NFL Network Suspends Analysts Due to Sexual Harassment Probe
A former wardrobe stylist at the network filed a complaint alleging sexual harassment.
Three NFL Network analysts have been suspended. Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist at the network, filed a complaint against NFL Enterprises alleging sexual harassment by several men during the time she was employed with the company. The suit names Eric Weinberger, a former executive producer at NFL Network and current president of Bill Simmons’s media group. The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, also names Marshall Faulk and Heath Evans, who are both retired football players and commentators on the network.
According to the suit, Weinberger pressed his crotch against Cantor’s shoulder and asked her to touch it, sent nude photos and sexually explicit texts, and told her she was “put on Earth to pleasure me.” Faulk asked her “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life, and groped her butt and breasts. Ike Taylor and Donovan McNabb are also named. Cantor says she informed Marc Watts, who coordinates talent for the NFL, but he said it’s “part of the job when you look the way you do.”
