    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    This may sound bad but not totally shocked.

    When he was in Edmonton I heard that he abused his wife as well. That was a rumour I’d heard anyways.

    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    I have a feeling over the next couple years a lot of damning stuff is gonna come out about a lot of people's heroes. Not painting everyone with a broad stroke, but we've all (most of us have) seen crap. It certainly exists.
    I have no respect for those that do this crap. Hoping the stories about Moon are inaccurate, but...

    I shake my head in disbelief. It's all I can do.

    Damn, damn and damn.

    A very sad day for me.

    Need to search my heart to decide what to do with my "name" on this site, as well as the autographed Moon jersey that I have bravely ad proudly worn to Ottawa games.

    Why don't you do the un-2017 thing and wait to find out if he's guilty or not. If so, then change your name and get a new jersey. Everyone needs a new jersey every now and again.

    I'd say this, though. If what she alleges is true, he's a sick mofo. Take him out back.

    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    On one hand, we have to be careful of knee jerk reactions as our society should still follow the rule of "innocent until proven guilty". Some of these stories may turn out to be false negatives. Unfortunately, though, most will not.

    On the other hand, I think sexual assault/harassment/misconduct is unfortunately far too common, and too many people, men and women, have suffered in silence and fear for far too long. It's good that more people are speaking out that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and the people that do it should face the consequences. It may mean fallen heroes turning into villains in the short term, but hopefully it brings about a new generation of real heroes, and more people that treat each other with respect.

    This.

    If you're a person who truly has used your power to be a manipulator, abuser, and all-around sicko, then yes, you should be locked up and the key thrown away. But I do worry about the very real potential for the #metoo movement to be exploited by someone(s) looking for their 15 minutes of fame.

    I echo your sentiments as I guess I may be changing my avatar...it's tough when someone you consider a hero from your childhood falls from grace...I read the story and while I understand that everyone is innocent until proven guilty the details provided by the alleged victim are pretty detailed and the fact that she was willing to have her name published and suffer all of the attention that goes with it is pretty telling.

    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    I think we have to wait and see what becomes of this first before we cast judgement.

    Please, please don't take what I'm about to say as any endorsement of abuse of any kind. But when I read the story what I read is the women says that Warren required or demanded that she wear sexy lingerie to bed and that they share the same bed when on biusness trips. So what is she saying, yes she slept with him and yes she wore the lingerie in compliance. I scratch my head when I read this as does my wife. Like come on women, walk out of there, don't go on the trips. I have to wonder about the situation here some what yah know.

    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    Been trying to follow this story, but there does not appear to be much out there. Did find this though:

    "Warren Moon has yet to be served with the lawsuit filed by Wendy Haskell, but he is aware of the claims contained in it. Mr. Moon denies the claims by Ms. Haskell. Mr. Moon contends these claims are meritless, and he has every intention to vigorously defend himself in court".

    SO - vigorous denial

    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    Seems like they should be able to get to the bottom of a lot of these claims by talking to other members of the company etc about the e-mails and expectations etc.
    I'm very responsible, when ever something goes wrong they always say I'm responsible.

    Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

    Have not. Like I said,it was a rumour so I didn’t take it for much more than that.

    I do hope it’s not true because I look up to Moon. Hell of a player.

    Re: Warren Moon is the next celebrity accused of sexual harassment.

    When Bill Clinton was the US President in the 90s, he was found to be a sexual predator and yet he was NOT disgraced or run out of office by the US congress, media, public, or women's groups. Did this lead to a belief by some that this kind of behavior was OK?

    I was shocked that Bill Clinton was given a pass on the above behaviour but by the time his wife Hillary ,who is an enabler for Bill, was a candidate for the Presidency, I was no longer surprised and I am not surprised at all the celebs and men in positions of power who use and abuse that power over women.

    There are too many in positions of power who lack a moral compass and put their personal or political interests ahead of doing what is in the public interest.

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely.............. no surprises here other than the fact that if you are in a more "liberal" camp you tend to be less vilified by the press and other politically correct dimensions of society. Still.... wrong is wrong, and until these people are dealt with harshly and made an example of this crap will continue to exist and more people (women AND men) will fall victims to these egocentric vultures.

    I guess it depends on your definition of sexual predator. IMO, Bill Cosby is one and he used drugs and his celebrity while Clinton used the power of the Office of the Presidency to facilitate his conquests and he of course literally used the Oval Office.

    “Oral sex” is without a doubt considered sexual relations. Slick Willy was a serial predator and viciously attacked, with the help of Hillary, any one that accused him. The whole “Listen and believe” that Hillary was stating during her run ups were hilarious considering the way her team crucified Broderick.

    Times are different now and Bill would have gone down hard if what he did then happened today. Even prominent Democrats are saying he should have resigned now.

    So because he was in a position of power all the women he had "sex" with (or just a beej) didn't consent? What utter, 2017-era drivel.
