Clinton Portis Comments
September 15, 2010 by staff
Clinton Portis Comments, With a large attendance of Clinton Portis, Inés Sainz this whole thing has somehow become a debate about allowing women in NFL locker room rather than the details of this case, at least for some people. Which, from the perspective of the league, not a debate at all. Every journalist is treated equally, for this and all other leagues that I know.
But I’m getting a lot of e-mails and comments that suggest that it is a parody of women to be inside a locker room with nkd men, never, no matter the circumstances. Many of these e-mails and comments are significant inaccuracies, not to mention e-vouchers saliva. So, just for the mere fact that, let me attempt to present a few facts. Please try to read these before offering outraged comments below.
Female reporters not be allowed in male locker rooms NFL unless journalists are allowed in the locker room WNBA!
Uh, male reporters are allowed in the locker room of the WNBA.
To repeat, REPORTERS MEN ARE ALLOWED IN WNBA locker room. They are there, you know, do his job. Do not pick the dates or look at women. In the words of Ann Killion:
The WNBA – the playoffs are happening right now – has the same rules of the NBA. Open locker rooms at certain times. In the NCAA tournament, the same rules for both men and women’s locker rooms – are open at specific times. During the regular season, NCAA institutions can make their own rules about the availability of clothing, but during the NCAA tournament has a uniform policy. When Stanford played UConn in the championship last April, if you wanted to see how Jayne Appel was devastated after his terrible shooting night, which needed to be in the locker room. I was there. So were my male colleagues.
So you can argue all you want about inviting reporters in the locker room, but please do not say there are double standards.
Female reporters not be allowed in male locker rooms NFL unless journalists are allowed in rooms enthusiasts dress !!!!!
I received some of these, too. Look, say what you want about the NFL cheerleaders, but the auditions are often modeling bathing suits, have almost nothing in the field, and many men find very attractive in a sexual manner.
So you can say the same for Kory Lichtensteiger or Casey Rabach, I would say this is not a valid comparison. I mean, unless you’re really in the hair back.
Privacy! Athletes need !!!!! privacy They do not want to show their packages to the world !!!!!
After the game, there is a cooling-off period of 10 minutes out in the locker room is closed to the media. This period usually lasts longer. At the moment we walked in the room, some players – often including Chris Cooley, for example – already showered and changed. There is also a private training room for players who want more privacy, plus the shower area.
Last Sunday, for example, Clinton Portis never even appeared in public areas of the Redskins locker room. Nobody saw his package. Not a single journalist. His cabinet was already empty when we were allowed to enter. Unless Portis is speaking at the podium, almost never appears in public after the game, nkd or not.
The Redskins also have a rule that team this year (broadcast) members of the press can not talk to players until their T-shirts. So journalists in general, stay away from players unless they are almost fully dressed. Nobody has enough time to waste standing around waiting for someone to dress.
In addition, some players choose to do all their interviews while still in their game uniforms, and then to shower and change after they empty the locker room. Andre Carter, for example, usually sits in place and that all individual interviews, while still in soccer uniforms, and only then will the shower when the reporters are gone.
So if you are a shy guy and not want to be seen nkd, is very, very easy to avoid.
But furious NFL locker rooms are well-cast sources testosterone hot sex-hungry marauding He-Men !!!!! sexualized encounters are inevitable !!!!!
If you’ve spent much time in the locker room of the NFL and has come to this conclusion, I think it can deter.
For me, NFL locker rooms are not hyper-sexualized dens where women flirting look at the packets and look at the curves and men around the world thinking that to bed. locker room after the game is about sweaty and dirty T-shirts, open wounds, hair, man-bubs, the smell of dirty clothes, pushing reporters with microphones and tape recorders, disc orange slices, Mike Mages asking what your and column is about Sonny and Sam in their full outfits to go out with Larry, Michael, and that the interview Mike Shanahan. These scenes are as sxy as the 80-and-in the Southern Florida Championship Shuffleboard.
I mean, on Sunday, I was interviewing Brian Orakpo when suddenly got a cramp in the leg and gasped in pain. If you were thinking about sex at that moment, I am Inés Sainz.
A mid-week at Redskins Park open locker rooms are a little different, certainly more cheerful and full of jokes and a towel snaps, but still, probably half the guys have pictures of the children or wives or appointments Bible their stalls, and you can not take a step without landing in a crumpled piece of athletic tape missing. I mean, I’m not sure what your idea of sxy is, but this really is not like being in a Vegas showroom.
But but but !!!!! Should not there be some limits !!!!!!
Look, I do not know where you work, but imagine being there, and then imagine that suddenly nkd men 300 pounds of thrust in the image. Would that make your life easier? Is the level of excitement up the workplace? Do you think that journalists, whatever their gender, decided en masse that his life would be complete only if they could do their job while in the presence of nudity?
I’m pretty sure 99.7 percent of journalists who say “Hell Yes” if you are offered the opportunity to interview only people fully clothed. But the most important comfort is the speed, especially after games like last week night. All of our reporters had to file stories within 30 seconds of the final whistle, run to the locker room, and then re-submit as soon as possible to have any chance to get postgame quotes in a few hundreds of thousands of newspapers.
If the teams, told players to stay dressed up interviews were done, I’m sure we’d all be delighted. But the players have places to go, and are in a hurry, and we have deadlines, and we’re in trouble, and so some of the players have a shower and change, while others of them talk. It is not controversial or strange, or sexualized, or lewd. It’s just life.
Now, say what you want about Ines Sainz, how you dress, or how it behaves in the air. But if you want to do this in a wider debate on women journalists to enter the locker room, please at least understand these facts.
