This might be a stretch (or if nothing else, a big assumption to say it's a stretch!), but if she's working for a station from another country ... maybe the standards for appropriate attire for her job are different.

Maybe. I don't know.

I'm going to try and shut up, now that my initial vomity rage is out of the way, and very well might just cover everything I have to say about it.

Plus, I have to go to choir rehearsal, which is probably a good thing.

Out of curiosity, do you think female reporters should be in the locker rooms?

It's interesting - on the one hand, I don't really see the reason why a woman journalist shouldn't be able to report from the men's locker room.

On the other hand, would the opposite ever happen? And if it did, how would it be handled? (Or does it already happen and I just have no idea because I don't pay attention to sports reporting?)

tbh i think locker room reporting is gratuitous and unnecessary anyway. aren't there warm-up or weights areas elsewhere where longer post game interviews could be conducted anyway?

No. If she was briefed as to what professional attire in our culture then she was wrong, but not "in the wrong". There's a difference.

I have worked alongside women at NHL and CFL (Canadian football) games and as far as I could tell, there was never an issue.

At the Bell Centre in Montreal, for example, once the game was over, we reporters would wait outside each respective dressing room door for a maximum of five minutes before all being let in at the same time. There was never an issue where the players would wait to get fully dressed before allowing female reporters in. During scrums, players, for the most part, would have some article of clothing on. But while we were scrumming, it was commonplace for other players to walk to their stalls completely naked and no one batted an eyelash.

The women were there to work, and everything was done in a professional manner. I do not think that I, as a male journalist, should have exclusive access to a locker room.

Yes. If they're able to keep it professional and maintain decorum, I do not see why not.

Then again, I was never a fan of the so-called double standard.

You're right, I used the wrong phrasing there. Thanks for pointing it out.

My neighbour's 4 year old son's favourite expression these days is a gleeful "have you no shame?!?!" that he picked up from an Ikea commercial. Of course, he has no idea what it really means.

The other evening another neighbour was out with her puppy and the kids were crowded around them to play with the pup. She bent over to adjust the leash, unwittingly flashing all of us and at that very moment at the top of his little lungs, he blurted directly at her "HAVE YOU NO SHAME?!!".



Anyway.

That an attractive women in a football locker room may elicit undignified behaviour is rather predictable. Sure, it may be wrong but whatever. She could have been wearing a potato sack and they may have acted the same way and it shouldn't have been a surprise to her - in fact I'm sure it wasn't. So I do smell a rat on the "oh I was harassed" not being entirely authentic.

Seems like manufactured controversy and shameless self-promotion of a fame-whore who calls herself the "hottest sports reporter in Mexico".

Sadly, the real shame is that the 'blame the victim' card is so easy to play.

If one of her complaints is that a player was naked, then she shouldn't be in there

How's this for a double standard? I think women reporters should be allowed in the men's locker room, but not vice versa. Men and women are different. It's just the way things are

Ines Sainz (PICTURES): Mexican Reporter was "Dying of Discomfort" in Jets Locker Room - Crimesider - CBS News

Some of the pictures in the link above with her interviewing athletes show her in sexy outfits that I would normally see in a nightclub. But as someone mentioned in the link above, if you have ever watched Univision or Telemundo, many of women they have reporting are all sexed up. Boobs, makeup, heels, short skirts, tight shirts,etc... It just could be accepted in their culture to dress that way. Do I think she asked for the catcalls? I don't know but I am sure she isn't shy about drawing attention to her physique.

I also don't think interviews should be done in the locker room.
