Ex-Washington cheerleader says NFL is 'using us and our anonymity to shield' the league by not issuing report

RAIDERS’ MARK DAVIS CALLS FOR NFL TO RELEASE REPORT ON WFT INVESTIGATION, TAKES DIG OVER GRUDEN SCANDAL

I think it’s completely false,” she told Fox News in a phone interview on Thursday. “Using us and our anonymity to shield the NFL is just a very cowardly thing to do.

Lisa Banks and Debra Katz, two attorneys representing more than 40 former WFT employees, issued a statement directed at Goodell on Wednesday echoing that sentiment.

“昨日, during your press conference at the NFL owners’ 会議, you made a number of misstatements about the NFL’s actions, or inaction, related to the Washington Football Team investigation and those who participated in that investigation, including our clients. We write, もう一度, to make our clientsposition as clear as possible and to ask you to refrain from suggesting the NFL has not created or produced an investigatory request at their request.

It is simply not true, as you suggest, that because some of our clients wanted anonymity that they, したがって、, did not want a report produced or made public,” 手紙は続きました.

Coburn is among those former employees who have been pushing the league to issue a written report of its findings following a 10-month investigation.

There are ways to release reports with names redacted, and if there’s any delicate matters they can go through and withhold some of that information. It’s been done, it’s done all the time, and it’s unfortunate that they are using that,” Coburn told Fox News.

I know Beth Wilkinson is a very esteemed lawyer,” Coburn said of the attorney hired to conduct the investigation. “She’s renowned and she’s very respected in this area, and I’m sure that she had a working document and that she is capable of producing such [A] report that would be sensitive to everybody that participated.

Coburn also spoke to Goodell’s comments that Washington owner Dan Snyder and the organization as a whole were held accountable, referencing the “前例のない” $ 10 million fine the team was forced to pay.

That is not a fine and that is not a punishment that fits the behavior and the years of toxic work culture and serial sexual harassment and even assault in some cases,” Coburn said. “I don’t think that he’s been held accountable.

水曜日に, ラスベガスレイダース owner Mark Davis became the first NFL owner to come forward saying he believed the league should publish a written report, “especially with some of the things that were, 私は推測する, charged.

It was encouraging that Mark Davis came forward. I appreciate his support,” Coburn said. “I also think he has a personal interest in this with losing his head coach the way he did.

Jon Gruden resigned as head coach of the Raiders earlier this month after leaked emails that were reviewed as part of the NFL’s investigation revealed racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments Gruden made to former Washington executive Bruce Allen between 2010-2018.

Mark Davis is dealing with a lot of collateral damage in this whole process,” Coburn suggested.

Tanya Snyder, who was named co-CEO after Dan Snyder announced he would be stepping down from day-to-day operations, attended the meeting and, according to a report from スポーツイラストレイテッド, gave a prepared statement that failed to address the victims. One person in the room described the statement as “ウィリアム王子とケイトミドルトンは、緊張したカリブ海ツアーに続いて「後悔に圧倒されました」” and two owners reportedly agreed with that characterization.

I will say Tonya’s comments, 再び, are very tone-deaf, and it really makes us feel invisible as it has since she went on with Adam Schefter,” Coburn said of Snyder’s appearance on an ESPN podcast last month.
