Tennessee fan and noted Hot Taek artist sticks up for Peyton Manning, news at 11.
I think a lot of this has been covered in other places. If it's true that Manning lied about this, they made up the whole "mooning" thing, and put it back out there for her, that's bad, but it's really a he-said/she-said thing.
What I did find interesting is this...
Regardless, the trainer filed a lawsuit, claiming that despite the fact that Manning didn't name her in the book and said his behavior was inappropriate, everyone at her new place of employment was now aware of her past history and it was causing problems for her at work. (I would have loved to have argued the other side of this case. "Really? So everyone on your new college campus read Peyton Manning's book and even though you weren't named in it and it was a couple of paragraphs from a several hundred page book, they identified you as the trainer in question from a decade ago? And now you can't do your job? If you really wanted to move on from a 1996 prank wouldn't you, you know, NOT FILE A LAWSUIT NAMING YOURSELF AS THE UNNAMED TRAINER FROM HIS BOOK." But maybe this makes too much sense.)
I would think that if it were true (full disclosure, I haven't read the Manning book, nor do I plan on it), and the allegations that she got mail at her new college about it, it wouldn't be tough to discern that a trainer who had left Tennessee somewhat mysteriously a few years earlier and had worked in the athletic department was the person Peyton was referring to in the book. I mean, hell, it wouldn't take much sleuthing to figure that out.
