Brett Favre’s Penis Strikes Again

January 4th, 2011 // 71 Comments

Two former massage therapists for the New York Jets, Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, have filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Brett Favre, the Jets and Lisa Ripi, who’s hired massage therapists for the team for over thirteen years. Apparently Brett wasn’t saving his text love for just Jenn Sterger and was trying to spread his digital love wherever he could stick it. Good Morning America has the exclusive:

In the suit, Scavo alleges that Favre sent text messages to another unidentified massage therapist, asking Scavo and the unidentified woman to “get together” with Favre.
Scavo said that in 2008 while Favre was with the New York Jets, he treated her like a “hanging slab of meat.” In the suit she claims he wanted a three-way with her and another therapist.
Favre allegedly texted the unidentified therapist, writing, “Brett here, you and Crissy want to get together, I’m all alone,” according to the lawsuit.
Favre allegedly sent another text message reading, “Kinda lonely tonight, I guess I have bad intentions.”
Scavo claimed that after she refused Favre’s advances and had her husband, Joseph Scavo, call Favre to demand an apology, both Scavo and the other plaintiff, Shannon O’Toole, were never offered work with the Jets again.

As for this Lisa Ripi woman, check out how she reacted to the situation – besides just firing them – which pretty much explains why no one comes forward with these things:

Joseph Scavo claimed that his wife then came under fire from her boss, Lisa Ripi, a defendant in the lawsuit. The suit alleges that Ripi wrote “for sure feel horrible that u had to go thru that [with] a pervert…however I truly wish you would’ve come forward at the time it happened.”
Ripi goes on to say, “I’ve been up there 13 years without anything that happened to me on tmz…cause it was handled internally the way it should be,” according to the lawsuit.
Elizabeth Eilender, the attorney for Scavo and O’Toole, said that her clients did not want to file a lawsuit, but when the Jets refused to give them back their jobs, they had no choice.
The suit alleges that the Jets’ locker room and training camp are “a hot bed of sexual harassment, sexism and inappropriate behavior.”

Wow. “I’ve been up there 13 years without anything that happened to me on tmz.” Read: “Is it really rape if you get to keep your job afterward?” And yet these women didn’t want come forward to this lady? Weird. But, seriously, why do I get the feeling they’ve seen others go into an office with accusations and suddenly there’s more trash than usual to go out that day? I’m not really suggesting the NFL murders women, but I’m also not not suggesting they’re subjected to a workplace that regards them as nothing more than locker room equipment to throw penis photos at. And murder.

    Favre didn’t seem to complete many passes when he was with the Jets, either on or off the field. He should’ve stayed retired the first time.

  3. It’s so simple. Stop sending women in to the MFing locker rooms. They suck as commentators to begin with but then you are gonna send them in to rub on a room full of sweaty, testosterone-filled, amped-up men??! For fuck’s sake! Even if every single one of these guys was behaving perfectly, women are money-grubbing cunts.

    • Furthermore, how come it ONLY ever happens to men with fame and fortune (the men who are LEAST LIKELY to need to attack women). Joe Shmo rarely gets sued for millions of dollars for sexually harrassing the trailer park attendant. I hope all three of these women get slapped with defamation of character suits and found guilty of perjury.

      • Dan

        That is because Joe Shmo doesn’t have any money…

      • Leverage or power, like it or not, usually goes hand in hand with money.
        So unless Joe Schmo owns the fucking trailer park, he’d be unlikely to have the power and/or authority to harass that attendant – and unless he owns many parks, a lawsuit won’t run into the millions.
        And we all know that people in authority NEVER abuse that position, because power and money NEVER corrupts, does it? Wake the fuck up. No one with coin technically “needs” to sexually abuse or attack anyone when they can either pay for it or just reach out their hand for anyone who’d be willing, yet some people like the rush of being able to take what others don’t want to willingly give up.

    • Taras Bulbous

      Pro athletes are man-children, not “men.” They’ve never had to work to get laid and are totally surprised when a girl turns down the opportunity to have a gain-nothing threesome with her coworker and a washed up has-been QB. Shhhhhhocking.

