Ines was at the Jets practice facility to do a story on Mark Sanchez when she was the subject of catcalls and stereo typically borish behavior. When Sainz was in the locker room when reports indicate that some members of the team had done some antics towards the reporter. The incident caught the attention of the NFL front office which is reportedly investigating along with the team.
It was also reported that the defensive coach David Thurman encouraged players to purposely throw passes during drills in Sainz’ directions so it would end up next to her on the sidelines. Jets manager Mike Tannenbaum got together with the board member of the Association for Women in Sports Media to discuss the event and to further rectify the situation, the Jets owner Woody Johnson had a word with Sainz about the event to announce that he expects members of the team to conduct themselves respectfully.
Sainz is a former Miss Universe contestant and is known as the “hottest sports reporter in Mexico” so she’s no stranger to receiving attention for her looks and the somewhat provocative clothing she wears on the job. The Jets may have given her a little too much attention however.
The controversy is something of a perfect storm, coming after the Jets were featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks where America saw the team’s head coach Rex Ryan (and others) use a tremendous amount of blue language helping to contribute to the impression that the Jets are not a terribly professional organization.
