2022 is different and three high profile sports figures are finding that out this week.
Brett Favre should go to jail for his role in the misappropriated welfare funds in Mississippi, the state with the highest level of poverty in the nation. As reported, the Hall Of Fame Quarterback leveraged his fame to get more than $4 million in welfare funds to build a volleyball complex at his daughters’ college.
Favre and former Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant have not been charged for their alleged roles…yet
Text messages again get Favre in trouble.
Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka is likely facing a suspension for the entire season for his role in an intimate relationship with a female member of the franchise’s staff, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The relationship is a violation of the organization’s guidelines.
Cheating on your wife is nothing new. And while the relationship was consensual according to reports, it violated the Celtics company policy.
I am not sure I need the details on Udoka stepping out on Nia Long, but based on the reports, if she did not work for the Celtics, we would not know about it.
Robert Sarver this week started the process of selling the Suns. In his statement, he wrote “in our current unforgiving climate, it has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible — that whatever good I have done, or could still do, is outweighed by things I have said in the past. For those reasons, I am beginning the process of seeking buyers for the Suns and Mercury.”
It’s 2022 and lots of people need to be paying attention, including Dan Snyder.
What you could get away with in the past…
