In the only story that really matters, the Green Bay Packers want to end their long, national nightmare:
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported on its Web site that the team offered Favre “a substantial salary” to stay away. The report cited sources close to Favre.
Who cares if this is a rumor? There’s more chess pieces moving in this game than in a season of LOST. The annoying thing is just how sanctimonious whoever it is in charge of the Packers has always been. They are, and have been for a long time, the worst–run organization in sports.
Can you tell a boy who used to live in Wisconsin, who hated all things 49ers, and saw the plague of Walsh disciples (which has yet to end) writes this site? Bitter, much? You betcha.
Oh no, there’s no Madden curse. Nope.
Speaking of which, Farve only improves teams that aren’t Green Bay.
