    Skip, the human lip, Bayless just ripped Favre and the referee for slapping hands after the touchdown pass. It seems he thinks that this incident may smell of favoritism. What an idiot.

    it wasn't as if the ref looked like he was into it.

    Skippy the Dippy has always been and will always be a moron. He can't help himself.
    The whole thing caught the ref off guard but he was laughing at Brett's antics.
    If the NFL front office makes a comment then Skip can say something but if they are not concerned why should he care.

    My God! Is there SOOOOO little to write about that he TRIES to find a way to put a negative spin on this...?

    Where was he when the Referees took a bribe to make sure the Packers LOST to the Cowpies?

    May be Bayless is being paid off!... The unscrupulous bastard!

    He claims there will be a reprimand coming from the NFL offices. How could anyone seriously look at that, other than pure kid excitement of a veteran qb who is a future Hall of Famer? What a dufus this guy is.

    Time to put an * by all of Bretts records. I guess Brett befriended refs to gain an advantage over the opponent for the last 17 years.

    Those kind of spontaneous antics are part of Brett's likeability.
    It was hilarious and Bayless is an idiot.
    That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if the No Fun League does have something to say about it.

    yeah this should be common knowledge. he's a huge sensationalist, even for a sports analyst.


    agreed.

    Can anyone imagine the plodding horseface Payton Manning or pretty boy Brady doing anything as spontaneous as that?

    Refs blow HUGE calls throughout the year and we get, "My bad".

    I thought it was funny, but he shouldn't have done it. People like Bayless read too much into it, and then try to make a big deal out of it. But, in the heat of the moment, I can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing. Brett interacts with the refs quite often during games.

    I used to think Skip was the dumbest sports analyst out there...


    that wasn't fair. By limiting it to sports analyst that could indicate there were dumber people out there who just happened to have a different profession. So my most sincere apologies go out to the dumbest people of other professions. There is no way in hell your lack of intelligence rivals Skip's.


    Favoritism? Wow. Reprimand? Only if the ref is considered a prop.

    As I saw it, at first Brett didn't even realize it was a ref...he just wanted to slap hands w/ anyone who happened to be standing there...even if it was Tom Brady.

    They bumped...The ref stuck his hand out to balance himself/or Favre...and Brett playfully slapped his hand...They both laughed because of what the situation turned into...Sure, not good for the refs to be involved in such a thing...But it was CLEARLY and accident...

    Looks like this guy was just looking for something to sound-off about. You need a story everyday, I guess.

    Thats how i saw it........it was just a reaction by Brett.
    I guess they have to find SOMETHING negative to say about Favre.
    It's a REAL reach though.

    Even some of the ESPN crew think Bayless is a douchebag. Of course, I'm way ahead of them, I've always thought he was DB. Sad that people like DB are the state of the sports media.

    I felt like slapping the refs after the Dallas game.
