Darnell Dockett Weighs In On Ines Sainz Sexual Harassment Kerfuffle

New, 2 comments

Darnell Dockett's Twitter is single-handedly keeping 90 percent of the local sports media employed ... or least busy ... OK, more like entertained.

Today Nine-0 commented on the biggest sex scandal to hit the NFL since Jessica Simpson caused Tony Romo to lose to the Eagles in 2008.

For more on the Sainz "matter," you can read up here.

For a picture of Sainz in tight jeans, you can click here (we know you will).

And really, that's the point that Darnell touched with his tweets, which first basically says "women beware" only to moments later express his respect for women reporters and their right to work wherever they want.

It would be easy to accuse Dockett of flip-flopping, but, in fact, he's right on both fronts.

There's a level of responsibility on the part of the reporter to dress professionally and save the sexy outfits for 'da club. And at the same time, there's no excuse for the athletes (allegedly) harassing her.

Forced to take sides (because that's what we do), I am going to side with my inner caveman and put the onus on the reporter. The locker room belongs to the players and while the media are allowed in to do their job and help the team promote their product, it is still a locker room.

Plenty of professional female broadcasters have no issues with the Jets or other teams and besides, if I walked into the Phoenix Mercury locker room in a tank-top and Speedo, I would certainly expect some cat-calls ... or some other form of screaming.
