Female Reporter Harassed in Jets Locker Room

I don't condone was these Jets players did or said, but I don't believe her when she says she wasn't trying to look anywhere while she was in the locker room.

This lady calls herself the hottest reporter out of Mexico, she's very high on herself. Females shouldn't be allowed in men's locker rooms in the first place, since it's obvious things like this "incident" is bound to happen.

On a funny note, am the only person that believes it's funny that "Woody Johnson" had to be the one to apolgize.

I know that you're not saying this, and I'm not accusing you of it, but that post is strikingly similar to fundamentalists who say women who wear revealing clothes deserved to be raped.

Again, I know you're not saying that and I would not accuse you of it, but you might wanna take a second to rethink that.
No no I see where you're coming from and trust me I'm not saying "She's asking for it". I was just painting a picture of her (this is Ines Sainz at an NFL Game);



around something like this (Mind you this following pic is not of the Jets);



And you're bound to have High Testosterone Males Peacocking. Thats just how the world turns. I dont feel its her fault or their fault, to me thats just a natural response to stimuli of that sort. And the Fans just need to be aware that these NFL Players are human to, they make mistakes, they crave flesh just like any other human being out there.


Wait a minute, I just heard her say she didn't feel harassed! It was another female reporter that made it an issue. I can't confirm that right now, but if true it would add some context here.
The Second youtube video I provided is from ESPN, and that particular broadcast says that the claims made here are over exaggerated and not entirely hers. Which just pisses me off even more because then it truly does become a "These guys are millionaires, lets hurt them with Rumors of Sexual Harassment!"

Classless or not, She's a good looking female in a mini-skirt parading around a Testosterone Pool of Guys in their 20's.

If this were a Frat House nobody would have even noticed and the jeering (if it even happened) would have been 10x worse and drastically suggestive. I honestly believe the only reason its even come to attention is because they are millionaire football players. And for that I find it to be money grubbing bullshit, all that's missing from this shenanigan is a cry of Rape.

You dont go to the Primate Cage at the Zoo and get mad at the monkeys for Throwing shit at you or trying to piss on your leg through the fence. Its expected, an obvious risk you take when you get that close. To me I feel the same, sure the guys can demonstrate better manners.... but in the end they're still Boys, beefed up playing a game that displays barbaric aggression and strength.
The thing is they aren't monkeys, they are grown men who play a professional sport and should be expected to act professionally. Especially someone who is older such as Jason Taylor and Dennis Thurman.

That's fairly normal and non controversial attire for women from other countries, and the athletes still have a responsibility to control themselves. It's not like they couldn't help it. I'm not expecting them to suppress all natural urges, but that does not mean they can't act like adults. This was hardly inevitable.

Woah Woah Woah there.... Next thing ya know I'm gonna be under fire like Howard Cosell for using a "Monkey" analogy :hah:

I realize they're not Monkeys. But to me, they're still rabid beasts. And although they're supposed to be Professional, they're still largely a younger group of guys as I said before, in their 20's.

The article doesnt call out many names.... for all we really know.. Jason Taylor and Dennis Thurman may not have even been in there. Or They may have even been in there telling the other guys to simmer down. That much information we simply dont have.

What we do have, is a well endowed female who got embarrassed because she wasnt in control of a situation she put herself in and had to wade through pronounced sexual tension.

I have no sympathy for her. She wasnt touched, only drooled over. I cant stand the fact that we've come to a point in society where now an "Action" can consist of just thinking about it.

Nah I disagree.

I used to work with a guy who Played Pro Ball for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the stories he'd tell me about how archaic his team mates were from Triple A to the Show was really eye opening. Changed my opinion of most all Pro Athletes out there. Sure there are exceptions, but not many. Same thing with my experience in Minor League Hockey, I got to hang out numerous times with our Local Minor League Hockey team after games and it was the same thing. If a guy wanted something... he made it known, and normally he got it.

We're talking about guys who are playing a sport to a point where they become idols to alot of individuals. Their faces become recognizable and people want their autograph. They're put on a platform at a young age, taught they can have practically anything they want with little to no payment or repercussion. Its a Power trip, a broken psyche thrust into a deity complex... then pair that with all of the Steroids and other legal/illegal supplements that they used on a consistent basis... sure these guys can put on a suit and smile for a camera, but they're a stick of dynamite waiting for that fuse to get hard.

And if one thing was consistent in his stories and my experience with the Falcons... that Fuse was extremely short. The majority of the guys are raw emotion, physical power, and deity complex all wrapped in one without a filter. Theres a reason each team only mic's up certain players.

heh, and I'm not saying her attire is controversial. I'm applauding her for taking such care of her body and the gifts she's been given. Its obvious she knows how to flaunt 'em.

I'm not saying they're not immature douches. However, if she felt legitimately harassed, it's obnoxious, if not sexist, to say "Oh well, they're athletes and she's hot so it's not a big deal."

Like I said, IF what Cons posted is true I find it classless and disappointing. We don't know exactly what happened though. I would expect more from professionals no matter how old they happen to be.

We don't really know what happened so it's too early to say whether I sympathize with her or not. Unfortunately in society women are treated like this (allegedly) and she ends up getting the blame (I'm not saying you're doing that here, I'm speaking generally).

EDIT: This goes back to my feelings on the Ben Roesthlisburger issue. No matter how pampered these guys are and no matter how easy is it for them to get what they want, it still isn't right to treat women that way. As good a QB I find him to be I find his behavior disgusting and 4 games, to me, isn't enough of a sanction. If he is a real man he would learn not to treat women the way he does.

If he picks up someone at a bar that is one thing, and you're right, many times women do things and say things to try and blackmail them out of money, I agree, but the fact still remains many women in society are subjected to this boorish behavior and it really should stop.

I agree with you and gavik that they should act as gentlemen and professionals.

If I were in their shoes, I strongly believe that I would want to be like Jason Taylor and compose myself in a very Official and Mature way. I know everyone is different, but I also know alot of people are the same. So to me, what I know is right... isnt always what I feel is practiced.

And I absolutely agree... thats a very unfortunate thing.

Here's what Clinton Portis had to say about the situation:

“You put a woman and you give her a choice of 53 athletes, somebody got to be appealing to her,” Portis said. “You know, somebody got to spark her interest, or she’s going to want somebody. I don’t know what kind of woman won’t, if you get to go and look at 53 men’s (bodies). … I know you’re doing a job, but at the same time, the same way I’m going to cut my eye if I see somebody worth talking to, I’m sure they do the same thing.”
Portis apologizes for comments about newswomen - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

He could of said in better words, but I do agree with him somewhat. Like I said earlier in this thread, there's no way she wasn't looking around with a bunch of naked men in the room.

I really hate to come across as overly-PC and throw around labels, but this statement smacks of obnoxious sexism. It's like a frat bro saying "Hey that broad's wearing a short skirt cause she totally wants me, bro!" I don't understand why some of the statements in this thread operate on the assumption that no one in this situation could have been expected to be professional.

Take the porn industry. If you're on set and part of the crew, the "actresses" are pretty offended if you just stare at their tits while they're off camera. Seems strange considering the nature of their work, but it's sort of the same case here. Primal human urges don't govern all actions. If they did, I doubt society would stand for more than a day.
