I remember once while I was still in high school a friend of mine started dating an ex-girlfriend of mine. Now, I wasn’t exactly happy about it even though the two of us had been over for a while, and I wasn’t about to stand by and let it happen. So one night I called my friend and told him all the dirty secrets I knew about her, and even made some stuff up. It worked, he broke up with her the next day.
Looking back on it, it was incredibly immature and also a very selfish thing for me to do. I’m not proud of it, but hey, I was a teenager. You’re supposed to be immature and selfish when you’re a teenager. As for what Brett Favre’s excuse is, I don’t know. Painkillers?
Several sources have told FOX Sports that Favre earlier this year phoned the Detroit Lions prior to their battle versus Favre’s old team, the Green Bay Packers, and gave them a rundown of the nuances of what Green Bay does on offense. According to the sources, Favre actually spent over an hour on the phone with Lions coaches, who were connected with Favre by then-team president Matt Millen.
While the Lions still lost and the Packers and Favre’s replacement Aaron Rodgers played well, it’s still baffling that the Packers legend would spend such a significant chunk of time giving tips to an opponent of his long-time franchise.
Other teams the Packers have played had also heard about the Favre coaching clinic with Detroit. In addition, there have been rumors that Favre has spoken to other teams giving them information, but most of those teams insist they have not heard from the famed gunslinger.
Needless to say, the Packers aren’t exactly happy to hear this news.
“He contacted them? I don’t respect that,” Woodson said after the Packers’ victory over Indianapolis on Sunday. “If they call him and he gives them information, that’s one thing. But to seek a team out and to feel like you’re trying to sabotage this team, I don’t respect that. I know he’s been the greatest player around here for a long time, but there’s no honor in that.”
Obviously Favre denied all of this ever happened, but he’s full of crap. You know he did it. He’s been pretty bitter about his break up with the Packers for a while now, and you know it’s driving him crazy that they’re still in first place in the NFC North without him.
He’s probably drunk dialing Donald Driver at 3AM constantly, telling him how much he loves him, and what a mistake it was that they broke up. How do I know this? Because it’s what I did.
