Well, understand that since we can only go by what Deadspin has 'reported,' I'm basing my opinion off the info we have at hand. So with that disclaimer:
Basically they way they have reported it made it sound like she wasn't terribly offended by the advances, but she didn't want to go through a physical affair with him because of his marriage and her standing with the team. I didn't get the impression, again only based on this report, that she was terribly concerned by the advances, just that she didn't want to take them to the next level.
I guess my point is that it's one thing to not want to get involved physically with someone, even if that means sometimes flirting or sending pictures, though it's another thing to be given unsolicited pictures that were neither wanted or expected. Perhaps it was indeed the latter, but we're not given enough of a clear picture on whether it's the former.
The fact she didn't step forward with any complaints about it and only now are we hearing it (thanks to a hefty ransom to acquire the story), makes me question how serious an issue it really is.
