While earlier reports suggested Brett Favre would not suffer any consequences for sending sextual messages – including pictures of his penis – to New York Jets reporter Jenn Sterger in 2008, FOXSports.com reports Favre will, in fact, be fined by the NFL:
Commissioner Roger Goodell is likely to fine, but not suspend, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre over the Jenn Sterger fiasco, FOXSports.com has learned. The ruling is expected to come as soon as Wednesday but no later than Thursday.
The league wanted to make a ruling before the end of the season but did not want to do it on New Year’s Day.
I honestly don’t see how anyone can get worked up over this ruling considering Ben Roethlisberger only sat out a couple games for alleged rape and sending someone a picture of your penis is on the complete opposite end of that spectrum. In fact, it’s practically a compliment in comparison.
GIRL #1: So, how was your date?
GIRL #2: Ohymygod, he totally sent me a photo of his penis instead of raping me. It was so romantic!
GIRL #1: You two are going to get married. I can tell.
GIRL #2: Wait, here’s another one. He’s masturbating in Crocs! Awww…
GIRL #1: My boyfriend never sends me stuff like that. Jerk.
