With this “Jets Cat Call” scandal still brewing, Inez Sainz has had enough. She lashed out as politely as possible at the Association for Women in Sports Media, the women’s group who filed a complaint with the NFL because someone heard New York Jets players making cat calls, rude comments, and whistling in her direction while she was at the team’s training facility doing an interview with Mark Sanchez.
Sainz believes that if the group was acting on her behalf, they should have at least contacted her first, or not file the complaint at all. Sainz wrote in ElUniversal.com.mx:
“I wonder why such an association is respected as the AWSM, within its right to inform about any violations of work conditions for its members, acted so impulsively.
If they were in fact appalled and truly cared about my integrity as a woman and a journalist, then why never call me?”
AWSM has stated that they had tried to contact Sainz numerous times, but to no avail. I highly doubt this, and why would Sainz lie? I know exactly what happened. Some lady, probably jealous of Sainz in some way, heard some players hooting and hollering about the way Sainz looked and what have you, and she got upset.
End of story.
Sainz is a pretty woman, as you can see. And as you can see, she uses her looks to promote herself and score interviews others can’t get. So what? What’s the big deal? It’s her life, her decision. If she didn’t want to file the complaint, then it shouldn’t have been filed in the first place. I mean, Sainz is self proclaimed the Hottest Reporter in Mexico. And she’s a model. This anonymous woman needs to get a life. And anyone else who has a problem with her attire, for that matter. If she thinks Sainz is bad, she should get a look at nearly every weather girl and news anchor in Mexico. She’d probably have a fit.
But Sainz wasn’t done there. In a follow up interview with SportingNews.com, she added that AWSM just wanted attention for themselves. And then she turned her ire towards some members of the media, saying:
“A group of journalists and communicators in their quest to create a scandal have set progress on equality of rights between the sexes in their country back at least 50 years, by questioning whether I was somehow to blame for what supposedly happened considering the fact that my image could be attractive to players.”
Agreed. People love a scandal and they’ll do anything to be the first to “break” one. It’s actually quite sad. Again, she didn’t care, and obviously she wants this kind of attention. I didn’t think it was a big deal then, and I don’t think it’s a big deal now. Keep doing what you are doing Inez.
