This man holds all the cards, doesn’t he? While refusing a two-year offer from the Jets, Brett Favre wants you to know he’s not done talking about the Packers’ mistakes. Chief among this week’s criticisms? Their hiring of consultant Ari Fleischer, former spokesman for the Bush White House.
The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS gets Brett’s rebuttal:
“What does that tell you? I mean, come on - damage control,” Favre said.
Well duh. Then again, Favre’s sitdown interview to bash the Packers looks like damage control as well. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander sometimes, Favre should know as much. But Fleischer wasn’t his only complaint:
At the end of a 75-minute lunch, [Ted] Thompson told Favre they wanted to do something “special” for him and would dismantle his locker at Lambeau Field and have it sent to him in boxes.
Favre’s jaw dropped.
“I’m thinking, ‘Way to get my ass out the door,’ ” Favre said. “I mean, that’s the craziest thing I ever heard of.”
The royal we think Favre outside of a Packers uniform is the craziest thing Brett Favre’s ever thought of. So there.
