HOWEVER, it is a very different issue to have a remarkably attractive woman, dressed to kill, show up in a LOCKER ROOM, with professional atheletes who are half (or fully) naked, and hyped up from the excitement of a game, and expect there to be no sexual tention or possible issues.
You have some of the fittest, richest, most adrenaline filled young men in the world all in a room together which is supposed to be a "private" area, where they are free to be themselves (hence the phrase "locker room mentality"), and you inject a smoking hot woman, and what do you expect?
It would be one thing if the players, during a formal interview in a studio were inappropriate to her, but that she heard cat calls or whatever while in the locker room after the game comes with the territory. Frankly NO ONE, let alone a female reporter should be in the locker room while people are showering and getting dressed. The interview can wait 10 minutes. But if you need to interview someone that soon, you have to deal with the enviornment you are going into.
What's next, will a female reporter sue because she was forces to see a penis while in the locker room? How dare they be naked while showing and changing clothes when a woman is present? What do they think this is, a locker room or something?
Just another example of PC going WAY too far. Sometimes common sense is abandoned for the sake of what seems "right" on paper but has no place in reality.
ok, so while the jets are practicing and running through drills they are f**king around, throwing balls near her on purpose and pushing teammates near her on purpose, and that's cool? where is it "ok", in your opinion, for her to be? should she just do satellite interviews from another location?
it's not about being politically correct, it's about not being a f**king meathead douchebag. these guys get paid millions of dollars. they can have good looking women whenever they want. is it too much to ask to not act like a f**king caveman when a woman is just trying to do her job?
OH s**t SHE'S DRESSED TO KILL! what do you want her to do? come in wearing some sweatpants and a t-shirt? i see this s**t all the time in my line of work. i honestly wonder about some of the dudes who do this and to the degree that they show their masculinity by going over the top towards females. i'm not saying any of the jets are homosexuals (not that there's anything wrong with that if they were), but it's just some guys are so insecure with their sexuality i think they go over the top in their treatment towards women.
