AWW MAN! Because nothing says unbiased reporting like Troy Aikman being on the # 1 announcing crew

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the General Discussion forum).

It's not enough that we get the Cowpukes shoved down are throats all the time. But we also have years of a Cowboy homer on the announcing crew.

Today's game, Cowboys need a field goal to have any chance. Kicker misses, Aikman's response, AWWW MAN!.

Way to go Packers.

Dallas goes down again.

1. Cowboys don't show up until the 4th quarter,

and then they tried to give the game away, anyway.

3. You ain't kidding

The refs have been afraid of Cowboy ownership since 1964

4. I don't get that 4th quarter roughing the passer call either.

An incidental hand touch to Dak's helmet, with no force. Cheating by the Refs, if you ask me.

18. Can't hit the QB in the head.

It's a point of emphasis of late and called all the time.

22. Yes, of course you can't.

What I saw was not a hit and looked inadvertent or even the result of his arm being deflected. Bad call, IMO.

At least the so-called America's team didn't win.

Ref whining is not allowed!

6. I listen to alot of sports on the radio

I dont own a TV so its radio. Satellite or lately the
Tune In app.
Sometimes to listen to my team I have to listen to the other teams broadcast. Or to listen to any game I get the home teams announcers. I get it, being partisan for the home crowd listening, no problem

Tonight I watched and listened to the national broadcast by chance

Troy Aikman sounded like a hometown announcer for the Cowboys to my ears. You could tell by his comments and inflection in his voice

They really shouldnt have someone who played for a team on the field call a Nationally broadcast game. Its not fair to him or the listeners

9. Aikman has historically been bad

When he mutters "AWW MAN" when the Cowpukes miss a field goal he has crossed the line.

They will try and spin it that he was hoping for a great finish, BS, he was hoping for a Cowboy win.

To be fair, he probably doesn't even realize his bias, his management has no excuse.

10. Not just Aikman. It's also that little fuckwit sitting next to him.

I feel like I'm watching the local broadcast.

At least they're not as bad as John Madden calling a Bret Favre game.

I love it when the Packers clobber "America's Team," Dallas.

(I live an hour's drive from Green bay, BTW.)

15. The reaction was because Maher is/was one of the best kickers in the league...

but has missed multiple extra points and field goals in the past few games, including two today.

It was because of context; it has nothing to do with Aikman supposedly being a homer.

23. I'm hoping Rodgers gets in one more Super Bowl before he retires.

Be one heckuva ending to his career.

BTW, Aaron Rodgers and I share birthdays, December 2nd!

24. Locking.

This was alerted on for not meeting the rule that sports topics canít be posted in GD.

The alert was correct:

Threads about sports/sporting events which do not have a political angle are not permitted under normal circumstances and should be posted under Sports.

Open discussion of sports is permitted during very high-profile news events which are heavily covered across all newsmedia.
