Favre fined $50,000

By Marc A. Greenberg

The NFL has fined Brett Favre $50,000 for a “failure to cooperate” with the Jenn Sterger investigation in which Favre was alleged to have sent inappropriate messages and lewd photos.

The league issued a statement saying that Commissioner Roger Goodell “could not conclude” that Favre violated the league’s personal conduct policy based on the evidence currently available, and that Favre was “not candid in several respects during the investigation resulting in a longer review and additional negative public attention for Favre, (Jenn) Sterger and the NFL.”
