No, Tony Romo did not hang up on the Baltimore media
This time, it was a phone call, not a football.
Romo's conference call with reporters who cover the Ravens ended abruptly after 37 seconds. Several members of the Baltimore media tweeted that Romo hung up on them after two questions, but that wasn't the case.
The Cowboys public relations staff provided a tape of the call, which was interrupted by loud static after 37 seconds while Romo was answering a question about his inconsistency. ("Well, I think our team just has to continue to execute a little bit better than we've been ...")
At that point, Romo said, "Hello? Hello?" He stayed on the line for another two minutes, at one point saying, "I can't hear anything."
Romo will hold another conference call with the Baltimore media later this afternoon, when he will give boring answers about execution that will surely be worth the wait.
