Ines Sainz accepts apology, tells her side of the story

"Sexes and ohs" -- headline ripped from The New York Post

The Ravens and Jets never really stood a chance against Ines Sainz. Not when, after a month of trash-talking swagger, the best they could deliver Monday night was a 10-9 game won by Baltimore.

Most people were talking about Sainz and the alleged harassment the TV Azteca reporter was subjected to in the Jets' locker room and on the practice field when she arrived to interview Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

She has accepted an apology from Jets owner Woody Johnson. "Right now, we're working with the league and we're doing all the fact finding, checking the facts, doing the interviews," Johnson told ESPNNY.com. "Interviews with the players will start [Tuesday]. We've talked to some of the non-players, but [Tuesday] we'll get into it all."

The Association of Women in Sports Media has arranged a tutorial for players, and the NFL is investigating. Sainz appeared on "Today" and "Good Morning America" to weigh in on the debate about women in locker rooms, specificially provocatively-clad women in locker rooms, that the incident has started.

And, of course, Clinton Portis has an opinion. Yakking on "The Mike Wise Show" on 106.7, he mentioned something about "53 men's packages," which I thought was something out of a playbook. Anyway, DC Sports Bog has the report.

"And I mean, you put a woman and you give her a choice of 53 athletes, somebody got to be appealing to her. You know, somebody got to spark her interest, or she's gonna want somebody. I don't know what kind of woman won't, if you get to go and look at 53 men's packages."

Portis' comments drew instant reaction on Twitter.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News: Someone needs to neuter and muzzle Clinton Portis. What an ass!

Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated: Wow! Really, Clinton Portis? Really?

Um........Portis is dead right! His delivery might not be great, but he clearly understand a dynamic that most do not! I mean come on, would male reporters be allowed into a women's locker room where they wore little or no clothing? Total double standard here - but then again the media in this country is absolutely pathetic!!

You are so right, beaner5150. Sending a well endowed woman dressed like a hooker into a locker room full of testosterone loaded men is a recipe for disaster. Then listen to an interview with her and realize that her English is so stunted, what value would having her interview people do?
I an a liberal and do not condone sexual harassment but this was a stupid publicity stunt on her part and on that of her employers.

The NFL just came out said that Portis comments were inappropriate. That's ridiculous. He was telling the truth. They need to stop making this woman seem like a victim. She knew what she was doing and she is getting exactly what she wants, attention!

Posted by: meatkins | September 14, 2010 1:58 PM | Report abuse

This is absurd! I worked in sport managing a male team and spent time the the mens locker room...and I always dressed appropriately. I had respect for myself and my job, and the players gave me respect back.

Men are absolutely allowed in female locker rooms for reporting and both male and female players know when reporters are coming in to interview...so there really is no need for anything to be hanging out, and no reason to object. Portis is being a loudmouth, which he does and it is fine, but what he is saying is totally irrelevant.

Being hot is also irrelevant. Wear clothes that aren't painted on and that keep the girls tucked in. If she walked into any boardroom or office she would be thrown out for her clothes or mocked in a similar fashion. Leave the Jets alone, yeah they didn't do the right thing...but neither did she and she will get rich off of it!

Isn't the fact Sainz couldn't dress appropriately as a media professional evidence enough that there is more to this story than just athletes being athletes?

If there is no difference between male and female reporters and they are there to gather news only, then why not enforce a dress code just like you do in an office where certain kinds of clothing are not 'business standard' or 'business casual'.

What's all this about her clothing? Dressed like a hooker!? Gimme a break! She was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a long-sleave white blouse with a full collar. She wasn't in a mini-skirt with a halter top with her "girls" bouncing about. She was fully clothed in appropriate garb for spending the day at an outdoor practice on the sidelines...

Calling a professional Latina sports-reporter a Mexic#nt (or whatever) is just uncalled for. Of course Ms. Sainz has probably heard worse and she wasn't the one who called attention to the incident. It was another female reporter who heard the comments...

There's nothing unusual or inappropriate about the way she is dressed. VAtoLA, MDlady2, vbogee, can anyone, anywhere, say and do anything they want to you because you might be mildly attractive AND not wearing a Burqa? Is the fact that you have breasts a valid reason to harass you, especially when you're at work????

What are you talking about, she had FORM-FITTING jeans! Do you not think guys won't notice that! On top of that, she had a low cut blouse on where you could see her cleavage. Do yourself a favor and look her up in a google search and tell me if she looks professional in those pictures? That is not appropriate attire. Ask Lindsay Czarniak or Kelli Johnson. They don't dress like that!

And as far as the name-calling. Yes that is inappropriate. She doesn't deserve to be called any racist remarks, but she deserves a share of the blame for this situation. She's a not a victim.

3) I speak Spanish better than she speaks English...and I don't speak Spanish very well.
4) Did I mention smokin' hot?
5) This whole thing is a Christine Brennan jihad....Sainz doesn't even appear to be offended.
6) NO reporters need to be in the locker room with "53 packages" hanging out. Let them all wait in the media room and get interviews from clean, dry athletes who've had a chance to catch their breath.

