UltraViolet targets Peyton Manning

Zz04ZGY2MjkxZTYwZGVhNGVjZDA5N2ZmZTk4ZDMxMmNkZA== AP

The women’s rights group that has been trying since September 2014 to force Commissioner Roger Goodell out of his job has now turned its attention to Peyton Manning.

Via ESPN.com, UltraViolet has called upon the NFL to investigate Manning — and it has urged companies like Papa John’s and Nationwide to suspend their relationships with him.

“While it is outrageous that the University of Tennessee chose to turn a blind eye to sexual violence by student athletes like Manning, it would be flat-out unacceptable for the NFL and major companies like Nationwide Insurance and Papa John’s Pizza to continue to stand with Manning in light of emerging evidence,” UltraViolet co-founder Nita Chaudhary said in a press release. “The NFL should thoroughly investigate this incident before allowing Manning to play or work in [the] NFL again.”

While the allegations are indeed troubling, how can anyone properly and adequately investigate two-decades-old claims that never resulted in prosecution and that triggered litigation that was settled years ago? Manning and his accuser, Jamie Naughright, are bound by settlement agreements that, as settlement agreements often do, compel confidentiality and secrecy.

Besides, the actions at issue happened before Manning entered the NFL. While behavior predating a player’s NFL career can be used in assessing punishment for misconduct that occurred once in the league, the NFL does not assess discipline based on pre-NFL allegations, even if proven conclusively.

“Nationwide Insurance and Papa John’s Pizza must show their customers that they will never stand for sexual violence — and suspend their relationships with Manning pending further investigation,” Chaudhary said.

Again, if the allegations are true, they are troubling. But there’s no way Nationwide or Papa John’s or anyone else will be able to determine whether incidents that occurred in 1996 are indeed true.

While it’s highly unlikely that the NFL, Nationwide, Papa John’s, or any other business partners will shy away from Manning in the aftermath of the release of additional allegations from the 1996 interaction with Jamie Naughright, Manning’s second Super Bowl win indirectly has dredged up claims that he had managed to largely dodge through most of his NFL career. As his career now likely ends, Manning walks off not into the sunset but in a vague haze that may become a permanent part of his legacy.

    People need to get real lives.

  2. realtruthteller100 says: Feb 17, 2016 10:55 PM

    they should be called ultraviolent cause their trying to destroy the reputation of a legend. id never heard of this payton manning fella before the papa johns comercials but he seems to be selling a good product at a quality price. imo they need to get more facts about the aleged incident before jumpin to conclusions. better evidence, better case if u ask me

  3. ckg0913 says: Feb 17, 2016 10:56 PM

    Yes “emerging” evidence, pretty sure that this has been raised a few times over the years.

  4. cwwgk says: Feb 17, 2016 10:59 PM

    I’m sure all the anti-Goodell crusaders here are excited about being allies with Ultra Violet.

    A once tough country founded on the principles of hard work and the sweat of go getters and ones who wouldn’t settle, now just a bunch of over sensitive wussies. What a freakin joke

  6. ninkanpoopblog says: Feb 17, 2016 11:06 PM

    Quit defending the obvious you and I know there is alot more to come people who dislike the Manning’s are in a feeding frenzy now I always thought Peyton was untouchable well if this stuff and more prove right I hope for the women involved they nail the sleazy family and as an after thought right wing nut Papa john

  7. minnesotablizzard says: Feb 17, 2016 11:10 PM

    It is super creepy that society has gotten so soft over the last decade or two that they are retroactively reaching into the past and digging up Peyton Manning college shenanigans. Due to our new-found connectivity and communication through social media, some people (social justice warrior types) kinda become this weird, jump to conclusions online mob mentality, and they are always wanting to see someone lose their lively hood over allegations they personally know nothing about. Reflects a sick society.

  8. cs-lewis says: Feb 17, 2016 11:13 PM

    people like those that make up ultraviolet do not care about facts. They only care about destroying someones life with nothing more than an accusation. In their world an accusation is enough evidence.

  9. ch1ggs says: Feb 17, 2016 11:16 PM

    Shaun King is the cheapest, slimiest journalist working today. You might very well dislike Peyton Manning, but to watch recent events unfold without thinking “smear job” is akin to reviewing all of the available evidence and coming to exactly the wrong conclusion.

    The timing says it all: King is nothing more than a two-bit assassin of character who seems to be blind to the skeletons in his own closet, or came to the conclusion that he really doesn’t amount to squat in the grand scheme of things, so why not take a shot? Kudos, King, you’re a piece of garbage with just enough self-awareness to be dangerous.

    The funny thing here is that had Cam Newton played better in the Super Bowl, there would be no story.

