NY assemblyman Bob Reilly: Violence is not good for society

Maggie Hendricks

Hey, do you want to listen to someone ignorant but powerful speak about MMA? Here you go!

New York assemblyman Bob Reilly is a guest on HDNet's Inside MMA on Friday evening, and he says that the violence in the cage is not good for society. He tries to address violence in other sports, like football and boxing, but is unsuccessful at explaining how the violence on the football field is different than the violence in the cage.

We've discussed Assemblyman Reilly and his lack of understanding of MMA several times before, so there is no need to rehash why he is wrong. I give Reilly credit for meeting his opponents on their field, but it's a shame that he didn't walk in with an open mind.
