Second Set Of Favre Allegations Revealed

Earlier today we touched on the fact that Deadspin.com’s claims against Brett Favre were being officially investigated by the NFL, and suggested that the mainstream media would finally pay attention to the story.

Considering that the allegations are now ESPN’s lead story on the ticker at the bottom of their screen, I would say this story now officially has legs.

Then came another turn of events.

More allegations have surfaced of similar actions involving other Jets employees/contractors.  Profootballtalk.com’s take on the matter can be  read right here along with more details of the latest allegations.

      No offense Lemke, but I find your “take” as humorous at best.

      In the same way that I would suggest that people resist the urge to jump to any conclusions regarding Favre, I would suggest that people wait before jumping to conclusions about the women involved.

      You agreeing with your reader that these are probably just some “stupid girls” further illustrates that a certain percentage of the public are going to jump to that exact conclusion without any evidence of their own, which is the exact reason that women that really are sexually harrassed do not come forward right away or ever. The immediate assumption that they are just “some ho” does nothing but contribute to this mess, in the same way it would be wrong to simply assume that Favre is just a “sly dog.”

      To suggest that this is some plot to distract Favre and give the hometown Jets some sort of edge is just plain ridiculous. These claims have been known about since the preseason, and it is the maistream media and the NFL (NOT Jenn Sterger) that decided to make an issue of it this week.

      And would any of us really be that surprised if a professional athlete millionaire did something wrong? I bet you wouldn’t defend your local congressman with such certainty, but lets be honest, that’s only becuase your local congressman has never thrown a touchdown.

  1. It’s just my opinion, that it may not be true. Just saying, it’s a little fishy that it’s brought up and most talked about NOW. For the record, I never called them names like that, or really anything at all in my post. I am not sexist, or always take the man’s side or anything like that. I also said if the alligations are proven true, i would make a sincere apology. I was obviously mad when I wrote the post, but I’m still not completely convinced that the alligations are true. maybe they are, who knows? we’ll wait and see what happens. No hard feelings, man!

      No need to apologize, I was just expressing my opinion like you expressed yours. The timing is probably not a coincidence, I agree with you there, but I think certain media outlets may be more to blame than the women involved.

      We first started talking about this back on August 4th. Deadspin made it known. I repeated it along with a few other blogs. No major media outlet (besides PFT) bothered to mention the story. The NFL chose not to announce their investigation at that time. Everyone who has self-serving interests in seeing Favre succeed refused to mention the story. Deadspin had to up the ante this week by releasing some more hard evidence, and the timing of that is pretty suspect, for sure. But if the main media and the NFL had looked into this in the first place then they probably already would’ve known about it.

      Now there is more “evidence” against Favre than there ever was against Roethlisberger, if the “evidence” ends up to be legit.
