    I found this link on www.profootballtalk.com.

    http://packers.com/breaking_news/

    Is there anything to this? I find it weird that it's on their site but not on the front page.

    :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Favre to quit?

    I tried to search for the page on the official website and nothing came up, so I think it's a fake.

    sorry not a fake
    its the official packer web site

    that link was used last 2 years when brett announced he was returning.

    It might be a test???

    Maybe it's a test, but the search I did didn't reveal this page. I wonder if someone hacked the site like the guy on pft suggested.

    Nope not fake.. it is a page build in preparation of breaking new.. they locked it down now behind the firewall.. but if they are building it then maybe the news is leaking inside the Corporate headquarters..

    Lets hope it is a just in case.. btw.. it pinged the same IP as the hosted Packer site.. so it is their's..

    Favre to quit?

    Didn't want to get anyone panicky, but it was a shock to me the first time I read it...and since it was on packers.com, I thought it was probably legit. Found it funny that it wasn't posted anywhere else though.

    If it was a prank, it had me going for awhile.

    It does look like a page that was just prepared, as below it said "Ted Thompson HELD a press conference this afternoon" to answer questions.

    Favre to quit?

    my friend andy used to work for the green bay press-gazette, and they used to make a whole package of stuff beforehand to prepare for the decision. this seems to be the same thing, maybe they're just testing the package, and someone screwed it up.

    Nothing to see here, folks.
    Move on.

    Favre's not retiring before the '08 season.

    Re: Favre to quit?

    I recently got breast implants.

    Hey, you wanted news.

    Getting serious, I wonder if anyone will say this was an act of TT to try and send Favre the message that he (Ted) doesn't want him to return.

    Conspiracy theorists will have their day with this incident if Favre retires.
