NFL announcers were caught ridiculing a military flyover before a game Sunday and they are facing the angry backlash online.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman and longtime announcer Joe Buck were awaiting for the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers when they made the comments.

“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!” joked Buck.

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

The interaction was published by Defector media, which claimed that they were tipped off about the interaction.

Many on social media were outraged about comments and they excoriated the pair for what they considered to be an insult to the military.

“Both Of You Are A Disgrace. #Pathetic,” responded Code of Vets, a charity for military veterans.

“Hey @TroyAikman You didn’t have a problem with military flyovers over your 27th Superbowl game! You had a big smile on your face! So now you think it is a waste and a joke? You are a weak spineless sell out to the nation! What a disgrace!” they added in a second tweet.

“Could the @NFL and Democrats be MORE unlikable and unAmerican?” tweeted Jenna Ellis, a lawyer of the Trump campaign.

“Thank you Joe Buck and Troy Aikman for showing us the way to a better future. If only we stop the jet fuel. You know what else is a waste of jet fuel? Joe Biden flying somewhere to talk to 7 people,” tweeted commentator Carmine Sabia.

Others welcomed the comments as a signal that the pair were supportive of the Democratic presidential ticket just ahead of Election Day.

The controversial comments are likely to worsen the NFL’s public relations nightmare over players kneeling during the national anthem for the Black Lives Matter movement. This season, the NFL decided to embrace politics and allow players to express their support for left-wing political causes on the field.

    Just two more reasons to turn off the NFL.. They can say what they want to kiss up to all the felons but I don’t have to listen to them downing our Country!! If Biden/Harris are elected no one will be able to afford to go to a football game!!! And your stupid Communist Democrat asses will be retired!!

  • Fran says:

      Kamala isn’t even constitutionally eligible to be president or vice president. She was born in the U.S. but her parents were both foreign nationals, not U.S. citizens. She is a “citizen” but not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution for those two offices. One MUST be born on U.S. soil to parents who are themselves, citizens.
      Obama was never eligible because his Kenyan, British subject father was not a citizen, but people like Soros used their money and power to get him “installed” and Pelosi “certified” that he was eligible, knowing that he was NOT eligible. He was the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people and now, they are trying to slip another fraud into the White House.

    It looks like since Troy & Joe are so concerned about wasted jet fuel they will be walking to the games they announce from now on so THEY are saving on fuel. Where is the apology from these 2? How about the suspension of these 2?

  • MAC says:

    No shit there won’t be any fly overs if Biden and Harris are in the WH. The Chinese Jinping won’t let them.
