    I feel that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman need to simply do their job and cover the games and keep their own idiotic and sometimes shocking opinions to themselves.

    All you ever here is Cowboys this and Cowboys that even when they are NOT playing and Troy is calling a game. I have always blamed his multiple concussions and that he just gets stuck and cannot get away from the Cowboy years. I usually mute him and try to get the radio guys. I’d like to heat about the current game/players not how they compare to the Cowboys of now or past. Especially if they are not even playing. Not sure if you need a petition just mute the dude. We actually have a contest to see how many time Cowboys are mentioned, or where he is in a Cowboy story when we unmute him.

  • Why waste time watching that

    Laugh who watches the corrupt bunch of misfits anymore and announcers, thats just a fill in, who needs that unless if you are blind I guess, but they all kiss butt to too many of the overpaid scrubs.

    do what i do turn these monkeys off and listen to wayne and larry on wtmj radio. have listened to them for over 5 yrs. now, do the same thing with badgers football problem solved

  • Bruce

    I have no issue with Buck but Aikman wears out the Cowboy references. The Cowboys
    have not been relevant for a while & hopefully after Sunday the Packers will end the
    hype for another year.

    Really? I mean, REALLY!!!???? Can’t handle the opinions of someone else? That’s all they are, opinions. The Packers always prove that the opinions of others are like anal cavitiesโ€ฆ..everybody has one. RELAX!!!

      But they aren’t supposed to give their opinions they’re supposed to be unbiased. It does get annoying. Maybe we should just make some drinking game out of it.

  • Karen

    I wish ALL the announcers would pipe down more. There is too much yapping about insignificant stuff throughout the game. I usually mute it for a good portion of the game, no matter who is doing it.

    I’ve never understood the perception that Buck and Aikman are anti-Packer. Buck is annoying, yes, but I usually agree with Aikman’s analysis. He’s not afraid to call out bad plays/strategy by either team. When McCarthy decided to go for it on 4 and 1 at his own 42 yard line, Aikman said he didn’t agree with it. After the game, McCarthy scolded himself for that decision, essentially agreeing with Aikman.

    Time for these Packers fans to get thicker skin.

    Are you kidding me? These two are so in love with your quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) that you hardly know anyone else is even playing the game. When they call Cowboy games anymore, I turn down the volume and turn on the radio play by play. They are equally sickening but, Joe Buck needs to return to baseball because he sucks

  • Barry

    I thought it was us thinking Joe Buck was a little over the edge. I’ve noticed in this in the past, not just this game. As soon as the other team does one thing right, its the end for the Packers, lol. The guy seems nice enough, I just don’t think football is his game to announce. Troy is ok, I think its just guilt by association, lol.

  • Ryan

    As a fan of football AND of the Dallas Cowboys I say that petition is a load of garbage…. Who the hell cries about something so stupid..??? It’s called criticism people… They don’t just talk about the Packers the comment like that about ALL TEAMS! That is why it’s called commentary. This is something that should have never even been created seeing how all of the GB fans I come across on a daily do the exact same thing they are… Being critics of other teams and their players… What a crybaby

  • Clayton Bigsby

    Please remember that Aikman was not very intelligent in the first place as he only scored a 29 on his Wonderlic test when he was drafted. Then factor in all of those brain injuries while he was playing and you can start to see why he can only process thoughts about the Cowboys. Hopefully when he is dead they can study his brain and use the research to help other low intelligence people like him

  • Lelzner

    I don’t know about GB fans, I want Aikman off the air when Dallas plays. All he is talking about is Rodgers. I am sick of his negativity against his old team. He needs to be voted off the island!!

  • Richard Berndt

    I can’t and Aikman as commentator and it’s been going on for years. He just annoys the crap out of me. ..
    My solution…. If its an Aikman game, I switch TV sound over to my Pandora app on my blu-ray, with closed captioning .
    Result… No more annoyance…pure music bliss and getting the jist of the game with CC…. Go Packers!!
