Favre avoids questions on Sterger
At the postgame news conference after losing to the Jets 29-20, QB Brett Favre avoided all questions about his texting scandal with Jen Sterger when Favre was with the Jets.
“I said what I had to say,” Favre said after a series of questions. “I am disappointed that we lost this football game. If you want to talk about football, I can’t say I’d love to talk about football. … But, once again, it is disappointing that we lost.”
The NFL, which is investigating the allegations against the quarterback, have been provided all information possible by the Jets, according to an NFL spokesman.
Jesse Derris, a spokesman for the Jets, told HLN’s “Prime News” that the team has no role in the allegations against Favre, who played one season in New York and now plays for the Minnesota Vikings.
“Let’s talk about Randy Moss’ touchdown catch. I’d love to do that. Or Percy Harvin. Does anybody want to ask about Percy?” Favre asked.
A.J. Daulerio, Deadspin’s editor-in-chief, told CNN on Monday that no one from the NFL has contacted him about an investigation into Favre. He admitted that third-party sources were paid for the story about Sterger, and that he can’t say definitively that the messages or photos the site posted came from the 41-year-old quarterback.
