Brad Childress talks Deadspin report, Favre MRI

When Brett Favre casually answered his first inquiry about Deadspin’s report that he sent lewd pictures to former Jets employee Jenn Sterger, the Vikings quarterback probably didn’t expect the story to blow up quite like it has.

In the 48 hours since Favre first spoke, the NFL admitted they are investigating Favre.  The Jets are cooperating, and Favre now faces further allegations about his behavior while with the Jets.

On Saturday, Vikings coach Brad Childress said that he addressed the team (and Favre) about Favre’s situation and the team “won’t let it become a distraction.” 

Another concern for number four heading into the Jets game is the health of his elbow. Favre underwent an MRI and he has mild inflammation.  Favre has been limited in practice during the week in an effort to relieve pain.

    It is impossible that this would not be a distraction.
    Like Nixon saying Watergate “is not a distraction.”
    It’s the 500 pound gorilla in the room.
    Chilly may be putting up a brave face. But get real.

  2. Rocky70 says: Oct 9, 2010 3:07 PM

    Obviously, the inflammation in BF’s elbow is due to over-use while using his text feature on his new phone ….. Alternating hands (while playing with his one-eyed worm while texting) would greatly reduce the wear & tear on his elbow …..
    All kidding aside ……… I’m surprised it took this long to expose the ‘real’ BF ……. Everyone in the great state of Wisconsin has known for many, many years ……..

  3. Northstar says: Oct 9, 2010 3:12 PM

    Give it a rest.
    Next PFT post: Favre has slight tickle under armpit at practice. May need surgery.

  4. DeuceBigalow says: Oct 9, 2010 3:13 PM

    Favre has been limited in practice during the week in an effort to relieve pain.
    TOO BAD the PAIN is coming Monday Night. David THE HIT MAN Harris, Calvin Pace, Bart Scott, Jason Taylor, Shaun THE BIG KATT Ellis, YIKES!!!!! Just throw an INT and save your body Brett!!!! or give it to AP!

    id imagine all that constant wacking to get it up for the photos sent to sterger didnt help the elbow issue.

    Perfect excuse for this creep to ride off into the sunset on IR.

    Chilly looked at the pictures and wasn’t able to validate the Favre penis.

  8. Ted_Thompson says: Oct 9, 2010 3:21 PM

    this couldn’t happen to a nicer guy/teammate and team for that matter. Too bad old #4 wasn’t around for that whole sex-boat thing a few years ago. The people of MN are pretty nice and don’t deserve such a crappy excuse for a team. We’ll see how long they have one…

  9. Sweepthleg says: Oct 9, 2010 3:24 PM

    Ummmm…. Who cares? Famous athlete cheating on his wife with hoes? Yeah, haven’t heard that one before.

  10. KD says: Oct 9, 2010 3:36 PM

    Just like Nixon didn’t think that a burglry at a hotel wouldn’t be a distraction.

  11. Jaredfallon says: Oct 9, 2010 3:42 PM

    What are you 6? A pro athlete who cheats on his wife. Tiki Barber barely made the news and she was carrying Baby Barber. These are pro athletes, not christianrock stars

  12. Pinhead Greeny says: Oct 9, 2010 3:48 PM

    I just sent a pic of Favre’s johnson to Chilly…

    I am so sick of this bunk story….
    You Favre and Viking haters enjoy sucking this tit while it lasts until proven to be a load of crap…
    Even if Favre does mess around is it your business? How many of YOU or your wives or husbands are playing the same games behind the back…oh yah, it is happening big time amongst a base of people as big as PFT

    Hey, Jets, play the game on the field.

  17. Beast Of Eden says: Oct 9, 2010 4:08 PM

    I wonder if Childres is simply going to use Randy Moss as a decoy until Rice comes back. He’ll find a way to screw this up. He is an awful coach.

  18. RagnarTheBloodAxe says: Oct 9, 2010 4:09 PM

    If there is any merit or evidence to these accusations (which I doubt) I think the bigger story should be…
    Why did the Jets and the NFL wait two years to investigate this, only letting it surface right before a critical MNF contest between the two team?
    Frankly, I’m going to wager that there is no merit to this and if that’s true, and I were Favre, I would own the Jets organization when all is said and done.

