    Which would you choose?

    1. Flip off a ref: $10G's

    1. Knock down a ref: $15G's

    3. Knee a ref in the grin & get ejected: $25G's

    4. Drill the ref in the back of the head with a football: $0, no fine (But only if you are Bret Favre)
    He did that??

    Yes he did. The play was over & he threw a pass to the referee, thinking he would catch it. The only problem was the ref had turned his back to him & the ball nailed him in the back of the head. I believe the ref threw a flag, but later picked it up & there was no penalty.

    The look on Favre's face was priceless. His eyes were huge & he covered his mouth, which was agape, with his fingers from both hands. He then ran up to the ref & got all kissy, kissy with him & appologized for what he had done.

    It was unintentional, but I couldn't help feeling that had that been a different QB, the penalty would have stayed.

    Hahaha I remember that, I was thinking about the other day actually. Brett was just tossing the ball forward and the ref happened to walk into it, and the reason why it got picked up was another ref saw the whole thing and explained the situation.

    The look on his face was amazing, I'm surprised that's not somebodies avatar here.
