Tony Romo Fantasy Football Event Moves to LA After NFL Threatens Players

DALLAS — (Associated Press) - Tony Romo is ready for another attempt at a fantasy football event that organizers say the NFL essentially nixed last year because of plans to hold the fan-centric activities in Las Vegas.

A company partly owned by the Dallas quarterback announced plans Thursday to hold the National Fantasy Football Convention in the Los Angeles area in July. Romo’s top receiver, Dez Bryant, is among the players scheduled to participate.

The inaugural event was supposed to be last summer in Las Vegas, but was called off after organizers accused the NFL of threatening players with fines or suspensions if they participated because of the venue’s ties to gambling.

The dispute sparked a lawsuit by the company partly owned by Romo, Fan Expo LLC. A Dallas judge threw out a major element of the lawsuit in February, dismissing a claim that the NFL intimidated players with threats of sanctions.

The rescheduled event will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center from July 15-17. Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer and Dallas tight end Jason Witten also are expected to attend.
