Every single female sports reporter is attractive. If you're a hot girl you'd be dumb not to go into that field. It's a job 95% of the female population can't be a part of no matter how much they love sports or how skilled they are.

Oh you're hot? can you ask 3 questions and look into a camera? well you're hired!

What is reverse sexism?

Might be bordering on being against board rules, but for my money, I happen to like the way Reid looks more than most girls who are considered "hot", especially alot of the other female sports personalities out there.

I hate birthday threads, though.

You have an odd definition of the term average. Either that or poor taste in women.

It's funny watching the players get interviewed by Kristin Reid try not to grin from ear to ear. Christian Ehrhoff in particular really struggles with this. Dirty German.

She's done a nice job in camp so far, makes good use of the interview access she gets, and has started to throw in some non-softballs that you wouldn't expect from a team employee. If we made a list of the least competent Vancouver media people covering the Canucks, she'd be a long way from the bottom.

She's cute and she does a really good job. No need to hate.

This is entertainment and in the entertainment industry I want to see attractive people...I see enough ugly people walking around Lethbridge every day.

So? How is this a problem? I mean, if someone is scarred and missing like an eye or something, I don't think lots of people would want to tune in. This isn't radio, the people in front of the camera should be attractive.

If I saw her on the street I'd think she was cute but wouldn't bother looking twice. I do live in Vancouver city proper though so the relative attractiveness of women here might be higher.

And you're projecting your own thoughts onto the players.

I think she is good at her job and am glad to see a woman break into hockey media. But she does not have a voice for broadcasting at this moment, though she does try hard.

Yeah, I watched Bernie Pascall for years out of sheer fascination over the awful toupee.

Um, if the complaint is men only hiring attractive women for shallow reasons, how is that reverse sexism?

Isn't the fact that he's jumping to that complaint simply because she's attractive closer to reverse sexism?

Dirty Slovak.

Maybe this is what Mrs. Pavol saw that sent her into a fit of depression causing her to OD on her medicine?

You guys are being a bit hard no?

women have to work their way up the corporate ladder more so than any man does.

I mean, at what point will this sexist world we all live in realize we are all equal and of course, WE ARE ALL CANUCKS.

I'm not going to lie: I cringed when I saw this thread and was very close to not reading. But I have to say, the only thing sillier than the thread is Ernie's "I'm James Bond, *****es!" response -- one of my favorite second-level-of-absurdity* responses on the internet.

*Me commenting on it brings this to a level three meta-w a n k.

Care to translate that gibberish?





Is this forum entirely populated by barely pubescent boys? I can't understand the group jerk session over this girl who is cute but nothing out of the ordinary.

She's both cute and good at what she does. She certainly asks better questions than most.

But if I were in charge I'd bring in that Mexican hottie and have her asking questions at the oppositions bench during games.

She's good at what she does. Remember the Flames reporter from the prospect tourney? *shudders* Not everyone is suited to talk in front of a camera. ...No matter how "attractive" they are.

Demitra was simply laughing at how ugly Kristen Reid is compared to Slovak women, who tend to be the most beautiful on earth.

Translation: the only thing lamer than people fawning over every pretty girl they see is the guy who takes inconceivably great pains to point out how much he isn't fawning over that girl because she doesn't meet his impossibly high standards.

and where does that place you and the other "holier than thou" people in this thread? Hey, let's come in and call everyone else losers, that'll make us look cool, right?

I like Kristin Reid and think she does a good job. No, she's not below my standards (though admittedly not my type). But her looks aren't out of the ordinary at all, and can't be the reason so many here find her attractive. And that's the last I'll say about it.
