Cris Collinsworth is one of the best NFL analysts in the game, but the veteran NBC broadcaster has a way of making different fan bases absolutely despise him simply with the things that come out of his mouth.
Such was the case on Sunday, but for an entirely different reason. It was what he said some 36 years ago in a video that had people losing their minds.
“I’m not gonna deny it, I walk around with hundred dollar bills hanging out of my pocket…I like girls that aren’t too bright because you can trick ’em a little bit…high school girls love me. Fourteen to eighteen, I’m a big star with them. As soon as they mature, after they turn 18 years old, they start to figure it out.”
While people wanted answers in 2020 about it, Collinsworth already addressed that video some 11 years ago when it surfaced back in 2009.
“As a family man I am extremely embarrassed by an interview I did when I was in my early twenties about dating,” Collinsworth said. “My comments were insulting, immature, and foolishly intended as a joke.
They do not reflect how I lived my life then . . . or now. I was asked to do something humorous about dating, and it has been a major embarrassment to me since the day I said it. I apologize to anyone who has ever had the misfortune to see it now or a quarter-century ago.”
As they say, once something gets posted to the internet, it never goes away. That clip will likely resurface every couple of years until the day he dies.
