New York - Roger Goodell, who was busy counting his money, said that he was happy he sat on the Favre issue until after the Vikings played the Packers because of how much money the NFL made off the game.
"Oh, did I call it or what--Favre is money in the bank. So, I am a hypocrite when it comes to the rules I enforce. Did you really think I would suspend a legend?" Roger Goodell said at a press conference in New York.
"Just because the voice sounded just like Favre, and yes, he admitted that he called Jen Sterger, but that doesn't mean he broke any NFL rules. Wait, yes Favre did. I think we will punish him this week, maybe." Mr. Goodell added.
Roger Goodell isn't going to let money cloud his judgement, but clearly wavered when it came to making statements about Favre's situation and what he would do with Favre.
A NFL reporter asked Mr. Goodell about why he suspended Ben Roethlisburger for being a bad drunk?
"Big Ben doesn't make money for the NFL like Favre does, so it was easier for me to suspend Big Ben." Mr. Goodell told the reporter who was hounding him about why he wasn't doing anything about Brett Favre.
The NFL might do something this week, but it looks like Favre's bad ankle is good for ratings, too.
