Tampering Update: Possible Hard Evidence

Fresh off the presses or in this case, the TV. WBAY in Green Bay is reporting hard evidence that tampering took place has been found.

Sources: Favre Text-messaged Vikings on Packers Cell Phone

The ongoing tampering investigating involving Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings has a new twist.

Not only has it been reported that Favre used a Packers-issued cell phone to make repeated calls to Minnesota head coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevel, but there may also be text messages to support the tampering claims.

That latest nugget comes from Tuesday Night Touchback contributor Jason Wilde, citing league sources.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, NFL security officials visited the Vikings offices Tuesday as they investigate the tampering charges.

My question is, without the phone, how do they know what was on the text messages? Can you get a history in the way of a printout of all the messages going to and from a phone, just by asking your cellular company for them?

Now if there is damning evidence, (and I'm not concluding nor admitting there is at this point) then I'm really starting to question Childress' abilities to make correct decisions.

I understand the football reasons that Brett Favre may be attractive, but it is the decision to discuss employment by texting on a cell phone that bothers me.

Are we talking teenagers here? Will my next job ask for my services by text message on a cell phone? That sounds absurd to me.

What do you guys think?
