The Latest In Brett Favre Rumor Mongering

Brett Favre

I am Favre. I will do as I please.

Brett Favre won’t have ankle surgery!

That’s the word from Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press, who decided to give the news, or rumor, the following one line in yesterday’s column.

Hot rumor is that QB Brett Favre will decline to have left ankle surgery as recommended by an orthopedist. What that means for his future with the Vikings is unclear.

Well, far out then.

Favre, of course, was said to need ankle surgery to play the 2010 season. So then, if this is true, then Favre is apparently not playing in 2010.

We believe this much of it.

Zero.

Frankly, we think Favre is much more deliberate than the ho hum, aww shucks, good ole country hick everyone makes him out to be. We think there’s no way Favre is going to training camp. We think this is all just an act to accomplish that goal and not look completely selfish doing it. We think Favre will quarterback the Minnesota Vikings in 2010, but only if he has his way.

All of this back-and-forth, will-he-or-won’t-he bullshit is designed to do two things.

1. Keep Favre in the people’s good graces and the spotlight he so craves, while…

2. Making sure Favre gets to do whatever Favre wants to do.

    My only question is to the media morons who constantly patronize the idiology of this Diva.With so much more interseting things happening and not happening in the NFL,why do you even give the time of day to someone who won’t give anyone a straight answer?I’m a Packer fan to the end and loved Farve as much or more than many,but OMG let’s get news about someone that SPEAKS.

    any packer fan that hates on brett favre, isnt a true packer fan. lets remember that he was ran out of the town that worshiped him for 16 years. all you jealous cheeseheads out there are annoying the shit out of me. oh and by the way, we dont need him anymore. we have our qb for the next 10 years. not to say the packers wouldnt have won a super bowl or 2 with brett the last 2 years, because we probably would have got at least one.

  4. homer

    Favre WAS the packers. And as soon as he retires for good, I’ll go back to watching the pack with that power-ranger Rogers at the helm, but not before.

    Favre IS that ho-humm- good ole country hick that everyone makes him out to be…

    One more year Brett.

    Wrong EVAN

    any packer fan that doesn’t hate on brett favre is a fan of the vikings which means they (such as you) not a true packer fan.

    How the fuck can you root for packers biggest rival and still consider yourself green and gold….get a new dealer evan cuz the stuff your smoking is shit.


  6. evan:

    not to say the packers wouldnt have won a super bowl or 2 with brett the last 2 years, because we probably would have got at least one.

    Because Favre’s mere aurrrra would have made the ’08 defense better, right?

    And because Favre played so well in his team’s ’09 road playoff game, right?

    Gee, what an upgrade he would’ve been. The Packers must not want to win Super Bowls.

    what I find curious is how quickly after the draft this news of a pending need for ankle surgery reared its head. It is as if not enough people were talking about HIM so he has to leak some news out there. And if it’s true, how pathetic is that?

    Evan – don’t presume to lay down the law about what makes up a “true” Packer fan. It’s incredibly arrogant and, in my opinion, incorrect.

  8. zubi

    That’s a nice picture of favre, right after he kicked some packer ass. Wait a few months and you will have a few more of these :)

    Let me get this right,”I’m not a Packer fan if I go against Farve”even if he plays in Minn.”Farve would have won 2 Sb’s for us since we let him go.”How much Kool-Aid can you morons drink at one time.A true fan is one who stands up for every player ON THE TEAM.When a player leaves a team it is still great to Honor what He did for Your Team Then,but when he is gone and plays for any team(especially a rival) you cannot wish him well and play great as you are cheering against yourself and the team you say you support. Sportsmanship-the ability to adore and then to abhor the same player! The right to love the past and hate the now!

    Having respect for Brett Favre does not make you a Minnesota Vikings fan. Having respect for Brett Favre means you have respect for the game and what he has done in his amazing career. He means a lot to the Packers organization.

    Look, the Packers could’ve taken him back. They didn’t. Not saying they were right or wrong – it’s beside the point. But they could’ve taken him back.

    The Packers retired Favre – what, 20 or 25 million to stay retired? But he didn’t do it because it’s not about the money. It’s about love of the game.

    How many players can you truly say that about? How many players can you say played the game with more love, more passion, more toughness than Brett Favre?

    Packer fans should know this better than anyone.

    So, ya, I would say true Packer fans still respect Favre.

    You’re an idiot! Packer Nation doesn’t need loser fans like you.

    evan:

    lets remember that he was ran out of the town that worshiped him for 16 years.

    You’re a shithead. He retired and then tried to force the Packers to release him so he could go to the queens. He was not run out of town, instead he tried to hold the team hostage.

  13. Bretthater


    Cole:

    The Packers retired Favre

    How can a team retire a player?? This is about the dumbest thing I’ve seen on this subject. Favre threw the Packers and Packer Nation under the bus because he thought he was bigger than the team. Also, the Packers made him a very rich man so it’s not like he was playing for free now was it. Go root for the queens you pansy.

  14. Hey Monty,

    Can you use google analytics to see how many clicks your Favre articles get compared to everything else? Judging by the number of comments I’m guessing almost half.

  15. tequila

    I’m happy to see that this site’s comments section has finally found it’s voice. For those confused and loathsome imbeciles who think Favre made Green Bay, was ‘run out of town’ and are waiting to come back to Packers fandom, go fuck yourself.

    Taryn you exposed yourself as a fraud (viking fan) with the simplest of litmus test…your idols name is spelled “Favre” not “Farve” you fucking moron.

    packerfaninfl.go fuck yourself dick head.you call me a moron because of a spelling mistake,you analize to hard ANAL BOY!!!How do you get both of your heads up your own ass,as I know a few more jerk offs that would love to master that technique. Don’t call me out,as you bit off more than you can handle,unless of coarse you bit your own dick.

  18. PackerFanINFL

    lol at you.. would think you would spell it correctly I would after 16 years of worship. I bet you know how to spell tarkentun* (I don’t).

  19. Taryn

    packerfaninfl,that”s it,the best you could do.Pathetic.Maybe you “WORSHIP” FAVRE(correct spelling) and is the reason your a loser.I can see you now,on your knees WORSHIPING a photo of FAVRE and only hoping that some day you may get to taste his ass. Loving the way he played for us and “WORSHIPING” is a whole other feeling.You’re scary! eeeeekkkk

  20. Matt Fox

    Yes that makes sense, because Brett Favre reports the media on himself and tells them to follow his every move, especially when the’yre saying mainly negative things.
    And, yes, Favre just gets to do WHATEVER HE WANTS. Absolutely anything. He can go out and murder hookers, snort cocaine with Neil Patrick Harris and kill dogs in his backyard for fun. Oh wait. I’m sorry. By do anything he wants you just mean miss training camp and play another season. Oh, that’s fucking terrible. Put that man in jail immediately!
    You guys are RETARDED. Just be quiet.

  21. Matt Fox

    And Bretthater, what the fuck are you talking about? He (Brett) retired and tried to force the Packers to release him? Yes, and Germany was a happy little country that one day decided to start killing people. I think your missing a part of the story there shithead. Like that Favre was given a 3 week deadline to make a decision right after losing (while Michael Strahan had the ENTIRE OFFSEASON) and after being forced to make a quick decision realized he made a mistake, tried to come back, but was told by the organization that he was not wanted back and would not start if he unretired, in which case Favre asked to be released so he could find a Superbowl contender that did want him, ala the Vikings. You seriously don’t remember this? The Packers hired the fucking Bush administration’s PR man for chist sakes. That doesn’t seem fishy to you people? You have a fucking selective memory dont you? Jesus. Try not to make yourself look too stupid.
