So, Costas is a sports announcer. I don't follow football, so I had to Google it.

Frankly, I don't see any threat to us from this guy. He gets tons of money to comment on a game. Nice work if you can get it. He's using a senseless tragedy to generate material for his job, nothing more.

I've never seen or heard anything so irresponsible on prime time tv in my life.
I was active in the 1990's, when the US Attorney General was on television painting us all up as a bunch of homicidal nutjobs. I got worried about that. Costas? Nah.

Heck, I remember the PMRC hearings on music lyrics in the 1980's. Tipper Gore was doing the primetime circuit, describing in excruciating detail the deviant acts being described in songs she certainly didn't want our children to hear.

I swear, if people devoted 1% of the attention they spend on sport to politics, this country would be a better place.
