Here is the quote of what Costas's rant said:
Writer Jason Whitlock, with whom I do not always agree but 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 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.
If you look at what Stan posted,, I wonder why there wasnt a direct lambasting towards the leauge dealing with injury, and the effects from them.
Clearly the kid was troubled, had drinking problem,, taking way to many pain killers..... But Costas wants to USE THE TRDGEDY,, to drive his political views towards a National audience.. NBC,, And SNF should be ashamed of themselves.... The NFL should be really embarrassed from thes Guys rant during one of their games.... Those games are for entertainment puposes.. I dont give a Flip about Costas's political views..
I am more concerned for the grieving families, and the little one who lost both parents....
Bob Costas insulted everyone involved...A simple request for prayer would have done a lot more good...
The more I watch Football... Its getting to the point where I enjoy it more,,, if I just turn the sound compleatly off,,, and watch the game..