  19. ItsallaboutBrett says: Oct 9, 2010 4:09 PM

    Well Brad, Ben Roethlisberger was suspended 4-6 games for conduct detrimental to the NFL. Of course we all know that Brett is a moneymaker for the NFL so Goodell won’t do a thing (at least not this season). So it probably won’t affect your team since Brett a favorite of the league, the officials, and the media.

  20. mrf47 says: Oct 9, 2010 4:15 PM

    Suddenly Chilly wants to bring back Johnson.

  21. MACHINE GUN IBIZA says: Oct 9, 2010 4:22 PM

  22. Poo Flinging Monkey says: Oct 9, 2010 4:22 PM

    The NFL’s poster boy sending dong pics to Jenn Sterger! Roger Goodell has a serious headache right about now.

  23. TotalPack says: Oct 9, 2010 4:23 PM

    Oh Pervy, Pervy. I am so sorry this hurts so much. He breaks your heart at the end of important games and now you have to lower him off your pedestal. Sad, sad. Also please let your spouse or partner know that you have cheated, because it sure sounds like you have.

  24. steelkiller says: Oct 9, 2010 4:24 PM

    I have not seen any direct evidence of this sexting incident yet. So Favre HAS to be considered Innocent…period. But I find it funny when NO evidence whatsoever was around, and even proof that the first girl in Nevada was clearly Lying,,,ALL of you came in here and pronounced Ben Guilty….Irony huh ?
    Regardless to how this turns out legally, it still is EVERY BIT as putting the league in what Goodell called a bad light. Which is why Ben was suspended. Well I beeter see a Damn suspension for Favre too. Or Goodell is Capatain Hypocrite!

  25. SFNFLer says: Oct 9, 2010 4:32 PM

    ——————–
    Barely made the news? Are you kidding me? His affair was all over the New York press and the yenta magazines like People. It was the main reason he was mercilessly booed at the Bears game last week. Try not to post such garbage in the future OK?

  27. Shreve11189 says: Oct 9, 2010 4:36 PM

    Why would anyone ever cheat on Deanna Favre? She’s gorgeous.

  28. BigBear123 says: Oct 9, 2010 4:37 PM

    Its not a moral issue of Favre cheating on his wife, its sexual harassment that the league is investigating.
    Expect the investigation to wrap up fairly quickly. Favre is not smart enough to have his “hookup” phone in someone else’s name, phone will be traced to him. League will summon Chilly to verify that is Favre’s body part, take a few witness statements and case closed.

  29. Pale face says: Oct 9, 2010 4:48 PM

    I see this “injury” being a perfect excuse for favre to retire without having to deal with this stuff in public. what a fraud

  30. Clevelander says: Oct 9, 2010 4:50 PM

    “When Brett Favre casually answered his first inquiry about Deadspin’s report that he sent lewd pictures to former Jets employee Jenn Sterger, the Vikings quarterback probably didn’t expect the story to blow up quite like it has.”
    Are you kidding me? After seeing the hell that Tiger Woods has been dragged through in the past year, Brett knew damn well just what he was facing when this first got reported (and ignored by all the news outlets oddly). Why do you think he’s been so lousy this year? A sore ankle? Please. He knows that with one little text, he just lost his image, his future on tv, his wife and half his money. All these years of great football, and he wiped it away by being stupid.

  31. Vikadontis Rex says: Oct 9, 2010 4:53 PM

    Yeah this is totally the same situation that Big Ben was in earlier…. I’d be surprised if the NFL didnt suspend Favre at least the remainder of the season….

  32. JetGreeeen says: Oct 9, 2010 4:54 PM

    Old. Creepy. Douche.
    This is the Sterger quote that will be Brett’s lasting legacy.
    AWESOME!!! Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

  33. hardhead2 says: Oct 9, 2010 4:55 PM

    Heard the voicemails Brett left for Jenn Sterger.
    Sure sounded like him.
    Saw the pics too.
    It may be short but it sure is skinny.
    Feel sorry for Deanna for more than one reason.

