I'll never understand why NFC quarterbacks sign with an AFC network. I'm sure its the bucks. Seems like they would translate better to the NFC and FOX. Thoughts?
Romo probably doesn't want to call Cowboy games..

and hear how he is biased 10 times a year.

Aikman hides it well most of the time, IMO
They sign where...

they get the best offer. They should be able to analyze an AFC game the same as an NFC game.
Troy Aikman

but isn't the "AFC game" the same exact game as the "NFC game"? How are they different?
They follow the money

Clearly you are...you would assume they have more insight having played against these teams

That lasts for a couple years. What insight does Aikman have about playing the Giants, Eagles, and Washington now?

Nope, still doesn't clear it up. Romo didn't play against anyone last year.
My theory is that when players first come into the booth  
PatersonPlank : 4/20/2017 11:28 am : link
they'd rather not comment on their old teams. So going to the AFC makes sense. After a few years this wears off and they don't care as much.
I was half expecting a hockey thread

about the Esposito brothers without the NFT.
Probably an easier transition  
GuzzaBlue : 4/20/2017 1:28 pm : link
and also less distraction.
I thought this was going to be about

That's exactly what I thought. Probably would have been a better thread too.
