I was too depressed after Tampa Bay’s 23-17 loss at Tennessee on Sunday to watch the post-game show. Now, I am thankful for that foul mood.
While WTVT interviewed one member of the Bucs’ team, another player’s member was on display. During the 6 pm broadcast, the station issued this statement:
Earlier in the Bucs’ postgame there was an inadvertent shot and we apologize for that.
Yes, an inadvertent shot of a penis.
Oh. Lord. I decided that for the sake of this post, I should probably try to find the video. I found where it had been posted by Play 98.7, but FOX had already removed that version. I thanked my lucky stars.
Then I did something stupid. I used Google to see if the video was still up elsewhere. It is. If you feel like seeing an unidentified Bucs player sans clothes from the waist down, be my guest. And no, the video is NSFW unless your work allows you to look at naked men. Maybe FOX will do us all a favor and remove this video as well.
We’ve heard plenty of arguments about whether or not women should be allowed in locker rooms (my stance, as long as male reporters are allowed to be there, female reporters must be allowed to be there) but this incident should be enough to start a new round of “Should video cameras be allowed in locker rooms?”
