Release of 13-year-old court document dusts off Peyton Manning incident at Tennessee

In the early days of PFT, an article emerged regarding a defamation lawsuit filed against Peyton and Archie Manning. The litigation, which arose from an allegation that the Mannings defamed a former University of Tennessee trainer in a book they had written (Peyton said that the trainer had  a “vulgar mouth”), sparked the publication of an accusation that Manning had placed his “naked butt and rectum” on the face of the trainer while she was examining him in 1996.

The longest-standing members of PFT Planet know that, from time to time over the years, we’ve used the phrase “naked butt and rectum” in reference to the story, which never caught fire in the pre-social media days of the Internet — even though the USA Today item was titled “Manning’s image could take hit in suit.” That article, which didn’t characterize the incident as a sexual assault, apparently flowed from a 74-page document filed in the defamation lawsuit. USA Today didn’t publish the full document, and it released no details beyond the reference to Manning allegedly placing “his ‘naked butt and rectum’ on [the trainer’s] face.”

Now that Peyton Manning has won his second Super Bowl and potentially will be walking off into the sunset, the same 74-page document has been sent to the New York Daily News.

The ensuing #longread from Shaun King of the Daily News is at times hard to follow, as it attempts to summarize most of the 74 pages in chronological order. Also, King’s article displays a clear anti-Peyton bias, and more than a little melodrama. This #notaslongread item comes from the 74-page document itself, which has been published in full by the Daily News.

Before going any farther, it’s important to understand what the 74-page document is, and what it isn’t. The 74-page document is a piece of advocacy. The 74-page document is something that was written by the lawyers representing Jamie Ann Naughright in her defamation case against the Mannings. The 74-page document is, necessarily, one-sided.

The 74-page document is not objective. The 74-page document is not supposed to be objective. The 74-page document is not a court order or any other decision made by a neutral party. And, ultimately, the 74-page document is incomplete without comparing it to the corresponding “Facts of the Case” document submitted by the defendants in the case.

There’s another very important, and intriguing, way in which the 74-page document is incomplete. While it contains testimony and allegations about the “naked butt and rectum” escapade, Naughright’s lawyers redacted when filing the 74-page document large chunks of information regarding an earlier alleged incident from 1994. At page 10 of the 74-page document, the lawyers for Naughright explain that, because Peyton Manning’s lawyers had asked that “certain exhibits and deposition testimony relating to this 1994 incident be designated as part of the ‘confidential record’ and not publicly be revealed,” the information absent from the public document was filed “under seal,” meaning that only the presiding judge and the judge’s staff could see it.

This means that the information about the 1994 incident was in some way more sensitive than the 1996 “naked butt and rectum” incident, which was detailed in the 74-page document, without redaction. Common sense suggests that this means the other incident possibly was more graphic and/or inflammatory and/or offensive and/or problematic for Peyton than the “naked butt and rectum” incident from two years later.

At page 14 of the 74-page document, Naughright’s lawyers tell the story of the 1996 incident, with excerpts from Naughright’s deposition regarding what allegedly occurred while she was examining Peyton Manning’s lower leg for a stress fracture.

“It was the gluteus maximus, the rectum, the testicles, and the area in between the testicles,” Naughright said. “And all that was on my face when I pushed him up and off.”

The 74-page document then alleges that Manning worked with another Tennessee trainer, Mike Rollo, to “hatch a story” that Manning was “mooning” another UT athlete. That was the version, according to Naughright’s lawyers, that Peyton Manning and Rollo provided to investigators and the media, and it was the version that appeared in the Mannings’ book.

In the 74-page document, Naughright’s lawyers attempted to expose that the “mooning” explanation was fabricated, describing the incident instead as a “sexual assault,” with Peyton Manning “committing a disgusting act and showing his contempt for someone he did not like.” The effort to debunk the “mooning” contention includes an affidavit from the alleged recipient of the “mooning,” Malcolm Saxon, along with a December 2002 letter from Saxon to Peyton Manning in which Saxon tells Peyton “you messed up” and urging him to “take some personal responsibility” for the situation.

“Coming clean is the right thing to do!!” Saxon writes to Peyton Manning. “You might as well maintain some dignity and admit to what happened.”

The 74-page document also alleges that Peyton Manning later taunted Naughright by reenacting the incident two other times.

“Mr. Manning looked at me. The athlete was behind me. He pulled down his pants and sat on the athlete’s face,” Naughright testified as to the first incident of reenacting/taunting.

“Mr. Manning saw me,” she testified as to the second incident of reenacting/taunting, “walked over to the gentleman, pulled his pants down, and sat in the gentleman’s face while looking at me, pulled his pants back up, looked at me, and headed off to the locker room.”

The 74-page document contains other allegations aimed at showing that Peyton Manning had disdain and dislike for Naughright. The 1996 incident apparently was used against Peyton Manning in the Heisman Trophy campaign, which allegedly left him bitter. (Peyton admitted under oath that he said to Archie, “I’m not going to win the f–king trophy, read the papers, it’s going to [Charles] Woodson.”)

Also, Archie Manning allegedly made comments to the ghost writer of the Mannings’ book regarding Naughright, including an alleged statement from Archie Manning to the ghost writer that Naughright, who is white, “had been out with a lot of black guys.”

