NFL Network, ESPN Suspend Faulk, McNabb And 3 Other Stars After Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

Ever since sexual assault allegations first surfaced against Harvey Weinstein several weeks ago, barely a day has gone by that some high-profile media personality or politician didn't get exposed for their truly sickening sexual deviancy. 

Now, it seems as if the latest allegations have struck the sports world with the NFL Network and ESPN having suspended five former football players, including Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, due to allegations in a court filing accusing them of repeated sexual harassment. Other ex-players named in the suit include Ike Taylor and Heath Evans, who along with Faulk were suspended by the NFL Network, as well as Eric Davis, who along with McNabb were suspended from ESPN.

Both the NFL Network and ESPN say they are investigating the allegations and that the NFL stars in question have been suspended with pay.

According to CNN, the suit was filed in California superior court in Los Angeles by Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist at the NFL Network, and listed the following complaints:

Faulk fondled Cantor's breasts, invited her to his hotel room and pulled out his genitals in front of her and asked, "when are you going to get on this already?" He also is alleged to have pinned her to the wall and demanded oral sex while he pulled down his pants.

 

Ike Taylor allegedly sent Cantor inappropriate pictures of himself including a nude video of him masturbating in the shower.

 

Heath Evans allegedly sent Cantor nude pictures of himself on at least two separate occasions, told her "you're making me horny," and that he "needed to get in you deep and hard."

 

Sapp allegedly gave Cantor sex toys as a Christmas gift three years in a row, and showed her nude photos of women he said he had slept with. She said when the network required her to work in the men's bathroom preparing clothes, Sapp also allegedly came in and urinated in front of her.

 

Eric Davis is accused of sliding his hand between Cantor's legs, grabbing her, rubbing up against her and making lewd comments to her. She alleges when she once slapped his hand away he aggressively told her never to push his hand away again.

 

Donovan McNabb is accused of sending inappropriate text messages.

Adding insult to injury, Cantor's lawsuit also alleges that her complaints were dismissed by the NFL Network's talent coordinator as she was told "It's part of the job when you look the way you do."

Meanwhile, one non-athlete, former executive producer Eric Weinberger, was also named in Cantor's suit and has since been suspended by his new employer The Ringer.

Weinberger is alleged to have also sent Cantor nude photos of himself and pressed his crotch against her shoulder, asking her to touch him He is also alleged to have touched her crotch, groped her breasts and to have reached down her pants to "check if she was wearing underwear."
Weinberger has been suspended.

 

"These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today. We are placing Eric on leave indefinitely until we have a better understanding of what transpired during his time at the NFL, and we will conduct our own internal investigation," the site said in a statement.

Of course, as we noted yesterday, CNN and WaPo are said to be working on 20-40 sexual misconduct stories at the moment...so the only question now is who will be exposed tomorrow?

Inappropriate text messages?! Well off with his head of course.  WTF.  This is getting out of hand.  This is of course a setup for the January Bimbo Cannons.  But it also only works on those who experience shame.  Another thing to try to further depress birth rates of a certain race that has the ability to feel shame and is already not reproducing suficiently.

The Muslims know how to prevent this predictable behavior of men, women wear burkas and stay out of men's lockerrooms. Problem solved. Not that long ago, if a woman wore tight clothes and showed some cleveage and got herself raped, it was her fault. The way things are going today, all men will soon be castrated and women will rule the world. 2 generations ago, if women wore the bathing suits that they are wearing today, they would have been arrested for lude behavior. Does the phrase "dick teaser" ring a bell? If you don't want to be raped, dress and behave accordingly. My wife totally disagrees with me, but she is just a dumb bitch. Walk into a lion's cage wearing a cape of sewn together raw steaks and the lion attacks you, do you beat the lion to death because he should have known better? We are all animals and subject to animal instincts, just because women are able to suppress their animal instincts more than men, does not give them the right to tease men to the point of submission to instincts, and then accuse them of serious crimes.

An article on heavy.com stated that one of the pampered penis-brained pigskin packers told Cantor:  "You have such a luscious butt!"Now you know.Luscious butts rule.A photo of that butt needs to be prominently displayed before anyone renders any more premature misjudgements.  Remember:  this is FIVE famous football stars wanting a piece of that bubble.  Hence there just might be something luscious wagging to and fro there.Take one luscious butt and add some brightly colored yoga pants = instant harrassment suit.

The Ds are going all-out to tee up a Trump impeachment based on the bimbo cannon they're about to fire at him.Name ANYBODY taken down on their side who hasn't been largely expendable (for example, in Congress, was Franken or Conyers' seat in danger of being lost to the Rs if they booted them out?).  Even further down the food chain... who really cares about some ex-football players on TV?  Expendable pawns all.Not that they'll secure a conviction in the Senate, but with the Russia-gate thing imploding they needed a new narrative to justify impeachment in the house, should they win it back in 2018.  This is what it will be.

Women aren't true athletes. Everyone needs to deal with the fact that the strongest female arm wrestler was beaten by some average guy in a pub contest that never lifted weights or trained.You women want to be some type of academic or modern day super hero idiot thinking that you have the strength and stamina to take on some of the most incredibly strong men I have personally ever seen?Get over it ladies, if you can beat me at anything while I'm piss drunk and borderline uncooncious, you can claim victory over me. Until then, fuck off. Your feminism and the like does nothing to save my ass in war zones. You stupid idiots get guys like me killed every day while you post your socialist crap on Fraudbook and other data mining. I wish you luck, and an early natural death, since you aren't able to take care of yourself without government intervention to save your sorry asses. The rest of us just want you to die from natural causes or stupidity. Probably die from the stupid part.
