I think of HOF linebackers like Singletary, Butkus, Taylor... guys who hit like a ton of bricks, hurt people, and even (in the case of Taylor) had off-the-field problems. Compare those guys to Romanowski and there is no comparison. As mean and tough as (current) HOF LBs were on the field, they weren't jerkwads like Romo. The guy juiced himself up to squeeze a few more years out of a good--but not HOF--career. He assaulted a teammate and shrugs it off with a "I wish it didn't happen."
He still doesn't take responsibility for his actions, and yet puts it in his book (the language of that chapter is him talking pretty macho, ain't it?) so he can make money off it. Jerk. If I were his victim's lawyers, I'd ask for a royalty from the book.
Bottom line: as a player, Romanowski was good, but not HOF material. As a man, he's a despicable jerk who needs therapy to realize what a jerk he is.
