Goodell: NFL Wrapping Up Favre-Sterger Investigation

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is close to announcing whether the league will punish Brett Favre for sending inappropriate photos and phone messages to  former New York Jets game hostess Jenn Sterger.

Goodell said Wednesday he received the league’s report about the case “last week and I expect that some time in the near future I will make a decision.”

Asked if that would come by the end of the season, he said, “I expect that, yes.”

The NFL is examining whether Favre sent Jenn Sterger messages and photos in 2008, while he was playing for the Jets and she also worked for the team.

Now with Minnesota, Favre, whose record consecutive starts streak ended at 297 on Monday night because of a shoulder injury, could face disciplinary action under the league’s personal conduct policy.

Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, has said his client would like the league to “implement a program” to prevent unwanted advances — similar to those she’s alleging Favre made.

Reese said Sterger wants the league to discipline Favre before his career ends. “It’s not a money story,” Reese said, adding his client’s goal is some acknowledgment that Favre was in the wrong.

Favre has said this season will be his last.

    I can’t believe what a joke Roger has made out of this whole situation. He needs to step down and let someone who will face and deal with issues in a timely manner. Did Farve pay him off?
    This whole thing is disgusting and Goodell is doing nothing but trying to put this off so he won’t have to deal with it al all….
    We need someone who is a leader! Someone who will deal with issues and not role over for people who think they are “super stars”!
    Roger is as big of a loser as Brett is…..
