Many female sideline reporters are dumbasses.
But that doesn’t mean you should treat them badly.
Ron Franklin seems to have a problem understanding that.
According to Sports By Brooks, Franklin engaged in a blowup with a female sideline reporter during a production meeting. According to the report, “As Gilmore, Cunningham and Franklin discussed the subject, Edwards tried to join the conversation. When she did, Franklin said to her, ‘Why don’t you leave this to the boys, sweetcakes.’
“Edwards responded to Franklin by saying, ‘don’t call me sweetcakes, I don’t like being talked to like that.’
“Franklin then said, ‘okay then, a–hole.’”
Franklin was one of the best broadcasters, but his attitude already hurt him once. This can’t be good for his career.
