Brett Favre Admits Fault For Divorce From The Packers
My reaction could be summed up as:
Luckily for me, Favre wasn't the only one willing to blame someone other than Favre for the tension between the team that didn't want the man that didn't want the team:
Retired quarterback Brett Favre is taking some of the blame for his ugly departure from the Green Bay Packers.
Favre told WGR 550-AM in Buffalo on Thursday that he was "at fault" in the breakup, though he says he feels like "both sides had a part in it."
But DO NOT get the impression that Rodgers likes Favre. As anyone who's ever read Nonsportsmanlike Conduct! knows, Aaron Rodgers doesn't like anyone, including cancer patients. So while he's willing to text Favre, he doesn't see himself as a mediator, according to that same article.
I was going to create a series of fake texts between Favre and Rodgers to demonstrate that, but the apps to do that turn out to be really annoying, and also I found this ACTUAL text message exchange:
That's supposedly a set of texts between Minnesota 'quarterback' Christian Ponder and his wife, after Rodgers became worth more than all the rest of the state of Wisconsin this year, in a move that will doom the Green Bay Packers to Colts-like upper-level mediocrity for the next 7 years.
The joke is somewhat less funny when you realize that it would take 151 years for the average person on unemployment to make as much as Christian Ponder makes in a single year. Ponder -- a bottom-tier quarterback on an afterthought of a football team -- makes $192,000 per month.
Feel better about yourself now? Have fun at work today! Hey, maybe wear that NFL-team logo tie you got for your birthday last year!
