Some Green Bay Packers fans have it in for Fox announcers Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, who are calling Sunday’s Packers home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“I cannot stress enough how much I hate listening to Joe Buck call a Packers game,” tweeted Split Division Podcast co-host and NFL writer Jared Barsness.
“Man I hate Joe Buck and Troy Aikman so much man,” tweeted one fan.
“Is it just me or is the Tampa-Green Bay game like the NFL version of The Bachelor?” quipped another. “The announcers can’t decide which QB they love the most! Will it be Brady or Rodgers that gets the rose from Joe Buck in the end! #HighDrama!”
“God bless joe buck and @TroyAikman are the worst #Packers,” chimed in another.
Buck and Aikman landed in hot water after a Packers-Buccaneers game last year during which they seemed to mock a flyover on a hot mic at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
“That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover,” Aikman said.
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work,” Buck replied sarcastically.
“That stuff ain’t happening with (a) Kamala (Harris)-(Joe) Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, partner,” Aikman said.
Aikman had to take to Twitter to explain himself following the incident.
“I love a flyover but it was odd to see one over a mostly empty stadium,” Aikman tweeted. “But I am an unwavering patriot that loves this country, has always respected our flag, supported the men and women in the armed forces as well as those in uniform who serve & protect and for anyone to suggest otherwise doesn’t know me, my beliefs or what I have stood for my entire life.”
That tweet drew plenty of angry and sarcastic replies, from, “Nice try,” to, “You lost supporters today Troy,” to, “lol ok Troy.”
Apparently Green Bay Packers fans aren’t the only ones Buck and Aikman have ticked off.
