Women Sexually Harassed While Working For Washington

Share

Cuban was responding to Thursday's report in The Washington Post in which 15 women made allegations of sexual harassment and a toxic workplace culture from 2006 to 2019.

In the NFL's statement, the league said it would meet with the team's attorneys "and take any action based on the findings", implying that it could levy punishment on the team or its leadership.

Reporters like Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic and Nora Princiotti, now of The Ringer; had also experienced harassment from the Washington NFL team's employees.

Cuban pledged $10 million to help women's organizations that combat domestic violence and support the leadership and development of women.

These matters as reported are serious, disturbing and contrary to the NFL's values.

In a statement from owner Dan Snyder, the team revealed that Beth Wilkinson of Wilkinson Walsh + Eskovitz would handle the internal investigation. Snyder - who was franchise owner at the time of the reported allegations - also affirmed a "commitment to setting a new culture and standard for our team".

California, Florida, Texas, New York and IL had the largest numbers of loans and the most in dollar amount approved, data show. The disclosure by the Small Business Administration provides only a range for the loan sizes instead of precise dollar amounts.

Three people who the paper cited as accused of misconduct departed the team within the past week; longtime radio play-by-play announcer and senior vice president Larry Michael, former director of pro personnel Alex Santos and former assistant director of pro personnel Richard Mann II.

The report also says that Dennis Green, former president of business operations, asked female sales staff to wear low-cut blouses and tight skirts when meeting with wealthy suite holders.

The Washington Redskins have hired a prominent lawyer to review the "organization's protocols" in light of the speculation surrounding the team's culture, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Snyder was not accused of harassment in the Washington Post's article, though he oversaw a "hostile" work environment within the team. Other changes for the franchise include Allen's firing and the hiring of head coach Ron Rivera on New Year's Day.

The allegations come on the heels of the team's announcement Monday that it would be retiring its nickname and logo after completing a thorough review that began on July 3.
