Jared Allen suggests talking to Ines Sainz while fully clothed
Jared Allen's fine with reporters like Inez Sainz in the locker room. Keith Olbermann? Not so much.
Jared Allen is playing solid defense for female sports reporters after some New York Jets recently reverted to adolescence around Mexican sports reporter Ines Sainz in their locker room.
Zip it, boys, Allen told Miami radio station 790 The Ticket.
"At the end of the day, the NFL allows women into the locker room," Allen said. "Everybody's got a job, so as a man, put your clothes on, answer questions professionally, and go about your day."
Quite the gentleman NFLer. As opposed to, say, Clinton Portis:
"You put women reporters in the locker room in positions to see guys walking around naked," he said. "And all of the sudden you see a nice woman in the locker room, I think men are gonna tend to turn and look and want to say something to that woman."
And then there's Keith Olbermann, who decided Sainz was one of his "Worst Person's In The World."
"She undermines every female sports reporter who knows the game," Olbermann said. "She was dressed unprofessionally to cover a sporting event, and trust me, the bar for 'professionally' at a sporting event is about an eighth of an inch off the ground."
Don't make Jared Allen put the sack on you, Mr. Olbermann.
