Former Under Armour president accused of sexual misconduct

24 February 2018

Multiple women told SI they reported their concerns to human resources and their respective supervisors but no action against Ussery was ever taken.

"I'm probably not supposed to say this, but". "Actually, I'm going to the movies with friends". Accusations of mysogynistic behavior by former team President Terdema Ussery at the core of what victims called a toxic work environment. A company spokesperson declined to confirm when Ussery left the company or the circumstances behind his exit.

In response to the accusations against Ussery this week, Under Armour said "While we can not disclose specific personnel matters, [we] takes these matters very seriously".

The NBA said Cuban's remarks were detrimental to the league. She told SI that while shocked she was not surprised because she had been warned about Ussery.

"What I missed, again, is I didn't realize the impact that it would have on the workplace and on the women that worked here and how it sent a message to them that, if it was OK for Earl to do that, who knows what else is OK in the workplace?" I abided by the details of that contract for four years, and received counseling during that period to avoid future instances.

'I thank Buddy Pittman for helping me to grow during that time, and I thank Mark Cuban for his willingness to help facilitate that growth'. Immediately following the publication of the report, the team did offer two statements that team was engaging independent investigators in response to the allegations. The league said it would "closely monitor" the investigation.

The two companies will explore opportunities for A2 branded butter and cheese, and a jointly-owned packaging factory. Fonterra will be working with their current Australian dairy suppliers and assist them transition to supply A2 milk.

"It's not a situation we condone", Cuban told SI. There's all these things that can happen if you don't play your minutes hard.

"This was, like, a year-and-a-half of tanking, and that was too brutal for me, but being transparent, I think that's the key to being kind of a players' owner and having stability", he added.

Former team president and CEO Terdema Ussery was described as a known sexual harasser of female employees before he resigned in 2015, but he was not considered the only problem. And the team has tapped outside counsel to investigate.

The owner of the Dallas Mavericks recently acknowledged that his team (currently boasting a record of 18-40 and good for the 4 overall pick in the upcoming National Basketball Association draft) is in fact tanking.

"And how does a man like Mark Cuban, who repeatedly brags about how hands-on he is as an owner, who past year if you'll remember, got involved in the minutiae of counting the number of games team beat writers attended when deciding how to hand out credentials, say that he never knew any of the stories that it took a couple of reporters just a few months to collect?"
