Clinton Portis Sets It Straight

So the other day New York Jets players and coaches were "creating an uncomfortable setting" for TV Azteca reporter Inez Sainz (deservingly so?) as she waited to interview QB Mark Sanchez. The media has really taken this one to the bank, with ESPN unnecessarily dissecting as many angles as possible. NFL officials were reportedly investigating earlier today. But the controversy itself never really grabbed my attention...It was Redskins RB Clinton Portis comments that did.

"You put a woman and you give her a choice of 53 athletes, somebody got to be appealing to her," said Portis. "I know you're doing a job, but at the same time, the same way I'm going to cut my eye if I see somebody worth talking to, I'm sure they do the same thing."

My man Clinton Portis tellin' it like it is. Even though he may be right here in the sense that everyone just needs to relax, some things are simply better left unsaid. He clearly just sparked wildfire with feminist groups who will dig up anything to criticize the NFL. His PR guys already got wind of his gems, and after a few collective tears were quick to send out an adequate apology. Portis will continue to visit the local radio station for more weekly dimes.
