This has people wondering: Will the scandal and any subsequent suspension force Favre to retire?
The Times Bill Rhoden’s voices the feeling:
Sterger may succeed where defenses have failed: she’ll knock him out of the league, sooner than expected. Should Favre be found to have violated the N.F.L.’s conduct policy, he could be fined or suspended.
Favre could have walked away two seasons ago, with his good name and football legacy intact.
He was never more popular — and will never be more popular — than he was in Green Bay, where he was the heart, soul and saviour of the franchise…
Favre should have left at last call. The party is over. He’s the only one who doesn’t know.
