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?

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.

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.

If he goes on the PUP list, who's the first team he'd face in the Regular Season?

The only thing you can count on is that Favre will not tell the truth. He even lies about lying.

Neither NFL network OR ESPN "broke" this story.

It was Judd Zulag, sports columnist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Zulag is most definitely sticking to his guns about who is lying here, btw.

FYI

Edit-- Judd Zulgad

I'm a huge Favre fan. I think my avatar was hacked by the site admin to reflect my allegiance to #4.

But all along Brett has stATED as long as he can play at a "HIGH" level, he will continue to compete.

I am thinking with a bad ankle, it is going to effect his ability to throw and move around in the pocket.

Brett, if you come back this year, I really thin you are going to regret it. The defenses in the NFL are getting stocked full of players (LBers, Safeties, DE ) that can really run and move.

Sooner or later, one of these guys is gonna make a name for himself by really putting a solid hit on # 4 and putting him out of a game.

That ankle injury may just have cost Brett that step he needs to elude on oncoming defender.

Good luck Brett, you're gonna need it!
So if you meet me Have some courtesy, Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse, Or I'll lay your soul to waste

Isn't "on a stretcher" how Favre is going to have to be retired. Just like Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are going to have to be taken from the stage kicking and screaming. Favre's riding off into the sunset on a white horse moments ala Elway, have come and gone. The lucky bastard got two of them and pissed them both down his leg.

Well, at least in the eyes of his rabid fans, there would probably be some sort of Hollywoodish romanticism in Favre's riding off into the sunset on a stretcher . . .

A splat, softly in the distance with no relevance or meaning. That is how he should go out. An attention whore like him deserves nothing else.

A pathetic mediocre season with a 2-6 start. Ending the year 8-8 and never having hope. A 70 rating and 30 turnovers, refusing to come out even though his lack of mobility was killing the team.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.