Again, the entirety of the 74-page document published by the New York Daily News was prepared by the lawyers for Naughright in connection with an effort to win her lawsuit against Peyton and Archie Manning. It’s not apparent from Shaun King’s article that he sought comment or a response from Peyton or Archie Manning. (PFT has reached out to Peyton’s agent, Tom Condon, for comment.)

It’s unclear how much traction a 13-year-old court filing regarding a 20-year-old incident will achieve, but I’ve already been alerted to the item published little more than four hours ago by at least four different people, and the article seems to be catching fire on Twitter. So there’s a chance that in this first weekend without NFL football since Labor Day, NFL fans will notice this one, even if few take the time to read all 74 pages of the document.

    So much for the carefully crafted “Aw shucks” image. Seems like the Mannings have been managing this phony image for decades. It also makes the thought of the Mannings sending their boys over to “visit” the HGH source (who the next day, recanted his hours of implicating discussions) all the more plausible. And the national media (including ESPN and Manning rump swab Nantz et al) won’t even mention it yet treat Tom Brady as a criminal. Hopefully, a few real journalists will continue to explore these allegations.

    You have to wonder why the NYT is trying to bring up 20 year old accusations? What is their agenda and what are they hoping to accomplish by bringing it back up? The only conclusion a reasonable person could come up with is it is straight up character assignation. It certainly isn’t relevant or news worthy.

    The girl got her 300, 000 dollars. Media and sports fans need to get over the need to vilify an athlete over an incident especially one 20 years ago.

    Somehow people feel better about themselves when they can say “Look at this guy, what a loser”.

    I would think that if true, he would have done other things that we would have heard about to show that he’s a complete slime-ball. I’m not a fan of his; however, I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

  20. drohanimal says: Feb 13, 2016 11:38 AM

    Shaun King is a race baiting fraud who will push any story to try and stay relevant after he was exposed for lying about being black. If this story were true, it would hold more weight coming from anybody but him.

    The author has the intelligence of a pea. He cites to the “facts of the case” section of the filing as if it was written by the judge rather than the lawyers of a woman suing for millions of dollars. The only time he does cite a judge’s opinion, he insinuates that the judge agreed with the facts — but that too shows his ignorance. When a judge decides a motion to dismiss, the judge is required to accept all of the plaintiff’s allegations as true. The motion to dismiss is granted only if, after accepting all of the plaintiff’s allegations, the plaintiff’s claim does not entitle her to relief.

    Tough to tell how “bad” this really is. Just saying that he’s a kid doesn’t really excuse it, but as Florio pointed out, this is anything but objective. To me it seems like another smear….

    I really don’t see why the NFL and media are out to tarnish the reputations of two of the best QBs it will ever see play.

    I kept the accurate part of your statement. Also, in first grade , you begin to learn the concept of context. But, since all you care about is a specific single elimination game, then we should include their head to head single elimination games. I believe that is 3 – 2? I would take more stock in that one, as they are facing each other, but that’s just one variable…I know more than one thing.

  41. pats777 says: Feb 13, 2016 11:56 AM

    No matter what the truth or myth of the actual incident, there is little doubt that the Manning family destroyed the reputation and career of a respected doctor. That’s not cool.

    Yes she was paid off. Peyton actually had to settle with the trainer twice in order to keep these incidents as quiet as possible in the media. Once shortly after the incident occurred at Tennessee, and again after he trashed the Trainer in the book.

    None of this is news, many in the media just choose to treat Peyton Manning and others who do not deserve kid gloves (hint: Ray Lewis) with kid gloves.

    What’s the story with HGH gate?
    That’s the real crime, cause if used then he cheated, sinple as that.
    Anyone with 1 eye could tell he wasn’t using this year. But 2 or 3 years ago? A blind man could see that he was.

  51. tim2200 says: Feb 13, 2016 12:09 PM

    Peyton Manning is a prime example of how the media cultivates certain images with certain athletes.

    This is the real PM. He’s an “entitled” jock and has been his whole life.

    The ugly incident as Tennessee mirrors the same type of Manning machine reaction that we’ve seen with the HGH story.
    Smear jobs, intimidation, et al

    Stories out there involving ugly behavior in Indy also that the media won’t touch.

    In a league chock full of bad actors perhaps the Manning’s are a perfect First Family of the NFL.

    By the way, how many of those 4 SB’s were won without confirmed cheating?? 3 spygates and 1 deflate gates…

    Now is it any wonder why Brady did not turn over his phone after he was told it was not needed in the NFL investigation.

  64. pftjunkie says: Feb 13, 2016 12:33 PM

    So those of us who didn’t do something stupid in college should throw the first stone at Manning…

    Why drag up something that there is no proof of over a decade later? Manning is a very upstanding individual in his adult life, and is very generous to those in need, ie Peytom Manning Children’s Hospital.

    And lastly, to the individual who says that Manning destroyed a doctor’s career, well I can say that I had looked into this doctor for a family member, and had serious doubts about their treatment methods after reading numerous articles about them several years ago, so I don’t think Manning was the first to cast doubt upon this doctor….

  65. captatl says: Feb 13, 2016 12:34 PM

    Shaun King is nothing but a race baiting Al Sharpton wanna be. He has the intelligence level of said “rectum” in this story. Had this been a black athlete, he would be defending that athlete as being taken advantage of by the man.

  67. patriotsticketssince1978 says: Feb 13, 2016 12:39 PM

    Meh, kids do silly stuff. The fact that he sexually assaulted the woman attempting to examine his potential stress fracture could certainly be chocked up to youthful foolishness.

