King: Don't assume Favre will be suspended

At a time when the early pregame shows engaged in a feeding frenzy that suggested a quick decision and a definite suspension if Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is found to have placed unwanted calls and sent unwanted photos to former Jets sideline report Jenn Sterger, Peter King of NBC has tapped the brakes and put the matter in perspective.

Even if a preliminary decision comes within the next couple of weeks, there’s no guarantee that a suspension will follow.

“Don’t automatically assume that Favre, if found culpable in this case, is going to get a suspension because he has no previous violations of the Personal Conduct Policy,” King told me minutes after presenting his report during Football Night in America.  But he added a caveat.  “They could find the offense so heinous that they could suspend him,” King said, “but it’s not automatic.”

If a suspension ultimately is imposed, Favre would have up to 10 days to file an appeal.  Under the Personal Conduct Policy and Section XI of the labor agreement, the suspension would not be implemented until the appeal has been resolved.

Though the league can’t force Favre to file his appeal any sooner than 10 days after the decision is issued, the league can expedite the appeal process once the appeal is filed.

Either way, King believes that this matter won’t be resolved before the end of the month, which means that Favre most likely will be available for each of the next four games, against the Jets, Cowboys, Packers, and Patriots.

UPDATE: Video proof.

    Jets,Cowboys,Patriots, and especially Packers————easy wins for Brett.
    Oh,Packer fans—you sure did well against the Skins today——————-maybe you can play the Cowboys in the Jerry Jones “Loser Bowl”.

    http://www.nytimes.com/1996/05/15/sports/pro-football-favre-says-he-abused-painkillers-and-will-enter-treatment-center.html
    Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre, who was named the most valuable player in the National Football League last season, revealed yesterday that he has voluntarily entered the league’s substance-abuse program and will enter a drug treatment facility because of a dependence on painkillers he developed over the last two seasons.

    what was Ben’s first offense?

  5. Wisconsin_Myself says: Oct 10, 2010 8:21 PM

    Of course he won’t be suspended. No one is charging sexual harassment. Jen Stanger wants nothing to do with this. He will get a reprimand, a small fine, and that’s it.
    Anybody who suggests he should get anything more or even attempts to compare this to Roth raping a girl in the bathroom while he had his bodyguards block the entrance to any help that may have arrived is crazy.

  6. Bob Loblaw says: Oct 10, 2010 8:23 PM

    What kind of penalty will be imposed on the Jets? They were the organization swept this under the rug hen he was on their payroll.
    Given the incident with the Spanish TV reporter earlier this season, plus they had a team “reporter” who was best known for nude and semi-nude modeling, there is a culture of sexism and sexual harassment within the organization.
    I bet a true review of these allegations will find many players on the Jets team were propositioning the message therapists and sexting the glorifed stripper on the payroll. May even find out Favre wasn’t the most offensive culprit.

  7. Herrmannator says: Oct 10, 2010 8:23 PM

    Some perspective. All this coming the week of the Jets can’t be coincidental, and this isn’t a new story. Ms. Sterger isn’t pressing charges, so the most important words in the allegations is “unwanted”, that will be tough to prove, unless she presses charges. I would assume that after the Jets week, this will go away. Strange, classless, maybe even gross, but at the end of the day, Ms. Sterger didn’t think it was a big enough deal to talk about, TWO years ago, I don’t think she will now, so it will become an NON-STORY soon enough.

    swashbuccaler……i agree with you, it will be a non-story in a few weeks. It’s been out there for over 2 years. I bet within a week or so we will find out that it was the Jets who put the fire on the smolders, just in time for a little distraction for Monday nights game.

    the guy is a douche. his wife admitted that farve was a womanizer when she was home with their kid before they were married.
    the nfl wont do anything to him as they have kissed his ass for too many years and they will again. this story came out in august and the nfl is just now getting to it because the vikes play the jets this week.
    he should have retired 8 years ago when he started all his crying!

    Farve should get suspended in the same manner as Ben… for breaking the Nfls personal conduct policy. END OF STORY!

  15. AZviking says: Oct 10, 2010 8:30 PM

    wisconsin, you are wrong. the nfl rule doesnt need anyone to be “charged”. if the player does something that makes the league look bad (in many different ways) then goodell can do anything he wants. what goodell wants to do is kiss farves ass because he brings in ratings. if this was any other player…suspension time!

