Yep, bet that went over well.
The talentless Simms family member went on. Blaming CBS for how it told Phil Tony Romo was taking over.
“I had to tell my dad first before CBS or anybody because I found out from an NFL insider,” Chris added. “I forwarded the text message that I was sent. It basically said, ‘Hey, listen, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Romo’s being offered your dad’s job on CBS. That sucks. I’m sorry.’ My dad was in Barbados. And I had to forward the text message to him to let him know.”
So...CBS couldn't get Phil and Chris is pissed so he forwards a text message? Why didn't Chris call dear old dad?
And all that was how much before b/r published 'SIMMS & LEFKOE PODCAST: TONY ROMO REPLACES PHIL SIMMS, CORNERBACK BREAKDOWNS' with that big ole taking advantage of the situation headline?
Oh...Chris has apologized.
So dad knew and didn't tell Chris?
And Chris is apologizing...but not for blaming Jim Nantz, apparently.
*Update - a week later...Simms still can't let it go.
