League won't confirm or deny existence of investigation regarding Favre allegations

In early August, only a day after the latest (and hopefully last) Brett Favre retirement false alarm, a report emerged from Deadspin regarding allegations that Favre, while playing for the Jets, had sent via text message offensive photos to a former employee of the Jets.

The story gained little or no national traction, and by all appearances no questions have been posed to Mr. Favre regarding the contention.  (Except, presumably, by Mrs. Favre.)

But with the league acknowledging that it’s “looking into” the videotape created by Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes before he even entered the league, several of you raised with us a very good question — is the league also investigating Favre?

In Favre’s case, he was employed in the league at the time the alleged conduct occurred, and the alleged target of it was an employee of the Jets when it happened.

So we asked NFL spokesman Greg Aiello about it.  And here’s what he said, via e-mail:  “One can assume that we look into everything that is relevant, whether we say so or not.  This is not a confirmation of anything.”

Frankly, the league would have no choice but to look into it.  If true (and we’re not saying that it is), the allegations could amount to an actionable case of sexual harassment.  Some may be confused, however, by the league’s willingness to acknowledge an investigation of some players but not others. 

But we think we understand the distinction.  For some high-profile players (like Ben Roethlisberger), the league’s only viable option is complete and total transparency, given that a criminal accusation had been made and the event already occupied a prominent position in multiple news cycles.  For other situations that have yet to gain widespread attention, the mere acknowledgment of the existence of an “investigation” easily could nudge an otherwise little-known allegation into the mainstream.

    You should have followed up with the question: “How is a college kid’s sex tape AT ALL ‘relevant’ to the NFL?”

    That douche said, “”One can assume that we look into everything that is relevant, whether we say so or not. This is not a confirmation of anything.””
    Lemme translate.
    As long as you assume that we are investigating, you’ll believe that we are investigating.
    As long as you believe it, it must be true.
    As long as you believe that it’s true and we don’t punish Lord Favre, the allegations must be false.
    Please don’t try to tarnish the good name of our poster child for drug rehab.

    Even worse, the press has given BrINT a free pass (which is more than the Saints will do in another week). Think about it for one moment, a nationallly known figure is reported to sexually harass another employee of the organization that they both work for and nobody says boo? That wouldn’t happen if this was a US Senator. It wouldn’t happen in any private corporation that I have worked at. But because it is good ol boy, BrINT Favre, somehow the press is now gunshy?
    Now we come to expect this in liberal Minneapolis where employees are exempt from league substance abuse policies, players are allowed to break federal laws by flying hookers in over state lines and speed limit postings are merely a suggestion So we can’t expect the local press to look into this with any zeal but the national press and the NFL are gutless if they bury their heand in the sand.

    Surprised? I am not. This is the same as when the League looked the other way when Favre was abusing Vicodin and instead of suspending him like any other athlete, they sent him to rehab.
    Nothing is ever mentioned about how during Brett’s first few years as a Packer, he was out with Chewy banging every coed in sight, meanwhile Dianna and baby Brittney were stuck in an apartment down in Mississippi.
    Nor has the fact ever come to light, that it was Brett in the hottub with the coed neighbor of Chmura, not Mark himself. Good thing he took the bullet for Brett.
    The commisioner isn’t about to dirty the face of the sport. Favre is one of the most recognizable athletes, and the most recognizable football player. It’s business, he’s a fake ass pos, but still a QB that wins. So there ya go.

    I agree with you 100% but its not necessarily all of PFT….its just this Moron Florio who is obsessed with Favre. Like creepy – if I were Favre I would take out a restraining order – obsessed. The NFL would neither confirm or deny it because nobody but Florio cares about this non-story.
    I’m not a Favre fan, but what’s even more frustrating is hearing all the casual fans on here talk about how much they are sick of Favre….but who they really need to be sick of are the idiots like Florio who are the ones that write about him all day.
    I agree with Fleet10 – I used to love coming to this site for news, but Florio is making this site all about drama, speculation and self serving promotion. I honestly hope that with his little promotion at NBC – the one that he is telling everyone that is forced to listen about – that they will find a replacement for him here and let it get back to legit football news.

    Here’s the difference Florio: Spikes had a video released. Nothing ever came on Favre’s behalf.
    This isn’t rocket science. Why are you such a tool?

  29. sand0 says: Sep 2, 2010 8:20 AM

    Is there really anything to this story at this point? Didn’t this lady say she was going to provide pictures to prove everything but then never did? I’m sure the league is looking into it but not so sure there is anything other than a publicity stunt to look into.