  10. catquick says: Feb 17, 2016 11:17 PM

    This has all been adjudicated long ago. this is another example of a special interest hate group trying to make their bones at the expense of a man in the spotlight right now. I would and will be more apt to select products endorsed by Manning now that an uber liberal, ultra feminist man hating shrew crew has taken aim at them. Thanks once again, liberal left.

  11. nfl1818 says: Feb 17, 2016 11:26 PM

    A large part of the hysteria Is fueled by hatred of Roger and hatred of the media. They are inconsistent, hypocritical and disingenuous.

  12. broncomath101 says: Feb 17, 2016 11:27 PM

    it isn’t like this is a secret no? Wasn’t this news after it happened and they settled? Manning even talked about it and got in trouble because he violated the agreement to keep silent. Why is it being brought up again and why should he be punished now if not then?

    If this was brand new revealed news then I might see things differently but if you have an immature college guy who is squeaky clean poster boy for leadership the next 20 years then I think it is safe to say he has grown up and changed.

    Jameis Winston was accused of rape. Are we going to hear about it again in 20 years when he retires and demand that all his sponsors stop? Give me a break.

  13. Unchained81 says: Feb 17, 2016 11:28 PM

    Absolutely LOVE seeing Manning get dragged through the mud. It’s ridiculous that this UltraViolet group wants action taken 20 years after the fact but it’s still hilarious to see the shine come of Manning. Long overdue. That golly-gee-aw-shucks act has ALWAYS rubbed me the wrong way.

  14. truthfactory says: Feb 17, 2016 11:35 PM

    Yes, every 40 year old should be held accountable for their most crude and immature acts as 18 and 19 year olds.

    To continue to support Peyton doesn’t mean you support sexual assault. It means that you don’t allow someones bad moment as a young adult erase 20 years of outstanding work that he has put in off the field since then. He’s contributed so much with childrens hospitals, QB camps for kids, and countless other acts of kindness that go above and beyond what we expect from star athletes.

    My guess is some of these women have sons. I also assume some of their sons will do some really stupid and embarassing stuff in their teen years. My guess is these woman would want the world to forgive and forget those acts so they can redeem themselves and their reputations. I guess it could be wrong and they may want that bad act to follow thier kid as he enters his 40’s and would agree he should pay for it forever and everyone should be ashamed to associate with them for the rest of their lives.

    I hate groups like this that use these news events to make outrageos claims just so they can get on the news.

    “While the allegations are indeed troubling, how can anyone properly and adequately investigate two-decades-old claims that never resulted in prosecution and that triggered litigation that was settled years ago?”

    Ok Mr Attorney, don’t some things have no statute of limitation? Aren’t there indeed crimes that can and have been prosecuted decades after they were committed ?

    Not that I necessarily think anything should be done in this case, but it is done at times.

  16. scw1993 says: Feb 17, 2016 11:37 PM

    While it’s highly unlikely that his moneymaking partners, and the NFL will shy away from him, it’s also highly unlikely that there will be any type of in-depth investigation into his activities whatsoever.

    It’s not only the U. of Tennessee which turned a blind eye; everyone has turned a blind eye and this, too, will be swept under the rug like everything else he has evaded. Does he just pay everyone off???

    If just 10% of these allegations had been leveled at another qb in the NFL, there would be multimillion dollar investigations, and the player(s) punished. He’s gotten away with so much for so long, it’s just second nature to him…nothing sticks to him because of the aw shucks act that he has perfected, and daddy is right over his shoulder, with the big money PR fix-it.

    As much as I’ve grown to dislike Manning, this is manifestly unfair.

    With all the available resources from a highly rewarding career, is there any doubt that anyone and everyone with any dirt on Mr. Manning from the past or present will be cleansed with a lip sealing monetary award, a wink and a smile?

  25. antneejay2 says: Feb 18, 2016 12:20 AM

    It seems to me like Chaudhary thinks the alleged incident took place last week, not two decades ago. Otherwise the only reason she’d be making all this noise is to drum up attention for her group (and by extention, of course, herself).

    Golden Boys Manning and Favre get the hall pass even though they a predators.

    Big Ben gets suspended without having ever been indicted , Rice , Petersen get bent over by Godell with his arbitrary justice.

  29. sportnik2 says: Feb 18, 2016 12:54 AM

    Silly Ultraviolet, they seem to be under the impression that they are dealing with a responsible organization that is sensitive to public opinion. They apparently have no idea that the NFL is run by a spineless and dimwitted leader who isn’t going to be moved by a women’s organization or any other group that doesn’t consist of jealous owners of NFL franchises.

  30. glassforehead says: Feb 18, 2016 12:55 AM

    Is the statement in this article accurate?

    Wasn’t Terrell Pryor suspended by the NFL prior to playing in the NFL for something he did in college?

