Sterger, massage therapists drag their feet in Favre investigation

Several of the Sunday pregame shows included reports that former Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger has refused to cooperate with the NFL’s investigation regarding Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.  More accurately, we’ve learned that she has neither said “yes” nor “no.”

Ditto for the massage therapists whose contact information the Jets reportedly provided to the league.  The league has tried to interview them, but they have not yet cooperated.  They also have not said they they will not be cooperating.

As a result, the league decided to move forward with an interview of Favre.  Ideally, the league would have deferred the interview of Favre until after the women who allegedly received unwanted advances from the veteran quarterback had been interviewed.

The NFL has no way to force them to cooperate, since the women have no current employment relationship with the league and since the situation is not the subject of a pending legal action for which subpoenas could be issued.  So if they ultimately choose not to cooperate, the NFL will not be able to discipline Favre — unless he makes admissions during his upcoming interview that constitute evidence of a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.

    I would drag my feet too if I was being called out on a blatant lie!

    If they tell the truth to the NFL investigators they get a nice “warm and fuzzy”. If they negotiate a settlement with Favre’s people they a pile of money for keeping their mouth shut. It’s tough decision time.

    Wow, Favre had to pay off 3 women…..and still hasn’t managed to save his reputation.

    This story is going about as far as most of Peterson’s runs today, nowhere.

    tell me if this is such a big deal why isn’t anyone talking as soon as they get a chance? Makes ZERO sense. if it was really sexual harrasement and felt violated or whatever they would speak up and against favre. ha the old man pry banged em all, consensually. That means willingly for some of u. and ‘not rape’ for the rest. I’m not saying cheating on your wife is a good thing, but if he did, its his choice and i’m not gonna sit and bitch about how much of a low life he is like sum of you. get over it. if you had women wanting you (if thats the case) or flirting whatever have you. you might give in too once and awhile. Oh hey by the way Vikes won bitches!wasn’t pretty but i’ll take it.

    Why do stories like this show up when we could be reading about current events, like the games being played today? Can’t you save this type of “news” until Tuesdays?

  11. Champs says: Oct 17, 2010 7:41 PM

    So for the purpose of investigating a player, Jets employees are obligated to cooperate with the NFL because it’s a “singular entity” or what?

  12. tnsteve says: Oct 17, 2010 7:50 PM

    Can’t he take the 5th? And if he does, can the NFL do anything otherwise? All he has to say is that he is happy to respond to any direct charges and otherwise has no comment. If the women don’t file a complaint, case closed. He’d be stupid to offer up anything that can then be disputed by someone.

    Look at the cooperation Tiger got when he paid off his friends! I hope they nail his ass big time!

    Brett Favre may end up setting an NFL record for all time; the previously-thought “impossible” Payoff Tri-fecta!
    Never has any athlete paid off three “victims” simultaneously. Proud moment for the entire Favre family, no doubt. Ben Roethlisberger will draw inspiration from the old geezer.
    Still, even if all three take his money, Favre still wil be held accountable for those photos and voicemails. That horse has already left the barn.
    Actually, I believe the right metaphor should be “pony”.

    The NFL is wasting their time. No girls = no case
    I hope Goodell isn’t expecting Favre to walk in and admit “yep, it was me”
    Like Alonzo told Hoyt, “it’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove”

  19. funi says: Oct 17, 2010 8:43 PM

    SHE SAID NO JET FANS!Suspend this man 8 games as you have no evidence! This is the NFL policy!If Sterger does nto co-operate, Versus needs to fire her ass!

  20. Stella says: Oct 17, 2010 9:34 PM

    All Favre has to do is pull his pants down ???
    Why are you the only one keeping this story alive?

  21. oxycode30 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:49 PM

    Watch for the floodgates to open now… rumor is Favre has at least as many girlfriends as Tiger did… and they’ll be looking for that Xmas ca$h now for sure.

    Anything to get a buck I guess. Sterger saves these pics and messages and sells them to Deadspin through a third party. Then she possibly is either feeling guilt or being paid to shut up. Or perhaps her manager is telling her that this publicity is sinking her career.
    Any way you slice it, she’s not the most compassionate gal you’d run across. Keeping that stuff in the first place is not something a nice person does. Selling it is ruthless.
    Favre will come after her after this season is over. I’m not sure if he has any moves to play, but if he has had to pay her then most definately this will “leak” out after this year when he no longer is liable for anything. If she texted or called him and he has records, that will also come out. She’s said on record that she never called him and that he was just pursuing from his side only. I find this unlikely personally because that isn’t how things usually work.
    Neither one of them is going to come out smelling like a rose. Sterger may one day wish she had just deleted those things and/or replied with a “don’t ever contact me in any way you creep” like a normal human being would.
    Suzie would have never done something like this. WTF Jen? You get to be in the NFL and then go backstab a player? Ruthless woman.

    —————————————–
    You seem to KNOW Favre did this. Is it possible you are this familiar with Favre’s johnson? Outside of that, I can’t figure out how one could possibly know. Then again, you may just be someone who hates Favre or the Vikings and are just reacting emotionally.
    BigBear123 – awesome!!

    I would like to subit to the league a list of massage therapists, slutty sideline reporters and cheerleaders who used to work for the Broncos and who may or may not have been harrassed by Jay Cutler while he was there. One of te even claims to have some naughty text messages from Cutler that she is willing to sell for the right price. I’m sure all of those women will be honest and forthright in any investigation regardless of the huge amount of fame and fortune they would gain by making up allegations that cannot be proved or disproved.
    Anyone else see the problem here?

    They haven’t made up their minds yet because they are waiting to see if they will get paid to be silent.
