A Sports Blog on why ALL Teams Suck…Again!

This weeks mandatory Brett Fa*** post: Is the Fa*** circus coming to a close?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 6, 2008

This whole soap opera started with an itch Fa*** had that tough acting Tinactin couldn’t cure. Things went from Fa*** wanting to be released, to Fa*** wants to stay with the pack (as early as last Sunday) to Fa*** now where Fa*** will likely be traded.

Here’s a detailed timeline to help you figure it out:

  • Jan. 20: Packers lose NFC Championship Game to the Giants in OT
  • March 6: Fa*** conducts retirement news conference and cries again
  • April 3: Denies rumors of a comeback
  • April 4: Agent reportedly contacts teams to gauge trade interest
  • April 9: Says he might consider comeback if opportunity was presented
  • June 20: Fa*** tells Coach Mike McCarthy he may want to play
  • July 2: Fa*** says reports of return were “all rumor” in other words he lied
  • July 6: Sends text message to Packers GM Ted Thompson
  • July 8: Fa*** asks for release with understanding he won’t be starter
  • July 11: Packers receive letter from Fa*** formally requesting release
  • July 16: Packers file tampering charges with NFL against Vikings
  • July 19: Returns to Lambeau Field to attend Packers Hall of Fame ceremony
  • July 25: Fa*** tells Packers he plans to report to training camp
  • July 29: Faxes reinstatement request to NFL
  • July 30: Meets with Packers president Mark Murphy in Mississippi
  • July 31: Fa*** offered millions to not report to camp
  • Aug. 3: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reinstates Fa***
  • Aug. 4: Fa*** reports to training camp and is added to active roster after passing physical
  • Aug. 5: Left practice facility in the afternoon … did not practice with the team … met with Packers officials to discuss trade options … say “the best thing for this team is for us to part ways” … considers talking to the Buccaneers about a possible trade.

Fa*** has basically shown the world that one person can be bigger than the franchise. Even with the chance to win his starting job back, McCarthy claims Fa*** couldn’t seem to get past emotional wounds that were opened as tensions mounted in recent weeks.

This may sound cruel but IMHO Fa*** did it to himself.

“The football team’s moving forward,” McCarthy said. “The train has left the station, whatever analogy you want. He needs to jump on the train and let’s go. Or, if we can’t get past things that have happened, I have to keep the train moving.”

After reading that quote I can honestly see the coach breakout into his version of “Proud Mary.”

“They told him, ‘We’ll trade you, but not within the division,’ “Favre’s agent, James “Bus” Cook, told USA Today for Wednesday’s editions. “His first desire was to play here. Their first desire was for him not to play here.”

McCarthy is keeping quiet about the trade talks, but did say a quick resolution to the situation is important to the rest of his players.

“Absolutely,” McCarthy said. “The players, they want it resolved. Even talk to Brett about it — he feels bad about it. It’s time for them to talk about somebody else.”

“We’re at a stalemate,” Favre told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. “Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I’m here is because the commissioner reinstated me, so we have a lot of things to figure out. It’s simple and complicated, both at the same time.”

When this mess does end one thing is certain, Thompson and McCarthy, will be known as, the guys who ran Fa*** out of Town.

He’s going to retire, he’s not going to retire, he wants to take the buy out, he doesn’t want to take the buyout, he wants to play for the Packers, he doesn’t want to play for the Packers, he doesn’t want to play for Tampa, he wants to play for Tampa….does this guy even know what he wants. I’m so sick of this being on every sports channel 24/7 that I could puke. The guy is acting like a spoiled kid. “I’m going to take my ball and go home”. I’ll admit he is a great player but I honestly do not blame the Packers for being tired of his antics. As football fans I believe we all are.
