Brett Favre won’t be unretiring until next season.

And somewhere, Peter King is weeping.

Are bloggers’ anonymous sources better than traditional writers’ anonymous sources?

packergeeks says that Favre will be a Viking by the end of the week.

Remember that story that said Favre was having surgery? Yeah, about that…

In the latest edition of “Did Brett Favre sneeze today?,” there is a new conflicting report out saying that Favre wants to heal his arm without surgery.

From ESPN’s Ed Werder:  “Favre, however, remains focused on nonsurgical options, including cortisone injections and natural movements like light throwing and bicep curls that might cause the tendon to release naturally, the source told ESPN.  If the tendon releases and the pain subsides, Favre is virtually certain to play again.  If he has surgery and his arm strength diminishes or the pain remains, he will remain retired.”

So basically, Favre’s return is still inevitable.  Now there’s just two different anonymous sources telling us two different stories about HOW he will return.

Favre to have surgery on shoulder; in other words, Favre to become a Viking

Brett Favre will be having surgery on his right shoulder.  The most logical conclusion to reach from this is that Favre is intent on returning.  Circle your calendars:  Monday, October 5 and Sunday, November 1st.  It’s gonna be a circus.

I sure love anonymous sources.

Favre is apparently staying retired. That’s what an anonymous source told Yahoo! Sports.  It’s a good thing anonymous sources are 100% reliable.

Thankfully, the now years-long Brett Favre saga is finally over*

 

*It’s probably not over.

Did Favre fake his injury that convinced him to retire?

I’ll just send you over to CheeseheadTV for the story.

Brett Favre gave Rodgers the cold shoulder? (w/ audio from interview)

Apparently, Brett Favre never once even spoke to Aaron Rodgers during the whole un-retirement fiasco.  In an interview on The Michael Irvin Show, Rodgers said that Favre has not spoken to him since the NFC Championship Game.  For over a year now, Favre has apparently ignored Rodgers’ phone calls and attempts to get in contact with the former Packers star.  Stay classy, Brett.
