Mike Francesa Loses His Mind Arguing With Assemblyman Dean Murray Over DFS Bill

Radio host Mike Francesa went off on New York State Assemblyman Dean Murray for proposing legislation that would make Daily Fantasy Sports a “game of skill”.

"Why would you do that?" Francesa said. "It is not a game of skill, it's a game of chance."

A New York judge was in the process of determining just that as of Wednesday when this was being published.

This would ultimately turn into a heated back and forth between the two.
