All NFLN on-air analysts named in sexual harassment suits are gone, except one

The two sexual harassment lawsuits filed against NFL Network make accusations of inappropriate conduct against multiple on-air analysts. A recent New York Post headline suggests that none of the persons accused in the lawsuits will be returning to work. The headline-writer overlooked one on-air analyst.

Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin was specifically named in the lawsuit recently filed by Erin McParland against the NFL and former NFLN analyst Eric Davis. Irvin has neither been suspended nor fired. An NFL Network spokesperson did not respond to a July 25 email message from PFT seeking comment on Irvin’s status.

Every other on-air analyst mentioned in the two lawsuits no longer works for NFL Network. As Marchand reported, Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk and former NFL fullback Heath Evans are finalizing severance agreements. Neither has been on the air since Jami Cantor’s amended complaint against the NFL accused them of misconduct. (Ike Taylor also was suspended; PFT reported several months ago that his employment has ended.)

Allegations also have been made against Davis, Donovan McNabb, and Warren Sapp. All three were gone before their names arose in the Cantor lawsuit.

Last September, Deadspin.com reported that the NFL is investigating Irvin in connection with a sexual assault allegation that resulted in no criminal charges being filed against him. Under the league’s Personal Conduct Policy, action can be taken in the absence of prosecution.

  1. The pre Super Bowl interview during a media session with Ertz and his wife, where he had his arm around her, touching her hair, and basically couldn’t keep his hands off of her, was about as unprofessional as it gets.

  2. Check out the interview he did with Ertz and his wife during media week leading up to the Super Bowl. About as unprofessional as it gets.

  3. Who is the most coherent?

    a) Michael Irvin
    b) Shannon Sharpe
    c) Ray Lewis

    That is a really tough call…. I might just have to go with Ray on this one

  4. Who is the most coherent?

    a) Michael Irvin
    b) Shannon Sharpe
    c) Ray Lewis

    Haa I remember that. I think Irvin ended his interview by telling him that he has a very beautiful wife or something along those lines. That wouldn’t have been so bad if he hadn’t basically been trying to hump her leg the whole interview.

    Did Faulk claim he was taped before he harassed? Did the woman know what moves he was going to make on her?

    Now that, is hilarious, I can see it now…I never said anything to her, I said it but I was illegally being taped.

  7. I’m forced to wonder, who will do all the work once all the men have been fired from every job on earth?

    Think about every single thing you’ve ever said in public or posted anywhere and tremble. They are coming for you. It’s Salem Massachusetts 1692 all over again.

  8. This maybe a reach, since different networks, but can terry bradshaw &/or chris collinsworth get invited into the investigation…pretty please?

  9. The fact squinty, smirky, creepy Faulk is off my tv screen, is like a dream.

    Here’s a novel idea… Be respectful to women. Treat them well. Be honest, unless that honesty would cross the line into unprofessional. I bet if you do that, you can keep your job. Why, I even bet you will get promoted when the scum above you gets terminated for being slimy. I do not think it is hard at all. Maybe give it a try, and see how it turns out for you.

  12. Faulk still believes a story about videotaping walk-throughs that was admittedly false. He’s fast becoming Mercury Morris 2.0
    =====

    Why wouldn’t he?

    He said Martz ran formations they hadn’t used all year… and the Pats knew exactly what was coming..

    The conclusion seems clear, as Faulk said; either Belichick is the greatest coach ever (Faulks words) or they got the info from the tapes.

  13. pauldeba says:
    If Faulk keeps whining about the Patriots in the woods and no one is there to hear him , did he make a noise?
    ==

    He must have. After all, you apparently heard it, or why else would you be here “whining” about it?

  15. I don’t get it.
    If it comes out that you were accused of something bad 10+ years ago you should lose your job NOW?

    How about this one – if you were 15 and made a racist or misogynist joke, and now you are 40 , you should lose your job. Sounds like justice, right?

    and just like that the conversation is over.

  17. No worries…If Irvin isn’t let go for this particular misdeed, he will surely do something in the future to get fired, since his pattern seems to be that he never learns from his mistakes.

    Or maybe it’s because Isaac Bruce & Torii Holt couldn’t matchup with Ty Law & Lawyer Milloy. It also helps that you can’t play defense like that anymore.

    You’re correct with regard to Michael Irvin’s proclivity for continually getting himself into trouble.
    The problem is, the man appears to be made out of Teflon on top of Teflon.
    When you weigh Irvin’s body of work (aka decades of questionable off-field behavior), and consider he remains employed while many around him drop like flies, the question remains: what’s it going to take to finally cause him to lose his cushy job?

    In the red zone. He said they ran plays in the red zone they hadn’t run all year.
    They also scored on their drives that went into the red zone.
    Musta been some tapes.

  21. The NFL network, when not showing games, sucks as ESPN does.
    Never watch it.
    Ignorant abut football females, ask questions of ex players.

    So anytime a Black man smiles or makes any physical contact while talking to a White woman, he wants to hump her? It’s 2018, stop perpetuating old stereotypes.

  23. Faulk since his firing will be with OJ looking for the guy who videotaped his Super Bowl walk thru……lmao

    You are the only person who said “anytime”. I believe the topic was a single interview during the super bowl.
