    You'd never see that nice boy Tom Brady mixed up in any of this.

    Tom is special. Seems like a great guy all around. Except maybe for inflategate but that's like the prom queen having had a zit junior year.

    Just how much Favre knew or didn't know about all this is still an open question. But I understand he is pleading ignorance.

    Let's not pretend him admitting he knew he was being paid out of TANF would not have entirely destroyed him publicly and denied him any chance at any future sponsorship deals or paid speaking engagements. Denial was his only option.

    Well, the idea that rich people stop wanting more money at some point is pretty much the fallacy driving the world into ruin. But also, some rich people are terrible with their money.

    lol, criminal masterminds.

    That was for a total or $4 million. That's less than DiBiase and his sons stole.

    It's also not fraud perpetrated against the taxpayers by people who claim to be against big government, so I'm not sure what the fuck it has to do with this thread.

    He's not charged with a crime but they say he should have know the source of the money was illegal. Once again, plausible deniability has won the day.

    I have been following this story for a while. The investigative reporting seems first rate. By that I mean this is the sort of public corruption that dedicated journalists can uncover with a lot of work

    The Favre money is a relatively small part of what was embezzled. At the moment, all Favre has to do is pay back the money or face a civil suit.

    There is no way Favre got paid close to $1m for doing nothing and thought that it was on the up and up but I find it plausible that he was ignorant of the overall embezzlement scheme. Dirtbag for sure, but apparently not criminal

    You just can't trust a guy that pronounces his name opposite of the order of the letters in it.

    Send him to prison. He can be the star of another Longest Yard movie.

    Damn. I haven’t watched NFL since the 1990s but I used to be a fan of the Packers and Favre/Farve (how do you spell it?) but this is pretty disappointing. What an asshole.