  30. alobar26 says: Sep 2, 2010 8:21 AM

    These situations aren’t nearly analogous. With Spikes, there is no doubt of the existence of the video tape. With Ben R., there were allegations made to the police, resulting in an actual criminal investigation. With Favre’s situation so far, there’s no actual evidence of pictures, and does anyone really believe a post on the internet should carry the same weight as allegations made to the police that result in a criminal investigation? Seriously?

  31. The Troof says: Sep 2, 2010 8:22 AM

    does anyone REALLY think Brett Favre could figure out how to work a camera phone? He just realized the cee-ment pond wasn’t for fishing when he played in NY

    =======================
    You are correct. BUT, it happened more than once and it showed a patteren of questionable/stupid behavior.
    That is why he got suspended.

  33. Richm2257 says: Sep 2, 2010 8:25 AM

    This story lost traction simply because the alleged recipient of those photos refused to go public with them.
    She had a friendly relationship with the guy at Deadspin who wrote the story, and he wrote it without getting her cooperation. If you read the original story, he basically told her “look, you told me about this, and if you don’t cooperate, I’m going with the story anyway”, figuring that once the story came out, she would feel pressured to provide the photos at that point.
    Thankfully – for the interests of good reporting – she didn’t. Favre may well be a world-class sexual deviant to rival Ben “Let me introduce you to my leetle friend” Roethlisburger, but a reporter basically resorting to extortion to prove a story is intolerable. He never should have run that story without proof in hand, which she didn’t provide for him.
    Without her proof, there is no story, and nothing to “gain traction” of, even if id DID happen.

    Sending unsolicited pictures of your package to a fellow employee (esp. if said fellow employee is female) will get you fired in 99.99% of workplaces around the country. Just ask Sean Salisbury. Why should the NFL be different?
    That being said. It’s really up to the girl. I see four scenarios and assigned what I believe to be the likelihood of each. It should be noted that three of these scenarios could be resolved in an afternoon.
    1. (5% likely) She doesn’t have the pictures and she was just trying to attract attention to herself. Considering how s-s-s-s-smokin’ hot she is, I doubt garnering attention is a problem she suffers from. Besides, Brett’s people would likely have slapped a libel/defamation suit on her pretty damn quick if there was truly nothing to the story.
    2. (60% chance) She has the pictures but refuses to turn them over to the NFL. Great…then go away.
    3. (25% chance) She has the pictures and is cooperating with the NFL. Look out Brett. Not only will you likely get a 2-4 game suspension, Deanna could take half your stuff and go live with Elin over in Sweden.
    4. (10% chance) She has the pictures but the NFL hasn’t contacted her and is hoping the story dies without the NFL having to pursue it. Verrry risky game the NFL is playing here- smacks of a Watergate-style fiasco where it is not the crime it is the coverup. I just don’t think that the NFL is that stupid.

  36. NOEmotion says: Sep 2, 2010 8:37 AM

    there you go again flora-ho. Defending the Patriots and going after Favre and the Vikes. Never have I read a sports related posts by a bitch that is so biased it’s ridiculous. You ever think that noone is talking about this because it’s ONLY been a story on deadspin and that’s it? The girl never came forward and deadspin hasn’t followed up on the story. But not Flora-ho, he has to keep digging for dirt where there isn’t any when it comes to the Vikings and Favre. God I hope Channing Crowder finds you and kicks the living $hit out of you so your sister website, TMZ, can catch it all on tape.

  37. Wiscdave says: Sep 2, 2010 8:37 AM

    What is the difference between Mike Wise creating a hoax and Mike Florio hyping a story that so far has been a hoax created by a model promoting her adult-oriented web site? As best I can tell, the difference is that one Mike is named Wise and the other is named Florio.

  38. cronn100 says: Sep 2, 2010 8:41 AM

    My God, Florio. You really are a “Favre Hater”. Anything and everything, credible or not, reputable origin or not, and you give the BS story some momentum. I hope you get treated like this someday. Hack…

  39. CJ SPILLER says: Sep 2, 2010 8:48 AM

    And the photos are now in the possession of Mike Florio as his mancrush on Favre increases, keeping him awake at night dreaming of how many ways he can tune Favre’s meatwhistle.

  40. radioboy20010 says: Sep 2, 2010 8:51 AM

    Lets “pose” this question.
    To the two or three of you on this site who work for a living, lets say you take pictures of Captain Stubby and send them to a female who is also employed by the same company. You are married and she doesn’t know your intentions. Think that will fly?*(no pun intended).
    Now put that into the context of having one of the most highly visible sports figures in America ALLEGEDLY doing that to a well-known female in the Jets organization.
    If it happened(not yet proven), then this is nothing more than standard sexual harassment. But the days of turning away from this type of incident are over. If the woman (or man) doesn’t want the attention, you open yourself up(again, no pun intended) to a major bucket of legal horse puckey being thrown your way.
    It’s an arrogance thing, folks. He’s you-know-who and he can do it because he’s you-know-who. Maybe that’s why Aaron Rodgers is the QB in Green Bay now?

