Rumors

My favorite quote of the day, from ESPN's latest article: "ESPN NFL reporter Ed Werder says the rumors will not stop surrounding Brett Favre just because he announced he was staying retired."  The irony here?  Werder's one of the primary culprits for fueling the rumors.  So, when he tells us they won't stop, we should believe him.  

Please don't take this as me loving on Favre.  I don't.  I didn't even want him on our team.  But, seriously.  Is he a prima donna?  A media hog?  An big ego as he was just called this morning by a separate ESPN reporter?  Or have all these impressions just been fed to us by a swarm of buzz flies that make money off the attention we give them.  These fools inspire all sorts of ridiculous, half-baked "news" reports, churning up useless story after useless story, then deflect responsibility to someone who's basically been silent since this damn thing started.  My guess.  Favre probably did want to come back.  And, his body probably hurt real bad the more he worked it out.  And this probably scared him and gave him real pause.  Hence, the drawn out, uncertain nature of the whole thing, which only came to light as time progressed.

I've hated the coverage this thing got.  I found it obnoxious and tedious.  But, I think that it would be hard for anybody to produce any real evidence from the last several months for Brett being a media hog, an ego maniac, a prima donna.  I think this attention has been done to him and the pricks writing the stories should accept responsibility for their own desperate wish to have their name attached to the latest breaking story, however unreliable that story is. The press, not Brett Favre, is the real media hog.  They make it.  They need it.  They give it to use.  And we reproduce it by recycling the very terms they've given us to think with.
