Some people were offended by Troy Aikman’s comments on Monday Night Football but Meghan Ottolini doesn’t understand why people are so mand.
During Monday Night’s Chiefs-Raiders game, Aikman wanted the NFL to “take the dresses off” and fix the roughing the passer rule following several controversial calls this week.

Aikman immediately received backlash from fans over the comment.
Troy Aikman just said “we need to take the dresses off” on national tv about a call. Can we as a country cancel him so I never have to hear his voice again?

Did Troy Aikman really just say what I think he said?
Did he really just say that it's time for the league to"take the dresses off"? The 60's called, they want their chauvinist back.

WEEI host Meghan Ottolini was asked if she was offended and this was her response.
“Hell no to both! I’m not offended at all,”“Honestly, who cares?”
“I don’t care. If you’re offended by that, it’s like when somebody asks me if you can say like, ‘Let’s go guys’ to your team of girls soccer players. It’s like, yeah, honestly, why are you wasting your time on this?”
“If this infuriates you, I’m jealous that you have so much energy to dedicate to being mad at Troy Aikman,” she said. “It’s like, why are you watching this anyway?”