    It’s what happened after the incident that is newsworthy. Taunting her while the cover up was being fabricated, subsequent comments about her made on ESPN, asking Saxon to lie for him and causing her to lose employment because of lies printed in a book are all disgraceful and really should be brought to light.

  68. nfceastisbeast says: Feb 13, 2016 12:39 PM

    But I thought Peyton was all about the team, not individual accomplishments. “Dad!, I’m not getting the f’n trophy! Read the papers, Woodson is going to get it.” Yeah, just like I always thought. It was always about him.
    Just like all off the short TD’s he threw when he could have chosen to hand off to his RB. But he wanted those 55 TD’s badly.

  69. nytruth says: Feb 13, 2016 12:39 PM

    Talk about a ridiculous hit peace. Not surprised King doesn’t even mention this same woman’s lawsuit against NY designer Donna Karan. This entire story is an unquestioning regurgitation of one side’s filing in a lawsuit. No context. No effort to get the other side. There’s a reason USA Today had this story years ago and did almost nothing with it; they’re real journalists. I was reading some of King’s writings about white privilege on the Daily News website. Looks like he wants to take down a white sports icon regardless of the facts.

    Why drag up something that there is no proof of over a decade later?…

    Peyton and Archie had to settle with the Trainer twice, probably to keep Peyton out of jail. There was a witness (look it up), hence there was proof.

    But do not worry Manning apologists, the 4-letter network and most of the media has been giving Peyton a free pass to do anything good or bad without an iota of criticism for the last 20 years. That will not change.

The only conclusion a reasonable person could come up with is it is straight up character assignation. It certainly isn’t relevant or news worthy.

    “On the morning after Super Bowl 50, I posted a picture on my Facebook page of Cam Newton smiling and embracing Peyton Manning after the game and simply asked why that warm photo wasn’t being talked about instead of Cam being frustrated at the post-game press conference. It has since been shared more than 234,000 times and seen by more than 20 million people. It now has nearly 6,000 comments, but on that morning, just one leaped out at me, which mentioned something to the effect of “Peyton sexually assaulted a girl in college.”

    That’s what made him look in to it.

    Manning is a cheater. He also cheated on his wife with some local meteorologist in Indianapolis named Angela Buchman.

    He’s a pig and a friggin’ dork deluxe. So is his dorky toolbag brother.

    He would never get laid unless he knew how to throw a football, which he doesn’t even do that very well. lmao

    The Mannings have been entitled since the beginning. They’re a very poor symbol of what our society has become.

    A disgrace.

  84. straightcashhomes says: Feb 13, 2016 12:51 PM

    University of Tennessee wrote the woman a $300,000 check – maybe that’s chump change to you… Mannings wrote her a check to settle defamation lawsuit with confidentiality clause inserted which they violated in 2005.. anything we can reasonably infer from these actions?

    Shaun King seems like he has an axe to grind.

    Florio, you’re right to point out that this document is a piece of advocacy rather than factual findings made by a judge. Doesn’t make the allegations untrue, but you have to take them with a grain of salt.

    The story would have benefited from more careful editing and at least a once-over by someone with more than a passing familiarity with the legal system. That would require the NY Daily News (!) to care more about the integrity of the reporting than generating clicks.

  90. BobbyHanks63 says: Feb 13, 2016 12:57 PM

    The victim of Manning’s real classy act was against a highly regarded professional psychologist working for the same university that Peyton was playing football for. She was examining Peyton for a stress fraction when this ass wipe act occurred, so no way you can find fault with her unless you don’t mind Manny putting his ass and testicles on your face? If you read the main parts of this story and the court documented testimony, you will understand that it was Manning who broke the confidentiality clause in their agreement years earlier and then put more reputation smearing lies in his book after she built up the same sterling reputation after going to work with Florida, this according to many who have worked with this women. That sucks anyway you want to look it and this has more than a 50% chance of blowing up on Manning’s face this time… as more study and read the court papers which were taken under oath, keep in mind. Add the HGH drama and if Manning did this the gloves will be off very soon.

    It looks to me that all of the sudden, the ambulance chaser with a blog somehow has Manning in his sights. A 13 year old document from an incident almost 20 years ago with reference to another redacted incident more than 20 years ago complete with juicy conclusions. What’s next? You going to publish his report card from when he was a junior in high school? Go ahead Florio and all, cast the first stone if it makes you feel any better. Despite your efforts this week to rebuild the disaster of Cam Newton, I still feel he’s an immature imbecile.

Athletic heroes are human and it seems the media loves to find their flaws and expose them. Haters feel some sort of satisfaction I guess and less jealously.
    Cam Newton just went through a tough media ordeal. Peyton hasn’t always had it easy. He’s experienced many tough losses and is now facing crumbling skills, injuries, and a tough retirement,

    King may not be a great writer, but the court docs dont lie. There was a 3rd party witness and THREE settlements, one paid by Tennessee, one paid by Peyton for defamation (which are hard cases to win which shows the trainer had evidence against him) and another one paid by Peyton for violating a court order against speaking publicly on the incident.

    So those of us who didn’t do something stupid in college should throw the first stone at Manning…

    Dude, if you or anybody else pressed your naked a$$ onto some girl’s face, you should be prosecuted. That’s not a prank, that’s a frigging assault, and the fact that it “happened back in college” when you were younger means absolutely nothing. You don’t get a free pass to wipe your a$$ on some girl’s face just because you’re in college. What the h*ll is wrong with you?

