    Well, growing up/living in Texas, I can say the same as you. We never referred to Skoal, etc as chew, only dip. It could be a regional thing, I don't know but I found this on the net.......

    Difference Between Dip and Chew


    Dipping, on the other hand, is a traditional form of American snuff (don’t get it confused with snuff which is inhaled) and is placed on the lower lip and gums that tend to cause extra saliva when dipping. The nicotine is absorbed through the mouth, and the juices that are formed when dipping are sometimes swallowed or spat depending on one’s preference.

    Chewing tobacco is one of the oldest ways to consume tobacco, and the variety of these products is the leaf, pellets/bits, and plugs (leaf tobacco that has a sweetener). They are placed between the gums, teeth, or cheeks and, just as the name implies, chewed for consumption. Chewing tobacco is said to help you experience the taste of its natural flavor. Chewing and dipping-based products are also called “smokeless tobacco products.”


    Summary:

    1.Dipping is ground tobacco that is placed on the lower lip and gums and is sometimes spat or swallowed. Chewing is consuming a leaf or bits of tobacco that are placed between the gums, teeth or cheeks.
    2.Dipping allows the saliva to naturally extract the juices from the product. Chewing-based products require you to chew it in order to release its natural flavor.
    3.Both products are consumed orally.
    4.Both products are deemed safer to use when compared to smoking tobacco.


    I never thought I would ever debate the difference in tobaccos :p

    Chewing not dipping regardless if it is snuff or leaf tobacco. I'm sure it's regional. I'd have been beat as a teenager if I ever said can I get a dip. Always can I get a chew, regardless if it was Copey or Levi

    As an aside I get the difference and why people make the distinction. I just don't like it be referred to as dipping.

    Where are ya from? That could explain a lot, especially if West Coast or up North. While we lived in Cali, they called it chew as well, bugged me to no end! :cool:

    Was he gouging himself or taking his time?

    I want to know so I can contact ESPN with all the details. Then they will run the story with me in it!

    Yeah, they'll call me a "source" like the media supposedly does for all the other unimportant stories they run with. If I'm lucky, they'll name me as an UNNAMED source! That would be so kewl...

    After my shift I caught up with the Mavs and Spurs during game four of the playoffs. The camera panned over a few times to Tony9 and Jason82 in the not-so-cheap-seats. There I noticed Romo spitting into a red, plastic, Solo cup. He was definitely enjoying some nicotine. LOL

    Back in the hey-day, Larry Allen always had a fat lip of snuff on the sidelines. I'm 95% sure Romo was dippin'. I'm sure Skoal or Copenhagen or whatever brand it was would love for Romo to endorse em'. lol

    I chalk it up to all of the pressure of being THE QB for the most visible team on the planet, not being necessarily liked by his peers, (see also NFL Network's Top 100) married with two little boys, and most importantly, not being a leader. No wonder he turned to nicotine.

    Or gorging himself if he was gouging himself I'd be worried. ;)

    You're missing one of life's greatest pleasures if your not downing some good steak every now and then.
    Or some smoked brisket or turkey. Fried chicken. A fat greasy juicy hamburger.

    Is it still "spitting" into the cup or is there a newer way to describe it?

    Thanks. My fingers aren't translating my thoughts very well nowadays. Or is it the other way around? :p

    He's doing it for health reasons. :D

    Well, for sure Witten dips on occasion. My guess is he picked it from his best friend.
    Plus, ifRomo is trying get in shape, a dip would be better than multiple beers.

    Not really a spitter, but if you spit a cup is ok, I think a bottle with a cap would be better. Less spillage.
