    I turned on ESPN Radio while I was cleaning and heard that Favre requires ankle surgery to play this season. He is currently undecided whether he wants to get it and play or just retire.

    This is just breaking so not to much info...

    But this MIGHT be a huge issue for this reason..

    Say its a long rehab, more than likely he will need extra time to get in shape..

    Will he still try to skip out on all the training camp?

    Part of me says he's a diva, wants attention, and is just saying this to make himself look like an even bigger "Iron Man." Am I being too hard on Favre?

    I agree with what you said. If he actually needs the surgery, I doubt he could skip training camp and come back and be effective. Also, if this forces him to retire...the Vikings are doomed!

    Yup, he built in an excuse to miss all of training camp. My guess is he'll return right around mid to late August.

    I sepecially loved this quote:

    "We have spoken,'' Favre said in an e-mail to Werder. "To play again, I would need the surgery, as I suspected. This decision would be easy if not for my teammates and the fans and the entire Vikings staff. One year truly felt like 10 -- much like Green Bay for many years. That's what I was missing in my heart I suppose, a [sense] of belonging.''

    So after being worshipped by fans for more than a decade, he didn't feel like he belonged? Seriously, what an *******!

    The drama starts again! Brett Favre!

    Maybe he will be back maybe he won't be back

    ESPN and Yahoo sports are both reporting that he needs to have ankle surgery to play next year!

    Can somebody post a link for me as I still don't have the 10 min threads required to post links!

    I think he meant as a Jet.

    But, still, he felt AS comfortable with the Queens AS with us? 1 year, and 15 years? Are you freaking kidding me?

    Well, you can stay in that SBless dump, for all I care.

    Your probably right. Afterall, he needs an excuse to skip "dreaded" training camp.

    Of course he's an *******. The guy is a spoiled pampered little brat in the body of a 40 year old.

    Oh, so he injuried the ankle BEFORE the NFCC game! That's why he threw that int, and couldn't run for extra yardage!!!

    See!! It's all explained! What a warrior! What a hero! He's an inspiration to all of us!

    What a freaking bum. Glad we got rid of him and his piss poor excuses for failure. Rodgers didn't evoke ONCE the blalant facemask...

    Rodgers has class and dignity. Favre, well... You can only say "Stay Classy" in the usual sarcastic tone.

    He doesn't need an excuse to miss training camp. Childress has already told him he can come in whenever he wants to. And he said today that he's played with an ankle that bothered him as much as this one does. So this is all about keeping Brett in the news, and stringing his latest team along. Come late July, he'll tell the Yikes that he wants to play, but his incentive contract needs to be torn up for a new guaranteed contract for a modest raise to, say, 18 or 20 million. They'll cave into him since they have no other option at that late date.

    The ESPN injury analyst said something about the bones in his upper ankle spreading too far apart as a result of a bad high ankle sprain (the injury Favre sustained right before the NFC championship). In his statement from his website he calls the surgery minor and that he is able to work around his property fine, but some exercises cause pain.

    His statement is part true and part bs.

    I'm sure he has played through pain that is worse, I don't doubt that. That is the true part.

    The BS is that the procedure is minor and that he would be able to play without surgery.

    I'm assuming it is his tibia and fibula that are spreading. He damaged his syndesmotic ligament. Regardless it really affects mobility, the ability to support weight, and to change direction while supporting that weight.

    Sure, he could play without surgery but he would be less mobile than Dan Marino on his worst day, LoL. But more than likely he will have to have surgery, and that surgery isn't minor. They put in at least one but usually 2 or 3 screws and sometimes a plate to stabilize the joint. There is always the risk of the body rejecting the foreign material, and the risk of infection.

    I've been reading up on the Ankle Syndesmosis Repair surgery and it states that the patient can begin to resume athletic activities after 8-12 post-op but a full recovery can take up to 6 months. A full recovery sounds like it may cut into the beginning of the season doesn't it?? LoL

    Its Dr James Andrews. He is the best in the world at this stuff. He will get his 3rd ankle surgery and the press will just eat it up and talk about how tough he is for 3 months until they talk about how he chokes.

    When Favre said that his one year with the Vikes felt like ten and he had a sense of belonging....well what a slap in the face huh? I wonder if he forgot where he came from. I believe when he finally retires he will realize that he should of retired a Packer and stayed a hero instead of having unsuccessful seasons with other teams.

    We went through this song and dance last year with the shoulder. Eventually he'll have the surgery and he'll show up in Minny around the 2nd preseason game.
