Who cares about Farve? He took us to the super bowl and made many idiot decisions in said super bowl that lost us the super bowl. So why would we want to set ourselves up for failure again? He didn't even have a very good season. He's near 40 and we almost lost him a couple times last year to injuries. I would be surprised if he lasted half a season.
His antics are childish and not indicative of a true leader.

Get over it. It's not Favre creating the madness, it's the sports press. Blame the Pio, the Strib, Yahoo Sports, ESPN, all these media organizations needing to publish anything in order to generate views. So they publish anything. It's no different then the LeBron hoopla.

If you're sick of hearing about Brett Favre, stay away from anything that publishes sports for a while. It's that simple.

With that said, re: JP, yes a soldier's basic pay can be around 21K, but you're also not factoring in housing, food, etc etc. Remember that all those need to be factored in.

Are you talking about the Packers? Cause I don't remember watching the Vikings in the super bowl last year. Also, look up his stats from last year. Do you even watch football?

I am getting excited again as a fan. It is great to be a Minnesota sports fan. I love the twins and the Vikings the best. What a treat it was to watch Thome last night hit that monster shot against the wind. And the oportunity to watch the hometown boy Maur chase a World Series title. I hope they pull one out soon!
We have two very good sport franchises in the state.

I grew out of the NBA. They realy need to do something. I love March Madness, but don't care to watch the NBA finals.

I will be watching every snap this year and wish Favre the best. Anything he does from here on out is just a complete bonus to a great career. And to watch him stick it to the Packers was priceless..

NFC championships, whatever. He still made bad decisions which lost the game. He sucks. Vikings will always lead you on an emotional high and then fail in clutch situations regardless of the tools they are given. And pandering to his waffling butt just makes us look dumb. Get a new coach too while you are at it. Childress can be read like a book and has no nuts to make tough calls.

In football, if you aren't first, you're last. Only one team gets a W and the other doesn't matter.

Then why play a regular season and have seeds? Or a pro-bowl? Or a "player of the week" award? Maybe they should just have a double elimination tourney and be done with it?

Market forces decide what someone is paid. It doesn't seem fair on the surface, but when you look at investment/return (with the exception of our military heroes) it makes sense.

Are you kidding me? Where do you come up with this crap? I could care less how they pay Favre. He won't play in 2011, there won't be a season, duh~

They weren't, but that was the last time Favre was IN a superbowl.
