Tony Romo's Off-Season Goal -- Soccer

3/5/2010 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is risking serious injury -- and possibly his $67 million contract -- and it's all for a secret, indoor passion. Dude plays in an adult recreational soccer league.

Tony Romo: Click to view!
TMZ has confirmed that Romo participates in an indoor 6-on-6 league in Texas -- a league that even requires players to sign an injury waiver ... even though slide tackling and the use of cleats are strictly forbidden.

We obtained footage from Tony's most recent game -- and dude doesn't look too bad ... in fact, he even scored a goal.

As far as the Cowboys are concerned -- they're not. A rep for the team tells us, "He's been playing in off-season basketball and soccer leagues in the area since he became an NFL player, so it must not be something that is in his contract."

No word if Jessica Simpson is allowed to attend games.

RE 13. Soccer (football) is so damn boring!
Who wants to watch someone kick a damn ball back and forth?
Posted at 10:00AM on Mar 5th 2010 by golf is boring too.

Yes, throwball is so exciting because of all the stops in action. Have to stop to measure. Have to stop for a replay. Have to stop for the chains to move. Have to stop for a huddle. Have to stop for a 2 min warning. I guess some people just love to see three downs and a punt then switch. There are less than 20 fouls in soccer and 87 in throwball. Guess which game flows better and has constant action. Don't get me wrong I love throwball when there is something actually happening.
