What’s Up With the NY JETS, NFL Investigating Brett Favre for Allegedly Sending Nude Pics to Sideline Reporter Jenn Sterger
RUT-ROH, why does this sound like deja vu all over again … The JETS and an inappropriate sexual incident with a sideline female reporter? Sounds like Mexican reporter Ines Sainz, was not the first. Is there something in the water at the NY Jets practices or what?
Brett Favre alleged to have sent naked pics of himself to Jenn Sterger … sounds like a good ad for Southwest, Hey Brett, Wanna Get Away? Not another sports superstar caught in a sex scandal? Move over Tiger Woods, here comes Brett Favre. We shall wait to see if true. However, if it is, what is up with these high priced sports legends and the lack of understanding that texts can be saved indefinitely? Brett may have wanted to have stayed retired after this story, or at least cry for us again, the drama queen.
According the the New York Daily News via DeadSpin, the NFL is reportedly investigating the matter of future Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre allegedly sending naked pics of himself to side line reporter Jenn Sterger.The incident is reported to have occurred two years ago when Favre played with the NY Jets. At the time of the alleged incident, both Favre and Jenn Sterger were employees of the Jets.
Crimesider spoke to CBS News legal analyst Trent Copeland, who said that even though “Favre is a hall of fame-caliber quarterback, at the end of the day, he’s an employee.” And just like any other employee, he’s supposed to follow the rules and regulations of his employer, especially regarding the treatment of other employees.
Sterger was also employed by the Jets at the time of the alleged incidents.
This week, not only does Brett Favre turn 41 years of age, but on Monday night he and the Minnesota Vikings go to NYC and play the JETS. Actually, they travel across the river to NJ and play in the Meadowland Stadium.
The real juicy story is posted at Deadspin (warning, adult language). Part of the story goes as follows, ” … But then, one night, Sterger received a picture on her phone which was so shocking that she just tossed it across the room. It was his dick. Brett Favre’s dick. And it happened multiple times”. Oh my, and it gets worse.
Last winter, close to the Super Bowl, Ms. Sterger and I were discussing a possible collaboration on the proposed “Deadspin Swimsuit Project,” which turned into a conversation about the whole “athlete dong photo” phenomenon. She claimed that she’s been on the receiving end of several of those types of cell phone interactions by drunk men, some of whom were professional athletes. We later had a phone conversation about who some of the more well-known dong-shot senders were. One person, she claimed, who was very into cell phone-donging her was none other than Brett Favre.
From Deadspin, the audio of Favre leaving messages for Jenn Sterger. Yikes, certainly sounds like his voice.
Favre may have refused comment on the voicemails and pictures of his private area that Deadspin claims he sent to Jenn Sterger when he played for the Jets in 2008, but he soon may have to provide answers to Roger Goodell.
The NFL is investigating Favre’s reported behavior and it becomes an even bigger story with Favre returning to the New York area Sunday with the Vikings for Monday night’s game with the Jets. Deadspin first reported the story in August and this week supplemented it with voicemails and pictures.
According to ESPN, the NFL is reviewing the matter.
When asked about the matter, Favre had no reply and stated, “I’m not getting into that. I’ve got my hands full with the Jets.” However, this story is not going to go away, especially with Favre playing at the JETS this week. What timing, eh? Deadspin reported that Favre sent voice mails to 26 year old Sterger and then X-rated photos of himself. It was also reported that Favre told Sterger that a Jets media relations manager would give her his number or ask for hers.
This story will most certainly have legs with the New York media on it. We shall see what direction the story goes; however, nothing would surprise me any more with the situations athletes place themselves in these days. They have not been role models for quite some time.
