Earlier this morning TJC reported the NY Giants Minnesota Vikings game would be postponed to tomorrow night due to unsafe conditions from heavy snow on the Vikings’ Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. Well now, the Metrodome has collapsed from all the snow, and the game has been moved to Detroit’s Ford Field, home to the Detroit Lions. One person who is happy about the unfortunate circumstances is Brett Favre, since people are now finally talking about another Metrodome.
UPDATE: Fans who want to attend tomorrow’s game in Detroit can either do so by redeeming ticket stubs from today’s Lions vs. Green Bay Packers game, or tickets will be given away for free at the Ford Field box office tomorrow at 9am.
The New York Giants-Minnesota Vikings game has been postponed until tomorrow due to excessive snow in the Twin Cities. Strong winds and an expected two feet of snow has created unsafe conditions for the roof of the Viking’s Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.
The Vikings-Giants game will be aired on Fox and will go up against Monday Night Football’ Baltimore Ravens- Houston Texans matchup on ESPN.
The postponement of the game comes as a relief to Giants players who were stranded in Kansas City until this morning. The Giants’ plane could not land in Minneapolis because of snow conditions. The team was preparing to do their pre-game walk through in the airplane hanger of the Kansas City airport.
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.
