The NFL are now investigating the Vikings' quarterback Brett Favre over the scandal that has seen the sports star accused of sending X-rated pictures and voicemails to a pitch-side reporter, according to CBS News. The National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will "make a determination" as to whether Favre should be punished for his actions.
Phone messages were allegedly sent from Favre to JENN STERGER, a side-line reporter employed by the New York Jets while the quarterback was playing for the team at that time. Favre's current team, The Vikings, are set to play the Jets in New York tonight (11th October 2010). CBS News legal analyst Trent Copeland, said, although Favre is considered a hall of fame-calibre quarterback , "at the end of the day, he's an employee". Speaking at halftime during the Chargers versus Raiders game on Sunday 10th October, commissioner Goodell said the NFL are 'making sure they have all the facts', before making a decision.
Favre has been married to his wife, Deanna, for 14 years, while 26-year-old Sterger is now presenting on the sports-orientated cable channel 'Versus'.
