    Two former New York Jets massage therapists filed a sexual harassment suit Monday against Brett Favre and the Jets, charging they were fired after they spurned the quarterback's crude advancements via text messages.

    In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole say Favre made his move on them in the summer of 2008, after the pair had been working at the Jets training camp on Long Island.

    "Brett here," the alleged text to O'Toole began. "(Y)ou and crissy want to get together im all alone(sic)."

    He then allegedly sent a follow-up text, saying, "Kinda lonely tonight I guess I have bad intentions."

    Scavo told her husband about the texts, and he called the football legend up, and "requested that he stop soliciting his wife for 'bad intentions' or to get together with her. Mr. Scavo further requested that Favre apologize for his inappropriate behavior of sexually harassing Christina Scavo and other massage therapists," the suit says.

    Favre "responded in an inappropriate manner and refused to apologize," the filing says.

    "He essentially told him to go away and as a celebrity he couldn't be bothered with the little people," said the therapists' lawyer, David Jarosclawicz.

    He said it was his clients who got fired after the hubby's phone call. Scavo and O'Toole "were never again called to provide massage therapy for the Jets," the suit says.

    Jaroslawicz said his clients decided to come forward after former Jets' sideline reporter Jenn Sterger's story about being harassed with crude emails from Favre went public. "Then they knew it was a pattern," Jaroslawicz said.

    Both women cooperated with the NFL's investigation into Favre's conduct, and both were disgusted with the $50,000 penalty the league handed down against him.

    Ok, if he was a creep and all why the hell did you give him your number in the first place? Just two dumb chicks looking to screw a famous quarterback and get some money in the process.

    Nope

    Still, his pick up line should be "Hi, I'm Brett Favre".

    If you have ever been around (incredibly) minor celebs, the dudes just need to show up.

    What's with gold-digging star****ers these days?

    Yes, I am assuming but all of a sudden after the other Jets reporter complained now they are to. If it was for reall where were they before, why not come out about it before or when it happened?

    They were "Jets massage therapists". A 40 year old QB probably had his share of massages, wouldn't you say? :kitten:

    LOL! Why is it the Jets all of a sudden? First, the Latino reporter who has a billboard on Hwy 59, then Brett sending pics of his you-know-what, Rex Ryan's foot fetish video, and now two massagers who want to sue Favre...what a season for the Jets.
