I don't know this "Brett Favre" you're all referring to. Every time they show the Packers quarterback on ESPN, he's always this 50 year-old looking dude.

Must be hard to scramble with a walker.

Small purses or fanny packs will be allowed, but they must fit in a box smaller than the top half of the newspaper page youre reading.

What's a "newspaper"?

Go Pack Go!

"Second and seven, one minute to go, Packers on the opposing team's 37 yard-line and down by two, with two timeouts left. Favre back to pass, and he scrambles back to his own 45 yard line, jumps up in the air and with a linebackers hand in his face heaves a long moon spiral into quadruple coverage, and it's intercepted!!!! What a disappointment for this the greatest tactician in NFL history..."

Brett, I love your attitude, but stop trying to be Superman and win the whole damn thing yourself.

Relatedly, intelligence and proper hygeine also outlawed at Lambeau field
 
2005-08-11 07:59:08 PM  
And there it is again! Chastain's picture supports my theory that everytime Favre's in front of a camera, he has a dip of Skoal in his mouth.

Seriously, watch for yourselves. Right in the front, lower lip. Hell, watch "There's Something About Mary", he's got a big ol' dip in.

/he's a decent QB, too.

Man, talk about someone having fun and playing for the love of the game.

He is really one of the only reasons I still watch professional sports...

yeah right, submitter. brett favre is basically a god in wisconsin. nothing he does could make packer fans blaspheme against him.
 
2005-08-11 08:00:18 PM  
This headline is funny to me because it is so true. I don't know how many times I've yelled, "what was that?" at the TV, just after an errant throw is being returned for six points by a gentleman from the opposing team.

Bravo, submitter.
 
2005-08-11 08:01:20 PM  
OK, so 'video cameras' are banned but 'still cameras' are not.

Who's the genius that is going to play with your new cam at the gate to determine if its capable of shooting movies.

Next they'll be banning all 'video tape recorder machines.'

Yeah, the NFL team you quarterback for has done much better against the Packers.
 
2005-08-11 08:09:26 PM  

"Barred from stadium
Video cameras

Knives, guns or ammunition..."


If this were were the Oakland Raider's stadium, then the ban on guns and knives would mean they'd be playing games with no fans in the stands.


And fark you, Randy Moss.

I used to at least respect Brett Favre, but after he ripped Javon Walker for holding out, I changed my attitude. That dumb hick needs to retire already anyway: maybe with the cap money he won't be eating up for making stupid/crappy plays (6 INTs against the Rams in the playoffs; the goofy illegal forward pass that he just grinned about like an idiot in the playoffs against a division rival) they can pay Javon more. If I were Javon, I would've told him to stuff it, because the truth is that Brett's getting paid. No need to kiss management's asses on top of that.

I also support TO, which I know is unpopular. But I have to say, has become somewhat of my hero, even if he is sort of a jerk for throwing a nice guy like Donovan McNabb under the bus (though to be fair, even though I like Donovan, the man DOES play with two hands around his neck in key spots).

Now, people get on TO for being greedy and wanting to renegotiate his contract, many of whom use the argument that he should "be a man" and honor what he has signed. Of course, they conveniently forget that NFL teams don't guarantee those contracts, and can cut you whenever they find it convenient. So I'm all for TO getting his fair market value if he feels that's what he deserves. He's not beholden to his contract if the Eagles' management isn't either, and those who would argue otherwise are hypocrites.

Thus, I find it funny when Andy Reid and Joe Banner bluster about how it's either pay or sit, but then TO goes out and is essentially FORCING them to trade him. This is hysterical. If management doesn't want players holding out and causing chaos among their teams, then they need to guarantee more money in the contracts they issue to their players.


Got off topic there, but it needed to be said. Oh, also...GO SEAHAWKS!

If every player was paid what the player thought he was worth, every team in the league would be 50 mil over the cap. Contracts aren't guaranteed? It's all bonus money now, which is guaranteed, unless you pull a Ricky Williams.
 
