When Athletes Get Angry: Jim Everett Attacks Jim Rome August 24, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports, Video, When Athletes Get Angry.
Jim Rome is notorious for talking trash about athletes and things were no different when former Los Angeles Rams Quarterback Jim Everett appeared on his show in 1994. Everett was a decent QB, but developed a reputation for shying away from hits after he fell to the ground before being sacked in a NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. Shortly after, Rome began refering to Everett as “Chris Everett”, who was a female tennis player.
When Everett appears on the show, Rome refers to him as “Chris” to his face, and Everett warns him not to do it again. Rome being Rome, decides to call him “Chris” one more time, and Everett just loses it.
