Not long after Brett Favre declined to comment on the allegations saying he sent racy messages and naked photos to Jenn Sterger in 2008, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback briefly discussed the situation with ESPN's "Monday Night Football" crew.
"My main focus is the New York Jets, they are a tough team; as good as they are that has been my focus," Favre told ESPN at a production meeting. "I hate in any way if this has been a distraction as I said Thursday -- we are here focused on trying to beat the Jets."
When asked about the accuracy of the reports on Deadspin, Favre reportedly issued a cryptic response: "That will take its course."
On Friday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league was investigating the situation. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that after its investigation, the league will determine whether Favre violated the personal conduct policy.
Deadspin posted a story on Thursday saying that when Favre played for the Jets, he sent voicemails and photos of his penis to Jenn Sterger, a Jets game hostess at the time. The website also reported that Favre pursued two female massage therapists who worked for the team.
