Bob Sansevere: Brett Favre obsession leads to lies ... and more magic?

On his way out of the Vikings' parking lot at Winter Park, punter Chris Kluwe rolled down the window of his BMW and chirped, "Favre, Favre, Favre." He was mocking the media obsession with Brett Favre. Full Story

Stolen from Tim on another blog, but it's perfect!

You really can't blame the Vikings for using these embarrassing techniques. Who would readily admit their players are in Mississippi to enable the selfish self absorbed behavior of a 40 yr old diva??
The nation is laughing at you Vikings!!

what a sad and pathetic orginization .... beg! plead! send guys down there to grovel!..... I lived through the Viking teams of the 70's .... Bud Grant would NEVER had put up with the crap Favre pulls!.... The pride that those 4 super Bowl teams had is non existent today!... I'm a Packer fan .. Maybe I shouldn't care about the way the Vikings operate, but I do enjoy the rivalry and this current Viking organization puzzles me ..... Spin it any way you want, but Brett Favre is doing exactly what he did at Green Bay toward the end of his career there ... He's dictating, dominating, keeping himself in the spotlight and holding the Vikings hostage to his every whim ....... Get some pride Minnesota!

I really don't care anymore what Favre does or doesn't do. The NFL is just a couple of steps better than the NBA and WWF. Too many big egos and big bucks.

... and the funny thing is that from what I have been reading on these blogs tonight it seems that a majority of Viking fans agree with me ... they're sick of Favres antics and many have taken a "who cares if he's back" attitude ... Seems a good part of Viking nation would like Wilf and Childress to stop trying the "quick fix" and "get off the pot" when it comes to drafting and developing the future at QB .... TT took a gamble with Rodgers, and although it scared the hell out of Packer nation at the time and he'll always be known as "the man who dumped Favre" it's paid off well .... learn from him Ziggy ..

Not one Viking fan will be concerned how Favre got here after we routinely kick Puker Arse up and down the field once again this year. I hope it's at least three games. Favre can use you as a warm up for some of the better teams.

The only time any Viking fan will agree with you is when you grudgingly admit you were wrong after our Super Bowl victory. Until then, as usual, you will keep your yapper busy crowing, which is fine because it will be all the more for you to eat.

This Bret Favre love fest is sickening. I mean the Vikings brass slobbering all over Favre at the expense of Jackson and even Rosenfels is absolutely crazy. Favre is not going to win you a Superbowl and you may as well face it. Jackson hasn't proven that he is a bonafide NFL starter because the Vikings brass hasn't allowed him to establish himself yet. And he won't every be able to establish himself with all this Favre slobbering going on up there. Favre is a Hall of Famer true enough, but at 41 tell me, how much longer do you thing he can play? The Vikings need to prepare for the future and that future is with Jackson. At least give Jackson the opportunity to show whether he is your Qb of the future or not. Personally, I hope Favre and the Vikings fall on their virtual faces this season and it would serve them right for the way they are treating Jackson and Rosenfels. How in the heck can you tell me that saying Favre gives the Vikings a better chance to have a winning season not a knock on Jackson or even Rosenfels? all this double talk is sickening and points to most Vikings pundits as being hypocrites.

grow up will ya?.... try once to write a post without the personal attacks ... I wrote about your team from the past and the pride they had (maybe you don't remember them being your too young, as your posts reflect).. this Viking team can't hold a candle to those teams ... enjoy the high expectations with Favre back in town (although I didn't see him play yet) because most likely it will be followed once again by complete failure and disappointment ..... And as far as not one Viking fan being concerned, ya better go read the posts again junior ... There are more than you think who are not impressed with Favres return and wish Wilf would forget the experiment .... Have a terrific evening .......... GO PACK GO!!!!

Pride comes with winning. You Wisconsinshits were praying Favre would stiff the Vikings. So you could say- we told you so or you should have listened to us.
Vilify Favre, ridicule him, bring up the ghost of the
old trapper who is more Wisconsin than Minnesota, but
Viking fans will take Favre however we can get him because he is a winner and winning creates pride. Nobody remembers losers with pride. Where is Dan Devine by the way?
try one post without profanity ... it's not that hard ... That's what adults do ... Playground kids call names ......... I personally couldn't care less if Favre plays this season or not ... One title in 19 years isn't exactly a glowing accomplishment .... You want to keep trying the "quick fix" experiment, that's fine with me ... You want to pretend that age will never catch up with him, that's fine with me ... The Vikings had QB opportunitys through the draft and free agency but decided to gamble on Favre again ... As a Packer fan that works for me ... We have our future in Aaron Rodgers ... He's a hell of a good QB, and only 27 .... and there's more to pride than "winning games" ... The Vikes were "winning" a few years ago while the infamous "boat ride" was taking place ... and they were winning while Moss was pulling his stunts ect ect .... were you proud of those events?.... and what the hell does Dan Devine have to do with anything????...... have a great day tomorrow!!!

