Reporter says she accepts Jets owner's apology

[Updated, 6:34 p.m.] The owner of the New York Jets has apologized to a TV Azteca reporter following allegations that Jets personnel harassed her at practice this weekend, and she has accepted, the reporter told CNN's Rick Sanchez on Monday.

The NFL says it is investigating media reports that Jets players behaved inappropriately - including allegedly hooting and hollering at her in their locker room - when Ines Sainz visited the team Saturday to interview Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for the Mexican TV network.

Sainz said Monday that Jets owner Woody Johnson called her to apologize. ESPNNewYork.com reported earlier Monday that Johnson said he offered an "open apology" to her.

"I accept the apologies, and I said thanks to him for the concern and all the rest of the team, because he promised that he is going to make everybody on his team respect … women," Sainz said on CNN's "Rick's List." "And I think the important point is that women deserve respect in any profession, so I think it's going to happen."

Sainz said that although she told Johnson not to worry, she did feel a little uncomfortable because of players' behavior in the locker room, and that she thinks the behavior was unacceptable.

"I think that it’s not good that this kind of thing happened, and it mustn't happen anymore. I'm agreeing with the idea that it's good that everybody knows that a woman or a man deserve the same treatment in the locker room," Sainz said.

According to the New York Post, Sainz claims that while she was standing on the sidelines at practice, Jets coach Rex Ryan and a member of his staff overthrew passes so they would land near her.

Then, when she entered the locker room to interview Mark Sanchez, she said she heard players discussing her.

"I try not to hear anything, try not to pay attention. My cameraman told me, 'Don't look on the right, don't look at the left," she said. "But I really feel the noise and all the environment was talking about me."

She said she never felt she was in danger in the locker room. Later, she said, other reporters said they heard the players say things about her that she didn’t hear.

"One colleague – one female colleague – came with me and [told] me, 'I'm so sorry. It mustn't happen. It's not OK,'" Sainz said. "So I tried to calm her. … I really know that she [heard] something that I didn't hear, and the rest of the media … heard things that I didn't really hear. So I really appreciate the concern about it."

[Original post, 9:58 a.m.] The New York Jets think this is their year. They were one game from the Super Bowl last season, were just featured on HBO’s NFL documentary series “Hard Knocks” and their coach Rex Ryan is on the cover of this week’s New York Times magazine and seems to love putting himself and his team in the spotlight.

So you’d think that with their season starting tonight with the first game in their brand new stadium, on Monday Night Football no less, they’d be thrilled to be on the front page of the New York tabloid papers. But today’s publicity isn't the kind of publicity the Jets really want - the league is investigating whether coach Ryan, a member of his staff, and some of his players behaved inappropriately toward TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz.

Sainz, working with one of the most popular Mexican TV networks, was at the Jets camp Saturday to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez.

According to the New York Post, Sainz claims Ryan and assistant coach Dennis Thurman overthrew passes so they would land near her. The Post also says Jets players allegedly hooted and hollered with Sainz walked in the locker room.

Sainz, former Miss Spain, tweeted that she was “dying of embarrassment” according the Post.

Sainz' Twitter page

Sainz, being her own Monday morning quarterback, addressed the concerns in an interview with a TV Azteca reporter, saying while she was embarrassed, she didn't realize it was going to become that big of a deal.

Sainz told her colleague that she did notice that footballs were being thrown her way but, “to be quite honest, it didn’t bother me… I took it as a joke, and none of the footballs actually hit me.”

“It was definitely a joking tone, very amicable," Sainz said, regarding the tone Sanchez had with her. “I wasn’t offended.”

But she did say in the interview that she didn't hear everything said about her - and apparently several other members of the media took the interactions much more seriously. She added perhaps they heard something she hadn't.

“I was surprised to wake up on Sunday and have a call from the NFL , saying that they wanted to talk to me about what had happened at the Jets; and I asked… what happened?" Sainz told TV Azteca. "And they said well there is a pretty powerful accusation of harassment and then it was at that point I realized the magnitude of what had happened. “

The NFL says it’s investigating and The Association for Women in Sports Media says the Jets and the league have been responsive to their concerns. They also say on their website that they plan to hold an educational session for the Jets this week or next.

The Jets are one of the favorites to go the Super Bowl this season, but the New York Daily News’s Gary Myers looks at how this incident could derail the team if they’re not careful.

