the problems with Bob Costas are a) he is ignorant about 2nd Amendment issues. b) he can't grasp the idea of there being a time and a place for everything. if you are a sports fan and you see/hear the sports reporter going on a political rant, that takes the fun out of watching the sport. it also makes the sports reporter the focus, not the sport they are reporting on. I am surprised that after the Dallas Cowboys tragedy, he did not go on an activist rant saying we need to ban vehicles and/or go back to the bad old days of Prohibition. if I were a sports fan, I would not watch NBC Sports.
