The National Football League continues to make it clear that the days when the league was proud to be patriotic are a thing of the past.
While the NFL has wisely de-emphasized its advocacy for the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement after initially going all-in only to pull back after horrific early ratings, it has become polluted by toxic leftist politics.
Now two of the star announcers who call games for the NFL have come under criticism for ripping a military flyover on Sunday and openly expressing their hopes that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will soon be in the White House.
The action went down before the nationally televised matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium on Sunday.
Fox’s Troy Aikman and Joe Buck who are the network’s A team slipped up and were caught on a hot mic dissing the military and revealing their pro-Democrat bias.
The former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback commented that “That stuff ain’t happening with a Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now partner.”

Military flyovers have been a regular occurrence at NFL games over the years, but it seems that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman aren’t too keen on them.
Ahead of Fox’s telecast of Sunday’s game between the Packers and Buccaneers the two were caught making fun of flyovers, which have drawn criticism in recent years for what many consider wasteful spending, after one happened above a mostly empty Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
“That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover,” Aikman said.
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work,” Buck quipped in response.
“That stuff ain’t happening with the Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, partner,” Aikman concluded, referring to the Democratic Party presidential ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
There is nothing on Biden’s campaign website to indicate whether he would limit flyovers at NFL games or other sporting events if he were elected.
Aikman and Buck’s errant remarks serve as an exclamation point on the disdain towards the military, the flag, the national anthem, and its own fans that the NFL has embraced under the tenure of commissioner Roger Goodell.
The election of President Trump was all that it took for the mask to slip from a league that built an enduring and iconic American brand that was synonymous with patriotism for decades but was defiled by a chronic malcontent named Colin Kaepernick who like a cult leader, had wide sway over the NFL’s players.
The 2017 season was a dumpster fire in terms of television ratings when Goodell allowed millionaire ingrates to effectively wipe their privileged behinds with the flag and spit on the troops but agreed to pay hush money to the troublemakers and cut a deal by settling a lawsuit brought by Kaepernick.
Things returned to normal and most fans eventually returned but this summer, the NFL was successfully hijacked by BLM and an army of far-left activists who forced Goodell to play the Black national anthem before every week one game and display SJW slogans in end zones.
The NFL walked it back and was able to fly under the radar thanks to LeBron James and the NBA’s suicidal decision to promote the divisive BLM message but all that it took was the indiscretion of the two announcers to remind fans of where the league really stands.
