Report: Goodell-Sterger meeting became “heated”

Bears Vikings Football

We reported on Saturday that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met personally with former Jets in-house sideline reporter Jenn Sterger last week.

Michael O’Keeffe of the New York Daily News confirms that the meeting occurred, and he reports that the session “became heated at times.”

It’s not surprising that it became heated, given the perception by Sterger’s representatives that no action will be taken against Favre.  Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, and her lawyer, Joe Conway, believe that Sterger’s name can be cleared only with a finding that Favre in some way violated the league’s Personal Conduct Policy via his interactions with Sterger.

Part of the problem, in our view, is that the Sterger camp at times confuses “wrongdoing” with sexual harassment.  If Favre, a married man, pursued Sterger for a romantic relationship by, among other things, sending photos of a sensitive part of his anatomy via text message, he engaged in something that most reasonable persons would describe as wrongdoing.  But whether it amounted to sexual harassment is a more complicated proposition, depending in large part on Sterger’s reaction to the alleged advances.

O’Keeffe also confirms that Goodell met with Favre on Monday, before the Vikings “hosted” the Bears at TCF Bank Stadium.  Favre said after the game that he met with Goodell, but Favre danced around the subject of whether the meeting entailed the Sterger case.

“You know, I saw him briefly for I would say five or 10 minutes,” Favre said, via the press conference televised by ESPN.  “It was a very brief conversation, so I wouldn’t think — I wouldn’t call that an investigation or anything.”

On Sunday, Goodell told NBC’s Bob Costas that the Commissioner expects to make a decision regarding the case before the season is over.

“We’ve been very serious, we’ve been very thoughtful, we’ve been very thorough and we’re going to continue to do that,” Goodell told Costas.  “We take this issue very seriously and I want to make the right decision.”

We’ve got a feeling that the decision could come as soon as tomorrow or Thursday.  For the purposes of letting the news disappear into a long Christmas weekend, late Thursday afternoon would be ideal.  The fact that the NFL is playing a game on Thursday night makes us think that it makes some sense to put it out there late Wednesday, so that the league can then take its lumps on Thursday morning and then focus on the Thursday night game between the Panthers and Steelers.

Then again, since not many people will be paying attention to the Panthers-Steelers game, Thursday afternoon may indeed be the best way to go.

Either way, a suspension undoubtedly won’t happen.  Favre has appeal rights that could not be exhausted before Week 17, in part because he has the right to wait 10 days to challenge a suspension.

Though he possibly won’t be playing in either of the Vikings’ final two games, the fact that he makes nearly $1 million per week makes a one-game suspension a very expensive penalty.

    If a suspension doesn’t happen then it merely proves Sterger’s point – the league is too scared of Favre to punish him.

  2. tobyv29 says: Dec 21, 2010 7:04 PM

    She’s just looking for money. That’s why her slimey lawyers want a negative finding by the league.

  3. jetscheat says: Dec 21, 2010 7:06 PM

    If Sterger really had a problem with the texts and pics, don’t you think we would have heard about it before now?? Now it is Sterger trying to save face so she can parley it into a money making opportunity.

  4. iamalwayscorrect says: Dec 21, 2010 7:09 PM

    Sterger should concentrate on becoming a good cook, and finding a decent man that she can bake for, provide a clean home , and be a good mother to his children.

    Women who can do that get the man, the power, the status, the lifestyle and the entitlement to 50% if they wish to excersise.
    Women who act like Sterger get played, used, made fun of, ridiculed, and dumped when wifey says so. Fun to ride but certainly not a gal you will replace your wife for.

  5. goldsteel says: Dec 21, 2010 7:14 PM

    Goodell is playing for time. He knows Farve’s season and career will be over in two weeks. He’s hoping the issue will afterwards disappear into obscurity as Farve is without a team or a league.

  6. jackdiesel says: Dec 21, 2010 7:17 PM

    Favre’s a sleaze but didn’t do anything wrong.

