Favre declines comment on meeting with NFL

By Marc A. Greenberg

Speaking on a conference call with reporters in Green Bay ahead of Sunday night’s Vikings-Packers game, Vikings Quarterback Brett Favre called the NFL’s investigation into his alleged behavior a “league matter.” Minutes later, he also declined to answer a series of questions about the situation in his weekly Wednesday news conference with Minnesota media.

“That’s a league issue,” Favre said, “that I just have to leave at that.”

Favre met with NFL vice president for security Milt Ahlerich on Tuesday about his alleged advances toward then-Jets game emcee Jenn Sterger two years ago, when Favre played for New York.

Favre brushed off a question about whether the situation has weighed on him, insisting it was instead the “front five for Dallas” that weighed on him last week. He said this week his “focus is solely on Green Bay.”

Asked why he hasn’t denied the allegations, Favre said: “The one thing I’m going to say is that’s something that’s within the league, and I’ll just have to leave it at that — let that process work itself out.”