    A lot of people seem caught up with wondering what the motivation is for the NYDN putting this out there. I could care less. They didn’t create this story, and I’m personally glad to hear about it because I never heard about it back then. If it’s true, it blows my mind. If it’s true, I want to know.

  118. plum54 says: Feb 13, 2016 1:30 PM

    =====================================
    It’s not only biased it’s false. There is a whole lot more to this because the story she gave was both laughable, and unbelievable.
    The more believable story was an attempt to extort money from a family that has quite a bit of it even before Peyton’s ascension.

    If a man tried to do that to a girl in the real world he would probably be castrated. That’s something that just doesn’t happen to an unwilling person because the risk of damage is much greater than the act is funny.

    Peyton is done, he did choke (did you see that INT he threw) and the only reason they didn’t lose is because their defense was the best in the league and completely dominated the Panthers. Manning had a negative affect on his team this year and to say the Super Bowl was some sort of vindication for him is completely and entirely false. He was statistically the worst QB in football this season, Tom Brady threw more TDs in Denver than Manning did this year.

    I think there are people out there, specifically in the media with just bad intentions. Because, Brady has a checkered history of scandels that, they somehow have to create drama for Peyton to even the score. I think it burns these people for some reason, they can’t let this dude retire in peace. They used to search for reasons to say he’s not the greatest quarterback of all time by pointing out just 1 category (superbowls), but now he’s got 2, and along with every passing record he owns I’m not sure what someone has to do for a clincher to be the best…To me, he clearly is…Now that he’s got another one, they need to go out and even the score with these crap stories…So they can say Brady wasn’t only qb to have scandels during this era…

  138. Njdjp says: Feb 13, 2016 2:05 PM

    What is amazing to me is that the reaction here is the same as the HGH story – attack the credibility of the journalistic source. “Al Jezeera America (a legitimate and decorated journalism outlet) is anti-American!!” “Shaun King is a racially motivated hack!!”

    Fine, then read and review the source documents yourself. The only eye witness to the incident has not only backed the trainer from the beginning (sworn under oath), he wrote a letter years later (attached as an Exhibit and reproduced in full in the filing), begging Peyton to come clean and take responsibility.

    You don’t need to read all 74 pages, but make a minimal effort to know the facts before you decide Peyton did nothing wrong.

    Manning surely did smash his bum and testicles into a woman’s face.

    And he did try to pass it off as a “mooning”. And the athlete he supposedly mooned did call him out and take the trainers side of the issue.

    And he was only sued by the trainer when he brought it up in a 2002 book calling her a foul mouth and again lying by saying he was mooning someone.

    And yes this IS something that would be a scandal these days.

    Of COURSE Manning’s image is expertly crafted.

    I’d like to assume Manning has never done anything like this again. He probably hasn’t. But what he did was pretty awful.

    Anyone who thinks Manning didn’t take HGH is naive.

    Cam Newton stole a laptop though and Tom Brady let the air out of some footballs.

We still have an opportunity to win a “clean” title before the window is closed on Brady. Hopefully that will shut up the haters who say all our championships have asterisks.

  151. mathprof84 says: Feb 13, 2016 2:28 PM

    First of all…true or not true, the alleged incident was not harmless goofy fun. It was sexual assault, and a jailable offense. So whatever you may think of the author, or the veracity of the story, writing it off as “boys will be boys” is beyond insensitive. You must not have daughters.
    Also…impugning the source of the article (either because of his race or politics) does not reflect one way or the other on the contents of the court documents, or the apparently unarguable fact that the Manningd violated the non- disclosure portion of the civil settlement.

  152. leeroydiggler says: Feb 13, 2016 2:29 PM

    The $300,000 was her settlement from the University of Tennessee.

    She didn’t sue Manning until he brought up the situation in a 2002 book.

    Get the facts before you make assumptions about this. Manning smushed his butt, balls and taint on a ladies face, laughed about it and taunted her about it two separate times. Then he lied about it and slandered her in a book a few years later.

  153. shadywarrior says: Feb 13, 2016 2:31 PM

    Brady would be burned at the stake for this. I legitimately could not care less about any of the alleged infractions of Peyton, true or untrue. I’m just so glad this is all happening just to show the blatant hypocrisy of the NFL, the media, and the fans. Keep going, this is hysterical!

    I think there are people out there, specifically in the media with just bad intentions. Because, Brady has a checkered history of scandels that, they somehow have to create drama for Peyton to even the score. I think it burns these people for some reason, they can’t let this dude retire in peace. They used to search for reasons to say he’s not the greatest quarterback of all time by pointing out just 1 category (superbowls), but now he’s got 2, and along with every passing record he owns I’m not sure what someone has to do for a clincher to be the best…To me, he clearly is…Now that he’s got another one, they need to go out and even the score with these crap stories…So they can say Brady wasn’t only qb to have scandels during this era…”

    Brady has a checkered history of scandals? Deflategate was a manufactured scandal that a judge laughed out of the courtroom, what else are you referring too? Also Manning had as much to do with this Super Bowl win as any of the Broncos practice squad players, to say his team carried him to this win is the understatement of the year. Now that his team won that game, despite him having the worst statistical season of any QB in the league this year, you think he’s clearly the best ever? Yet Brady owning twice as many super bowls and being the sole reason they won last year doesn’t make him the best ever? Your logic is confusing to say the least.

