After beating around the bush for a year about the circumstances surrounding his unretirement, Brett Favre finally told Peter King of Sports Illustrated what we all knew was the truth:
"Part of me coming back last year, I have to admit now, was sticking it to Ted (Thompson),'' he said in a rather startling admission.
That wasn't so hard now, was it?
Make no mistake, Thompson has now been branded forever as the guy that drove Favre away from the Packers -- by Favre himself, which will only throw gasoline on this forever raging inferno.
I don't care how it happened, in hindsight it was the right move for the Packers organization, and with each new interview my boy hood hero chips away at his once pristine visage. It's a God damn shame the way this is playing out.
