Troy Aikman really knows how to hold a grudge. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback is still pissed of at Skip Bayless over a book Bayless wrote about him back in 1996. In the book Bayless speculated that Aikman might be gay without providing any proof.

Aikman took any opportunity this week to shoot back at Bayless, saying Skip might be gay. Here is what he said on BaD Radio, the afternoon talk show on The Ticket (1310 AM).

After saying — rather gratuitously — “I’m not so sure Skip’s not gay,” Aikman made it clear that he still bears a grudge.

“When a guy like that comes out and, whether it’s intimated or stated, and there’s no substance to that claim, and he’s doing it purely to gain interest in a book, that’s a problem.,” he said.

Aikman then added:

“I will tell you this. I’ve not seen — I’ve not physically seen Skip Bayless since that time. That was in ’95. And I still kind of wonder what I might do to him when I do see him.”

Dan McDowell, the co-host of BaD Radio, pressed him on the point.

“You certainly will say something,” McDowell said.

“Oh, yeah. Yeah,” Aikman replied.

“But you don’t think it will get physical, do you?” After saying — rather gratuitously — “I’m not so sure Skip’s not gay,” Aikman made it clear that he still bears a grudge.

“Well, I mean, I don’t know. I don’t know,” Aikman said. said.

“Well, I mean, I don’t know. I don’t know,” Aikman said.

Although I’m not old enough to remember when this book was published I’m not surprised Skip made these allegations about Troy possibly being gay without any proof. Skip says stupid things all the time on ESPN First Take.

If Skip and Troy actually got into a fight I would put my money on Troy. Troy might knock Skip out in one punch.

    Wrong about Troy knocking out skip. He is a gym rat and is in tip top shape for someone his age. Lol Troy wouldn’t win easily

    Considering all of Troy’s concussions, it’s a wonder he knows his own name much less the fact that Skip saying he might be gay back in 1996. Doesn’t he have a Rent A Center commercial to film instead of trying to take on Skip?

  3. huh? says:

    I think they’re both gay but I don’t blame Troy for being pissed.