  34. Tjackfan says: Oct 9, 2010 4:58 PM

    Honestly, who cares? This is what happens when you have half a month between football games, and the last team that you faced was Detroit.

  35. dabus says: Oct 9, 2010 4:58 PM

    he should counter sue for the elbow injury, if she would have came over when he called he wouldn’t have had to take matters into his own hand, therefore causing strain on the elbow

  36. CanadianVikingFan says: Oct 9, 2010 4:58 PM

    Too many Favre and Moss articles, it is getting really boring. Can we get more articles about you know, the team? I’d rather read a Starcaps case, no offence.

  37. btg19 says: Oct 9, 2010 4:59 PM

    Seriously folks, if you are over the age of say, 20 (I use this age because I think if you’re 20 you should be at least beginning to pull your head out of your ass), stand up, walk to mirror and look into it. Ask yourself an honest question: What do I gain by spewing annonymous poison onto comment sections on blogs?
    Grow up.

  38. garywizard says: Oct 9, 2010 5:01 PM

    Sean Salisbury had his career destroyed for MUCH less than this … Why does Favre get this “hands off” treatment ???
    Who died and left him GOD of the NFL ???
    And the guy is a royal choke artist to boot in the big games … Throwing the key interception at the end of the game as if he were doing his best Pete Rose impersonation …
    just my two cents

  39. exactlyright21 says: Oct 9, 2010 5:02 PM

    “didn’t expect the story to blow up quite like it has”
    The only place this story is trying to be blown up is right here on PFT.. Nobody else really cares

  40. skijumper says: Oct 9, 2010 5:03 PM

    Hey Vikings Fans? Enjoy the baggage that comes with this guy. He pulled the same crap in Green Bay fooling around with an NBC news anchor. She left and became Dallas’s biggest fan.
    Another reason – Farve is no longer in GB.

  41. TheBaySay says: Oct 9, 2010 5:04 PM

    Favre could have retired a few years ago as one of the most respected players in the game. This is an unfortunate ending for such a career, but one which he selected. Deanna should be talking to the lawyer for the former Elin Woods.

  42. jimmySee says: Oct 9, 2010 5:05 PM

    If it were not true, then Brett should have said so at the press conference. A simple — “none of this is true — I deny it. That’s not me. It never happened” could have put this to bed — or at least slowed it down.
    But he did not use the opportunity to tell us it was not his voice on the messages or his photos — which only adds fuel to the fire.
    The Jets may not be blameless here — for example, why hire young women as massage therapists for football players.
    But in the end, Brett like all of us, is responsible for his own conduct.
    And in any job, anyone sending those sorts of photos to another employee, under any circumstances, gets fired.
    Unless, maybe, their employer is Hustler. And then probably, anyway.
    No matter what Chilly says, this is a huge distraction. And will only get bigger.
    Hard to believe that Randy Moss is not the biggest distraction in the room.
    The Vikings are nothing if not entertaining.
    Can’t wait ’till Monday.

  43. Pervy xx says: Oct 9, 2010 5:06 PM

    Big Mac,J. Allen, Harvin, Moss, the William’s Wall. These guys have all been dragged through the mud with problems wether as a pro or in college. I see this situation uniting the team, not unbuttoning them like you all wish for. Now they see no one is exempt from bs, not even a legend like Brett Favre.
    They will have his back Monday night and humiliate the Jets. I will repost this Tuesday as you will see I’m a football savant…

    ===================================
    I think you’ve posted the same stuff on a few other threads.
    Favre’s a public figure. He makes a lot of money off of endorsements and his play, which is done in a public forum in front of fans that ultimately put millions in his pocket. He’s fair game, just as Tiger Woods was.
    Stop being so self-righteous. If it was a player on another team, you you wouldn’t be defending him, and if he were a Packer, you’d be all over it.
    Hell, Viking fans are huge hypocrites anyway. For years, this guy was reviled and called everything by Viking fans, and you guys now pull out the kneepads for him and ignore what a douche he is.

