In a move that may just end the 20-year veteran's career, the sports blog Deadspin.com reported last week that the married NFL quarterback sent sexual text messages and voicemails to a pretty, female sideline reporter named Jenn Sterger while they were both employees of the New York Jets.
Allegedly, Ms. Sterger, at first, ignored the "strange and friendly" voicemails that Favre left her in 2008, soon after Favre came out of retirement and joined the Jets, not only because he was married, but, according to Deadspin.com, she "didn't think it was the best idea to start a torrid affair with the team's highest profile player." Sterger was also afraid of losing her job and "ending up in a garbage can." But, after the Mississippi native and football legend allegedly texted her a photo of his penis, as well as several other shots of him masturbating (strangely while he was wearing a pair of Crocs), the reporter and former model decided to go public with Favre's skeevy messages.
Even worse, shortly after the scandal broke, a female masseuse, who also worked for the Jets, came forward and claimed that Favre made unwanted sexual advances towards her too during a 2008 training camp.
"He was looking at me like I was a hanging slab of meat," the woman told the newspaper.
Favre allegedly followed up with her by sending her a flurry of inappropriate emails and texts, none of which pleased the therapist's husband.
"I called Favre back myself," said the woman's husband. "I was looking for an apology... I feel like this guy tried to screw my [expletive] family...He’s a [expletive] scumbag."
Not surprisingly, Favre, who currently plays for the Minnesota Vikings, did not apologize to the husband, and when asked for a comment about the scandal last Thursday, gave a non-denial denial, telling ESPN that the investigation into his inappropriate sexting "will take its course."
However, should the NFL commission decide to suspend Favre over his misconduct, it would end the 41-year-old's otherwise legendary career in a firestorm of scandal.
Sigh...when will these sexting sports stars learn?
