NFL fines Brett Favre $50,000

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was fined $50,000 by the National Football League for failing to cooperate with an investigation into whether he sent sexually explicit messages to women, the league said Wednesday.

However, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, based on the evidence available, "could not conclude that Favre violated league policies relating to workplace conduct," the league said.

Favre was alleged to have sent inappropriate messages to Jenn Sterger, a female employee of the New York Jets while he was on the Jets roster in 2008.

"The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger," the league's statement said.

It also said Sterger had not engaged in any inappropriate activity.

    I do not care for Favre, but if you google Sterger she shows a lot of everything. She does not leave anything to the imagination, I think Brett was trying to reciprocate! If a woman shows that much skin & her profession is massaging people for a living, what will people expect? This is one crazy world we live in, I only feel sorry for Brett's wife who has been battling cancer

    Terrible end to a terrible year. I always rooted for him but you know this was a tough year on him. He hasn't had fun w/the sport in a few seasons now. A trait he was known for. Too bad he didn't end it last season when he finished one game shy of the Super Bowl and in the running for league MVP. Christopher Dycha
