Brett Favre Fined By NFL In Jenn Sterger Investigation

Brett Favre has been fined $50,000 by the NFL for not cooperating in its investigation of Jenn Sterger’s allegations of improper behavior by the QB. The NFL has issued a release on the matter;

“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.”

“In reviewing the matter, the sole focus was on whether there was a violation of league policies regarding conduct in the workplace. NFL policies do not extend to private conduct or make judgments about the appropriateness of personal relationships, except where that conduct or those relationships raise issues under the law or league policies.”

“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.”

Basically, he can’t prove that Brett did it but he knows that “something” happened. The lesson here for the ladies, if you truly feel you’re being sexually harassed, don’t wait. Take immediate action. The lesson for the men, it’s smart to make covert moves and leave your face out of “peen” pics. Benefit of doubt can be a career saver! Not sure if that works in your relationships though. :shrug:
