If allegations that Brett Favre sent sexually explicit images to then-New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger in 2008 prove true, he may face a legal storm.
Most of the issues stem from the fact that the advances were allegedly unwanted and that both were employed by the Jets at the time

Has Favre been taking lessons from Tiger Woods. :roll:

During Tiger Woods fiasco he stayed at Brett Favre's estate as a refuge from the reporters. Way back then I wondered if the Brett was playing the same kind of ball game. What a pair of idiots.

Glad to see there were some classy people at Lambeau last night, giving respect where respect is due. Also classy Packers and Packer staff. Thanks for the great memories Mr. Favre. Too bad some of the others seem to forget.

Yea Deb, Favre is definitely a class act. He should have retired a few years ago as now what legacy he has left could be tarnished by suspension and he's likely to wind up divorced.

He's admitted to sending messages (although not the pictures, etc.). It's likely to be considered sexual harassment and he could be suspended. The Vikings are having a horrible year and he's obviously at serious risk of injury as now he has elbow and ankle problems.

Yep, won't show up to training camp, Deanna already nearly threw him out once in 1999, injured, possibly a slime ball, etc... Sorry, I just don't have any respect left, I simply hope he doesn't get hurt.

I'd guess....slime ball. Suspicions were abound about his character when he invited Tiger Woods to hang out at his estate while Tiger wanted privacy. They always say that birds of a feather hang together. He's an idiot. First off for not retiring on a high note with all the endorsements anyone could dream of but now, looking for some strange when he's already got a babe at home. Dummy!

It's sad - plain and simple. My son grew up knowing only one quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. My daughter, by the age of two, knew who Brett Favre was. In my eyes, there was never a player who was more fun to watch. He had the opportunity to "go out on top" when he retired from the Packers a few years ago. Most fans forgave him when he decided to play for the Jets. I think some even forgave him when he went to the Vikings. And no one will dispute the fact that he had a terrific season last year. But now it's time to hang it up. And unfortunately, his legacy has been tarnished terribly with his hi-jinx. Yes, I had a few tears in my eyes when I saw him leave the field last night. But they weren't the same kind of tears I cried when he spoke his last words as a Packer. It was because I was looking at a broken man - both physically and morally.

Brett didn't turn his back on the Packers, the Packer management turned their backs on him. He wasn't ready to retire. Just my humble opinion. Too bad it's turning out the way it is.

Given the products of the last 2 1/2 seasons, I'd say time has proven Ted and Mike were right. Maybe they saw the direction he was headed on and off the field.

Then again had Thompson and McCarthy not resorted to good old boy tactics the past 2 season could have been even more productive. Rodgers would have stuck around. Guess we'll never know.

I don't see how making a veteran QB prove his commitment to the team was "good old boy tactics". Apparently he thought that he didn't need to show up to training camps because of past years. Nevermind the fact that even if he didn't need the workout, working with his new receivers was a necessity given his abilities. Why should the team work around his wants and needs? If he wanted to play, he sure didn't know how to show it. No team runs on past accomplishments. If they did, the Superbowl would be a bunch of retired players talking about Joe Montana and the Dolphin's perfect season.

Rodgers would have been a fool to hang around for 3 more years of the will-he-won't-he game. It's not like Favre was taking him under his wing to prime him to take over.

Favre and Childress deserve each other. By next year the Viqueens should be hemorrhaging key players as they look for a team with more stability in talent and behavior.

Minnesota Lakers to Los Angeles Lakers
Minnesota North Stars to the Dallas Stars
Minnesota Vikings to the California Viqueens?

Favre is toast. Through his post game actions he has shot his promotional & TV sports analyst potential. Through his football antics (Retire, unretire, celebrate wildly on a TD but limp or hold arm after an interception.) he has no street or fan cred left.

Any one want to buy a boatload of Favre football cards?

~sits back and sneakers while stirring the pot~ He was committed to the team, it was the Good Old Boys that were looking to make it "their" team not a Holmgren team. Over the years on many teams back-up QBs stick around just waiting their turn. Quite frankly Rodgers had nothing to show to any other team.

Of course people are saying Favre deserves being hurt. Two fractured bones in his foot. Reports are the last person to see him limp was Jenn Sterger.

Didn't read the poem. Just tired of the drama. Yes many players have tried to stay in the game past their prime. (e.g. Namath to the LA Rams) But none of them played out their decision making process in public quite like Brett.

Brett, either go away or try to play next year. But do it without all the drama & photo ops!

If the old fart wants to try another season, that's his perogative. All I ask is say "yes or no" without all the indecisive drama.

Anybody want to buy a boatload of Favre football cards? This includes about 18 different rookie cards.

Brett Favre's sister arrested at Meth Lab

DIAMONDHEAD, Miss. — The sister of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre faces drug charges after she was arrested Wednesday in a raid on a condo where people were making crystal methamphetamine, authorities said.
Brandi Favre, 34, was among five people arrested in Diamondhead, Miss., and was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste, said Hancock County Sheriff's Maj. Matt Karl.
The four other suspects ranged in age from 25 to 53.
About nine grams of the drug — worth about $1,000 — was recovered and hazardous materials teams had to clear the condo, Karl said.
Brandi Favre was in custody and has an initial court appearance scheduled Thursday morning.
The arrest was first reported by WLOX-TV in Biloxi.
It is not the first time Brandi Favre has been in trouble with the law.
In 1999, Favre, her sister-in-law and another woman were booked with felony shoplifting. In 1996, she was charged with unlawful use of a weapon in connection with a drive-by shooting at a motel in Slidell, La. At the time she was a student at Southern Mississippi, where Brett Favre played.
She completed a program in Louisiana that allowed her criminal charges to be erased.
Karl said officers are "very familiar" with Favre. "She's always in trouble," he said.

Looks like both the Favre siblings are making money.

Living in the shadow of a sibling does funny things to a person.
