Last night before falling deep into slumber, Rotoworld displayed this link on their homepage: Jets in 'Serious Talks' to get Favre. Upon clicking the link I was overjoyed to read the following:
"The Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the only teams that have permission to speak with Favre about a potential trade. Favre's agent, Bus Cook, has been in talks with the Jets, who have shown a growing interest, but has not been working closely with the Buccaneers, according to two sources."Wow. If there was anything that could've sent me into a more peaceful slumber last night... I haven't found it yet. "Broadway Brett." It was destiny... that is... until I woke up to get a glass of water at 8 am... That's when my sweet dreams came crashing to the ground.
Rotoworld, now, featured a different headline for Brett Favre. This one a bit less-appetizing: Favre shuns Jets, considering $20M offer. "Shuns?" Shuns?
shuntr.v. shunned, shun-ning, shunsTo avoid deliberately; keep away from. See Synonyms: escape
So was all that bullshit about "the itch" to play again just because the Packers hurt Favre's ego? I definitely think so. Take a look at the first part of Favre's interview with Greta Van Susteren:
Basically, here's what I'm getting from this:
- There was a breakdown of communication
- The Packers moved on
- Favre's upset that they moved on in such a quick fashion.
Instead of spoon feeding ESPN and the starving media monsters all of this non-sense about an "itch" to come back and play football in the NFL again, let's call it what it is: You want to play for the Packers or no one else.
However... you didn't do that. No one did... and now my day is ruined because I have to get this news over a month later from Wendi Nix:
To wrap all this nonsense up, I'd just like to thank Brett Favre, ESPN, and any other media outlet for wasting my, and everyone else's, time.