    • Chauncey

      Thank you! Any locker men’s room anywhere is a “hot bed of sexism” why haven’t women figured out this shit when they aren’t around guys aren’t exactly taking about your cute outfits, unless you bought it at a porn shop.

    • Juliet7771

      totally agree… I’m all for women’s lib, but Football is a man’s man sport… these women go into these locker rooms, expect to be treated no differently than men, well live with it. They wanted this job, deal with it. They shouldn’t be allowed in locker rooms, it’s where men change and act like men… they are bound to say something or do something that could be considered “sexual” toward women… get them out of there. I’m so sick of hearing about how women deserve to be a part of everything, should be treated the same as a man, then get pissed off when it happens. Double standards and it makes us other women look like morons. Men will be men. F’ing deal with it…

      • Rigor_Morts

        You’re damn right! You know what else is a man’s job? Police! So if a bitch complains about being harassed when she’s trying to work, then GET FUCKING OVER IT! Firefighting? Yeah, that’s a man’s job, too. If you’re raped at work, well what the fuck were you expecting? THAT’S A MAN’S JOB! And what about office work? Shit, that has always been a man’s job, only recently those pesky women managed to enter it. So if your boss says “fuck me or you lose your job”, well, leave your pride and dignity aside and either LEAVE OR FUCKING TAKE IT! Don’t even get me started about working at the stock market, all that testosterone in the air, the palpable tension…

        You’re right, men will be men, and what does it take to be a man, anyway? According to you, being a psychopath, a rapist and an utter imbecile. You don’t need to be Scherlock Holmes here to figure out spewing shit like that only legitimizes this kind of behavior.

    NFL athletes are classless sexual predators who prey on any female that comes in contact with them? The NFL covers it up so they can keep making millions of dollars? Surely you jest….

    Let’s face it… The Kurt Warner types are rare in the NFL….

    • Pass

      Since when did sending a classless txt make someone a predator? A guy found a girl attractive and wanted her phone number.. she gave it to him.. he sends her lame msgs trying to woo her.. since when is that sexual harrasment?

      • fap

        That’s not “wooing” that’s some dumbass trying to treat every woman he sees like a hooker. The woman he was trying to “woo” was already married, bad form just on that point alone.

        Now fuck off back to your .jpg girlfriend.

      • Be real

        Agreed. I am a woman. We don’t belong in men’s locker rooms. They don’t come into ours. NFL players are aggressive athletes, not gentlemen. If they were gentlemen, it would be soccer. Also, I have received inappropriate texts and advances from men before. I don’t file lawsuits. I say “what a d-bag” and move on. Which is exactly what would have happened if it wasn’t with someone famous.

    • GravyLeg

      Not to mention sending dick photos is hardly a simple text…

      When the douche is sending this crap to EVERY woman he comes in contact with I would say we have entered predator state.

      • crazypants

        Did Favre wrestle the women to the ground and snatch their cell phones out of their bags and steal their numbers and then send the a lame booty call text?

        Because unless the above happened – a man asked a woman for her number. She gave the number. The man used the number to ask for a date/sex.

        How is that harassment? Unless there are clear rules stating that there is to be absolutely no talking or eye-contact or fraternization of any sort between the NFL players and other employees or sub-contractors – how did Favre harass these adult women or break any rules?

        They give massages to naked men and women. Some of these men and women must ask for cell phone numbers, dates, sex regularly.

        Do these women sue every client who wants more than a massage?

        If they’re so offended by a client’s pass, do they just drop that client? If so, then drop the NFL as a client and case closed.

      • Pass

        Hey I’m all for treating women with respect. I pride myself on that.. I just think its going a little far to to call someone a ‘sexual predator’ and call it ‘sexual harrasment’ when he sends a few txts trying to talk someone into having sex. Do I think its classless and sleezy.. absolutely it is. But If you are allowed to sue him for it then you are allowed to sue every man and women in a bar who uses a sleezy pickup line.

