The N-F-L chastised the New York Jets football team, but found no evidence that a female television reporter was “bumped, touched, brushed against, or otherwise subjected to any physical contact” by any member of the team or coaching staff.
A couple of footballs were thrown in the direction of the Mexican T-V Network’s Ines Sainz during a Jets practice. Sainz herself did not complain. But obviously, some one did … because the N-F-L is now implementing a training program for all 32 teams on proper conduct in the workplace.
Many American workers have undergone similar “training” on the job and I think it has great value. But I wonder if pro football might have over-reacted?
I saw photos of what Ms Sainz was wearing and I found it … well … would ‘provocative’ be too strong a word? Having participated in a few football practices my self, I can tell you they are one of the most testosterone-permeated places on the planet. Violent, competitive mens’ veins are bursting with male hormones.
It may sound sexist, but I don’t believe a mens’ football practice is any place for an attractive woman, suggestively dressed.
Our thought for today is from Joe Theismann:
“Nobody in the game of football should be called a genius. A genius is somebody like Norman Einstein.”