  16. andyprough says: Oct 10, 2010 8:30 PM

    Unlike the NFL’s drug policy, the league probably doesn’t have any ability to impose punishment based on a “strict liability” theory with respect to personal conduct. No reason Brett can’t simply go with the “I didn’t do it, someone must have hacked my phone or phone number” defense. In fact, as we know, celebrity cell phones have been hacked in the past.
    If he simply says he did not do it and he must have been hacked, I don’t see how the commissioner’s office can impose punishment based on a he-said she-said argument. Once again, sending unwanted text messages is not a strict liability crime or civil violation in any jurisdiction, and I don’t think the commissioner’s office could impose punishment based on a strict liability theory under the collective bargaining agreement, nor could it determine the truth of the matter as to whether or not someone was hacking Favre’s cell phone at the time he was with the Jets.
    I’m not saying I think his cell phone was really hacked – just that you really have no way of proving it one way or the other. In that case, I think that under the law you have to assume Favre’s innocence. You can’t prove it was him who committed the act, you can’t prove he had a specific intent to send unwanted messages, you can’t prove any form of causation with respect to any alleged damages. If the commissioner’s office wants to punish, the burden of proof would seem to rest entirely on the commissioner to prove the case beyond any reasonable doubt – which would seem almost impossible. How do you prove a device was not hacked?

    “They could find the offense so heinous that they could suspend him,” King said, “but it’s not automatic.”

    Sending pictures of your junk isn’t heinous enough to set a precedent?

  18. Facts Domino says: Oct 10, 2010 8:34 PM

    He’s not going to be suspended, because he sent his junk to some skank, who likely sent her stuff to him at the same time.
    The only person that should have an issue with this is Mrs. Favre.

    And this is not a first offense. That’s 3 Jets employees in one season who have come forward. That is a pattern.

  20. Rhode Island Patriots Fan says: Oct 10, 2010 8:36 PM

    If the NFL concludes that a suspension is warranted, then Week 8 would be perfect. Welcome home, Moss!
    Seriously, though, in my judgment “Lord” Favre should NOT be suspended.

  21. Gautam says: Oct 10, 2010 8:37 PM

    I don’t like to write like this on women but I’ve a feeling that this thing will go down like Sterger’s clothes after the MNF game.

  22. LebronJeremy says: Oct 10, 2010 8:39 PM

    “Don’t automatically assume that Favre, if found culpable in this case, is going to get a suspension because he has no previous violations of the Personal Conduct Policy,”
    This implies that Roethlisberger did violate the conduct policy. Seeing as how he wasn’t even charged, let alone found culpable, a non-suspension following a guilty verdict for Favre would be an egregious double-standard and show of favoritism for Goodell.
    Look, I hate being maligned with Ben apologists because I have always believed him to be an unscrupulous person. With that being said, Favre is already in the same category as Ben simply by being accused of an illicit sexual advance. I only want consistency from Goodell, which is something that I don’t see in the slightest. I certainly hope Favre’s name gets cleared, but if he is found guilty, I’ll lose total faith in the NFL if there isn’t a suspension of at least 4 games.

  23. TheCaptain19 says: Oct 10, 2010 8:44 PM

    Nope, swashbucclar. Just because it’s Favre it’ll blow over. It was any other player this would be alot bigger and there would probably be a suspension.

  24. Reggie'sBush says: Oct 10, 2010 8:45 PM

    Favre did nothing punishable in my eyes (well I have thrown ink and stabbed them many times after seeing an old white guy’s floppy penis… no homo of course).
    No complaints have been filed against him not now or 2 years ago. All this does is make him look like a typical NFL player, not as a guy just having fun out there in his wranglers.

  25. jdmcmil says: Oct 10, 2010 8:45 PM

    EEFFF all you Favre haters. I guess it would be easier if he were out getting dui’s and gun charges. Whateves. A blind person can see the rat in this case. Same story that “started” to emerge before he reported to training camp.

  26. Hershal Walkers #5 Personality says: Oct 10, 2010 8:45 PM

    You know, the Jets organization should also face a penalty too, since in the story it says that a member facilitated Farve in procuring Jen phone/Myspace info. Also all Farve has to say is that his phone was stolen/hacked and that it wasn’t him. In all likelihood this will be a non-story in a matter of weeks, since Jen never filed any complaint, nor did any of the other people coming out of the woodwork. NFL should look into what is motivating a 2.5year old indecent.

