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.
