These two assholes represent the quintessential reason why I quit watching the NFL.
On Sunday, before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers thrashed the Green Bay Packers 38-10 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, game announcers Joe Buck and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman were caught on a hot mic appearing to criticize a military flyover using four A-10 aircraft following the national anthem, with Aikman predicting, “That stuff ain’t happening with Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”
Aikman started the exchange, commenting, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”
Buck chimed in, “That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work.”
Aikman then offered a form of political endorsement: “That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”
Stars and Stripes noted in March 2018 that according to Air Force spokeswoman Jennifer Bentley, military flyovers don’t cost taxpayers since the flyovers are part of training missions. A flyover can be 10 minutes of a 12-hour mission.
Too much money is spent on entitled radical athletes who disrespect the anthem, flag, and nation while collecting six-figure salaries.
That goes for sports announcers, too.
