Lisa Olson profile article on Bob Reilly

By Zach Arnold | June 1, 2009

Print Friendly and PDF

The man who wants to stop MMA from being legalized in New York state makes his case:

He says in Albany’s city schools and on its streets, “the fights among young people, half the time it’s girls, which I find a little more disturbing. That might sound sexist, excuse me. But it’s no different than ultimate fighting, when I see one woman grab another woman by the head and knee her in the stomach.”

    Boo hoo!

    ew York is a very old timey boxing town.

    You wont get live MMA until way down the line because New Yorkers have a knack for refusing to admit that anybody else has offered anything culturally.

    New York has an unwieldy ego IMO.

    I think New York is awesome, but thats the impression that I’ve gotten over the years.

    Bob Reilly really gets my blood boiling

  3. 45 Huddle says:

    New York is a weird dicotomy of being an extremely forward thinking state and yet they have some very old school, completely obscelete values. And this includes NYC. I guess that might be the norm for such a melting pott.

  4. IceMuncher says:

    I think that dichotomy is pretty much the norm for the entire country. There’s no such thing as a truly liberal or conservative state; at the most it’s a 55/45 lean one way or the other.

    Bob should try to ban NBA basketball since Amar’e Stoudemire detached his retina