It’s the haters who only hate everything about the Patriots and refused to see anything good about the Patriots and Brady… not that we care. We are secure about the accomplishments of our team. Secure enough that we see and appreciate other teams’ accomplishments too.

    Tom Brady’s issues have little to do with Peyton Manning. Tom Brady never sucked up to the media and never really did tv commercials. He never became America’s darling that Manning did. There are a couple of reasons for that. Brady never really tried to be bigger than the team, the franchise or the game. The other reason is that he’s married to someone just as famous and they want to lead as much of a private life as they can, given the circumstances.

    Manning has been America’s quarterback. He plays the part in public well and that’s helped him with the Tennessee scandal as well as the HGH scandal. The two quarterback as people are as different as night and day, but I will never understand the morons who booed Tom Brady at this year’s Super Bowl.

    I always wondered why Gomer left the team for Osweiler’s 1st start this past year.

    He left to go to Florida to shoot up with some more HGH.

    It’s why he looked so amazing off that Bye week vs GB, too.

    Manning actually cheated. The Pats never have.

    Mocking a former protege and flipping the bird in broad daylight is not cheating. And, we know Deflategate was made up as well.

    From a 2003 USA Today article:

    **********

    The court record includes a letter to Manning from former Tennessee cross country runner Malcolm Saxon, who Manning said was the intended target of the so-called mooning.

    “Bro, you have tons of class,” Saxon’s letter says, “but you have shown no mercy or grace to this lady who was on her knees seeing if you had a stress fracture. … You might as well maintain some dignity and admit to what happened. … Your celebrity doesn’t mean you can treat folks that way.”

    ********

    It would be nice to hear from Malcolm Saxon. I imagine his phone is ringing off the hook this weekend.

    Pretty obvious most posters have not bothered to read the story in the NY Times. Take the time to read the story, it’s not 74 pages ,the court document is. Just like what happened in framegate posters can’t be bothered to read beyond the headlines, then make ridiculous , unjustified conclusions.
    The NFL has already admitted in federal court there is no evidence against Tom. It’s pretty obvious after reading the NY Times article there is evidence Manning did something. Sickening the pass Manning got on this & the HGH .

    Your name says the Broncos never cheated on the salary cap in the 2 years they won the Super Bowl under Elway(cue the excuses), Bronco players didn’t put Vaseline on their jerseys during playoff games, Mike Shanahan never hired lip readers to steal signals, former backup Hugh Millen said Shanahan had unauthorized speakers put into offensive linesman’s helmets so coaches could communicate with them and no team has had more players suspended for PED use than the Bronco’s! Is that the reason why orange and blue own the NFL? No mention of HGH use by Peyton because he had his guys visit the man accusing him of doing this. No controversy there?

    They’re just throwing a temper tantrum so now they dust off stuff like this.”

    Peyton is done, he did choke (did you see that INT he threw) and the only reason they didn’t lose is because their defense was the best in the league and completely dominated the Panthers. Manning had a negative affect on his team this year and to say the Super Bowl was some sort of vindication for him is completely and entirely false. He was statistically the worst QB in football this season, Tom Brady threw more TDs in Denver than Manning did this year.

    My problem with it is this: Manning acts like he is this “Oh shucks, good ole boy” and its a big fake. HE’S a big phony. Everybody buys into it. Walks off the field after the SB loss to the Saints, doesnt shake hands with anyone, and gets a pass? Really? If any other QB did that, everyone would rip them. That shows poor sportmanship, no better than Newton. Calls his kicker names. Calls out his offensive lineman. Gets rules changed to his benefit. HGH (look at the forehead, the forehead doesn’t lie).

    Manning apologists are the worst. They’re the ones who keep whining about how Brady is a cheater with a shady past yet refuse to acknowledge Peyton’s own shady past and scandals. Peyton will, of course, get another free pass on this because he is the NFL’s golden boy who can do no wrong but you know what? I’d rather be a fan of a QB who’s been accused of letting some air out of footballs then a fan of a QB who’s been accused of sexual assault. But hey maybe that’s just me.

    A lot of people seem caught up with wondering what the motivation is for the NYDN putting this out there

    Many years ago Drudge put out a story on a blue dress that went ballistic. Why did Drudge have it?

    Because a mainstream news organization, Newsweek, had the story and decided to sit on it. Somebody leaked it to get it out.

    A lot of similarities.

    Is there a reason either of those stories should have stayed hidden? It’s only a “leak” if someone’s trying to suppress something. And that’s actually what journalism is all about: getting to the crux of something that “some people” want to stay secret. I’m glad the Clinton story came out. And even though this isn’t a new story, it’s a new story to me, and I’m glad this story came out.

    Last week my son, a college freshman, and I were talking about who we were rooting for in the Super Bowl. I told him I was hoping Manning would get to 2-2 in Super Bowls so as to get some people off his case. I told him I thought of Manning as an excellent role model. So I care about this story because I care about what I said to my son. I try to be the best role model I can be for him, but I acknowledge that he, and all youth, look up to people besides just their parents. So the least I can do is try to steer him in the right direction. If this story about Manning is true, it absolutely matters to me. And I couldn’t care less that the NYDN published old news 20 years later. In fact, I’m grateful, and I hope they continue to pursue the story until we all know the truth.