      The NFL requires the players to handle themselves accordingly........why don't we hold the reporters the same? What do you expect a bunch of guys who hit each other for a living with a ton of testosterone suppose to do when she is dressed like that on the side lines? Give me a break! If someone was really harassing her then yes someone should do something. She doesn't even think anything was a big deal.....it was most likely other reporters that were not getting the attention they wanted. More power to her for getting more face time and interviews with the players.

      Any woman who is a sports reporter should NOT be upset over this behavior from the Jets. Most of these woman dress unappropreately at the events they are covering. As Dan said above, men are hardwired this way. And he's absolutely right....if woman don't want men looking at them or making comments, stop wearing tight fitting, low cut blouses and short skirts! Dress professionally!!

      They would scream, whistle and remark what they would love to do to him but yet he would brush it of with the smile just like any other handsome guy. Women have to understand that equality mean equality in every aspect of life. No double standard. Also mens locker means men's not coed.

      As a 100% hispanic woman I can honestly say that if Ines Sainz wants to be taken serious, then she should seriously go to a football practice looking proffessional and not like a teenager at a high school game. I know we as hispanic women can dress sensual and provocative, that is our nature. Has anyone not seen Telemundo? or any of the other hispanic channels? sometimes I feel embarrassed because the women are so provocative. I am sorry but I don't feel like there should had been such emphasis on how some of the players and coach behaved. If anyone gets fined or in trouble then the reporter should also get fined. I feel the "ownership factor" should be played by both sides.

      Some people might want to read the ariticle before opening their pie-hole. This reporter did nothing, no reporting harrassment or anything. Somebody overheard what was going on and filed a complaint. Notice how she responded when she was called by the NFL, “I was surprised to wake up on Sunday and have a call from the NFL , saying that they wanted to talk to me about what had happened at the Jets; and I asked… what happened?" Sainz told TV Azteca. "And they said well there is a pretty powerful accusation of harassment and then it was at that point I realized the magnitude of what had happened. “

      I detest when people can't mind their own fracking business, geez. If the woman was being harrassed in her mind, then she will file a complaint. No help needed.

      i'm a woman and an avid sports fan and i think the jets players are wrong but should not be punichsed. afterall, a woman has to be aware that she is entering a locker room full of hormonal men who are just being macho. if a man came into a locker room of teenage or college aged ladies we would be hooting and hollering and checking out his goods as well. on the flip side as a reporter you have the best of both worlds cause you can check the goods out, get them on camera and interview the hottest jock in the locker room.

      What do you expect hanging out in a MEN's locker room? She probably was wearing suggestive clothing as well. What kills me is when a woman goes out with short mini skirts and a pile of make-up, and gets offended when guys look her funny. If you are being suggestive, than you shouldn't wear clothing like that. If you don't want guys looking at you funny than don't go in the locker room. Wait to talk to the quarterback OUTSIDE. hmmm thats a though.

      The NFL needs to require sensitivity training to all teams and especially first year players. The NFL also owes Inez Sainz an apology. The NFL has to investigate all NFL teams for this kind of behavior because it is obvious that female reporters don't always report these incidents for fear of reprisal. The NFL's image is paramount and they can't afford the backlash from this.

      Seriously? First of all why would any self-respecting woman sportscaster or no, want to be in a men's locker room period; as was mentioned below men aren't interviewing in the womens'. Secondly, still on the self-respect note: DON'T DRESS THAT WAY and you'll likely get fewer comments. In theory, I believe as women, we should wear what we want when we want however, use some common sense and dress for the occasion. I think what we're seeing here is yet another example of a second rate bimbo who craves not only male but media attention. Congratulations honey, you'll be making millions by this time next year and likely be the star of your own reality show.

Sorry but if she doesn't want to be looked at they have full body robes that she can wear or she can wear clothes that are no so flattering. Second she is walking into a locker room full of dozens of testosterone filled men and she doesn't think she is going to be looked at. That's like thinking you can drink yourself into a coma and you have no chance of dieing. This is a display of over political correctness.

Everyone has the right to use the weapons they decide to get the interviews but you must face the consequences. I've seen this lady sitting on the knees of soccer players, happily joking about pmc sentences. I've seen her using her charm to get what she wants. And I have nothing against that (everyone chooses its strategies to get what it wants) but if after playing the doll you become a doll don't complain and face it.
      Of course we women have to have the same respect in locker rooms that our male mates, but, we have to manage our work with the same respect than what our male mates do, so professionally, seriously, and far away from using our curves to get what we want.