  45. JimmySmith says: Oct 9, 2010 5:14 PM

    Childress is a buffoon and this recent statement to the Press is more wishful thinking than it is reality. He knows it isn’t true but this is hardly the first time he lied about BrINT going all the way back to the tampering charge. He might have thought he got away with it but karma keeps coming back to bite him squarely in the ass.
    But face facts, he has nowhere to go. If the QB is the face of your franchise, would you rather go with the NFL leader in INT’s and a terrible playoff performer since 2001 (a decade ago) who can’t keep his little penis out of the spotlight or do you prefer to go with the Division II QB who has perfected the jump pass better than the English language and immediately adopts the “Deer in the headlights” look during the playoffs?
    And to think the Vikings paid an extra $7 million for the privilege of bringing BrINT back to run the team. That’s the funniest part of it all.

  46. GB3Pack4 says: Oct 9, 2010 5:16 PM

    I don’t see how – if this is true to even a mild dgree – he would get out of at least a suspension by the League – that would end that incredible streak in the most appalling way, not to say what it would do to what’s left of respect for him.

  47. Deb says: Oct 9, 2010 5:22 PM

    This seems like much ado about nothing.
    Sterger said she kept the texts “for laughs.” If she wasn’t victimized, it wasn’t harassment. If the massage therapists were hired to work on players in the training room, why would Favre have their cell numbers? And no lawyer would provide the legal advice they said they got. Much of this just doesn’t add up.
    And anyone who thinks this kind of stuff is unique to Favre–if he did any of it–is a fool. This stuff goes on with guys on every team … just like smoking dope, PEDs, painkiller abuse, domestic abuse, you name it. And it’s gone on since leather helmets. I may not approve of their private lives. But their job is to play football; their private lives are none of my business.

  48. hardhead2 says: Oct 9, 2010 5:26 PM

    Now that the NFL is investigating Brett, I wonder if they’ll bring out the chains for a measurement.
    And will the official hold up two fingers indicating Brett came up just short?

  49. lebowski says: Oct 9, 2010 5:29 PM

    I just love the way this jerk’s reputation has fallen apart over the last year. Choke job in New Orleans. Sympathy photos of his foot (at least we hope that was his foot, with this latest round of shots who knows). Wearing out his welcome with yet another d-bag offseason. Dragged off tractor and onto team a week before season only to stink it up the first month. And now, the coup de grace. Public humility. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

  50. TorVikeFan says: Oct 9, 2010 5:31 PM

    I’m was wondering the same as you, RagnarTheBloodAxe, when you asked: Why did the Jets and the NFL wait two years to investigate this, only letting it surface right before a critical MNF contest between the two teams?
    The release of the “evidence” (for want of a better word; it appears sketchy at best) 2 years later, on the eve of the Vikings-Jets game, is fishy at the minimum. It seems to me like a mischief-maker is trying to distract Favre and the Vikings from the game.

  51. Shut up FOOL says: Oct 9, 2010 5:31 PM

    I agree cheating is NO big deal. But doesn’t the NFL have a “Code of Conduct Policy”? Maybe this ordeal can get him fined and/or suspened?
    But really how in the hell does this guy have a sore elbow?? he sat out pre-season and is coming off the bye week. I guess it will play out on MNF.

    Comparing the 2 is the most retarded thing I have ever read on this site, and that’s saying something.
    Ben was caught by video and eye witnesses, not to mention law enforcement looked into it.

    im not saying favre didn’t do anything. but i do think its pretty f.cked up that its just coming out now. if it was a big deal like it seems to be turning into. why wait over a year to say anything about it. seems shady.

  54. defensiveplaymaker says: Oct 9, 2010 5:37 PM

    Dear Packer nation……you really are a classless organization. From Ted Thompson……all the way down to the fans. You are thankless. Brett Favre (and his teammates that year) won a super bowl for you. He’s set the record for most consecutive starts. He has played through pain. He plays with a love and passion for the game. He enjoys playing the game and that is why he has been up in the air about playing the last few years. He’s over 40 now and his body has endured a lot of punishment. I’d like to see any of you bashing him on here to play as many games in a row as he has and not miss a game. Yeah, didn’t think so. There’s a point when you get older and your body starts telling you no and your heart and mind want to continue. I like how so many of you doubted him last year and he had one of the best, if not THE best year of his career, including sweeping your sorry arses. It’s no wonder he’s thankful to be in Minnesota with dealing with a classless and thankless organization and fanbase for all those years. I realize not all Packer fans are this way, but to the ones that are, get some class, common sense, and grow up. I look forward to Favre and company beating you twice again this year! Peace.

