| TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz has been making the media rounds, giving her take on what happened between her and the New York Jets football team on the field and later in the locker room that prompted reports of sexual harassment. The story broke yesterday with reports that the NFL was investigating whether Jets players behaved inappropriately - including allegedly hooting and hollering at Sainz in their locker room - when she visited the team Saturday. |
After the story grew and Sainz was appearing on TV network after TV network, she said she hoped similar things never happen again. She acknowledged, however, they have happened before. For her part, Sainz says she has put the harassment issue in the past. The Jets have apologized to Sainz - an apology she has accepted.
But the furor has hardly died down on the Web and in social media and it didn't lose any traction on Monday night when the Jets lost to the Baltimore Ravens 10-9 while being penalized 14 times for 125 yards, leading sports commentators to question the team's focus.
When we posted our first story - the comments came fast and furious and continued throughout the day.
As of the time I write this, more than 1,000 of you have shared our story about the incident on Facebook, there are more than 700 comments, and the story and videos of Sainz' interviews have remained at the top of CNN's NewsPulse, which ranks popular stories, for the past 24 hours.
What do you make of the Ines Sainz controversy?

American female reporters are usually dressed more appropriately. They wear business suits, or whatever but this:
What did she want....the team to ask her to come to bible study tonight? What about last year when she had on her famous 'come hither' jeans and a lace top riding on the shoulders of two Colts players? I mean what does she want? What do the feminists want?
At the same tiime, they were wrong for making comments to and about her, but they should get nothing more than a good fussing. That's it.

I don't think her outfit is inappropriate. It's jeans and a button up top, not a miniskirt. I've actually been sexually harassed at work wearing things that were completely fine according to the dress code, yet my office friend (who's also my best friend) told me he overhead male co-workers saying that I was asking for it. A guy I worked with was calling me "mamacita" and cat called me when I walked by. The first time I thought it was funny, but then he wouldn't stop so I said hey it's not funny anymore stop it and he continued. A female co-worker told him to stop too and he didn't so we told the boss. He was gonna get fired, but I actually told our manager not to fire him and she didn't. Then about two months later he made some type of comment to another lady and he got fired.
Sometimes when your an attractive woman in a mostly male environment it doesn't matter what you wear, men will still say things.

I did hear that she bills herself in her home of Mexico City as the Hottest Sports Broadcaster on TV. Jury is still out. No face shot?
Other people claimed it was the fact she was Latino and of course we all know Latino women are much more flamboyant than .... forget it not my idea anyway.
at the World Cup
She was credentialled and whether she is a sports journalist of any worth is moot. Maybe she wouldn't look so bad in a business suit either?

Isn't that comment getting a little catty?
i still don't know if she really knows anything about sports?

It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like or what you wear - you can be sexually harassed.
I get a little tired of people that think only the attractive women get harassed.
When a woman interviews athletes, she should always dress appropriately.
I don't think male reporters are wearing tight jeans, tank tops and high heels...
Why doesn't the league give the athletes 30-45 minutes to shower and get dressed into street clothes, before reporters enter the change rooms?

1. Mexicans as a whole really don't care about american football, especially not the Jets. Why send a reporter to cover this?
2. Female reporters in the locker room is an issue all on it's own. Hot or not, you're in a room full of naked testosterone fueled men. Why even risk it? Send a dude reporter in.
3. "Other people claimed it was the fact she was Latino and of course we all know Latino women are much more flamboyant than .... forget it not my idea anyway."
--I'm a Mexican WOMAN, and you have some nerve making that statement.

I work with one or two Hispanic guys. I will have to ask them what they think. I can say anything to them without them getting offended. We had a real interesting discussion on illegal immigration recently.

Now, I donÂ´t know why reporters would go into the changing rooms for interviews. It this common practice even for male reporters? Not that I donÂ´t wanna see sweaty football players with a towel wrapped around their waist ...sorry got off track lol...anyway, seems a bit weird to me either way.
