Cold Pizza's Jay Crawford and Woody Paige acc. of sexual harassment
 
[URL="http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/articles/djf500/200706281738DOWJONESDJONLINE001079_FORTUNE5.htm"]2nd UPDATE: ESPN, 'Cold Pizza' Producer Sued For Harassment[/URL]


Jay Crawford and Woody Paige of former ESPN show Cold Pizza accused of sexual harassment:

[I] In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan, Rita Ragone alleged the " sexually charged atmosphere" on the "Cold Pizza" set in Manhattan created a hostile work environment and that she was sexually harassed by Jay Crawford, one of the hosts of "Cold Pizza," and Woody Paige, one of the show's frequent panelists.

[/I]
[I] Ragone alleged she frequently complained about their behavior, but was told by an ESPN production executive that Paige and Crawford were "untouchable" and told to "keep quiet" by the general manager for Atlantic Video, a Washington production company that produces the show for ESPN.

[/I]
[I] "The sexual harassment Ms. Ragone endured during almost her entire length of employment with Atlantic Video for ESPN Cold Pizza was pervasive and open," the lawsuit said. "ESPN supervisors and other ESPN Cold Pizza talent repeatedly witnessed the sexual harassment and condoned the repulsive behavior of defendants Paige and Crawford."

[/I]
[I] The final episode of "Cold Pizza" aired in May, the lawsuit said.

[/I]
[I] Ragone, who worked as a make-up artist for Atlantic Video from February 2005 to April 2006, claims it was apparent Paige and Crawford had engaged in similar sexual harassment towards other female employees, but the behavior "was not only ignored, but considered humorous by Atlantic Video and ESPN management."
[/I]

[I]According to the lawsuit, Ragone alleged that she endured harassing behavior on a daily basis, including vulgar and obscene sexual proposals, Paige grabbing her buttocks several times despite her objections and Crawford, on one occasion, forcing her into the corner of a room and telling her "he wanted her."
[/I]
[I] The lawsuit said Ragone contemplated leaving on several occasions due to the harassment, but she was dependent on the steady income from her job to care for her mother, who suffers from severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic bronchitis and other health problems.[/I]

[I]Blogger charged in cover-up.[/I]

According to Rita Ragone, the make-up artist who has recently filed sexual harrassment charges against members of the Cold Pizza cast, has included in her charges a Redskins web moderator. According to Ms. Ragone, "I tried to post on his web-site because it is so well known and respected in the sports community. But, every time I posted, I was subjected to ridicule by a moderator going by the name SmootSmack. Well, it turns out Mr. Smack works for ESPN. I tracked him down and realized it was this weird looking asiany mexicanny or something looking guy who's always hanging around the make-up chair. Well let me tell you, I am going to put the Smack down on him!!!"

Ms. Ragone stated she had been posting under the name "Hesscl34".

This is repeat behavior for ESPN employees unfortunately. Harold Reynolds anyone? And from what I hear Steve Phillips is notorious for this kind of stuff, too. Woody Paige is a buffoon. Anyone who has watched his bumbling, moronic act on Cold Pizza/1st and 10/Around the Horn can attest to that. I used to like Jay Crawford. Unfortunately a lot of these guys are ex-athletes or have spent their entire career around pro-athletes, and it's a testosterone-charged environment. Obviously I'm sure it's a small % of people who act in this way, but with all those meathead "analysts" roaming around, I can see how ESPN would be the type of place where harassment is more common than other workplaces.

If these guys get cut loose from ESPN we should sign them up here for veteran minimum deals. Perhaps they could even turn into role models for us one day?!

LOL

I disagree. Furthermore, we don't know for sure unless we've actually worked in multiple environments.

I work in a male dominated industry, as is my office. And we've been leveled with some very high profile law suites. I just don't think these allegations or this behaviour is unique to ESPN.

Just as with anywhere, it could simply be a few inappropriate comments at the wrong time along with an opportunist.

I dunno, I think they would probably be a big locker room distraction. I mean can you imagine how they would treat Hess? Can you imagine her reaction? All of a sudden, discussions about "tight ends" and "going deep" would become massive flirt-a-thons and that would get 12th in a dither, probably cause Schneed to call for personal censorship rights, both AMD and TMC would lose their lunch, 'Quake would post endlessly to no end but to prolong the discussion (oh wait, that already happens), and LadyBrave would become so generally disgusted that she would likely sue the Warpath.

Meanwhile, that asiany - mexicanny moderator would ban us all to protect his job.

What a stupid suggestion Matty.
