Well, I've never seen the inside of Erin Andrews, so...

"Hey, what's wrong with Perkins waitresses?" - Tiger Woods

i said last week everyone in sports media is White Knighting her.

and hwy's she always getting mixed up with controversy?  Remember Fiddy's Indy 500 kiss, Richard Sherman's "DON'T YOU EVER TALK ABOUT ME" incident, and now this?  she has a way of getting caught up in stuff.

I've seen plenty of girls prettier than Erin Andrews in porn films, so I have a hard time buying the argument that she got where she is completely based on her looks. Of course they helped. No one wants ugly people on his TV. But there has to be something more. When Kirk Minihane stuffs his girlfriend's bra with tissue paper and puts on her panties and lipstick, he's wrong when he looks in the mirror and thinks "I could be successful just like Erin Andrews if I could wear this outside of the house. And if my face wasn't so hairy." People would still rather hear what Erin has to say than what Kirk has to say.

I don't know if this is really white-knighting Erin Andrews, but Perkins waitresses around here are pretty fat.

Like, two Erin Andrewses and a Bridget the Midget, fat.

Theaetetus: And just when people were starting to forget you were a douche, you had to go and remind them.



thing is, she should be congratulated for asking that pitcher the question, that really took guts on her part.  the guy calling her a, whatever it was, "gutless biatch" is completely, 180 degrees wrong.  not many male sportscasters would have done that.  but, when the sports media comes out of the woodwork to defend her when she's perfectly capable of doing that herself, that's the white knight part.

she -- at the risk of becoming the white knight -- should be congratulated for having the ovaries to ask the question.  everyone coming to her rescue after the fact is the white knight part.

if andrea kremer did this, or if wojnarowski, or any guy, and then he (or kremer) had been namecalled, non-issue.  complete non-issue.  no one would be rescuing them.  but pretty erin andrews, OMG PERTEKT THE BOOBIES.

2014-07-23 03:28:25 PM  
I think what's getting lost in the derp of these comments so far is that he said this as part of an apology for calling her a biatch earlier.

I used a word to reference Erin Andrews that I shouldn't have used to reference Erin Andrews. I will completely cop to that, I said it, I admit it. [...] I think she stinks at her job. I don't think she's very smart. I think Fox only hired her because she's good-looking. I think if she weighed 15 pounds more, she'd be a waitress at Perkins.

That's some good apologizin'!

That line of reasoning makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I saw a beautiful girl on the beach while visiting L.A., therefore Jane Doe, slightly less attractive than beach girl, didn't get her job as broadcaster of the Channel 7 news in Boston due to her looks.

Bullshiat.  If you don't follow-up after your initial "what was the deal" cupcake, that's not an interview at all, that's a PR move.  Wainwright got a soft landing, which got even softer with Andrews blamed social media instead of asking him why he'd said anything at all about it.

That doesn't excuse this WEEI bozo, but to suggest it took "guts" for Andrews to hold a microphone in front of Adam Wainwright is laughable.
 
2014-07-23 03:33:44 PM  
She's pretty thin. 15 pounds more might actually make her hotter (if it goes to the appropriate places)

The last time I went to a Perkins my waitress was very fat.

Said somebody who's never heard Erin Andrews's voice. No, no, it's amazing the way she moves her lips while all of her voice comes out her nose.

No one with a significant voice calls them gutless b*tches for doing their job, however.

As for why she's involved in the other stuff...because she's FOX Sports' top sideline reporter, which means she's at pretty much every single big sporting event on the sidelines? Not sure that's her fault.

And PR is her job. Let's just simplify this for everyone: If you're employed in a journalism-type profession, your job is PR. There's nobody paying for journalism because all it will do is upset those who pay for your job to exist.

No one's there to ask the tough questions (as though there are any tough questions regarding an All-Star game).

Which is fine, except I was reacting to a poster who suggested that it took a great amount of guts for her to go along with that charade.  Which it clearly didn't.

That doesn't excuse this WEEI bozo,



1)  WEEI bozo is completely in the wrong, no one disputes this.

2)  i doubt any other sports reporter even asks the question, which is why i think she should be commended.  but that's a fine line.  remember March Madness a few years back when that hot CBS reporter asked what's his nuts, the former KC Jayhawks coach something like, "are you going to coach UNC next year?" and she got killed?  didn't he curse on air, something like, "that's a bullshiat question right now"?  Roy Williams, that's his name.  She got killed for that.  she asked a tough question and she got beaten down by some in the sports media (and i'm sure also got defended.  who knows.  long time ago.)

its tough to even ask that kind of question.  to her credit, she did, even if she kinda backtracked with the "don't you love social media?" quip.

