no, no chance brett lied to anybody in GB, as it was pointed out to me by a member of this very forum......MM & Ted Thompson had Rodgers, and were not about to beg Brett Favre to play in GB.

The coaching staff & front office were ready to move on with their #1 pick, they had to see what A-Rod was made of....after all, Rodgers contract was about to expire.

I think in your obsession to discredit a hall of fame football player, you have lost the ability to think with your head and instead are thinking with your broken heart.

might be true I am trying to discredit Brett...But I and more than a handful of people here think more with our heads then the ones on the other side of the fence

Proff?

In the past I gave out actual quotes from Brett himself, where as others give out opinions...Yet I am not using my head?

I don't get what is so hard to think Brett Favre was ready to retire. He called say Ryan Longwell, and states, my ankle is really injured, don't think I can go this year.

Longwell contacts his coach and the executives in Minny. They beg the guy to come back(favre), the players beg the guy to come back(favre).

He has a ligit shot @ a championship, and says, damn it, my dad told me to play until I can't, till I am to be carried off the field, they (the vikes) really need me.

so...he changes his mind, and comes back....

can't say as i see it being so terrible(even if he lies about the text), really, that is between # and whomever he is texting)and i will also state as i have before, brett..stay retired, I got a feeling you're gonna regret coming back

please clarify this fence theory...what are the two sides again??

I hope I am on the side that wants #4 to play his ass off and entertain in 2010 and could careless about his private texts.

If that ol' hillbilly is out there slingin it on opening day 2010, more power to him.

I am happy we have rodgers, don't think brett could beat a-rod out if they were both in GB, rodgers has to much mobility, but I love watchin the gunslinger from Kiln Miss.

AND DO NOT CARE ABOUT HIS PRIVATE TEXTS TO HIS CRONIES.

Maybe if Favre wasn't playing this "soap opera" year after year after year, i could take him seriously. Or at least not want to point out how wishy washy he is. But the act is getting old and tired.
Play, don't play.
Who really cares anymore? I don't.
When he was a Packer, i cared, as i never knew WHO was gonna be our QB because of his yearly "retirement" party.
Now, i laugh at it. It's the Queens that have to play this part now. And i don't think they like it.
At least from what i read on the Viking site, they arn't too thrilled.

I apologize in advance for quoting your entire post.

You cheated on your taxes. Does that prove that you commited a murder? What does one have to do with the other? Man, who cares. Lets just enjoy the football season and stop worrying about this junk. This is going on 2 years now with the Favre lovers vs haters.

Cant we all just get long

We've documented it on this very site that Brett has lied before. That's not news. lol

That stuff is all public. Just like Twitter. Just like Facebook. Should it be private? Probably. But it isn't. And your texts and my texts are no more private than Brett's.

naw, just do not agree with that thought process. There is a difference between posting on your wall and sending a PRIVATE TEXT 2 someone.

in your opinion, are all our cell phone conversations open to the public also?

You still dont get it?

If he did say I am retiring in the texts then is lying to cover it up then that is an issue..

As stated if he can lie about something as little as a text chances are he can lie about bigger things. The GB drama?

Then that would mean lot of people are being led to believe lies

But if you still dont understand then I really give up

Yes it is an issue.. but only an issue with Favre's reputation and for the Viking organization and roster.. but beyond that it is nothing that hasn't been exposed before about Brett.

Brett may have burnt a couple of personal bridges with the teammates he texted and now is basically labeling them as mistaken.. but beyond that I see little impact.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I have no doubt Brett sent the messages, and then lied saying he didn't. I wouldn't blame him for it either because of the media attention. If he admits he sent them, then the media asks when you announcing it, you gonna cry again, you havent announced it yet so what is making you reconsider, etc ...

Admitting he sent the texts opens up a huge plethora of more questions. it's not that hard to figure out.

So he lied, big deal. He does that.

What GB Drama??
Once again, as it has been pointed out by members of this very forum, Ted Thompson & Mike McCarthy wanted to move on with A-Rod.

He was a 1st round pick, his contract was about to expire, and they(TT & MM) wanted to see if this kid could play, so they(TT & MM) did not try to keep brett, instead just let him go.

but not entirely, Ted Thompson & Mike McCarthy did their best to keep brett from playing in the NFC North, but it did not work out.

again, do not see how brett's private message to a friend is any of our business.

Stop it, don't you know Brett Favre is the most evil person in the world and TT/MM are angels living among the human race?

Both are who they are. Both sides would do anything to discredit the other side, thats life. Move on, both have to gain from lying or whatever about the 2008 off season. BIG SURPRISE.

I still don't understand how if this text happened or didn't proves anything at all - which we still don't know if it did or didn't. If this is your evidence that Favre was a big fat liar about the 2008 off season and TT/MM are angels, I don't know what to tell you.

I heard Favre told Deanna that he was gonna take out the garbage but he didn't . She woke up the next day and wouldn't you know it, the garbage was still right there, in the kitchen as it was the night before. Now, some people might not think it's a big deal but the rest of us know better. He is such a liar and it proves that he could have been lying about the 2008 Drama with the Packers. Just saying, it's possible.

This is like a classic LSAT question or something (if A is like B, and B is like C....). I don't understand the logic that his argument is unimpeachable.

1) You don't even know what the text messages said (if they even happened).

2) You don't know someone's motivation for lying even if he did. May be the Vikings told him to because they didn't want an even bigger circus and he said "ok fine, I don't care".

Etc.

That's like saying if Ted Thompson or Mike McCarthy lied at some point in their life about something, then they were lying about everything in the 2008 off season. If someone really thinks that Favre possibly hiding text messages to teammates somehow proves that Favre probably lied in the 2008 off season, I don't know what to tell you. It's a bit of a stretch.

I think some people on this board need to do some reading about the subjunctive mood.

Words like "would," "could" . . . we're talking about hypothetical scenarios here, people, not facts!

The only people making this an issue are people that hate Brett Favre. Everyone that just wants him to go out and entertain us football fans (yes I said it, I am also a football fan in addition to being a Packers fan - OMG!).

But I will continue to defend him because the hate on Favre gets extremly irrational at points. Some stuff is legit, yeah that throw against the Giants in 2008 was horrible in OT - stuff the opposite of legends. But a lot of stuff is just plain irrational hate for no reason.
