1. What does talking about her abilities as a player have to do with rape? Why is it insensitive? One has nothing to do with the other.
exactly. In a news conference about the allegations, why did he bring up her performance. as you say... "One has nothing to do with the other. "
I think the point you reference in #2 is off a bit, the allegations do not stop at foul language, the way your comment does. I don't think she alleges that she was raped with foul language.
I cannot answer your #3. I'm not a woman.

2 and 3 are separate. One of the complaints was the way she was treated aside from the rape accusation. I don't personally think women should play men's sports with men. Like football. Don't expect for the boys to lower the standards or hold hands and play nice so the girls can play too and feel all warm and fuzzy about themselves.

(Personally, I think they should bring back flogging and burning at the stake. /so)

Because a reporter ASKED him about her performance.
His answer was too blunt for the situation and was indeed not tactful or wise.