    “But their job is to play football…”
    “Sterger said she kept the texts “for laughs.” If she wasn’t victimized, it wasn’t harassment.”
    *******************************
    Their job is to play football, and with that job comes the responsibility- and the clear expectation- that they will conduct themselves in a way that represents their employers well.
    Favre exposed himself to the woman, without warning. So, legally speaking, you’re right: this may be closer to assault than harassment.
    And to be clear, “laughing” may mean she wasn’t traumatized, but it certainly doesn’t mean she wasn’t legally “victimized.”
    Say a 41 yr old man walks up and flashes a young woman in a parking lot.
    If the sight makes her burst out laughing, is he suddenly innocent of any wrong-doing?
    Harassment (usually) refers to continued behavior after the target/ victim has made it clear the sexual advances are unwmated.
    Having an old man’s c*** show up suddenly on your cellphone doesnt even give her the chance to say “not interested”.
    If these allegations prove to be true, Favre will be punished by the league.
    Now, about the “massage couple”- my guess is the lawyer simply said:
    “look, a celebrity came on to your wife, and backed off when he found out she was married. What exactly do you think you can sue him for here?”

    Pervy xx –
    Huge difference between Favre and other people. He’s famous, craves attention, and has people regularly looking for dirt on him. Regular people get away with this because they’re anonymous. He should know better, but he apparently doesn’t care because he’s above everyone else. The NFL wouldn’t be investigating if there was no basis to the claims, so unfounded or not, there’s at least some substance to the story.

  61. absolutsaints says: Oct 9, 2010 6:26 PM

    Those pictures helped Favre throw the key interception in the NFC Championship game. IF those pictures had never been taken, Vikings would be SUPERBOWL CHAMPS. Way to go Favre!

  62. Mel Kiper IV says: Oct 9, 2010 6:30 PM

  63. Brewdogg says: Oct 9, 2010 6:31 PM

    Has anybody asked what kind of conversations these two had in the trainer’s room? Or how he got her number? Or how about how a “third party” got into her voice mail and facebook page and sent that stuff to Deadspin against her wishes (since if she wanted them to have them she would have done it herself…)? There are some issues with this issue….

    Now that you bring up classless orginization’s even you should know that Brett never acted like this in Green Bay. He just started that when he heard he could be released so that he could play for the CryQueens. Even you should know that HE WAS DOING THOSE DEEDS SO THAT HE WOULD FIT IN WITH THE QUEENS. Enjoy your season, you deserve it no matter how it turns out.

  67. frank booth says: Oct 9, 2010 7:26 PM

    @defensiveplaymaker
    The Vikings and their fans are the ones who are classless. The way the organization and the fans have dropped their drawers for this guy is pathetic. He hems and haws, doesn’t show up for camp, and each and every one of you phonies drools over him. A man who was once reviled by the Viking fans joins the Vikings and steps all over them and their coach, while the Viking fans kneel down with their mouths wide open, swallowing every bit of Favre that they can get. What a bunch of hypocrites. Favre is thankful to be in Minnesota as long as you kiss his ass- it’s that simple.
    Its hilarious how Viking fans have now become total Favre apologists. He landed in the right organization- a wishy-washy one that when Favre says “jump”, Viking fans and staff say “How high”?
    We have our turds in Chicago- Brian Urlacher is one. And Bears fans don’t try to pretend that this guy isn’t a huge douchebag. Most fans will call out their own players, but apparently not in Minnesota.
    The Packers organization did what most teams with any bit of dignity would do. They tired of the diva act, of him holding the organization hostage with his annual talk of retirement, and let him go on his way.
    And let’s face it- if he were still a Packer, Viking fans would be all over him.

