    Count on the Vikes to stir things up just as the NFL was dropping to the bottom of the sports-ticker barrel. It is a huge stretch that Favre would ever end up in Minnesota anyway. I think if he leaves the Pack, it will be via trade or eventual contract expiration. They really don't want him ending up in the NFC North.

    I do, however, think that the Vikes bigwigs will play hardball when forced to do so. If this crap costs us draft picks, I would be surprised if they didn't do everything possible to snag him, fueled partially by spite.

    That said, I still don't think it'll happen. The Vikings will be fined, Favre will throw interceptions somewhere else, and things won't be much different then we thought they would be two weeks ago. I believe the punishment will fit the crime, and I don't think there was much (if any) harm done.

    Why would we get fined? They can't prove anything just a bullshit effort to draw attention away from themselves.

    As the days roll by, the Brett Favre saga seems to get stranger and stranger. Now the soap opera has shifted to a new level...

    But this isn't a court of law. They don't have to prove it. They handle each instance on a case-by-case basis, and determine if any punishment is necessary. I'm not sure what, if anything that we haven't seen, prompted this, but I'm sure it didn't come out of the blue.

    He is not officially retired. He never signed any papers. He is on some kind of reserve on the Packers roster.

    That's a great question..
    Even though he is retired, they own his rights for 2 more seasons.
    He is not allowed to discuss playing for a team with any other organization. However, he and Bevell can talk about:

    1)the current state of hip - hop
    2)the black struggle in America
    3)Who is hotter: Megan Good or that chick from Baby Boy

    all they want until the cows come home.

    Well if it is true then it is the rare occurrence where we can't get upset at the Packers, only
    to steal some of the words of Peyton Mannning,
    the liquored up offensive coordinator.

    I think the only way they can prove tampering is if Favre cooperates with the packers. This looks like an effort by Thompson to make sure Favre isn't playing against him on September 8th. I guess it would look like tampering if he got released and immediately signed with us. In any case, screw the packers!
