Outside of the novelty of the first few games. |
Nobody is going to tune into ESPN games because Troy Aikman is calling them. I think you have the cause and effect backwards.
Getting Troy Aikman does not give ESPN a big game feel. Getting a big game would give ESPN a big game feel.
ESPN paid Jon Gruden a boatload of money. It hardly made a difference.
It's wasted money and I wouldn't be surprised if Brady quit early on his tenure. But hey it's not my money Fox can piss away whatever money they want.
