Former Cowboys QB Aikman Puts Out a Threat on Skip Bayless

The Dallas Morning News reports that former Cowboy Troy Aikman says he wants to come after columnist Skip Bayless.

Troy Aikman has a long memory, at least when it comes to Skip Bayless. Bayless, a former Dallas sports columnist, wrote a book about the Dallas Cowboys that was published in 1996, when Aikman was the team’s star quarterback. In the book, Bayless famously speculated — without providing a shred of evidence — that Aikman might be gay. This week, Aikman was asked about the episode 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.” “You certainly will say something,” McDowell said. “Oh, yeah. Yeah,” Aikman replied. “But you don’t think it will get physical, do you?” McDowell said. “Well, I mean, I don’t know. I don’t know,” Aikman said.
