    Vikings Tampered with Favre?

    From Fox Sports:

    Sources: Packers say Vikings tampered with Favre
    by Jay Glazer

    Updated: July 16, 2008, 6:14 PM EST

    As the days roll by, the Brett Favre saga seems to get stranger and stranger. Now the soap opera has shifted to a new level.
    In the latest twist, the Packers have filed tampering charges with the league office against the Minnesota Vikings for alleged communication with Favre, still technically a member of Green Bay, FOXSports.com has learned. The league, according to a source, is currently in information-gathering mode, speaking to members of both teams.
    The Vikings were informed late last week that the allegation is that Favre has had inappropriate dialogue with Minnesota offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, a close Favre friend and former assistant coach with the Packers. Favre has sought his release from Green Bay and several rumors have swirled that Minnesota is his targeted landing place, largely due to his relationship with Bevell.
    League sources say the Vikings vehemently denied any wrongdoing and are awaiting the league's next step in the process. The Packers, meanwhile, have supplied the league with their version of wrongdoing.
    Should the league find the Vikings guilty of tampering, they could lose draft picks and/or face fines.
    The entire affair escalated to an ugly level this week when Favre conducted an interview with FOX News' Greta Van Susteren in which the living legend took the Packers to task for refusing to release him. In fact, a leaked version of the transcript had Favre blasting GM Ted Thompson, but in another odd twist, that portion of the interview has not been shown on the air.
    The Packers have refused to grant the league's all-time leading passer's request for a release due in part to their fear that he would sign with the Vikings. Despite the wave of speculation, Vikings head coach Brad Childress insists that Tarvaris Jackson is his guy.
    The entire affair is unfortunate, as Favre is more synonymous with Green Bay than any other player is with a city. At the same time, however, fans are now forced to make judgments for or against their hometown hero/team.
    Calls by FOXSports.com to head coaches of both teams have not yet been returned.

    The Packers are really screwing this up. This is like a Donald Trump divorce.

    Hey, no problem....put him in purple. He's not the long term solution but he's a viable quick fix and could see at least 2 or 3 years with the Vikes.

    I say sign 'em.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Isn't there some sort of code that says you can't be a Twins fans and a Packer fan also? :) I guess I like the bulls so I can't talk.

    Nah. I rewrite the book.

    My dad and 5 of his brothers grew up in Wisconsin... they are only football fans. It was gunpoint from birth for the Pack. Thank god I wasn't brought up to cheer for a football team that wears purple.

    Needless to say, I grew up in MN and was left to choose my other teams. And who doesn't like the small ball that the Twinkies play?

    Re: Vikings Tampered with Favre?

    i dont belive it either. even if the vikes tried to sign him, theres no way he would play there. farve is a god in green bay and if he became a vike, he would become the most hated man in green bay over night. viking and green bay fan are no different than ISU and hawk fans, they both cant stand each other


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Except that the Vikings love to pickup ex Packers (Sharper and Longwell to name a couple). A welcome change to some players that are sick of the outdoors. And they call themselves football players.

    Re: Vikings Tampered with Favre?

    I found it ironic that when I went to go watch the video on fox sports.com, they played that T-Mobile ad where they show Favre in his retirement speech saying "It's time for me to say hello"

    "I've always been a Packer, always will be a Packer," ... "Will I play somewhere else? Remains to be seen"

    Umm..what did you just say, Mr Favre?
