Tv Axteca reporter Ines Sainz calls herself "the hottest sports reporter in Mexico." She's not stranger to getting attention. What happened at New York Jets practice session over the weekend, however, may have crossed a line.
A reporter for a Mexican TV network says on her Twitter account she felt "very uncomfortable!" at a Jets practice Saturday where a coach appeared to throw footballs in her direction and players called out to her in the locker room.
TV reporter Ines Sainz tweeted in Spanish that she felt "very uncomfortable!" and that she was in the Jets locker room waiting to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez while trying "not to look anywhere!!"
The NFL and the Jets are looking into the way players and coaches treated her during her visit to the team's practice.
The New York Post updates with her Tweet from today:
"Thanks everyone for your support. I already spoke to the NFL, which will decide if there will or will not be consequences. I can say that at the time I didn't want to pay attention to what was happening but the rest of the media heard clearly and in solidarity have denounced what happened, hoping that there is always a respectful climate."
Bloomberg has the statement from Jets owner Woody Johnson:
“The New York Jets believe that reporters have a job to do and it is our obligation to provide them with proper and professional access,” the Jets said in an e-mailed statement. “(Johnson) stressed to Ines that he expects all members of the Jets organization to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. We will continue to work with the league to gather the facts and take any appropriate steps necessary to maintain a respectful environment for the media.”
Update: Late today Sainz talked to CNN:
