The first lesson broadcast professionals are taught is to always assume the microphone in the broadcast booth is "hot" (turned on) and that anything you say can be heard or recorded. Perhaps that's a lesson Joe Buck and Troy Aikman forgot before the start of Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers when they were caught on a hot mic mocking the military flyover that happens at most every NFL game during the National Anthem. Buck and Aikman were recorded saying:
Troy Aikman: "That's a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover."
Joe 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."
Listen for yourself by pressing the play arrow on the recording below. Do you think they were mocking the military flyover or, as some have suggested based on the exaggerated tone in their voices, were they making fun of liberals who complain about military flyovers at sporting events? Either way, it's publicity the NFL probably doesn't want given the significant number of sports fans who've stopped watching games due to player, team, and league support for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.
