That’s all I can title this post is “Favre”. I’m sick of seeing or writing his name. And I refuse to write more than one post per year about his annual attention fest. This is all I will say. I didn’t believe it for one second when I saw the breaking news yesterday. I figured even if he “officially” retired yesterday, the day before the regular season began, he would have flown into Minneapolis (or New Orleans, since the Vikings open there) and expect to start.
And from the beginning, Profootballtalk has said the same thing, figuring that Favre is angling for more money and the right to show up whenever he so chooses. And today it has been reported that the Vikings are now offering to pay him $16 million plus incentives for one year if he returns.
Funny, when I have no doubt he never intended to not return in the first place. (That’s a lot of double negatives, but I re-read it and think it makes sense.) Since nothing in this particular story makes sense, it makes sense.
Am I the only person waiting for the day that this nonsense blows up in the Vikings’ and Favre’s faces?
