Mac Engel: The PGA Tour has a major Tony Romo problem on its hands

Mac Engel: The PGA Tour has a major Tony Romo problem on its hands Your golf event is not looking good when the most captivating person to follow is wildly popular for his ability to see football plays into the future rather than hitting PGA Tour caliber shots. Tony Romo has no business playing in The Nelson and he knows it, but both extending and accepting the invite are solid scores for the PGA Tour event this week in Dallas.

Fan Expo LLC, partly owned by the former Cowboys quarterback, sued the NFL after the 2015 National Fantasy Football Convention event was canceled. Lawyers for the Fan Expo contended the NFL threatened players scheduled to attend with discipline for violation of the league’s gambling policy.

The 2016 event, scheduled for Pasadena, Calif., also was canceled. That dispute centered around sponsorship.

Romo’s side claimed the league interfered by pressuring Electronic Arts – makers of the Madden NFL franchise – to withdraw their sponsorship of the event.

It has been tied up in the court system since.

The initial lawsuit by Romo’s side was dismissed by a Texas district court, and a separate lawsuit claiming the league strong-armed players into avoiding the event also was heard and dismissed. Lawyers for Romo appealed the lower court decision, seeking a reversal.

But, on Thursday, an appeals court in Dallas let a lower court ruling stand, giving the NFL another victory in the dispute, 105.3 The Fan reports.