    That’s cool and all, but who won the ring? Stats are for losers. I would take 2001-2004 Brady the game manager over 2005-2015 star wars numbers Brady anytime. We had more championships with Brady the game manager. People can argue our championships have asterisks but I would still take the rings.”

    Who won the ring has nothing to do with how each QB performed. Anyone that watched the game will tell you that Brady was and is playing on an entirely different level than Manning, its not even close at this point. If what you’re trying to say is that Manning’s play at this point is superior to Brady’s because he’s a game manager and Brady’s not, that is purely false. Manning had a healthy offense and run game, Brady did not. Manning had the best defense in football, Brady’s was good but not as great. Manning had 11 TD and 18 INT this year, Brady had 39 TD and 9 INT.

    Saying you’d take Brady the game manager from 2001-2004 over Brady the superstar HOF QB from 2005-2015 is ludicrous and completely discounts the 51 other players that play on a football team, as well as the luck and fortune that goes into each season. Tyree drops the ball, Welker catches the ball, Vinatieri misses a kick or two, and Brady 2005-2015 would have more titles than Brady 2001-2004. Sometimes things aren’t always black and white, sorry.

    Remember Roger saying he destroyed “about six tapes” in Foxboro three days after ruling on penalties when there was closer to 40 tapes never sat very well for a lot of people.
    Roger needs to get grilled about what really was on those tapes.
    Then after that scandal gets exposed completely then lets see what Roger has to say about this “independent” Deflategate investigation he spearheaded this past year. I agree with RogerMustGo.

    Peyton is done, he did choke (did you see that INT he threw) and the only reason they didn’t lose is because their defense was the best in the league and completely dominated the Panthers. Manning had a negative affect on his team this year and to say the Super Bowl was some sort of vindication for him is completely and entirely false. He was statistically the worst QB in football this season, Tom Brady threw more TDs in Denver than Manning did this year.

    *****

    Well homie yes Peyton is probably done and I did see the INT he threw. I also saw the INT Brady threw to Von Miller in the championship game. He just about handed it to him and said ‘here ya go’. What’s the point? INT’s happen. Now nowhere in my post did I say anything about vindication for Manning but rather it was just an observation about how the media ‘really’ feels about him.

    Has Manning had plenty of positive press over the years, well, of course he has the man’s had a lot of success that can’t be denied, even by the media. However the media has loved jumping on his failures and, in my opinion, have done so with far more zest than have covered his successes. And that goes all the way back, since the media is going back to his college days today, to when he could not beat Florida.

    As far as Manning having a negative effect on his team, well, you might have a little more steam behind that argument had the Broncos not won the SB, great defense or no great defense.

    I read the entire story over at the New York Daily News (a garbage gossip tabloid that no one would ever take seriously). One thing stood out: The female trainer had something against Peyton Manning for nearly a year before she claimed that his privates touched her as he was being treated by her.

    Her story didn’t make any sense. Shaun King — that Caucasian race-baiting zealot who pretends to be “black” — tried to imply that this was a double standard? There was no merit to this story and every legal analyst agreed. Compare this with Jameis Winston: Florida State hid the allegation and criminal investigation for an entire year on his behalf!

    How is there is “double standard” if the Manning accusation was dismissed after an investigation and the Winston allegation in which Winston eventually admitted having sex with a girl who immediately accused him of assault?

    Shaun King is just doing what Shaun King does best — stirring up bogus claims of racism and double standards in order to make a name for himself (despite the fact that he is dishonest).

    If it were truly a “sexual assault” it should’ve been handled in CRIMINAL court. When people go through civil court, where these settlements come from, it’s usually all about the $$$.
    Now, let’s be accurate. She sued the university for stuff that allegedly occurred before Manning even got there. She sued Manning for TALKING ABOUT IT. Did he do something gross? Yes.

    sept 2013:

    Suspended Denver Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller unsuccessfully attempted to corrupt the NFL’s drug-testing program with the help of a urine collector before each was caught in a matter that will affect how the NFL’s collection testing procedures are done, league sources said.

    This helps explain why Miller’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy suddenly and mysteriously was increased to six games and easily could have been up to a year, the sources said.

    Miller’s initial diluted sample counted as a positive test and led to notification of his four-week suspension under the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. While Miller’s reps and the NFLPA were prepared to fight the suspension vigorously in the appeals process, sources said the NFL, NFLPA and Miller’s representatives became aware that the Broncos linebacker and the collector involved worked together in an attempt to help Miller avoid a failed test.

    Sept 2004:
    The Denver Broncos have been fined $950,000 and will lose their third-round pick in next year’s NFL draft for circumventing the salary cap between 1996-98.

    The penalties were levied Thursday following an agreement involving the league, its union and the team.
    The violations included agreements between the team and several players to defer salary payments with interest and an agreement not
    to waive a player before a certain date. Both raised issues with accounting for the salary cap.

    Al Jazeera says it had a second, “impeccably placed” source to back up the network’s recent assertion that human growth hormone shipments were provided to Peyton Manning’s wife.

    So those of us who didn’t do something stupid in college should throw the first stone at Manning…

    Why drag up something that there is no proof of over a decade later? Manning is a very upstanding individual in his adult life, and is very generous to those in need, ie Peytom Manning Children’s Hospital.

