    Costas is digging his own grave now; should have shut his trap before & after; idiot

    Costas relayed an anecdote relayed to him by Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. Dungy asked 80 football players at training camp if they owned a gun. Sixty-five hands went up.

    "Even if all those guns were obtained legally, you canít have 65 guys in their 20s Ė aggressive young men subject to impulses, without something bad happening," Costas said.

    It is quite obvious the man isn't very intelligent; he is a sports broadcaster after all. I love people like him, because they make the "gun nuts" appear sane and rational.

    He has simply bought into a lot of the anti-gun mythology, but has a pulpit from which to preach his ignorance.

    Simply stop watching any programming of which he is a part, and let the network know that you (and, we hope, millions of others) won't watch his boobery any more. Maybe that'll motivate them to stop letting him use their soapbox for his uninformed rants.

    Personally, I'll be turning off all of his programming.

    Easy for me I am not a fan of organized sports and would much rather read a book.

    Costas is anti-gun. He meant exactly what he meant, it is the tool that is to blame for the murder/suicide, not the murder. Another liberal TV personality regurgitating his liberal views.

    Costas doubles down on his comments

    http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/oreill...ture-comments/

    So many inaccurate statements. He must receive the Brady Bunch Newsletter. he likely contributes to the Brady Bunch.
    O'Reilly ain't much better than Costas other than he desires to carry.

    That'll frighten a lot of people more than learning that you have a house full of guns.

    But then I rather enjoy frightening morons...

    Costa originally was trying to back track....however, he is now doubling down on the BradyBunch montra.

    He will look good to the BB and Hollywood/Liberal leftist group. He's entitled to his opinion....however, to use his platform to espouse his thoughts was wrong.

    Wonder how the network would respond if people started asking for someone to be allowed a response on air during the next game to what he said?

    We all speak of liberty and freedom like we are the only ones that know the truth and the right path. But if we expect everyone to accept and follow our path and to accept our truth and want to force it upon them then that is no longer liberty or freedom. It is slavery. I believe in liberty for all. Regardless of their political views, religion, race, sex, etc.

    It's obvious we need to outlaw the NFL due to the obvious link between criminals and being in the NFL.
