So, Pacman Jones never got convicted of anything and he got thrown out of the league for a full season...

Now Favre doesn't have a Packers issued phone? Well how in the hell do the Packers access his phone records?

Trade him and put it behind you.

Wonder if anyone in Vegas (or England) is offering odds on whether Matt Jones gets suspended.

If there is, my money's on "No."

And shouldn't Favre be suspended for aiding and abetting tampering - which, unlike "making it rain" in a nightclub, is pure, unadulterated cheating?

That will never happen either.

Favre's going to report to training camp this weekend, according to reports. Only the Jets and Bucs have expressed interest in him.

You mean that neither the Chiefs nor the Bills are in the mix?

I guess there are worse things than being an Eagles fan!

So Favre isn't reporting to camp to give the Packers "a couple of days." Sigh. Who do you all think is the victim and villain here?

Favre is clearly the villain. My understanding is that a lot of casual fans are backing him, but I don't know anybody who seriously follows football that doesn't think Favre is acting like a douchebag. I don't think he understands the damage he is doing to his reputation right now.

The thing that irks me the most is how the guys on ESPN keep trying to paint a picture of the Packers not letting poor 'ol Brett play ball this year when it has been reported that they gave Brett every opportunity to return earlier in the year and he opted to retire just days before the Packers were expected to announce he was returning. I just do not understand how he expected the Packers to hold a roster spot and cap space for him in the event he decided to change his mind.

Does anyone else find the timing of his wanting to comeback a bit curious? I found it interesting that it was immediatly after the Packers had wrapped up their last offseason mini-camp prior to training camp opening that he decides he wants to come back and play.

I am amazed at how many people have villified Favre. This guy is an all-time QB legend. Not to mention that he was a Pro bowler last year. The Packers are idiots. This is really simple. If you think Aaron Rodgers is a better QB than Favre at this moment then you trade Favre for the best deal you can get. At the most he will probably be around for only a couple of years. On the other hand you have put Rodgers in a no win situation. In order to do better than Favre last year he must make the Super Bowl. Anything less is a step back. If Brett is there, people will be howling for him at the first sign of trouble for the kid.

Well, I think one of the reasons Favre is getting vilified here is because he keeps going public with every little thing that happens. He is trying to use the press to turn the fans against management and he is not really giving the Pack a chance to resolve the whole issue behind close doors.

I'm so sick of this who Favre ordeal. I like him and think he was one of the best, if not the best quarterback ever, but you just have to think that he's losing his mind. Now, I understand he's coming off of his best season of his career, but playing for another team would hit a new low. The Packers are going into a different direction, for better or for worse, and I'd expect Favre to just hang up the cleats and look back at what he did for the Cheeseheads. I just feel like it's a big shame what is happening.

Packers President flew down to MS to beg Favre not to come to camp. This story will never die. There appears to be no resolution in sight. The Packers should just settle for a trade, even if it's less than they want for Favre. That way, they can choose the team he plays for (i.e. no divisional rivals). However, you have to think teams are waiting for the Packers to fold and just release him. The risk in all this is the Packers are hedging their season and future on Aaron Rodgers, and if he doesn't live up to the billing, they are going to look incredibly stupid for shunning a Pro Bowl QB.

The problem is the Packers are crazy if they think a team is going to give them a #1 pick for a guy who may actually decide to retire after next season. The Dolphins had to settle for less in return for Jason Taylor simply because he is talking about retiring after his current deal is up in 2 years.
