Think about it. No, really take a moment to think about it. Do you truly know why you hate Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo? Maybe you have a valid reason, but, what are the actual odds that you do? Slim. Not just any slim, either. Ally McBeal slim.

I know what you’re feeling right now. I can almost smell your disdain as you read this. How dare anyone challenge your hate for this man? Quite the contrary, actually. This isn’t to challenge how you feel about the lightning rod of a quarterback, Tony Romo. This article is to point out that, simply put, there’s a great chance that you hate him by brilliant media design. Not by your own devices.

Let’s begin by assessing fact versus fiction, or, rather fact versus perception. It’s been said often that perception is reality. Although I personally don’t subscribe to that fallacy, many people do. So let’s begin there, shall we? I should also point out that this article is not a defense of Cowboys’ QB Tony Romo, but, rather a look into the apparent agenda in place to villainize him without merit or probable cause.
