Favre Not Reporting


Peter King reports that Brett Favre will not be reporting to training camp on Sunday as originally planned.  Favre and the Packers agreed to postpone Favre’s arrival in Green Bay — and maybe put it off for good — so that Ted Thompson can resolve the situation.  After a month filled with Favre and his confidantes taking shots at Packer management, there are signs of a thaw.

“I had planned on reporting for the start of Packers training camp Sunday, but Ted Thompson asked if I would give him a couple of days to try to get the situation resolved. I agreed to do that. I don’t want to be a distraction to the Packers, and I hope in the next few days we can come to an agreement that would allow me to continue playing football.”

    And the beat goes on and on and on and on and ..! Bus Cook ( previous comment) has already given us a peek at his strategy. That is, make the most trouble he can for the Packers and wait untill they give him an unrestricted release. What ever happens to the Packers is of no concern to Favre or Cook. Getting the $12 million (Cook’s goal) and sticking it to Thompson (Favre’s goal). Favre is a complete jerk and the sooner he’s gone the better. And that comes from someone who didn’t really like Thompson. Favre has lied consistently throughout this period of agony.

    Add on:

    Fox Sports just reported that Mortenson’s interview with Favre indicated that Favre asked Thimpson yesterday, if he could come in to the facility. According to Favre, Thompson said, “Do you want to get me fired’? Does anyone with a brain believe that?

    The things Favre is reported to say in this story makes me wonder if the guy is delusional.

    Thompson was “shattered” at the suggestion Favre might report to training camp, and “pleaded” with him not to?

    I almost think they should let the Vikings have him, along with a warning to be careful of what they wish for…

    If Boston thought that the “Curse of the Bambino” was bad….

    If Chicago believes the “Curse of the billygoat” is bad….

    Wait until Wisconsin gets used to the “Curse of Brett Lorenzo Favre.”
