I know not all of you watch NFL, but I'm interested to hear thoughts on this (potential feminism/sexism THREADSPLOSION)
Basically, a mexican female TV reporter has caused a bit of a stir in the past week after she walked into the NY Jets locker room to interview their (mexican-born) QB Mark Sanchez. She got a lot of abuse and catcalls from the players, who were all walking around naked and so on and so on. Which is clearly not on, despite whatever various players have been saying on twitter about her presence in a locker room inviting such abuse.

What interests me though is the woman's conduct in terms of how she's dressed - look at this interview with her where she's dressed fairly provocatively, and the same was suggested about her at the Jets game. Does this weaken her case at all? I mean, the NFL is full of female reporters who've conducted locker room interviews for years. And whilst most say they get their fair share of catcalls etc, it's interesting that this case has suddenly blown up.
