According to Bloomberg News:

The allegations against the retired NFL players and Eric Weinberger, who’s now president of The Ringer, are part of a lawsuit against NFL Enterprises in Los Angeles Superior Court. The amended complaint filed Monday detailed the specific acts of harassment by several individuals.

Cantor, a wardrobe stylist at the NFL Network, said Weinberger sent “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” and told her she was “put on earth to pleasure me.” He also pressed his crotch against Cantor’s shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint.

She said she was also sexually harassed by on-air talent. Faulk, who’s an NFL Network analyst, would ask Cantor “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life and fondled her breasts and groped her behind, according to the complaint.

Ike Taylor, also an analyst, sent Cantor “sexually inappropriate” pictures of himself and a video of him masturbating in the shower, according to the filing. Donovan McNabb, a former analyst, also texted her explicit comments, according to the compliant.

Cantor said she complained about the sexual advances from former NFL players the league’s talent coordinator, Marc Watts, but he did nothing and said, “It’s part of the job when you look the way you do,” according to the court complaint.

She said she also complained about other working conditions at the network, including a failure to reimburse her for expenses and a lack of compensation for the hours she worked. She was terminated by her supervisor at the NFL in October 2016, when she was 51, and replaced by a 30-year-old, according to the complaint.

Mike McGovern If there is proof, then yeah, they deserve what they get. However this "new norm" of just an accusation being seen as proof is very dangerous

Joshua Stacy One dude put his crotch on her shoulder and asked her touch it. Taylor reportedly sent her a vid of him jacking off in the shower. She was told to expect that kind of treatment looking the way she does and working in that business.

Richard Kyle Jacobson Yeahhhh….I’m not buying it. Disgruntled former (fired) employee that was replaced by a younger female. Sounds like a real good time to make some sexual harassment claims against a good handful of wealthy big name individuals and a large broadcasting company.

David Ryan Kniseley I guess my beef with this is shes 51……. I have to imagine that these players who are younger than her could certainly harass younger women. I'm not saying it didn't happen but I'm sure it will all come out in court.

"She said she also complained about other working conditions at the network, including a failure to reimburse her for expenses and a lack of compensation for the hours she worked. She was terminated by her supervisor at the NFL in October 2016, when she was 51, and replaced by a 30-year-old, according to the complaint."

This statement right here provides enough motive to launch allegations of sexual assault. Again in no way am I suggesting that it didn't happen. However where are any cooperating witnesses? She certainly wasn't the only female working there, where are their complaints?

Michael Sanders This story smells fishy, it’s very unlikely that these 3 retired players would all go after the same 50 year old lady. Based on the fact that she was fired last year and her other complaints about pay, I think she’s just after revenge and a payday.

Matthew Bayer Hey. Maybe they sexually harassed someone. Maybe it's not a Witch Hunt, you know, when people were literally burned for being weird. Big difference between a company taking sexual harassment seriously and killing an innocent person in fire
