what a little pompous ass.....why didn't he talk about the poor father shot with a bow and arrow a couple of days ago in Wyoming?.....jerk of all jerks

gee who would even think these blessed football players with their drugs, their arrogance, their elevated social status where they can do no wrong, plus many of them having feral upbringings...who would have thought one of them might be violent...

Mark my words, if Costas life were ever in danger he would be begging for a gun..probably doesn’t need one with all the ARMED security he has around him..yeah Bobby, they are ARMED..maybe he should tell his security team to just carry a fork and spoon instead

This is getting wide play. Costas just jumped the dolphin...

The idiots at NBC prefer a gut knife madman than a firearm madman. One problem NBC. The right to KEEP and BEAR arms is a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.

I do believe the government should PAY for this right. What say you BOB?

I figured someone would already have this up.

Turn off your TV and set top box if you’re watching the game. Hit them in the ratings.

And email the NFL.

Contact them here:

http://www.nfl.com/contact-us

Be respectful, but tell them it is entirely inappropriate for their idiot broadcaster to be making political anti-gun diatribes over the dead bodies of a troubled player and his murdered girlfriend.

Javon struggled with prescription pills, alcohol and concussions. Lets also ban pills, alcohol and the NFL should become a flag football league to prevent concussions. It should also be illegal to live with your girlfriend. So many issues here we are lucky to have Bob Costas to straighten them out for us.

Here’s the entire quote:

“Well you knew it was coming. In the aftermath of the nearly unfathomable events in Kansas City, that most mindless of sports clichés was heard yet again: “Something like this really puts it all in perspective.”

Well, if so, that sort of perspective has a very short shelf life. Since we will inevitably learn about the perspective we have supposedly again regained the next time ugly reality intrudes upon our games.

Please. Those that need tragedies to continually recalibrate their sense of proportions about sports would seem to have little hope of ever truly achieving perspective. You want some actual perspective on this? Well, a bit of it comes from the Kansas City based writer Jason Whitlock, with whom I do not always agree, but who today said it so well, that we may as well just quote, or paraphrase, from the end of his article:

“Our current gun culture,” Whitlock wrote, “ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead… Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.”

In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions and their possible connections to football will be analyzed. “Who knows? But here,” wrote Jason Whitlock, “is what I believe: if Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”

The second half is next.”

Well, it’s a lot more likely that Jovan Belcher would be alive, anyway. Without a gun, his options for killing his girlfriend would be: 1) stabbing her, 2) strangling her, 3) beating her to death, 4) running her over with his car, 5) others that I can’t think of right away.

OTOH, without a gun it would have been a lot harder to off himself in front of his coaches, and he would probalby have to answer for his actions in this life along with the next.

I spent much of my business life traveling in Asia.

Muders. No guns.

But lots of knives, hammers and other implements for murder.

If there was a will, they found a gun-less way.

Bob, Bob, Bob. Guns don’t kill people Bob Costas, bullets do. Anybody knows that, Bob. You need to watch more TV, Bob.

Knives also kill people, Bob.

Just the other day Benghazi-Coward Obama allowed some former Navy Seals in Benghazi to be killed by Mortars, Bob. You probably don’t much care as you and your NBC pals voted for Benghazi-Coward Obama anyway.

Keep watching NBC and MSNBC, Bob. They will give you the proper slant on all the news that they think that you need to know about.

The NFL Network, which is owned by the NFL, ran a commercial against beating women (as if anyone is for that) starring Obama during the election campaign. Between the Rooney rule, blackballing Rush Limbaugh from ownership, I think the NFL is becoming another liberal organization.

Bob “chestnut hair” Costas probably has worse than concussions with all that toxicity flowing into his bloodstream from his hair dye.

From the accounts I have heard, the guy snapped as a result of a on-going, long-heated argument with his girlfriend [they even separated about a month ago before just getting back together].

So, seeing that he probably just lost it, if it wasn’t a gun, it woulda been a knife. If not a knife, his fists. If not his fists, a rope. If not a rope, poison ...

Take yer pick ...

IMPLEMENTS DO NOT KILL PEOPLE - PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE !!! BLAME THE KILLER !!!

Wow...just wow. Breaking news: Bob Costas has "changed his mind" after being shown the folly of his original rant and now blames the murder suicide on concussions (with an "assist" from guns), as it couldn't have anything to do with personal responsibility (since an NFL linebacker couldn't have possibly killed a person weighing less than half his weight without a gun).../s. Why are these people (Bob Costas, et al) still employed? (Rhetorical question)

I found this this morning before firing up this website...

Just another accounting of the comments made by Bob “I’m better than you clingers” Costas...

I agree with the other poster who said we need to “respectively” (well, as best you can) explain to NBC corporate, that you hope the ratings for that game (regardless of who is playing or winning at the time) went in the toilet after that assinine comment...

The benefit of this liberal/socialist diatribe is that it DOES etch the line deeper and deeper for us who DO understand the ramifications of pushing our buttons without any regard to the law of the land, you know, that pesky little thing called the Constitution, and it’s Bill of Rights...

But then again, I am sure Bob Costas doesn’t understand that side of the equation at all...
