A recent poll by Seton Hall University shows that a majority of women think female reporters should be banned from NFL locker rooms. Meanwhile, a recent poll of NFL players shows that female reporters such as Ines Sainz and Erin Andrews should be required in the locker room. (I may have made the second poll up.) Hit me with your best stat Bloomberg.
The telephone poll conducted this week among 1,026 randomly selected adults nationwide found 59 percent of 556 women and 47 percent of 470 men said female reporters should be banned from NFL locker rooms. Thirty-four percent of the respondents said all reporters should be banned. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Personally, I think that this could all easily be avoided if they just had a staging area and let everybody shower up before post-game interviews. Of course, everyone could also just act professional. Expect to see more polls and surveys in the future that both reflect and and contradict this one. Opinions!
