Reporter Jenn Sterger Pressures NFL to Discipline Favre

The Associated Press reports that a spokesman from former New York Jet's hostess Jenn Sterger's said if the NFL disciplines Favre, she will not file a lawsuit. Sterger claims that Favre sent her innappropriate text messages and voicemails in 2008, while they were both employed by the New York Jets.

The New York Daily News reports that the Jets senior team manager of operations Aaron Degernes, helped Brett Favre connect with Sterger. Favre allegedly enlisted Degereness top help him obtain Sterger's phone number. If this is true, Degerness could emerge as an important figure in the case if Sterger files a lawsuit. Joseph Conway, Sterger's attorney, could call Degerness as a witness in an attempt to prove that Jets employees were aware of and facilitated Favre's behavior.

The New York Daily News also reports that Jets senior media relations manager Jared Winley has also been linked to the scandal. Deadspin posted a MySpace message that was allegedly sent by Favre to Sterger, "Jared Winley works in Pr for Jets he will either slip you my # of ask for yours."

The Associated Press reports that Phil Reese, Sterger's manager, said Thursday that she would like to see the league "implement a program" to prevent unwanted advances, like those that she claims Favre made on her. Reese said that Sterger wants the league to discipline Favre before he retires.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell won't suspend Favre for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He also stated that the league may not even sanction him because the league's investigators have not been able to prove "beyond the shadow of doubt" that Favre sent the X-rated picture.

The New York Daily News reports NFL investigators may be running out of time because Favre told reporters last week that he would definitely retire at the end of the season. The league will not have the jurisdiction to discipline Favre if he retires before the investigation is complete.

The Associated Press reports Sterger's attorney said the NFL has finished its investigation and sent the findings to NFL Commissioner and the league lawyers for review. The NFL is not commenting on the current status of the investigation.
