Brett Favre’s scandal of sexting inappropriate photos of himself to former New York Jets sideline reporter,Jenn Sterger, will wind up costing him a lot in some form or fashion. Even if the NFL finds Favre didn’t violate the league’s rules of conduct, his damaged image will come at some cost, as Bleacher Report reports.
Money, Money, Money….Brett Favre Won’t Have as Much of It
Forbes magazine estimates that the scandal could cost Brett Favre $10 million a year, equating to $100 million lost earnings in retirement. Talk about an expensive scandal. Who knew a cell phone with camera features could cause so much trouble?
Last year Brett Favre earned $7 in endorsements from Wrangler, Snapper lawnmowers, Nike, and Mastercard. These types of organizations want the good boy image of an all-American sports star. Between Tiger Woods and now this unforeseen scandal, big companies may want cell phone records of who they want to have represent their brand names. Did that just give any of them an idea?
Scandals Cost Athletes a Lot of Money
Brett Favre will meet with the NFL Tuesday in an effort to determine if he, in fact, violated any rules of conduct by allegedly sending Jenn Sterger photos of his lower region with unwanted messages back in 2008.
Endorsers just never know how a sports star’s life is going to turn out. Will it be smooth sailing in their personal lives or are they going to run head-on into the next biggest scandal? Either way, it costs everyone something and Brett Favre will be feeling it financially in this sexting headline.
