NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell investigating Brett Favre Sexting Allegations
Are you ready for some football? Monday Night’s nationally televised NFL extravaganza features a showdown: Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings against Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets at New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Veteran QB Favre turned 41 over the weekend and became a grandfather earlier this year when his daughter Brittany Favre gave birth to a son Parker Brett Favre.
Overshadowing tonight’s play-by-play color commentary will be the serious allegations against Favre regarding inappropriate voice-mails and photos allegedly sent to Jenn Sterger in 2008, when they were both employed by the New York Jets organization.
The NFL is aggressively investigating the allegations and it is reported that Sterger, who was initially a reluctant participant in all of this media-hyped unpleasantness, will cooperate fully. Her manager Phil Reese has been adamant that his client “did not provide Deadspin with any information.”
The website editor has acknowledged that a third party sold the materials alleged to have been sent by Brett Favre to Sterger, including video, photos and text messages.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has put the matter on the “fast track”, with a probe that began last Thursday. He said: “We are going through that and we are making sure we understand all the facts. We’ll make a determination from there.”
Two other women, massage therapists, have also come forward with reports that Favre propositioned them via text messages. The women were hired by the Jets organization to provide legitimate massage services to the players.
As expected, #4 had very little to say on the subject – press conference video here.