  31. silverandblack052099 says: Feb 18, 2016 12:56 AM

    Doesn’t Peyton own a bunch of Papa John’s restaurants? Kind of hard to end their relationship with him if that’s the case.

    and

    “the NFL does not assess discipline based on pre-NFL allegations, even if proven conclusively.”

    Try telling that to Terrelle Pryor.

    I supported Ultraviolet when they went after the commissioner. Sent them money, actually, to help pay for the planes flying the “Goodell must Go” banners outside of the stadiums. It was a good cause.

    I can’t support them as they target Manning. It looks like a simple mooning incident that was in bad taste, but there weren’t any sexual connotations.

    I’ll be behind you girls when you redirect your wrath toward Goodell again.

  35. williamxl22 says: Feb 18, 2016 1:38 AM

    Ask the track athlete who testified under oath that Manning lied about the incident. After reading the full story, yes it is one sided, but it also shows the lengths the Manning family went to destroy this woman. They couldn’t just let it go. Truly disgusting.

  36. akaodoyle says: Feb 18, 2016 2:27 AM

    The NFL does discipline players for things that happened prior to entrance into the league, just ask Terrell Pryor about his suspension for his selling merch. while at OSU.

    Also Manning is the one who keeps breaking the confidentiality agreement by bringing it up in books, and TV specials. He keeps opening up the door. And what has came out if true is a crime and should have been prosecuted, and they sealed an event that happened before that was described as “beyond the pale”. Compared to placing your butt and genitals on the woman’s face, what could be beyond the pale compared to that.

    Never trust squeaky clean images. HGH to his wife while he was rehabbing, alleged sexual assault and more at Tenn. Someone should be looking into the golden boy’s actions. Everyone believed Lance Armstrong too. Just sayin.

  39. joetoronto says: Feb 18, 2016 4:47 AM

    No mention of how he threw his wife under the bus?

    He’s as big a phoney as there is out there.

  40. gwhite13 says: Feb 18, 2016 4:49 AM

    NFL is trying hard to whitewash sex assault, HGH and unfortunately will.

  41. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: Feb 18, 2016 4:57 AM

    20 years ago. We are going after Peyton Manning with Greg Hardy playing? He’s been a model player for his entire career.

  42. johnniemayes says: Feb 18, 2016 5:00 AM

    LMAO!!! These naive liberals. Most liberals are just like them, they read one story and take it as fact. These people are as blind as it gets.

    People should back off this Manning story from 20 years ago. The only public information on the case was written by the plaintiff’s lawyer. If y’all didn’t know, lawyers are compensated nicely for convincing other people to believe their side of the story.

    Don’t be like these naive ill informed people.

  43. Mike Florio says: Feb 18, 2016 5:56 AM

    Technically, he wasn’t. The new Personal Conduct Policy makes clear that there will be no discipline for off-field misconduct from college.

  44. rgorr44 says: Feb 18, 2016 5:57 AM

    There is a price you pay, Peyton. Even for protected, pampered superstars.

  45. waltermercier says: Feb 18, 2016 5:57 AM

    What a shame that this ancient story has to be brought up again right after Peyton won the Super Bowl. Could it be that the media is just salty because Manning proved all of them wrong week after week? All they could say was “He’s too old, he can’t win against the Steelers/Patriots/Panthers.”

    I think it’s a smear campaign, because this old story is not relevant

  46. bigjdve says: Feb 18, 2016 6:00 AM

    Wow – they seem to be using the terms violence and sexual assault very loosely.

    I wonder what they would say when someone calls for a woman to be fired for slapping a man.

  47. sb50champs says: Feb 18, 2016 6:05 AM

    Excellent investigative journalism here!

    However, I think it’s worthy to note the accusers penchant for suing and the fact that she lost subsequent suits while being labeled a “serial litigant”. That’s relevant here no?

    Im thinking you forgot that Manning was guilty and paid her off. Maybe you didnt read that story yet. But according to you its just one story that a liberal read. And something tells me you dont know what a liberal is either.

    Folks, if you were Peyton Manning and didn’t do the heinous things you were accused of doing, would you settle or would you fight to the death to clear your good name? His silence is deafening.

  51. realpatsfan says: Feb 18, 2016 6:58 AM

    He admitted he did this.
    So what are PM fans thinking, they just want to forget this?
    It’s not like he was accused of letting air out of a football.
    Sexual assalt .
    His sponsores and products should be dropped like a hot rock.
    Shame on him.
    What if that woman was your Mother,Sister or wife then how would you feel.

  52. cdace13 says: Feb 18, 2016 6:59 AM

    While I think what Peyton did is reprehensible. Settlements were made and confidentiality agreements are in place. There’s no investigation to conduct. Let’s move on folks.

