Yeah, we don’t quite get it, but a lot of Green Bay Packers fans have a healthy hatred for Troy Aikman and by association, Joe Buck. Unfortunately, those guys are Fox’s No. 1 NFL broadcast team and, as the Green Bay Packers are clearly the NFL’s No. 1 team, you get a lot of crossover.
The Chicago Tribune has confirmed that Buck and Aikman will be on hand to call the week 1 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.
Also, this broad…
As someone that pays (via Sunday Ticket) to be stuck with the Fox national announcers, I can confirm my hatred of this duo. Somehow we are stuck listening to these packer-hating clowns for 8 games a year. Thumbs up to them, however, for at least knowing that Makaya Hyde and Bryan Beluga are not members of the Packers.
I like Clay Aikman, he’s got real purty lips. I wish Joe Suck would stick to Cardinals games like his daddy
I do not mind Aikman. Buck is the pudwhack.
I just wish my directv didn’t have a delay so it would line up with the radio.
Can we bring Jim Irwin and Max McGee back from the dead to a broadcast?
I’m glad I’m not the only one that hates this duo. Aikman has had a searing hatred for the Packers for years.
I remember when Favre wouldn’t quit and kept playing great ball. Aikman could barely keep the resentment and jealousy out of his commentary. He hated Favre for being able to take the hits he couldn’t and keep getting up and keep playing relentlessly. Aikman could only watch from the box sneering.
He’d always have some backhanded comment about Favre when he screwed up and be silent when he would torch some defense.
Joe Buck? What do you say about him? They stand the bastard on a fruit box so he doesn’t look like Aikman’s half time midget sex slave.
Most of the Cowboys of Aikman’s era are total fucks.
Screw those two.
I see my loathing for Aikman and especially Buck has been well covered here, so I’ll just point out that Joe Buck, in profile, has a forehead that looks like a typewriter.
I do wonder if Aikman could crush Buck’s ginormous forehead with his gorilla hands ala The Mountain vs. The Viper.
