It’s highly probable most of you have heard the story about sideline reporter, Ines Sainz being sexually harassed while at the New York Jets practice facility last week by some players.
The story doesn’t seem to be going away. Ines has been on several talk shows discussing the matter, while the Jets have remained silent.
I think the story brings up a bigger issue. And that is, should there be a dress code for women when entering men’s locker rooms?
I’m not defending the New York Jets players behavior. Some of them allegedly threw footballs close to the reporter so they could get a closer look at her. Then made rude remarks and cat calls when she was in the locker room interviewing quarterback Mark Sanchez for Mexico’s TV Azteca.
Ines is known for wearing very tight, ass hugging jeans and dressing in a sexy manner. Some would say that doesn’t matter and shouldn’t be a reason players should whistle at or ogle her. Considering the fact an NFL locker room is a workplace and subject to the same rules that apply to corporate America.
NFL spokesman, Greg Aiello told MSNBC an investigation is underway.
“The issue is proper conduct in the workplace,” said Aiello. “The locker room is a workplace.”
Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis had a different view.
“You put a woman and you give her a choice of 53 athletes, somebody got to be appealing to her.” he said. “Somebody got to spark her interest, or she’s gonna want somebody. I don’t know what kind of woman won’t, if you get to go and look at 53 men’s packages.”
Portis has since apologized for those comments, but is he right?
For her part, Sainz has said she isn’t the one who made the sexual harassment charges. Other members of the media who witnessed what happened in the locker room did.
Nevertheless, a few players will probably be paying a hefty fine and face possible suspension for their actions.
Which leads back to my original question. Should female reporters be required to have a more toned down dress code when in men’s locker rooms?
As a fan of Telemundo I can see why she is having this problem in the U.S! EVERY HOST OR REPORTER on Telemundo Looks GOOD AS #$%&!!!! Check out these pictures below!