    And lastly, to the individual who says that Manning destroyed a doctor’s career, well I can say that I had looked into this doctor for a family member, and had serious doubts about their treatment methods after reading numerous articles about them several years ago, so I don’t think Manning was the first to cast doubt upon this doctor….

    ………………

    You have to read the documents before you jump to “there is no proof”. There was a 3rd party witness testimony (ie proof) and a judgement ruling that their was sufficient evidence that it occured when the Mannings smeared her in their book and she brought a defamation suit. Also the “mooning” characterization was brought by her supervisor who was not there and whose version of the story Manning latched on to afterwards. And what in the world does her “methods” have to do with whether Peyton sexually harrassed/assaulted her? Why did Tennessee let her work there for 10yrs if she was so terrible? What does it matter anyway? The fact that there is a witness and that Peytons story only matched her supervisors and no one elses version speaks to the weakness of their argument. Peyton was an entitled dirtbag in college and tried to bury his accuser after he went pro. Not the first and not the last, but a dirtbag nonetheless.

    So just to recap, Peyton leads Brady in Career Sexual Assaults

    But of course as Archie points out, she was asking for it

    Still, Brady INSISTED on testifying under oath – with punishment of perjury – in Deflategate

    Isn’t it interesting that Peyton refuses to do the same in this sexual assault and the HGH that was supposedly used by his then-pregnant wife?

  261. striggz says: Feb 13, 2016 9:42 PM

    The same people that wanted Jameis Winston off of the team for stealing crab legs and jumping on the table in the cafeteria want to excuse this incident. I wonder why? And all the smear comments? The article is presented here as something that we should question and is not posted on ESPNs site at all. Again I wonder why?

  262. alfredogarciashead says: Feb 13, 2016 9:48 PM

    Amazing how every story of a football player gone bad is immediately seized on by Pats fans to try to rationalize Brady’s cheating. Sorry Pats fans you are only talking to the mirror. Nobody save yourselves will be swayed because we aren’t listening. We know Brady cheated, that was decided a long time ago. Nothing will change that truth.

    Holy mackerel Batman. This is bad. I mean it is not like science can prove these accusations wildly wrong like in “framegate”- you know, when the people running the NFL were ignorant of something we are all taught in 7th grade?

    I liked the Peyton Manning that the media fed us. And I certainly respected his QB prowess and enjoyed every game I watched him play. And I surely hope these accusations are not true. But I fear the truth is opposite that which I hope.

    Many anti Brady posters on this site keep wondering why Patriots fans comment on these sorts of stories with such barbed remarks. Those posters must be thick as mud.

    It’s the hypocrisy stupid.

    e defenders of Manning. Remember that the case was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. If Manning didn’t do it would have continued to fight and protect his name, because being innocent there would have been no deformation. He also would likely cross sued and won. Instead he paid an undisclosed a

    Settling out of court does not mean or imply guilt. It implied negative public images to disappear. And Kraft didn’t fight for the Pats… So is that an admission of guilt?

    Many lawyers who write factual statements contained in pre-trial
    Statement/ pleadings / briefs use the opportunity to take leave of
    facts that need be proved by evidence.
    Statement like that should be taken lightly at best. persons not familiar with statements should be aware that despite the fact that they are part of the official court documents or pleadings, they have no
    substantive value and should not be taken as the truth until there is actual supporting evidence..

    You have to wonder why the NYT is trying to bring up 20 year old accusations? What is their agenda and what are they hoping to accomplish by bringing it back up? The only conclusion a reasonable person could come up with is it is straight up character assignation. It certainly isn’t relevant or news worthy.

    ========================================

    I can clear this up for you. Shaun King is a racist and a race baiter who hates Peyton because he’s white and was going up against Cam who is black. He’s been butthurt that some people dislike Cam’s dancing. Essentially every article he writes has the word “black” or “white” in the headline. He has nothing interesting to say period, but even less so if he can’t talk about race.

    The other guilty party in all of this is the University of Tennessee and their role in successfully hiding the truth. The University’s support and treatment of Naughtright through the whole matter was disgusting.
    OK Peyton and Archie’s great image is smeared by this, but how does the University get a pass for their active role in attempting to fabricate lies? The bigger $’s were probably in the gifts from the Mannings to the University for their role in the cover up.

    Peyton was an entitled jerk when he entered the NFL and let’s not forget Eli held out.

    I think Archie was the architect of those egos and I think both guys changed significantly since then. No doubt in my mind Peyton could have done what is detailed there, but I don’t think he is that kind of person anymore.

    Archie created monsters who have since grown up to be better people.

    Brady allegedly asked someone to deflate footballs so minimally that the officials who hold and place the ball on every play could not notice. Somehow that is a big enough deal for people to compare his behavior with criminal behavior. Are people so partisan now they can use logic anymore?

    Report comment
    ——————————————————

    Let’s dispel a couple of things that you and some posters may be a little confused about.

    RE: HGH

    A package was sent to his wife, Ashley, that may or may not have contained HGH. Let’s assume it did. Why do you and everyone assume it was reall secretly for Peyton?

    You are aware that MILLIONS of Americans take HGH for a variety of reasons, right? About 10 years ago, an entertainment reporter wrote a piece about how HGH was the new “It” drug in Hollywood and described it as a combination of Botox and Cocaine. Why? Because a lot of people think HGH has anti-aging properties, and everyone in Hollywood was doing it. It was WIDELY abused (and according to the report, still is).

