Peyton Manning, arguably one of the greatest football players of all time, was cited in a lawsuit filed by a group of women alleging that the University of Tennessee have created a "hostile sexual environment".

This case included other athletes and it was directed at the school through a policy of indifference toward assault by student-athletes.
The lawsuit states that in 1996, when Manning was the starting quarterback for the University of Tennessee, he placed his naked genitals on the face of a female athletic trainer while he was being examined. Manning said he was simply mooning a fellow teammate.
The trainer, Dr. Jamie Naughright, sued Manning and the teammate that Manning said he was "mooning" also refuted Manning's statement. The lawsuit was settled between Manning and Naughright with Naughright leaving the university.
It's a shame that Manning, who just won his second Super Bowl of his career, has to endure such allegations. Super Bowl 50 could potentially be his last Super Bowl and I'm sure a lot of football fans want the Sheriff to walk off in style. Let's wait and see what happens with this particular case.

For me personally, I wish the charges would be cleared so he cant remain the G.O.A.T. But if he's guilty, then I don't care if it's Peyton Manning. He must be punished.

My opinion of Manning aside, I think he shouldn't have said anything in his 'book' about the situation. He just HAD to put stuff in there. I think he did it. I think that BECAUSE he was the reason for the revival of UT in the SEC scene in football, he got away with lots of stuff. Stuff that were it anyone other than the Vols' darling, they'd have been fed to the wolves. I can't deny that manning is a good qb, but eh. I never have liked him. There's something about him that makes me so annoyed. Idk how to explain it.
Well, I think it's probably impossible at this point to prove anything one way or the other. Manning's case is settled. I think the group that included this did so precisely because they knew it would bring more attention to them. It worked, too.
@Tattoodrew Whoa bro, hold your horses for a sec. I did not need to hear about your college days my friend hahaha
Honestly if this story is true it is the funniest shit i've heard in a while 馃槀馃槀馃槀馃崋馃崋
@gatorchick96 Haha I completely agree with your evaluation of Payton! And it definitely wouldn't be the first time a college athlete got out of a situation like this. Even worse, alot of times the woman reporting the event is bullied into recanting their story.
