As one who has given Brett Favre the benefit of the doubt with his waffling over the years, I have officially developed a distaste for him.
Twenty one days ago, Favre said to ESPN’s Ed Werder “the decision not to play for the Vikings was incredibly difficult, and in the process he indicated that he is unlikely to ever consider playing again in the NFL.
“It was the hardest decision I’ve ever made,” Favre said. “I didn’t feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable. I would like to thank everyone, including the Packers, Jets and Vikings — but, most importantly, the fans.”
“I had to be careful not to commit for the wrong reasons,” Favre told Werder. “They were telling me, ‘You went through all this, you had the surgery and you’ve got to finish it off.’ But I have legitimate reasons for my decision. I’m 39 with a lot of sacks to my name.”
Well, apparently not enough sacks. Apparently the reasons weren’t that legitimate. And now he’s a Viking.
Ridiculous. Give me a break. I’m officially tired of the guy. I’m rooting against him. And, most importantly, I will NOT be selecting him for my fantasy team, the Globo Gym Purple Cobras. I have legitimate reasons for not taking him. It’s the hardest decision I’ve ever made to not take him.
Unless he’s there in the sixth round.
