Mike Shanahan and Clinton Portis meet about remarks

Coach Mike Shanahan spoke with running back Clinton Portis about his comments about female reporters in locker rooms, Shanahan said after practice Wednesday at Redskins Park.

Shanahan declined to reveal the details of his conversation with the team's top back, saying their exchange would remain "private." Suffice it to say, however, Shanahan likely made it clear that Portis should be more careful during interviews.

Last week, Shanahan spoke with tight end Chris Cooley after Cooley revealed in a radio interview that Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth worked primarilywith the scout team while the Redskins prepared to face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. Cooley and Portis have weekly segments on 106.7 WJFK.

The team issued a statement Tuesday saying that it would "take the necessary steps to remind everyone about" the team's policy concerning appropriate behavior. But Shanahan said he did not broach the subject with the entire team Wednesday.

The duds at DirecTV have been running ads directed at expatriate fans. One ad is about a Skins fan living in Dallas, which was run at least once during the Skins/Dallas game. There were a couple of things about the ad that had me wondering.

1. A Skins banner is shown flying from the fan's porch. That would never actually happen. Anybody who did that in Dallas would have a life expectancy measured in hours, maybe minutes

2. A Dallas dog named Troy Barkman pees on the Skins fan's rug. But it turns out that "Troy" is not a he. The dog squats instead of lifting "his" leg.

3. Who is that frail old fart in the wheelchair who pees his depends in unison with the dog peeing on the rug? He looks a lot like Jerrah Jones.

I likes it when a fan dude says shti like this. The domination were so bad that the Cows had 8 minutes more possession time, 130 more yds, 15 more offensive plays and an average gain of 5.4 yds per play. Yesssiree. That a D dominating a O.

Posted by: mack1 | September 15, 2010 7:04 PM | Report abuse

I have it on good authority that Coach reportedly wanted to know why Clinton only limited his iscusion of the reporter's purported interests to 53 playas. He then explained several members of the coaching staff are just as attractive -- if not more so -- than many of the playas... and then when you consider the "little matter" of packages...

Per Clinton Portis's statement:

I was listening to my morning radio show today and they were addressing this situation. One of the ladies on there, who is pretty liberal, PC, and soccer mommish said that it was a stupid comment. So when one of her partners broke it down and asked
her "Do you think it's a reasonable assumption that if you line up 53 athletes in front of a woman that there is a good chance she is going to be attracted to one of them?" She hemmed and hawed because she was all over Clinton's case but had to agree that he was indeed correct. So I gather that although Clinton was just being honest and speaking what most people would perceive to be true, I think people took issue with the "package" statement. So I say again...phuk all these overly sensitive, liberal PC'ers out there. Find something better to do with your time than spending it crying about the way the truth is phrased.

OK, enough is enough and this time I am on Clinton's side of the debate. Women in the men's locker room is on a new's reporting basis, this women is not as much a sports reporter than an entertainment reporter and as such for her to come into a men's locker room dressed like an exotic dancer and not like a news reporter in my mind she would be distracting just because of that. She is a very beautiful women to be sure, but to wear revealing clothes and have her shirt unbuttoned down to below her breasts and a pair of jeans that looked as if they were painted on is irresponsible of her and her station.

Besides this women blew it off, she is not even the one that is complaining it is the other women that were there. So, either this is a jealousy issue that they aren't getting the same kind of attention and they feelings are hurt, or maybe it's time that American men, women and media stop being so puritan in the way they feel the rest of the world should act. This woman is from Mexico, if you watch Mexican T.V. than you will have an idea what she is already immersed in on a daily basis. In fact all over the world countries that don't expect Victorian attitudes in contemporary times, not only have lower sex crimes and unwanted pregnancies, but they live longer and healthier lives. Maybe there is a message there for our frigid ridden Nation. With this landscape of being overly Victorianized being the case than the subject matter being broadcast every minute of every day in America would be considered offensive to women. Or is should by these standards, or it is simply hypocritical.

On the other hand I would hope that by now Clinton would realize that he is a lightning rod of offering stupid statements that constantly make him out to be an idiot. Most cases that is true, but this one I am taking his side and that is saying a considerably significant action or small miracle on my part.


Hey Clinton Portis....you just won one of the biggest games of any season with our number one rival. What are you going to do?

I'm going to say something stupid and let everyone know that I am open for the controversial player comments. All you have to do is stick a mic in front of me and I gonna take you to dumb butt land. That's part of my job, making everybody pay attention to me even if it for the wrong reasons. Got it!!!!

So, ladies get real and Clinton keep your pie hole shut for the next 15 games. If you make the post season than you can say whatever because you'll probably be gone next year anyway.

That was beyond lame. And I would like to know at some point how they are different since the offenses are so similar.

