Vikings have no role in Favre-NFL meeting, Childress says

Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said the team will have no role in Tuesday's meeting between quarterback Brett Favre and NFL vice president of security Milt Ahlerich in the Twin Cities.

"None to my knowledge," Childress told the *Minneapolis Star Tribune* on Monday. "That's not our responsibility."

The NFL is investigating allegations that Favre sent inappropriate photos and messages to a New York Jets game hostess when he played for that team in 2008.

After Sunday's 24-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Favre told reporters that he hasn't declined to speak with NFL officials, nor had any contact with the league about the allegations.

"I haven't talked to anybody," Favre said. "I haven't declined."

NFL Network also reported Sunday that the league hadn't yet met with Jenn Sterger, the woman who allegedly received the messages and photos from Favre. Sterger's manager declined comment.

Last week, the sports website Deadspin posted a video that contained the messages and voicemails, along with several below-the-waist photos -- said to be of Favre -- that were allegedly sent to Sterger's cell phone. Sterger, now a TV personality for the Versus network, didn't grant an interview to Deadspin for the report. The website said it bought the material from a third party it didn't identify.

Deadspin also reported that Favre pursued two female massage therapists who worked part time for the Jets. The website didn't identify the women, but the Jets have said they gave their contact information to the league.

Depending on what the league's investigation finds, Favre could be fined or suspended under the NFL's personal-conduct policy.
