"The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger."

Aw, come on! Did they examine his penis and compare it to the picture? Yes, the picture may have been fuzzy... but maybe his penis is fuzzy.

Favre has to pay $50,000 anyway, because he "was not candid in several respects during the investigation." Either he failed to cover up in the first instance or he inappropriately covered up in the second.

My thought on "Forensic Analysis" was on their ability to track the cell phone records from his phone to her phone. That, given all the freaking out going on by the "Black Helicopter Crowd" and soon-to-be ex-Senator Russ Feingold about FISA is mind-blowing to me.

Someone's full of it on the issue of cell phone tracking and I'm really leaning towards the NFL.

Meade said...

It's always the cover up, right? I can't remember - my memory is... fuzzy.

He certainly could afford the proper medications for that fuzz.

Reminds me of Porky's.

Jenn Sterger (the woman) was hired because of some sexy pictures of her in Sports Illustrated mag, that Brent Musberger thought would be a good matchup for the male dominated football sports sceen. Jenn and Brent are just as much at fault here. I'm thinking of sending the woman a picture of my penis also. Could I borrow the fish bowl lens?

Bring on the sketch artist ;)

I blame the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Since she obviously told.

Hire a stripper to hang around NFL players.... what could go wrong?

FWIW Did the NFL brass really think he'd confess? In the words of an old guy I know.... "I don't care if they have pictures... Deny, deny, deny"

Meade said...

AllenS,

It's a fish eye lens. Fish eye.

It's for taking shots of massive objects or scenes which a normal lens can't take all in.

A fish bowl lens would be for taking shots of tiny things. Like Brett Favre's... ability to make good judgments.

It depends on what the meaning of the word 'penis' is.

rdkraus said...

Penis.

A great word.

Fun to say.

Great jokes.

Penis. Word of the year.

AllenS said...

Ok, ok. Can I borrow the lens that makes stuff look bigger?

New "Hussein" Ham said...

Seeing as how Brett Favre's contract was worth $20 million in 2010 alone, a $50,000 fine is a signal to all the other members of the National Felons League that harassing women is OK.

It only costs $50,000 and that's a fucking pittance to these people.

Players in the NFL routinely spend $50,000 a night in clubs to arrange to have high-class prostitutes ... er ... rather dancers and models ... yeah that's the ticket ... in attendance.

Tiger Woods tipped the iceberg. There is an entire industry of "models" and "dancers" taking care of our nation's elite millionaire sports figures and billionaire industrialists.

Just ask August Busch IV about what you can get away with when hiring a "model."

Women are objects and these rich fat cats know the best way to keep your millions and billions is to rent them.

Never buy when you can lease.

Uh... yeah... hold on, we're, uh, using it right now.

LOL. Way funny.

After much investigation, it turns out to be "no big thing". Happy retirement, Mr Farve.

peter hoh said...

Clyde, did she tell, or was Favre intercepted, again?

Calypso Facto said...

USA Today asks if Favre got off too lightly. But perhaps the pic of Jenn Sterger they use to accompany the article somehow works against their thesis?

A $50,000 fine for a pic that Brett may or may not have sent of what may or may not be his junk to a woman who may or may not have been flirting with him (but was definitely using her sexuality to [successfully!] advance her career) seems sufficient, no?

As opposed to too often?

Sixty Grit said...

Might be a fish bowl lens, depends upon where one is standing when the picture is taken.

You don't pay them for sex, you pay them to leave. May God bless all the skanks and ho-doggies in the new year.

cubanbob said...

Brett ought to sue the NFL for $50,000,00.
Whether he did or did not send the skank the photos is not their business. Honestly the league needs to get it's ass kicked. Enough of the freeloading off the taxpayers with their subsidized stadiums and other breaks.

garage mahal said...

Great post Green Bay career you got going there, Brett. Bet the girls in your family are quite proud of Dad.

Crimso said...

"but maybe his penis is fuzzy."

Thanks for the visual, Althouse.

Crimso said...

Couldn't you have called an audible instead?

edutcher said...

Next post on the subject, "Let's take a closer look...".

Hey, they never got Willie, and his is supposed to be really unique.

hawkeyedjb said...

Ham is right, 50K isn't even pocket change to these guys, it's like pennies on the sidewalk that aren't worth stooping for. And thanks to all those stadium subsidies, it's Taxpayer Pennies! Yes, suckers, this is what your tax dollars are used for...

Maguro said...

Is there anyone more full of shit than Roger Goodell? A "forensic analysis" of this case should take about 20 minutes - Look at Sterger's phone, see the number that the cock pictures came from, then find out if it was Favre's phone number. Not that the league should really care about it anyway, but still.

chickelit said...

The penis...
...mightier than the sword.

former law student said...

The idea that a 41 year old man would think that a 25 year old woman would want to see a picture of his junk disturbs me. Even There's Something About Mary did not stretch the limits of age-appropriateness, much less good taste -- Cameron Diaz would have been a more realistic 36 in 2008.

Applying the same age ratio to Favre, I doubt he would want a 67 year old woman to send him a picture of her naked hoo-ha.

Ann Althouse said...

"Hey, they never got Willie, and his is supposed to be really unique."

They looked at Michael Jackson's penis (as evidence, when he was accused).

Ann Althouse said...

"Look at Sterger's phone, see the number that the cock pictures came from, then find out if it was Favre's phone number."

I'm guessing they did that, but Favre denied that it was him. Someone else could have swiped his phone and taken a picture of someone else's body. Therefore the evidence was inconclusive. Just guessing.

Ann Althouse said...

"The idea that a 41 year old man would think that a 25 year old woman would want to see a picture of his junk disturbs me."

Which is reasoning that supports the inference that he didn't do it.

One should always be careful when dealing with a "hostess."

"One should always be careful when dealing with a "hostess."

Or perhaps not. More solid footing for a Hostess Twinkie Defense.

Crimso said...

He should just admit he did it and then say his endeavor is called DikiLeaks. Instant favor and forgiveness from the left.

KLDAVIS said...

It's more than likely the "forensic analysis" referred to is digital, not phalic (as Kevin suggests in post 1). I deal with computer/cellular forensics on a daily basis. The retention period or format for text/picture messages is not standardized across the industry, and is usually very brief (days or weeks). The service providers would have been a dead end in this case. If the sending & receiving phones didn't still have the photos on them, there's no likelihood of any decent evidence being recovered. Even if the phones retained the photos, cell phone data is extremely sensitive to spoliation and relatively easy to manipulate. So, it's a convenient position for the NFL to take, as it's entirely defensible.

Well, Brett Farve.

This is a Hitler/Stalin kind of thing don't ya think?
