Favre's Junk

We normally keep to things Sooner related here, and this is only tangentially so in the slightest possible way (Favre hands off to Sooner alum Peterson, and both have johnsons).

Anyway, yesterday the NFL fined Favre $50,000 for failing to cooperate. The release also indicates that "Goodell stated to Favre that if he had found a violation of the league's workplace conduct policies, he would have imposed a substantially higher level of discipline".

So, in a nutshell, Favre failed to cooperate and was fined $50k. If he would have cooperated and been found "guilty" of sending photos, he may have been fined more. So, in a nutshell, Favre saved money by not cooperating. Do you think Favre would have cooperated had he expected to be exonerated if all details were disclosed?

Seems ot me like the penalty should have been more severe for obstructing justice, but I guess the NFL doesn't want to call Favre a liar in the last week of what once has been a historical career.

We now return to monitoring my horrible prognostications of bowl games.