    So it is entirely plausible that, if it was HGH, that it very well could have been for Ashley. This may shock you, but a lot of wealthy women in their 30s are quite concerned about their physical appearance.anti-aging properties.

    It’s not out of the realm of probability that his wife could be taking it for its anti-aging properties. Furthermore, it also has been prescribed for reproductive reasons. And remember, they had twins only a few years ago (Which would put Ahsley in her mid-30s). It very well could have also been taken for reproductive reasons. (They also had twins, which could be naturally-occurring or the result of fertility drugs, which would further illustrate they were trying to get pregnant.)

    Now for this latest allegation…from 20+ years ago.

    This truly is a he said/she said. He was being examined for a sports injury and the trainer claimed he moved in a way so his butt and part of his private region touched her. I don’t mean any disrespect to women, but after reading the NY Daily News article, this could have easily been a misunderstanding. We are talking about a teenager getting his foot examined.

    But what if it’s not a misunderstanding? What if it’sa the “worst-case scenario” of him purposely doing it?

    It’s nothing any of us would condone, but let’s put this in perspective. This is not a sexual assualt in terms of him forcing himself on her, raping her, touching her private parts, etc. He was an 18-/19-year old teenager. It was the mid-90s. If this is 100% accurate, most of us would consider this a “prank”. Remember, this was 1994 and the world was a different place, a much less sensitive and PC place.

    Embarrassing? Yes. But to paint Peyton as a bad guy for this alleged incident that happened 20+ years ago is really reaching to me, especially when there is absolutely no proof that he purposely put his “buttocks” and private parts on her. I’m also curious as to why this comes out the week after he wins the Super Bowl. ANd PFT, why do you delete this comment?

    Very curious timing indeed.

  292. dolphincritic says: Feb 14, 2016 1:45 PM

    I did some research and learned that Manning did in fact settle this lawsuit. His attorney might argue that many famous people have settled lawsuits to avoid the costs and potential bad press that can come from any such litigation. But common sense tells me that no one settles a suit with no merit. Some judge must have listened to the motions and decided the plaintiff could proceed. Where there is smoke there is fire. It may be a little fire but can still burn you.

    I suspect that Peyton Manning is the good guy we all believe we know and respect. I think this HGH investigation will confirm my belief. Did he stick his “Butt” in the trainer’s face? Maybe! Did Brett Farve email a picture of Mr. Who-Ha to that Jets chick? Did Roethlisberger have an episode in a bar bathroom with some babe? The saga goes on and on! Who sells more junk on TV than Brett Farve? Amswer – Peyton Manning! How many Papa Johns pizza joints does Peyton Own? Can he ever spend all of the money he has earned?

    I suspect that you will see Peyton on CBS or Fox as a commentator. I also suspect that he will be drinking a beer on TV! This is a non story unless you are addicted to tabloid articles.

    “Does anyone else find it hilarious that the only people who hate Peyton are patriots fans?”

    I’m a Seahawks fan and I do not like him. I think he is one of the most talented QBs in NFL history, but his playoff performances are terrible (even this year) and suggest he cannot perform in the clutch. He should have accomplished more (won more championships and playoff games) given the amount of talent he has and the amount of talent he has been surrounded with his whole career.

    I know about 10 other people who are not Pats fans who agree.

    Do you find that hilarious?

    You appear to be doing your “research” on Broncos blogs

    HGH has only 3 legal uses – NONE of which Ashley Manning was remotely likely to be taking – ESPECIALLY not when pregnant with twins.

    Note that neither Peyton nor anyone from the Manning family will deny that Ashley received a package from the Guyton Institute – nor that it contained HGH

    Note that the background of Sly checks out perfectly – he worked at the Guyton Institute at the time when Peyton was a client (and I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that his WIFE now gets shipments from them)

    Sly however magically recanted his story – though he went on record to state he had no idea what or why he was recanting it

    This all happened the day after two men posing as police officers who work for the Mannings showed up, not at Sly’s house – but his PARENT’S home – prompting his younger sister to call 911 in alarm (listen to the tape)

    All this may sound like the actions of an innocent man – but the rest of us are a bit skeptical

    Especially since it’s the same tactic used to squash the Sexual Assault that Peyton was involved in.

    Maybe if Peyton does what Brady did – insisting on stating his innocence under oath, under penalty of perjury – maybe some might be inclined to believe him – but for some reason Manning refuses to do so – and they could also clear this up by releasing their Guyton Institute medical records. Again – they refuse

    Yeah – innocent… right.

    Here we go again, revisionist history. Brady didn’t know Moynihan was pregnant when they broke up, she didn’t even know it at the time so he couldn’t have known. He found out about it from a tabloid reporter shoving a microphone in his face asking for a comment. At that time he was already engaged to Giselle and she was pregnant. Moynihan didn’t want anyone to know, even him, until she started to show. Pretty crappy way for him to find out, don’t you think? I’m not saying he’s a saint but he’s not quite the sinner you Brady bashers try to paint him to be.

    This event does not remove from the fact Manning is a great QB.

    It does however make him look like the typical idiotic 19 year athlete ‘super star’ who thinks women should bow before his genitals and it does make him a liar that has settled this matter out of court a number of times!!!

    Not to mention the racism inherent in the ‘defence’ of his actions!!! A small detail not mentioned in the article…
