The NFL announced it will continue to investigate a settlement in which the Dallas Cowboys agreed to pay $1.6 million and apologizes “to any fans who felt that they had been mistreated”. This development comes after an investigation into how online videos of cheerleaders could be leaked without their knowledge.
The “dcc making the team 2020” is a statement made by the NFL that it will not investigate a settlement between the Dallas Cowboys and their cheerleaders. The NFL claims that they have no jurisdiction over these cases.
A league official informed ESPN on Friday that the NFL would not start an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the Dallas Cowboys’ $2.4 million private settlement with four women of its cheering squad who accused a now-former club executive of voyeurism in their locker room in 2015.
According to NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy, the cheerleaders’ charges, as well as another allegation of voyeurism leveled against Richard Dalrymple, the Cowboys’ veteran senior vice president for public affairs and communications, are considered a club problem.
“The club took care of it,” McCarthy added.
The allegations involving Dalrymple were first reported by ESPN on Wednesday. According to documents obtained by ESPN and people with knowledge of the situation, the cheerleaders accused Dalrymple of using his security key card to enter the back door of their locked dressing room during an event at AT&T Stadium on Sept. 2, 2015. One of the women alleged she clearly saw Dalrymple standing behind a partial wall with his iPhone extended toward them as they were changing their clothes, according to several people with knowledge of the events and letters sent by attorneys for the cheerleaders to the team.
In the second accusation, a Cowboys fan testified in an affidavit that he observed Dalrymple take “upskirt” images of Charlotte Jones Anderson, a club senior vice president and the daughter of owner Jerry Jones, while watching a livestream from the team’s war room before the 2015 NFL draft. During settlement discussions, the cheerleaders’ lawyers brought up the alleged event, which was included in the final paperwork, which contains a nondisclosure clause prohibiting the cheerleaders, their husbands, and Cowboys executives from discussing either incident.
Dalrymple, who announced his retirement on February 2, did not reply to ESPN’s interview requests. According to a team source, he informed team authorities that he went into the cheerleaders’ locker room to use the restroom without realizing the ladies were there and then left straight after. Dalrymple released a statement on Monday night denying both accusations.
According to a Cowboys official, the team carefully examined both complaints and found no proof of Dalrymple’s misconduct, as well as no indication that he took images or video of the ladies. Dalrymple used his security key card access to enter the cheerleaders’ locker room as the ladies were changing clothes, according to the squad. A source familiar with the situation told ESPN that the Cowboys also sent Dalrymple a formal written warning in October 2015. The team refused to provide a copy of the warning or any other details, such as time-stamped data from surveillance cameras or security key cards that would indicate exactly when Dalrymple entered and left the changing area.
The disclosure of the Cowboys charges comes as members of Congress question the NFL’s investigation into workplace sexual harassment complaints against the Washington Commanders. The league’s failure to reveal the findings of the independent counsel appointed to examine the Commanders has been questioned by critics. The league may not be allowed to reveal the probe results without the agreement of Commanders owner Daniel Snyder, according to documents provided by the US House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
Commissioner Roger Goodell informed reporters at his pre-Super Bowl press conference that the league would oversee a fresh investigation into sexual harassment charges involving the Commanders. Tiffani Johnston, a former marketing staffer, testified before the committee earlier this month about the team’s “toxic atmosphere,” accusing Snyder of sexual assault.
