Bob Costas Has Some Thoughts on the Masters

By / 04.12.13

A sampling of his thoughts, which begin around the 10-minute mark:

What no CBS commentator has ever alluded to, even in passing, even during a rain delay, even when there was time to do so, is Augusta's history of racism and sexism. Even when people were protesting just outside the grounds—forget about taking a side—never acknowledging it. So not only will I never work the Masters because I'm not at CBS, but I'd have to say something and then I would be ejected.

AND

I think somebody should have had the guts to do it along the way. Broadcaster, executive, somebody should have said to someone at Augusta, 'Look, this is an issue. And this is not 'Nightline' or 'Meet The Press,' we understand that. But this is an issue. And it's an elephant in the room. And we're going to address it as concisely as we can, but we're going to address it so our heads are not in the collective sand trap.'

Does he have a point or should he have kept his mouth shut?
