Brett Favre’s lack of a denial toward the allegations that he sent inappropriate text messages, including pictures of his penis, is not helping his image, according to an article on ESPN.
Two women have now made allegations that Favre used a very inappropriate courting ritual of sending racy text messages to them.
The first woman, Jenn Streger, was a side line reporter for theNew York Jets at the time Favre played for that team. She was the one who Favre allegedly sent the picture of his penis to.
The second woman is unnamed, but she worked for the Jets as a massage therapist while Favre was part of the team.
Favre has had two chances to at least say “the allegations are false” between the time the story broke and today. He was asked about the allegations last Thursday and replied “I am not getting into that I got my hands full with the Jets.”
He passed up another opportunity to just say “it is not true” on Sunday during an ESPN production meeting. He said basically the same thing he said on Thursday, even referring to what he said on Thursday.
According to ESPN, when Favre was asked plain and simple, “Is the story true?,” Favre replied, “That will take its course.”
It is easy to see why the reports about Favre hitting on not only one but two women are starting to look as if they may be true. Just a quick “I did not do this” would have at least given his fans something to hang onto.
The investigation of these allegations is underway by the NFL, and they might have told Favre not to say one thing or another about the allegations. Hopefully for Favre, this is the reason he is skirting a denial.
If Favre actually did send the racy messages and a picture of his penis via cell phone, then this does not speak well for his intelligence level. Cell phone calls and messages are extremely traceable today.
Tracing calls and text messages cannot be done by the average citizen, but with the proper warrants, police can not only trace where the cell phone call came from, but they can read the messages and see the pictures, according to Dateline.
Anybody who would send any type of incriminating evidence over a cell phone is just opening himself up for a scandal, much like the one that appears to be building here.
