    New York Jets owner calls, apologizes to female reporter - ESPN New York

    "Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum called Joanne Gerstner, a board member of the AWSM, on Sunday to discuss the matter. The two organizations were working to schedule an educational and awareness session with the team, according to Jets spokesman Bruce Speight."

    Oh how classic! The Jets and Rex are going to take a "how not to be dicks" seminar. LOL!!!!

    The Jets really seem like a team where the inmates are running the asylum and a frat house. I still think all this swagger and lack of professionalism might end really badly for them.

    It seems not just the players but the big fat ugly REX and his LB coach were throwing balls next to the lady and passing on comments. When the head coach acts like a dick, what else do you expect the players to be? Gandhis?

    Their freakin' coach was instigating the reporter's harassment. Rex Ryan was one of the guys throwing footballs toward her.

    My thoughts exactly, they're to full of themselves. Jabba the Gut and his team have bought into the myth, the hype that he created. Its going to come back and haunt them.

    Unless the seminar is run by miracle workers, there's little hope a making a dent in the thick skulls of these loathsome knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers.

    So when is that Jets butt boy Goodell going to lay down some suspensions? This should be worth a 1 game suspension per player involved.

    Ok, it's not going to happen but I can dream.

    According to the conduct policy, this should have legs. I know it won't, since there is no evidence/ tapes. If they nailed BRurger for a similar action, UNCONVICTED, why aren't the Jets responsible? It was professional misconduct by the organization, as a whole, encouraged by the HC. I don't care what she looks like. Is this the free pass we should have gotten? Where's Arlen sticking up for Equal Rights?

    Oh, ****, I just realized! This was created by Goodell to help the Jest on their quest for 19-0. He realized how it helped us after IT broke out and is using this to help his team go for the promised land. I think I might be right about this.

    There's a big difference between some catcalls, and raping a series of drunk college girls.

    There are quotes from the woman saying she didn't take it personally (some assistant coach thew some footballs in her direction, and then they were catcalling her and/or making fun of her in the lockerroom), and she didn't want or realize that it would become this big thing. Not for nothing, but this "reporter" goes around in skimpy bikinis and skin tight outfits which emphasize her ass-ets.

    This is going nowhere. It's not like they attacked Andrea Cremer in a business suit (which would make me mad). And please don't say I am blaming the victim; I'm not, but if you want to be taken seriously as a reporter, then you don't approach the business like this lady does, and you certainly don't go into a lockerroom filled with proven frat boys and expect more decorum than what happened.

    I don't see this any different than the Lisa Olsen situation, which as you may recall resulted in fines, but no suspensions. Those fines were used to pay for a seminar on "how not to be a dick" for the NEP.

    Taking shots at the beach is one thing. Is that what you mean by, she goes around in bikinis? A lot of women wear bikinis. At the beach.

    What does she wear at work?

    Not that it excuses the neanderthal like behavior at all, but certainly she should dress casually but appropriately for her job.

    Taking the Jests out of this, it does raise a question I've always had: why in the world do professional athletes have to give up basic privacy? Isn't this treating them like dehumanized slabs of meat to have strangers walking around while they clean up from work? This is one of those traditions that is long overdue for a change.

    The reason I have a huge problem with this whole thing is because of the Lisa Olson story. It killed this franchise, and lost a great deal of fans in the process. Why are they not accountable too? That's all I'm asking.

    There's a big difference between some catcalls, and raping a series of drunk college girls. Today 09:09 PM

    Not today there shouldn't, not after we were held so accountable for what happened back in '86. Beyond that, if Rog was honest, he'd put forth the same effort he did with Spygate that he should with this.

    Agreed. The Pats organization got an institutional rape from the NFL front office and Commish over a frikkin' "rules violation". The least that the NFL can do is put this front and center and slap some folks in the JETS organization upside the head with fines and sanctions.

    The New York and Jersey press ought to be all over this story, and call out these louts for their unprofessional behaviour.

    Give it time. It came out yesterday. And huge difference between how Woody is handling it and Victor Kiam.

    Woody apologize immediately and promised to take action so his players would not treat reporters like this in the future. Kiam called Lisa a "classic *****."

    Woody is doing the right thing to mimimize damage control and the need for harsh league action. Victor did everything he could to make the situation worse for the team and mandate harsh league action.

    The public will never convict the Jets for this, never.

    Sounds like a seminar and maybe a small fine if any, The Jets will laughingly put this behind them.

    Wishing it was worse will not make it so. JMHO

    Regardless if Woody recognized it first., We if, I remember correctly, were severely chastised by the league for our poor actions.

    You are right in the fact that Woody is being more proactive than Vic was. My only problem is a simple curiosity.

    Why were we media raped for Lisa, and Spygate, yet they can get away with this, and an infraction similar to Spygate? I guess I'm just a pissed of Pats fan, looking for justice from Hier Goodell.

    No offense intended.

    =======================================================

    The difference is that this reporter was un offended and thought nothing of the encounter, and I have also heard that unlike the Pats the Jets weren't waving at her with there wangers, just some hey hey baby kind of talk.

    Not in the least a Spy Gate situation, time to get over Spy Gate.

    Envisioning Kris Jenkins in sensitivity training is funny. Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but I really doubt it'll take.

    Seriously, though, this has an early lead for 'most ridiculous non-story of the year'. If a network hires someone based on finding the biggest ass they can, don't they forfeit the right to complain after the fact? Her entire job qualification was that she was attractive to the players, and in that regard she succeeded. Good for her. Shouldn't the AWSM spend more effort critiquing networks that objectify women by hiring based solely on physical attributes, and less effort critiquing football players for acting like football players?

    It would be like hiring a male model, sending him into a bar on cougar night to 'interview' the patrons, then being shocked and appalled when he gets objectified. The only outrage is that anyone would claim to not have expected this outcome going in.

    LOL such a stupid story, I don't get women.....You want to be treated with respect and dignity but at the same time you want to dress like a whore???

    No talent reported who is only a reporter cause she is good looking, has no business being in a men's locker room. She set herself up for it and I don't feel bad for her, just like I don't feel bad for women who dress like whores then get raped/assaulted and act like they had nothing to do with it.......

    Grow up and act like a lady or stay the way you are and get what you get:rocker:

    Oh and the "I can dress anyway I want" crowed, you can dress anyway you want but be prepared to suffer the consequences for those actions and I don't feel bad for you.

    Its like me going into the hood and waving around a handfull of money and not expecting to get robed.....Some common sense would be nice ladies.

    My point is this, if a team can get raked over the coals for an infraction such as Spygate, which was an admitted infraction by many SB winning coaches, why shouldn't this be looked at by Goodell? IF the league wanted to improve it's "female reporters" standing, they should have equal standing around the male players, correct? The issue here is that a COACH was involved, and word has it, Ryan was involved as well.

    That's bad leadership, no matter how you slice it. Harassment is harassment, and it's cut and dry.
