    Here's Costas's response today. It looks to me like he is partly blaming his audience for mis-interpreting his failure to completely flesh out what he was trying to say....

    I think we correctly interpreted just exactly what he had to say.

    I'm just grateful that the rabid hold that pro football once had on me was eternally demolished as a result of the '82 football strike. Don't watch it any more. Don't miss it a bit. Avoiding nitwit announcers and commentators is a nice bonus apparently.

    Never heard of Bob Costa until this story first broke. Don't want to know any more about him either.

    I think Costas used a half page to say "I should have said more, and I meant every word of it." That has to be the lamest explanation of a journalistic faux-pas I have ever seen.

    Costas needs to hire Obama's speechwriters. They are much better at covering up "misspeaks."

    Right. First he says it was generally well-received (even tho he's going on damage control now...including The O'Reilly Factor tonight which should be fun), then he says he might have given the audience too much credit assuming they would UNDERSTAND him.

    He essentially says his commentary was too nuanced for us troglodyte masses to understand. He just insulted us again!
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    ...And so I saw what Jason Whitlock had written and a portion of what he wrote resonated with me and given the time that I had, I thought that was on aspect that I could put out there and maybe, maybe I gave the audience too much credit,...

    Apparently he gave us too much credit for being smart enough to understand what he was trying to say! Again, it's everyone else's fault not his....or maybe it was really the microphones fault!

    if hank williams jr got fired for dissing obama while he was off the clock, i'd say this is ground for termination too.

    I highly doubt there are even remotely close to enough people to stop watching football over this, let's be real...
