Deadspin Releases Favre “Scandal”

I have to be honest, I’m not sure how to proceed with this one or if I even really want to.

There are a few reasons for that:

  1. I’d much prefer to be talking about football instead of going all “tabloid” on you.
  2. I’m not familiar with how Deadspin.com does business, and thus don’t know how credible this story is.
  3. The original story over at Deadspin.com contains some language that I refuse to link to (google it yourself).

Essentially, however, Deadspin.com is alleging that they are about to obtain some proof that Brett Favre perhaps should have been listed on the Jets injury report for having a “wandering eye” in his time with the team.

In other words, Favre may become the latest version of Tiger Woods.

This all comes down to whether or not Jenn Sterger proves to be a reliable source that follows through for Deadspin.  She is currently working for the TV show “Inside The Lines”, and has previously worked for the Jets, Sports Illustrated, and even wrote for NFLGridironGab at one point.

It was during her time with the Jets that Sterger claims Favre made unsolicited advances on her using his cell phone to send explicit pictures to her.

The article (should you choose to pursue it) has much more (gross) detail.

For now, however, I’m going to get back to football.

    Let me just say this. I’ve never before owned a pair of Crocs but I am strongly considering buying a pair now.

    Definately more details than I wanted to hear. I hope this story turns out to be false. Some of the guys in the locker room might be a bit uncomfortable.

    Favre! When you are making a video of yourself beatin’ the bishop, you wear comfy slippers, not Crocs.

    Must be a southern thing. SOOO backwards. It’s like a different country.

      Tombs good to see ya. I figured it would take a story like this to bring ya back.

        I’m no expert in the field, but I’ve dabbled in it enough to make comment regarding appropriate footwear.

        WAAAYYY back in Coach’s day, I bet he was forced to wear Roman sandals. Probably not much in the way of options.

        Then again, geography probably plays a role…Adam likely has to wear mukluks. It’s cold up there.

        Damn I miss your sense of humor Tomb.

    Ah, another example of the stunning journalism over at deadspin. So we’ve got an uncredited report about Brett’s wiener texts…

    and it came from some girl who claims it happened way back when he played for the Jets…

    and she happens to be some ex-sorority ho who has been desperate for attention her whole life (see Playboy and Maxim shoots)…

    and she is just now agreeing to let this story loose, after her and the deadspin journalist were talking about the phenomenon of athlete dick-texting.

    Yeah… that sounds pretty legit. This story’s got some legs for sure.

    One more reason the packers will beat the vikings!
