In return, I will give him my womanly enlightenment on matters of wardrobe: It’s really not a fashion statement to dress like you’re wearing the entire rack from the dry cleaners, including the tablecloths and napkins. I think I speak for the entire NFL female audience, which comprises 45 per cent of all viewers, when I tell Newton how grateful I am to learn his true attitude toward women. No doubt Dawn Hudson, the NFL’s chief marketing officer, is glad to know it too.
And so are the heads of various companies, who will refrain from hiring him for product endorsements or commercials, because he can’t keep a straight face when confronted with a professional woman.
