Pat McAfee, the former NFL punter turned sports talk-show host, might be showing his fans that he isn’t worried about being sued, but it could end up costing him in the long run.
Last Friday during “The Pat McAfee Show” during Super Bowl week on “radio row,” McAfee treated the lawsuit as a celebratory milestone.
“Hey, we made it boys,” McAfee said.
“I guess whenever you get a little bit too big, you fly a little bit too close to the sun,” McAfee said. “I’m getting sued alongside Shannon Sharpe and an auditor from Mississippi by Brett F—in’ Favre.”
On Tuesday, former ESPN and Fox personality Jason Whitlock spoke with Brett Favre’s lawyer, Eric Herschmann, and he made it clear that McAfee will pay dearly for attacking Brett Favre. In fact, he stated that his mouth will cost him millions of dollars.

Favre, who has not been charged with a crime, has been at the forefront of the $77 million welfare scandal in his home state of Mississippi. The state is suing him while alleging he knew money would be withdrawn from a fund for needy families when he went to Mississippi officials looking for funding for a University of Southern Mississippi volleyball facility, which was funded by $5 million in misappropriated funds.
Favre’s defamation lawsuit also takes aim at “Undisputed” host Shannon Sharpe and Mississippi state auditor Shad White.
McAfee could’ve avoided all of this by removing references to Brett Favre from his YouTube and Twitter as it was written to him by Favre’s lawyers before the lawsuit came about. Instead, he called that request “hilarious,” adding, “Of course, we’re not doing that.” After that, another letter requested a public apology in addition to the erasure of past references.
“I’m one of the worst apologizers in history,” McAfee said.
In the end, he may end up apologizing when it is all said and done.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
