Dumb Reporter.

If you want to be dealt with professionally, then dress professionally.

If you know that there is a hungry lion walking around in your neighborhood, are you going to deliberately walk around just because you have a right too? Or are you going to take appropriate measures to get to where you have to go safely?

WHAT A CROCK!

Just another example of how "political correctness" has been allowed to go too far.

A "professional" reporter would not be walking around the sidelines wearing what she was wearing. Can anyone reading this recall ever seeing John Madden, Brent Musburger or any other male reporter for that matter, wearing painted on denim jeans? As for her being, "granted the same rights to perform their jobs as men". Come on! I've never heard of a male reporter going into a female locker room immediately after any event to interview any famale athlete. How long would it take for that law suit to be filed, by the females?

Haven't we all figured out that these "athletes", the majority of whom are little more than overpaid high school jocks, with the mentality and maturity to prove it. There are too many recent examples that can be referenced as examples to mention. Are these guys angels? Absolutely not, that includes the coach that was mentioned, who was throwing footballs in the direction of the reporter while she was trying to conduct her interview. What does that say about the management?

Athletes have been brought up in a culture where they have been given carte blanche to do pretty much whatever they want, whenever they want it, because of the simple fact that they are JOCKS.

This debate will be around for a long time, and while there are no completely innocent parties in this mess, it is obvious that there are some clear double standards going unchecked.

Riiiggghhhttt. She's a "professional reporter with an interest in sports."

And I'm the Easter Bunny with an interest in eggs.

The dear old NFL, in its eagerness to be loved, politically correct and avoid lawsuits, strikes again.
