"I am guilty of retiring early and there is a reason for that," Favre said, according to an excerpt provided to The Associated Press before the Monday night broadcast. "And the major issue is 'Why did he retire?,' and 'He asked for a release because he doesn't want to play in Green Bay.' That's not true. And I hope people are hearing this and saying 'OK, that clears it up."'(Source)This whole situation is crazy. Who would have ever thought that you would hear this kind of stuff? Favre is a God in Green Bay, but after all of his retirement/unretirement shenanigans, even some fans in GB are saying 'no' to Brett coming back. People are just sick of it like (Stu said) with Michael Jordan and Roger Clemens.
And how pissed do you think ESPN is that Fox News got this interview? I mean, Greta Van Susteren??
