More on the Brett Favre sexting scandal “Dong-gate” and there are MORE GIRLS!October 12, 2010
By now you’ve seen Deadspin and it has recently posted videos that are allegedly of Brett Favre’s dong. (Don’t click that link/watch the video if don’t want to see pictures of Favre’s peeps)
In the video here (parts of which are NSFW due to penis photos at 2:08 mark), you’ll see and hear all the strange messages Jenn Sterger received from someone she was led to believe was Brett Favre.
This is the evidence she told us about last February. Sadly, Jenn is still reluctant to talk on the record about the matter. Everything shown in the above video was acquired from a third party.
And, yes, there’s a possibility that the person communicating with Jenn was not actually Brett Favre, but rather someone trying very hard to appear to be him. But let’s look at the evidence: For an individual to put forth the effort to 1.) acquire a cellphone with a Mississippi area code; 2.) take some voice lessons; and 3.) implicate Jets handlers and perhaps other people, all within a very short period of time and for no discernible reason other than to mess with Sterger, well, that’s some very aggressive role-playing. Jenn believed it to be him. Others believed it to be him. We’ve seen far too many supposedly family-oriented and upstanding professional athletes whose off-field behavior contradicts their well-manicured public persona. If Sterger is right, Brett Favre really is like a kid out there.
It’s been reported that a Jets PR man acted as a liason for the Dongslinger’s encounter:
According to documents we’ve obtained, Jenn Sterger was contacted by Brett Favre — or by someone she was led to believe was Brett Favre — through an intermediary: Jets media relations manager Jared Winley.
We have MySpace messages, voicemails, and — yes — those photos, all apparently sent by Favre to Sterger, who at the time was working as the Jets’ in-house sideline reporter.
The courtship involved a phony MySpace account under the improbable name “Screaming Lord Byron” — a David Bowie reference. Please suspend your disbelief for a moment.
“Screaming Lord Byron” introduced himself:
This was followed by a phone number:
It was from this number that Sterger later received the two voicemails and the three cock photos that we’ll have for you tomorrow.
Here’s a bit from Brett Favre’s press conference from yesterday’s Jets/Vikings game.
Now it’s also being reported by deadspin that other girls we’re on the receiving end of Favre’s lewdness:
This is about to get worse. It appears Jenn Sterger wasn’t the only woman who received unwanted and inappropriate text messages from Brett Favre while he played for the Jets. Favre also pursued two team massage therapists, according to one of the women.
The woman (who wishes to remain anonymous for now — we’ll call her “Mandy”) worked as a massage therapist for the team for a couple years, but she says never had an incident with a player until No. 4 showed up at training camp at Hofstra University, where the Jets still worked out in 2008. “He was on the table next to mine,” she tells me. “He was looking at my ass the whole time while I worked on another player. He was … ogling me.”
The woman who was massaging Brett that day (massage therapist No. 2, or “Lindsay”) exchanged numbers with him. (Mandy claims it’s common for players to take the numbers of team-contracted massage therapists should they need additional rubdowns off campus. Yeah, I know. Please don’t.)
Lindsay received a text message from Favre, according to Mandy. Lindsay assumed it was for a massage but quickly realized Brett was asking for more. He invited both Lindsay and Mandy back to his hotel room. Mandy claims that the texts became increasingly inappropriate (“just nasty stuff”), but she adds that Brett did apologize when he found out she was married.
This apology over text, however, wasn’t enough for Mandy’s husband. We’ll call him “John”.
“I called him on his phone and told him I wanted an apology. He acted all arrogant. He refused to apologize,” John tells me in a phone conversation.
Mandy and John say they approached attorneys about the situation but were told that because Mandy was a private contractor, there were no grounds for a harassment case. They didn’t pursue anything.
But, after reading the story in the New York Post this morning, they decided to come forward with their story. Mandy’s husband John reached out both to Deadspin and the Post. They don’t want to reveal their names just yet, John says, and they “don’t want photographers on their front lawn.” But they said they’re still considering going public with it. First, they want to talk to the NFL and the Jets. They gave me permission to pass along their info to the team, which I did. If someone from the NFL wants to reach out to them, they’ll talk to someone there, too.
Also? Mandy says she and Lindsay still have some of the text messages. Hooray.
