Too often, society is was to PC and this is what is wrong with corporate America.....
He's speaking the truth.
If I was walking in the locker room naked and someone like Jennifer Anniston was in there, reporting, don't you think I may be embarrased when I don't want to be?

Portis said what every guy that's ever had an ounce of testosterone was thinking. PC or PR aside though, it was unprofessional to say it. Like I said, anyone who saw the pic of what she wore that day or any other day was already thinking it anyway, so he didn't have to give that opinion.

he didn't say anything that seemed remotely controversial to me.

I'm more mad that he apologized than made the comments. His comments were true.

This is such a joke. Did you see how she was dressed yesterday on the morning news programs? Yeah, embarrassed.

If I would have been in that locker room, I would have rolled my towel up and cracked her on the ass. Then she and the rest of the womens rights groups would really have something to squawk about.

This should be a lesson to female reporters...next time you want to walk into a men's locker room dressed up like a c*cktease, expect to hear some things you didn't (or perhaps did) want to hear.

Sorry, but women don't belong in men's locker rooms. I can't think of any situation or sport where it would be acceptable to allow a man into a woman's locker room for interviews.

The league should just unite and demand these trouble makers stay out altogether. If all the players agreed to sit out next Sunday's game you'd see how fast the league would change their policy. Money (big advertising/television dollars) speaks loudest.

They should have called Jessica Simpson a reporter too if the standard is being hot and standing there.

What a huge fuss about nothing and on top of that...really...if you are going to let eye candy faux reporters stroll about mens locker rooms then why the heck would you not let a legitimate mens reporter into womens locker rooms?

It's quid pro quo and you can bet there are a number of women athletes that are muttering the same comments under their breath about the Telemundo eye candy gal.

The gal isn't a reporter, she's a sex symbol reading off a prompter with dyed hair and plastic boobs who probably doesn't know what a first down is. WTH is she doing in a locker room?

I wonder if the NFL had a problem with the Colts a few years ago at Super Bowl media day:



This is all such a bunch of hypocritcal crap. How is this any different from what happened with Rex Ryan and Dennis Thurman last week?
