NBC sportscaster Bob Costas used his weekly monologue on Sunday Night Football to discuss the fallout of the tragedy in Kansas City, urging viewers to move past the cliched coverage of the perspective gleaned from the news that linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then himself Saturday morning.
Costas focused much of his monologue on a column by Fox Sports Jason Whitlock, which argued that current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy. Costas said that although he often doesnt agree with Whitlock, he found his argument to be spot on this time.

If Bob Costas didn’t have his head up his @$$, he would be able to breath.
Disgusting use of a tragedy to make a pandering political statement...
But it’s NBC, so it’s to be expected...
Costas is a fool
if he used a knife, what would he be saying?
If Bob Costas wasn’t a shameless liberal thug, he would have some decency & not try to politicize a sad time.
But, wait, these are leftists-—so being morally bankrupt is just another day at the office
If Ted Kennedy didn’t possess a car...
Apparently one doesn't need to have common sense to get a degree from Northwestern U. Bob and Whitlock have made fools of themselves.
And if Costas wasn’t such a committed Lie-beral, we might get some real dialog on the real problem here.
Case in point: Local fish wrap and birdcage liner doing its annual beg-a-thon for those in need was highlighting a former postal worker and “single mother of 3”. What struck me is that she and her “babies” had FOUR different surnames. I understand in this age of woman’s glib that some women choose to retain their birth surname after marriage, but each of the children had different surnames.
Sounds like her baby daddies didn’t have the desire (or ability?) to maintain any kind of relationship with their progeny after the fact.
IMHO, it’s stories like this that are met with a shrug by the general public (instead of an any kind of shame) that are behind crap like the tragedy in Kansas City.
And if Nicole Simpson had posession of a gun she might be alive today!
Ask O.J. about that, willya?
If Bob’s significant other had a gun, we might not have to listen to his drivel.
"If Bob Costas didn't wear a toupee he wouldn't have hair."
If Kasandra Perkins had one, She would likely still be alive.
And take away steak knives and hammers and hatchets and and glass bottles and screwdrivers and staples and lamps and frying pans and food processors and don’t forget medications.
Oh and 16oz drinks and mediocre liberal sportscasters.
A man doesn't need to use a knife to kill another comparably-sized man, let alone a woman. In real life, a single punch could do it, which is why so many guys in physical altercations are so surprised when the people they were pummeling end up in the morgue.
NBC = Nothing But Crap
Bob Costas gun rant video. All that hair dye is seeping in and making Bob goofy.
minority sports figures just shouldn’t own guns, everybody else is ok with them
