Brett Favre and Jenn Sterger have been linked together before. But the new Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger evidence may be the most damning and suspicious yet. Two months ago, the website Deadspin alleged that the Vikings quarterback sent dirty e-mails and pictures to a sideline reporter. However, the reporter did not go public with these accusations, as Deadspin posted them, although she made them off-the-record. Yet Deadspin is at it again, posting new scandal details that involve audio files and full frontal pictures.
Deadspin posted a 2+ minute video that is decidedly unsafe for work. According to them, they contain audio files of Favre calling Sterger – and also contain the photos of his penis that he allegedly sent. Back in August, Deadspin first made these allegations public, but did not have this kind of alleged evidence.
However, the new Favre-Sterger scandal details were received from a third party, which is no surprise. When Deadspin posted the original allegations, Sterger did not give her permission, as she made these claims in private. The article confirms that she didn’t give permission for this either, and is “sadly” still reluctant to go on the record.
The timing of this video is fairly obvious to all. Favre presumably made these advances in 2008, when he was with the Jets and when Sterger was a sideline reporter. This week, he is coming back to New York with the Vikings, for a Monday night showdown against his old team.
Already this season, the Jets have gotten in a share of trouble for misconduct, thanks to the Ines Sainz scandal weeks ago. Although the Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger allegations are from two years ago, before Rex Ryan and the current Jets culture took over, it is a very timely story nonetheless.
As for Deadspin, they have had an extremely busy week already, after posting the Karen Owen PowerPoint presentation days ago. After breaking a new sex scandal involving athletes, they have gotten to work reviving an old one, and may have topped themselves this time.
When the initial story on the athlete and the reporter came out, it happened right as the latest Favre retirement drama came to a climax. Once again, Deadspin is using suspicious timing, as this broke days before Favre’s return to New York. But with their new audio and NSFW pictures, it may be harder to dismiss.
Favre has even had to comment on these developments, stating that he already has his hands full with the Jets. But that is why Deadspin claims he tried to get his hands full with Sterger – whether Sterger wants to say it herself or not.
