Jenn Sterger to FINALLY Discuss Brett Favre Sexting Saga Publicly

sterger

The time has come for one of the biggest media sensations of 2010. The Jenn Sterger-Deadspin-Brett Favre sexting saga will rekindle itself in the NFL consciousness as Sterger, the former New York Jets in stadium hostess will go public with her side of the story.

It was very difficult to not type “pubic” in that previous sentence where I wrote “public.” An honest mistake given that the subject matter is dong pictures of the former Jets, Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers QB. This exclusive will be the first time she’s talked since the scandal broke.

Jenn Sterger Making Public Appearance in Chicago Friday Night

Rejoice Second City denizens, a woman who first became famous for her two silicone best friends, and then later legitimately famous for becoming a geriatric NFL quarterback’s object of lust, is making a public appearance here in Chicago during the height of college basketball hysteria.

Jenn Sterger, the “surger” of web traffic for sports blogs everywhere canceled her public appearance in The Chi a couple months ago, due to that whole Brett Favre sexting saga- you might have heard a thing or two about it. However, on Friday she’s making one of her first major public appearances since that story that wouldn’t die.

Was Brett Favre’s Career Ended by Bears Rookie Corey Wootton?

wootton

Last night Chicago Bears rookie Defensive End Corey Wootton ended Brett Favre‘s night by thunderously slamming the Minnesota Vikings 41-year-old quarterback to the ground during the second quarter.

Favre’s head injury and concussion like symptoms forced him out of the game and may have ended his NFL career too. To quote Comedy Central’s Tosh.0, “and for that (Mr. Wootton) we thank you.”

So did the first year lineman out of Northwestern University just become a potential answer to an inevitable future trivia question?

“I knew it was the last home game,” Favre said after the Bears trounced the Vikings, 40-14, to clinch the NFC North title at the Siberian setting of TCF Bank Stadium.

Jenn Sterger Sexting Saga: Story that Possibly Dies Today?

sterger

So the day after the New York Jets got utterly destroyed by their bitterest of division rivals, the New England Patriots, more negative publicity surrounding the Jets organization. The supposed workplace filled with sexual harassment news complements the incompetence they showed playing football in Foxborough, Massachusetts last night during the NFL’s marquee regular season game.

Despite the story breaking in October, (well actually breaking in August, just no one paid attention to Deadspin’s story back then, dispute Deadspin being a very high traffic blog owned by Gawker Media) the Jenn Sterger-Brett Favre-Sexting Saga still rolls on strong. In case you forgot, here’s a quick refresher.

And now today, according to TMZ.com:

Favre could get word any day now about potential punishment for allegedly sending Jenn Sterger photos of his penis while he was with the New York Jets … and she was working as the team’s stadium host.

Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, believes she “provided extensive evidence that irrefutably proves there was harassment” — and adds, “No matter what happens Jenn has all legal remedies, including going public … if the NFL doesn’t clear her name.”

Jenn Sterger Finally Meets with NFL Regarding Favre Situation

jenn sterger

Well, FINALLY! It’s about time former New York Jets sideline host Jenn Sterger met with the NFL to discuss the sexting “scandal” of Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre. You remember that story, correct?

It broke well over a month ago. Actually, the story that ignited a media firestorm truly broke back in August, but the mainstream media was just too snooty to report on something published on a “blog” back then.

But we live in a Brave New World today, and Deadspin sort of played the role of Woodward and Bernstein (in a sports blog sense) on this one. And a lot has happened to Sterger during her time outside the limelight. She lost both her gig (her show on Versus, “The Daily Line” was canceled) and her title as Crown Princess of NFL Trashiness. Cowboys Stadium Lap Dance Girl (see video here) has supplanted her. At least in my humble little opinion.

Jenn Sterger’s TV Show CANCELLED

sterger

Jenn Sterger currently finds herself in the middle of a highly publicized NFL investigation regarding her back and forth texting relationship with Brett Favre. Hopefully, that matter will end soon. But despite all the press, Sterger’s star is not rising. Certainly not enough to help her now canceled television show “The Daily Line” on Versus.

At first, I thought TDL had potential. It was the first sports talking head show to actually feature bloggers and gear content towards them. Sterger’s bit on the show was even called “Jenny from the Blogs.” But then the program’s format strayed away from the internet, and ratings suffered.

