Aikman is a Cowboy GOD !!! Quit your crying !!!

shut your pie hole.

i'm not a cowboys fan. i don't like the cowboys. i get to see them everyweek on fox. i think troy aikman is one of the best commentators in the biz. i think he is very objective, and calls them like he sees them. :^

Well, you are the only one thinking that he is biased, so that's an even smaller sample size.

And yes, it is a potential conflict of interest, but if the public doesn't see a problem with it, then why change something that works?

Add a 3rd then... Aikman did that game well. He called the MN/DAL game without noticeable bias IMO.

And here's a 4th ... from a friggin' Iggles fans no less :-D . Aikman is just fine as a commentator when the Cowboys are playing.

I don't really see how it's a conflict of interest. These guys are paid to give their opinions. Anyway, when Aikman first started commentating I disliked him just because but I think he's one of the better ones out there now. In the games I've watched I haven't noticed much bias and can remember some instances in years past where he really took it to the Cowboys.