  42. JEsTerS says: Sep 2, 2010 9:02 AM

    How dare you try to smear he who should not be named? Are you kidding? Nothing will be done with the golden child of the NFL. With all the people that have a man-crush on him you will be lucky if you dont get strung up for such blasphemy. Im am sure that if this stroy does get any kind of traction it will some how end up being the Jets fault. Probably happend while he was supposed to be on the imjury report. Did you confirm this with Mike Wise?

  43. green man says: Sep 2, 2010 9:08 AM

    How many times do we have to tell you retards that this site if for “rumors”. Florio never claimed to be a journalist you numbnuts…
    Christ, I’ve been visiting this site for years, way back when he used to beg for money and ad clicks, hell I remember dante’s draft site list and ratings.
    keep up the good work Florio, I still check daily for the early wisps of smoke that sometimes turn into huge fires.

  44. Hauschild says: Sep 2, 2010 9:09 AM

    The Troof:
    That was funny – The Beverly Hillbillies – one of the all time greats.
    Every time Florio gets the rest of ya’s all riled-up, while many see red, he hears the sweet sound of another “sale” at the register……CHA CHING!!!!
    It is pretty pathetic ethically, but the business plan is rock solid. And, as more and more unwitting people are “led to the water” and shoddy journalists are pied piping, it’s gonna be even more golden well into the future.
    Florio – get Taco Bill to create a photo of you as a Snake Oil Salesman – LOL.

    Just like the allegations of tampering by the Vikings in 2007 were convieniently swept under the rug by the league? Faver is untouchable….and Vikings fans would love to see that untouchable nature translate to the field…..judging by the continued whining over the NFC Championship game. This whining will soon rear its ugly head again next Thursday.
    Can’t wait…”Favre goes back to pass…..oh, he is sacked….is that his…..oh my god, Brett Favre’s spine has been ripped out……Paul Allen…”maybe he will only miss a couple of weeks.”

    I have a question for those who lived in Green Bay, Appleton, or Milwaukee during the Favre era. We’ve all heard stories about Favre having guys like Winters standing outside of a club bathroom while he got his Roethlisberger on inside, we’ve heard rumors about him knocking up local TV anchors, there have been rumors about him sleeping with female employees in the Packers front office while his wife was undergoing chemo – there were probably thousands of rumors of him sleeping with everybody but his wife. Yes, yes, innocent until proven guilty, blah, blah, blah. However, where there is smoke there’s fire and there’s no doubt Favre created a lot of smoke while in Wisconsin.
    For the Wisconsin people on here, based on Favre’s past behavior that you have seen or heard, how likely would you say it is that the Favre-Sterger story is true? I would say there’s an 80% chance. Your thoughts?

    foofeither, I clearly stated they were rumors. All of those rumors were out there while Favre was a Packer and beloved by all within the state. All I am saying is that anyone who lived in those areas and was at an age where he or she may have been going to bars or clubs while Favre was a Packer has seen and/or heard things. None of the rumors are above and beyond what we have seen or heard about other athletes, it’s just Favre wasn’t treated like other athletes by the media and if a fraction of the stories are true, then he’s in Tiger Woods territory. I am asking if people in Wisconsin were surprised when this story broke.

    You’re right Jimmy, this wouldn’t happen to a senator or a CEO and get away with it. But in Wi, if you played for the Pack, you can hop in the hot tub with the babysitter and no one cares. Not to mention those poor little Catholic boys…. What’s the count at now, 17? 17 priests in the Milwaukee and Superior diocese who have been accused or disciplined for inappropriate behavior, and a big black eye for the church for covering it up because good old Ratzinger was in charge and wanted to be pope. So yes, a picture sent to an adult is definitely an event worth hanging, but over in cheeseland, if you come across someone underage, you are perfectly in your rights to sodomize them. Does hypocrisy seep into your brains from those ridiculous cheese hats? You do know you’re not supposed to use real cheese, right….?

    TedTheSludge,
    The young lady who made the accusations has modeled for Maxim and now has her own web site (www.hername.net). It is not an adult web site (i.e., XXX), but it is adult-oriented in that it appeals to males who like to look at attractive young women in suggestive poses. I guess that does not include you.

