An exchange between Joe Buck and Troy Aikman about military flyovers went viral earlier this week and people who don't understand sarcasm were upset.
Troy Aikman released a statement on the matter. He made it clear to anyone who is too dense to understand the clip that he has nothing against flyovers or the military.
Joe Buck addressed the controversy on his podcast, "Daddy Issues" and explained that the clip was leaked by a FOX employee and the matter is under investigation.
“This was before our rehearsal … it was clipped by someone along the chain…. They are narrowing down who clipped and sold it,” Buck said. “They will find out who it is because that specific shot of that flyover, which I personally thought was old and a tape … it was actually live but it was not a Fox shot. They know whose shot that was and it was well before the game.”
If you're one of the people offended at all by this then it might be time to seek professional help. At the very least do some research on sarcasm.
These two might be terrible broadcasters, but they were clearly mocking military flyovers as a joke.