  8. hooterdawg says: Dec 21, 2010 7:24 PM

    It’s not surprising that a meeting would get heated if Goodell has evidence that Sterger reciprocated Farve’s attention. There is already strong evidence that she is just another golddigger.

  10. stetai says: Dec 21, 2010 7:30 PM

    Thank you for being the first media source to reference an important aspect to this case. If this indeed was Brett sending those pictures, I can’t imagine he would’ve sent those unless he was making some headway in courtin her.

    If a girl ignores several of my calls and emails, I wouldn’t just send her a picture of my junk as a Hail Mary. If those pics were his, I have to think he had a realistic expectation that based on interaction with the girl, that she would’ve been accepting of that sort of stuff.

    If this was Brett I have a feeling this was somewhat mutual but Sterger’s people know Brett is the last guy that’s going to admit to an affair if he doesn’t have to.

  11. ratbastardshanahandjob says: Dec 21, 2010 7:37 PM

    Please Ms Sterger. Take a cue from Iron Mike Tyson. Please “fade into Bolivian”…..

    Leave it to a GD Monkees fan to make such an idiotic statement.

  14. cliverush says: Dec 21, 2010 7:57 PM

    the question needs to be asked, Where did Favre get her phone number from? Did the Jet’s front office facilitate the hook-up? Ole’ Britt sounded as though he expected some pre arranged action. Is Tannenbaum involved as a go between? Is Goddell protecting the RATS as he has continued to in the recent events of a RAT coach trying to injure a player from another team. No problem says the former RATS employee, I’ll take care of everything. We’ll just blame the Patriots.

    Wonder how many times the word “extortion” was used in that meeting?

  17. rrrobertson says: Dec 21, 2010 8:10 PM

    I agree with almost everyone who is posting here:
    whether he did or didn’t send the alleged txts, obviously something had transpired between these two to facilitate it. yes, it is a wrong-doing, but this is quite different from a dangerous or threatening act of sexual harassment.
    now she’s after the $$$ Brett!

  18. tecmobowl34 says: Dec 21, 2010 8:23 PM

    gotta love all the mouth-breathers on here acting like they wouldn’t have tried to expolit Favre for money if they had the same evidence.

    it wouldn’t have taken you two years like Sterger, it would have taken you two minutes

  19. packfannchitown says: Dec 21, 2010 8:28 PM

    The evidence has been gathered yet Gooddell still won’t reach a decision. The man is clearly stalling for some reason, most likely so the NFL poster-child won’t suffer too much more embarrassment.

    I bet the final report will gloss over whether or not Favre actually sent the pics or not.

  20. skurdzzz says: Dec 21, 2010 8:29 PM

    “heated”, or “passionate”? i wouldn’t be surprised if she launches a harrassment suit against goodell next. hes got money too.

    “But whether it amounted to sexual harassment is a more complicated proposition, depending in large part on Sterger’s reaction to the alleged advances.”

    Sterger could kick Goodell’s a$$.

    I can’t wait til Goodell gets booed off the stage at the draft. That is, if he’s man enough to show up.

  23. johnnyballsack says: Dec 21, 2010 8:43 PM

    I gotta admit, I would love to be in a “heated meeting” with Jenn Sterger.

    Anyone else picturing that scene in “Casino” with Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone? “I’ve known the guy for 30 years and I’m supposed to whack him for you?!!!!?” all the while Stone screams like a maniac.

    Yeah, me too…

  25. blackheld says: Dec 21, 2010 8:57 PM

    If the league sanctions Favre over this, then Sterger’s court case is full speed ahead, both against Favre and also the Jets.

    Obviously, that’s what she and her lawyers want to happen…because if the league finds Favre indeed committed harassment, then a lawsuit is a slam dunk.

    Sadly, her girlfriend Allison’s interview, in which she said Sterger wasn’t at all upset about the texting, sank Sterger and her lawyers completely, and it appears the league has no interest in bailing her out.

