Yet Another Brett Favre Comeback? (I wish I were Joking)

I seriously wish I were joking about this. Really, I hope beyond hope that this is just the beginning and  the end for this next media cycle. Even an NFL lockout cannot stop the ole gunslinger from allegedly playing the attention whore card.

The Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Jets, who will be this time? Does anyone even want him? Maybe Favre’s 1,875th retirement and comeback will be much less annoying this time around, as it comes at a time when there is ZERO football news.

Brett Favre Is A Better Bargain Than Matthew Stafford

jenn sterger

Jenn Sterger recently met with NFL officials for three hours in an undisclosed location in New York. It is arguable what’s the bigger issue for Favre: this or the Minnesota Vikings current record of 3-5?

Their opponent, the monsters of the midway are actually limping into the game even though their wins and losses are inverse of the Vikings. Most sports books in Las Vegas place Minnesota as a slight favorite even though Percy Harvin is doubtful.

Although, NFL injury reports are about as reliable as investment advice from Bernie Madoff.

Matthew Stafford went down last week in the Detroit Lions loss to the Jets. He once again injured his right shoulder, which haunted him earlier in the season. Shaun Hill is ready to take over once again in his absence.

Minnesota Vikings Defeat: Blame It On the Rain…Yeah Yeah

adrian peterson

Brett Favre was too little, too late to provide a victory for the Minnesota Vikings. It seemed as if they just ran out of time rather than losing the game. The torrential downpour at the new Meadowlands Stadium hurt the men in purple much more than their counterparts.

Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger Incident Puts ESPN, Roger Goodell on the Spot

sterger

As we found out yesterday, the Jenn Sterger allegations against Brett Favre are indeed true. Deadspin delivered the goods, and the only way Favre could be innocent, is if some elaborate and carefully orchestrated conspiracy/cover-up were at work. You know those people who don’t believe in the moon landing? Or think O.J. was framed? Or believe 9/11 was an inside job? The conspiracy would have to be that complex.

So now that the bomb has been dropped and the mushroom cloud is smoking, time to deal with the fallout.

Let’s overlook the fact that Sterger looks EXACTLY like Deanna Favre on a 15 year delay with fake breasts (and later, sans fake breasts) for a moment. Yes, this story is very sophomoric, but both ESPN and the NFL are accountable here. Because it’s also serious.

Roger Goodell has been attempting to legislate morality in his league for some time, and ESPN has become a sports marketing company; and less a sports news corporation these past few years. It’s time for both to go to work.

Deadspin Claims Favre left Jenn Sterger sexually creepy photos/messages

sterger

On a day that everyone is talking about Brett Favre, his indecision, and his alleged retirement/fake retirement publicity stunt (or whatever you want to call that media mush)…this happens! And by this, I mean allegations that could conceivably take the biggest Favre story of the day, crush it, and grind it up into dust due to it’s enormity. If true, and enough smoke is visible now to make us believe there’s a legitimate fire burning here- this will overshadow everything Favre related.

Deadspin’s A.J. Daulerio claims that The Daily Line’s Jenn Sterger, the infamous Florida St. Cowgirl who rode a screen capture of her large artificial chest into 15 minutes of internet fame, and then generated a media career from those 15 minutes, claims former Packers legend and Minnesota Vikings QB BRETT FAVRE SENT PICTURES OF HIS YOU KNOW WHAT to Sterger’s cell phone; and also left the sideline princess creepy, borderline stalkerish sounding voicemails. This allegedly occurred when both were members of the New York Jets organization.

If Sterger releases the evidence, as Daulerio is aggressively cajoling her to do, let’s see how the NFL spin can this damaging information about their silver-haired fox.

DON’T Believe Favre Retirement HYPE!

Brett Favre-vikings

I don’t buy this garbage. Not for one second. He’s not really retiring. How do I know? Because Favre is an attention whore. Plain and simple. Even HIS OWN AGENT called him one.

Well, he specifically called Favre a drama queen, and “attention whore” is a common synonym for that word. Here’s one of the word “drama queen’s” definitions according to Urban Dictionary.com

Someone who turns something unimportant into a major deal. Someone who blows things way out of proportion when ever the chance is given.

Sounds an awful lot like the current Minnesota Vikings, and long time Green Bay Packers QB, doesn’t it? Isn’t it great when the people in the NFL closest to the celebs we hate feel the exact same way that we do about that celeb’s deluded self-absorption?
