You could walk into most courtrooms in America during homicide or manslaughter cases and still not find the amount of remorse that King Henry shows here with Rome. And even if you do, I’d be willing to bet that person isn’t holding a stick of deodorant in their hand.
I’ll be honest, I’ve wondered this since the first time Derrick punched holes through those 3 Jaguars faces on that 99-yard touchdown run. And then I wondered it again when he double-tapped Earl Thomas in the back. And then again when he tossed Josh Norman into the Cumberland. And then again when he stuffed Alexander Myers into the core of the earth. And even when he sent Darius Leonard flying earlier this year. Does this dude ever show any remorse? Because let’s be real, he’s essentially ended careers. Earl Thomas hasn’t been in football since. Alexander Myers hasn’t played since 2020 either. Josh Norman may have played, but he was forced to resort to a sanctuary city like San Francisco to do so.
Well, it turns out, yeah, the King does kinda feel bad when he absolutely destroys a dude for doing it.
Also, is it just me or is Derrick sounding more outgoing? More confident? I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s his ability to fold grown men into origami or maybe it’s the fact that he has suddenly realized he is the best. Or maybe it’s just the fact that he likes talking about stiff-arms and destroying other humans? But the dude just sounds comfortable.
Credit Rome for asking the question that’s on my mind every time I see this dude wreck someone. Which is often. And another quick note on Rome: Seeing one King interview another is just dope as hell to me. Feel however you want to feel about Rome, but to me, the man is the king of sports talk. Always has been, always will be. He essentially birthed the format that we know today. And having seen it first hand for many years, the dude is the hardest working man in the industry. Even today. And for an industry that is absolutely FILLED with lazy, that is impressive as hell. He is anything but. And that’s why he’s at where he is, and it’s why he’s been where he’s at for over 30 years. The man is three decades in and is still heard on 200+ stations nationwide in Canada.
Mad respect for the pimp in the box. And mad respect to Derrick.
