Lisa Olson was a reporter forThe Boston Herald
covering the New England Patriots in the 1990s when a player fondled his genitals and she was labeled “a looker” (meaning all she wanted was to look at naked men). She was stalked by angry fans sent death threats, thrashed her tires and stole her property. She fled the country, returning in 1998. It was a watershed moment for women sports journalist.
