Saw this after looking at the Roethlisberger link. What the hell is wrong with people. That is just sick.
OT - Erin Andrews video
At least one of the links is distributing a virus.
You can get the real video from The Pirate Bay virus-free.
She's probably pretty upset about this now but this is going to be a huge career boost for her ala Paris Hilton.
Something tells me that's not the kind of career she's after.
Her career is going to explode now in any way she wants. She is going to be famous outside of just the stalky college football fan world. I would bet one of my paychecks that she will be getting either a multi-million dollar book deal out of this or hosting a reality show. This video is probably humiliating but it's going to be worth literally millions to her.
Your underlying assumption that she will be happy about the whole thing is very troubling. Don't impute yours or other's low standards to her. We should not be so sexist as to assume that she would have taken the trade, of her dignity for millions, up front. There are many of us out there for whom money is not as important as many other things in life - such as having a respectable, dignified career, which includes being respected by your peers. For a female journalist in a male-dominated sport, I would bet this type of 'exposure' is just the opposite of what she would have accepted millions for, in foresight or hindsight.
he's saying she is happy about it or would have chosen for this to happen. But he may be right that in the end she will profit at least financially.
Worse yet, there are millions out there wondering right now how to get their hands on this video.
Getting this is like receiving stolen property and committing assault all at once.
Evil. I like it.
on Friday. Don't go looking for the video, it has been removed from all sites and is now being use to spread a virus.
I heard that this virus only affects HP computers. This HPVirus can't be that bad then, we're probably only carriers. Totally worth it. Totally.
Please please PLEASE tell me you're kidding. Maybe my sarcasm meter is broken.
Sorry, my sarcasm meter wasn't turned on! Definitely a bad attempt at an HPV joke. I'll scratch that one from my routine.
I have a virus free link to the video---for what it's worth, it's pretty blurry capture of her styling her hair nude, and only tells you what you already know: that EA has a hot, tan, thin body. Only at one point can you even make out her face.
sporting the hardwood. I didn't know there are virus free links still.
....where is this link
Dude, why are you so desperate to see this? Come on
I'm pretty sure it will get searched out and taken down (her lawyers are doing an excellent job of this so far). Maybe we can start a non-obvious thread and post it there? I'm sure Brian would still have something to say about that...so perhaps email would be best.
It will never get taken down. Torrent sites will have it forever.
I'm sorry, you don't understand how torrents work. This, along with the rest of the internet, will NOT be up on torrents forever. Torrents have a pretty steep decay, once people have it downloaded (and figure out it pretty creepy) they stop uploading.
It will however, stay up forever on someones backwater dirty website where it gets 14 page views every 6 months.
I heard 1 of the radio jocks talking about the video saying it was hot. I found that hard to believe considering she was just changing clothes. Also, anyone know how they got that?? I heard they used a special camera that reverses peep holes(Kramer from Seinfeld must have hatched this idea). If this in fact true, did they wait outside her door...seems uber creepy.
Yeah, pretty much every aspect of this story is creepy
you are not the one video taping her through the peephole? I think your saying this to get the heat off;-)
naked, and she is doing some sort of ass crunches while watching herself in the mirror. She likes looking at her own ass.
Meh. It's pretty blurry. Probably not worth downloading. You can't even see her face (that's not saying much though she is at best a 6/10 in the face department.)
she is 8/10.
IMO. Great overall look--before the camera gets too close. Nice body, face is 6.
that doesn't quite make sense about that theory is the sound. How did a cell phone camera or whatever they used pick up all the sounds through the door? It seems like there had to be more to it than that.
Newsflash - Being a celebrity (especially a hot celebrity) means people will try to see you naked. I feel like people make a smaller deal about your average sex-tape.
It's not a surprise, but it's still awful. I have no problem seeing my favorite female celebs naked, so long as they knew about being photographed/filmed that way.
That may be true about sex tapes, but there is a good reason that less of a deal is made about them. 99% of the time, celebrity sex tapes are intentionally filmed by the couple but are usually then stolen and released to the public. This is embarrassing, or in Kim Kardashian's case, a PR blessing.
In Erin Andrews' case, a peeping Tom filmed her without her knowing and against her will. This is not Britney Spears neglecting to wear underwear and giving a beaver shot to waiting photographers. Someone violated Erin Andrews' privacy while she was doing nothing out of the ordinary and merely going about her everyday life. I don't know firsthand, but I think that such a thing can have traumatizing effects similar to those of rape. This is not some case of ditzy or loose behavior; someone was victimized and exploited.
Spot on. Unlike other cases, Erin did nothing to cause this to happen.
It's got to really suck to be a female sports reporter sometimes.
So... Many.... Jokes....
All in bad taste. Very few even remotely funny. But still... so many.
Right after I posted that, I figured it could lead to some tacky jokes, but you got there before I could edit it.
Seriously though, people like Andrews probably have to put up with way more garbage than any male reporter would ever have to.
I don't remember anyone complaining when she was named Playboy's "sexiest sportscaster". At worst, being an attractive female is a double-edged sword. More often than not, it's a huge advantage. Women like Lesley Visser, Heather Cox, and Alex Flannigan would have never gotten onto national TV if they weren't attractive and female.
There's a substantial difference between being named Playboy's "sexiest sportscaster" and having one's privacy invaded in this way.
At the very least, you seem to be arguing that Erin Andrews should almost expect something like this to happen, which I think is a terrible indictment of society. More overtly, you seem to be saying that this is no big deal simply because her looks are, "more often than not, . . . a huge advantage."
But even if that is true, that does not justify the video. As another poster astutely (and more eloquently) observed, Erin Andrew's privacy and security has been violated without her permission. That should never happen, regardless of her position, her looks, or whether those looks usually work to her advantage. It's inexcusable.
Nothing can justify the actions of a peeping tom. Not whether the victim is female, whether they are hot, whether they are a celebrity, or whether playboy names them the sexiest person alive.
"Nothing can justify the actions of a peeping tom. "
I didn't say otherwise. This is an incredibly rare case. What I am saying is that female sideline reporters don't have some kind of hard life compared to their male counterparts. As a sports sideline reporter, you are still a lot better off being attractive and female than you are being male.
Ok I see your point. But how is that relevant to this situation?
It kinda isn't. It's more a response to the statements...
"It's got to really suck to be a female sports reporter sometimes."
"people like Andrews probably have to put up with way more garbage than any male reporter would ever have to."
Just to clarify. I am NOT saying that it is OK to videotape somebody without their consent and release it on the internet. I just don't want this to become a broad generalization about the woe of women in this profession (especially attractive ones).
... anyone have a link to that peeping tom video of Brad Nessler drying off after a shower? A... friend of mine was... uh... looking for... that.
