NFL investigating Jets' 'frat-boy' locker room

Over the weekend at Jets practice, there was some noise made about a potentially awkward situation whereby Jets players and coaches were, for lack of a better word, harassing a female reporter from TV Azteca.

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post mentioned it a couple of times on Twitter, and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk was informed by sources that the Jets were -- with said TV reporter present -- "acting like frat boys."

Apparently, the reporter went into the locker room and was essentially treated to cat calls (or something close to it) and was "embarrassed, to the point of being close to tears."

Clearly, the NFL wouldn't be thrilled with this behavior, and sure enough, they're investigating it, as NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed to CBSSports.com that "the Jets and our office began looking into it as soon as we learned of it last night."

If the Jets did indeed behave as was reported, you can expect Roger Goodell to take this matter pretty seriously. He's stood by reasonably quietly while the Jets, ahem, swagger has let them become one of the most talked about teams in the NFL.

When it comes to something that could border on sexual harassment, though, you can bet the NFL won't sit idly by.

They shouldn't act like that.  They are supposed to be "professionals".  Hopefully she is smart enough to get a good payday out of this and teach these idiots a lesson.

typical jet fan.always thinking with the wrong head.nobody has the right to say anything to another person whether it be a woman or a man that is sexual in nature.you believe you can make sexual comments then you are unsure of your own manhood or womanhood.

Did anyone else to to the "T.V. Azteca" website and click on Hor arios expecting to see the girl there with the words pronunciation?


Please, if she can't take a joke or is to "tears" from someone goofing with her she shouldn't be a reporter or brought into the locker room to begin with..


But yeah, to many "apparently " and "it was said that " for anyone to take this seriously, lol...

>>>Big deal..women shouldn't be going into NFL locker rooms anyway!

Regardless of whether or not women belong in the NFL locker room - and frankly I agree with you that they shouldn't be, any more than guy should be in women's locker rooms - the fact is she *was* there and did not deserve to be treated like she was.

What she should have done, of course, was return the catcalls and extend her pinkie to a few select fellows.
