Threatening letters complain about cheerleaders, female athletes on TV

    The world is full of crazy people. That is all.

    Seems as if the TV crews can't win either way.

    Sending threatening letters, especially laced with insecticide, is always wrong.

    That said, I was disgusted with the pervyness of certain cameramen during my brief stint in TV. Working in the production truck, I often saw the T&A shots cameramen would find during commercial timeouts. Cheerleaders, fans, even some players, coaches, trainers, etc.

    When I reviewed tape brought back to the studio by male college students, it blew my mind how they didn't seem to realize their wandering eyes would be preserved.

    I don't think ESPN/ABC/etc. are in the business of exploiting women through coverage of games, but I understand the mindset the first writer is complaining about.

    I don't understand how Ohio State wearing long sleeve outfits gets them more TV time. Wouldn't the opposite be true (more skin), given the argument?

    We got one of these at my station a couple of years ago. What Cadet's saying is true, but these letters are the rantings of the mentally ill.

    I believe we got the pesticide-free version, though.

    You can make a porn tape from the video shot looking in the windows at the hotel at SkyDome.

    How crazy can he be? The man wants to see more skin on TV. Sounds like 99 percent of male TV viewers.

    Wants to see more skin, but doesn't want the cameraguys in the girl's grill. (3-0 straight 2-seamer)
