She didn't lose face by trying to sound as ignorant in the moment as Cam did. Female reporters in the not too recent past had to deal with a lot of fucked up shit interviewing players in the lockerroom, and the way you combat that is by staying professional. So when a male player 'drops' his towel in the middle of an interview after a game, a female reporter knows she can't respond hysterically, or flash her bewbies as a countermove. You just keep conducting the interview. It's over anyway. Cam gave a well thought out apology and I don't think he really meant to suggest women can't be NFL reporters because they don't know anything about football.
