The accused individuals should face punishment (Doyle, 2012) such as match ban or be fined. This will act as warning to others and avoid such instances in future. Failure to punish the culprits will exacerbate the bullying behavior to an extent where women reporters will feel threatened to cover New York Jets ground news.
