After Tiger, it’s Favre

It’s not even been a year since the Tiger Woods scandal. And one more icon of American sports with a clean, family guy image is tainted by scandal. Footballer Brett Favre, 41, is being investigated for sending sexual text messages to a female ex-colleague. The woman in question is Jenn Sterger, an employee of the New York Jets, for whom Favre played in 2008.

Sterger was a sideline reporter for the Jets and also modelled for Maxim and Playboy. Favre is said to have been besotted by her, sending her audio and visual messages of an explicit nature. He is married, with two daughters. One of his daughters became a mother in April. This made Favre the only grandfather among active football players.
