Thanks to Shawn Mitchell for the follow-up.
I give Marcos props for his honesty. I don't agree with what he did, even given the rationale of modesty and I take issue with the story spinning it as him being completely ignored (I didn't, I told him why I was there, and then tried to get back to my job. Also, he was wearing a towel, a perhaps minor, but important detail.) But I appreciate him admitting the basics of the situation.
Also, I'd add that while Marcos may be very soft-spoken normally, he wasn't while he was addressing me.
Thanks also to Eric at the Off-Wing, who fixed a slight discrepancy in his post on the story (he had it as happening in the Galaxy locker room but if there's any locker room that's used to me being around, it's that one).
Eric also asked if the league had responded and here's what I told him:
Yes, they have, actually. The funny thing is that MLS is really a very media friendly league. There are hardly any primadona players who refuse interviews, for example. I've been contacted by league officials and even the commissioner now knows about the situation.
The Crew press people were very apologetic and at the same time, perplexed when they called me, because they said Marcos is a really nice guy, and that there have been women reporters in the Crew locker room before - at least once, they said, and he didn't seem to have a problem.
But they weren't trying to excuse it, and they said they'd talk to him and the entire team as well.
Really, I'm less concerned about an apology, or any disciplinary measures, than I am about it just not happening again.