2005-08-11 08:26:29 PM  
I'm a life long Packers fan, but I also have to admit that not only does Favre complete passes to the opposing team quite often but he also does so at the worst possible times (i.e OT in a playoff game). IMO though, he more than makes up for it by pulling crazy shiat like using a measurement call as a free timeout and getting a pass to someone (usually on his own team) while three people have him almost completely covered.

A contract is never one sided. If a player wanted guaranteed money he could get it, however he would not make as much. The athlete is giving up that security because they are confidant that they are the best ever and will not be cut.

That's clever, the whole King to Queen switch there, that's a funny one.

But the fact remains, our quarterback can beat up your quarterback.

And just to throw everyone off,

GO CHARGERS!

Oh, and it looks like Ahmad Green is already in midseason form, dropping it on the ground on his what third carry?... go Packers, and take Mike Sherman with you!!

Brainfizzle, Quinzy

Base money does in fact make up a significant part of the contract, and most money is not tied up in signing bonuses. As for the amount of guaranteed money versus base salary, that doesn't matter. The truth of the matter is that the team can release a player without paying him at any time they want (hit against the cap being irrelevant in this case). So why isn't it just as fair to renegotiate a contract in the middle of said contract, as long as the team can leave the contract they have with you at any time. Shouldn't "if you sign it, then stick with it" apply to the owner as well as the player?

Now, I do understand that giving completely guaranteed contracts cause problems to arise too (see baseball and basketball...uh, in the NBA alone, I can name Mark Blount, Bonzi Wells, and soon, Jerome James as people who played for big guaranteed contracts and then stopped caring as soon as they got them. I think the real solution is in guaranteeing a base salary no matter what, with a league-wide standard for giving huge performance bonuses, so that you only make as much as you really deserve. Of course, then people might play for stats instead of wins. Nothing's perfect.

But at this point in time, in the situation TO, Javon, Hines Ward, whoever is in, they owe it to themselves to make as much as they can when they can, because they could be out tons of money just as quickly.

Good4u: But the fact remains, our quarterback can beat up your quarterback.

Really, we should stop all this "playing the game" nonsense and just let the QB's sort out the championship in a steel cage deathmatch.

/Akili Smith could beat up Boomer Esiason too.

Any time football team owners pretend that individual players are OH SO GREEDY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE SPORT while at the same time raising ticket prices, making hot dogs five bucks apiece, and leeching off the taxpayers to get a new 500 million dollar stadium built for their team, I take perverse joy in their misfortune. As far as Lurie, Banner, and whoever else are concerned, TO acts as this misfortune that I love oh so much. Ha ha.

T.O. probably pissed away millions of dollars in sponsor cash by doing everything possible to make the fans in Philadelphia hate him. The man had a rainbow to the pot of gold to follow, and instead, he biatched about the rain.

Stupid.

That's the first thing I thought of when I visited that link. The next thing I noticed was the that the email link to Mrs. Lope is still active. Someone answering those? Will it bounce back as undeliverable? Maybe a "No user 'sue' at host" message?

in related news, not many people give a shiat about rip off ball games when they can watch it at home with their friends, complete with hdtv, big doobies and loads of beer so much cheaper than a stadium, it's practically free.

You mean the tax the people voted and agreed to take on to support their team? Yeah, big leeches there. FYI, it wasn't even a new stadium, so I have no clue what team you are talking about.

Wisconsin here.

I think Favre could start Javon Walker on fire, saw off Ahman Green's buttery fingers, and shoot a deer rifle at the practice dummies the Packers call a secondary, and nobody in this damn state would CARE. Yes, he's as much of a god as the ones that most people in this state go to church on Sunday to worship...

I'll do you one better, jimmiekaska,

I bet Brett Favre could admit to being an alcoholic and a drug addict, so hooked on vicodin that he pulled the half digested pills out of his own vomit to take them AGAIN, and he'd still be considered a flawless God in Wisconsin.
