I heard 12 million.......... so was he holding out for more money since the first reported offer was 10 million?

He was holding out because he could. The Vikings have exactly zero leverage in this whole thing. No minicamps? That's fine with us Brett. Skip the first week and a half of training camp too? Sounds good! More money? How much money do you want Brett? *slurp slurp slurp*

Annnddd Brett Favre has officially become a parody of himself.

Exactly. It's amazing what a QB starved team will do to get a good one. He could've pretty much walked in after pre-season week 4 and he would've been handed the starting job, I think.

Good for them. I asume that this will make their team better. We'll see how this works out.

Must be a love/hate relationship then. How many times has he "claimed" retirement only to back out of it?

I think it is all about not wanting to do training camp to be honest..

Recall his 1st retirement from Packers..Said if I didnt have to do all the stuff during the week, he would still be playing

That's just sad. He doesn't want to prepare, he only wants to play around on Sundays. Oh well, good. He can half ass it. I'm sure that'll really help the Vikings.

I can't think of any other reason the offer would go up $2 mill, unless they think he's that much more valuable with the lack of preparation.

I do too - the money comment was a bit tongue in cheek. I'm sure he didn't want to do training camp - they are probably just throwing in the extra 2 million for looks.
