TV Reporter Harassed In Concourse Following Georgia’s 10-3 Win Over Clemson

Videos by OutKick

College football fans were busy making fools of themselves on Saturday night following Georgia’s 10-3 win over Clemson.

The hijinks took place after the game when reporter Lyndsey Gough of WTOC 11 out of Savannah, Georgia was looking to do a live shot in the concourse, and a bunch of dudes looking for their 15 minutes of fame kept jumping in Lyndsey’s live shot.

Eventually Lyndsey asked the desk whether she should move to avoid any sort of conflict, but it seems more and more knuckleheads wanted to take part in the scene.

Reports say that many folks crossed the line and were trying to touch the reporter intentionally.

It’s ridiculous that people simply trying to do their jobs not only get harassed, but also can’t have the necessary space to do their jobs.

Of course another factor is alcohol, which is clearly involved with these jokers who were trying to rattle Gough.

  1. Touching her was wrong, but there’s not a sports reporter in the world who hasn’t had people trying to photobomb their live shots while still inside the stadium. You’d think she’d be used to it in Georgia.

    As said, touching should have happened.

  2. Unfortunately, we live in an increasingly amoral and impolite society. Learn to deal with it or get another job without the public contact.

  3. Maybe set up right in the middle of the concourse as the game lets out next time? Oh wait, she did. Nothing happened to her, no one groped her, just a bunch of drunks yelling into the camera…that was setup in the middle of the concourse. That’s the way it is after EVERY game.
