NEW YORK (CBS) The manager of Jenn Sterger, the sports reporter who, according to allegations published on the sports blog Deadspin, received lewd messages from quarterback Brett Favre, commented on the NFL's ongoing investigation Tuesday.
According to ESPN, Phil Reese released the following statement from Sterger:
"This is something that allegedly happened two years ago. We don't want a quick resolution, but the proper resolution."
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell previously said that once the NFL completes its investigation, the league will "make a determination" if Favre should be punished.
If Favre is found to have violated the NFL's conduct policy, he could be fined or suspended.
Crimesider spoke to CBS News legal analyst Trent Copeland, who said that even though "Favre is a hall of fame-caliber quarterback, at the end of the day, he's an employee." And just like any other employee, says Copeland, he's supposed to follow the rules and regulations of his employer, especially regarding the treatment of other employees.
The texts were allegedly sent by Favre to Sterger, then a sideline reporter employed by the New York Jets, while Favre played for that team.
Deadspin also reports that Favre also pursued two team massage therapists while he was playing for the Jets.
According to one of the masseuses, the incident happened in 2008 during training camp at Hofstra University, says the site.
