During their commentary on Monday night, Fox Sports commentators Joe Buck and Troy Aikman were caught on a hot mic lamenting the military flyover before the game which was held in an empty stadium.

After the Twitter firestorm that follows literally everything that happens these days, Aikman took to his Twitter account and clarified what he meant. “I love a flyover but It was odd to see one over a mostly empty stadium,” he wrote, “but I am an unwavering patriot that loves this country, has always respected our flag, supported the men and women in the armed forces as well as those in uniform who serve & protect and for anyone to suggest otherwise doesn’t know me, my beliefs or what I have stood for my entire life.”

It was estimated that a flyover like that costs taxpayers over $100,000.
