Just because Brett Favre has officially been reinstated by Roger Goodell and will be reporting to Packers training camp this morning, that doesn’t mean this entire situation is going to become any less of a joke then it already has been. Don’t get me wrong, Favre has every right to change his mind about playing football, but the Packers have every right to tell him to buzz off.
The problem, of course, is trying to spin things to make it look like the Packers aren’t telling the beloved Brett to go screw himself. You can’t really blame team president Ted Thompson for having no idea how to handle this situation. So since Ted is way over his head, there really is only one logical step the Packers could take: hire former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.
The Green Bay Packers have apparently decided they need a little help on the public relations front when it comes to handling the ongoing Brett Favre saga
FOXSports.com has learned that the Packers will employ former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer for one month as a consultant.
And you thought this story couldn’t get any more ridiculous. Shame on you! Considering Fleischer was able to handle the press while serving for George W. Bush during 9/11 and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, handling the Favre fiasco should be a cakewalk.
“All the evidence gathered gave President Thompson every right to feel that Mr. Favre was hiding WMD’s inside his locker, and just because we haven’t found them yet, doesn’t mean they aren’t there. President Thompson is very confident they will be uncovered soon. Next question…Mr. King?”
There is no truth to the rumor that the team will be hiring Donald Rumsfeld to help prepare for an invasion of Minnesota.
