NFL fans called out ESPN host Sam Ponder this week over what was deemed to be a ‘scandalous’ outfit.
This weekend, the reactions swung in the other direction.
For whatever reason, Ponder’s outfit choice on Sunday elicited a ton of backlash.

That said, not everyone agreed with the dissenters. Some are still huge fans of Ponder.
Sam Ponder’s outfit is quite scandalous this morning and I’m not objecting.

This was a busy sports weekend. Between Mallory Edens’ provocative outfit to a game, Kay Adams’ video in nothing but a towel and Erin Andrews confessing to making up reports, it has been one thing after another.
But somehow Ponder swooped in and stole the show. Again.

In many ways, she has quietly become one of the most well-known and influential women in all of sports media over the past few years.
There is a reason why her moves are endlessly scrutinized the way they clearly are.
Will Ponder’s outfit to next week’s ESPN show finally appease her many NFL fashion haters? Time will tell.
