Favre’s Woes Worsen

This has been a rough week for Brett Favre. 

With the way things are progressing, though, next week might be even worse.

First, Favre reportedly had an MRI conducted on his throwing arm which revealed some inflammation.

“It was not an issue before we went on the bye and we worked pretty good on Monday and Tuesday out here. It flares up every now and then,” Brad Childress said. “MRI just says he’s got a little inflammation, so you manage it. You manage and kind of let his body talk to him. He takes turns that he needs to take and specific plays that he needs to take them on, not a lot different than last year.”

Also, the front page headline of the New York Postread “Favre Sext Blitz” and much of the paper was devoted to recent allegations against Brett Favre.  Many other publications have picked up an this story and are running with it, as well.

PFT points out that one Postarticle makes it known that the New York Jets are cooperating with the NFL’s investigation of the matter, and have provided the NFL with the contact info of two massage therapists that were under contract with the Jets when Favre was the quarterback.  The running story suggests that Favre made unwanted advances via cell phone on both women and that they still have the evidence.

The story is similar to what has been suggested about Favre’s alleged advances towards former Jets contractor Jenn Sterger.

Meanwhile, PFT also points out the this isn’t the first time Favre has been rumored to be involved with women other than his wife Deanna.  The first set of rumors came from Deanna herself, straight from the pages of her autobiography.

“Everybody’s here that’s working on a normal Saturday. It’s not a distraction to us at all,” Childress said. “We just don’t let it be. We address it, then talk about it and then we’re done with it. I haven’t heard anything and I don’t know anything about that.”

Childress says he has already spoken with the team about the issue.

“I don’t know how to categorize that,” Childress continued. “We just talk about what’s out there and look it right in the eye. Deal with it to the extent that we can. It doesn’t affect anybody else in this locker room except Brett Favre.”

“I guess my experience is they’re distractions if you allow them to be and so when you address it and talk about it altogether, then you go forward,” Childress said.

I mentioned this in the comments section a few posts back, but I want to repeat it here in this post.  While I am fully intending to cover the Favre story to the best of my ability, just like anything else related to the Vikings, I would caution our readers to not jump to any conclusions about Favre or the alleged victims.  I will present information as information is known, especially if it is important to this team’s football success or failure, but Vikings Gab does not intend to be neither judge nor jury on this matter.

    Really don’t feel bad for Favre at all if the allegations are true. I wonder what could happen to these people (Deadspin and others…) if the story turns out to be false. Libel? Slander?

    I just really hope it doesn’t effect our team at all…

    In other news… does anyone think it’s a real possibility that we could snag Vick next year?

    I have a hard time thinking favre would send pics of his unit to anyone especially to a woman who loves any type of publicity. My bet is the pr guy has a southern friend with a favre impression. The pr guy was probally trying to get the girl to send naked pics back.

    If these texts arereal than bret joins tiger on the all league retard sextibg team.

    Sorry Favrelous,
    probably worked for him a 100 times, a friend with a southern accent? She waited a long time to come forward….follow the money
