Say what you will about Antonio Cromartie, but the life he leads would make for ideal television in the world we live in today. If reality shows like “Teen Mom” and “Wicked Tuna” can draw ratings, I’m sure one about a professional football player who has 10 children by eight different women in six different states would intrigue the masses. As difficult as it may be to believe, the dude who could hardly remember the names of all of his offspring a couple summers ago is not in favor of the idea.

According to the NY Post, Cromartie recently had his 10th child — a boy named Jagger who is his second child with his wife Terricka. A TV production company has reached out to the Jets corner and his eight baby mamas about creating a reality TV show based on their modern family, and the ladies are reportedly interested while Cromartie is not.

For a guy who is known for saying dumb things and acting like a moron, this is probably one of the best career decisions he has ever made. A reality show about his crew would make for intriguing television because it is such a rare phenomenon, but you can imagine how much of an idiot Cro would make himself out to be considering he already struggles to remember all of their names when on camera.

The bottom line is Cromartie’s family situation is sad. There is no possible way he can juggle playing football and being a father for 10 children who are scattered across the United States. The baby mamas want to do the show because they are single mothers who need money, and that’s understandable. That doesn’t mean the situation is one that should be showcased to the entire country.
