A Green Bay fan, like the rest of us, is fed up with being forced to listen to Joe Buck and Troy Aikman for 3 hours every Sunday. He’s so fed up, he created a petition urging the NFL, FOX Sports and Roger Goodell to get the broadcasting duo banned from calling Packers games.
The post on Change.org reads –
“This is a petition to get Joe Buck and Troy Aikman banned from announcing/commentating on the Green Bay Packers.
On behalf of the Green Bay Packers fans across the world, we would like action taken to prohibit them from giving their constant negative input about our team. We are sick of the biased announcing always coming from them.”
As of about 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, January 11th, more than 18,000 people had signed the petition.
Here’s what people are saying on that petition:
“Yesterday was probably the worst announcing game that I had witnessed this season,” said Steve Quam, Pewaukee.
“I don’t really pay attention to them often, but they were out of control,” explained Jess Hoffman, Hartland.
“They definitely pick their favorites and it makes the game less enjoyable when you’re sitting at home trying to watch it on TV,” said AJ Dorff, Brookfield.
“They are both so obviously prejudiced against the Packers. The only time they say good stuff is when it’s almost over and we are winning. Or when Aaron makes a terrific, undisputable play, which he is so good at. GO PACK GO,” said Noreane Ziegel, Reeseville, WI.
“They’re not just bias towards the Packers lets get that straight right away. It’s annoying to hear them bash the opposing team Dallas always has to face. They praise the cowgirls every time they announce their games. It sickening and I certainly wouldn’t mind them NOT announcing the upcoming Greenbay v. Dallas game. Id rather hear another duo announce the game rather than Joe Buck and Troy Aikmen.”