    Favre might have done everything she says, but she sure didn’t appear to mind much, and the Jets will get away free and clear, too.

  26. importantpftcomment says: Dec 21, 2010 9:10 PM

    @monkeesfan
    Gotta have a reason to punish Favre, can’t just do it cause a gold digger wants money. What he did is morally wrong, but that is bout it!

    @cliverush

    Favre got the gold diggers number from a mutual friend.

    ______________________________

    Favre haters seem to forget a few little facts that get in the way of Favre being suspended or fined.

    1) We as the public don’t know if Sterger ever said no or not.
    2) We don’t know if she ever encouraged his texts or pictures
    3) We don’t know if she ever actually went to his room or not.

    Without knowing that information, not one of us can say if he is guilty or not of any wrongdoing. The information we do have that is absolute fact is that she has used her lawyer and manager in an attempt to intimidate both Favre and the league itself. My opinion is that if she had any case whatsoever, she wouldn’t need to intimidate anyone.

  27. packercpa says: Dec 21, 2010 9:42 PM

    If it is all cut and dry like many of you think, why hasn’t Goodell just said that Favre is innocent and leave it at that. There must be some question as to why Goodell can’t make his decision. To me it doesn’t matter whether this is sexual harrassment or not. Favre violated the player conduct policy and should somehow be punished. If the Commissioner believes that Favre did not violate that policy, say so and be done. Let the parties fight it in court over whether or not there was sexual harrassment. This issue should have been settled long ago.

  28. 4sacroc says: Dec 21, 2010 9:42 PM

    Charles Barkley said of Favre’s behavior:

    “That’s turbull…just turbull…”

    Thanks, you load.

  29. myspaceyourface says: Dec 21, 2010 9:43 PM

    Don’t you have to say “no” or “stop” if you don’t want someone’s advances. . . .

    No harassment = No case

  30. cuzer says: Dec 21, 2010 9:58 PM

    You are all idiots. The question is did Pervre do something against the NFL code of conduct and that is not dependent upon whether or not she is after $ or how long it took to report it. It happens all the time that a “nobody” does not report wrongdoing by someone “important” right away because they fear reprisal. You think if she had reported the photo the next morning that the Jets or the league would have suspended Favre? Not a chance, she would have been fired on the spot. And I am not excusing her or taking her side.

    If there were nothing to the allegation this “investigation” would have taken 15 minutes and the league would have made the announcement. Bottom line, the NFL doesn’t want a “HOFer” to finish his career embarrased.

  31. halftermguv says: Dec 21, 2010 10:03 PM

    Goodell is clearly running out the clock on behalf of Favre. One has to wonder with all the knee jerk responses to hits by the defense why it has taken so long on this.

    That being said Favre is guilty of being a jerk and that’s all. If Sterger was truly disgusted with the behavior then it should have been reported a lot sooner than 1 1/2 to 2 years.

  32. Lisa (VikesPrincess) says: Dec 21, 2010 10:05 PM

    @iamalwayscorrect

    You said, in all of your extremely misogynistic manner:

    “Sterger should concentrate on becoming a good cook, and finding a decent man that she can bake for, provide a clean home , and be a good mother to his children.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I wasn’t aware that the internet as we know it today existed back in 1950! How exciting for you to be able to time travel.

    You may now take your ignorant self back to 1950 and enjoy your days when women needed men to support them and validate their existence.

    You’ll be surprised to know that in 2010, more women have college degrees than their male counterparts and many colleges have now had to significantly lower their admission standards for males in order to keep some semblance of gender parity at the collegiate level. Why that should matter, I’m not sure. I like meritocracies where the best person wins. Which in today’s world are women.

    I do wish you all the best in your antiquated decade.

    PS – you can take Fin72 back with you.