  68. heavysett says: Oct 9, 2010 7:30 PM

    Big surprise, this comes to light two years later, days before the Jets are going to play Minnesota.
    If you can’t see through the BS you need to get your eyes checked. If it wasn’t an issue when he was with the Jets, it’s not an issue when he is going to play against the Jets.

  69. The Doctor says: Oct 9, 2010 7:36 PM

    Brett needs to take Monday night off. I would not want to be him when the crowd unleashes its venom.

  70. Mick730 says: Oct 9, 2010 7:53 PM

    Hey heavysett:
    You should try getting your eyes checked or possibly get examined to see if you even have a brain. This story came out in August. Can you and the rest of the Viking losers get that through your pointed little heads? The reason it is news now is that Deadspin released the voice mails and the porno text messages. It has nothing at all to do with the Jets. In fact, the Jets have almost as much to lose in this matter from a legal standpoint as does Favre.

    @ frank booth- Enough with the Urcracker bs…you Bears fans still kiss his ass…..
    and btw…Favre had his best season and should have been in the SB last season….why wouldn’t we bend over for him?? That’s called America know it all….you know, where you cut throat and do what it takes to get the prize. You sound like a lawyer who didn’t cut the mustard…

    @Franchise …
    Ben Roethlisberger was falsely accused of rape. The operative word is FALSELY. The police didn’t “look into it.” The state bureau of investigation ran a full-scale investigation–complete with witness statements and a medical examination of the accuser that showed she was lying. They did not have intercourse. There was NO video of ANY incidents involved in this accusation. A security video showed Roethlisberger entering the club and the woman following a short time later. The witnesses refuted most of what the accuser and her two friends said. The authorities made clear that there was no evidence of sexual assault. The commissioner in suspending Roethlisberger said he found nothing to contradict the authorities.
    Roethlisberger was suspended for bad judgment, public drunkenness, etc. –not assault. So these two cases are QUITE comparable.
    @Sacram3ntal …
    Sexual harassment and flashing are two completely different issues, not to be confused. For Favre to be guilty of sexual harassment, his behavior has to fall within one of two areas. Either it has to be a quid pro quo situation where he is threatening punishment unless she gives in to his sexual demands or grants favor in exchange for meeting his sexual needs OR he is creating a hostile work environment based on her gender. In either case, the Jets, as the employer, would be party to the suit.
    1. So far no evidence has been produced to prove those are photos of Brett Favre. They’d have to prove it’s Favre, that they were sent by him, while he was in the Jets’ employ, and that they were not solicited.
    2. She did not file a harassment complaint at the time.
    3. She kept the photos for two years and told people they were funny. If she now wants to claim she was traumatized, I want to sit in on the cross-examination because a lawyer would eviscerate her.
    4. The massage therapist’s husband claims a lawyer told him they had no legal recourse for harassment because she was a contractor. No competent lawyer would have told him that. It isn’t true.
    If Favre sent unsolicited sexts or made unwelcome advances to coworkers, there may be a sexual harassment claim–although since it wasn’t pursued while both were still in the Jets’ employ, I don’t see how it can be pursued now. But if it’s simply a case of a married man making a fool of himself, I find it distasteful, but none of my business.

    “Even if Favre does mess around is it your business? How many of YOU or your wives or husbands are playing the same games behind the back…oh yah, it is happening big time amongst a base of people as big as PFT”
    It’s always a playah’s used up, beat down ho who’s the first to defend him. Hahahahahaha. Favre groupies are all the same.

    No, no law school. But I went to the U of Minnesota for part of my undergrad, and lived their for a while, so I have plenty of experience with Viking fans.

    Deb-
    You semed to have missed most of the points in my post, but no matter.
    Here’s the gist- even if Favre acting distastefully/ lasciviously isn’t any of YOUR business, that doesn’t mean it’s isn’t the business of his employer(s).
    You’re right; you have absolutely nothing to do with this. Agreed.
    Favre’s extramarital (and pretty gross) sexting being made public is an embarassment to the NFL, to the Jets and even to the Vikings.
    So, all those parties- I guarantee you- consider it their business.

