    During the halftime show of NBC's Sunday Night Football, Bob Costas commented on the Javon Belcher murder/suicide incident. Quoting a KC writer, he seemingly advocated greater control, if not outright banning, of handguns.

    Thoughts? Do you think he chose the correct forum, Sunday Night Football, to use a tragedy as a political statement or should he just stick to football when on Sunday Night Football?

    He gets paid to be a SPORTSCASTER, correct?
    But if he wanted to make a political statement, perhaps he should have talked about the dangers of domestic violence.

    Instead of bringing up the tragedy of domestic voilence, he talks gun control. If Belcher would have stabbed her and himself what would he have said?? Knife control?

    It was the wrong forum. He needs to stick to what he's paid to do and spare us his political views!

    This and that and that and this.

    I was hanging out at my house with the wife and a buddy and Costas was giving his normal hokey halftime comments and I heard something about "perspective" per the Belcher thing and then he asserted, using the words of another, that Belcher and that woman would be alive if not for the handgun.

    Which is ridiculous. Belcher could have easily beat the woman to death. He was mad enough to shoot her 8 or 9 times in front of his mom which tells me he would be mad enough, and easily have the ability, to beat the woman to death.

    That's my opinion, too. It was the wrong forum. Without knowing the politics of, say, Chris Collinsworth, wouldn't people be pissed if he advocated for less gun-control? Wouldn't man say that was the wrong forum?

    Or how about if an NFL player was killed by a drunk driving illegal immigrant? If one of the guys on SNF said, "if the US had better border control, this NFL player would still be alive today", there would be a fucking ruckus!

    Yeah, Belcher was pissed off something fierce.

    Hell, if I were Costas I would have said something like this: "If Javon Belcher had worn a condom, or gotten a vasectomy, and gone out, played the field, bird-dogged everything and anything he wanted, had fun, and waited to knock a bitch up after his NFL career was done, both Belcher and this woman would still be alive today."
