More on the Brett Favre timeline, consequences coming tonight

The various network pregame shows from Sunday morning glossed over two important details regarding the burgeoning Brett Favre brouhaha.

First, how would Favre’s appeal rights affect any suspension?

Second, how could the NFL suspend Favre for a first offense under the Personal Conduct Policy that resulted in no criminal charges and no civil claims?

If you watch Football Night in America and the Eagles-49ers postgame show, you’ll get answers to those questions.

You should also watch the Eagles-49ers game, since it’s essentially a playoff game for the Niners, who can pull back into contention in the “NFC Worst” with a win.

    You are such a pimp Florio….

    It’s not really his first offense though.
    For some reason his addictions get glossed over.

    He was a slimeball socially in Green Bay throughout the ’90s, hung out regularly with Chmura, a guy who had sex with a high school girl…draw your own conclusions.
    I saw these two punks at the bars regularly back then and all I can say is this doesn’t surprise me. He won us a few games, lost a few big ones. I’m just glad he’s Minnesota’s problem. Cause that is all he is.
    Pants on the ground, Brent.

    I heard the niners and eagles are all wearing crocks and watches during the game tonight.

    I’ll only watch if I get to see Rodney smack you around again.

    Maybe someone else posted this before, but have you noticed they are wearing pink everything for Breast Cancer Awareness, in an attempt to attract and keep female viewers? And there’s a scandal brewing with a very popular player who may have a habit of sexually harrassing female employees. That’s probably why they might want to move on this so quickly

    I speak for everyone when I say ” I can’t wait for even more Brett Farve news!”
    Seriously.

  8. FranklySpeaking says: Oct 10, 2010 4:00 PM

    P.S. From the looks of things, I’d say “Pervy” is the perfect name for Favre.

    ——————————-
    Gimme a break! His addiction to painkillers was the result of a doctor prescribed treatment for football injuries. The drug was legal. He didn’t go out an get illegal refills, he got them from the doctor. He never failed any NFL testing for banned substances. He decided on his own to see further treatment to get off the pain meds. There is simply no comparison, and no merit to your dumb comment. Favre has never been in any trouble with the NFL. Period.

    How is this a story? Either post what the details are, or stop reporting non-stories.

  12. RunningOutOfCommentNames says: Oct 10, 2010 4:05 PM

    Damn Florio…Can you embarass yourself some more before the game kicks off?…Football fans will be sure to tune in, with or without this lame pimping….if the game was on any channel, we’d watch it….

  13. BigBear123 says: Oct 10, 2010 4:09 PM

    Hopefully Tony Dungy can offer some of his wonderful insight into this situation.
    WWTDD?

  14. Ben Bernanke says: Oct 10, 2010 4:15 PM

    lol his addictions? 10 years ago? Seems to me the statute of limitations has run out there..

  15. Mike McCarthy's Moobs says: Oct 10, 2010 4:16 PM

    Gonna whore this Favre thing out for all it’s worth, eh?

  16. NFLwatcher says: Oct 10, 2010 4:24 PM

    So how should the Jets be penalized for the failure of controlling one of their players, they should lose a draft choice at least.

  17. Dr. Michael says: Oct 10, 2010 4:27 PM

    Wrangler jeans…Real.comfortable. cock picks.

  18. Hauschild says: Oct 10, 2010 4:44 PM

    Favre won’t miss any time, and I doubt he is even worried about this. There’s really no evidence, and none of this was taken thru the proper channels.
    Smacks of Richard Jewell all over again.

  19. robsterNY says: Oct 10, 2010 4:47 PM

    @ NFLwatcher….How should other NFL teams be penalized for the mis-conduct of thier players?I guess according to you ALOT of NFL teams will lose draft choices..*LOL*…stupid!

  20. DirtDawg55 says: Oct 10, 2010 4:50 PM

    Ah, they suspend him the same way they suspended Big Ben, who was also suspended, heavily, for a first offense without being charged, never mind convicted.
    And in this case there should likely be even more evidence. Cell phone records, voice mails, pictures – not just testimony, but physical evidence. If he escapes suspension it will be beyond me.

  21. TotalPack says: Oct 10, 2010 4:53 PM

    Just to refresh your memory rovibe, oh that’s right, you started being a Brett Favre fan last year. Regardless, he procured the extra drugs from teamates, not the doctor. Strike one!!

