Sportscaster, Brean Musburger, apologized for his comments about a football player’s girlfriend. During the Alabama/Notre Dame BCS National Championship Game, the camera found Miss Alabama, Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of the Alabama quarterback.
Upon seeing her on camera, Musburger commented, ” Wow, you quarterbacks get all the good looking women, what a beautiful woman, whoa! If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops.”
So my question to you is this: Is this inappropriate to comment on the beauty of a woman?
Could we do a little survey here? YES or NO and give me a brief reason why you think this was OK or out of line.
I find this so weird as football promotes barely clad women to “cheer” for their teams and then makes a big deal about Musburger’s comment. Seems a little hypocritical to me. Maybe we should have the Dallas Cowboy organization apologize for objectifying their cheerleaders and putting them on calendars.
Personally, I find this to be the height of political correctness. The woman won a beauty contest! Yes, she is beautiful and that doesn’t mean pointing it out makes you someone who objectifies women.
I had more of an issue with his comment about young boys throwing footballs to get girls. That seems a bit shallow.
Just my opinions, love to hear yours.
