Not Enough Brett Favre Articles

            I am really upset with the national media and its lack of Favre coverage.  One article a day is not nearly enough.  This is a story that everyone loves and needs to hear. 

     I feel that sportswriters are being lazy so I thought I should give them some ideas to follow.

     First, I want daily reports from Brett's doctor, his agent, and Minnesota management.  So much can happen between one article and the next and I believe the public are missing out.  Since I am sure that Brett and his agent are in daily contact with the Vikings we should be privy to these encounters as well.

     Secondly, I want TV coverage of every rehab session and practice session at the high school.  There should be an ESPN film crew permanently on location in Hattiesburg.  If he plays catch with his kid in the back yard I want a camera man in a tree giving us the overhead angle.  Another guy can be in the bushes for the on field angle.

     I want one candid interview with Favre a day.  Chris Mortensen gave this to us last year and every fan appreciated it.  I know Brett will give the media the access, so what are they waiting for?

     I want a radar detector documenting the speed of his fastballs and changeups.  That way we can gauge his level of recovery on a daily basis.

     I want HBO to make this season's Hard Knocks show a reality show involving Brett and his family.  Seriously, who produces this show?  Does HBO really think Chad Ochocinco and the Bengals are a better soap opera than this?

     I think every newspaper in the country would be wise to devote a special section of their paper to the events surrounding Favre and the Vikings.  They do this to preview the upcoming season and for the Superbowl, why is this any less important?

     Topping the list, and I can’t stress enough the importance of this, I want visual evidence of every bowel movement he makes.  I want a bulletin running under the screen on ESPN if it has corn in it.  They should bring back Keith Olberman for this job exclusively.

     I want to turn on Sportscenter tomorrow and hear him say “Last night Brett Favre produced two solid pieces of fecal matter.  They were brown with a hint of green.  I am happy to announce there were no floaters.  I think I can speak for all of us at ESPN when I say that I am relieved that the taco diarrhea he experience yesterday is firmly behind him.”

     I ask all sportswriters and sports TV channels everywhere to step up their game.  This topic is the most important cultural event since the Kennedy assassination.  We must treat it accordingly.

Not Enough Brett Favre Articles

I like your comments, but I don't think the level of play has declined.  I think the game has gotten so much more sophisticated and the number of teams has expanded.  This leaves a shortage of quality quarterbacks.

By the way, does anyone know how these blogs are scored?  This same article got rave reviews on bleacherreport.com but a -291 on here.  I don't feel that this was obscene in any way.  Maybe Favre is controlling sportsline and he is trying to shut me up.

Not Enough Brett Favre Articles

This is a sensational insight into the minds of fans like me. I have been clammoring for more Favre coverage for a while and there is no network willing to step up to the plate to satisfy hunger. I mean, I have a fever and the only cure is more Favre coverage.

This is the state of the NFL in my opinion. The over saturation of media whoring of the cash cow leads us to what amounts to a media network dedicated to the over inflated ego of a washed up 40 something quaterback. The fact that ANY NFL team is in need of his services should tell you all you need to know about the quaterback play in the league as a whole. I'm not a Favre hater, he is a great quaterback who has his ticket stamped for the Hall Of Fame. He has put up outstanding numbers, won titles, and been a gritty competitor throughout his entire career. But the level of play in the NFL has been in decline for a number of years in my opinion, and this is just more proof. Meanwhile the media and sports community in general continue to line up to pay exorbadant sums just to have the "privelage" of watching shameless self promotion coupled with the promotion of anything else under the sun who thinks 20-40 year old men might buy. I personally refer to it as the commercial network, which ever chanel a game might be on. And that sumation is not far wrong.

The argument seems to be; Should Favre come back or shouldn't he? The real question that needs to be asked is; If Favre is still a starting quaterback in this league, how bad is this league?
