Viking players working together? Kind of like they did with 12 men in the huddle during a meaningless NFC Championship game? lol


It would be hilarious if a handful of players said, hey Brett text me saying he's retiring. Something bout a bum ankle. Let's tell ESPN. Did I really get a text? No, but this shit will be funny!


lol


I wouldn't put it past a quietly or secretly disgruntled player with respect to Brett, slipping a false story to put the media nonsense back on the hunt and to dog Brett some to irritate the camp skipper. ;)


Exactly, who is this "anonymous source". Sounds exactly like that kind of scenario 93z

key word is did Brett TEXT people

I know for a FACT that his inner circle will say I did NOT talk to Brett in MONTHS yet they in same breath say I texted him 20 times today

So maybe technically Brett didnt text? but emailed? or??

Was it fake last summer when he texted "just a rumor" when reports were flying around that he was signing with the Vikings?

Actually, it's the guys out of Minnesota and Jay Glazer that I believe broke the story. Although, Visanthe Shianco did tell Scott Van Pelt that players had received word from Favre that he was retiring. There was also a very intense meeting among front office personnel in Minnesota. There was some fire here.


Hoopla.

Anyway, the Shainco bit will be interesting.. Remember he didn't get any text messages.. he just heard that other players were getting them. I wonder if the other players were just pulling his leg or what. Anytime something that involves this many people.. things tend to get complicated.


We've seen this every year. I wouldn't doubt he told players he's probably going to retire because of the ankle and I don't doubt that Minnesota tried to change his mind and now he's going to go see if his ankle is going to heal.

You know, he can always go on PUP and come back and lead Minnesota in the playoffs. He doesn't have to be there for week one. Al Harris is in the same situation except with an ACL.

If I thought of that, so have the Vikings' front office.

I knew it was fake. He's coming back. Fucking media needs to jump off a cliff. I'm sure some will say it's Bretts fault. The old flip flop. The waffler, insert ignorant comment here, etc.
.


he is calling visanthe shiancoe liar...Vic said brett told team mates he was retiring

lies?

Quote:
A Minnesota Vikings player says Brett Favre has texted his teammates and told them he plans to retire.

Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe said he learned of the messages by talking to several teammates on Tuesday. He said he had not received any direct messages from Favre.
