    Couldn't agree more.

    Bob Costas took aim at ESPN yesterday -- blasting the network's decision to give the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Caitlyn Jenner as a "crass exploitation play."

    The NBC Sports star appeared on "The Dan Patrick Show" and said, "In the broad world of sports, I’m pretty sure they could’ve found someone -- and this is not anything against Caitlyn Jenner -- who was much closer actively involved in sports, who would’ve been deserving of what that award represents."



    [​IMG]


    "That’s not to say it doesn’t take some measure of personal courage to do what Caitlyn Jenner has done.

    "I think every year we look across the landscape of sports and we find prominent people and kids in high school and amateur athletes who I think more closely fit the description of what they’re looking for -- or should be looking for there."

    "I think this is just a play to pump up the audience, the way lots of things are put on television to attract eyeballs -- not because of the validity but because of whatever the kind of gawker factor is."

    I can't believe Costas, the politically correct puss in the universe, had the balls to say this.

    Of course he's correct but its a fucking ESPY who gives a shit. This is like getting upset over a MTV award. Its a meaningless award show.

    The first "collage" is priceless....it looks like Costas just banged Jenner and is having regrets! He has that contemplative...."what the fuck did I just do" look.

    award shows aren't that much of a blight on society
    they're silly--they're certainly not leading us to doom