... one more thing .... We "told you so" last year and then watched while he threw away another season with that pick ... and he will eventually "stiff" you when he one day signs a "one day" contract and returns to Green Bay to be enshrined in the Packer HOF ... If you think he's gonna retire a Viking you really did just ride in on the last hay wagon ... and as far as "taking him any way we get him" that's only because he's the only glimmering hope you have of coming close to a title (which won't happen)......

First 2 seasons as starters ... Favre 37 tds, Rodgers 58 tds .... Favre 37 picks, Rodgers 20 picks .... Favre 6500 yds, Rodgers 8500 yds .... Last season Rodgers 30 tds and 7 picks was statistically better than any of Favre's 16 years as a Packer .... Rodgers (two season as a starter) lost the ball resulting in a loss in his first playoff game ... Favre (19 years as a starter) threw interceptions that led to loses in 2 of past 3 NFC title games .... Rodgers is the only player in NFL history to throw for over 4,000 yds in both of his first 2 seasons ..... Packers (11-5) were just a game back of Vikings (12-4) last season (both made the playoffs) although the Vikings claim to be the "best team in the NFL" and have a seasoned "legend" quarterback, while the Packers are the youngest team in the NFL and have a second year starter at quarterback .......... Brett who?......... The future is Aaron Rodgers!

Big deal, Favre makes our team and the NFL way more interesting. People who are sick of all the talk, turn off the radio, tv, internet, and put down the paper. Just tune in the 1st week of september. I do agree that Aaron Rodgers is a good quarterback, who could become great. But you Packer idiots must realize is the Vikings are in the 2-3 year window to win the Super Bowl. I don't think we could have drafted or traded for somebody BETTER than Favre, who would have gotten it done last year or this year. After this year, I think Favre will be done either way. BTW. Go look at Favre's stats last year and tell me how bad he is.

"Obsessive behavior can, at times, spawn other behavioral issues, such as a stretching of the truth. "
Bob just out of curiosity what would you have speculated if the coaching staff would of told you Hutch, Long, and Allen weren’t at practice. hmm
*Contract Dispute
*Injuries
*Suspended
*FAVRE doesn’t need practice so they are boycotting
I'm am 100% sure that the media would of came up with 1 of the 4 to fill the headlines with. It's no wonder they keep it,(what did you call it) "top-secret information".
As for "Obsessive behavior"....The definition of obsessive: a person who is continually preoccupied with a particular activity, person, or thing. That sure does sound like the media to me.
I'm pretty sure that every football player and coach throughout the NFL knows that the window to win a championship is only open for such a brief period and if you have a single peice missing while the window is open you are a wild card at best.
How about this for the Favre time table
* 12 men on the field ~ season over
* 2009 The media speculates..blah blah blah
* 2010 The media speculates..blah blah blah
* 2010 The media speculates..blah blah blah
* 2010 The media speculates..blah blah blah
* 2010 Favre lands in MPLS and Bob is mad he got lied to....Ironic!!!!

I'm not saying he's bad, Idiot!.........I think his ankle isnt right, and he could'nt resist the prodding, and fanfare of rolling into loserville, after talking to the 3 stooges!...I accually like the fact that he's comming back. It's just sad that he could have gone down as 1 of the best QB's in NFL history!........And he still will, but his legacy is forever tarnished!.........queen fans, dont know the real "bert" but THEY WILL!!!!!!!!!

Wow, Brad Childress lied! I'll alert the media..
..........oh wait, he lied TO the media.
Never mind!

The media is only obsessed with this story because
the fans are; they are just relaying what they
hear and see to the fans. Check out the other
article on here with the well over 300 posts
already just today. What the heck, let them have
their fun; it is preseason. The main story here
is........yes, once again..........Childress
has to lie about it. This man is either a flat
out pathological liar or he genuinely believes
that what happens with his team, yes HIS team,
is none of your blanking business. Childress
really believes that Zigi might own the franchise,
but he owns the TEAM. And he owes you, the fan,
absolutely nothing. This isn't the first lie
he has told.........hell, it isn't the 101st lie
he has told. If this man told me the sun rose in
the east this morning I would call NASA to see
if the earth had turned on its axis; I wouldn't
automatically believe a word he says. It is
getting harder and harder to be a Vikings fan
with this man in charge.
