    It's ridiculous this even took so long. There's not really any point in suspending him. What, so he can miss the last game of the regular season?

    I find it hard to believe they didn't have proof the shots were of Favre's dong. I think they're protecting him.

    What a friggin joke.

    What are they going to do, make him drop his drawers and paddle him?

    He's lucky he isn't being brought up on criminal charges.

    One day after statute of limitations expire, nfl comes out fine, jets come out fine, favre can say "see I didn't do it, I just didn't feel I should have to defend myself", favre worshippers can say he didn't do anything wrong, new harassment training policy gets put in place so Sterger can say "see, it wasn't about the money" while pulling out $100 bills from the suitcase under her bed. Everyone's happy.

    Brent will be out scouring the parks in search of cans for the deposit in an effort to pay this fine...

    In a related story, sports fans across the nation have started sending footballs, baseballs, golf balls, tennis balls and any other sort of balls they can find to the NFL offices...it is apparent that they have lost theirs.

    Excellent!!


    Seriously can't believe that he still has defenders! WTH??
    He ADMITTED to the voicemails, now the only reasonable conclusion is that he was being uncooperative as far as the pictures, as they pretty much have the proof it was sent by his phone.
    Its 2010 people, not really a "who done it" case..but just because it IS a "WHO done it" case is why its dragging on so long, and why he's not being punished. Sickening.

    I just wish she would of come forward herself the day it happened. Would of , could of ..SHOULD of been an entirely different conclusion to this sick senerio!

    It's not likely, but Deanna may pick up the ball after Goodell dropped it. That would be a lot more than $50,000.

    50,000? That's literally POCKET CHANGE to Favre!

    Brett Favre's 2010 salary is $16 million meaning he makes an even $1 million per game. That equates to nearly $17,000 PER minute for the season. So it takes Favre 3 minutes to earn enough money to pay the fine. That is the equivalent of a person making $50,000 a year being fined ... wait for it ... $1.20.
    From ESPN

    I'm very disappointed with the outcome of this.

    I agree, he is getting special treatment just because he is, Brett Favre. It's BS.

    He's lucky that's all he got and Sterger didn't decide to pursue it outside of the NFL and drag him through court.

    They can't really suspend him if he's not going to play anymore. What's going to be interesting is if next year he waffles and decides he wants to play again. Can the suspension be retroactive and enforced at the beginning of the season considering it was omitted in regards of him impending retirement?

    Actually, $50,000 is about .003 of 16 million. .003 of 50,000 is $150. About what the average fan pays to see an NFL game.

    I imagine The little pr##k refused to have his little pr##k photographed to compare it to the text photos.

    What a guy. Wouldn't it make all Packer fans proud to have his number retired??

    Somehow I don't think we've seen the last of BF... unfortunately.

    I think the Sterger camp is going to release the rest of the dirt they have on him,.. at least we'll have something to "poke' fun at!

    I love how the headlines use the silly words to describe the case... "probe...wrapping up.... scandal erupting"
    that type of stuff..
    try googling Jenn Sterger Brett Favre its WONDERFUL!!

    This one cracks me up every time...

    Jenn Sterger: Brett Favre Scandal. Popular Galleries; Serial Killer's Secret Photos · "Grim Sleeper" Serial Killer Suspect's Secret Photos ...

    (only because it has the others tagged with it!! Whodathunk??)

    Ahhh the legacy continues!!!

    There's no way to prove intent with the dong pictures. Do we know Sterger didn't want them? It's her word against Favre's, and without hard :)icon_lol:) evidence it's pretty tough to say Favre was for sure harassing her.
