The National Football League has made it clear that the days when the league was a proud patriot are in the past.
The NFL wisely stopped advocating for the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement after going all-in initially. After the horrifying early ratings, they pulled back. But despite that, the league has become polluted by the toxic leftist politics.
On Sunday, two of the league’s star announcers who commentate for NFL games openly expressed that they hoped that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will soon be in the White House. More than that, they were also heard dissing a military flyover. Because of that, they have come under criticism.
The incident happened before the matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers aired on national television. The match was held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium on Sunday.
Two of Fox’s star announcers, Troy Aikman and Joe Buck slipped and were caught on a microphone belittling the military and revealing their bias for the Democrats.
Former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback, Troy Aikman, commented, “That stuff ain’t happening with a Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now partner.”
According to Sporting News’ Joe Buck, Troy Aikman caught mocking stadium flyovers: ‘Your tax dollars at work’:
The two announcers were heard making fun of the military flyovers that have become a regular occurrence at NFL games over the years.
“That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover,” Aikman had said.
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work,” Buck quipped in response.
“That stuff ain’t happening with the Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, partner,” Aikman concluded.
Despite what the two of them said, nothing on Biden’s campaign website indicates that he would limit military flyovers at NFL games or other sports events if he were elected.
Those remarks by Aikman and Buck further prove the point that the NFL’s disdain towards the military, the flag, the national anthem, and even its own fans, are real.
In the summer, the NFL was hijacked by the BLM and far-left activists who forced commissioner Roger Goodell to play the Black national anthem every week one game. He was also forced to display SJW slogans in the end zones.
The NFL was able to take it back from there thanks to LeBron James forcing the NBA’s hand to promote the divisive BLM message. However, all it took was the carelessness of two announcers to remind the fans where the league really stands.
