Agree, they have their rights. But let's say Aaron Rodgers said that comment. Should he or would he be fired from the Packers? A few years ago I had a coworker (woman) who nudged me and said that a fellow workers (male) outfit made him look like a male stripper - true story. Should she be fired for saying such a remark? I just wonder, that unless a behavior is repeated, if one thoughtless remark (with a few exceptions) should get your fired? Just a few years ago, such remarks got you suspended along with you offering apology. Many people learned from their experiences. Should we maybe be more redemptive as a society? Again, I offer these remarks for discussion sake....

I was thinking sideline reporter not studio but your point is well taken with Oliver, Tafoya and Burke - although none are heavy set nor have gray hair like some men do. All these women still look good and relatively young for their age. Men can get away with being overweight, bald or have gray hair. It could be argued that looks for women are more highly valued in media. I know that women have complained for many years that as they age they do not get same opportunities as men do when it comes to media and entertainment aspects like Hollywood...maybe things are changing!

Still missing a female ESPN sideline reporter not fitting the physical profile. She hasn’t been terminated once she hit 50 and is not as thin as the normal.

It’s rare but an example exists.
Michelle Obama criticized Trump for utilizing cages that were built and used by ... Barrack Obama. You seriously can’t make this stuff up. . :lol:

It’s Barrack, not Barack. He built detention barracks so he should be called barrack.

Are you thinking Holly Rowe? She is an attractive enough, normal size woman in my opinion. I don't recall seeing her, but I don't watch ESPN too much. Right or wrong on the person you are thinking of, I guess that's the point we are both making.

For those seemingly disagreeing with me that attractiveness isn't a primary consideration for female reporters, Google female sideline reporters. If you told me they were fashion models as opposed to sideline reporters, I couldn't argue with you.

That's what men seem to want particularly in football. We seemingly want male commentators who are opinionated, knowledgeable, and/or guys you'd want to have a beer with. While we want female commentators who look like sideline cheerleaders. At least that's the general feedback the industry has per the way they hire.

If the company disagreed then yes
