    The first words that popped into my head was, "What an idiot!"

      oh good grief. we all know brett is just going to end up settling with this woman as some cheap pr move, then wait until next season after the dust clears.  if he can play again, then he'll probably try to play for the vikings again. if not, then he'll just sign a one day contract with green bay to retire as a packer, then everyone will forget about this whole incident.  sorry, but that's just the truth.  unless this girl was a minor and he raped her, then it would be a different story.  or if the lawsuit was against an average joe like me or any other guy here, then it would be serious.  however, for brett favre?  a millionaire hall of fame football player?  i would have to say the worst he'll get is a public slap on the wrist.  sure, it may destroy his marriage and family life, but in the public's eyes, he'll be forgiven.

        The one day contract with the Packers could happen, but I don't think we'll see Favre play in the NFL again. For the past few seasons it was considered his choice, because he was still a valuable quarterback. Now even if he wants to come back, there's a question of what team would want him. He's old and his body is clearly breaking down. He's not capable of going out there and consistently throwing for 200-300 yards every game. It's not worth it to sign a quarterback if he's likely to get injured, and it seems that Favre is likely to get injured.

    It looks like they have a pretty good case against him and the Jets. He was inappropriate, and they were cut off from the organization after they made noise about the situation. This will get settled out of court, but I bet these girls will get a healthy sum of money out of this.

    He did something wrong in New York. That is why he was fined $50,000. He wasn't worried about the investigation. He made a mistake. That's all. I say, let him go on his way. This season with Minnesota was enough punishment for him. Farve is done. We were lucky to watch this legend with our own eyes. May he rest in peace. Truly, one of a kind!

    Did being traded to the Jets give Brett Favre a mental mid-life crisis that made him act like a horny teenager who just discovered texting on his first cell phone? I've never heard anything about him and any sex scandals when he was with Green Bay and I haven't heard anything like that with the Vikings either. But now he's got two of these scandals going on and both of them happened while he was with the Jets... please he only played with them for 1 season.

    I just wish he'd shave off that nasty unattractive grizzle he's got growing all over his face. It looks like fungus and it makes me want to scratch every time I see it.  YUK!

      It's more likely that this sort of thing happens, but you just don't hear about it most of the time. Once a scandal erupts and people start sniffing around, the dirty laundry comes out.

    What I am wondering is how Favre magically obtained Jenn Sterger's phone number and took then allegedly took it upon himself, without provocation from her, to send her racy text messages and pictures of his "junk". Does that sound realistic? Then she comes out about the incident two years after it happened during the same week when the Vikes were to play the Jets in what was, at the time, one of the most anticipated and highest rated Monday night games since ESPN took over Monday night Football. That to me seems like it's pretty opportunistic for her.

    This most recent news is just as skewed to me. Favre magically obtains the phone numbers of the massage therapists and sends them racy messages without provocation at all. They also come out more than two years later and did not complain about anything at the time, nor did they complain when they were not retained with the Jets (until now). People will do anything for money (and in Sterger's case, publicity.)

    Don't get me wrong, I think that what Favre is reported to have done in these incidents, as a married man, is despicable especially because his wife was going through cancer around that time.  However, these women are clearly out for notoriety and money and had no problem at the time with Favre's advances.

    The Jets don't even want to say nothing. Something is up. Will anything ever happen? I doubt it.
