wpr...it was on ESPN last night. He was joking about why he was throwing the football with the high school team because he needed to get in shape since he packed on 14 lbs since january.

I see what you're saying, but I'm involved with a sport that requires 50 weeks/year of training, and even in football, most nfl players take a month or so off, and are other wise working with specialists, personal trainers, etc. to maximize their fitness and skills all year long. Favre comes off as someone who just pops up when he pleases because he still gets a rush from the games, but doesn't then doesn't want to put in all the other necessary work, which just rubs me the wrong way.


Yea, if he actually committed to getting in shape, maybe he would have had a decent career. When all you do is fish, hunt, drink beer, pop pills and ride your tractor, you get mediocre results like Favre has gotten


HAHAHAH!!! I miss your posts, Digga! +1!!

Now Bretts camp is trying to downplay this..

Word is Brett was in the room while Bus was saying this and was doing it in a joking manner...The reporter just twisted the facts

At least thats the story the camp is trying to put out

Funny when Rodgers was "misquoted" in saying get on board or shut up in the SI article Brett slobbers claimed no reporter would misquote people or purposely twist facts

Color me officially of the opinion I give a shit... either way VR is going to suffer a bit this fall.. whether Brett shocks us or not.

BTW.. when he rejoins us I will post the owed Video on the second half of the wager.. all I will say is glad I am not Norwegian... I would be the worlds skinniest 6-4" person in the world.. I wouldn't eat the meal by choice.. I am thinking in the lines of choosing moldy slim drenched bark with a couple of slugs instead. ;)

On the Rodger line.. it was all about the timing. Nothing more.. and if anyone holds that against him vs all the correct things he has said and done.. well that is their opinion.. so be it.

Uh Oh!!!
We are in BIG trouble!
I just read that Brett IS coming back this year. Proof of this is, he just ordered a "Hoveround!"

Wouldn't surprise me if that's how it went down.

As for Rodgers.. I think he was rightfully justified in that quote.. whether it be misquoted or not.

The thing is......i do NOT hate Brett favre. Not one bit.
I refuse to cheer for him while he is a member of the Vikings (or any other team). But i still like him. I'd LOVE to sit and talk with him. I bet he'd be a HOOT to be with.
I can't blame him for wanting attention. problem is, when he finally DOES retire, it's gonna be a HUGE shock to him, as all his "friends" (and reporters) run off to the next "big story".

I think Favre will retire for real in 2 or 3 years when Peyton Manning is on the decline and thinking retirement.

Yep. I has said for a few years that he is motivated by what Manning does. He doesn't want to lose any of his records so soon.
Of course HE says that he is not motivated by records at all.
Yeah right. ::roll: Uh Huh.

uffda udfa (16m) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (17m) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (23m) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (1h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (1h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (1h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (5h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (5h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (5h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (5h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (7h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (7h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (7h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (8h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (8h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (9h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (9h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (9h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (9h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (10h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (10h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (16h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
