NFL Doesn't Care - Just Fines Brett Favre $50K


I think the only reason the NFL even bothered to fine Brett Favre was all the noise and buzz generated by Brett sending sexts and naked photos to Jenn Sterger. The NFL says they could not prove that Brett sent them so all they did was fine the guy for not being candid enough with the league. While $50K might seem like a lot of money, it is about the interest Brett makes on his salary each week so, not too big of a hit.

It was so small that Jenn Sterger and her attorney were pretty ticked off about the whole thing. Jenn's attorney told The New York Times, "Our evidence and the personal testimony of Ms. Sterger clearly showed a pattern of lewd and offensive behavior by Mr. Favre that lasted all of the 2008 season.”

this slap on the wrist really disappointed me...i'm a huge fan of roger goodell...imho, the man is a rockstar commissioner...interesting combination of tough and compassion. i don't get this at all. boo nfl.

It's still a boys club and if they let Michael Vick play anyone can play. I hear when OJ gets parolled he will join the Jets.

And really isn't the real punishment here that now everyone knows what a inky dinky pinky dick Brett has.

"It was so small..."

I see what you did there. :)

I'm sorry, but do a Google search for images of Jenn Sterger, and then let's start talking about "lewd and offensive behavior". Can she ever keep her boobs in her shirt? What about the many nude pictures of her? I can only imagine what pictures she sent Favre!

What does she want the NFL to do? Maybe 50K isn't much money to Brett Favre, but all the negative publicity will cost him millions. If she wants a personal settlement she should sue him.

Has Brett retired, and if not, what is he waiting for? Geez. How old is Lil One?

Come on, it is obvious that this chick is just another star f'er. The severity of the NFL's punishment for him is just setting the stage for her own lawsuit. She is probably just upset because with this slap on the wrist it makes the whole thing look like small potatoes and now she will have to take other avenues in hopes of getting a payout. If she was so upset with the whole thing how come she waited so long to report it? It took a website getting the info from a third party for this to come out. After seeing all the attention it got someone started seeing $$$$.

I don't understand why Favre is being so vilified in this situation. He, probably, did not sleep with the girl, he text her. Everyone is acting as if he raped her. Anyway, the statue of limitations on this is running out for her. I predict she will be hiring Allred by next week.

This is how it all starts...next thing you know he's the next Tiger...what a douche!

F*CK Brett Favre! $50,000 is nothing to this chooch! I really hope that when he gets inducted that Green Bay says that he can't be inducted in their uni but unfortunately that won't happen. If the NFL had any balls they would make him go in as a Jet...but we ALL know that the NFL is a weak do nothing league and won't do this!
When Ray Lewis goes in...I wonder if they'll have his mugshot next to his bust? I mean the "man" is a murderer!

chopchop said...

Yeah, blue sky, the girl wore a short skirt so she was just asking to get raped. Welcome to the year 1950. *BigAssEyeRoll* Jenn can have her "tits out" all she wants. If she didn't want the lewd texts and asked him to stop, A MAN SHOULD STOP. Period.

And rebellious, Favre has retired and un-retired three times already. I'm pretty sure after this season's miserable failure, this time will stick. The bad news for him though is that now he has to go home to his miserable wife who is, no doubt, *really* pissed off now.

Vanessa said...

If she felt what he did was harrasment why didn't she press charges and why didn't she sue him...prior to this getting into the media.

Did he commit a crime by sending her dick shots.....probably not....did he rape her or molest her...no

What does she want the NFL to do....they aren't in the morality business. They can't arrest him and fining him more would just be ridiculous b/c at the end of the day he wasn't charged or convicted by the court system.

Jennifer said...

I never got to see the actual pics he sent...anyone got a link?

Jamie's Girl said...

Still love Brett, but he's a good ole boy, and always will be. Yes, and stupid. He's really stupid.

nancer said...

i hope whatever mrs. favre gets out of this costs a hell of a lot more than 50 grand.

blue sky said...

chopchop, who said anything about being raped? This has nothing to do with physical sex. I'm saying if she can take pictures of herself naked and post them on the internet, I'm sure she has no fear of sexting naked pictures of herself to man. Well, maybe she has, and the guys have released them to the public via the internet!

zandra said...

Here's an idea if you are getting annoying or lewd texts, change your number or block the incoming number. I don't think I can muster up much sympathy for Jenn when she did nothing proactive to stop the "sexts". But then we wouldn't know who she is, and she wouldn't have a potential payday then either would she? He's a horney jerk but by allowing them to go on for a year when she had the power all along to stop them, it makes you seem a more than willing victim.

Jennifer said...

I'm not supporting possible sexual harassment, but really - 2 years after the fact this gets brought up, after she no longer works there? This whole thing just sounds like a money grab attempt. 2 years later and all you have is old texts on an old phone no doubt... and I'm sure Favre didn't have his old phone anymore either. Hence the inability to find anything useful. I think since it went through the NFL legal channels that she can't do anything else at this point anyway. Goodell is a bit more harsh than the law, so I'm sure if there were anything usable Favre would have been suspended long ago. I mean Roethlisberger lost 6 games just for making the NFL look bad when charges weren't pressed.

I don't really buy her story.
I don't know why she waited so long to complain about the texts.
How did he get her number?

I just think it's a bit weird that he would just send nude photos if there wasn't something going on.

You would have to flirt with the guy a bit, no? A guy wouldn't just send photos of his penis unless she gave some sort of interest. I just don't believe that a guy would send pictures unless he felt that the woman was hinting that she might be interested.

I read somewhere that she told a friend and that's how the story leaked. I think the friend said she thought it was funny?!

I guess when the story came out, she had to formally file a complaint.

Who knows...

K said...

Negative publicity? Seriously?

I think as someone who lives outside that state, I can express quite poetically what most of us who don't really care who Brett Farve is/does feel about this:

-----> *shrugs*

MCH said...

My husband said $50k is just a drop in the bucket for Favre.

I don't understand why she waited so long either, but it's interesting to see how much more quickly this has been swept under the rug, compared to other athletes.
