Last year, one beloved sports figure, Tiger Woods, fell from grace.

This year, another beloved sports figure, Brett Favre could be next.

Tiger Woods' car crash ultimately opened up a Pandora's box of major controversy.

Favre has reportedly sent nude photos and incriminating voicemails to a Jets sideline reporter, and possibly other Jets employees.

Favre has confessed to the voice mails to Jenn Sterger, but not to sending pictures of himself. The NFL is currently investigating these allegations. His wife has reported that she is keeping faith throughout the situation.

The fallout with Tiger resulted in his wife divorcing him, dropping from his top position in golf and losing a majority of his sponsors.

If all accusations with Favre are true, who did the worst to their wives and families: Favre or Woods?

Lets match them up first.



Favre: Reportedly sent pictures of privates and sent numerous voice mails to sideline reporter Jenn Sterger and other Jets employees.

Woods: Slept with over 10 women.



Favre: Two daughters, three grandchildren.

Woods: One daughter, one son.


Number of years married

Favre: 14 years.

Woods: Six years.


Favre wins.

Although no reports that Favre cheated, unlike Woods, it appeared he really tried to. The Sterger voicemails just seem desperate.  Add in the two other girls and he's even more desperate.

Favre also had more loyalty to his wife. They have been married for 14 years, compared to Tigers' six.

Consider everything Brett and Deanna have been through: she stuck with him during his Vicodin addiction and his alcoholism. She also appears to be standing by him while he's out sending nude photos to girls. Good husbandry, Brett.

Let's not forget she is a breast cancer survivor.  I wonder how he can cheat on someone who has been through so much with him.

He's also a grandpa.  Imagine finding out your grandpa sent nude pictures to 20 year-olds.  Grandpa's should be mature enough to say, "I have two kids and three grandchildren.  Maybe I should not take pictures of myself and send them out." Apparently Favre is a perverted 14 year-old trapped in a 40 year-old body.

The pictures are questionable.  Tiger was allegedly a sex addict. Maybe he snapped some pictures of himself, but the girls were probably willing to see them.

In conclusion, due to all of the factors I have mentioned above, what Favre did is way worse than Woods if it is all true.
