Troy Aikman Issues Statement After Military Flyover Comment: “I Am An Unwavering Patriot”

Well, that was only a matter of time…

Yesterday, news broke that Troy Aikman and Joe Buck were caught on a hot mic mocking the military flyover ahead of the Packers/Bucs game on Sunday.

Essentially calling it a waste of taxpayer dollars, Troy also added that it wouldn’t happen under a “Kamala-Biden ticket.”

Aikman: “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.” 

Buck: “That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work.”

Aikman: “That stuff ain’t happening with Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”

Needless to say, people were pissed. And while his empty stadium comment might have some weight, these flyovers are almost always a supplemental part of regular pilot training and don’t cost taxpayers any additional money.

However, today he issued a statement, not really an apology of any kind, more of a statement about his support for the military:
