The drama of the Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger saga continued today as Phil Reese, the public relations manager for Sterger, spoke on the Dan Patrick Show, and says that Sterger has no plans to sue the league IF they suspend Favre and clear her name over the incidents when she was with the Jets a few years back.
The following is from Patrick’s Blog about the appearance of Resse on the show today:
— Reese wants the NFL to act immediately. Dan asked if the NFL suspended Favre, would Sterger drop the whole thing. “If the commissioner suspends Favre and puts a program in place to prevent it from happening again … 100 percent, Jenn would not pursue any litigation against Favre, against the Jets, against the NFL. Nothing. All she wants to do is clear her name. This is not about money,” Reese said.
— Reese said that he talked to Brett Favre’s agent Bus Cook just before the story broke on Deadspin. “He asked me is there a specific figure that you had in mind to make this go away,” Reese said.
Reese said that he told Cook that there was nothing they could do. The information was coming out anyway.
— Reese is frustrated by the pace of the NFL’s investigation.
“I don’t know what’s taking so long here,” Reese said. “We have done everything to assist the investigation. We have gone above and beyond. We’ve been told the league is going to do the right thing.”
— Dan asked if Sterger complained to the Jets when this was going on. “No, she did not complain to the organization,” Reese said. Reese said she confided to people in the industry and they advised her if she went to the Jets, she would lose her job.
