Favre's legal troubles are big news in New York, as this headline from the Daily News makes clear.
More bad news for Brett Favre in the wake of last week's $50,000 fine in the Jenn Sterger saga. Massage therapists Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole have sued the quarterback, the New York Jets and a jets employee.

Like the Sterger mess, Favre's latest trouble involves unwanted text messages.

"Kind of lonely tonight. I guess I have bad intentions," Favre allegedly said in one text to the women in 2008, when he and they worked for the Jets.

"You and crissy want to get together im alone," he said in another.

The New York Post reports that the women are claiming sexual harassment, and that they were questioned by the NFL in its probe of Favre. The quarterback's indiscretion was first discovered by the husband of one of the two women, who worked at the Jets summer camp on Long Island in 2008. Their lawyer says the women demanded an apology from Favre that never came.

Sterger, who claims she had evidence that Favre not only sent her lewd messages but also photographs, has not yet taken legal action. But through her lawyer last week it was clear that she, like Scavo and O'Toole, regarded the NFL's $50,000 penalty against Favre to be nothing less than an "affront to all females."

As for Favre, he said Sunday that he's through with his NFL career. But with these lawsuits, and maybe more, his name's going to be in the news for a long time to come.

Brett Favre is one of the greatest quarterbac­ks ever to the play in the NFL; an iron man with a drive, determinat­ion and intensity you rarely see even at the most elite levels in profession­al sports and he did it well beyond where more mortal men shut it down for good. His only life plan seemed to be to play football until he could literally not walk back out on the field, regardless of how many cortisone shots,pain killers, endless massages and/or physical therapy treatments it took. A good ole boy, revered byfootball fans across the country, so why should anyone be surprised that he crossed the lines of decency with regard to the lower level female minions who were there to 'soothe the pains' of the annointed gladiator? Likewise, why would anyone not take seriously the claims of women who knew that they would likely be dismissed by more powerful folks above them seeking to protect the value of their enterprise and marquee player? Is this perhaps hard to believe? Or let me ask, is it not even harder to believe that the Jets would not have wanted to keep him around for Insurance unless they knew something? Maybe in the confines of some small town Brett could could have gotten the coverup treatment Big Ben Roethlisberger did in Georgia with some good ole boys in the Sheriff's department. In NY? Keep dreaming. The animal is out of the cage and some victims got bitten. Our heroes are imperfect. Deal with it. Don't debase these women until they have a hearing.
