Report says Sterger leaning towards meeting with league investigators

While the NFL tires to put to bed the whole Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger saga, she still has yet to chat with the league on the whole text message and pictures that she claimed Favre sent her when she was an employee with the Jets.

Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, said today that Sterger has not met with league investigators. He would not divulge if any meetings with the league are planned but that “she is strongly considering it and is leaning towards it.”

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the league wanted to bring the matter to a close within the next week, and really they couldn’t do much of anything if Sterger didn’t talk to the league.

The Pioneer Press reported last week that Sterger would decline the league’s interview request if she and the Vikings quarterback reach a financial settlement that would prevent her from any potential legal action against Favre.

    I’m not sure why these issues are rammed down our throats and forced into such public visibility. I mean I know why (it grabs headlines), but why do we have to deal with them? The NFL, like any other business, is still at heart a company. Shouldn’t company issues be handled intra-company instead of in the court of public opinion, at least until a final resolution has been reached?

    It’s just a nuisance that we have to hear about Jenn Sterger’s latest leanings regarding whether she will talk with the NFL about a matter that has nothing to do with football. She’s “strongly considering it and leaning towards it.” Are you kidding me? What does she have the Pentagon Papers? Stop milking this to promote your career and let us enjoy football.

    I understand that in some cases public visibility may act as a deterrent towards future inappropriate conduct, but teach that lesson ex post facto, not before anything has been proven. Anyway, whether or not it’s an effective deterrent is seriously questionable. Do you think people will stop cheating on their wives because of what happened to Tiger? If you still buy into the deterrent theory, making an example of someone after the fact would arguably be more effective and more just than dragging someone through the mud without evidence (not defending Favre). Plus, it’s annoying to watch it play out, at least to me.

    Bottom line is if I want a soap opera I’ll turn on daytime TV, not NFL Network or ESPN. Maybe our celebrity obsessed media and public is to blame, but I think I should just stop now.

    The response above is interesting. I guess my question is were you not aware of the link that you clicked? Was the link unclear as to what this subject is about? I think it was pretty clear what this site was about. In reference to the “lack of evidence” he did confess to the voicemails did he not. On another note this country is built on freedom of speech so if you don’t like it don’t read it. That simple. To answer your question no you don’t have to deal with these headlines. DONT READ THEM. Nothing is forced upon you. Be accountable you CLICKED this link.
