Good news for Brett Favre fans . . . well sort of. FOX Sports senior writer Jay Glazer is reporting that the Vikings QB told the NFL he was bad, but not THAT bad.
We doubt Mrs. Favre will be as impressed with the difference as the Commissioner.
Glazer, speaking on the FOX NFL pregame show, said a source informed him that Favre claimed responsibility for the voice messages during his meeting with NFL security on Tuesday. Favre is being investigated for potentially violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after allegations that the future Hall of Famer sent Sterger inappropriate messages while he was playing for the team in 2008. Favre currently plays for the Minnesota Vikings.
Sports news website Deadspin sparked the controversy on October 7 when it posted a video montage containing the voice messages and racy photographs allegedly sent by Favre.
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.
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.