      • S'up Bitches

        Hey Pass, the big diffference is that in a bar, if you rebuke a pass, it’s no big deal….move on. The reason Sexual Harrassment exists is to protect women in the work place from losing work simply because they rebuked a pass, which can cost them revenue and future clients. The Jets were clearly wrong in the way they handled this, and should pay up so these women will shut up. Favre was wrong too. He should have kept it out of the workplace and stuck to the strippers he’s been frequenting for the last couple decades (common knowledge in Wisconsin). Also heard he was an asshole though, so I’m not suprised.

    • Jennifer0213

      The point in these suits isn’t that the players themselves harassed women (although they did). The point is that the employer knew about it, didn’t do anything, and fired the women. That’s what sexual harassment suits are all about, not some guy you meet texting you and you not being interested.
      They’re fucking massage therapists, it’s their job to give people they work for their phone numbers. Come the fuck on. It’s not like having your physical therapist’s number is an invitation to ask them to have a threesome that, let’s face it, would probably cost them their job. Some women care more about keeping a job they like (and being an NFL masseuse probably pays better than being one at a random spa somewhere) than hooking up with as many hot athletes as possible…

  5. Cock Dr

    Any story with the headline “penis strikes again” will likely get my click.
    Alas, no more glamor shots of Brett’s lil one? That’s too bad; his last publicized photo session was not so flattering.

  6. Drew

    It’s hilarious that you people continue buying this shit up.

    Every time there’s a “scandal” with a celebrity, there’s always 5 wannabe Kim Kardashians there ready to cash in on it. This isn’t news.

  7. grumpy git

    Most everyone heres said what I thought. So a couple of years ago this guy sent a couple of texts to a woman asking to hook up. Only now is she complaining and trying to sue them. It’s pathetic. A ‘massage therapist’ is basically a whore anyway and sending them in to testerone filled men is just asking for trouble.

    Women belong in the kitchen and if they want to be treated as equals then they need to get their shit together and stop whininng everytime someone views them as a sex object.

    • grumpy git

      Next they’ll be suing because they didn’t get hit on and they feel all cut up about it!

    • fap

      I agree, women shouldn’t have to work at all. You guys need to work harder so you can afford to keep us all plushied up in the home like we should be.

  8. Mortimer Duke

    The timing is off. This should have come out when it happened. It all looks super fishy, although I do believe it to be true. Turns out Brett Favre was douchier than anyone thought.

    P.S. Did Wrangler drop him yet?

    • lisa

      Speaking as someone who has been harassed, I can tell you it takes a lot of balls to be that person who speaks up…or at list the FIRST person to speak up because:
      1. Most men like that are at least smart enough not to leave any evidence of
      their harassment. So its always just your word against theirs
      2. no one wants to be known by the co workers as an opportunistic whore
      because thats what people who don’t believe you will immediately call
      you). So they keep their mouth shuts thinking you can handle it on our own.

      • McFeely Smackup

        Speaking as someone who has done his fair share of harassing…keep your mouth shut you dirty whore.

    The timing of this is precious. Money grubbing whores. “Oh he treated me like a hanging slab of meat”, How else do you treat a pig?

  10. joho777

    What kind of happily married woman takes a job as a masseuse for a professional football team? And how can they be surprised if a player politely hints that he likes them?

    And why in the world did the ladies give the players their phone numbers??

    The texts that are quoted her are not predatory. Why didn’t the women just delete them? Or report them to management if they were truly offended?

    These texts and opinions are not evidence of any crimes. Theysound just like an athlete who found the woman rubbing him down (and her looks and comments) to be attractive.

  11. Ish KaBibble

    They are suing because:

    (a) They were harassed.

    (b) Their employer did not deal properly with their complaints.

    (c) They lost work.

    And they are suing now because (d) They suddenly have a hell of a lot of credibility

    • McFeely Smackup

      a) may be debatable, but you’re just making up b) and c).

      they didn’t make complaints at the time so there was nothing for their employer to act on, and the fact that they lost work is therefore unrelated to complaints that they didn’t make.

