If you didn’t hate Troy Aikman before, you probably will now.
The Fox broadcaster was making the media rounds at the Super Bowl on Tuesday, when he suggested that the NFL should consider renaming the Lombardi Trophy for New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
Troy Aikman on Bill Belichick being involved in 10 of 51 Super Bowls: "Sounds to me they may want to think about renaming that trophy."

Yes, Troy. Grand idea.
We would just like to point out that the Super Bowl only existed for three of the years that Vince Lombardi was a coach. He won two of them, of course.
Had the game existed earlier, how many would Lombardi have won?
It’s a stupid argument. Anyone who suggests renaming the Lombardi Trophy is essentially doing so because Lombardi coached in another era.
Frankly, I now hope the Patriots lose this weekend.
