Jenn Sterger is not going down without a fight! The former NY Jets sideline reporter who has accused Brett Favre of sending inappropriate text messages now wants the league to suspend the NFL quaterback or else….
Sterger’s manager Phil Reese told Sports Illustrated’s Dan Patrick Show:
“If the commissioner suspends Favre and puts a program in place to prevent it from happening again…100 percent, Jenn would not pursue any litigation against Favre, against the Jets, against the NFL. Nothing. All she wants to do is clear her name. This is not about money.”
During the interview, Reese also addressed many rumors surrounding the investigation, including that Sterger only texted Favre to see if it really was the legendary quaterback saying, “If this is you, the least you could do is smile instead of giving me that creepy stare every time that you pass by.”
Reese also insists it was Favre’s camp who wanted to pay off Sterger contrary to previous reports. The night before Deadspin released the photos, Favre’s agent Bus cook contacted Reese, “He [Cook] asked me is there a specific figure that you had in mind to make this go away.”

The saga continues… Jenn Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese has informed TMZ his client has, “provided extensive evidence that irrefutably proves there was harassment,” in the alleged sext messages Brett Favre sent to the former NY Jets sideline reporter. After months of investigating, the league may come to a resolution as soon as today, but if Sterger does not like the outcome, she is prepared to take matters into her own hands. Reese told TMZ, “No matter what happens Jenn has all legal remedies, including going public if the NFL doesn’t clear her name.”
Sterger going public is a change of tune after she refused to cooperate with the NFL’s investigation for months. Farve’s camp claims Sterger wanted a settlement to keep quiet. Looks like Plan B is for Sterger to sell her story… lucky for her this is Oprah’s last season.

It was widely reported Jenn Sterger waited so long to talk to the NFL because she wanted to negotiate a settlement with Brett Favre. Now, Favre’s camp is coming forward saying that Sterger was money hungry therefore challenging allegations that Favre sent inappropriate text messages.
Bus Cook, Favre’s agent, told the Associate Press Sterger was motivated by money saying:
“Her manager and her lawyer have made numerous overtures to me… at least six between the two of them. We were never going to pay them, we didn’t pay them and we will never pay them. Because, there is NO reason to pay them!”
Whether or not the sext messages sent to Sterger were from Favre is still under investigation by the NFL. The NFL is even using electronic forensics to trace the photos back to the original sender.
Brett Favre had adamantly denied sending former NY Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger inappropriate sext messages back in 2009. The NFL is now using electronic forensics to determine if he is telling the truth. The story has dominated the sports headlines and prompted an NFL investigation. For weeks, Sterger refused to meet with the NFL, but earlier this month Sterger was interviewed by league officials and turned over SIM cards and phone records. The NFL has take the “substantial material” and relying on advanced technologies.
According to the NY Daily News, electronic forensic are being used to determine if the sext messages were sent from Brett Favre’s phone. Depending on the outcome, Tony Parker may decide to use the same excuse.
