So the big NFL news this week is the ankle of Indianapolis Colts Dwight Freeney. Never one to be upstaged Brett Favre’s agent came out with pictures of his client’s ankle following the NFC Championship game. The lengths Favre’s camp will go to insure he is the center of attention really makes me sick. This guy has spent the last two years making a mockery of his NFL career, and generally being a cry baby wasting everyone’s time with yet another retirement announcement.
This latest move is the lowest of the mall. First of all the Favre camp is trying to use these pictures to explain away the interception that cost the Minnesota Vikings a trip to the Super Bowl. Let us deal with that first, the fact here is Favre is a gunslinger and in any given day, Favre is going to do something really stupid. It is too bad for the Vikings that he was able to control that urge all the way until the final drive in the NFC title game.
Now let us deal with the injury itself, if you believe that every other NFL player would not have taken the field with this kind of injury in a regular season game, much less the NFC title game, you are kidding yourself. This is the NFL, and players are expected to play hurt. Especially in game of such importance to the team.
Favre’s need to be the center of attention is getting really old. His camp has no business releasing these photos during Super Bowl week. It is a classless move, from a classless guy who needs to hang up and move onto the next part of his life. Expecting the national media and NFL football fans to continually feed his enormous ego is a load of crap, and it needs to end now.
