I guess I don't understand why they actually are done in the locker room. Is there a good reason?

Again, in my experience, this was never a problem. I don't see why this should be an issue unless people make it an issue.

There's a different atmosphere in the locker room right after a game than there would be at a press conference a half hour later. I'm sure they get more honest answers from players who are fresh off the field and full of emotion

They seem to catch that in the NHL in the hallway between the ice and locker room most of the time, yes?

Yes, but that's usually one reporter with one player. When you have a media horde of 20-30 reporters, the most convenient place is the locker room.

Meh, if you've got to compete with 30 other reporters for the story on the sidelines or in the locker room, it's probably not a bad idea to, um, stand out.

i'll assume this is a no.

Maybe in some places, but most of the stadiums and/or arenas have the gym areas as off-limits on game days.

At least that was the case in my experience.

But then it's inappropriate if the players acknowledge the reason for her standing out?

How would you distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate acknowledgement?

Regardless, if she's crying foul over a few lewd comments and some nudity, it seems disingenuous.

But the thing is, is she even calling foul? In that most recently posted article she seems to be laughing it off, or am I misreading?

Well, that seems to be what I'm getting out of it
Seems like a bit of a non issue

It's funny you mention that. I heard a woman DJ on the radio a few weeks ago saying that it would be inappropriate for a male to tell a female coworker "that's a really nice dress you're wearing". I think crap like that has gotten way out of hand. Her reasoning was "well, you wouldnt tell a male coworker that he looks good". I make a point of telling my male coworkers/friends that they look cool if they're dressed well

Ok not crying foul, "dying of embarassment".