Even taken out of context, Portis' comments are perfectly correct, perfectly obvious, not at all sexist or disrespectful, and not even controversial.

Good luck getting traction with this particular non-story. And good luck getting any athlete to answer a question honestly instead of with pat cliches if you are going to jump on Portis for this... Ridiculous.

And to Clinton Portis: sane people will have your back on this one if they keep coming at you over it.

Her jeans were no more form-fitting than the tight jersey pants the male athletes wear at practice... Form-fitting jeans are not hooker clothing or inappropriate for attending an informal, open practice session on a sunny, summer afternoon... Certainly not grounds for derogatory harassment...

Saying she had it coming because she had on jeans and a long-sleeved blouse is borderline misogynistic. Her jeans were no more form-fitting than the tight jersey pants the player wore to practice...

How come in the interview she says she didnt feel harassed or upset yet this is such a big issue? Is it because she is comfortable with the resulting attention that comes from showing off her great body, but the female reporter who filed the complaint is not? Is the real problem here the players' behavior, Sainz' attire, or the attitude of the reporter who filed a complaint on Sainz' behalf without her knowledge?

What the heck is your problem? Are you one of those feminist? You have said some utterly ridiculous comment, but some how you think men wearing tight pants is inappropriate. Nevermind that they wear pads underneath. Nevermind that they have to wear this attire that only seems practical in a contact sport that requires some one to grab/tackle them. And some how you equate a woman's backside to a man's backside. That's funny I don't recall seeing men wearing form-fitting pants to show their 'figure'. Get a life!!!!

Good grief! A little perspective people. She was never in any danger and she was definitely trying to get attention. Sometimes, you let guys be guys (and before anybody starts accusing me of sanctioning harassment or assault, I'm not even suggesting that kind of behavior is o.k.). Just that after a football game in a locker room of that many guys, you should get your guard up and be ready for anything. She would have been better served if she had just told them to shut the F!@K up and finished her interview.

Whatever words or phrases were uttered in the Jets locker room after practice likely pales in comparison to the raunchy stuff Ms. Sainz has heard over the years covering sport throughout Latin America where "machismo" rules the day, discrimination and harassment in the workplace is the norm, and domestic violence is tolerated. I doubt she even blushed.

That said, this if the NFL and it is the MOST successful professional sports league because the "shield" means something and the NFL expects that values and morals we hold dear as a nation should be reflected by the players, coaches and organizations that represent that "shield."

Sexism, harassment, double-standards, and the degradation of women have no place in today's NFL - especially not in front of reports...

What Portis said was true. Unless this reporter is "gay" she will attract the wrong kind of attention. Women reporters in men locker rooms, right after the game, just because men reporters are allowed in the locker room is wrong. I would be upset if my wife was a reporter and had the audacity to go in the mens locker room just because she feels she has a right to get the same story as men reporters. The NFL need to change this policy. Enough is enough of the silly explanation for why women reporters are allowed in the mens locker room. Equal Rights or common sense?

It isn't necessarily about Ms. Sainz being offended. Like I said, she has probably heard tons worse and likely didn't even blush. Apparently, a US reported was deeply offended. And apparently the NFL has found it offensive.

Ms. Sainz has covered mostly Latin American sports in her career. How many pink team jerseys do you think sports leagues sell to their female fan base in Latin America? Oh, wait, there isn't really a female fan base in all of Latin America.

But there is a huge female fan base in the NFL with tons of pink team jerseys and "Melissa Milano" female NFL gear sold in the USA. Lots of women go to NFL games. Watch a soccer match from Latin America and see how few women are in the stands.

There is no place for sexism, harassment, double-standards, and the degradation of women in today's NFL. It would be a black mark on the "sheild", a slap at part of their fan-base ...and (most importantly to the NFL powers-that-be) a cut in their profits.

Ok so maybe there may have been a US reporter that was offended by the actions of the Jets players, but there is two things you must understand 1) a men's locker room is not a place for women to be. Men tend to act a very sophomoric and informal in that setting so of course there maybe things said that would be considered offensive to women. This is a difference in how men interacts with men and how men interact with woman.

2) This woman was dressed inappropriately. She was not dressed professionally and she was in the locker room tweeting that she was embarrassed. You're in a locker room with butt naked men and you are shocked that you see tallywackers everywhere? Come on grow up, you are a professional. There are woman that have to do this on a weekly basis, but the difference here is this woman was trying to draw attention to herself. Don't think so? Why is she on GMA, the Today show, and all these shows talking about something that she doesn't even know happened? If you want to be treated like a professional, you should dress professional. You don't see a lawyer coming to a courtroom dressed in jeans and a t-shirt and think that a judge is going to take them serious. What she had on was wrong. Yes both the players and she are wrong. But I'm tired of people making it seem like she's a victim. Don't come in a locker room full of naked men revealing your assets. You might as well have been naked yourself if you are wearing clothes that revealing. This is a ridiculous double standard!

If she is going to put herself in that situation and they are going to allow it, a disclaimer should be brought into action that protects both parties from each other. This sexual harassment garbage has gone far enough. It is abused anyway by women that bait men into compromising situations by being provocative with no consequences. Adults stand up and be adults.
