Costas, once the highest paid sports commentator, calls college football a “Mindless Obsession”

Bob Costas, once paid as high as $7 Million a year and a net worth of at least $45 Million as a sports commentator (Business Insider, 2019), including college football, went on CNN to seemingly rip college football as a "mindless obsession."

CNN's Don Lemon incorrectly reports the Big Ten is returning to play this weekend - it's actually next weekend - & Bob Costas calls football a "mindless obsession." Nice work @cnn. pic.twitter.com/BAuwhN5Ygk

 

 

This comes in light of the thousands of cases across campuses and enough cases on football teams to catch one's attention. However, one would be hard-pressed to find any of these cases ending up in the hospital. I haven't found any of those reports so let's just say it is extremely rare at this point. I guess if you are already a multi-millionaire, you can bite the hand that feeds ya, and Costas took a stab at that. Side note, CNN also thought the Big Ten starts this week (they do not).
