I hate to write about Doug Gottlieb and the dumb thing he said about Andrew Luck after the QB retired from the NFL on Saturday night because I gotta think Doug Gottlieb likes having people write about him and the dumb things he says.

That’s his brand, after all.

But this is too good to ignore. Troy Aikman, who is the lead analyst on Fox’s NFL broadcasts, ripped Gottlieb, who has a radio show for Fox Sports, over his Andrew Luck take. He even seemed to take a shot at the debate/screaming shows that air on FS1 and that often include Gottlieb for his hot takes.
