Using that overworked word…UNBELIEVABLE is not so great but the comments by anti-gunner Bob Costas on NBC yesterday to a several- million member audience are truly unbelievable. That any person can be so stupid as to believe what he said— to say nothing of saying it for such a huge group of viewers on national TV during an NFL football game.
Costas could not control himself when talking about the murder/suicide of the Kansas City Chiefs football player..first the murder of his girlfriend and mother of his 3 month old baby.then his dramatic suicide in front of some KC coaches.
What would Bob have to say yesterday if this footabll player had used his hands to choke his girlfriend to death? That human hands should be outlawed and controlled by the government? How about murdering with a knife…..take all knives..butcher, bread, paring, table knives out of the culture????
Or if the man had driven a vehicle over his girlfriend and then driven it into a concrete embankment, outlaw all cars and other vehicles that are powered and have wheels??????
Bob Costas is another crazy Liberal gun-control advocate— as if banning all guns would stop all murders, suicides and crimes. A person who wishes to murder somebody has multiple ways to accomplish that murder..it does not take gun to do the job but Bob Costas foolishly grabbed onto that particular murder/suicice to trumpet the anti-gun position. Costas is UNBELIEVABLE in his own blind stupidity and ignorance.

It was very convenient for Costas to go off on his anti-gun rant so he would not have to address what the NFL does to its players through the brutality of this “sport”. The Kansas City player who committed murder and suicide has had multiple head injuries from playing in the NFL. He was on pain – killing drugs and God-Only-Knows what other drugs he has used in his NFL career.
Has he used to steroids to build up his huge body? Probably. Do steroids cause side effects like raging anger????
Yes, they do.

What is truly UNBELIEVABLE is that more things like this crime has not happened many times considering that NFL teams and coaches and conmmenters like Bob Costas, who glorifies the violence of this sport….are all guilty of turning NFL players into latent Monsters.
How many of those players live with the horrible consequences of their years in the NFL???? Everlasting headaches from concussions and other serious head injuries; ruined joints like hips, elbows, knees, ankles that have to be dealt with surgically for the rest of a players’ life….? A mentality that has been fostered that carries over and causes brutality to spouses, girlfriends and children and other family members.
How can ordinary human beings separate out the brutality of their game from the rest of their lives?
How many “athletes” have we read of who have attacked other people, especially in bars and taverns???? Alcohol usage coupled with all the other bad things NFL players “use” has caused injury and death in barroom brawls…to say nothing of other places like homes.
Bob Costas is barking up his own chosen tree….one that is as ridiculous as Costas himself.
What a Fool!!!! And now he has revealed what a FOOL he truly is on national TV on Sunday.
He ought to be taken off the air for his insolence and stupidity…but watch..he won’t be. He will go on being stupid and unbelievable for more years …unless he gets into a brawl with a drugged up, pain wracked NFL player in a bar after a game.
——————————-Late Addition: read this in American Thinker: “We interrupt this football game to bring you and anti-gun rant”

It is about Bob Costas and his strange political rant as a sports commentator (or is he?)

I am a retired elementary "schoolmarm"..I was a school librarian/media director for nearly 25 years before I retired in 2004. Naturally one of my fondest things is reading! I also love reading aloud to young children, something I did for so many years with amazing results; every child wants to read the same book as the teacher read!!!! I also am fond of my gardens...both flower beds and vegetable plots. I love being outdoors....mowing the lawn after my husband has done so with a big lawn tractor...I trim with my small power mower! I have a rain barrel to collect rainwater for plants! I have an old fashioned "pedal" bike I love to ride. I enjoy going to a Silver Sneakers class at a community center about 20 miles from my country home on what I call the "Buffalo Bluff" which overlooks the Buffalo River and its valley below. I LOVE to write and am working on a book for my grandkids so they will always know more about Grandma when she was still "kickin" and "had all her marbles"!!!!

  1. I don’t watch football. Only golf puts me to sleep faster on Sunday afternoons. The comments at ABC News on this moron’s screed are running at least 5 to 1 against him. There are a few gun control zealots that post on these stories. One, in particular, would be banned and be back quite soon using a different name but the same old BS. I didn’t see any familiar names today.

    1. He ought to be disagreed with…his rant on anti gun issues was totally inappropriate,,but then Costas seems to think he is so special he can say whatever crosses his feeble mind.

  2. I think that both football and boxing should be outlawed. Both are violent and can cause very bad injuries and even death.

  3. I really don’t care what Bob Costas said, but what is amazing is the predictable knee-jerk reaction from the right wing. Anytime anyone says one word against gun violence, the right wingers goes crazy.

    By the way, a gun is totally different than a car or a pair of hands. A gun only has one purpose – to kill or injure a living creature. I can’t drive a gun to work. A gun can’t play my guitar. A gun can’t put food in my mouth.

      1. I didn’t say that there were not other means of killing or injuring someone. My only point is that a gun is not equal to things like cars and hands.

    1. Cobra..Bob Costas was way out of line in ranting about gun control when his assignment was to comment on a football game on Sunday. But Lefty LIbs know no bounds when they began to unload their propaganda.

      1. I think the same thing can be said for right wingers. I think the knee-jerk reaction to Costas speaks volumes.

  4. Another case of recto-cranial inversion. There are millions of shots fired every year at clay pigeons and paper targets, hardly living creatures.

    1. Ok, so I will ignore the personal insult, and issue a correction: A gun has 2 purposes: 1. Killing and injuring living creatures, 2. Wasting ammo.

    1. Wow another good one from the WordMaster
      (Remrafdn) hopelophobe..good description of the Obama acolytes!!!! Did anyone notice that improved unemployment numbers were due to over 460 thousand people dropping out of the labort market…the are NOT hope-lophoves any more.

    2. I have exactly zero respect for people like remrafdn who constantly find it necessary to use name calling and insults to make their point. I don’t agree with very much of what Kay has to say, but at least it is fairly respectful most of the time, and doesn’t resort to the childish name calling.

  5. We continue to be exasperated by the view, apparently gaining momentum in certain circles, that armed robbery is okay as long as nobody gets hurt! The proper solution to armed robbery is a dead robber, on the scene.

    1. I agree Rem….the gun violence so decried by Cobra and others (Bob Costas) is usually done by criminals or mentally unbalanced people like that KC football player with a history of multiple head injuries and other issues from his past…who knows how he was raised?????
      To blanket blame guns is incredibly stupid and is being done by unthinking people who have an agenda.

      1. Let me make something clear – I don’t blame “guns” in particular. What I blame is the mentality in our society that if there is a problem, violence is the solution, and guns just happen to be the easiest and most convenient way to accomplish that. And that pro-violence attitude comes directly from the radical right wing gun freaks, the NRA, and the Republican pro-war policies.

  6. “knee-jerk reaction from the right wing. Anytime anyone says one word against gun violence, the right wingers goes crazy.” Pot, meet Kettle.

    1. There is a huge difference between “right winger” and your terms like “moron”, “recto-cranial inversion”, and “hopelophobe”. “Right winger” or “left winger” is a typical and non-insulting description for right or left wing people.

    2. I wonder if Bob Costas went on a liberal rant this Sunday over the death of an NFL player in a car crash in a vehicle driven by another very drunk NFL player.
      Should we ban cars and alcohol too in addition to hand guns Bobby Boy??