Pretty clear everybody commenting on the "incident" has NO idea what happened. The hot piece of A S S was just doing her job and was dressed as she usually does for her TV show. The comments in question happened on the field and in the locker room and it was another reporter that brought them to light. Ines Sainz has said that she was not offended when reached for comment.

I'm the farthest thing from PC but when Clinton opens his mouth he represents the Redskins and the league, whether he knows what he's talking about or not. In this case he didn't know what he was talking about and neither does most of the people attempting to discuss the "incident".

She is once again an extraordinary piece of A S S but to say that she deserved what she got even though she's not complaining is misguided.

I work in easily the best industry in the world for attractive women and just because they put some effort into their appearance doesn't give me the green light to say how bad I'd like Bill Lumbergh them.

"Too bad The Departed was overrated, just a tad little bit....And, will The Town have the musical styling of Dropkick Murphy's or some other Boston-based band as the soundtrack?"


I think "Brooklyn's Finest" is better than "The Departed" as that movie seemed like an episode of "The Sopranos" more than anything.

"Gone Baby Gone" is highly recommended by this viewer.

"Pride and Glory" is good, too.

Seasons 3 of "The Wire" and "The Sopranos" will get a final review over the Thanksgiving thru X-Mas holiday, in-between turkey and football and spending silly money.

"Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" isn't about messed up cops, just messed up brothers.

Another lowdown gritty flick with morally conflicted characters is an Italian film named "Gommorrah," but that one has subtitle issues that annoy most folks.

Coriolis:

You're right. No one has the right to make lascivious comments - though I'm not clear on how "The hot piece of A S S was just doing her job..." is really different from expressing a desire to Bill Lumbergh her. Apparently, I'm splitting hairs, here.

However, its a little obnoxious to have a rule that women should be required to be allowed to walk around the men's locker room after a game while those men are trying to shower, dress, etc. I realize that the women in question are trying to do their job just as their male counterparts are, but this is a violation of privacy that the players should have a say in. If I'm working at the gap and I need to gather clothing left in the changing room, I can't just walk through while women are changing.

Maybe the way to handle this is to simply bar all reporters from the locker room, or simply make this a fair and equal rule all around. If women should be allowed to interview male athletes while those athletes are dressing, then why not while the athlete is going to the bathroom? I recognize that the rule is to provide equal access, so remove the access for male reporters, too. Theirs no compelling reason that cameras, reporters, or anyone else shou,d be in the locker room while an athlete is getting dressed.

I'm as liberal and PC as they come, but I think this dustup is much ado about nothing. Portis expressed himself in a less than stellar fashion, but it's not a state secret that he's not not the most articulate man. To say that Clinton Portis is an idiot who constantly puts his foot in his mouth is like saying water is wet. However, he's got a right to object to having women wandering around his locker room while he's trying to dress. I probably would have expressed my objections differently, but the objection remains valid.

Should they bar reporters from the field as well? That's were the comments started and when the attractive reporter was getting more interviews than the unattractive reporter. The unattractive reporter made an "incident" out of the comments. Meanwhile the attractive reporter has said she wasn't offended by any of the comments.

Here's a newsflash, generally the world favors more attractive people and those that have no idea what they are talking about generally sound like they have no idea what they are talking about.

It's our understanding that as a result of the national tv beatdown at the hands of the Ballmer Ravens, HBO is re-broadcasting the jets' driven "Hard Knocks" as "Knocked Hard."

And, if the jets go into a loss filled freefall, "Hardly Knocking".

And if they don't make the playoffs, the show will be re-titled "Knocked the F Out".

And if a female reporter hooks up with Mark Sanchez, the final cut will be called "Knocked Up...Because She Made Him Hard".

'And if a female reporter hooks up with Mark Sanchez, the final cut will be called "Knocked Up...Because She Made Him Hard". '

And all this time I thought Sanchez 'cut his eye'?

"But who will tell us what to buy....?"


I dunno.

But politics in this country is straight out of Orwell.

We are like the doublethinkers in 1984 who want services without taxes or sacrifice.

We want to support the troops but not have our sons/daughters join their ranks.

No one knows issues as calling someone a name--Liberal/Conservative--somehow is an acceptable substitute for intelligent chatter.

We hate 'big' government right up until the oil spill or hurricane, then it's, "Where's FEMA?"

We give photogenic, unctuous politicians 18 months to fix issues that have been festering for a generation or two, then get upset when the 'change' they promised doesn't come by X-mas.

Then, we drink tea and party angrily.

And rather than expose ourselves to better information, we prefer that some rich, bookselling telegenic television personality confirms our fears while encouraging us to think he/she has all the answers, but, sadly, no one in charge will listen.

Which is why, according to them, things are so bad.

And you have to believe me when I tell you this as I'm the only one you can trust.

