Deadspin Claims Brett Favre Sent Naughty Pictures to Jenn Sterger

The guys over at have done some really great reporting over the years. Some of it we wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole, but it still makes for great reading/gossip. The latest? Wow, just wow. How do we put this delicately?

They are reporting that one of the most beloved stars of the NFL sent pictures of his man parts to a young woman who was not his wife OR his proctologist. But it sounds like they might not have really gotten confirmation of all of this, other than a conclusion that the hand in the pictures has the same watch on as Mr. Favre. Not surprisingly, as a result, there has been a shitstorm of controversy, so we have to cover it.

Is this the kind of story any of you think we should be doing?

Here’s another reason Brett Favre should stay retired this time: Turns out The Daily Line’s Jenn Sterger has kept a ridiculously disturbing (but HILARIOUS) secret about her interactions with The Gunslinger while they were both part of the Jets organization.

For those who don’t know (or forget) who Jenn Sterger is: formerly buxom Florida State Cowgirl who gained internet notoriety for being a buxom Florida State fan who parlayed that popularity into a full-time career.

Last winter, close to the Super Bowl, Ms. Sterger and I were discussing a possible collaboration on the proposed “Deadspin Swimsuit Project,” which turned into a conversation about the whole “athlete dong photo” phenomenon. She claimed that she’s been on the receiving end of several of those types of cell phone interactions by drunk men, some of whom were professional athletes. We later had a phone conversation about who some of the more well-known dong-shot senders were. One person, she claimed, who was very into cell phone-donging her was none other than Brett Favre. Now, at one point in his career, this news wouldn’t be too surprising. Favre’s time in Green Bay is littered with stories about his boozing and carousing. But gray-haired Favre? Oh yeah, she said.
