Ines Sainz Fires Back at Female Sportswriters' Organization

Ines SainzA Mexican television reporter, who was the subject of catcalls and leering in the New York Jets' locker room has sharply criticized the group of female sportswriters and broadcasters who went to bat on her behalf.

In a column with E! Universal titled "My September 11 in New York," Ines Sainz lashed out at the Association of Women in Sports Media,, writing she wondered "why such a well respected organization acted so impulsively." Sainz added that she was "shaken" by how the event was covered, adding finally that the media's treatment of the matter "set back the woman's rights movement by at least 50 years."

Sainz, who works for TV Azteca, had reportedly gone to the Jets' practice facility two Saturdays ago, ostensibly to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez. While she stood on the sidelines of a practice field waiting for practice to end, members of the Jets secondary, with coaches Rex Ryan and Dennis Thurman, participating, ran close to Sainz, coming close to making contact with her.

Later, in the locker room, Sainz was the subject of catcalls from some of the players. When one reporter attempted to come to Sainz's defense, defensive lineman Kris Jenkins declared, "This is our locker room." The NFL and the Jets investigated the matter, and league Commissioner Roger Goodell, while not fining the Jets organization, coaches or players, criticized the conduct and directed the team to pay for media training sessions for the entire league.

Sainz has given conflicting statements since the issue came to light. She initially indicated on her Twitter account that she was embarrassed by what had happened,. However, in subsequent appearances on various media platforms, Sainz has said that she was not bothered by either the practice incident or the locker room conduct.

Meanwhile, AWSM immediately sprang to Sainz's defense, calling on the NFL to reaffirm 25-year-old policies that guarantee female media members access to NFL locker rooms. In the process, some NFL players, most notably Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis and Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs, have sharply questioned the need for women to have access to NFL locker rooms.

That title is so way over the top. A classic case of self absorbed importance.

It's funny because she actually has a point but she's too hot and non-American for anyone to pay attention here. I'm serious when I say that I really like this lady and I like how she's handled the incident. That said, as a media person she should at least be aware of how disgusting our sports media is when given even the slightest window to complain about something.

What's funny to me is how Jane McManus and Jenny and Judy Battista were all defending her and she throws them all under the bus.

They were not defending her. They were defending the stupid notion that woman can work where they want to but all of them are as brittle and overtly sensitive as they are!

The whole thing stinks to high heaven. La Chestica shows up dressed for Sabado Gigante; gets treated to a slightly nastier version of what Phil Jackson says to Craig Sager every week; reports it on her Twitter; watches silently as Christine Brennan compares her to Lisa Olson and demands that Goodell start stripping draft picks; and finally surfaces when the news cycle has just about exhausted itself to issue a hit job on the people who paved the way for her to be in a locker room in the first place. From sexist reactionaries to sanctimonious PC overreactors to publicity-hound networks to talentless bimbos, this situation truly had something for every moron in society.

Damn...repped.

She's still playing this situation really well. Here's hoping the Jets hire her.
