NFL Fines Brett Favre

$50,000 in Sexting Scandal

12/29/2010 4:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The NFL has fined Brett Favre $50,000 for "failing to cooperate" with the league's investigation into his sexting scandal involving former NY Jets employee Jenn Sterger.

Brett Favre Fined for Sexting
The league noted Commish Roger Goodell "could not conclude" if Favre violated the league's personal conduct policy based on the evidence he had seen.

The NFL released a statement saying, "The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger."

The league continued, "The review found no evidence to contradict the statements of both Favre and Sterger that they never met in person, nor was there anything to suggest that Sterger engaged in any inappropriate conduct."

The NFL claims it also looked into reports that Favre put the moves on two massage therapists who worked at the Jets' facility in 2008 -- but the investigation hit a dead end because people with "potentially relevant information" refused to cooperate with investigators.

to Squeeky Shoes:

you are a moron. - She does have a job, working for the Jets @ the same time Favre was sending her unwanted pictures of his wang, or did you miss that part? as well, you say this is all hearsay unless there is proof - what do you call the txt's and pictures sent to her, from Favre's phone? - or do you think he dialed the wrong number? Learn to read, then process those words in your head, before you make retarded comments on subjects you know very little about. MORON

Disappointed in Brett    

If Brett did no wrong, then why wouldn't he cooperate with the investigation? I personally like Brett and wonder why it took two years for the information to come out. However, he did do something and if I were his wife, he'd be paying me child support and alimony for a good while!

Detroit mayor Kilpatrick is now doing time in prison and the only evidence used to convict him was text messages. Goodell was acting in bad faith as he assured MS. Stenger and her lawyer that their complaint would be taken seriously. Women are often not given the benefit of a doubt and they rarely get the justice that they deserve. It's a man's world because women have accepted obedience and rarely get any help from their gender. A boycott of the NFL by women wouldn't even get their attention.

Why would Sterger wait two years to come forward against Brett Favre, the Jet's superstar quarterback at the time? That's simple, and it's the very same reason that the other women have refused to get involved. They fear for their job there as they often do in most places that are ruled by men. Sterger's timing was perfect because it was just before the Jets would have to contend with the Vikings and Farve who was now the Vikings quarterback. The Jets could be forgiving if it gave the Vikings just enough distraction to lose the game. The Jets beat the Vikings in that game 29-20. Goodell's lame ruling just re-enforces why women need to beware of confronting their superiors in the NFL.

A humorous take on penisgate: http://www.ticketsolutions.com/blogs/intentional-foul/nfl/brett-favre-fined/

This is about as bizarre as the fine-happy NFL has been all season long. While the NFL can't really prove anything, and it would seem that Jenn Sterger really wanted no parts of this mess (though I'm sure her website is reaping rewards from the publicity) - the bigger point here is that the NFL fined Favre in exchange of protecting him from any evidence they've uncovered by hitting him with the fine 1 day after the statute of limitations expired for a sexual harassment case in New Jersey.

Coincidence? I think not - and the article makes that point abundantly clear.
