The gloves are off now

HARTFORD, Conn. -ESPN banned staffers from the New York Post from appearing on any of its programming on Wednesday after the newspaper published photos this week taken from a video showing sideline reporter Erin Andrews nude in a hotel room.

The Post published three images from the blurry video Tuesday.

"While we understand the Post's decision to cover this as a news story, their running photos obtained in such a fashion went well beyond the boundaries of common decency in the interest of sensationalism," ESPN senior vice president of communications Chris LaPlaca said in a statement Wednesday night.

Publishing those photos was in really bad taste. It's a no brainer that everyone warm blooded man on this planet would like to see Erin in the buff. I mean seriously!

The blurry pictures only confirm that someone really did video her. Which if you know how to use any of the bit torrent-esque services you are already aware of. Publishing the pictures was not necessary.

You can see the blurry images on their website.

Can you say "traffic generator"?

I knew you could.

They should give a portion of the ad revenues they are making off page hits to Erin.

I'm calling BS on this video, I think she and a boy toy were messing around and pretending to have a "peep" show, there were times that I swear she was posing her goodies for the camera. It's actually fairly good quality. Just another case of someone famous video taping their sexual escapades and scorned lovers posting the video.
