Brett Favre News
October 9, 2010 by staff
Brett Favre, Over the past three years, Brett Favre (notes) that we know has changed. It was the name of the latest (and perhaps of all time most) in the list of cowboys that we love so well. Bobby Layne to Joe Namath to Terry Bradshaw, Ken Stabler John Elway, there are few things in the NFL community respects more than a guy who will pull themselves out of mud and throw a bomb 60 yards for the score the winner. There is a certain mentality that transcends the game, and Favre has had enough of him showed that his career in Green Bay build a big bank account of the media love.
With his departure from the Packers where we are now, Favre would need. Trip to Green Bay to New York to Minnesota, he posted his worst traits and highlights some of the worst in the media as well. It became evident that in the end, Favre is as much by his insecurities that his bravado – uncertainty about how his body will hold, how he saw at some point, and that people who depend on its ability to reach wheel throwing passes will have to prove their need for him to do this every year. The drama of annual retreat turned into a cross between a child of four years, threatened to run away from home and camping activities most unintentionally hilarious media you will ever see.
But with the recent allegations against Favre, the league’s Golden Boy is less a hero complex and a minefield for his team and the league. The NFL is now investigating allegations unearthed by Deadspin.com that Favre texted inappropriate messages and pictures of Jenn Sterger, a former New York Jets’ Host Game “, when he was quarterback of the Jets in 2008. This was bad enough, but these allegations on others. Now, two massage therapists who were part of group therapy Jets came out and said that Favre has sent similar messages. Deadspin.com You can go to and hear what seems certainly as voice messages from Sterger Favre, awkwardly attempting a connection that does not seem to have mutual interest. It’s a bunch of things for the media; especially with Favre Vikings prepare to face the Jets on Monday and so soon after the tragedy Ines Sainz.
(Incidentally, it is important to note that the alleged tricks Favre in New York happened during the time of Eric Mangini as head coach of the team, although Tony Dungy will probably find a way to reject the blame on Rex Ryan).
Why important these allegations? Why are they one of our businesses? And why is a potential problem for the NFL?
First, the allegations are significant because the NFL has a policy of personal conduct that reaches into the lives of his players. And with the possibility that an employee Jets acted as an intermediary between Favre and Sterger, it becomes more a matter of public interest – now we’re dealing with the possibility of workplace harassment.
And the allegations are our business because Brett Favre is our business, and that’s Brett Favre he wants. Favre has entered into a tacit agreement with the media during the offseason, he will keep the tension of these ads non-pension retirement / going as long as possible, giving the media says something to talk incessantly when homework agencies minicamp and sixth round draft pick did not juice that we seek. Ed Werder and Scott Hanson (who are qualified for much better things) can be sent to Hattiesburg on short notice whenever something belching up from the compound Favre and the circus can start over. One wonders how “comprehensive” coverage will be, if the allegations against Favre discover deeper truths and disturbing as they appear.
And the NFL, which has just made an important moral statement with Ben Roethlisberger (Notes) four-game suspension, cannot been considered a weakness if another star quarterback has had all kinds of deviant behaviors. What if Roger Goodell has no choice but to slam down the gavel, and to receive a heavy fine and / or the suspension of several games against Favre? This could easily prompt a boom Favre is always ready to pull from his quiver – the specter of another retirement. For readers / listeners / viewers would probably prefer a work stoppage at another offseason of “Does he or does not it?” – This is where everyone could feel just Favre.
“I’m not getting into that,” Favre said during the press conference that announced the trade for Randy Moss (notes). “My hands are full with the Jets and try to make some timing down with our guys, so all I’ll discuss it. “
