Posted on 12/02/2012 7:09:41 PM PST by GreaterSwiss
Trying to watch Dallas vs Philadelphia football game. Just watched announcer gave an anti-gun rant. Why is this allowed? Turned off TV.
Heard it here after flipping over from The Walking Dead. Liberals don’t let a good tragedy go to waste it seems.
Talked about the Chiefs player shooting himself and said football wasn’t responsible but guns.. Referenced Jason Whitlock’s column..
Costas using the captive football audience to go after gun ownership. Un-American!!
Steroids for $100, Alex.
Those darn guns..if only Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman had a bulletproof vest OJ couldn’t have killed them..oh wait..I forgot..it wasn’t a gun..it was a KNIFE
It was Bob Costas who went on his anti gun rant..figures..hey can’t blame the POS who shot his girlfriend in front of her mother before being a coward and killing himself..nah can’t blame him..have to blame the gun
Costas agreeing with a piece by Jason Whitlock about if the player that killed his wife and himself didn’t have a gun they would both be alive. Costas is a tool.
Bob Costas blaming the availability of handguns caused the death of the KC Football LB and his girlfriend. Thing is, Belcher could have killed his GF with a knife and then stabbed himself, taken pills or driven his car into something. Bob Costas needs to get another face lift and retire.
Doesn’t idiot Costas realize an athlete the caliber of an NFL linebacker could have killed her with his bare hands just as easily. The gun was NO FACTOR.
It’s NBC. I can’t stand Costas and his liberal crap either.
A clear violation of the Political Editorializing Rule. These liberals are nothing but criminals. The FCC will see nothing wrong with what the idiot Costas had to say.
NBC is really gonna feel some heat over this, I predict.
Saw the same thing... Typical Liberal response... It’s the guns fault!
Hey Bob Costas (You little communist) the player who shot his girlfriend and them himself would have beaten her with a tire iron or ran his car into a bridge if the gun wasn’t available! Stick to sports MORON! I don’t care about your opinion about guns!
Same here. Costas can kiss my ass. I went looking for a good Duck Dynasty on the DVR instead.
Dallas, ..... you are on your own, tonight.
Write NBC and let them know what you think of them attacking the Bill Of Rights. THE PEOPLE’S RIGHTS.
I caught it and was about to start a thread.
Bob Costas starts out by moaning how some people have said that the murder/suicide made some people say “Well, that puts sports in the proper perspective”
He then drones on about some unknown news guy (from KC?) who wrote a blistering anti-gun article.
Costas ends by saying something to the effect that if the guy didn’t have a gun, two people would be alive now.
That dwarf has always really, really disturbed me.
But you have to expect the liberal press to use this event to their maximum advantage. Proof that they don’t really have a hint or a clue at all about what went down or is going on around them!
>> Doesnt idiot Costas realize an athlete the caliber of an NFL linebacker could have killed her with his bare hands just as easily. The gun was NO FACTOR.
In other words, guns turn NFL linebackers into murderers?
I love football. I’m not turning off a good game because of Bob Costas’ idiocy. I WILL, however, be making a list of sponsors I intend to avoid buying from. Toyota, Cialis, NBC programs.
Who watches NFL games anymore? My thugs against your thugs with the MSM as the refs..garbage. Go do things with your kids or grandkids or wifey..turn off the damn tube and get a life.
The liberal mindset..NOTHING, NOTHING is ever your fault, its always someone elses fault..hey let’s blame the gun..not the guy who actually murdered his girlfriend in front of her mother and baby, nah let’s not blame him..let’s blame the gun..or the knife, or his bare hands, or the car..or anything else except the actual KILLER who I hope is burning in hell right now
Costas is a typical marxist POS using dead bodies to propagandize and score political points. Like Barry diverting coffins from Dover for a photo op.
Mental illness killed that woman but nothing is to be gained At the moment from pointing that out. Barry OTOH has some gun grabber stuff waiting in the wings. What a vile bunch these limousine liberals are.
Costas is trying to protect football (and his own job) by blaming guns for a murder/suicide committed by a football player. Send an e-mail to NBC.
Costas is a moron.. I wish we could complain to the FCC about that crap
I had a slew of games recorded today, I just now erased them.
Watching a real classic now, “The Long Long Trailer” Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez.
Completely lost any respect for Costas. Might as well have been Himmler stating that if people want guns they should join the SS or SA.
Any notion of personal responsiblity was totally ignored.
Umm, I thinking that if maybe the wife had a gun then maybe she would still be alive?
Costas went on a 10 minute anti-gun screed. “If he would not have had a gun, both he and his girlfriend would be alive.” - WHAT? By that logic, we need to ban football as well, since it leads to higher instances of violence against women. Is Costas prepared to push for the death of his bread and butter, the NFL? And has he never heard of knives, bats, pills, fire, or carbon monoxide? I guess this is our world now with the adults in this country now being the minority.
Has nothing to do with the NFL or watching football, so your annoyance with TV is not germane. It’s about openly advocating keeping people from having handguns.
Yes, he is, and ultimately a Comcast employee.
By not offering someone else a chance to rebut his idiotic rant he did violate the law. Of course the criminals running the FCC right now would never enforce the law or their rules against a liberal nut job. I just wonder if Costas was not working with some Obama brownshirts on this moronic diatribe.
NBC should talk. A lot more football players (and thus their spouses and kids) have had their lives RUINED by the concussions that NBC seems to saviour - in the name of profits.
(p.s., this is how you hit the libs back)
the only real difference the gun made was him committing suicide...
Another stat that people don’t talk about is that people that cohabitate have a higher rate domestic violence than people who marry. Under costas logic, cohabiation should be outlawed.
I missed that..watching finale of the BEST show on TV next to Blue Blods which was Boardwalk Empire.
I am now turning off the Dallas game. What a total idiot CostASS is!
As Homer Simpsons said,” My, my..what all these stars don’t know!”
I think Costas needs to go to Chicago, where they have the strongest gun control laws in the country..I think 7 people died last night in Chicago from you guessed it..GUNS..but..but..how can this be..Chicago has such a harsh gun control law..also any sports fan knows that Jason Whitlock is a douche bag
Yep, the ahole who told his audience of the “failed” Bush presidency, but no comment on Obama’s epic fail, has now gone after guns. Wanna bet that he either owns one or uses bodyguards who have guns?
I stopped myself. NBC has decided to blame the method instead of the reason. FU NBC.
Any mention of the guy in Wyoming who used a bow and arrow to kill his father and himself??
Another smug Liberal whose answer to all ills is to take rights away from people and enslave them to government. Buzz off Costas you leftwing nut.
here are some Tweets
Hey NBC, what ads are you showing now? Oops, your idiot broadcast is blocked from my TV. Send an email, thanks.
Not my words and I don’t recall the source...
If guns kill people then;
Pencils misspell words
cars make people drive drunk
& spoons made Rosie O’Donnell fat!
I wonder how much playing with a brain concussion and being on pain medication contributed to this? There are a lot of “legal” drugs you can get if you are in the NFL.
How about this, Mr. Costas: SHE should have packed.
Can't blame a Black Man for His Actions, have to blame the Gun.
He could have killed her with his bare hands..have to ban hands..he could have ran her over with his car, have to ban cars..he could have punched her so hard she died on the spot, ban punching..just imagine if knives had been banned OJ would still be doing movies
They’re getting nailed on the Sunday Night Football FB page. It’s ugly.