    WTF NFL people… Hasn’t ANYONE learned something from the Tiger Woods ordeal? There is no punanay worth millions… NONE. Idiots…

  13. Crabby Old Guy

    Poor Brett. Now his future is nothing but riding his tractor around and trying avoid the long-suffering Deanna’s fury. His daughters must be so proud.

  14. The Original Shawn

    So is it some cosmic irony that Favre wore a purple helmet in the final days of his career?

  15. Ron Mexico

    The one thing I completely disagree with – if a woman brings forward a claim WHEN IT HAPPENS, and gets fired, laid off, not hired again, etc – THEY WOULD OWN THE TEAM. Bringing it forward two years later stinks of trying to get rich via the new american dream – Lawsuit lottery!!

    • OWN THE TEAM? In exactly what world would that happen? If it’s one woman with a single complaint reporting it right away then it never happened because there’s no pattern of bad behavior on the alleged harasser’s part. If three women come forward, then they’re all jumping on the bandwagon and making it up for the money. Because God forbid that your fave athletic hero should turn out to be a douchebag.
      Did you get laid off the Tiger Woods Excuse Team? Because your game still needs work.

  16. Can’t even retire without getting intercepted.

  17. Rough of virtue

    Can someone he actually banged come forward? This dude is an absolute disgrace and nothing to show for it…At least Tiger Woods can have a smile on his face…

    • s'up bitches

      Heroin fueled strippers usually die young, and are too out of it to come forward. Brett should have stuck with them. Chmura learned that lesson.

  18. Rough of virtue

    “He treated her like a hanging slab of meat”

    Who was getting the deep tissue massage here? I’m confuse…

  19. Mr Obvious

    Brett, Tiger, and Kobe… just pay for it, seriously. Nevada is a plane trip away and those girls know how to keep their mouth shut.

  20. I betcha that’s the last time Brett will text a masseause for a happy ending … Oh, not THAT kind of masseuse huh?

    2 years after the fact and they step forward. They step forward only AFTER the Jenn Sterger allegations. They were fired and they didn’t stepo forward. What did they have to lose AFTER being fired? Nothing. So why not step forward then and put in a harrasment complaint claiming their firing was illegal? Instead, they wait 2 freaking years. Who the heck keeps texts around for 2 years anyhow??? Sounds just plain wrong.

  21. Cowboy Bertram

    Hitting on someone is not harassment. Repeatedly hitting on somebody who has clearly indicated a desire not to be hit on is. I have seen nothing to suggest that any of these women told Brett “don’t hit on me”. I suspect they enjoyed the attention from a major football hero until it became profitable to not.

    And when it becomes illegal for the starting QB to hit on the scantily clad female support staff, then that becomes an America in which I no longer wish to reside.

    • Ron Mexico

      Exactly. If they rejected his advances and he continued, that is harrasment.

      Ifthey complained to the JETS and were fired – thats illegal.

      If they could prove a&b they should have sue’d the very next day and would have owned the Jets. Bringing this up now stinks of lawsuit lottery.

  22. anonymous

    just when brett finally gets interesting….NOW he retires.

  23. This is ridiculous!

    If these ladies did this 2 years ago, then it might look legit. However, waiting two years seems like BS. Also, all he did was send some texts, neither of which sounded like harassment to me (I’m a woman). He’s Brett Favre – most women probably say yes to him, so why wouldn’t he try. There are women who are truly sexually harassed, and these massage therapists, with their phony claims, make it harder for the women who are actually harassed to be taken seriously. What a shame.

  25. brett texted me his dick too so what

  26. Is it still considered harassment if you have a really great cock?

  27. CJ

    The text messages are hilarious. They sound like canned sexual responses from a guy wearing 90′s shades, a leather coat, and too tight jeans.

  28. williamswreckingcrew

    Favre is an awesome QB, his O-line didnt protect him this year, he had no good receivers (except Harvin) he fought through a million injuries and had an awful coach until Childress was fired. If he could heal up, he would be great again next year, IF they got a better O-line. We don’t know if these things with the TEXTS happened, but we all follow it, cuz we are addicted to GOSSIP, me included, admit it.