  28. TylerRDunn says: Oct 10, 2010 8:46 PM

    What was Roethlisberger’s first offense? Hmm. Under the precedent, looks like Favre should be suspended 4 – 6 games for this. Considering he sent unwanted sexual attention to Sterger. And also, since he won’t be charged with anything, this in fact makes this case almost IDENTICAL to the Roethlisberger one. Hypocritical league. Oh well, Favre isn’t as good as Roethlisberger so he probably won’t get suspended.

  29. LRonHUbbub says: Oct 10, 2010 8:50 PM

    Suspension or no suspension, the damage is done to both his image and his personal life.

  30. Pervy xx says: Oct 10, 2010 8:51 PM

    Those were not Brett’s hands….a total non story..

  31. blee50 says: Oct 10, 2010 8:51 PM

    This should be an case of a suspension. What is more egregious a D Coordinator flipping the bird to some officials or a star QB sending pictures of his junk to another NFL Employee?
    What people don’t seem to understand is that it doesn’t matter if the woman wants to file a compliant/press charges. Anyone who has every worked at a large company has most likely taken a sexual harassment training course. If this was anyone else that worked at a company they would be immediately fired if the investigation is found to be true.

  32. IKNOWALL says: Oct 10, 2010 8:53 PM

    Actual NFL timeline———5 weeks to investigate,1 week to charge/submit,5 weeks to qualify decision,10 days to appeal,3 weeks to rule,suspend or not suspend—–season is long over.
    Favre and Vikes to Super Bowl!

  33. Kevin Huxford says: Oct 10, 2010 8:53 PM

    Big Ben wasn’t found guilty, though. I mean…I believe him to be guilty, but there’s a big difference there.
    If Favre was harassing an NFL employee (you see, she was a Jets employee, I believe), it doesn’t matter if she wants to pursue the issue or not: the NFL has to do something about it to prevent issues in the future.

  34. Citizen Strange says: Oct 10, 2010 8:55 PM

    Calling Roger Goodell: Favre just sexted ME!
    Now suspend him for 4-6 games.
    That is the slippery slope you get on when you don’t allow due process and do not assume innocence until guilt is PROVEN.
    Anybody can say anything. Saying something twice does not make it true.
    Oops! Favre just sexted me again. Lifetime ban right Roger?

  35. blee50 says: Oct 10, 2010 8:56 PM

    Yes, he should be suspended. . What if your mom/wife/sister/daughter worked for an NFL team? Would you condone that poor behavior? Absolutely not. At any company that took sexual harassment seriously, he would be suspended immediately without pay during the investigation.

    _____________________
    Ignorance of the facts is really no excuse! From the Georgia D.A.’s press conference:
    Q: What about probable cause though?
    D.A. Bright: I live in the world of ‘beyond a reasonable doubt.’ An honest answer: It’s debatable. If you want my candid feeling, looking at all the evidence here, we don’t even have probable cause. Probable cause is the standard to make an arrest, and we did not have probable cause. No arrest was made in this case, so there’s no warrant to dismiss. We didn’t even have probable cause in this case.
    Q: Is this case officially closed now? Or if more information surfaces will you re-open the investigation?
    D.A. Bright: It’s closed. I’ve made my decision and that’s final. It’s not going to change. I’ll tell you this: We’re still waiting on some phone records, text messages. There’s nothing going to be enlightening there. I’ve got enough information. This decision was not difficult to reach. I knew pretty early on that this was the way this case was going, but I pride myself on keeping an open mind. I wanted to make sure that we made the right decision. That’s critical. But to answer your question, it’s closed. We’re still waiting on a few bits and pieces but it won’t change anything. It’s closed.

  37. MrONE50 says: Oct 10, 2010 8:59 PM

    Good move on Favre’s part, not many QB’s can make a pass like that and not put his team in a vunerable position.

  38. SpliffStar says: Oct 10, 2010 9:05 PM

    The love affair people have with Brett Favre is disgusting. He a self-absorbed arrogant prick who sends unwanted pictures of his dick to women. That alone is deplorable. He has a history of messing around with many women (see his wifes book) and a documented drug addiction. The worst part though is the way he carries himself like he is the all American family man whose shit doesn’t stink. I hope he is suspeneded even just for one game just to knock this diva off of his high horse.

