Bob Costas had his idiotic rant last Sunday following the incident in which a KC Chief player murdered his girlfriend and then killed himself. His focus was the “gun culture” of America and if people weren’t allowed to have guns then the lives of Belcher and his girlfriend wouldn’t have been lost.
Well, there has been another tragic incident involving NFL players. Read excerpt below.
According to Irving police, Brent’s car was traveling at a high rate of speed on a State Highway 114 service road before it hit the outside curb at approximately 2:30 a.m. The car flipped at least one time and skidded an estimated 900 feet before coming to rest in the middle of the service road, police said.
Brent was trying to drag Brown from the vehicle, a Mercedes, which was on fire when officers arrived on the scene. Officers quickly put out the small blaze. Brown was unresponsive and taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said officers conducted a field sobriety test on Brent and arrested him. The charge was upgraded after Brown was pronounced dead.

I am interested in Costas’ stance on this. He will likely talk about it as a tragedy, which it is. But will he go on a rant about how professional athletes and the general public shouldn’t be allowed to consume alcohol or drive cars, ever. Which results in more deaths in the US, automobile accidents or firearms owned by private citizens? If people weren’t allowed to drive cars at all then Jerry Brown wouldn’t have died, right? If Bob Costas isn’t a hypocrite and applies the logic (or lack thereof) he used last weekend to this situation then that is the conclusion he should come to, right?
That type of thinking is moronic, just like Costas’ rationale last Sunday. He is nothing more than a mouthpiece of the powers that be that want private citizens disarmed so they can’t protect themselves.