    Back again I see…lookie here…a slanderous article about Farkle and FOF is back from hiding. What, did mom let you out of the basement and back on the computer after your after hours escapades with adult websites……

    Jenn Sterger said it happened. Peter King tells you that Favre is an honest, humble, family man and you believe him. Why not her? She has no reason to state any of it happened.
    Now back to prayer hour, FoF. “Hail Favre, full of grace, blessed art thou amongst women…”

    foofeither, I clearly stated they were rumors. All of those rumors were out there while Favre was a Packer and beloved by all within the state. All I am saying is that anyone who lived in those areas and was at an age where he or she may have been going to bars or clubs while Favre was a Packer has seen and/or heard things. None of the rumors are above and beyond what we have seen or heard about other athletes, it’s just Favre wasn’t treated like other athletes by the media and if a fraction of the stories are true, then he’s in Tiger Woods territory. I am asking if people in Wisconsin were surprised when this story broke.
    ———————————————–
    Yeah, rumors (same as accusations), and that’s exactly what I mean . They may or may not be true, you don’t know that. My guess is, if it had happened half as much as you intimate, there would have been something in the lines of an actual story, lawsuit, etc., especially after he joined the Vikes. You’re no better than the fool from TMZ who publishes a story without “bird in hand”. It’s irrelevant whether I believe you or not, get some actual proof instead of jsut throwing “rumors” out there.

    Ol’ CROCKS, who’s really just a kid out there, has a great PR man and an army of lawyers protecting his skeletons in Green Bay. Give it time.
    I still hate that guy and the Vikes have been taken hostage by the three stooges, Favre, Bevell, Chilly– OUT!

    “My guess is, if it had happened half as much as you intimate, there would have been something in the lines of an actual story”
    Why would there be a story? Would it affect his play? Athletes screw around on their wives all the time. Athletes conceive children out of wedlock all the time. You need that extra twist (see McNair, Steve) to make an unfaithful athlete newsworthy.
    Is it not in a sports writer’s best interest to avoid covering this type of thing? He needs quotes from an athlete to write his “sports” story. If an athlete won’t talk to him because he reported things about his personal life or the life of another athlete, doesn’t that make his job harder to do? If they publish a story after a guy leaves the team, then the current guys still won’t talk to the media because they don’t want their dirty laundry out there when they depart.
    Do you realize how huge the Packers are in Wisconsin? Businesses closed down for the day like it was Christmas when they played in Super Bowls because they wouldn’t have enough customers to justify remaining open. If the Packers decide that they don’t want a newspaper or tv station to have as much media access because they write damaging stories about their star players, they can do so.
    In Wisconsin, the Packers equal ratings/newspaper circulation. It’s not in the media’s best interest to cover the story. Trust me, if cell phone cameras were around in the mid-90s, there would be plenty of pictures of drunk Brett doing body shots off a college co-ed.

    The woman involved was blindsided (betrayed might be a better word) by the scumbag at Deadspin.
    She wants no part of this circus.
    She might talk to the NFL. But it wouldn’t surprise me if she doesn’t. And without her and the evidence she allegedly holds, there’s no case to be made.

    so if Britney Spears’ says Brett sent photos of himself then he must be guilty….you are an ass and my neighbor says you are an ass so ghee it must be true because 2 people accused you of being an ass…see I can play that game too.

    “She’s a skank, end of story.”
    If the way she dresses and making money for her looks makes her a skank, than so be it (I would have thought a skank would have slept with him). That alone wouldn’t mean she’s lying.
    Favre was a great quarterback, but with the constant lying (had drinks backstage on Paul Horning’s show and then claimed 6-months of sobriety on camera, drug addiction, demanded trade from Packers, then denied it, denied demanding the Packers trade for Moss or hire Marriucci before admitting it to Greta Van Susteran, denied he was unretiring before unretiring, denied discussing Packer secrets with Lions who “no commented” the story, denied he was coming back after retiring from Jets before unretiring, denied texting his retirement to teammates despite teammates saying otherwise, denied trashing Chili despite claims of teammates, etc.) how can people continue to view him as the honest, selfless, hates the spotlight guy that Peter King or Madden would like to portray him.

    RCIV: I never said this wasn’t an appropriate forum to discuss this or any other topic. But for brew to characterize the scandal in the catholic church as being a Wisconsin-specific issue is more than just plain ignorant and stupid, it’s insulting to the people all over the world who have been through hell.
    More to the point — the cases against the church now number in the thousands… so Brew is suggesting that a supposed 17 cases in one state (i can’t attest to the accuracy of that number, it could be more or less) are somehow worse than other places?

