In yesterday's game Lloyd had a diving attempt at a ball that Troy Aikman called "tough but catchable". He got his hands on it, but it was a pretty tough play to make. Well fast forward to today....Brandon Lloyd was on with local DC radio hosts The Junkies this morning to talk all things Redskins. The hosts of the show brought this to Lloyd's attention and he had this to say of Aikman....
Sports Junkies Interview: Brandon Lloyd

B-Lloyd: It's tough. It's a tough, it's a tough, it's a fine line between when a guy's showing passion and when a guy doesn't care, you know what I mean? Some guys take losses differently, some guys are able to smile, that's the way guys get over it. Some guys are pissed off for a couple days or till the next game. Guys take it differently. It's tough. It's so much outside input here. I see why people are confused.
You're listening to a guy like Troy Aikman, and you're a fan and you don't really know much about football, I see why you're confused (laughing). There's no such thing as an easy catch in football, there's no such thing.
Junks: Especially when you laid out like that.
B-Lloyd: You know what I mean? So it's tough, man. And I don't believe Troy Aikman anyway. He wasn't man enough to admit his personal life situation while he was a player.
B-Lloyd: So I have a tough time believing him.
Junks: What do you mean his personal life?
B-Lloyd: And there's nothing wrong with his personal life, you know, I have nothing wrong with, with....
Junks: Do you know that that's true?
B-Lloyd: Hey, I'm speculating too. Troy's speculating and I'm speculating.
Junks: [tumult] You're just throwing him under the....NFL players don't....He's like married....He's just speculating....Are you saying that you know something we don't?
B-Lloyd: No, I'm speculating, just like he's speculating. You guys are crazy. (Laughter)
What Lloyd was alluding to was an old rumor started by none other than Skip Bayless. Back in 1996 he stated in his book "Hell Bent" that Troy Aikman was gay. It was kind of funny when Lloyd said it, but be careful B.....Troy Aikman was rumored to have gone to his lawyer back in '96 to ask how much it would cost him to beat Bayless up.
