NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has fined Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre $50,000 on Wednesday for failing to cooperate with the league’s investigration over the sexting scandal with former NY Jets employee, Jenna Sterger.

Favre’s punishment stems from Goodell’s determination that he was “not candid in several respects during the investigation resulting in a longer review and additional negative public attention for Favre, Sterger and the NFL,” the league said. The commissioner also told 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.”

The NFL said its sole focus was on whether Favre violated workplace conduct policy, not to “make judgments about the appropriateness of personal relationships.”

What do you think? Is this a fair fine for the veteran quarterback? Or is his punishment just another example of a famous sports star getting preferential treatment?
