Not Even Bus Cook Likes Brett Favre

100 21

Brett Favre attempts to size up his ego.

Maybe that’s an overstatement. We know one thing — Bus Cook likes Brett Favre’s money.

However, Cook, who is Favre’s agent, clearly doesn’t think much of Favre’s antics when it comes to dealing with the media, according to Favre’s recent Men’s Journal interview.

Cook takes exception with Favre telling ESPN’s Ed Werder he needs ankle surgery and the accompanying media shitstorm it creates. In this excerpt, Cook is talking to Stephen Rodrick, who wrote the story on Favre.

“Brett talked to goddamned Ed Werder at ESPN, says he needs ankle surgery. Now why did he do that? I’ve got Childress calling. I’ve got reporters calling all damn morning. Goddammit, why does he have to be such a goddamned drama queen? Play, don’t play, goddamn, people are getting sick of it. I’m getting sick of it! Why does he have to talk to these people? What good does it do? Ed Werder at ESPN! What’s he ever done for anybody other than say, ‘Look, look, Mommy, I got this first, ain’t I special?’ You got problems with surgery, talk to your wife. Why talk to goddamned Ed Werder?”

You’d think Cook would know his client a little better by now.

Who else is going to pad Favre’s giant ego and make him the center of attention if not the media?

  1. I think Cook actually manipulates a lot of the media attention. This quote is a total smokescreen on his part. This summer has been all about LeBron and Cook is pulling out the stops to generate some controversy.

    Favre’s whole drama reeks like a Mexican soap opera. Maybe I’ll call him Generalissimo Favre for now on…

    These guys are excellent at ‘feeding’ the hype machine and building the FAVRE brand.

    This all just keeps people talking about the Brett Favre non-news.

    It’s sickening.

    My quarterback holds the ball too long and throws it into the oncoming defenders hands when he gets sacked. Hurray! Superbowl here I come!

    No, no, i think you misunderstood what I said. I didnt say my quarterback who took the Packers out of one of the worst quarter-centuries in sports history in which they won one playoff game, and brought them to relevance again for the past two decades, as well as a superbowl. I meant my quarterback who, despite being “one of the top quarterbacks in the league” has won zero playoff games and sports a 17-15 record. That quarterback.

      You misspelled Reggie White and Mike Holmgren, it’s weird. And without the Packers, Favre would have partied himself out of the league. If you need to know how bad he was back then, think about how Atlanta was willing to trade him within a year of drafting him, teams don’t usually do that with second round picks.

    The message the Saints sent loud and clear to the rest of the league is that the way to beat the Vikings was to beat the living hell out of #4. I’d be very surprised if he lasts the entire season.

    The message the Packers sent loud and clear to the rest of the league was “Oh shit! We shouldntve pissed him off so much, we just got the living shit beaten out of us on nationally t.v. For the second time.”

    And Al, I seem to remember that Mike Holmgren abandoned the Packers after they lost the Superbowl in 98 and took the whole front office with him. And didnt that Reggie White guy retire and then unretire and then get realeased from the Packers to go play with another team?! By god! Those muther fucking traitors. Those pieces of shit. I hope terrorists bomb their houses. Why arent there articles on their back stabbing asses every three seconds on this site?
