Bob Costas is experiencing a still growing backlash over his anti-gun comments on national television during a sports event.

Here’s what he had to say when Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were murdered.

“You’ll never be able to hear O.J. Simpsons name or even watch the great vintage footage of O.J. Simpson as one of the very greatest players who ever lived without thinking of this tragedy,” said broadcaster Bob Costas, who worked NBC’s NFL studio show with Simpson. “But thats the consequence of what happened.”

via ESPN.com: Before trial, Simpson charmed America.

Also for the record, via HuffPo – some have recently alleged Simpson is trying to cash in by selling the knife.

O.J. Simpson held on to the knife he may have used to kill his ex-wife and her friend and is now trying to sell it for a handsome price, an anonymous source told the National Enquirer.

    Instead of blaming guns, why don’t we blame our crappy culture.

    Was Jovan married to the mother of his child? No. Did he think about getting married before having kids? I don’t know. After his girlfriend got pregnant, did he offer to marry her? Not sure. Were Jovan’s parents John Belcher and Cheryl Shepard married? I don’t know.

    Maybe if the culture encouraged old, fashioned marriage instead celebrating hedonism, we would raise adults in this society instead of overgrown adolescents who in some unfortunate instances commit horrible crimes.

      Well at least you admit that you don’t know the answers to the host of questions you pose, before deciding to be a self-righteous, judgmental prick anyway.

      “Maybe if the culture encouraged old, fashioned marriage instead celebrating hedonism, we would raise adults in this society instead of overgrown adolescents who in some unfortunate instances commit horrible crimes.”

      Maybe. Maybe if we painted trees orange, and tied onions to our ears, the crops will grow higher.

      Or maybe, if this fellow didn’t have access to a gun, he wouldn’t have shot and killed his girlfriend.

        Speaking of pricks, we all heard you mumble around that one…

        If you look, moron, you’ll note that the single highest demographic applying for Texas carry permits is black women.

        Hmmm…. Could it be about baby-daddies who hurt them?

        And, note for the record, Peter breath, that a Lexus and a bridge abutment make a very fine murder/suicide weapon.

        • Patriot says:

          Wow, the gun-buying habits of Texas citizens is a remarkably irrelevant point, even for you! Of course, you can’t support – factually – any particular reason why women of color are supposedly buying lots of guns in Texas. Although, because you’re totally not a racist, you’re certain the “baby daddies” are the problem.

          • Ragspierre says:

            Certain? No, stupid. I merely note the FACT that CCP (not purchases of guns, moron) are being taken out by the people who are taking them out.

            It sure isn’t because they fear TEA Party people!

          • Ragspierre says:

            “Our ‘o’ can’t even put 7 in the board for us, but everything good bro, baby momma crazy but I have a little girl almost 3 month man and she’s a blessing, she makes me smile on the worst day,” Belcher responded.

            Text message…moron…

            I didn’t coin the phrase “baby daddy”. And culture is not race, is it, idiot?

    Maybe being friends with Bob Costas drives you to become a murderer. I see a pattern.

  3. EBL says:

    Does Bob Costas have anyone or thing to blame Benghazi on? Just wondering.

    “Bob Costas didn’t see a problem with knives, he mourned the loss of the highlight reels when colleague O.J.’s wife and friend were murdered”

    Do you think there’s a difference between guns and knives, inspector?

    • Ragspierre says:

      Do you think one makes you deader than the other, IDIOT?

      • Patriot says:

        How many people can one kill in the matter of a few seconds with a knife, genius?

        • Ragspierre says:

          Is volume your criteria, you moron? Individuals don’t count to the Collective, I understand.

          Ever see someone with a sword work when they know what they’re doing? A knife, especially with a little training, can kill as many people in a short time as a pistol can, and you never have to reload.

          What a boob.
