And this case raises the same issue as the Ben Roethlisberger case did: Do you penalize the rest of the team - and its fan base - by suspending the player in question? And remember that, despite their 3-1 record while Big Ben was out, the Steelers did lose to the Ravens at home, which all but guarantees a Baltimore sweep based on the more than decade-long trend of what happens to a team that loses the first meeting at home to a division rival in the second meeting on the road (they also lose that game as well nearly three-fourths of the time, and virtually all of the time unless the team losing the first meeting is more than two games ahead in the standings at the time the rematch is played).

If, say, Favre is suspended for four games over this, the Vikings might as well forfeit those four games.
You dont think Tavaris Jackson could do a better job than Favre at this point? Hell Tim Couch could do a better job than Favre right now. Suspending Favre isn't a penalty its a blessing.



How many people have sent a text message they regret? Hell there is a website Texts From Last Night, full of stories (well texts really) that make this seem more common than you think. Go find a high schoolers phone, it HAPPENS...A LOT. It's never been that big a deal, just because its Brett and not Quinn the local cheerleader sending naked pictures of herself to her boyfriend, doesnt change the severity of the issue.
