The NFL met with Brett on Tuesday and on Wednesday they contacted A.J. Daulerio, the Deadspin blogger who originally broke the story about the Vikings QB allegedly texting his man parts to female Jets reporter, Jenn Sterger. Here’s how it went with Milton Ahlerich who must have the best job in the whole world:
I told him I’d be willing to speak with them but would not give up the source of the material or any other information that would possibly jeopardize the source’s anonymity. He understood. I told Mr. Ahlerich that any and all information we have to offer is available on the site and that I’m unwilling to give anything more than that right now. To this, he responded that he’s read over what has been on the site many, many times, meaning this poor man in the photo above has been looking at penis pictures for close to a week. Pity him.
Uh, oh. You know it’s bad for Vikings QB Brett Favre when hot shot attorney Gloria “I Never Met a Case I Didn’t Like” Allred starts sticking her nose in it. The last time we saw Gloria involved in a bad jocks situation, she was advising Tiger Woods’ #1 gal pal, Rachel “Cha Ching” Uchitel to keep HER mouth shut and we all know the money came rolling into her.
Now Allred is saying that it would be perfectly legal for Jenn Sterger to ask for money in exchange for not cooperating with NFL investigators regarding some alleged naughty pictures the future Hall of Famer sent her as part of a bumbled seduction.
Instead of getting better, this looks like it is only going to get worse for Brett.
The sexy TV personality who allegedly received X-rated crotch shots from Brett Favre is under no obligation to talk to NFL investigators – and, according to attorney Gloria Allred, she could even agree to a deal with the legendary quarterback to keep her mouth shut. Attorneys who believe their clients have legitimate harassment complaints can negotiate settlements that include confidentiality clauses, Allred told the Daily News Monday.
“Parties often agree to confidential settlements rather than have one party pursue litigation,” said Allred, who represented Tiger Woods’ mistresses Rachel Uchitel, who is reported to have received a settlement from Woods prior to canceling a news conference, and porn actress Joslyn James. “If there’s no legal merit to the claim, that’s a different situation.”
Sterger has not ruled out cooperating with the NFL’s probe but she has also not yet agreed to talk to the league’s investigators, according to a source familiar with the NFL inquiry. Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, declined comment Monday when asked if she has retained counsel.
Now, ESPN is saying that not only are the Vikings aware of the accusations, but there is also and NFL investigation.
Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said he has talked with Brett Favre about an NFL investigation into allegations that he sent racy photos to a former game hostess while he played for the New York Jets. Childress said that a report on the website Deadspin and the subsequent news of a league investigation have not been a distraction for the team this week as it prepares to play the Jets on Monday night.
“We just talk about what’s out there and look it right in the eye and deal with it to the extent we can,” Childress said on Saturday. “It doesn’t affect anybody else in this locker room, except Brett Favre.”
Childress said he knew nothing about the details of the Deadspin report and hasn’t heard from the league. He declined to speak specifically about his conversation with Favre. “We always speak about [reports]; about everything,” Childress said. Favre was not made available for comment, and the team said he did not plan to speak on the matter Saturday. He declined comment during his regular news conference on Thursday.
