Cowboy player charged with manslaughter in car accident: Will Costas lead an outcry about drunk driving by football players?

With all the discussion about how how a gun was used to kill someone, will there be a similar outrage here?  From Fox News:
Dallas Cowboys practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown was killed in a one-car accident Saturday and teammate Josh Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter. 
Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said the accident happened about 2:20 a.m. Saturday in the Dallas suburb. Brent was speeding when the vehicle hit a curb and flipped at least once, Argumaniz said. 
Argumaniz said the 25-year-old Brown -- also Brent's teammate at the University of Illinois for three seasons -- was found unresponsive at the scene and pronounced dead at a hospital. 
The police spokesman said officers conducted a field sobriety test on Brent and arrested him. The charge was upgraded after Brown was pronounced dead. . . .

Using strictly Costasian logic, if there hadn't been a car for him to drive drunk, his teammate would not have died. I expect Bob Costas will be consistent and advocate the prohibition of the internal combustion engine after this.

One commentor today suggested that Costas would ban the wheel.
