So has Favre been fined for holding out? He never was placed on the Reserve/Retired list as far as I know.

Maybe they should have sent Madden and King down to Hattiesburg. This may have been done weeks and weeks ago.

Keep dreaming. Look forward to two more embarrassing ass kickings and another Favre sweep

A lot of things get let go in the SuperBowl that don't get let go in the regular season. And while this may be a bit of a conspiracy theory, I think the Saints got away with a bit extra because of the "making history" PR line (first ever super bowl, post-katrina, etc).

Beating the crap of Favre has been tried many times. What was different about the Saints is they were willing to flirt with crossing the line (if not outright ignoring it) a lot more. I don't think that is going to be replicable, especially with the "icon" thing operating, in the regular season.

If I were a betting man, I'd put money on this: if the Saints "go after Favre" in week 1 the way they did in the championship game and the way they went after Manning in the Superbowl, they'll get flagged early and often.


See, what ever happened to protecting your teammates? Honestly, if I see guys on another team going after my quarterback the way they did, there wouldnt' be anything to stop me from doing something crazy. If im on defense, i'm taking out YOUR quarterback. If i'm on the offense, I'm gonna give that guy a crack back at his knees or rip his helmet off and F&*% him up big time. Theres no way i'd let that stuff go. I guess the Vikings are full of fumblers and gutless purple pansies.

I'm not at all surprised he's back.
That said, i'm GLAD we will get another shot or 2 at him. Yes, he came out on top last year......but this is THIS year. I think we have alot better chance this season.
I don't want any cheap shots. I don't want to see him hurt. I do want him bruised.....especially his ego.

Apparently the Vikings were getting word that Brett was again swaying towards retiring. They sent three of his closest friends on the team to spend the night at his house. Which they per Ryan Longwell they did. It wasn't until the morning that Brett finally said yes.

Brett will say he didn't come back for the money, then say 'would you turn down extra money?' and most surely will say the money will help his foundation greatly, which it will. That is, if it comes out that his contract was redone.


Basically, the Vikings felt their QB slipping away and pulled out the stops to get him into camp.


Remember a few years ago what Ted Thompson said about a player that needs to be coerced into playing? And what others said about that very thing? Interesting, huh?
