Brett Favre Gives His Side Of The Story, Seems To Almost Admit He's A Complete Traitor
Brett Favre decided at his weekly press conference to finally address the report by FoxSport's Jay Glazer that he had called the Lions early in the season to give them tips about what to expect from the Green Bay offense in their upcoming game.
While Favre of course denies Glazer's report, he does give us the rather odd story that during that week Matt Millen invited him on a camping trip. And he also says how Millen asked him about how Favre and the Packers attacked the Lions defense last year, which Favre apparently answered. I don't know about you, but that sounds pretty damn close to being an open admission by Favre that he gave away info to the Lions.
Plus, let's also think about this rationally. You've got Matt Millen, who was in desperate need of a big win in Week 2 against a bitter division rival because it was apparent he was on the verge of getting fired (he was fired a little more than a week later), going on a hunting trip with Favre who was well known to be extremely bitter about being traded away by the Packers. Think that's sheer coincindence? Not in the least. If this was a murder case, Favre would be behind bars already.
It's also ridiculous that Favre says he's forgotten the Packers playbook. He's completely lying. It's often common practice in the NFL that teams pick up players off of waivers to extract as much info from them as they can about the old team they used to play for.
ESPN - which originally banned employees from reporting on Favre - is also finally reporting on the story now as well, but only after Favre finally addressed the media today. Either way, that didn't stop one ESPN personality from weighing in before today. Yesterday, Dan LeBatard said on his ESPN radio show he was completely behind Glazer's story.
Anyway, while we may never be sure if Glazer's story is 100% true, it seems pretty likely at this point that Favre did indeed share something with the Lions.
And it also seems more than apparent that Brett Favre is pretty much always looking out for #1, and no one else.
