BROOKFIELD -- As Green Bay Packers fans look back at Sunday's win, some say there was something annoying about the game, and it wasn't what happened on the field.

"Yesterday was probably the worst announcing game that I had witnessed this season," said Steve Quam, Pewaukee.

"I don't really pay attention to them often, but they were out of control," explained Jess Hoffman, Hartland.

Many Packers fans believe Troy Aikman and Joe Buck are biased.

"They definitely pick their favorites and it makes the game less enjoyable when you're sitting at home trying to watch it on TV," said AJ Dorff, Brookfield.

AJ Dorff created a petition Sunday asking the NFL to keep the duo away from the microphone when the Packers take on Dallas.

"It kind of gets annoying cause it's like they're always bashing the Packers," explained Dorff.

More than 4,000 people already signed the online petition.  One signature came as far at the Czech Republic.

"Then I've seen some from Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Florida, California.  I mean from all over.  There's Packers fans everywhere," said Dorff.

Not all fans are on the same page.

"I think Aikman has great insight into the game and Buck does the play by play fine.  He's as good as anybody," said Eichers, Oconomowoc.