    On this Sterger matter, I think it is quite obvious that she encouraged the attention thereby removing any aspect of a hostile work environment. Also – quit calling her a reporter. She was a sideline hostess and if you watched 2 minutes of her stupid show you’d note that she has about 3 functioning brain cells. Which explains why she’s now trying to make money off someone else’s accomplishments: she knows she hasn’t the talent to do it herself.

  33. raidergreg2000 says: Dec 21, 2010 10:19 PM

    I would tear her up if I was Favre

  34. FinFan68 says: Dec 21, 2010 11:05 PM

    @Lisa:
    It would seem you took offense to two things based on your post
    1) you seem to be offended by the suggestion of a lifestyle that many women seek. At no point did @iamalwayscorrect say that men were better than women (although, based on your claims, you certainly believe there is a superior sex)

    2) you seem to be offended that Ms. Sterger has been able to exploit her body rather than her brain in order to make a living for herself

    While I think your point about Sterger removing the hostile workplace element, your accusation of mysogyny pales to your overt example of misandry. I am not defending what he said, but your comments are hypocritical…NOW would be proud.

  35. FinFan68 says: Dec 21, 2010 11:08 PM

    my above post should read: While I think your point about Sterger removing the hostile workplace element is correct,…

  36. mithrilsoul says: Dec 21, 2010 11:12 PM

    In response to: “One has to wonder with all the knee jerk responses to hits by the defense why it has taken so long on this.”

    I think the reason is partially because the STERGER camp has dragged their feet for so long. When the story first broke, Sterger & her lawyers really had no interest in talking to the NFL. They kept delaying and delaying meeting with the NFL. Why? The presumption is, they were hoping that simply by floating charges out in the media, they would scare Favre into an out-of-court $ettlement, probably for a large 6-figure or even 7-figure amount. They likely figured with Favre wanting to protect his HoF reputation, he would capitulate just to make everything “go away.”

    But then something happened no one in the Sterger camp expected: Favre refused to pay a dime. Now suddenly the plans for a big payday disappeared. Only *then* did Sterger suddenly change her tune and want to meet with the NFL.

    If she had met with the NFL at the very beginning when the league wanted to meet with her, then we wouldn’t be having this discussion right now. But it was her refusal to do so that has ended up dragging this thing out for so long.

  37. scoob766 says: Dec 21, 2010 11:12 PM

    Why is this girl a gold digger, when Favre is sending pictures of his weeny (or lack of as people on this site have stated, I haven’t seen pics)? He should be suspended, she didn’t ask for the pics he forced it. As far as I am concerned Brett Favre and Big Ben are nearly even.

    I am bias though, I hate Big Ben and hate Favre. I have loved watching the old man get his ass knocked out. Guess those years of pain killers wore off. Most overrated player in history.

  38. gall34 says: Dec 21, 2010 11:17 PM

    No mystery here. Her girlfriend said Jenn had a collection of similar photos. Sal Alosi probably suggested she arrange them in sequence by schedule. Hence, the headlines the week the Vikings came to town.

  40. banlarson says: Dec 21, 2010 11:23 PM

    Interesting how it took her 2 years to come forward. The trauma from that alleged text must have been devastating. She somehow managed the courage a week before the Vikings played against the New York Jets, knowing how difficult it would be with the spotlight on her.

    I’ll tell you shy sterger and her lawyers are so hot for the league to punish Farve… if the league punishes him then the league is admiting that farve did something more serious then just having romantic intentions. That’s what sterger wants so that when she takes them to court she can point to the league and say they even thought that what farve did was wrong. More bucks for her pocket.

  46. theytukrjobs says: Dec 22, 2010 12:10 AM

    If Goodell suspends him it shows that one guy, with complicated interests in the matter, saw the evidence a certain way. But his decision has to be taken with a grain of salt since he serves the interests of the NFL as another part of his job.

