Sterger's attorney releases his own statement

Earlier today, we told you about the NFL’s $50,000 fine on Brett Favre. As we figured, this punishment likely wouldn’t sit well with the attorney of Jenn Sterger.

And it hasn’t.

Joseph Conley, Sterger’s lawyer, sent the St. Paul Pioneer Press a statement in which he conveyed his disappointment about the verdict and questioned why the Jets organization wasn’t mentioned in the NFL’s release.

Here’s the full statement:

My client and I are extremely disappointed, but not surprised, at today's NFL announcement that Brett Favre did not violate the NFL "workplace conduct" policy. While I am not privy to how Mr. Goodell reached such a finding, we strongly disagree with his conclusion that there was insufficient evidence to support a violation of the policy. To the contrary, our evidence and the personal testimony of Ms. Sterger clearly showed a pattern of lewd and offensive behavior by Mr. Favre that lasted all of the 2008 season. As noted in the NFL's release, "there was no evidence to suggest that Sterger engaged in any inappropriate conduct." In addition to the offensive messages, there was ample evidence to show that the sexually explicit photographs were part of Favre's inappropriate behavior.

Our evidence clearly showed that the photos were sent by Favre. Likewise, Mr. Goodell completely failed to address the complicity of the New York Jet organization in Favre's conduct. The evidence was explicit that Ms. Sterger's personal telephone numbers were provided to Favre by still-current employees of the New York Jets. This was done without Ms. Sterger's knowledge and consent.

Furthermore, the fact that the League took the step of fining Favre for "not being candid in several respects during the investigation" is disturbing in the message it sends. It clearly shows that an NFL star player was given preferential treatment and tells all other players that failure to cooperate may cost you some money but will not result in other punishment. Additionally, today's decision is an affront to all females and shows once again that, despite tough talk, the NFL remains the good old boys' league.

So in the statement, all I read was how they disagreed with the ruling. I was hoping to see something of "we will not stand for this" and the threatening of seeking out some other legal avenue. I suppose back to the drawing board Mr. Conley? I suppose this wraps up Jenn Sterger. Was nice looking at some photos. Enjoy irrelevance from here on out lady.

She is a gutter rat loser and so is her attorney.  Gee, a professional football player hit on a woman with fake boobs who posed naked for Playboy?!  Wow, I am shocked and offended!  Gimmee a break. 

BTW, I live in Detroit and can't stand Favre but the fact the NFL even fined him is ridiculous.

joseph Conley, close your mouth sir.  ahahahaha What's your next move Mr. Conley, civil suit?? Brett Favre ain't paying you a dime and you don't deserve even that. Why did your client wait almost two years sir?  Smells very fishy to me Mr. Conley. Please go away and I don't want to hear from  you and your client again.

So sayeth the gold digging lawyer of a gold digging client. Guess she will wear her skimpy clothes again in another football venue to attract another 15 minutes of fame, while the gold digging lawyer goes back to ambulance chasing. Wear a helmet dude. I imagine it hurts your noggin when the ambulance comes to a sudden stop.
