Costas Not Asking For Alcohol Ban?

13 posts in this topic

I don't know if anyone watched Sunday Night Football, but I gotta say after last week, I'm surprised he didn't call for a ban on alcohol and/or cars.

Is it just me, or is he vastly overrated as a reporter? MAybe it's just because he works for a cable network, so he gets more exposure than most sports reporters.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Believe me, we talk about this schmuck at work all the time as there are several people at work who are avid hunters. When he made his comments about guns, live on the air during a prime-time game, needless to say -- they were irate.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Then again, I have my opinions on the matter but it would only spark debate.[/i][/font]

No clue. Watching a movie. What was said?

After the KC Chief (Belcher I believe?) shot and killed his girlfriend and himself, Costas said on the Sunday night game that week that guns should be banned. The OP is referring to the Cowboys' DUI / death, noting that since alcohol / a car killed someone, they should also be banned.

Just crazy people. Not gonna get political. If anything should be banned it's crazy, sick and twisted people But my heart goes out to the victims and their families in Connecticut. I'm still thankful that my nephew is safe. He just started kindergarden this year at 5. I don't even wanna imagine if he was harmed in any way. I hope all that have kids on this site never have to go through what those families went through in Connecticut. That's the worst kind of evil.

That's how I felt, With an 8 year old and 1 1/2 year old daughters. Mental health is sorely lacking in this country (although I could tell you that from having worked in a prison for 5 years), while the access to guns is not the sole problem it is way too easy to get a hold of these weapons.
