With the NFL announcing that they are winding down the investigation into the allegations that Minnesota Vikings’ Brett Favre sent “inappropriate” texts and photos – as well as voice mails – to then Jets employee Jenn Sterger, predictions are flying in as to whether or not Favre (quarterback for the New York Jets, at the time of the alleged incidents) will be found guilty of violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. And, if found guilty, will the punishment fit the crime?
Not too long ago, the same speculations about Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, were taking center stage. While never being charged with a crime, nor admitting any wrong-doing, Roethlisberger was suspended for six games (later reduced to four) and was required to be evaluated and placed in a “program” that would show his understanding of how to behave as a member of the NFL.
Favre, on the other hand, has admitted to leaving Sterger the voice mail messages, and Sterger has cooperated with the NFL investigation by providing her “evidence” to the additional accusations. What do you think about it?
