More developments in our Jersey Chaser of the Month meeting with NFL officials…. According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Jenn Sterger is cooperating with the NFL’s investigation on the Brett Favre sext messages because the legendary quarterback would not negotiate a settlement with her.
The inappropriate pictures and voice mails Favre allegedly sent Sterger back in 2008 were released by Deadspin.com over a month ago. Sterger refused to speak to the NFL in the hopes of reaching a financial settlement with Favre. However, despite reaching out to him, Favre’s reps did not return Sterger’s team’s phone calls. A settlement would have prevented Sterger from taking legal action and would have included a confidentiality agreement.
Sterger met with NFL officials yesterday, accompanied by her lawyers and manager. It was first thought that Sterger was not cooperating with the investigation because of her show The Daily Line on Versus, which is now canceled.
Though Sterger initially wanted a settlement, when asked about the Tiger Woods scandal back in April, Sterger told the Ministry, “I feel like at some point these guys need to be sat down and told, ‘Look, you’re not invincible…. For every dumb girl that’s willing to lay down for you, at some point there’s going to be one smart enough to know what to do with that.”
Is it all over for Brett Favre? Jenn Sterger finally met with the NFL to answer the tough questions about the sexual harassments voice messages and sext messages Favre allegedly left her. Favre was questioned by the NFL back in October, but Sterger would not cooperate in the investigation, so it was left at a standstill. Sterger and her lawyer Phil Reese met with the NFL’s Secruity Cheif Milt Ahlerich. Reese told the NY Post, “We can confirm that a meeting took place with the NFL today and we cooperated fully by providing them with substantial materials in our possession. We now await the NFL’s decision.”
While Favre admitted to leaving the voicemails he admittedly denied sending naked text messages.
Last night in an interview on the NFL Network, Favre told former NFL coach Steve Mariucci he would not be playing in 2011…. we’ve heard that one before.
In the most controversial Jersey Chaser of the Month decision in site history… the JCM for November is Jenn Sterger. It was a decision of good versus evil, in a close race between Deanna Favre and Sterger . Ultimately our Twitter followers spoke, and Sterger got the honor. Sterger has been dominating the headlines after Deadspin.com released sext messages and voicemails Brett Favre sent her back in 2009 when she worked as a NY Jets sideline reporter. The scandal has prompted the NFL to do its own investigation to see if Favre violated any player conduct polices. We hope Sterger getting Jersey Chaser of the Month for November cheers her up after she lost her job at Versus and her show “The Daily Line” was canceled.
After Jenn Sterger was fired from Versus, the woman behind the Brett Favre sexting allegations has decided to speak with the NFL in their investigation. Charley Casserly of CBS is reporting that Sterger has agreed to be interviewed by the league in their investigation of Brett Favre violating NFL Personal Conduct Policies.
Sterger had been adamant that she would not meet with league officials until now. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said while the league would like to confirm if the photos are form Favre, they are also interested in knowing why Sterger did not report the incident two years ago when it happened.
