Brett Favres fined $50,000 by NFL

Brett Favre has been fined $ 50,000 by NFL for failing to cooperate with an internal investigation.The Minnesota Vikings quarterback was accused of sending sexually explicit messages to New York Jets game-day hostess Jenn Sterger back in 2008 while he was representing for the Jets. 

But despite all this the accusations made, NFL has been unable to conclude either Favre  send those messages. According to statement by Commisioner NFL Roger Goodell stated: "Could not conclude that Favre violated league policies relating to workplace conduct,"

Also the league was unable to establish with the fact that they have met even face to face. But whatever the case remains Favres during the investigation has not been very helpful, hence causing longer reviews and were a source of negetivity in front the people for Favre, Sterger, and NFL. The NFL also extended their investigation into an another media report claiming about Favre's misconduct with other women in the 2008 season who had worked at the Jets' facility. But again the critical evidence providing individual refrained from being interviewed or cooperating. During the investigation various public reports,including interviews with Favre and Sterger were made,also the forensic analysis of the electronic texts which were exchanged by them.NFL also made the notion about the investigation which remained limited as they could not start it early:

"The investigation was limited in several respects because the conduct occurred in 2008 but was not brought to our attention until this fall. As a result, certain records and individuals were unavailable to the NFL," the NFL said in a statement.

Goodell was also very critical about the discipline as well, as he made very straight forward that if during the investigation Favres is found guilty, a ''substantially'' bigger penalty shall be imposed upon.
