The Bears locker room celebration briefly turned X-rated on Monday night after the team's win over the Redskins. After the game, Bears running back Tarik Cohen decided that he wanted to share the team's victory celebration on social media, so he started a video on Instagram Live. Of course, the problem with starting a postgame live stream from an NFL locker room is that at any given moment, there are usually multiple people walking around naked, and the Bears locker room was no exception. In the background of Cohen's video, you can see the offensive lineman stripping, and it didn't take long before he was fully in the buff. Cohen clearly didn't notice this, because yup, he kept filming, which is how you end up with a naked Bears player on the internet. Cohen has more than , followers on Instagram, and it's safe to say that if any of them were watching the video on Monday night, they probably got a little bit more than they expected. I think it's something that you need to do is you learn from it. It was a mistake and nothing that is malicious at all. But it was a mistake so let's make sure that that mistake doesn't happen again to all of our players.

I shouldn't have to change in it and be in front of people I don't know or really don't have any purpose of being near me other than the fact they are interviewing other people. There's no office. There's no other situation in America where you have to do that. It's dated, it's old, and it needs to change. For their part, the NFL Network, owned and operated by the league, quickly apologised for the incident, labelling it "a regrettable mistake by our production team". A spokesman added: "We have procedures in place, but unfortunately those rules were not followed in this instance.

Whitworth, an offensive tackle in his 10th year in the league and a former Bengals NFL Players Association representative, was understandably annoyed. He swiftly demanded answers from both the league and the network. However, while Whitworth received support from several other NFL players, he should perhaps be careful what he wishes for. His idea for an alternative such as a media mixed zone might protect a few sensitive egos but would do nothing to help the league or its players. A mixed zone is where players walk through a barricaded area and journalists are fenced behind waist-high metal grilles. Typically, it either turns into an unruly scrum or, very often, means a player simply walks past without talking to the press. With few exceptions, the EPL and its clubs do a miserable job of ensuring players or even coaches provide much in the way of access to the media, and by extension the public. Whether an athlete should be forced to share their comments is a matter of opinion. Organizations such as the NFL and the professional tennis circuits take a punitive approach, fining those who do not attend mandatory media sessions, as Marshawn Lynch well knows.
I felt like I was 'on call' for when he would be available to see me. Within a cultural group marriage is hard. The man presides over everything. Interestingly, my parents felt the same way about him.
