Post Bob Costas
In my opinion, Bob Costas is one the last few remaining true sports journalists. I'm sure he will weigh in on the Dolphins controversy before the Sunday night broadcast. I wonder what his take will be.

Whatever his take is, the fanboys will still ignore it. They tuned him out and denigrated him regarding his opinion of the Washington R*****ns, and they'll do it with the Dolphins.

Wow, so because I have issues with potential bullying against someone who may have a social disorder such as autism, I'm now a Dolphin-hater? **** you, **** you and the horse you rode in on.

And as I said repeatedly, I keep using the word "if" because we really don't know what's going on. I don't know, but guess what: YOU DON'T KNOW EITHER!!!! So don't test me, fella. I will not have my fandom challenged because of some meathead like you.

Mr. Costas probably has an opinion like others do. Not sure if he will have more information than anyone else.

Whatever, dude. You just keep reminding me of the neighborhood bully who can't wait for kids with special needs to get off the short bus just so you can get your jollies by beating up the defenseless and stealing all of their stuff.

Yes, it will indeed be just an opinion.

He may not have MORE information, but some people are better at putting all of the available information together and presenting their opinion logically. I don't always agree with him, but I respect him more than the sensationalistic garbage that has been flung so far.

I don't think Costas was ripped for his opinion so much as the fact that people don't want to hear political opinions when they tune into football. Even people who agree with Costas's opinion seemed to prefer that topic of conversation be left to political discussion shows or the news.

I once enjoyed listening to Costas, but lately he has grown less interesting with his agendas speeches..

I couldn't disagree much more. I don't even think he's a sports jounalist, bro. This is nothing against you of course but you're the first person I've ever heard talk about Bob in a positive light hahaha I mean that. Costas always comes across so full of himself & despite not making any event more significant he keeps getting gigs. I have such a hard time watching the Olympics because he talks so much & we see so relatively little of the events. & his gun control speech . . . come on!

Any way, you wanna know what the most racist thing that occurred in this football season is? - Bob Costas talking about the Redskins.

Native Americans were polled about the names Seminoles & Redskins and 90% said they have no problem with the names & they are not offended by them. In fact they are culturally relevant because the more fear you give to a word, the more power it has to harm (see Paula Dean).
So Costas takes this topic upon himself so he can say "Look, Im not sure you're able to understand this but you Indians should be offended by whats going on here. Maybe you think its not a big deal but I, 'the loud, elite, rich, white guy' is here to take care of this for you, since you're not able to do it for yourself."

I wouldn't mind if I never saw Bob Costas again. & I'm certainly not going to listen to anything he says about our team. Especially because he won't be reporting with the full story, or even the facts as we know them, he'll be speaking from an angle that gets controversy & ratings. He's a transparent gimmick.

DPhins4me: It sounds like your dating yourself with close to the era of my growing up watching Bob Costas & Bryant Gumbel. Those two back in the 80's were my very favorite when doing the football highlights and interviews.


Steve Zissou: I can see where you have less of an interest to listen to Costas now as he does tend to speak on very high agenda items, but years ago in my opinion, he was about the best. He may chime in on Sunday from that high level view of all the nonsense the Dolphins are experiencing.

His gun control rant is what got me pissed off at him. He's a little rat. Can't stand him anymore and completely agree with you.

I'm not a big fan of Costa's reporting football.......he needs to stick to Horse Racing & the Olympics. They need to get him off Sunday Night Football, his preaching editorials do not belong on a football sportscast.

I'm sure he'll have a lot to say about Incognito and how this is a reflection on society, maybe he'll drag in gun reform, gay rights and the Middle East into the segment. He's gotten entirely too enamored with himself.

I am dated. When Costas is covering sports he is at his best. He is not to the point of Keith Oldermann ( Who I use to really enjoy until he informed me how stupid he actually happens to be )

Costas is on the verge of ruining his career. Every time he goes on one of his political rants, I turn the channel. I actually turned the game off when he went on talking about the Redskins name. Sorry, political correctness willl be one of the nails put in the coffin of this great nation.

No, logical conclusion. I "have bloodthirst for this franchise", therefore I must be a troll.

I thought he had ban power, would try to label me as a troll, and thus ban me over said "trolling". Now that I see he doesn't, nevermind.

There's nothing to go back and forth about. That guy has anger management issues.
