im sure everyone has heard about the female reporter getting upset because some comments made by some football players about her and how she was dressed is why the comments where made.how do you feel about this situation? my opinion is if youre going to dress that way infront of all thoughs males you should except it and dont get all upset of it.

If she was dressed professionally, I'd be more outraged. As it stands, I'm not all that outraged on her behalf.

She wasn't assaulted, she got wolf whistles and a few remarks. Big deal. That does not constitute sexual harassment.

If you want to be treated as a professional, dress and act like one. Don't dress like you're ready to go clubbing, just as soon as this interview is done. =/

Yes, the football team is partially at fault too but she needs to take her lumps. It is not all their fault.

look what she wears, are you kidding me Im sorry but if I went out dressed like that then Id expect what was being said, if she didnt want the attention she should have dressed professionally NOT provocatively, its simple

Tah- She was wearing jeans that were so tight shes probably gotta peel them off, and she was wearing a shirt that definitely showed off her assets. If I'm looking for attention thats how I would dress.

It is hard enough for women to be taken seriously in certain professions and as a sports reporter she is in a mans world. I know how sexist that sounds but its true. Maybe now she'll invest in some suits.

My hubby thinks shes getting exactly what she wants and bet his buddy at work she'll be in playboy within the next year.

I think whistles are what those clothes were built for...sorry.

Sexual harassment would suggest that she was negatively affected in some way...and I don't believe she was.

I also think, though I suppose I could be mistaken...that she had no problem with the comments...that somebody else nearby complained...no?

should the football team have done that to her no they shouldnt have but to be its a 50/50 they were both at fault but she was asking for it if you wear the clothes to turn heads then except the comments and what not to follow. so yall are saying if i go out in a mini skirt and a blouse that shows off my breasts and is too form fitting Im not asking for trouble? she may have been wearing pants that were TOOO tight and a blouse to form fitting this time but when she was being interview she had a shirt with he boobs literally jumping out saying look at me but thats ok right mmmmm i have to disagree when you dress like that except what you get

"She was asking for it" is an excuse that long ago expired. We don't get to treat people poorly and then blame them for it.
