Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

NFL.com news: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brett Favre stepped up to the podium after a discouraging loss to the New York Jets and spent about 20 minutes evading questions the same way he tried to avoid tacklers.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback was asked several times after Monday night's 29-20 loss to the New York Jets to discuss the NFL's investigation into allegations that he sent racy messages and lewd photos to a Jets game hostess in 2008.
Each time, the three-time MVP did not address the topic. He said he was disappointed his team lost the game and his only focus had been on trying to beat the Jets.
Asked if the allegations against him are true or false, a tight-lipped Favre said: "If you want to talk about what happened in the football game tonight, I'd love to."

------------

Way he's avoiding it makes me think he did it. Thoughts?

Of course he did it.

If he was innocent he'd be up there ranting and raving about how ridiculous the allegations are and how hey've affected his family.

That seems more correct to me. I think the timing of this is way too convenient. Regardless of whether or not he did it (and I think he did), it seems like the Jets have found another way to be a bunch of meat heads.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

Agreed Sabby.

I will never understand why people are shocked or surprised every single time that a star athlete a. has a sex scandel, b. gets a dui, c. beats his wife/gf/etc. Have people seriously not gotten the memo that this is what happens to some people when they have tons of money thrown at them, when they have had people pander to them for the majority of their lives just because they can run fast or throw a ball far? These people become incredibly arogant and feel they are above it all.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

Why did it take two years though to reveal the scandal? It's not as if he threatened to kill her. If it turns out Favre did not do it, then we can chalk it up towards a money grabbing scheme

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

Why is who Brett Favre did-or-did not send pictures to our business? There are three people whom it concerns, Brett Favre, his wife, and the girl making the allegations. Not my business, not your business, not some random, overweight, drunkard, Russian fantasy football player's business.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

It's the business of ther NFL and the NY Jets as they can be sued for condoning a workplace that contains sexual herassment.

It's the business of ESPN because they report sporting news.

On a personal level, it is not. But on a public level it is. Because Brett Favre, or any public figure, whether they are an athlete, entertainer, or politician has chosen to make a career out of being in the public eye, then they do lose a degree of privacy. Because the average joe pays money to see these people perform their trade, they are held to a higher standard and ultimately, have to be held accountable for their actions if their conduct is unbecoming. It is for these reasons that Tiger Woods and Ben Rothelsberger (sp) still have to answer questions and put up with the heckles concerning their conduct. It is the same for Clinton/Lewinsky.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

I disagree. I think Favre should answer for it because it involved someone else in the industry but other than that it should be a personal matter. For example, I don't think anyone needs to know about Tiger being a douche to his wife, it has nothing to do with golf. The only reason people think they should lose privacy is because we expect it, doesn't make it right. People need to mind their own damn business.

Btw the Clinton thing is a great example. Why is it everyone elses business? It does not effect his job or the american people if he got it on with a staffer. His wife didn't even leave him but people thought he should be impeached for it? I find it ridiculous.

You mean Nixon? That's not a fair comparison at all. Nixon was actually breaking the law. Clinton was breaking his marriage vows.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

DB, stop and consider that his indiscretion almost cost him his job. If Congress didn't get him, the voters would have. It's still a big deal if a celebrity or public figure gets caught cheating on a spouse or girlfriend.

You think the Nixon and Clinton were the only two presidents that tried to hide something? And you think a BJ and planting wire taps in the office of the guy you are running against for president are equal?

What if you were caught cheating DB? (I know you won't cheat btw) It would probably be public or asked about and told to because you're a staple between R and U.

That's not what I'm saying at all, Kong. The POINT is it doesn't matter how much less it is our business. In both cases, neither could keep it from being released, could they?

It almost cost him his job because he lied to stay popular. It had zero to actually do with his job as president. If people were more mature and minded their business it wouldn't matter to anyone but his family. Same goes for other high profile people, it's no ones business but their own. The exception being if it's directly related to their work and/or public life.

Btw Clinton actually became more popular once he admitted what he did. People still love him to this day regardless of it(and maybe because of it a little).

But that doesn't matter. That's just busy bodies getting attention or getting paid because other people wanna see into people private lives. Doesn't make it right.

Unless it was with someone from RU it would not be anyones business and I'd be very insulted and pissed off if people thought it was cool to discuss it. Personal lives are to be respected, right?

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

Okay, but neither does it make it right if the allegations are made by a liar. One too many times these allegations turned out to be lies. The incident with Kobe, for instance.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

Was the Kobe thing actually false? I don't care about this kind of thing or sports so I kinda tuned out. I do remember an alleged rape case where the group of college kids(hockey team?) were later revealed to be totally innocent. Well, as innocent as a bunch of guys hiring a hooker can be.

Re: Favre won't address allegations after loss to Jets

Yes, it was. Then you have the Duke case where a bunch of lacrosse players were accused of rape, probably the specific case you just alluded to.

Well yeah that's different. If anyone was caught cheating it would be totally understandable to talk about it. That's not the same thing as talking about someones personal life, these are just games.

Yes it was that one, thanks. I remember that being huge news for a while and then tons of people felt stupid for demonizing the guys involved.