  55. Paper Lions says: Feb 18, 2016 7:16 AM

    Not a defense of UT, but ALL universities turn a blind eye to sexual assault and rape, and not just for athletes. They work very hard to keep their on campus violence statistics down. No one wants to send their daughter to a school where they have to worry that she may be raped. Schools continue to use this approach today.

  56. cuda1234 says: Feb 18, 2016 7:18 AM

    Another angry mob demanding that people should be guilty until proven innocent. Probably the same people who want to judge people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character. #ModernLiberalism

This is obviously a cash grab for her…..to let it be for 20 years and then try to bring a lawsuit against Tennessee. Society we live in today I guess!

    Mike, I just read a pdf of the new policy and although it’s procedure is clearly only applied post-draft (or once a playsr/staffer otherwise enters negotiations) it does not specifically state that incidents occuring before entering the NFL would be excluded from consideration. Maybe that’s implied? but there are sure to be many incidents of draftees with cases from college emerging after or already hanging over them. Can you clarify?

    —————————————————

    He didn’t settle with Manning while he was in college, she settle with the UofT. She filed one complain that contained 33 claims against different staff members (one of them being Manning). The University paid her $300K and let her go. This is where Shaun King failed to do a proper research because according to him everyone loved her at the UofT and then Peyton and Archie came along to destroy her career there.

  68. mmmcusa says: Feb 18, 2016 11:02 AM

    So now we move from the ridiculous to the absurd with these unsubstantiated accusations from over 20 years ago. The reactions and calls for his head frum UltraViolet are both desperate, and a sad statement on those trying to get their 15 minutes of Fame, regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

    Here’s a man that has probably done 99.9% right in his life, has given both his time and millions of his money to charities (especially children’s), and we’re supposed to believe that these accusations are what defines the man, and his legacy?? It’s a sad world if that’s where we’re at in today’s society.

    The only place Peyton’s head belongs is in a bronze statue in Canton, Ohio at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Settling is not an admission of guilt and its something wealthy people and businesses do rather than have to deal with irrational and emotional public finding out via a court case. And the only thing Manning admitted to was a mooning. There are some dumb readers out there

  73. raideralex99 says: Feb 18, 2016 1:17 PM

    Mooning someone is sexual assault?
    Wow … In that case every college student should be arrested at spring break.

  74. izzysydbas says: Feb 18, 2016 3:49 PM

    Isn’t it rather curious that the two front men (or organizations) that have lead the charge against Manning are two news organizations that are either in the process of closing their doors (Al-Jazeera with HGH allegations that have been recanted) and the failing NYDN who’s owner Mort Zuckerman has been trying to get out from under for a long time now. And of course Shaun King’s reputation is a little shaky as well.

    While other news organizations have been commenting on these ‘scandals’ notice that no other organization is willing to lend their name to these stories and certainly not willing to take the lead on new developments. I wonder why that is? It seems that most of the media doesn’t have a lot of confidence that these allegations will stand up. Instead they are content to opine from the sidelines.

    And (since we are going back to the 90’s) women’s organizations would have more credibility had they not given Bill Clinton a pass in 1998 with Monica Lewinsky and a plethora of other women.

    The sports media is really mad that Peyton Manning did not cooperate with them and lose the Super Bowl so they had something really fun to talk about.

  75. ivanpavlov0000 says: Feb 18, 2016 5:13 PM

    Perhaps Papa Johns should start offering a special where they put meat on a woman’s face?

    Manning has repeatedly violated the confidentiality agreement. Dr. Jamie Naughright just wants this to go away. He keeps bringing it up.

    He makes false statements that violate the confidentiality agreement and negatively impact her career. She sues him for defamation.

    At one point the court ruled that Peyton and his Dad Archie were saying things about Dr. Naughright that they knew were factually incorrect – like claiming she was going from room to room to have sex with black players under the guise of her job as a trainer (a claim that not only isn’t true, but has kind of racist vibe to it).

    These aren’t just the actions of a 20 year old in college. These are the actions of a self-entitled, spoiled adult and the father who taught him to behave that way.

    Naughright’s original lawsuit against U of Tenn showed a repeated pattern of sexual harassment and assault by the entire U of Tenn athletic department. Here were are in 2016 and a group of women are filing a similar lawsuit against U of Tenn, using Manning as an example of the University enabling men who sexually harass and assault females.

    The scary thing is that male athletes and athletic staff at a lot of colleges act this way, and there are a lot of players in the NFL who believe this is all acceptable.

    And when in doubt – blame the victim. That will help make sure other women think twice about reporting their attacker.

    Eli may be the luckiest QB in NFL history, but don’t put him in with the dirt bag brother. Eli is a decent guy, no assault or drug record and doesn’t choke in big moments.
