Briggs: I Don't Regret What I Said

    Nearly 22 years after the NFL granted equal locker room access to female sports reporters, the issue is back on the table because of a snafu in New York when a comely journalist endured cat calls from naked NFLers.

    Wednesday, Bearslinebacker Lance Briggs said to Grizzly Detail he thought women should be barred from the locker room as a rule. 

    Thursday he was defending his opinion.

    "I don't regret what I said," Briggs said at a press conference at Halas Hall. "My statement is that the men's locker room is for men and the women's locker room is for women. I mean no disrespect towards Peggy because we’ve never had a problem in our locker room.

    Still no word from Lovie Smith, Jerry Angelo or the Bears Organization.