I concur, ricky's insane. Just like with his white-knighting comments. You'll notice that no one in the media's out there calling these other people "gutless b*tch"; the only other time someone tried to kiss another sideline reporter, we got kissingsuzykolber out of it; I don't remember a huge swell of people blaming Kolber for Joe's drunken come-on, though I suppose I wouldn't be surprised to find a bunch of Namath supporters acting as though it was her fault for interviewing him in that condition.

One of the things the sports media really needs to work on is knocking off the same crap you always hear in the military - the notion that any woman ahead of you on the chain of command got there by f*cking her way there.

Yanks_RSJ: except I was reacting to a poster who suggested that it took a great amount of guts for her to go along with that charade.


ehhh.  we disagree.  that's cool.

rickythepenguin: emember March Madness a few years back when that hot CBS reporter asked what's his nuts, the former KC Jayhawks coach something like, "are you going to coach UNC next year?" and she got killed? didn't he curse on air, something like, "that's a bullshiat question right now"? Roy Williams, that's his name. She got killed for that. she asked a tough question and she got beaten down by some in the sports media (and i'm sure also got defended. who knows. long time ago.)


From Wiki:


During the 2003 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, [Bonnie ] Bernstein was involved in an incident with University of Kansas basketball coach Roy Williams.  After the Jayhawks narrowly lost to Syracuse, Bernstein, during her post-game interview, inquired about the North Carolina vacancy to which Williams had been linked. Williams, visibly perturbed, suggested a producer forced Bernstein to ask the question, and said, "I could give a (expletive) about North Carolina right now. I've got thirteen kids in that locker room that I love." Williams later apologized for his on-air profanity and accepted the North Carolina job one week later. Responding to the incident, CBS Sports President Sean McManus said, "Bonnie's questions were appropriate. They had to be asked, and her performance was totally professional."

while i'm not perfectly equating a March Madness knockout loss with the All Star Game, but Andrews could have completely ignored what his nuts' comments and just fluffed it with, "what's the all star game atmosphere like, are you gonna miss Jeter, did you bring your family?", and so on.  she should be credited for asking him about the comment he'd made.

You are operating under the assumption that Cardinals PR (or Wainwright's agent) didn't talk to FOX PR to arrange to the "interview".

"What was that all about" is about as soft a question as you can ask, particularly if you're not going to ask anything else once you have an answer.  Andrews didn't do anything at all that anyone holding a microphone with a FOX flag on it would have done in that situation.

I'm not saying it doesn't happen. Just that it's something that doesn't really need to be said. Rare is the high-powered job that someone earns by just being the best at what they do. And most women can't ride their dad's coattails into the business like a lot of dudes do. Nor can they pretend that having played the sport makes them a good analyst.

/sorry NFL studio shows, basically no one on the show adds anything to anyone's knowledge of the game

Yanks_RSJ: You are operating under the assumption that Cardinals PR (or Wainwright's agent) didn't talk to FOX PR to arrange to the "interview".



well, that seems speculative....i don't know.  the ASG for the last several years now has had in-game interviews with players who just got pulled.  I doubt that the Cardinals had the foresight to get in front of the story (the comment he'd made re "yeah, i hot-piped* a few to Jeter") before it got out.  i don't know.  just saying she could have avoided it entirely, but didn't.  is dan patrick going to ask that question live on air, knwoing it could be embarassing?  Rome?

remember the love-fest Jim Gray got at the 1999 ASG when he asked Pete Rose if he was ready to apologize?  Jim Gray got crucified by his brethen.  "wrong time, wrong place, this is baseball's midsummer crown jewel, bad form, Jimmy".  she went there.  that's all i'm saying.


*or whatever that term was.  it wasn't the traditional "grooved", from memory.  something about "piped".

He apologized for using the word "biatch". Doesn't mean he now has to sing her praises at every opportunity, or that he can't still think she's dumb or out of her depth or bad at her job.

// I might have waited a few more days to "wonder" if she farked/smiled her way to the top, though
// he can still be a sexist wanker, but that apology holds

the irony of my initial post being that she's gettign white knighted for dude calling her a biatch, and then being criticized for saying she's been white knighted, to me white knighting her for asking a fairly tough question, all in teh space of like, 4 posts.

I don't see why not, but sideline reporters are useless, regardless of gender. Some are better than others, and demonstrate their versatility when on different assignments, but by and large, they all suck when actually sideline reporting, whether it's a blonde bombshell who may or may not have farked her way up the ladder, or Craig Sager and his f*cking atrocious wardrobe. The nature of the job just does not lend itself to hard-hitting journalism.
