It would appear that it's not just clueless columnists who are upset over Call of Duty: Black Ops' TV commercial. ESPN has decided to weigh in on the "controversy", because if there's one thing sports commentators should be talking about, it's social issues and videogames!

"I was shocked to see Kobe Bryant in the ads, and shooting the grenades off," says Bomani Jones. He then goes on to claim that his buddy got to "kill Fidel Castro" which pretty much confirms that he didn't stay to watch the game for a full five minutes before mouthing off about it. 

"This qualifies as the all-time what were you thinking?", says Skip Bayless. "Does Kobe Bryant really need this money, this badly? Doesn't he have a couple of daughters, last time I checked? ... he is smiling while wielding an assault rifle in combat, while we have troops overseas at this moment, doing the same thing for real!"

Careful there, Skip. Methinks you're straining with your overacted, affected outrage!

Comes to something when they get upset over a videogame advert and not, y'know, the whole rape thing.
