The fear of the quarterback of your favorite team being on the field with the game on the line. Named after Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, the fear developed amongst Dallas fans when Romo choked in the biggest games of each season (most notably December and playoff games). Fans of other teams developed this fear, when their QB played like Romo.
Once their romophobia kicks in, many NFL fans can't bring themselves to even watch the 4th quarter of the game.
