NFL Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon accused of sexual harassment

A California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit alleging that the retired football star required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips.

"Soon after she began her employment, Moon demanded Ms. Haskell submit to a variety of unnerving sexual and perverse controlling arrangements, including sleeping in the same bed with him on all business trips, providing him unfettered access to the bathroom every time she showered, wearing skimpy lingerie while in the obligatory single room, obtaining prior approval for her wardrobe, and being subjected to continuous unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances".

The woman, Wendy Haskell, was working as a publicist for Sports 1 Marketing, a company owned by Moon.

Moon was sued by a Vikings cheerleader in 1995 who said he offered her cash for sex. In her lawsuit, the woman alleges that after complaining about Moon's sexual advances, she was demoted by the marketing firm.

After beginning his career in the CFL and then playing 12 years for the Oilers and Vikings, he spent the 1997 and 1998 seasons with the Seahawks before finishing up his playing career with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2000.

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.

While he won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 1989 for his charity work, his actions in subsequent years paints quite a different picture of the man. The case was settled out of court, according to the Post. Though his wife never ended up pressing charges, he was charged with assault but acquitted by the jury after Felicia claimed she started the fight. Moon and his wife divorced in 2001.

Haskell's attorney told The Washington Post that her client wanted her name to be public.

Fitzgerald said Haskell did not report any of Moon's conduct, including the alleged sexual battery, to police.

The latest disturbing sexual harassment allegations are against famed former NCAA, CFL and National Football League quarterback and current Seattle Seahawks' broadcaster Warren Moon (seen above during agent Leigh Steinberg's 2017 Super Bowl party).