  77. Clevelander says: Oct 9, 2010 10:10 PM

    Here’s a thought, now that the cat is out of the bag, how many other women will come forward with pictures and texts from Favre? Nobody expected Tiger to have a harem when the news first broke.

  78. Calistin says: Oct 9, 2010 10:18 PM

    LOL @ EVERY VIKING FAN POSTING!!!!!!!
    Same people that were condemning Brandon Underwood, with pages and pages of hateful, ignorant, and racist comments about the Packers, are now defending Brett and saying it’s no big deal. Hilarious. Even more funny is that it’s your starting QB whom you’ve all been on your knees for the last 2 years.
    How’s that foot tasting?
    Yeah what goes around comes around and you all deserve every comment b/c you know if the shoe was on the other foot, as it has been in the past, you’d be all over it.
    Hypocrites. All ya’ll. Quit crying.

    Has anyone seen any proof yet? Yea, I didn’t think so…..nothing more than an attempt at money…..stupid money grubbing bishes!

  80. seals says: Oct 9, 2010 11:09 PM

    dude, this story hit months ago, why the re-tred. She was hot, Favre was dumb for sending them but she was hot. Packer are getting the pucker. This just in ,,,,,,,,,,,Brandon Underwood was paying for it, 4 was selling it. Big difference you JON.

  81. sand0 says: Oct 9, 2010 11:15 PM

    People act surprised. The NFL is practically Holywood. Jen Sterger has probably seen a hundred schlongs. It is pretty weird to send that and the fact he’s married makes him a douche for it. But I don’t know that it qualifies as grounds for suspension since there is no charge filed and he hasn’t necessarily broken a law.
    Well, that is assuming any of it is true. But if it were all false I’d think Favre would be denying it a little more feverishly.
    This team has quite a few characters on it, that’s for sure. Annoying having to read all the negative press at times. Entertaining as hell though overall. Make for a good movie someday.

  82. Saints-America'sTeam says: Oct 9, 2010 11:58 PM

    I used to root for Farve throughout his career (unless he was playing us, of course), but the more I hear about and from him…well I’ve come to dislike him a great deal.
    His whiny diva ways and now this. For those who say all men do this…you’re delusional. I heard the recording. It’s him, no doubt. Unless there’s anything else though, asking a woman to visit him is not grounds for NFL suspension. The pics? Only his wife (and all the other women he’s cheated with) knows whether it’s him.
    So all I can say is he makes me sick, because I know he’s a sleaze bag, and I believe Steger and the other women who have come forward, but I don’t see any suspensions coming from this. I only see a scorned woman who has nursed him kept his home and supported him through all these seasons. I feel badly for Deanna.

  83. Green n' Gold says: Oct 10, 2010 12:31 AM

    Just another SCHISM following around the diva. That’s all he can do these days, blow games and divide locker rooms. Nice to see he’s going out like he should, in flames. Serves the selfish prick right, it’s called karma Brett, you POS!!

  84. Deb says: Oct 10, 2010 12:44 AM

    @Sacram3ntal …
    You don’t seem to get my posts. When I say it’s none of “my” business, I mean it’s not the public’s business. And it’s only his employer’s business if it rises to the level of sexual harassment. But yes, of course you are right that the NFL may choose to make Favre’s extramarital shenanigans their business because the NFL is increasingly becoming the most hypocritical bunch of facist stormtroopers in modern memory.
    The NFL can’t reasonably decide they’re appalled by Ben Roethlisberger and Brett Favre but think it’s fine that Vince Young assaults people in strip clubs and Brandon Underwood hires hookers and gets into fights with them resulting in rape accusations–while his wife is giving birth.
    Again, the authorities found the accusations against Ben were without merit. So in both Ben and Brett, you have two guys making asses of themselves in an unsavory public way. In Vince and Brandon, you have two guys making asses of themselves in a unsavory and illegal ways in public. Yet their situations were dropped with no repercussions–why? Because Young and Underwood don’t have the same high profiles as Ben and Brett. And when that’s the criteria on which the NFL makes its decisions, the NFL is a corrupt, hypocritical, facist organization that should not be making speeches about its values.