  22. vikes_favre says: Oct 10, 2010 4:55 PM

    If no Jet players were suspended/fined for their “cat walks” and lewd comments to a female reporter in their locker room….Favre better not either. Doing so would just prove bias.

  23. JJCheesehead says: Oct 10, 2010 4:57 PM

    there was no conduct policy in affect when he was struggling with addictions….
    i have read multiple stories saying alot of players have sent pictures of this nature to this individual. why is favre the one taking the fall here?

  24. Pervy xx says: Oct 10, 2010 5:11 PM

    FranklySpeaking says:Hey Pervy aka “I was all over the Ben thing yukking it up” — how’s it feel now to be the WHINER when it comes to the stink over your boy?
    ————————————————–
    LMAO! I’ll never cry like you Steeler nut huggers defended Ben….
    If Favre is guilty they can have him….Be careful what you wish for tools……TJack will chuck td’s to Moss all day…..

  25. frank booth says: Oct 10, 2010 5:12 PM

    Bert Favre is 41 today.
    Happy Birthday, Bert!
    Should be a fun birthday at the Favre household today.

  26. footballrulz says: Oct 10, 2010 5:50 PM

    Brett was going around bumming vicodin off of anyone he knew had a prescription for them. He asked for helpafter he was outed by teammates & Holmgren.
    Don;t bring that into this however. That was years ago and he took care of that–as far as we know ;)

  27. jrhsd says: Oct 10, 2010 5:57 PM

    where are the crocs?
    where is the watch?
    without photos there is no evidence. Those photos are fake or whatshername is guilty of libel with her previous story. It’s probably the only guy who would show her his package.

  28. R8R_BOB says: Oct 10, 2010 6:11 PM

    No way Favre gets suspended. The only way the league will suspend him if they knew with no doubt that he was returning for a 21st season. They will not perform a death sentence on Favre’s legacy if he is indeed retiring at the end of the season. I know people want Favre to go down but politics will prevent the NFL from throwing 2017 Hall of Famer Brett Favre under the bus.

    Actually… that’s not true. Favre did get illegal refills of Vicodin, Marriucci and his Trainer at the time said that he would score some from other players who didn’t finish their prescriptions. And those players (unknown) admitted to giving them to him. He also ONLY went into rehab because Deanna at the time said she’d leave him, even then he balked at the idea of entering rehab and claimed (before he left) he wasn’t an alcoholic…

  30. Mrsteve says: Oct 10, 2010 7:54 PM

    If he does it again then it’s a suspension. That would show the ongoing pattern.

    I lived in Appleton WI from 1992-1996….I personally witnessed with my own eyes one evening in one of the popular bars there…..Brett Favre, Mark Chmura, and Frank Winters….with an unknown body guard…..take several girls downstairs….some came up crying……when I asked the bartender what they were doing down there……he said “do I have to draw it on a piece of paper for you?” The guy was and continues to be a sleazebag…..the intelligent Packer fan along with the shareholders know this. Yes he was a big part of our success in the 90’s but that never excuses his treatment of women.
    And just for the record….the “crying” retirement press conference episode was a cover up for Ted Thompson getting fed up with his retirement drama and telling him…yeah you can come back….but you will have to compete for your job…that is when Brett asked to be traded….and Thompson obliged……..people need to get their facts straight. Thompson knew he had a head case and a good QB waiting in the wings…and took action….
    He is a jerk….plain and simple……and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the women he abused back in the 90’s started to come forward now….I saw this with my own eyes….other people can believe what they want to believe….but the truth will come out…just watch in the next couple of weeks…..

    NFLwatcher – lol, why should the jets organization be penalized anything? were the steelers penalized when rapistberger got caught sexually assaulting some young girl for a second time?
    vikes_favre – as for the jets thing, its a mens locker room, thats how men have spoken in their locker rooms since the dawn of time. its also border-line sexual harassment that there are women in the mens locker room, where men shower and dress, in the first place, you know if there were men reporters in a WNBA locker room, there would be issues. but nobody in the jets locker room texted that reporter naked pictures of themselves, which is what favre has done on multiple occasions to multiple women. its not bias when favre took it above and beyond what anybody else did. if they were equal acts, then maybe you can argue something like that. favre was much more inappropriate though.
