Defending Erin Andrews

retardfaceTyler Ohmann thinks Erin Andrews orchestrated the inappropriate nude videos of herself which are floating around the internet. Therefore, he is on my shit list.

Who the hell is Tyler Ohmann, you ask? Well, he's a complete moron. Aside from that, he moonlights as the "sports editor" of the University Chronicle for St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. Me being a fellow Husky, I can't decide whether I'm more irritated with his views on the matter, or the fact that we attend the same institution. Too bad they don't offer a Common Sense course for guys like him.

She's behind these tapes about as much as she likes being stalked by handicapped Georgians. Yeah, that totally happened.

Before I continue my rant, most of you know I'm generally not an angry person, and it's incredibly difficult to offend me. However, it's articles like these from this past Sunday by scumbags like Tyler that piss me off to the point of clenched fists.

I feel like walking around town until I find this d-bag. When I did, I'd kick him square in the nuts, and videotape it. Then, I'd put the video on the internet and tell everyone he paid me to do it. Instead, I'll write a quick rebuttal...

Dear Dickhead,

Not only was your article poorly constructed, it was chock full of idiotic, tactless remarks. I realize it was an opinion piece, but let's get a grip on the English language, specifically grammar, before we call ourselves sports editors, alright?

Pretty sure if anyone spied on you in your hotel room, they'd find you either playing World of Warcraft or rubbing one out, likely to Erin Andrews' 3-minute video clip.

Now to the point. Andrews is the victim here. She didn't pay someone to post nude, voyeuristic videos of her ironing her pants and curling her hair on the internet. The woman has class, which is something you clearly lack. Also, she knows her stuff. Though she is attractive, she's not just another pretty face. The lady was raised in the business and it shows.

Keep up the fantastic work,
Sooze


On that note, head on over and give Tyler a piece of your mind. It'd be worth the two seconds it takes to register to let him know what a dumbass he is.

God that guy looks like a tard.

IFChris said...

But his argument is very convincing. You know, this one:

Well, I'm a dude that wanted to see her naked and therefore, she wanted US to see her naked and so she went and constructed this elaborate ruse just to give us what we and she wanted...

Or something equally idiotic.

Bob said...

So she's getting paid a lot by ESPN and is already worshiped on the internet, fully clothed by the way, which means she doesn't need to stoop to nudity to get the fame she already has.

Yet, she takes a chunk of her money she earns to pay some perv to video tape her in the nude and allow the millions of obsessed fans to "use it" and stalk her even more?

Fame + money > less money + nude tape on internet + more stalkers

Right, it all makes complete sense that she'd be behind this.

What a effing moron

MH said...

If she wanted the world to see her naked, wouldn't she call up Hef and get paid millions of dollars for a spread in Playboy?

good point

"Pretty sure if anyone spied on you in your hotel room, they'd find you either playing World of Warcraft or rubbing one out, likely to EA's 3-minute video clip."

That would be 100% the case.

Brandon said...

The only sport that guy plays is pocket pool.

Eric (Extra P.) said...

I'm going to make a prediction here. Tomorrow, this dipshit is going to write another article claiming that he was "being satirical" and we "just didn't get it".

Andrew said...

I sent that story to Carlos Mencia asking for a comment, and it just came back.

"Dude, that's hack, dee dah dee!"

Expect an Erin Andrews joke from him in his next set.

You're welcome.

Go Huskies. Wooo.

God, my brain just hurts now.

Jacob said...

I love how he used the word "surreptitiously" like he knew what it meant. I hope SCSU's paper pulls the article and issues an apology for letting this kis spread his horribly insensitive opinion all over the internet.

pookeyguru said...

Here's what I don't understand: Why does it matter WHAT she was doing?

I didn't check out the video when it was originally aired; if I really wanted to watch porn I'd just buy it. I don't usually buy porn, and watching a video that someone used to peep on her? Uh no.

I don't understand where Rachel Nichols comes into play either. Then again, I don't watch enough of ESPN's coverage to know the difference, and frankly, I don't really care whose better looking between the two to begin with.

This is one of those stories you just ignore for as long as you can, and when you can, keep ignoring it then.

Jenn said...

I left him a comment.

I hope he gets canned or that FARK gets this and he gets obliterated by the readers there.

What an f-ing a*shole.

Family Fitness Files said...

Well, Sooze, you pretty much said everything I would've said about this. Let me just add that I think he would've been found rubbing one out WHILE playing World of Warcraft. Probably the only multitasking skill of which he is capable. I just want to add: Bravo to ESPN for stepping up and defending her by banning Post reporters after they ran stills of the clip. Good to see they haven't lost their common sense.

Kristen said...

I've tried for 5 minutes to be able to leave a comment but it keeps saying I'm not logged in. Whatever. He's an idiot. Great post and defense of Erin.

Caryn said...

I keep thinking I should write something about Erin Andrews, but then I just keep fervently hoping it will go away.

Clearly not.

A lot of people - guys particularly - forget that sex crimes are not about sex. They're about power. Photographing Erin Andrews surreptitiously wasn't about seeing what she looked like naked, it was about asserting power over her: you might be famous and on ESPN, but I can take naked photos of you, publish them, and in doing so, put you in your place, which is that of a sexual object, because a woman's worth in this society can only be determined on the basis of whether I, a heterosexual male, want to 'hit that' or not.

I am tired of aspiring sportswriters (and I use the term loosely) thinking that they way they can draw attention to themselves, and therefore get a real job doing this, is to create some kind of sensational story and get people to link to it. I am tired of so-called sportswriters putting up opinion pieces masquerading as investigative journalism. And I am really tired of guys being so threatened by strong, successful women and taking it out on them by attacking them. Again, it's all about power.

I don't even like Erin Andrews. I could give you six pages on why. But I find myself now being one of her staunchest defenders because of this bullshit.

I hate giving this douche attention but thank you for writing it.

I'm sure he's quickly turned off commenting on his site once he realized that the comments weren't going to be 50 other dudes being all dudely and stuff.

Sooze said...

Caryn - GREAT points. I struggled heavily with whether or not to write this post. I try to keep things light on BLB, which is why I hadn't tackled the Erin Andrews video issue yet. The whole situation angered me and I felt awful for her as soon as I saw it. It's disgusting and absolutely a form of sexual abuse.

Giving this a-hole attention (whether negative or not) via a post of my own may not have been the right move, but I ultimately thought that if even one of BLB's commenters went over the SCSU's site to give him their two cents, it would be worth it.

Thanks again for commenting.

Matt H. said...

They must have taken comments down for that post. It says there are 9 on the front page, but only 7 show up. Also, when I log in, it says to log in again, no comment box. Cowards.

Scott Bradley said...

I tried and tried to either write a letter to the editor or make a comment on numbnutz column but I kept getting rejected

Suss said...

Sure takes a lot to make this guy look like George Will.

Paneech said...

It's a shame that another journalist, and I use the term loosely, got it wrong again. Thanks Sooze for pointing out what a schmo this wannabe Perez Hilton is.

TJ said...

Here is Tyler's Facebook page. If its attention he wants, I'm sure many people would be happy to oblige. That's the beauty, he can say what he wants, but that doesn't mean there aren't consequences for his actions. I'm sure he will be working the McDonald's drive thru late shift in the very near future.

What's wrong with Warcraft? Or masturbating, for that matter.
