Sterger’s sitdown with NFL probers — which came after more than weeks of uncertainty about whether she would agree to that interview — greatly ratchets up the chances that Favre will disciplined by the league for the purported misconduct, which allegedly occurred when he was playing for the Jets in 2008.
And The Post has learned that Sterger and her legal team gave the NFL “a substantial amount” of material and information beyond what was previously reported about Favre’s pursuit of her.
The meeting lasted over three hours, which can’t be good.
Sterger, 26, met for more than three hours with NFL security chief Milt Ahlerich and another league investigator at an undisclosed location in Manhattan. She was accompanied by her lawyer, Joseph Conway, and her manager, Phil Reese.
“We can confirm that a meeting took place with the NFL today and we cooperated fully by providing them with substantial materials in our possession,” Reese told The Post after the sitdown.
“We now await the NFL’s decision.”
Taking this into consideration, one would think a suspension is in Brett’s future.
Asked if she had gone beyond merely confirming what was first reported about Favre’s ham-handed pursuit of Sterger, Reese said “yes,” adding that it was “a substantial amount beyond what had already been reported.” He would not elaborate.
Yes even Brett should at least be suspended a few games. Unless of course the NFL wants to be seen as having a double-standard.
This should come as no surprise as the ritual of the last few years is playing out when it comes to Brett Favre and retirement.
For the third straight summer, no one knows what Brett Favre will decide. Will he return? Will he retire? He is dragging out the process, yet again. Now, even Favre’s own agent, Bus Cook, is tired of the drama. According to Men’s Journal, Cook angrily ranted to Favre about him contacting ESPN’s Ed Werner to state that he needs ankle surgery to play in 2010.
“Now why did he do that,” Cook said to Men’s Journal. “…Goddammit, why does he have to be such a goddamned drama queen? Play, don’t play, goddamn, people are getting sick of it. I’m getting sick of it!…You got problems with surgery, talk to your wife. Why talk to goddamned Ed Werder?”
Favre released the following statement about his grandson on his website:
“Deanna and I are very proud to welcome Parker Brett to the Favre family. Parker Brett was born on Friday, April 2, weighing 7 lbs. 7 oz and we’re pleased to say that both Mom, Dad and Parker Brett are healthy and doing great.”
“A grandpa at 40. It almost makes me feel old,” Favre said, according to ESPN‘s Ed Werder. As for its affect on his future with the Vikings, Favre said, “It makes things more complicated but right now I’m not thinking much about football.” (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)
Grandpa Favre and at age 40. So will the birth of a grandson bring about a permanent retirement for perhaps the greatest QB to play the game?
