Clinton Portis went on The Mike Wise Show this morning which was hosted by Holden Kushner and Brian Mitchell. The subject eventually turned to Ines Sainz because that’s what we all must discuss these days. Dan Steinberg was good enough to transcribe what Portis had to say about the incident. Portis made a sweeping generalization and the league isn’t happy.
“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.”
See, in this picture here she has to pull down the front of her pants to show off the lowest portion of her stomach because her jeans are too tight for her hands in her pockets. I get that she’s allowed to dress however she wants, but much like Wendy Peffercorn, she knows exactly what she’s doing.
Oh, and this, this, this and this. Maybe its just me, but I think this story has legs because there’s plenty of good art to go along with it. Especially, since she wasn’t the one with the original complaint.
Here’s Sainz on FOX News talking about the situation. True to form, she’s wearing a shirt that has a lot of buttons that serve no real purpose.
Tell me your don’t laugh every single time she says “tweeter.”
