ESPN is admitting to the world that their product they sell is so pathetic, they have been forced to resort to using naked athletes to market a once family oriented product... Sports.. And the athletes willing to participate in this, to me, are maybe one notch above those individuals you find in pornography.. Jesus, your loser corporation is no better than the politicians that sacrifice decent american values and are committed to destroying the moral fabric that once made america the exceptional country that it was, and all for the almighty dollar.. The founder of ESPN has been hailed as some kind of leader we all can be proud of because of how how he worked hard, displaying dignity, to become successful, But now that ship seems to have sailed, and the ship of immorality has now docked at the front door of the ESPN headquarters.. Good job ESPN.. i can hardly wait to see what you losers do next.. i suspect you are waiting for all the upccoming talented athletes to turn 18...

This why women will always be second class citizens because they are the ones that make themselves nothing more than sex objects open for ridicule. Imagine top male athletes posing like this they would be laughed out of sports. These are women I would not have my daughter looked up to as someone to be admired they are a very poor example to young girls and should be ashamed of themselves. Ladies you only have yourselves to blame for your place in society. When you are brainless you use your body because in reality you have nothing to say.

Bah. Like all the "news" today it's temporarily titillating and immediately forgettable. Getting naked for the camera has nothing to do with dreams, success or personal growth. It's just easy money for a select few.

Frankly, I like looking at a pretty face and body, like Hilary Knight and Megan Rapinoe, plus other women. The men? I could care less.

This is tasteful photography. No **** and no dicks. Nothing 'immoral' about this but, in general, I agree with your comment about morality, but don't generalize. We're not quite like the falling Roman Empire - YET!

Why are so many people so enraged by a little nudity? All the pictures seemed well done, artistic. There is nothing wrong with nudity or the human body. Get out of the Victorian age people.!

Hardly nude, but Megan Rapinoe has a cute little butt. These are tasteful nudes. Prince must have been pulling in his tummy with all his might. I wish he still swung a bat with such earnest. His best years (Milwaukee Brewers) are over.