TDL  reached out to sports blogs and invited them to send questions in to the show’s four panelists, and they would answer them in video. The Sports Bank was one of those blogs, and you can watch that Q & A here.  Three of the four  panelists answered their questions. (Take a big guess which one personality did not!)

I,  like most sports fans, quickly grew tired of the show, ratings suffered and it got axed.

So, what will the future hold for Sterger?

Favre Wrangler Parody Video: SNL Actually Does Something Funny!

favre wrangler

For years, I’ve said that Saturday Night Live has been show executed like the jokes were written by and geared towards 13-year-old girls. Nothing against the Hannah Montana worshiping set, but SNL has been so unfunny and dull for so long…unless it was a music video with Andy Samberg. His compilation with Justin Timberlake pretty much owned the internet in December 2006.

Likewise in 2008, when Samberg teamed up with Jorma Taccone.

And with their take on the current Sterger-Sexting-Favre scandal, SNL once again rmeinds us that they have this penis humor thing down pat.

Ever wonder why Wrangler keeps running those ads of the Minnesota Vikings QB non-stop? The blue-jeans company might reconsider how ridiculous they look after seeing this.

Btw, supposedly Jenn Sterger‘s agent has claimed they’ll take hush money, and Favre has admitted to phoning her, but not pics. So the matter should get more definitive this week, and the NFL is hoping it’s all resolved within 7-10 days.

BREAKING: Brett Favre Attempted to Contact Jenn Sterger Last Year

sterger

Like I said a week ago, the Jenn StergerBrett Favre NFL investigation into the sexting scandal is just getting warmed up. Usually, we as a nation lose interest in any story in about 7-10 days, but it appears this one is going to go all Tiger Woods on us. If you’re sick of it, well dig in because it’s going to outlast the usual media cycle.

If you’re a Minnesota Vikings fan, brace yourself, because the distractions are only just getting started.

Jenn Sterger Releases Statement, not Pursuing Sexual Harrasment Case

jenn_sterger

As NFL writer Peter King reported earlier this week, Jenn Sterger will not likely pursue sexual harassment charges regarding the Brett Favre sexting scandal. Of course, proving that harassment at work could be difficult, as most sexual harassment cases involve situations that revolve around the chain of command in the workplace, and abuses of power. The New York Jets will try to circumvent that claim by saying Sterger is an independent contractor, not a full-time employee. And also that Favre’s position with the company had no direct power over Sterger’s position with the organization.

Of course, harassment can also include repeated unwanted sexual advances, an uncomfortable work environment, inappropriate workplace behavior etc. And there’s plenty of evidence there. But it appears Sterger will not go that route. She’s been extremely silent and stayed of the limelight this week. She even cancelled her public appearance yesterday at the local Chicago bar and grille “The Bull and Bear.” 

And she has declined comment on Deadspin, the Minnesota Vikings QB, sexting etc. until yesterday.

Favre Sexual Harassment Scandal Going all the Way to the top?

favre-deadspin

It appears that Jenn Sterger was just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re getting sick of hearing about Sterger, Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre, Deadspin, sexting etc. well that’s just too bad, because we’re (to quote Al Pacino in “Scent of a Woman”) “just getting warmed up.”

Today, the media is buzzing about the fact that two more independent contractors hired by the New York Jets, a pair of massage therapists, saved the voicemail evidence that will damn Favre, and may be willing to come forward with it.

In other words, the NFL already has a Ben Roethlisberger type situation on their hands, but it could blow up into a full-fledged Tiger Woods. As we learned with Woods, once a couple of women come out of the woodwork, many others can quickly soon follow.

Favre-Sterger Sexting Scandal Achieves Mainstream Media Coverage

jenn sterger

I really wasn’t sure if the Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger sexting scandal would get picked up the mainstream media. Sure, it’s plenty newsworthy, but given what I know of the sports promotional firm known as ESPN, and the horrible precedent they set within the industry, I figured the MSM might drop the ball once again. I thought it could be the sports media equivalent of the news media handling the run-up to the Iraq war.

Remember that? In 2002-03, the media establishment’s coverage of the upcoming Iraq invasion might be summed by this sentence:

“Everything Bush/Cheney/Condi/Rummy says is 100% right, never to be questioned, and if you don’t want to go to war this exact second you are a terrorist/communist/nazi/spineless pansy.”

And since the Minnesota Vikings QB is the closest thing we have to a sacrosanct omnipotent being in the NFL/sports, I was worried it would happen again.

Glad I’m wrong.
