    Default Bob Costas is an insufferable turd

    This was insane - guns don't kill people, people kill people. BTW COSTAS, he could have killed himself and that poor woman a thousand other ways... O J didn't use a gun.


    http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2...c073224431.txt
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — NBC broadcaster Bob Costas used his halftime segment on "Sunday Night Football" to advocate for gun control following this weekend's murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, causing an immediate debate on social media.

    In a segment about 90 seconds long, Costas paraphrased and quoted extensively from a piece by Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock.

    After praising the column, Costas said: "In the coming days, Jovan Belcher's actions and their possible connection 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."

    Belcher shot and killed Perkins, the mother of his 3-month-old daughter, on Saturday morning, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in the parking lot of the team's practice facility.

    The online reaction to Costas' segment was swift, with many people criticizing the broadcaster for expressing his personal views on a program meant for entertainment.

    I think he's fantastic but anytime you weigh in on political topics like that you'll get people complaining. Up here we have the opposite with a conservative sports tv figure (Don Cherry) who makes his political opinions on tv and its the left who wastes time on message boards complaining.

    Chris Benoit strangled his entire family before offing himself.

    It's not like guns are the only way people get killed. Domestic disputes turning deadly are as old as humanity itself. Whether it's a rock, knife, or a gun, just because the technology changes doesn't make the act itself any different.

    Just curious but did OJ use a gun to "allegedly" kill Nicole and her boy toy?

    I hate the elf Bob Costas just because he is such a pretentious asshole. Should go back to making toys for Santa

    just saw the Don Cherry biopic on CBC last month......enjoyable movie, but as a broadcaster, I have to say, sports is supposed to be our refuge and entertainment, some things you just have to keep separated....

    as long as the issue is effectively ignored by the pro-gun side of the argument, you'll continue to get people talking about it. Having access to a gun makes these incidents much more likely to happen. Would this incident not have happened without a gun? I don't know. No one likely knows. But it is one of drawbacks of the gun culture in America.

    Grapes (Don Cherry's nickname) has done a good job wrapping himself in the flag that makes him very hard to go after. Most of the time he talks about non-hockey stuff it's pro military stuff, and usually just talking about how "beautiful" the men and women are who lost their lives fighting overseas. Although he has gotten in trouble when he's gone after the French and European players in general.

    You seem to contradict your own argument here. You argue it makes it easier, but then admit that no one knows if it would have happened anyway, with or without a gun. That's my point; This type of thing has happened before and will happen again with or without guns. Blaming the tool rather than the person using it is misguided IMO, so when Bob Costas uses this incident to wrongly portray this as an incident caused by guns--rather than domestic violence--he's being an idiot.

    Besides, the only solution to this type of situation is ban all guns which violates our nation's Bill of Rights in the Constitution, so it's a non-starter.

    Well if the European and French players would stop playing like a bunch of pussies then Don wouldn't have to keep them in check

    I didn't contradict it all. 1 person knows if this would have happened without gun access and we can't ask him. All I'm saying is having access to firearms is likely to increase use of them. Just like building a casino in your area will likely increase gambling.

    Or maybe the incidents never happen at all.
