Damn, I must be thinking baseball.
I think you're right that a player can go in under (or as) a member of a selected team in Baseball.

Correct, NFL players just go in as a player with teams listed as who they played for

I don't hate Favre. What he did is over (hopefully!)LOL!
So i'll welcome him back, if he acts decent towards the Packer organization and the fans.

Oh....and Zero....LJ is here and saw "Achmed". It made her laugh!
She's had a tough time at work, and needed a good thing to smile about.

I wouldn't offer him forgiveness. If he came to the people of Packer Nation, owned up to his actions and sincerely apologized, then sure.

If he pulls a Pete Rose and apologizes like Bluto after he smashed the guitar. Then not a chance.

Just admitting that the Packers have a good team and will probably will win the super bowl isn't even a start. He can do that and still hate and want to disgrace the organization.

Until he does really apologize, and mean it, he can go pound sand. As far as I am concerned.

That isn't for going to MN, or fake retiring to weasel out of his contract. Or for calling out players for wanting out of their contracts. It is for sticking it to the team by decoding his playbook for the Lions and several other unnamed teams. The sabotage of Rodgers season is such a dishonorable act, I won't look the other way and pretend it didn't happen. Leaving was just being a jerk. The sabotage was disgraceful and I can't respect an honor-less person like that by retiring his jersey.


Was this ever more than just a rumor?

Jay Glazer and his producers stood by the story 100% as it was written. They said they talked to the parties in question. According to the article, the Lions admitted it. The other teams wouldn't go on record, but did talk. If Glazer lied, they could be sued. The editors and the legal staff wouldn't let that story see the light of day and risk a lawsuit without solid sources.

Favre first denied the story and then changed it to "It wasn't that bad, everybody does it."

Chilly and Bevil also admitted they were talking with Favre at that time, so I would say if he is going to decode his playbook for the Lions, he is going to do it for the Vikings. It isn't a huge leap if you ask me. Specially since Glazer said other teams admitted it off record. I threw in the Bears because the article mentions more than one team that wouldn't go on record. So that is a minimum of 3 and Favre would be able to do the most damage by going to the NFCN.

That is probably why he said it wasn't going to work out when Thompson got the roster exemption and said Favre could come into camp. He knew the other NFCN teams had the Packers playbook. He would have had to face them after he helped them out.

Dexter_Sinister I'm by no means trying to call you out, but I've looked for articles to support that and failed. Would you happen to have a link to one where Jay Glazer says he stands behind it because he spoke to the parties Brett informed?

I would have to google it too. I didn't save the article. It might have been the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal.

Here is a different one that quotes Glazer as saying he stands by it 1000 percent. This one is a bit more anti-Favre than the other one.

I don't feel like I am getting called out if someone asks for sources of info. It is a fair request to me.

Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
