The 55 million is not that outargues. The idiot make the video so he could sell it for big bucks. The amount has to be big enough that no one will ever think of doing this again. If she was only awarded a million dollars someone else might be willing to risk it. She also stopped working at ESPN after the video came out.
Here is all the bullshit she has had to put up with.
Hulk Hogan is actually famous though And he was probably damaged a lot more than she ever was from the tape
Also Gawker was promoting and making money off the tape, it wasn't just randomly posted to porn sites here and there. They were even told to take it down, but didn't, and even bragged about leaving it up, further promoting it.
She lost her job. Hulk is a wrestler he probably benefited more than anything.
Also anyone that watches football would know Who she is.
He lost his job too actually, from what was said on the tape
I watch football at least 3x a week and am only vaguely familiar with her name. Sideline reporters are not relevant. Hulk Hogan is literally the biggest wrestling star in history, and one of the most recognizable celebrities who has ever existed in North America.

Gawker Media is set to formally declare bankruptcy, and owner Nick Denton plans to put the company up for auction, according to numerous media outlets.
"[Gawker Media] is also now formally entertaining offers to buy the company and says it has a firm bid from publisher Ziff Davis to buy the entire operation for less than $100 million," Recode reported.
Weeks ago, it came out that Peter Thiel, a billionaire investor, was bankrolling the Hulk Hogan defamation lawsuit and seemingly sought revenge over being "outed" as "totally gay" a decade ago by Gawker's now-defunct Valleywag site.
As Ars reported in April 2016, Gawker has already begun the process of appealing the $140 million verdict a jury ordered it to pay in March 2016 for publishing a sex tape of Terry Bollea, better known as former pro-wrestler Hulk Hogan.
Last year, some of the company's financial details were disclosed as it sought outside investment before the then-upcoming trial. The company generated a profit of $6.5 million on $44.3 million in revenue in 2014. Last year, it saw $48.7 million in revenue, according to information made public at trial.
A filing of Chapter 11 bankruptcy would have the immediate effect of shielding the company from its creditors, including Hogan and his attorneys. A search of federal bankruptcy records shows that the company has not yet filed.
Gawker was sued again in May 2016 by the same lawyer who brought the Hogan case on behalf of a man who claims to have invented e-mail. In that suit, plaintiff Shiva Ayyadurai demands $35 million from Gawker (Gizmodo's parent company) and a public retraction of Gizmodo’s 2012 articles, which reported: "Corruption, Lies, and Death Threats: The Crazy Story of the Man Who Pretended to Invent Email" and "The Inventor of Email Did Not Invent e-mail?"
Neither Denton, nor Ziff Davis' parent company j2 Global, immediately responded to Ars' request for comment.
Ryan Mac, a Forbes reporter, posted what appears to be a press release from Gawker saying that the bankruptcy process has begun.
