Minnesota Vikings quarterback and new Deadspin reader Brett Favre has been de-pantsed by the NFL. Sort of. One report indicated that Favre’s popular ad for Wrangler jeans, which was in heavy rotation for much of the season, did not air at all during NFL telecasts yesterday.
Favre reportedly has been cooperating with the NFL’s investigation of Favre’s alleged transmissions of cell phone messages and penile images to Jennifer Sterger, who was a New York Jets employee at the time Favre played for that team. Sterger, according to one televised ESPN report, has not met with the NFL and has been “uncooperative.” I suspect she’s just playing hard-to-get. No, that’s a joke. Sexual harassment in the workplace is bad. Unless she’s hot. Dammit! Also.
