    packerfan1245.... Do you own a white cane with red stripes? If not... I'll be sure to get one to you.

    How are you reading my posts anyway? They aren't in braille.

    Can't read ya mind. When I don't acknowledge your comment, you say its because of lack of proof. When I do, you say its towards someone else. How ironic.

    Just something I found interesting..On his own web site he is asking for people to keep in mind the Packers and Ted is his boss and wants it to be reflected that way..And to tone down the hate talk towards Ted..

    If he does read this forum, wondering if Ryan got a request from Brett or his "people" to say tone it down..

    Hey Jim.....you know that as SOON as Brett said he was ticked at Ted for not getting Moss, that most of the people on his site would form a lynch mob! Brett HAD to know that too.
    Heck.......i haven't exactly been a happy camper myself!
    To me the REAL scary thing is that some "fanatic" might actually try to harm TT because of all this flak.
    I wonder how this all is gonna turn out?

    Yes......he might have some legit reasons, besides being ticked at Ted. Thats the problem just being fans, we usually don't get all the facts, and make judgements based on the trickle of info we do get.

    Packers | Favre to miss minicamp
    Mon, 14 May 2007 13:47:52 -0700

    Updating a previous report, Lori Nickel, of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre (ankle) will not attend the team's upcoming minicamp because he will be attending his daughter's graduation.

    Missing a 3-day minicamp for his daughters graduation? WTF!! Cut him. Graduation happens every year! He can watch one of his other children graduate. HE SHOULD BE THERE!

    I'm throwing away all my Favre pictures and ... hell EVERYTHING!!












    Okay, so that was enough Oannes'ism for the day.... down to reality, I think its cool he's going to his graduation, to a kid that means a lot. My father won't be at my college graduation and it hurts like hell because its something I'm extremely proud of myself over.

    Here is something else i heard on local TV.
    Mini camp is the 18th.........her graduation isn't until the 25th.
    So........sounds like he just doesn't want to come, and is using this as a reason to give people.
    I really don't care that much, but it does leave more questions.

    Brett should be held to the same standards that other players are, he has been allowed to do what he want for too long. He should be in camp creating a good chemistry with our receivers not at home drinkin' coke and getting fat.

    its only ok for Favre to miss Mini camp for his daughters graduation, if its ok for Carlton Brewster to miss mini camp for his daughters graduation.

    if Favre gets a free pass because hes favre then i think its crap. if he gets leave, because the organization is ccol with players missing mandatory meetings due to family conflict then i think its ok. and i hope that any player on the team would get the same treatment.

    Favre has more than enough time to participate at minicamp.

    That is odd but found this http://www.wfrv.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=ea7bed5a-9c28-4f6a-aa18-3f565d118146

    Brett Favre plans to skip the Green Bay Packers' mandatory minicamp this weekend, saying the move is not related to his frustration with the team's unwillingness to complete a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss.

    Favre told the Biloxi (Miss.) Sun-Herald that because he is unable to practice while recovering from offseason ankle surgery, he is going to stay home with his family in Mississippi.

    "They were going to have me sit out anyway," Favre said, in a story that appeared on the paper's Web site on Tuesday. "To be honest, we have (daughter) Brittany graduating in two weeks. Instead of going up there and not doing anything, I will be better off being at home because of graduation parties and banquets."

    Favre said he isn't skipping the minicamp as a protest with the team's front office.

    "I am frustrated," Favre told the paper. "But being frustrated and not going are not related."

    I fear this is only to deaden the media storm, and that Favre in reality isn't participating because he is angry.

    You know, if Favre had to rely on commercial airlines for the right connections(like the rest of us) I could understand his reasons re graduation vs. mini-camp. But he has his own jet. He can make any connections he wants to. No way camp could screw up the graduation. In the final analysis, Favre doesn't see any benefit to himself by attending camp so he won't go. Fine...but that should prevent his criticizing any teammates for lack of dedication during the season. Sauce for the goose....

    Every year the mini-camp thing comes up and every year it's said over again that BF has been give that time off and that there is no big need for him to be there.

    How could him being pissed have really anything to do with him behaving the same as last year when he wasn't pissed?

    Just Out! Brett Favre doesn't like min-camps. (Written 1994.)
