Troy Aikman Will Beat You Up For Ever Wondering If He’s Gay

[Skip Bayless’ book which speculated whether former Dallas Cowboys football player Troy Aikman might be gay] was written 16 years ago and there is not one shred of evidence that these rumors hurt Aikman’s career in the slightest. He won three Super Bowls, was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and has been the lead NFL analyst on Fox for years.

So why is Aikman (who is divorced and has children) still bothered by this? It sounds like a classic case of someone protesting too much. It’s also offensive — to Aikman, being said to be gay is something so heinous that he would hold a grudge for 16 years and threaten to physically attack the person saying it. That’s sad and says a lot more about Aikman than it does about Bayless.

- Outsports Jim Buzinski commenting on Aikman’s recent statement to the Dallas Morning News that he might beat Bayless up if they ever crossed paths. In the same interview Aikman also said, “I’m not so sure Skip’s not gay.” Oooooh, burn!

      Perhaps he forgot the first Superbowl we watched him play in – and when they showed his parents there were all these obvious queens (ok, maybe 2-3) with them watching him too and we were told they were friends of Troy’s. And he wonders why the rumors had any traction.

      After reading about Aikmen’s comments the scene from “Jeffrey” is going through my mind

      The part on this link between 2:23-2:50

      The perfect comment about Aikmen

      Know any gay people who insist they’d beat the hell out of someone for accusing them of being hetero?

      Total gay face!

      And how threatening to beat someone up is a pretty extreme response meant to deflect speculation.

      @christopher di spirito: For the past 20 years, I’ve wondered what it was that he reminded me of . . .

      Danged if you’re not right, Christopher di spirito . . . Troy Aikman does look like a frog.

      I’d still kiss him, though. Just to see if one of us turns into a prince . . .

      Who really cares? He is an unattractive has been and to hold a grudge for 16 years seems obsessive and one does think he protests too much. Are there as many as six people who care what his sexuality is?

      We care because it is offensive. To feel you have to physically hurt someone because they said you were gay shows how clueless he is. Can’t you connect the lines between this type of reaction and gay bashing and bullying. You don’t discount these type of comments when it is from someone who has the public eye. You can see the people in Texas and the South saying “right on.” This should be called for what it is. Just saying your gay is worthy of violence. Rather then inclusion this brings on exclusion. No I don’t find this funny.

      Will Aikman take a page out Tom Cruise’s book and sue? Troy, if you’re not gay, don’t worry about it. But since he is worried about it, it makes me suspicious why?

      wow you people, no offense, are far too sensitive and have angered me reading this. So i am a P1 of this radio station and heard the interview live. please listen to audio and not just read quotes before u look like idiots. i typed in troy aikman skip bayless to see if skip had responded to this and shockingly this site was the 3rd last news story to pop up. i couldnt believe the 3rd most relevant news story was gays attacking troy, and even some of yall on the posts calling him gay.the man was public figure no.1 in Dallas at the time and being accused of something he is not which whether u want to admit it is frowned upon espically among pro sports players espically then. that would be like accusing a christian of being a muslim for no reason with no substance. not that theres anything wrong with that as the famous seinfeld quote goes. but it has negative impact on that persons perception. i was in middle school then and had no idea who skip bayless was and never knew it was him who said that but i remember kids always saying troy was gay. So his nothing accusations affected his perception in a false way, if you cant see how that would anger someone then youre as dumb as you are gay.i think the gay community is just protecting one of your own in Skip! to say aikman is a gay basher is yall just lookin for a fight
