THAT.
It’s no secret that Romanowski had, and probably still has, a very short fuse. During his sixteen-year career in the NFL, he was involved in many altercations, both on and off the field and with both teammates and opponents.
When he played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1995, he once was ejected from a game for kicking Arizona Cardinals fullback Larry Centers in the head. He also was fined $42,000 in the 1999 season for three illegal hits and throwing a punch at Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez.
At least nobody got hurt. I guess Romanowski will go down as one of the craziest football players of all time. Maybe that is exactly what the NFL needs to spice things up.
Oh wait. They have Ndamukong Suh.
