On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing why the new deal for Golden Boy Promotions and Affliction Clothing to run joint boxing-mixed martial arts cards on pay-per-view television is a long shot at best, and what it means for both boxing and mixed martial arts. As usual, this is a no holds barred analysis.
In the second part of this show, we return to discussing the Gotham Girls Roller Derby league, a skater-owned and operated organization based in New York City. They have just completed their regular season, and are preparing for their postseason competition. The Gotham Girls Roller Derby is currently ranked second in the U.S., and first in the east, by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, the national organization of roller derby leagues.
Right after their last regular season game this past Friday night, Sept. 12, where the Manhattan Mayhem routed the Brooklyn Bombshells by a score of 146-91, we spoke with Ginger Snap aka Natily Blair, the president of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby. She also skates for the Bronx Gridlock, the defending league champions, who will face the Queens of Pain Sat., Oct. 25, at Hunter College in Manhattan in their 2008 championship game.
We discussed Friday's game, what to expect in the postseason, the structure of the regional and national postseason events, and more.
