    either that or Favre wants to wait and make a big announcement, and the Packers let the info out a little early.
    Probably kinda like when the vikings were unveiling their new jerseys.
    there was a date when they were going to make a big announcement, but someone found a backdoor to the nflshop.com pictures of what the jerseys would look like early.

    No kidding.
    Wouldn't there be live coverage on all the news outlets of John Madden being surgically removed from Favretard's ass. ;D

    “There’s nothing to it,” Packers spokesman Jeff Blumb told The Associated Press. “People who handle our Web site had set up a dummy page in the event he was to retire. They were asked to take down that page.”

    Net posting causes stir
    Which IMO, is exactly what they set out to do. They were the only ones reporting, ergo, more hits on their site & more $$$.

    Just a way for him to get talked about and what do ya know that evil ploy worked.
    The management must be really tired of him sitting on his hands about "do I stay or do I go " bit.

    On Thursday, the Packers' official Web site briefly reported he was retiring, but the page under the breaking news section was live for only a few minutes.

    Several Internet sites have screen captures of the page that show Favre's picture with a caption saying, "Packers quarterback Brett Favre has announced that he will retire."
    I wonder if any Cheeseheads committed suicide or started bawling when they saw the bogus news?

    That's one of the few Packer fans that probably didn't believe it until it was confirmed. However one has to believe his heart sank & there was a big lump in his throat when he first read it.
