    Even a**holes can know the rules

    Just read this article and watched the interview and couldn't help but laugh.
    Artcicle and video are here...

    Badr Hari Discusses K-1 DQ Loss, Blames Emotions

    Badr Hari doesn’t seem too concerned about his disqualification loss in the finals of this weekend’s K-1 World GP. In case you missed it, Hari took Remy Bonjasky down, which is already illegal in K-1, but then he decided that as long as he was down there he might as well punch him a couple of times and then stomp on his face. When the interviewer here points out to him that this is “prohibited,” Hari responds: “Yeah, but cycling on the pavement is prohibited too.”

    Seriously? That’s his response to illegally attacking an opponent who was under the referee’s care? Apparently Hari didn’t feel that his actions in the fight made him unlikeable enough. No, better go ahead and follow that up with a dismissive statement that reveals your amoral thought process to the world, just to be sure.

    The argument that I absolutely don’t buy in this case is that he let his emotions get the better of him because Bonjasky didn’t come to fight. First of all, when Bonjasky dropped him in the first, that seemed an awful lot like fighting. Second, if you get mad in a kickboxing match, why not kick or punch the other guy in the head, torso, or leg region while you’re both standing? It’s an effective expression of anger, and it’s legal!

    Then again, if you fight only within the scope of the rules, how is everyone supposed to know what an ******* you are?

    At first I wondered what this had to do with cycling advocacy, but then I see that fighters comment "yeah, but cycling on the pavement is prohibited also".

    Well....I doubt he's a spokeperson that's taken seriously. I wouldn't worry about it.

    The point is this just illustrates what the public really knows about cycling on the roadways...

    That sounds about as logical as a kick to the head.

    Hey there slugger, I hate to break it to you but you have no idea of what you are talking about. In British English the 'pavement' is what Americans call the 'sidewalk'.

    Proving the ignorance of the general public.

    More like proving a language difference exists, in spite of both parties speaking "English."

    I try to agree with your point and someone gets all grumpy. Sounds like someone needs to take a nap on his cot.

    Sometimes things just don't translate well on the 'net.
