    Despite the issues, I still say it's a better league with Favre than without him.

    Can the NFL just give him a parade, 3 hour TV special, induct him into the HOF early and retire the number 4 from ever being used again by any team so he will get the send off he feels he is entitled to and just finally retire? I understand loving the game, he officially retired twice, this is getting a little out of hand.

    And somewhere in the world right now, Reebok executives are happy to know the Favre Viking jerseys previously made will now be sold...

    Hopefully the flight path goes over the Bermuda Triangle, and he is never heard from again.

    I scooped you, pats1. ;)

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england...vre-saga-isnt-over-quite-yet.html#post1463772

    February 14: Q: "Can you say, without absolutely any equivocation, that you are not going to play another football game?"

    Favre: "Yes".

    Well, he lies again. What's so wrong with saying, "I'm 40 years old and simply do not feel like going through another training camp"? What's so wrong with that? Why, oh WHY, does he feel the need to constantly retire, then unretire, then RETIRE? What a media/attention whore he is.

    LOL, Cris Carter is tearing him up on SportsCenter.

    I am clearly in the minority but I think this is entertaining.

    I am looking forward to see farve back.

    You have to admit this is somewhat comical...:)

    Since the Vikings don't play an AFC team in week 17, I think this means the Pats can start printing playoff tickets now.

    Can someone post that The Office Michael Scott "NNNOOOOOO" in this thread? Because that is how I feel right now.

    You know, he wouldn't be such a tool if he hadn't just said that he's planning on staying retired. I understand not wanting to give up the game vs your body not being able to take any more, but don't make it sound like the decision's been made only to reverse it, over and over.

    He just didn't want to go to training camp this year. Ironic that he's made his decision as teams prepare to break camp.

    definitely...if nothing else the entertainment value of the league goes up with favre in it...favre bashers and admirers come out in force, fill blogs and boards with impassioned comments...and, who knows, he might give the vikings five or six good games before his November swoon...

    It shouldn't be a surprise to see Favre with the Vikings. That team is only missing a quarterback. They are one player away from being a serious Super Bowl threat. In the meantime, they've done nothing to address that need. Ergo, they fully expect Favre to be part of the team this season.

    It's ridiculous and also selfish. The guy wants to play but doesn't want to do what it takes to win or get a ring. He just wants to keep playing, with minimum work put in, and keep cashing checks as well.

    He's be like Clemens with the Astros (in being not totally committed to the team) but likely without the performance.

    My god, Brett Favre is annoying. I wonder if even Brett Favre hates Brett Favre.

    Yeah, they are going to be scary. Personally, I hope Green Bay blows them out. And I'm talking a Washington Redskins vs. New England Patriots 2007 season type blowout. Packer fans must want to puke right now...

    Well, his job won't be too hard. I bet anyone of us could win itleast 8 games with this team. Hand off to Peterson, throw screens, watch defense.

    I think it is safe to say that few people alive love themselves and seeing their name in the news as much as Brett Favre does.

    On that cover, he really said "In Minnesota, I FINALLY feel like I'm at home"????

    Wow, Packers fans are going to go nuts when they play against each other.

    This is the best thing that could have happened for Aaron Rodgers, he's going to destroy the Vikings and outplay Favre, and make the Packers his team finally.

    No, not in the minority at all. This is a totally hilarious sideshow. I am not looking forward to seeing him back, per se, but I AM looking forward to the first 10 or so interceptions he tosses.
