NFL Fines Brett Favre $50,000 for Not ‘Cooperating’ in Sterger Investigation

by 8 years ago

According to ESPN:

“The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger,” the NFL said in its statement. “The review found no evidence to contradict the statements of both Favre and Sterger that they never met in person, nor was there anything to suggest that Sterger engaged in any inappropriate conduct.”

In a memo sent to the NFL's 32 teams Wednesday, Goodell said there are “no excuses for improper or potentially unlawful conduct in the workplace.”

“Every member of every club's staff should be able to work in an environment free of harassment or hostility, and one in which every employee is valued, respected, and given a full opportunity to contribute to the goals of the club and the NFL,” Goodell said in the statement. “Our new training program on workplace conduct will help all of us to promote the right kind of environment for all employees and I intend to dedicate the fine I have imposed on Favre to help fund that training program.”
