(Thanks to reader Ron LaCanne for pointing this out). Read this from WTMJ’s Jay Sorgi. I think we’re getting a bit closer to understanding more about why Favre has been behaving like he has:
People will be asking Favre lots of questions, and according to Newsradio 620 WTMJ’s Bill Michaels, Favre will have lots to say – some of it not so nice in the Packers’ view. Recently, the Packers hired former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer as a consultant to help handle the Favre situation and a possible upcoming firestorm in the press coming directly from Brett Favre’s mouth. “A person close to Brett said that he’s eventually going to talk about this,” said Newsradio 620 WTMJ’s Bill Michaels on Wisconsin’s Morning News Wednesday. “He said, ‘They didn’t hire Ari Fleischer for what’s been done. They’ve hired Ari Fleischer for what’s about to be said’. “Eventually, there’s a part two to all this. I don’t think it’s over.”
While I presently sit here quite frustrated with Favre for even mentioning going to the Vikings and other things, I have restrained myself from blasting him here totally because I continue to believe there is missing information out there that may be needed before making a firm judgment. I think we’re going to hear something really, really ugly and my guess is that it may be compelling enough to turn a good number of people against the organization. You don’t just hire someone like Ari for a simple case of transition.
