Cleveland Radio Host Kevin Kiley: "There's No Place For a Woman in Professional Sports"


Brace yourself. 

Cleveland radio host Kevin Kiley has some thoughts about about the Buffalo Bills hiring Kathryn Smith as the NFL's first full-time assistant coach. He has some serious complaints about it.

"Women are intellectual beings," Kiley said. "They have to be in order to overcome the physical advantage [that men have]... there's no place for a woman in professional sports." 

When Kiley mentioned women getting to vote for the Baseball Hall of Fame, his co-host points out that some men vote who've never actually played the game themselves. Kiley's response, "But they're guys." Ah, it all makes sense now.

In case you don't know about Kiley's sports accomplishments, a quit check shows that he played college football for the University of Wyoming, but got cut by the New York Jets before ever playing in the NFL. He did however get to play with the World Football League's Chicago Fire. 

Interestingly enough, Kiley is able to host this radio show in Cleveland despite being at an "intellectual disadvantage" to women who may be more qualified, and frankly better, at his job than he is.
