Just as the Jets and the NFL would like for this Ines Sainz situation to blow over as quickly as possible, Redskins RB Clinton Portis added his thoughts during a radio interview this morning with 106.7 The Fan.

Let’s just say, Portis’ views on female reporters harkens back to the days of Archie Bunker (not for the satired racism, but for the satired misogyny).

D.C. Sports Bog was kind enough to transcribe Portis’ most inflammatory quotes.

"You know man, I think you put women reporters in the locker room in positions to see guys walking around naked, and you sit in the locker room with 53 guys, 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. For the woman, I think they make it so much that you can't interact and you can't be involved with athletes, you can't talk to these guys, you can't interact with these guys.

"And I mean, you put a woman and you give her a choice of 53 athletes, somebody got to be appealing to her. You know, somebody got to spark her interest, or she's gonna want somebody . I don't know what kind of woman won't, if you get to go and look at 53 men's packages. And you're just sitting here, saying 'Oh, none of this is attractive to me.' I know you're doing a job, but at the same time, the same way I'm gonna cut my eye if I see somebody worth talking to. I'm sure they do the same thing."

UPDATE (2:08 p.m.): And Roger Goodell has spoken, according to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello: "The comments are clearly inappropriate, offensive and and have no place in the NFL. We have contacted the Redskins and they will discuss the matter directly with Mr. Portis."

UPDATE (3:29 p.m.): And the Redskins have spoken. From a news release, here's Clinton Portis' statement: "I was wrong to make the comments I did, and I apologize. I respect the job that all reporters do . It is a tough job and we all have to work and act in a professional manner. I understand and support the team on these issues.”

And from Redskins spokeman Tony Wyllie: "The Washington Redskins have a clear and unambiguous policy about being professional on these issues, and we will take the necessary steps to remind everyone about it."

I agree that it is probably inappropriate by what our society deems as inappropriate, but women really need to make up their mind when it comes to chivalry and equal rights, because wanting them both is blatantly hypocritical.



yes, because cat calls are the exact definition of chivalry



there's nothing wrong with what he said b/c it's the truth, but some people will interpret as demeaning.  we're human, and unless ur a-sexual, you're gonna be attracted to one of 53 naked individuals - man or woman.  the stance the nfl is making is analogous to not talking about sex cuz it's bad.  grow up america!  sex isn't bad and it's not bad to want to be with someone.


first off, if she is a lesbian then no she wouldnt want any of those guys

second off, the stance the NFL is taking isnt that "sex is wrong" its the stance that while representing said team you play for, you will uphold the utmost decency and profesionalism. jesus christ is it that hard to comprehend
