What’s the deal with: The Fox NFL Robot

Champion of the Sun is happy to present the first post written by our newest contributor, Robin.

Cowboys version shown because lol

That fucking bastard has been at the bottom of the screen for what seems like my entire adult life. I do not understand the appeal of this computer-generated sack of shit. What the hell is the deal with the Fox NFL Robot?

I’ve been watching football off and on for 20 years or so and it seems like this fucker has only been around the last five or six years. In that time I’ve watched games with dozens of people and I have yet to find anyone that isn’t annoyed by the useless CG robot dancing and hitting baseballs and getting attacked by whatever FOX is promoting that week.

I just don’t get it. What the fuck does this cheesy douche have to do with football, or anything else for that matter? Wikipedia informs me that his name is “Cleatus the Fox Sports Robot”. At least Fox can distance itself somewhat from that awful name – he was named by some idiot fan.

Oh jesus, you can even buy an action figure of this thing. I guess I could understand if Fox was sending them out for free as promotional material or something, but what kind of moron would actually spend money on one? If I caught my kid playing with one of these things, he’d be packed off to fat camp for daddy’s chubby little secret in no time.

Hold on while I stretch my robotic neck and point at the camera. Now Let me jump up and down now before I start hitting baseballs into the distance.

Woo hoo! Sports robot!

What is the fucking deal?!

    Wow man! Get off it. Its just a CGI gag for fox. Is it really THAT annoying to get all huffy about it? BTW if you had any “clever sense” to you, you would realize the name Cleatus is a play on words. What kind of shoes do most sports require? If you can’t figure that out, then I understand why you wrote this blog in the first place.

    If you watch a lot of football, obviously the “ewww it’s cute, get over it” bunch doesn’t, after seeing this aggrivating p.o.s. 57 times on a single Sunday afternoon… I’d like to beat the shit out of the tech-nerd shit that thought this up.

    Roughly one year later and it’s still forehead-smacking stupid. It’s just…what the hell does a robot have to do sports? Just dumb.

    Unfreekin stupid robot. What idiot kid or Silicon Valley sad nerd needs to see that distracting digital clown on his TV when watching Sunday football? Recommendation: turn on Scooby Doo or something similar and help us fix this demographic ratings marketing mishap!
