Enough is Enough! The sports world goes on attack over T.O. and yet you guys can't see an obvious ME, ME, ME in this????

Time is up! Brett is holding back young talent. Isn't that what they said about T.O. who was one of two healthy wide receivers for the Cowboys????? LOL!

Cancer. Distraction.

I'm looking for consistency and not bias in attacking someones character in the MEDIA and I just can't seem to find it.

He should play for the Vikings, it would be the first time I have ever cheered for the Vikings. And as for the quote ", to think of Brett Favre, a legend for the Packers, going to Minnesota? He won't be able to go back to, I think, Wisconsin to get inducted into the Packer Hall of Fame because they're going to be a little bit upset." They should not have let him go in the first place, so they should have nothing to be mad at but the idiots that let him go. Go Bret! Go Make them pay for not letting you play!

I think Brett should go for it. If he can play and wants to then He should go for it. What fun to play one more time and even better playing for the Purple.
Do it man!!!!!!!!

Go Favre ! How come everyone talks about Favre playing bad last season, when in reality he played better than most quarterbacks ever would have if they had experienced the same injury to thier throwing arm. Brett is a tough guy who plays through pain and tries his best to win, and I respect him for that. The Packers GM T.T. should be run out of Green Bay for forcing Brett off the team, locking him out of the team's locker room when he did try to come back, and acting like it's all Brett's fault. If Brett wants to keep playing, more power to him.

This is the most asinine argument against the guy returning. It assumes that after all these years, he doesn't realize that there are 16+ games, 50+ teammates, coaches, fans, media, etc. GB is just two big games on the schedule, meaningful to him, but in the end it's a question winning the most over 16. It comes down to this: is he healthy enough? does he want to play for them? and do they really want him?

Oh please Brett, do it, I can't wait for the stat line for the season showing more INTs than TDs. You almost made it last year, they were even. You can do it, Brett! No one is more deserving of you than the Vikes.

I agree. He knows as well as anyone how gruelling an NFL season is. There is no way that spite can be his sole motivation and the Vikes would be nuts to sign him if they think it's all about "spite."

Anybody hear the latest news? Apparently Brett has lost his spite! The good news is that everybody knows who the posers are now.
