Lord have mercy, he's faking it

It has come to this for Brett Favre. It has come to him inventing injuries to muster sympathy. Unbelievable.

Come on now. You don't believe for a second that he really has a cracked rib -- do you?

Favre's agent doesn't know about it. The Vikings apparently don't know about it. Nobody knows about it but Brett Favre. The only player who tries to pull off this phantom-injury crap is Ben Roethlisberger, and nobody ever believes him.

Look at it like this. My man Philip Rivers plays a playoff game with a torn ACL and doesn't let the media know. Favre can't even play an exhibition game without floating the idea that maybe, possibly, doubtfully, he has a cracked rib.

He's lying. I'm saying it right now.

He.

Is.

Lying.

Thanks PITT Fan but it's really no contest when Doyel produces this kind of drivel.

Favre is a top five quaterback in the NFL right now.  He still plays the game at a higher level than 95% of quaterbacks in the league.  He is not washed up.  His his legend and legacy IS enormous and unassailable.  He is the most durable player to EVER play in the league.  He is one of the greatest quarterbacks of ALL TIME.  Little boy exileration???  No "little boys" play in the freaking NFL.  Cannot give up the adulation and attention???  He wants to play a game he loves and has played all his life.  He'll have all the attention and adulation where ever he goes for the rest of his life.  He is an incredible talent, and we are all lucky that he came back.  I watched him play last night and there was NOTHING to indicate that his time has "come and gone".  He is still a force in this league, and he will make a difference this year for the Vikes.

Watch yourself Doyle!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and free speech...the whole deal.  But what you're saying Doyle, is that Brett Favre is a liar.  I'm not a journalist and I never will be, but calling someone a liar without having the evidence to back it up (you think Favre tells his agent EVERYTHING...doubtful) borders on slander and libel.  Listen, I'm as tired of the media circus surrounding Favre and the indecision or possible manipulation that Favre seems to engage in year after year, but I don't know the man personally and I certainly wouldn't call someone a liar without hard evidence.  I hope he doesn't have a cracked rib, but on the off chance that he does, I hope you eat your words and offer an apology.  If hard evidence surfaces that he was indeed lying, I'll eat my words and tell you you were right, but in the meantime, chill out dude!

Your criticizing the most durable player to EVER play the game about fabricating an injury?  I think the guy knows his body.  If he says he's hurt, he probably is.  Why does he need to try to "muster sympathy"?  Who does he want sympathy from?  He's tougher than you ever dreamed of being and if I were you, I would shut my pie-hole.

Doyle, really???? I guess you can have your opinion if you want even if it is wrong and stupid. Here is the problem I have, not only with you but with a lot of sportswriters these days. Somehow and somewhere along the line sportswriters decided that they need to be huge A holes to get people to read their articles. Are you really incapable of writing something based on what happened in a game?? Put it this way Doyle, if you are not willing to walk up to a guy in a bar and say the crap you type on your little keyboard then you probably shouldn't be saying it.... how the hell do you know if he has a broken rib??? So you get paid to put together an "article" 7 lines long calling someone a liar???? That is freaking amazing to me.

Doyle you are such an idiot. Do you get down on your knees every day to give thanks that you have a job? or is it for something else? What a fool. It's hard to tell when Rivers is hurt or not he sucks all of the time. Is there a bigger loser in the league? Has he won anything? no i didn't think so. They are always blaming it on his running back, now that's a good excuse huh. What's yours Doyle?

The problem isn't that Brett Favre is a drama queen.  The problem is the media.  Every time Brett says anything the media blows it up so that people like you and I talk about it.  It is simple really.  It is called ratings.  The media loves to get reactions out of the fans, be it negative or positive.