    Blee,
    I work at the corporate offices of Lowes.
    Do you think that employees do not flirt back and fourth. Do you not think that sexting, or sending images i part of that?
    I would be completely shocked if she or the other two “contracted” workers involved didn’t flirt back, or didn’t send racy texts of their own.
    Again, the only person that should have an issue with this is Mrs. Favre.
    Comparing apples to apples. Big Ben is far worse than Favre.

  45. Nasty says: Oct 10, 2010 9:18 PM

    Of course he isn’t going to be suspended. Farve doesn’t play for Goodell’s favorite NFL cities chief rival.
    You think it was mere coincidence that the Ravens got to play the Steelers on the road without Ben there?
    If Brett Favre did this, and he’s not suspended then I’m convinced that Goodell is corrupt and should be investigated by an independent party to check to see if he wagers money on the very sport he’s hired to protect.

    Tit for tat or is it tit for text….I’m not so sure anymore.
    Favre may very well get a suspension. Maybe not 4 games because he didn’t actually commit an act of sexual assualt like big Ben. (the guy is a millionaire – spring for a hooker if ‘just say no’ doesn’t work for you).
    I could see 2 games and maybe a divorce during an earning year.

  49. MrHumble says: Oct 10, 2010 9:35 PM

    Don’t be surprised if this all backfires on the Jets………she works for them, there are already reports that she has pics of several players like in this case, sounds to me like the Jets should be investigated. They knew about it 2 years ago and did nothing……what kind of culture of employment is that. If BF is guilty of anything, it is of not being discreet and that is between him and his wife. When this story looses it’s steam in a few weeks there will still be the BF haters out there. The posts that make me laugh the most, are the one’s from packer fans, lol. They want to crucify BF for something that may or may not have happened between two adults but yet they elect a child molester (chmura) to their Packer HOF….it doesn’t get any better than that. Guess we shouldn’t expect any more from redneck fans who would complain about 2 adults doing some crazy stuff but then reward a child molester……..only the sconnies could be so twisted.

  50. Hauschild says: Oct 10, 2010 9:40 PM

    It’s amazing that a basic non-story ends up being just that, yet those that went to great lengths to continually keep this in the news and to continually push it to the front burner, in a real disappointingly bizarre way, feel cheated – even though the accuser hasn’t really accused, and the evidence is highly suspect at best. Not to mention, the matter was not even brought to legal authorities.
    I hope ya’ll are proud of yourselves now after having accomplished basically nothing, except making the Jets the unfortunate ones that Favre will take it out on come Monday nite.

  55. Buck Stallion says: Oct 10, 2010 10:14 PM

    This was not a sexual assault.
    Since he only left 2 short vmails, & 2 nude pics, then stopped, it didn’t continue, so not really sexual harrassment either.
    But if I had done something like that, I would be fired. I think many of you would be too. Might not be a bad idea for them to give him a couple of games off.

    If I sent those VM to a woman other than my wife, not to mention the underwhelming ( 6 inches enraged) junk shots, and got caught, my wife would have the house, car, business, and everything else in no time flat.

The girl is a skank anyways. Have you seen her on youtube? Ugh, gross. No she was NOT an employee of the JETS! Read all the articles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ask yourself why the Vikings would encourage Favre to come back since all he did was beat Chilly’s Vikings. How could Childress or Bevell possibly know that the Packers management wouldn’t have welcomed him with open arms and tell Aaron to wait one more year? They couldn’t, so they wouldn’t have.
    As far as the other two women who have also come forward, I get a little skeptical when they claim a lawyer told them they didn’t have a sexual harassment claim because they were contractors not employees. Anyone who has gone thru sexual harassment avoidence training knows this isn’t true. Of course if you’re making everything up you could easily make this sort of inaccurate claim.

    For everyone thinking if this happened at your work the guy would automatically be fired and for those who think the league can/should do something to Favre even if Sterger doesn’t push the issue need to think again.
    Unless the employer has a rule against employee-employee relationships, they couldn’t fire someone for sending some pics unless the receiver is offended by them. If it is mutual it becomes a private situation that doesn’t envolve the employer. Although it’s not very wise to put yourself in that position.
    If Sterger doesn’t have a problem with it (which seems to be the case since she has already said she’s received these types of pictures from numerous athletes and never complained and kept the Favre pics for a laugh) then what exactly did he do wrong (as far as the NFL is concerned)? This became public supposedly by someone other than the two parties.

    If Goodell doesn’t suspend Farve over this the Steelers should take some action leading to Goodell’s dismissal.
