I figured as much. I am not wont to buy into the "so-and-so hates the broncos" rhetoric. However Cross is one guy who sticks out to me.
Guys like Fouts who haven't played in two decades don't have any players left to hate. As I said, I think color analysts favor the squads they played for. Offensive players will defend ticky tacky PI calls or roughing the passer calls while defensive players will complain and raise a stink about how unfair and difficult it is for a defender in those situations. I think sometimes if they are calling for the team they played for they will be overly kind, but sometimes the reverse is true and I find them to be overly critical of their former teams.