And if you don't, well, you're probably just aren't American and patriotic enough to get just how this country works.

like the Shanahan mic'd up video. What I really liked was the way he went after the refs on the Fletcher call. He put the refs on alert not to miss stuff.

Did it come in handy?

I mentioned it in ZEKE'S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES -- I wonder if the ref would have tossed the flag on the final play if it had been Zorn on the sideline.

Its that type of game awareness that makes Shanahan the guy to have on our sideline

Not to start a political debate but it's interesting that you seem to attribute this attitude towards conservatives (yes I called it a name but you singled out a conservative institution) when the only people that were calling Americans unamerican and unpatriotic were Liberals. I'm sure that wasn't your intention though.

Per Clinton Portis's statement:

I was listening to my morning radio show today and they were addressing this situation. One of the ladies on there, who is pretty liberal, PC, and soccer mommish said that it was a stupid comment. So when one of her partners broke it down and asked
her "Do you think it's a reasonable assumption that if you line up 53 athletes in front of a woman that there is a good chance she is going to be attracted to one of them?" She hemmed and hawed because she was all over Clinton's case but had to agree that he was indeed correct. So I gather that although Clinton was just being honest and speaking what most people would perceive to be true, I think people took issue with the "package" statement. So I say again...phuk all these overly sensitive, liberal PC'ers out there. Find something better to do with your time than spending it crying about the way the truth is phrased.

Hayneworth may even start this week. remember when Schwartzkopff used cnn to make iraq think we were coming from the beach and we came from the south? same thing expect anything with Shanny. unless the defense takes a major leap forward I think we'll lose this game in a close one maybe 20-17. however if that stadium rocks like sunday night all bets are off. I could feel the electricity down here in cajun country. I'm sticking with my 10-6 call...we only need nine more

I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal that is saying that the Tea Party and divisions within the Democratic party could spell the end of the 2 party system. Wouldn't that be great?!?! The Democrats have moved so far left and the Republicans (Tea Party) so far right that we could possibly have a Centrist party. That would be a beautiful thing that most Americans would support. I would join it.

Please don't bring up politics in a sports forum. the fact of the matter is there is no two party system how could there be a third? both political paties are controlled by Freemason who have secretly kept guard over the rites and rituals of a secret society thats sole existence is the reforming of the world into one order. this society in conjunction with the catholic church have planned and plotted wars that have changed the shape of society since the Death of christ. should I go on?

It was our insensitive liberal Prez that made the remarks about special kids and bowling, remember? I am sure that can be blamed on the insensitive conservatives. How about his over reaction to the white police officer trying to deal with his professor friend? Yes, let's blame that on the conservatives, too. No, no - let's dredge up something from the Bush presidency that reeks of insensitivity because that is totally relevant with him out of the office for two years.

If the NFL wants to fix this, they should just prohibit all reporters from the locker rooms and leave the interviews for after the players have showered, dressed and exited the locker room. That might not be a happy compromise for the sports networks, but hey, you reap what you sow.

Come on, RSH, get a cup of coffee.

Fix what? This has been standard practice in the NFL for years. Female reporters go into both locker rooms after every game and every pre-season game. That's 640 visits by female reporters, per year. The players know about it and they know how to act. The union has no complaint about it. When was the last time there was a story like this? It ain't broke and it don't need to be "fixed."

You know, I dropped a glass in the kitchen yesterday and it broke. The way to "fix" this would be to get rid of all the glasses and replace them with plastic cups. Or, just clean it up and try to be more careful. It's not like I break the glass every time I take one out of the cabinet.

Jesu Christo...can we not get into politics on here? I mean, really people...

And just as bad as talking politics on a Redskins blog is predicting JC's demise after ONE game in Oakland. Some have Tennessee as a playoff contender (if not SB contender) and losing on the road to them isn't nearly as embarrassing as it would have been, say, this time last year.

beep, you make a good point but I think what happened here is that this Sainz drama highlights how lame it is to have reporters shove a mic in a guy's face while he's trying to get dressed. While you don't have to enact wholesale change every time something less than favorable happens, sometimes it does serve as a snapshot of what you're doing wrong or perhaps need to tweak. I hope the NFL and other leagues come to the reality that interviewing players in a setting that SHOULD be private isn't the best plan.

I think the prediction is based on ONE game in Oakland plus FIVE years in DC. He is who we thought he are. And someday Oakland will, like the Redskins, look back with the 20-20 rear view mirror and say "We badly overpaid for this guy."

On locker room interviews, agree to disagree. Reporters like them not because they like to see men with towels around them but because they think they get better quotes when players have had less time to cool down after a game. The NFL is happy with them, the union is happy with them, reporters are happy with them. This was settled a long time ago and everyone's moved on.