      I think this is completely ridiculous! Women shouldn't be in locker rooms with half naked/all naked men to begin with. Who is there saying it is wrong for the men to be uncomfortable to be without clothes just because a female thinks she deserves to be there?
      Also, if she claims to be a "professional" she should dress like one as well. She dresses like her profession belongs in vegas, not on the side lines of an organized sport. I don't think anyone deserves to be dealt with like that regardless of how they dress, but if you want to call yourself a professional, you should act/dress like one.
      And women wonder why they still gain very little respect in the world!?! HA!

      Let's be normal human beings for once here (which I think she is being by accepting the apology and not turning it into a federal case) and let it drop.
      Third-I am so glad this is a headliner because then it feels like to me there are no new horrible atrocities occurring in the world that took center stage. Of course there are always...but when a hot reporter gets ogled is a headliner I feel more peaceful.

      Woman need to stay out of an NFL locker room. Period. I played football. It is a safe haven for the players. But, if I become a reporter, let me go to a female tennis locker room and hang around the showers and dressing area or interview an NBA player putting her bra on. See how that goes for me , hmmmmmm?

      Are you kidding me? To let any woman (let alone an attractive, provocatively dressed, young woman) into a men's locker room and then hear her complain about harassment? Who's doing the harrassing?? There was a time when we respected boundaries in this country. Women should never be allowed into a men's locker room.

      OK – I don't understand why she would be shocked! She is a cute chick, dressed casually (not professionally), and going into a men's locker room!!! My opinion – she likes the attention from the guys and really likes all this stupid attention she's receiving from the media.

      If it really did offend her – then she needs to get a tougher skin or a new profession.

      When a woman dresses with half her chest hanging out, skin tight clothing, she is not trying to impress another woman. She is trying to garner attention from men and that is all. We women need to start taking responsiblity for the things we personally do. Dress se-y for your own man, not everyone elses. There are lots of clothes that show off a hint of your assets but not the whole picture.

      Honestly I think it's absolutely ridiculous that she made such a big deal out of the "inappropriate" calls to her. When a woman wears skin-tight clothing in a locker room full of men - where many are in various states of undress at that - how can you expect anything else? There needs to be locker room regulations by the NFL concerning opposite genders entering the room. I think it should be prohibited. But people are crazy nowadays.

      Personally I feel she can dress however she wants. I'm a guy and also a smart human being and there is obviously a time and a place for certain behavior. If I wanted to whistle at a girl the time to do that would not be in a locker room filled with reporters reporting on my every action. Would everyone prefer she wore a Vail to work? Shes a hott woman and thats not her fault. The Jets were wrong because if other reporters felt Ines was being disrespected than obviously the player's behavior was not acceptable, regardless of what she was wearing.

      Do you have any idea how many women chase after NFL players. This is America man, they got what everybody wants , youth, fitness,money and fame. These guys have to run away from women, not towards them. They were just joking around and she didn't even know what was going on. Had she known, she probably would have laughed it out. The fault is in the person who reported it to the NFL. I see a Taliban mentality here. Plus, what is the problem with what she dresses? Regardless of what a woman is wearing. That does not gives anyone the right to harass or disrespect her. However, this was not harassment, it was just a joke. Its only harassment when its unwanted and progresses even after it is known to the perpetrator.

      I think all women in this thread just need to read Blah Blah's post. He said it all. Oh and I have three daughters and I would never support them working in this industry because I know that things like this would happen. Most of the players spend half their time on the field practicing or playing and the other half chasing women at strip clubs. So why are you surprised when they hoot and hollar at a fine woman like that in the locker room where they are not dressed or half dressed. That is plain stupid. The harrassment law should not apply in this setting at all!!!!

      I think men or women reporters should stay out of MEN'S locker rooms and it has nothing to do with women's rights or equality. If a woman wants to do an interview, she can do it outside of the men's locker room and that applies to men. There is a place and a time, and a woman in a man's locker room is not the place or the time. I Repeat this should apply to men reporters too. I think the NFL and the media want the cake and eat it too. Never tease a hungry dog. BY the way, is a man reporter allowed in a women's locker room?
