FINALLY, it’s all boiled down to this…
The NFL has fined Brett Favre $50,000 for a “failure to cooperate” with the investigation into allegations he sent inappropriate messages and lewd photos to a former New York Jets game-day hostess.
The league says Commissioner Roger Goodell “could not conclude” that Favre violated the league’s personal conduct policy based on the evidence currently available.
The league’s statement also says Goodell determined Favre was “not candid in several respects during the investigation resulting in a longer review and additional negative public attention for Favre, (Jenn) Sterger and the NFL.” The league’s investigation began in October and the fine was announced Wednesday.
It SOUNDS good but in our opinion this is all a big show. The NFL wasn’t going to sully the name of their beloved quarterback in his swan season. We think the 50k fine is just so Sterger will be satisfied, and the whole thing can go away.
