    Farve

    Kfan just announced that PFT posted that Farve will retire.

    From PFT:
    A page on the Packers official web site announces that quarterback Brett Favre will retire.
    However, there's no mention of it on the front page of the team's official site.

    So either it's accurate or the team has a dummy page ready in the event Favre quits or someone has hacked into the Packers' official site and posted a phony announcement.

    EDIT: It now appears that the link is password protected. It looks like it was put up accidently and are now trying to fix it.

    Re: Farve

    I have mixed feelings about this.
    I'm happy because Favre was on fire last season and I don't want to have to go against that version of Favre again.
    I'm unhappy because as of lately Favre has been rather inconsistant.
    one good season followed by one terrible season.
    He could very well have a terrible one this year.
    Also we don't know what Rogers is capable of really.
    Hopefully he's a bust!

    All in all thats probably a good thing.
    Too bad he announced early, not entirely screwing over the organization.
    Now they'll probably draft another qb in the mid rounds and be ready for Roger's eventual failure

    Re: Farve

    This actually got mentioned on the radio today.
    Our local sports announcer said that he didn't believe it as Lord Favreeeeee had been spending alot of time in GB this off season working out when he normally spends his whole offseason down south.

    He believes that is a big indicator that Lord Rettly will make one more push this year and be done.

    Were is that damn Packer fan when you need him?
    Probably working on his truck.
    ;D

    Quit helping him until he gets some more info for us.

    Re: Farve

    The non-beta version of the PFT rumormill has this image of what the "breaking news" section of Packers.com looked like before they took the page down.

    If you look closely, the text on the right reads:
    Due to the magnitude of today's Packer news, Packers.com is offering this Breaking News page in lieu of our normal Packers.com site. With minimal graphics and no ancillary content, page loads should be quick, even in this period of high demand. All news stories from today will be listed right here on the Breaking News page. If you are seeking archived Packers.com material you may still access the regular Packers.com site here.
    This, to me, smells like someone hacked the Packers' site, and was trying to come up with an excuse for why their page looked nothing like the rest of Packers.com.