    Favre isn’t the reason that her name needs clearing to begin with. Her name is trashed because she kept photos of his junk for years and then released them to the internet with her name attached to them and along for the ride.

  48. nickster2k says: Dec 22, 2010 12:56 AM

    Goodell suspended Roethlisberger for 6 games for “violating the personal conduct policy” after he was falsely accused of rape. There was evidence that he committed no wrongdoing, however he was still suspended.

    Favre should have been suspended the day after they validated that those texts came from his phone.

    Of course, this would probably cause a much bigger issue for the NFL as they would pretty much be admitting that one of their employees sexually harassed another employee. They can’t very well implicate themselves in a potential lawsuit, can they?

    So much for fairness. Typical Goodell.

    At least he can consult his right hand buffoon Madden on what to do with difficult decisions like this. I am sure that hire is panning out very well for him.

  49. dumbaseinstien says: Dec 22, 2010 2:04 AM

    She wants the league to do what she knows a court can’t….find him liable. He has invited a law suit from her which she & her lawyers still have not filed. WHY??? Seems obvious, he most likely has some incriminating evidence that implicates her also but is unable to reveal it too the media becuase it would be an admission of his own activities…which puts him in a tough place. He knows they won’t sue (for fear of full disclosure) & she knows he & the NFL don’t want it being discussed in the media so she is dragging him through the mud trying to get some sort of a settlement she is undeserving of. Slut, whore, gold digger…in my opinion.

  50. nicedome says: Dec 22, 2010 2:09 AM

    Thank you, now now sit here(patting his lap)
    First let me state that I am all for a woman obtaining higher education. A woman that makes her claim to fame by acting like a bimbo and flaunting her very well built body does a disservice to all women.
    Now if you want to go to school and get a degree that is fine with me. I will support you 100%.
    There is absolutely no reason at all why you shouldn’t be able to have a career. In fact I encourage you. After you tend my children and get them off to school, and after you tend to the housework I see no problem with you tending to your career before you need to get back home and prepare dinner for your man and children, and then tending to your man after you get the kids to bed.

  54. stellarperformance says: Dec 22, 2010 7:30 AM

    All I want for Christmas is for the truth about the kind of man Favre is to become a matter of public record. I don’t care if he’s fined or suspended and I don’t care if he broke any laws or rules. I don’t care if Sterger deserves compensation or if she is a golddigger. The guy sent unsolicited and inappropriate material and if he said he didn’t he’s lying. He’s always behaved as though he was above it all and his sense of entitlement is a joke. The NFL is reluctant to do anything because he is their Golden Calf. If he won’t go away on his own then maybe the truth will force him to once and for all. In the meantime, I don’t wish for any player to get injured on the field of play, but if it happens to him I sure as hell don’t lose any sleep over it.

    I find it hilarious when idiots compare this to the Roethlisburger situation. It would be similar if Big Ben had talked and texted the chick for weeks and never boned her drunk ass, and many others, in a sleezy club while all his buddies assisted in destroying evidence. It would be similar if then DTF chick waited 2 years before deciding she had a problem with it.

    It is similar in the sense that a chick is using her vagina powers to bring down a star. But Favre was never accused of rape. Favre sent messages. Roethlisburger and his entourage were creating an environment to produce drunk loose girls for Big Ben to bone.

    It’s just not the same.

    I don’t know any women who seek a man for prestige or to obtain a “lifestyle”. I don’t think women are the “superior sex”. It’s a fact that women, as a group, are now more educated than men and the item about colleges relaxing admission standards for males because they cannot compete with females at the high school & college levels is a fact. Google it. Just because I report out factual information about gender & education doesn’t mean I hate men. I actually think it’s distressing that boys & young men aren’t focusing on academics. It doesn’t bode well for society. I’m never in favor of dumbing down our population.

    Again, reporting factual information about things I don’t control is not misandry and neither is it hypocritical. It’s called reading. I do a lot of it. And I don’t belong to NOW. I speak for myself. I don’t need anyone, including an organized group, to do it for me.

