Dallas Cowboys legendary quarterback Troy Aikman made his feelings about the hiring of Skip Bayless by Fox Sports crystal clear.

“To say I’m disappointed in the hiring of Skip Bayless would be an enormous understatement. Clearly, [Fox Sports president of national networks] Jamie Horowitz and I have a difference of opinion when it comes to building a successful organization. I believe success is achieved by acquiring and developing talented, respected and credible individuals, none of which applies to Skip Bayless,” the Super Bowl champion told Sports Illustrated.

Aikman didn’t specify why he was so mad about the hiring of Bayless, according to the same report.

Fox Sports is reportedly paying Bayless around $25 million over the next four years.

There’s probably going to be a little bit of tension between these two in the break room.
