Brett Favre Fined $50,000 For Not Coorperating With NFL in Sterger’s Case
Brett Favre is my hero.
Basically Favre said to the NFL, Jenn Sterger, Sterger’s lawyers and his wife in his best Rick James voice
“I’M BRETT FAVRE B*TCH”
And they all backed down, now that is GANGSTER.
The NFL has fined Brett Favre $50,000 — but in a surprise twist, it has not determined that he violated the league’s personal-conduct policies.
Instead the fine is for refusing to cooperate with the investigation into whether he sexually harassed Jenn Sterger when both worked for the New York Jets.
Tiger Woods is looking at this like:
“Oh that is how I should have handle this.”
When the police have someone who isn’t coorperating they normally assume they are guilty and charge them with the crime. In the NFL if Brett Favre says I am not going to give you the information you want, they just slap him on the wrist and move on.
If this is Favre’s final act in the NFL, he went out guns blazing Tony Montana style.
Here is the the NFL had to say:
On the basis of the evidence currently available to him, Commissioner Goodell could not conclude that Favre violated league policies relating to workplace conduct. The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger. The review found no evidence to contradict the statements of both Favre and Sterger that they never met in person, nor was there anything to suggest that Sterger engaged in any inappropriate conduct.
However, Commissioner Goodell also determined that Favre was not candid in several respects during the investigation, resulting in a longer review and additional negative public attention for Favre, Sterger, and the NFL. The commissioner notified Favre that he has been fined $50,000 for his failure to cooperate with the investigation in a forthcoming manner. Commissioner Goodell stated to Favre that if he had found a violation of the league’s workplace conduct policies, he would have imposed a substantially higher level of discipline.