    Favre shouldn’t even be fined for his actions. While I think he was morally wrong, as a married man, to pursue Sterger, she was equally wrong for responding – which I believe is the result of the “investigation”. She doesn’t have a leg to stand on and hopefully that’s what the NFL will conclude as well. May she learn a lesson about how to comport herself from this.

    @iamalwayscorrect

    You said “Now if you want to go to school and get a degree that is fine with me. I will support you 100%.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I already have my degree, thanks.

    You continued with “There is absolutely no reason at all why you shouldn’t be able to have a career. In fact I encourage you. After you tend my children and get them off to school, and after you tend to the housework I see no problem with you tending to your career before you need to get back home and prepare dinner for your man and children, and then tending to your man after you get the kids to bed.
    Now that thats cleared up, come on girl, come take care of daddy(smacks that a$$)”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I feel sorry for any woman that has the misfortune of being associated with you.

    I’d like to assume that you’re attempting to anger me with this drivel, but in all likelihood, you probably believe it.

    Here’s a hint: the only people that can truly bother me are people I respect. You’re not one of those, so you can keep on typing and I will continue to pity the women in your life, but what you say will still be irrelevant.

    @Lisa,
    The only reason women get more college degrees is the ridiculous laws (like title 9). We have altered our public education system in ways that benefit girls over boys. I think you will see school districts everywhere throw laws like title 9 and affirmative action out the window. Women and minorities have had their chance to catch up. Some have taken it and some haven’t and that is their choice. That said someone should buy you a copy of “Get in the Kitchen Bitches.” Oh yeah Jen Sterger is a gold digger who has been used more times than an AK 47 in Asia.

    You said, “The only reason women get more college degrees is the ridiculous laws (like title 9). ”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is laughable. Giving girls equal access to sports somehow prevents boys from succeeding? This kind of logic is what is preventing boys and young men from achieving what girls and young women have been able to do.

    You continued with “We have altered our public education system in ways that benefit girls over boys.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is completely false. Equal access doesn’t benefit girls over boys. It puts them on a level playing field. If you can’t compete, you can’t compete. And something tells me you can’t.

    You then stated “That said someone should buy you a copy of ‘Get in the Kitchen Bitches.'”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Assuming you have a job that both meets your bills and allows you some extra cash and assuming you actually know where to find books, why don’t you send me a copy?

    Men have on average an IQ 3 – 5 points higher than women. In addition to this, they are much more highly represented at the extremes. This means there are more extremely stupid AND extremely intelligent men than women.

    Women getting more degrees doesn’t necessarily mean they are smarter or accomplish more. Much of this is the result of many years of our education system and movements pushing for more women in the acedemic world. “Leveling the playing field” so to speak.

    As a white male, I just hope that once minorities and women are comfortably ahead of us that we can take away all of the assists, or even bias it the other way, lol.

    Plus men work all of the construction jobs and stuff and those don’t take degrees. There aren’t many female jobs that don’t need a degree nowadays. That is the biggest factor.

    despite my post I have to give you props. Anytime someone gets down in the trenches to fight for what they believe in it has to be saluted. You go girl.

    she is not hot. and she has a bad attitude.

  64. supergoonone says: Dec 23, 2010 2:01 AM

    Someone in jets office gave away her number. That is the only thing I’ll defend her on. Even that is iffy because I think all NFL team hand out work phones, so “giving away her number” could be simply looking it up in the JETS database.

    @packercpa

    Favre is innocent, thats why goodell has not done anything. He probably has been cleared and they are waiting for the season to end to say so.

    “…. she kept photos of his junk for years and then released them to the internet with her name attached to them and (went) along for the ride.”

    Yeah, I guess she won some sort of electronic media pop-culture celebrity poor-judgment lottery or something. That’s OK. Sometimes fish jump out of the water and land in your lap.
