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.

    lets keep the fine in perspective. It is equal to a $200.00 fine for the average working guy. Brett spills more than the fine amount after each game

    Now the NFL is complete with all the felons and murderers. Everything from rapists, murderers, drug dealers, thieves, dog killers, and now thanks to Favre, perverts too. Hey I have an idea........instead of the Pro Bowl we could have Con bowl.

    Do we think that Favre could get monkeys behind less about paying a fine for what he did? Hell, that's his lunch money on a bad day. This has been a very bad year for the Jets with a lot of bull crap happening. NFL is not investigating criminal acts? They are passing out fines for embarrassing the NFL period. Let the cops worry about crime incidents they report to them. He is on his way out of the sport finally. he should done this a long time ago. Maybe it could have save him some of his tax money he now has to pay out in fines. When we get older we get hornier...the neeeeeed for those young gals to keep us in football longer giving us strength. Better than those little blue pills. Ain't that right, Favre!

    So Brett was this play a Hail Mary Pass Or an End Run ? Too much resistance goung up the middle? Looks like they got you for Off sides, but not the holding. Would have been a lot cheeper and more rewarding if you had taken her to Diner, A movie, A night on the town,A Caribbean Cruise, A trip to Paris, thats how to start a meaningful relationship.

    Brett favre was, is and always will be a pos. He drank too much in atlanta, was a pillhead in green bay and a little d**k in new jersey. Although from the pictures it seems he was always a little d**k.