  81. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fat says: Sep 2, 2010 5:08 PM

    interstingly, ted thompson has said that while he’s not catholic and isn’t really religious, he plans to join the priesthood after his career as a .500, 1 playoff win g.m. comes to an end.

  82. SJ Apollo says: Sep 2, 2010 5:24 PM

    “Please provide a direct quote. Thanks in advance”
    There’s this one: “PS, when the texts/pics/calls started… [Redacted] asked Peter King about the phone number.. and King said he didn’t have that number for him. So this is a completely separate bat phone that no one including his best friends knows about. He’d ask me to send him video again.. or some shit every once in a while.. like I “did before’.. (and I never did) which means, this scum bag prolly was doing this to multiple women…”
    or this:
    “I don’t want to get famous for this.. or have anything to do with this.. but.. I hate the fact that every one loves on this guy when I can’t even stand to watch his wranglers commercials.”
    source: http://deadspin.com/5603792/hilariously-gross-brett-favre-news-to-surface-soon
    or this quote: “AND NOT A WORD OF THAT SHIT TO ANYONE. I like ya AJ… and if there is a way to expose this dude for the creepy douche he is WITHOUT me being attached to it in any way that is fine. I just want to make it clear I never met him, saw him, etc… because I don’t roll that way. That way meaning old.. or married. Some big boobed hoes have morals and souls believe it or not..”
    Source: http://deadspin.com/5603701/brett-favre-once-sent-me-cock-shots-not-a-love-story
    Or this quote from a 3rd party: “I’ll never forget when it happened….[h]er phone is the biggest little black book of these secrets. I’ve seen more naked men and shenanigans. It’s unbelievable. These boys just love to send their beautiful pictures. She showed it [Brett Favre's cock] to me two years ago.And I listened to a voicemail, too, that he left her…”
    Source: http://deadspin.com/5606008/fsu-cowgirl-friend-of-jenn-stergers-corroborates-favre-voicemail-cock-photo
    Their source for the story is cited within their article, but I don’t trust going to that site at work.
    So there are two quotes from e-mails that Deadspin received. Sterger has not denied that those e-mails are hers. She’s been quiet ever since so you can throw the “famous girl apparently wants to be famous-er” motive away.
    Favre has not commented on it.
    Favre’s Mom “likes it” (http://deadspin.com/5608607/brett-favres-mom-likes-the-story-about-his-sexting-habits).
    There’s one story reported by blogger Terez Owens that has a “friend” of Sterger who says Sterger is full of it. So we’ve got Sterger’s e-mails quoted, Sterger’s friend quoted, and unnamed “friend” of Sterger countering it, nothing from Favre, and Favre’s mom likes the story.

    That’s just the ones I know of in the last couple of years, buddy. The stories of children being moved from one foster home to another and priests being transferred to other locations instead of disciplined… And yes, of course, this has about as much to do with football as text pictures that no one has seen. So let’s keep this to football.
    I checked an offensive line strength ranking on CBSSports for an upcoming FF draft. They had the Vikes at #10 and the Pack at #22. A ‘D’ in pass pro for the Packers. Just saying…..

    That you used deadspin for backing up the story speaks volumes.
    Did the national enq. agree?
    Jesus, with as much media as there is today, if this were true, they would be all over it.
    Same goes for all the purported shenanigans when he was young.
    Besides, who cares if he was nailing co-eds? How does that affect anyone but him and his family?
    It was ok with you when he was on the packers, now you want to castigate him for it?

    Even worse, the press has given BrINT a free pass (which is more than the Saints will do in another week). Think about it for one moment, a nationallly known figure is reported to sexually harass another employee of the organization that they both work for and nobody says boo? That wouldn’t happen if this was a US Senator. It wouldn’t happen in any private corporation that I have worked at. But because it is good ol boy, BrINT Favre, somehow the press is now gunshy?
    Now we come to expect this in liberal Minneapolis where employees are exempt from league substance abuse policies, players are allowed to break federal laws by flying hookers in over state lines and speed limit postings are merely a suggestion So we can’t expect the local press to look into this with any zeal but the national press and the NFL are gutless if they bury their heand in the sand.
    Acers says:
    Hey Jimmy, I think the only one that is more infatuated than Florio about BRETT is YOU!!
    If he is so much of a BrINT, as you say, than wouldn’t you want him on the field against your pack?? Oh wait, my bad, he had 33 TD, & INTS, and his best passing % ever….oy 2 more things: HE KILLED YOUR PACK TWICE!!
    DUDE—-GET OVER IT…..time to cheer on your girl, Erin.
