Katie Nolan is the digital correspondent on Fox Sport’s Crowd Goes Wild and she is our Yas, Girl of the week. This week Katie posted a Youtube video telling sports fans to not boycott the NFL after the incredibly poor handling of Ray Rice’s assault scandal. Her message, instead, was that women need to fight back and get a seat at the big boy’s table in sports in order to get the respect of the NFL.
She says if women aren’t a part of the conversation in sports media and are sidelined, then the media will never push back on the NFL’s problems with domestic violence and things will never change. We stand by Katie for taking a stand for women in the sports media world and fighting against the NFL’s issues with domestic violence. It’s women like Katie who are making the steps toward a brighter, safer and better world in sports for everyone.
