Your attention please – the Turtleboy Sports Facebook page has been suspended until Tuesday, March 22. In order to follow the blogs you MUST like the Free Turtleboy Facebook page, which we use to post blogs whenever the Turtleboy Sports Facebook account is arbitrarily suspended. If we ever get shut down for good, this will become the new Turtleboy Sports main Facebook page.

As we’ve seen with the way in which the media has reported alleged Facebook posts from Michael Gaffney while ignoring alleged Facebook posts from Sarai Rivera and Joe Petty, the media can spin a story any way they like it. If they don’t like you, they will make a big deal out of nothing, and thus the public will assume it is in fact a big deal. This is what happened to Tom Brady last summer when World War 3 broke out because of some allegedly deflated balls in a 45-7 blowout win. Yet Peyton Manning continues to get a free pass despite the fact that he was a sexual predator while playing football at the University of Tennessee.
This is a copy of accuser Jamie Naughright’s sexual assault crisis center phone call transcript from the day in which Peyton Manning pulled his pants down while she was working on his feet in the trainer’s room at Tennessee, and teabagged her. On the call, which took place just three hours after the “incident,” she reports having been sexually assaulted by a “very well-known public figure,” admitting that, by giving away “details,” she “worried and feared for her life.”
Pretty damning stuff right there. Here’s the affidavit she submitted in 1996 when the incident occurred:
“He pulled his pants down and exposed himself to me, as I was bent over examining his foot after asking me personal questions. I reported this to my supervisor, who referred to it as ‘merely a prank,’ and no action was taken in regard to this until after I formally complained.”
If you are below someone who is sitting on a table and you are examining their foot, and if that person pulls their pants down and they are facing you, science tells you that you will receive balls in the face. That’s just a fact.
Peyton then conspired with another Tennessee trainer, Mike Rollo, to “hatch a story” that Manning was “mooning” another UT athlete. That was the version, according to Naughright’s lawyers, that Peyton Manning and Rollo provided to investigators and the media, and it was the version that appeared in the Mannings’ book.
Naughright’s lawyers attempted to expose that the “mooning” explanation was fabricated, describing the incident instead as a “sexual assault,” with Peyton Manning “committing a disgusting act and showing his contempt for someone he did not like.” The effort to debunk the “mooning” contention includes an affidavit from the alleged recipient of the “mooning,” Malcolm Saxon, along with a December 2002 letter from Saxon to Peyton Manning in which Saxon tells Peyton “you messed up” and urging him to “take some personal responsibility” for the situation.
“Coming clean is the right thing to do!!” Saxon writes to Peyton Manning. “You might as well maintain some dignity and admit to what happened.”
Pretty damning stuff right there. When your own teammates turn on you, you know you fucked up. This of course was settled out of court for $300,000, but the Mannings ruined her career and her ability to find a job going forward. During the investigation Peyton’s father Archie said under oath that the victim “had been out with a lot of black guys.” Which obviously was said to make her sound like a whore. Because if you’re from the South, it’s OK to say you bang black dudes as a way to put someone down.
Yet the media is still bending over backwards to ignore this story. It’s INSANE!!! We live in a world where sexual assault is a big fucking deal and rightfully so. Obviously both sides need to be heard and we should not rush to judgements, but there was a witness who confirmed it. Apparently if you sell enough Papa Johns pizzas you are exempt from this public scorn.
There’s a popular blogger for Fox Sports named Clay Travis who has done some good work previously and we follow on Twitter. But he’s been the king of the Peyton kiss ass patrol, because he is a Tennessee fan. It’s like all those idiots who were defending Joe Paterno at Penn State even though he covered up all that child sex abuse. And honestly, shit like this is digusting:
Yea, if a woman says a famous athlete shoved balls in her face we should assume that she’s making it all up.
Maybe her house is in foreclosure because she can’t get a job. Ya know, because the Mannings systematically destroyed her career.
No, if there was mooning she wouldn’t have been facing him. Because your ass is on your backside, not your front. There was obviously nuts in her face.
Oh yea, except for his teammate. The only teammate who witnessed it.
He posted this one today. Here’s the video:
Oh, you mean this tape, which may or may not be her (there’s not proof or evidence of this) shows the victim calling Peyton gay in a secretly recorded conversation. Case closed!! Sure, she’s probably pretty pissed off because Peyton shoved his junk in her face and it would be perfectly understandable if she made disparaging comments about him behind his back, but don’t let common sense get in the way of protecting a privileged and entitled millionaire.
We have called this guy out repeatedly on Twitter and he has engaged us. Finally we found this today:
This is what you do when you know you’ve lost the fight. When you are afraid of hearing the truth and want to run to your safe space you instinctively block the turtle. Because some people hate facts and the truth.
The bottom line is that as a feminist family blog we are disgusted by this. The mere fact that people keep calling this a “prank” as if it is some sort of bro right of passage, is the reason that the Lifetime channel exists. Mooning one of your bros is a prank. Shoving your nuts in a doctor’s face when it’s unwelcomed is sexual assault. Fuck Peyton Manning and fuck anyone defending this piece of shit.
