Audio: Mike Ditka on Jenn Sterger & Lil Favre: “I Have No Sympathy For Her”

At least with Mike Ditka, you know he is going to speak his mind.

Unfortunately though, half the time he doesn’t have all the facts straight or just is down right delusional.

You can listen to his entire interview about the Lil Favre incident above, but here are some of the more colorful snippets:

I’m not going to be as sympathetic to the woman as a lot of people are,” Ditka said. “It’s two years after the fact. Cut it out, you know? If you had a problem, you could have said it back then.”

“You don’t have to pull it up when when you’re going to have a spread in Playboy or you’re going to have a Monday night game coming up,” he said. “I’m old-fashioned.”

To which Le Batard said: “So, no sympathy?”


“None. Zero. Absolutely zero,” Ditka responded. “Now, you’ll get some calls about that, but frankly I could care less.”

Le Batard: “But it is sexual harassment, Mike.”


“I don’t know about that,” Ditka said. “If it’s sexual harassment, if it’s not reported until two years after the fact. I really don’t, I’ll be honest with you.”

Never speak unless you know all the facts and this is why Ditka just inserted his foot in his mouth.

Jenn Sterger did not provide the info to Deadspin.  What she did was tell Deadspin the story off the record and then they started fishing.  They found some people that Sterger had sent “Lil Favre” and the voicemails to.  They paid those people (or person) and that is how they get the alleged evidence.

Secondly, Miss Sterger has no current plans to do Playboy.

Lastly, it was Deadspin’s decision when this information was released,not Miss Sterger who has made it clear she didn’t want it released.

I never got the impression that Miss Sterger was looking for sympathy, if anything it appears she wish it never happened.

Regardless of when it happened, if you send an employee pics of your package just out of the blue, no matter how you rationalize it, the law says that is sexual harassment.

The law isn’t about how the woman handles it, it just states you can’t do it, so the time period is irrelevant.

If Miss Sterger was pushing an agenda, I could somewhat see Ditka’s point, but he is embarrassingly uninformed about the situation and in turn it makes his points look foolish based on the facts that we know.

He seems like many, to be under the impression that Brett Favre can do no wrong, so lets blame the woman.  She didn’t ask for “Lil Favre” to come to her phone. And what about the other woman who claimed that Favre likes to make good use of his unlimited texts?

That is an archaic way of thinking and does nothing to help the stereotype of dumb, sexiest jock.

    • So just because the story is out she's a whore?….Did she tell you about what happened face to face OR was it Farve you had the convo with?
      She sent the pics to herself?
      Had she had an affair with him AND THEN put these pics out Id question it.( Still wouldnt be a whore) WHY IS IT ALWAYS NECCESSARY TO CALL WOMEN OUT OF THEIR NAMES????

      • I certainly would not call Ms Sterger a Whore!! That in itsself is offensive. I do have certain questions as to her motives. In order to meet the legal definition of harrassment these actions must have been unwelcome and offensive to the recipient. I wonder if pictures of intimate body parts would have been unwelcome and offensive to someone that apparently makes a substantial part of her living doing the same thing. This is the age of equality. How is is that exposing female body parts is art and male parts harrassment? I think both should be kept private. You cannot spend a whole day trolling and be upset on what type fish you catch. I also question why and when information was leaked. It was done for MAXIMUM publicity, another self serving reason. My deepest sympathy lies with the Farve family (not Brett). They are the innocents here and not the self serving self gratifying crowd.

  1. But like you said, she told Deadspin about what happened off the record. So she can't be surprised that they went behind her back and went digging for more information. If she really wanted to do something about it, she would have reported it back when it happened. Like the saying goes : "you give someone an inch and they'll take a mile." She gave Deadspin a little bit of information and they took it and went off with it. Deadspin is not her BFF that she can share secrets with; they are a member of the media and when they see a hot story, they are going to pounce on it and do whatever they can to find info on it. I'm not saying Jenn Sterger is completely at fault because Brett Favre should have kept it in his pants and focused on football and how many times he is going to retire and then come back. But people need to stop acting like she is completely 100% innocent because she's not.

    • That was her biggest mistake, trusting people who she shouldn't. I think she liked the attention, but didn't expect it to blow up in her face.
