NFL: Massage therapists sue Favre

Associated Press
NEW YORK ó Two massage therapists sued Brett Favre on Monday, saying they lost their part-time jobs with the New York Jets after complaining about sexually suggestive text messages from the veteran quarterback.
Claiming they were subjected to sexual harassment and job discrimination, Christina Scavo and Shannon OíToole are seeking unspecified damages from Favre, the Jets and a Jets massage coordinator.
While the women donít say they received any messages directly from Favre, he referred to Scavo in a message proposing a meeting with her and a third, unidentified massage therapist, the lawsuit says.
ěKinda lonely tonight,î he added in a subsequent message to the third masseuse. ěI guess I have bad intentions.î
The lawsuit comes five days after the NFL fined Favre $50,000 for not being forthright in an investigation into allegations that he sent lewd text messages and photos to former Jets game hostess Jenn Sterger when they both worked for the team in 2008.
The two women worked for years at the Jets training camp and for various players individually, sometimes giving massages at playersí homes.
After Scavo and an unidentified colleague gave massages at the training camp in 2008, Favre sent the colleague a text message saying, ěBrett here you and crissy want to get together Iím all alone,î the lawsuit said.
