NBC's Bob Costas is a key face of the NFL. It's not his job to be a spokesperson for the league, but as the man who hosts football's highest-rated game every week, he's one of the most important figures NFL fans are exposed to throughout the season.
Costas, though, doesn't pull punches where Roger Goodell might prefer it. He pontificated about gun control during a Sunday Night Football soliloquy last December and dove into the controversial Redskins name debate with another essay last month.
Now, the legendary sportscaster has entered a whole new realm of football-related antagonism by stating on a Slate.com podcast that he would tell his kids to play a sport other than the one he covers each Sunday night.
Here, courtesy of the Washington Post, is what Costas apparently told a viewer while recording the podcast Monday in New York.no comments
