Report: NFL to Punish Brett Favre Over Sexting

12/29/2010 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brett Favre will finally have to pay for allegedly texting photos of his dong knob to former NY Jets employee Jen Sterger -- the NFL has reportedly decided to fine the legendary QB over the scandal.

There was speculation Favre could face a suspension -- but early this morning, FOX Sports reporter Jay Glazer twittered, "Commish is expected to fine Brett Favre today, tomorrow the latest, but NOT suspend Favre."

As we previously reported, the NFL had launched an investigation to see if Favre had violated the league's personal conduct policy during his correspondence with Sterger.

It would have been stupid to suspend him for something that happened outside the game that was *not* illegal. A fine is exactly what they should impose, for doing something unethical.
I'm sure the wh*re will say this is not satisfactory though, and will try to sue like an idiot. Rachel Uchitel, Jr. - you're doing it wrong.

This is just sad. This man went from being one of the most respected quarterbacks ever to the laughing stock of America. He had fans. He had respect, and he had a record that was amazing. I hope he serves as a message to other players out there who are considered great and who are so likeable. If you say you're going to retire, stay retired! You don't need to keep playing and destroy your reputation with your own stupidity.

Haha, @the Michael Vick comment: Michael Vick is the man. It really sucks to be you since Vick is going to win MVP in the NFL this year, not to mention he's a starter in the pro bowl assuming he doesn't win the Super Bowl.
Hater or not: Michael Vick is doing more with his life than you ever will :-D

you would be praising charles manson if he was good at throwing a football.sad really.

i dont think they should even fine him..now had she filed a police report after it happend and notified the jets ownership and what not yes id say penalize him.but 2 years later she brings it up.she obviously liked it.btw i wonder what she sent him to egg it on.im sure she isnt innocent in this situation.of course he probably has no emails from her for he probably deleted them to keep his wife from finding them.and of course she will not show the stuff she sent him.

Thats the NFL, sucking ever last dime they can get. Farve is retiring after only one more game.

To Post #17 Tom G - I agree with you. I have never been a Vick fan, but dog killer or not, he is probably the best QB out today. Got to give him his props for his skills. Don't care for his team, my 49'ers suck, but I don't think they are going to the Super Bowl.

Oh, and Bret Farve's an ass.

Now lets see if the white trailer trash was telling the truth. The NFL will discipline Brett and she said she wouldn't sue if they did that.

Betcha a boatload of cash she still sues.

She should have sued him. The NFL doens't care. Bert is done for the season and most likely for his career, so big deal.

Isn't showing the entire world his tiny ding-a-ling punishment enough?

The thing is... it was more than one text and she must have gone along with it, for him to ask her to do her thang. so where are her texts to him? She set him up, and she did him, without laying a hand on any part of his anatomy. Virtually screwed is still screwed, just not as enjoyable as he was hoping for.
According to a judge in Canada you can't punish criminals if you embarass them on the Internet. I can see a lot of celebs using that defence in the future.

Is he going to pay by the INCH?? If so it will be a small penalty probably a lot less than settling with her since she said if the NFL did not punish him she would sue!
