    Favre Tells Dilfer He Won’t Return

    [FONT=&quot]From Judd Zulgad of The Minneapolis Star Tribune:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot][​IMG][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]A few hours ago, we wrote that retired quarterback Brett Favre hasn’t been contact with the usual suspects when it comes to communicating his desire to play, or not play, since he was granted his release last week from the reserve/retired list by the New York Jets.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Well, now there has been contact with Favre. Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer, who now works for ESPN, sent a text to Favre today asking if there was any chance he would consider playing in 2009. Favre responded in a return text with the word “NO.” And he put it in caps.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Hmmm me thinks he protests too much !

    Nice, Favre. Now you're being the man you allways were wearing Green and Gold. Let's hope him or TT reach out and try to make amends, so we can see his jersey retired as soon as possible, because that's what every packer fan really want.

    I agree, last year before this whole thing started he said he was done. I will believe he is actually retired after the super bowl next year and he doesn't play.

    That's a shame. Reaylly...he could have retired like one of the greatest QB of all times...but noooooo! He prefers to be remember as a joke...or a turncoat if he really signs with the viqueens.

    I think you guys take this too far, yeah Brett does this a lot but I think he's done. He's still the best quarterback Green Bay ever had and I dont hate him any less for wanting to play in 2008. There was no room for him in Green Bay though, it's A-Rods turn. He say's he done and (this time) I believe him.

    I don't hate Favre. He's one of the greatest Packers of all time.
    But I WILL hate him if he wears purple and yellow (that's not gold) this season.

    Well yeah there will be a bit of a bitter taste if he plays for the Vikings, but does that honestly take away all his good years in Green Bay.

    Can you really imagine Favre entering Lambeau dressing purple and yellow?

    Some might say it's profissionalism. I don't buy it. He's just seeking revenge and a way to "stick it" to TT. He puts himself above the team and everyone else. Sad.

    Do you honestly think Brett is that Cynical to join a team to get back at TT. Maybe it's just me, but I think if (a BIG if) he went to Minnesota, it would be to play football (and a shot at the super bowl).

    Yes. He has said so himself in an SI interview.

    "Favre can't stand Green Bay"

    "Favre looking to stick it Green Bay?
    The retired-for-now Brett Favre could be itching to get back onto the field. "Favre can't stand Green Bay," a source said. "He wants to play Green Bay and say, 'I told you so.' His bitterness is creating this. I think he's calling Minnesota. I think Minnesota is talking about this as we speak. You haven't heard the end of Favre. No way. He is bionic. As long as somebody will let him in, he will play." (New York Daily News)

    What he fails to realize (or maybe he does) is that by "sticking" it to ANYONE who is a part of the Packers family, he "sticks it" to ALL of us. And he has explicitly said that's what he wants to do, so F him.

    I hope he does go to the Vikings. He proved last year that he's washed up. I've NEVER seen a QB implode like he did in the second half of last season.

    I thought he would not return this year but things like this keeps happening. I think the Brett Favre we used to love is dead, and all that's left is a douche...

    Thinking about Favre in a Viking uniforms just makes me wanna throw up.. Hell even the photoshopped pictures of Favre in vikings unis make me throw up.

    Brett if you go through with this, Im gonna officially be a Favre hater. I don't care what you did the previous 16 seasons. Wanting to stick it to your old team is childish to the max. Can't wait till you step on lambeau in purple
    and here the booooooos.

    Did you just compare a safety and a kicker to a QB that we all loved for 16 seasons? wow.
