NFL Sideline Reporter Makes A Startling Confession
Former Fox Sports sideline reporter Charissa Thompson just made a startling confession. She said that sometimes she would just make things up.
Thompson – who currently co-hosts Amazon Prime’s pregame show – admitted on the Pardon My Take podcast that she would fake it when she wasn’t able to get a hold of the coach at halftime: “I was like, ‘I’m just gonna make this up’… Because first of all, no coach is gonna get mad if I say, ‘Hey, we need to stop hurting ourselves, we need to be better on third down, we need to stop turning the ball over and do a better job of getting off the field.’ They’re not gonna correct me on that. So I’m like, it’s fine, I’ll just make up the report.”
Deadline says several other reporters, like ESPN’s Molly McGrath and CBS’s Tracy Wolfson, called Thompson out, calling her admission “not normal” and “absolutely not ok”. Amazon has not officially responded to Thompson’s admission.
Do you have a problem with Thompson’s comments? Should she address them on-air?
