Former NFL Films employee Nadia Axakowsky has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit, claiming she was harassed by multiple male co-workers in almost 20 years working at the NFL’s in-house documentary arm.

According to NJ.com, the lawsuit says Axakowsky was subjected to unwelcome sexual conduct and comments, groped and told she would lose her job if she refused to go on a date with one of her superiors.

Axakowsky’s employment was terminated in September of 2016.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the lawsuit “has no merit,” adding, “We will vigorously defend these claims in court.”

    Given how the league, especially under Goodell, has bent over backwards to conceal, minimize and be an accomplice after the fact to domestic abuse, I doubt this will surprise anyone.

    I don’t know. This is the sort of thing that should have a short statute of limitations. Wait 20 years until after you’re fired and then sue? It either didn’t happen and she’s just pissed or it happened and she really didn’t care but now that she’s fired she’s trying to scorch the earth.

    She put up with it for 20 years??

    20 years, you get canned, and now you say something? Apparently, if it did happen it wasn’t that big a deal to you or you would have…I dunno, QUIT and then file a lawsuit. At face value, the real victim here is the legitimate pursuit of equality and women’s rights for the sake of frivilous litigation.

    Oh yes. This is a smoking hot gun that will be drawn out for years to come.
    Looking forward to it Roger.

    “I hated the hyper-masculine environment at NFL Films so much I chose to work there for nearly twenty years of my life.”

    ok she is a “former” employee who said nothing for 20 years?

  10. iamthehorniestmanintheworld says: Jul 2, 2017 12:10 PM

    It was ok for 20 years. She got fired. She mad. Day after she got fired, Nadia, Gloria Allred on line one.

    She was let go in 2016. The reading comprehension on this site is hilarious. It clearly states she worked there for 20 years.

    I’m sure all commenting against would be happy to see a family member; their mother, sister, or daughter experiencing these kinds of unwanted approaches,…that culminated in the retribution of firing…after declining on ‘dating’ a supervisor or coworker….
    and after 20 years of service, no less.

    Nice.

    Speaking of reading comprehension…..you’re correcting something that didn’t need to be corrected.

    Worked there 20 years… no problem. Gets fired and all of a sudden sexual harassment and lawsuit. Very convenient.

  15. struckgold49er says: Jul 2, 2017 2:19 PM

    Gloria Allred ,on line 1…!!

    You can’t even say “You look nice today” without risk.

  17. akboot says: Jul 2, 2017 2:33 PM

    S O P for some who gets mad b/c they aren’t as attractive as they were twenty years ago, and are not getting the attention they once possessed. “Its the harassment as to why I’m not beautiful anymore”. I’ll sue and all will be better… Seen this movie before.

    LOL. Cave Men will soon be extinct. Bill OReilly and Bill Cosby are some real trend setters in cleaning up that swamp.

    It used to be that when you got fired, you got another job. Now when you get fired, you get an attorney.

    Leave it a Patriot cry baby to jump on this thread in 12 minutes. What’s the rush to whine?

    It couldn’t have been bad for 20 years, but one incident probably pushed her buttons to short circuit. Let’s wait for the facts…..that is foreign to cry baby nation.

    Should be obvious by now that it’s smarter not to. Is this really going to require formal training? Good grief.

    “You can’t even say “You look nice today” without risk”.

    Of course you can. You just need to be smart enough to say it to the proper person and in the proper setting. Being unaware of those factors while saying it makes you creepy.

    Yes, you can’t. Why is that is that so difficult? Why can’t you treat women as co-workers and not comment on their looks ? It’s work, not a bar. Do you tell your male co-workers they nice as well ?? Why is this so hard to comprehend ?

    Get on welfare quit whining.

  27. grandstandrice says: Jul 2, 2017 5:34 PM

    She would have sued sooner but she was waiting until someone more sympathetic was in the White Hous.

  28. stuvian says: Jul 2, 2017 8:15 PM

    I hope she sues the pants off them
