Troy Aikman is not too happy with Skip Bayless, who has a history of making controversial statements to generate a buzz from his viewer’s. Skip once wrote a book—Hell-Bent: The Crazy Truth About the “Win or Else” Dallas Cowboys—which suggested that former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is gay. But Aikman is saying that’s a complete lie.
According to YardBarker.com
In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, Aikman weighed in about the accusation and also ripped Bayless for making unsubstantiated claims to garner attention.
“I’m upset about it because it was made up and there was nothing accurate about anything that was insinuated,” Aikman told Deitsch. “And he did it, as he does everything, just for attention. I am probably more upset because I probably should have responded to it at the time it was going on. The advice to me was, ‘Hey, just don’t address it. It’s not worth it. It doesn’t make any sense. It’s ridiculous. All it’s going to do is have people continue to talk about his book.’ So I didn’t.”
“But I probably could have responded differently and maybe that would have changed things. Maybe it wouldn’t have. But it is ridiculous, and, yeah, it bothers me. If that is a lifestyle people choose, so be it. It doesn’t affect me one way or another. But it is not my lifestyle.”
Aikman seemed pretty upset about Bayless’ suggestion. And you can’t blame him. Bayless and fellow ESPNer Colin Cowherd have been known to go on rants that feel more like character assassinations than journalism. At some point, they should be held accountable for making false claims and coming up with attention-grabbing narratives.
First of all why is Troy Aikman trying to talk about something that he decided not to discuss years ago ? Now he wants to resurrect this story? Nobody is thinking about who or what hole Aikman sticks his wonder bread inside of, unless Troy is using this as a way to possibly come out of the closet, then this was dumb. He has just awakened the dragon. Trust and believe he shouldn’t want no part of Skip’s shady behind.
