The hot topic right now is how Ines Sainz of TV Azteca was harassed and humiliated in the New York Jets locker room after the Monday night loss to the Baltimore Ravens. She went to the national media for help and sympathy. The question is why should anyone be sympathetic to her.

When a female reporter dresses inappropriately on the job and asks for nothing to happen, it is clearly illogical. When you are on the job, it is expected that you dress professionally. Sainz dressed like she was going to a nightclub.

Sainz going to the national media for help and sympathy belongs in Hollywood, not in sports. Had she dressed in a professional manner, she would certainly have my sympathy, as well sympathy from every sports reporter in the country. Folks, it is important to remember that Sainz is the architect of her misfortune. Female reporters can not dress flirty and go into to men's locker room and expect to be treated the same way that male reporters would be treated. I'm sorry, it doesn't work that way.

Colin Cowherd on ESPN's "The Herd" put it perfectly. Not only does he share my viewpoint that Sainz put this on herself, but he provides another example to illustrate his point. He asked the audience would happens when any person drives an expensive car in a bad neighborhood.

There are many reporters that share my viewpoint. In fact, Sainz has criticized the media and said that the woman's movement has been pushed back by fifty years.

Are the New York Jets players and coaches excused from their actions just because Sainz was equally as unprofessional? No, they can all be blamed for what happened. Further, she was not touched, so that's not as serious. She has not threatened legal action, nor does she plan to. Hmmm, something doesn't seem right with this picture. How can she make a big stink about this and not threaten legal action.? She could have been silent and told Roger Goodell about the incident. No, she had to make a big issue about this.
