NFL investigating allegations about Brett Favre

The NFL is reviewing a report that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre sent suggestive photos and messages to a former sideline reporter while he played for the Jets.

"We are reviewing the matter," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Friday when asked about reports that Favre left voice mails and texted photos to Jenn Sterger, who now hosts "The Daily Line," a nightly sports roundup on the Versus network.

Favre was asked about the allegations Thursday during a press conference after the team traded for Randy Moss.

"I'm not getting into that," Favre said. "I've got my hands full with the Jets and trying to get some timing down with our guys. That's all I'm going to discuss."

I'm guessing that Favre's PR person was not happy with him using the phrase "I've got my hands full."

I'm not surprised. That jerk will do anything to get attention.

Funny that this news breaks days before the Vikings play the Jets. Someone in the Jets org has been keeping a lid on this for a while and chose an opportune time to let it slip.

"RANDY28146", Has anyone EVER said ANYTHING about you that upset you? Of course it's happened! Now amplify this,let's imagine it as national news.
Let's quietly wait for the findings of the investigation before you decide to throw a rock. If your right then you may feel great about yourself when you throw THAT rock at Brett Favre. If he's innocent then you will not appear to be such a hater, if you can manage to be quiet till then. HMMM what a concept!
Ya, good luck with that "randy28146"!

If he's innocent? LOL that is hilareous. Of course he did it. It may or not be as bad as is being portrayed, but of course it happened. My guess is if it was very bad it would have come out long before this. Even if it is 100% true, who cares. A QB flirts with a cute girl. Big deal.

Come on...that was two years ago! The rumor is just now coming to light?
Heck..Brett is looking for an excuse to retire once more. Maybe he started the
gossip?

The media can't find a story so they manufacture one. Now the superior moral majority can jump in and kick it all a round. IDGAS Play football. Why we have this innate need top destroy sucessful people is beyond me. uhg...

I suspect before this is over we might have another Tiger Woods saga. Now 2 more women have stepped forth. Packer fans have known for years that Mr. Favre isn't the wholesome, down to earth hero the media builds him as. A couple of things interest me: Jen Steger looks very much like a younger Deanna Favre. Deanna had breast cancer. Steger has huge pumped up implants. Coincidence? Secondly, if he has nothing to hide, then why not answer the direct question asked him during the press conference? That was evasion 101!
