(some links in case you have no clue whats going on.)I'm distraught!
As a LOYAL Vikings fan, I have been keeping my eyes and ears open for news since Brett Favre announced his retirement, again. I told myself that there was no way... no way he'd come out of retirement, again, and that there was no way I'd hear talk about the Vikings signing him, again... I can't do this for a second year in a row. He became so hated after he 'retired' last year then decided he wanted to play again... now he is "at this time retired", again and there are rumors all over about him playing another year - with the Vikings... maybe. So he'll be even more hated and this time he'll be hated while he's a Viking?! No one is talking though... how the hell do we always end up in these shitty situations?
A horrible coach, a kid who has failed at QB (Jackson), talk of moving to LA (whether you think it will happen or not), the inability to get a new stadium, constant headline making activities by players... and now talk again of Favre.
I want attention as much as the next person, actually probably more, but I don't do stupid shit like this to get it! He's had his moment; he was great, [to some] he was a God, he had an arm like no other... is it really worth destroying, whatever is left of, a reputation just to throw it in Green Bay's face? Can people still follow him after this shit... 2 years in a row? I hate the Packers too, that's what Vikings fans do... but I'd gladly back The Pack if Brett is a Viking.
I said it last year and I'm saying it again this year... if Brett Favre ends up wearing my Purple and Gold, I'm done. It'll be hard to become a Vikings fan [ever] again if they make this stupid decision... I don't want a super bowl win if he is the one at QB - He's washed up, half injured [aka old], a self-righteous asshole that no one cares about anymore... and if you do, screw you!
I really can't take this... day in and day out... all anyone is talking about. UGH. I'd rather hear about the pig flu or the horrible state of our sinking economy!
Extra note: If Brett Favre does, in fact, play football again... does this mean one more season of John Madden announcing?
