Aside from the festivities that will come into the Aloha Stadium in Hawaii, Troy Aikman has divorced his wife Rhonda after 8 years, and this divorce has come before the Pro Bowl. Although this does not fundamentally affect the NFL, it may affect the upcoming broadcasts as Troy Aikman, a Fox NFL color commentator, may be mired in legal troubles perhaps off-camera. It shouldn’t have direct impact on Aikman’s job, but financially, it might.
Ten years ago, Troy Aikman married his wife, Rhonda Worthy, a former publicist for the Dallas Cowboys, and now have three daughters, including one previously from Rhonda’s former marriage. Professionally, he led the Dallas Cowboys to three Super Bowls during the 1990s and was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2006. He also owns Hall of Fame Racing of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series with former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach and is part-owner of the San Diego Padres.
In my opinion, Aikman is one of better commentators for Fox, particularly when opposite of Joe Buck. Although his analysis isn’t as deep as Howie Long‘s, for example, he does make astute observations about the game, especially from the quarterback’s perspective of the sport. However troublesome this personal matter may be, his credentials professionally in the sport of football speak for themselves.
