ESPN BREAKING NEWS: “Experts” say Oscar Pistorius “violated basic firearms rules” when he shot his girlfriend. Good thing the experts were around to make this call:

Even if Oscar Pistorius is acquitted of murder, firearms and legal experts in South Africa believe that, by his own account, the star athlete violated basic gun-handling regulations and exposed himself to a homicide charge by shooting into a closed door without knowing who was behind it.

TV’s Andy Levy and others offer theirĀ expertise on ESPN’s crack reporting.

    ESPN should stick to broadcasting sporting events and leave news and commentary to the adults.

    Great, now ESPN is getting in on the action? Start the countdown where Stuart Scott remarks that Oscar’s future has turned “cooler than the other side of the pillow.”

    actually some countries allow one spouse to shoot the other, how do they know what the laws are in south africa? they surely don’t know our laws, and don’t call me shirley!

  • peteee363

    can we get bob costas to read an opinion over the air? he must know what the law is over there!

    ESPN jumped the shark years ago. Useless like Disney/ABC.
