Warren Moon requests leave of absence from Seahawks radio broadcast

Warren Moon requests leave of absence from Seahawks radio broadcast

According to the lawsuit, Moon drugged Haskell's drink without her consent during a business trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. "This week, Dave Wyman will join Steve Raible, Jen Mueller and John Clayton from Jacksonville on 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM".

The lawsuit, filed Monday in California by Moon's executive assistant at Sports 1 Marketing, alleged that Moon required the plaintiff, Wendy Haskell, to wear thong underwear and sleep in his bed on work trips, among other accusations. Haskell claims she was demoted in October for complaining about Moon's sexual advances.

Moon played 17 seasons in the National Football League, playing for the Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City and Houston Oilers.

Moon was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection.

Moon threw for 49,325 yards and 291 touchdowns in the regular season and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006. Though he won the 1989 Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his charity and on-field excellence, his career was also pockmarked with scandals involving women.

A former Vikings cheerleader accused Moon of sexually harassing her and the case was settled out of court in May 1995. Authorities charged Moon, anyway, but Moon was acquitted after Felicia testified she provoked the scuffle. The couple divorced in 2001 to end a 20-year marriage.

Moon founded Sports1 Marketing in 2010 and, in addition to working as a radio analyst on Seahawks broadcasts, serves as its president.

Haskell also alleges Moon would walk into the bathroom while she was showering in hotels on business trips. When Haskell refused, she claims Moon told her she had to comply to keep her job and that "his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement".

Additionally, Haskell alleges Moon once ripped her clothes off despite her objections.

Diana Fitzgerald also told Global News she had not pursued criminal charges at this time and that they "have not made a decision as far as the criminal aspect of the case".

"Whenever [the assistant] expressed reservations about these outrageous "job duties, ' Moon insisted this was "just the way it is, ' and threatened [the assistant] that unless she was 'comfortable" with him, he'd 'find someone else who was.' Moon insisted these 'requirements" were part of the job, and made clear that [the assistant]'s employment depended on her acceptance and compliance with Moon's lascivious behavior, demands and orders".

Moon is the first African-American quarterback inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
