The Wrong Platform for Costas

December 4, 2012 - Larry Claypool
Bob Costas now says that his comments made about gun control during a recent NFL Sunday Night Football game were a ‘mistake’. Yes the popular NBC sportscaster inserted his shiny Bertuli shoe into his mouth after a rant/comments related to Kansas City Chiefs Jovan Belcher’s murder-suicide last Saturday. Yes Belcher’s method of madness involved a firearm. Costas chose the nationally televised NFL game (at halftime) to offer his personal opinion about guns. I witnessed the commentary and immediately shook my head in disbelief. That was NOT the platform for those comments, I thought. I was pissed, and so should you. As I expected Costas has taken a lot of heat for his rant. He’s backed down a little too. Some say he should be fired. I’m not sure about that, but he should be reprimanded — sternly. The NBC network should take a hit too for his actions too — in the wallet. The NRA and its members are a powerful force. Costas and NBC will soon find out.
