In other news, Jerry Jones has a body guard named Roosevelt.  For some reason I find that funny.

Why the hell do we need reporters in the locker room?  99% of athlete quotes are boring and don't say anything interesting.  How about you guys write an analysis of what you saw on the field and skip the quote, or if you need a bland slice of coach-speak take it from the press conference?

This does not answer the real question: Who is Line 4 Guy?

I don't understand why there isn't more of a push to end locker room interviews altogether. If you stop and think about it, it's utterly insane that they do this. The media doesn't expect to be allowed to interview a firefighter or a CEO half naked in the shower. The setting is ridiculously uncomfortable for, well, people of any sexual orientation you can think of. And it essentially treats the athletes like livestock rather than adults, which, I would argue, contributes in a small way to them not acting like adults.

So you're saying that if I worked Dallas Cowboy games, I could potentially see a gangbang at a gloryhole?

Good to know.

I suppose that's one way to cheer up a down locker room.

That's what know-it-all columnists do.  Beat reporters are there every day, and while the quotes they get are frequently dull, there is a lot of information you can acquire from players/coaches "off the record" that helps provide a little more insight to your audience.

If you're a reporter and you ask the right questions in a civil manner, it's a mutually beneficial relationship.  Gangbangs are frequently just a mad dash to get a quote so I'd consider those a little less productive.

And yes, that is an industry term.
