A spokesman for the cheerleader-turned-sexy-sideline-reporter released a statement saying, "We can confirm that a meeting took place with the NFL today and we cooperated fully by providing them with substantial materials in our possession. We await the NFL's investigation to be concluded."

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke before last night's nationally televised game, saying, "I think what you have to do is be fair. You have to try to get all the facts and make a smart decision."

The question now is when any decision about possible punishment for Favre comes down.

Remi Spencer, a former prosecutor told CBS News, "The NFL is obligated to pursue this and make sure they determine what the proper course of action is. They can't ignore it."

As there are only seven weeks left in the football season, if the NFL is slow to decide - and Favre sticks to his new plan to retire - he might not suffer any game-related consequences.
