OH, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY.
I cannot believe I am talking about this guy. Again.

Oh wait, yes I can. Because I predicted it.
I honestly believe that Brett Favre is trashing his own legacy. Instead of being remembered as a great football player, he will be remembered as the guy who just couldn’t let it go.
I’m annoyed at what this could mean for the future of football. How many more times are we going to see this? How many players will now pull “a Brett Favre” to get whatever they want?
Let’s say you’re a football player. You’re not happy with the team you’re on. So you pretend you’re retiring. Then, just as a team is entering a new season, you create a media frenzy and pick a new team. Any team. But no… not just any team. Pick your old team’s biggest rival. Yes, that oughta do it. And don’t forget to somehow convince this new team to pay you $12 million a year.
I actually feel really sorry for his new Vikings teammates, who’ve all been in training camp for three weeks, busting their asses. Now, Brett Favre plops himself in the middle of it all and takes the attention away from everything and everyone else. Lovely. I feel especially sorry for the guys trying out to make the team as quarterbacks. He just effectively stole the dreams of some young kid who was hoping to make it (just as a third stringer!). Guess what? There’s no longer space for that guy on the team.
I am just SO SICK of hearing about Brett Favre. I didn’t think it was possible, but with this latest “coming out of retirement,” he has officially surpassed Tom Brady on my NFL Shit List.
Congratulations, Brett. You now annoy me more than any other NFL personality. You should be proud. And good luck when you play at Lambeau Field, you schmuck.
