    Difference between Favre and MJ?!?!

    I don't remember people going nuts like this when MJ came out of retirement twice! I would like to here people's thoughts on this.

    Why the heavy scrutiny for BF and such love for MJ?

    Re: Difference between Favre and MJ?!?!

    A lot of people thought MJ was silly for coming out of retirement that second time. Personally, I wished he would have gone to a contender and played as needed - just loved watching him play and on a team that was already good, he could have kept playing for years.

    Re: Difference between Favre and MJ?!?!

    There is no difference. At least Favre still has some game left. Favre coming back now is a top 15 QB easy. MJ coming back for the freaking wizards (lol..) was not even a top 30 player in the NBA.

    Re: Difference between Favre and MJ?!?!

    A few differences: MJ didn't "retire" and "un-retire" in back to back years. MJ also did not make it into a circus. And finally, MJ didn't "retire" simply to get out of preseason practice. He worked his *** off to be the best he could be.

    Re: Difference between Favre and MJ?!?!

    Did MJ do the soap opera that Favre has been doing? Nope. That's the main difference IMO.

    He didn't make it a circus?!?! He went to play freaking baseball!! He sure as hell made it a circus

    I am sure Favre doesn't work his *** off as well. He just sets NFL records by sitting on his *** all day

    As a Cowboys fan and fan of all Cowboys past and present, I'm glad Favre is doing this. Favre is killing his current image. Long term people will forget about all this garbage. Same as we forgot about Mike.

    Good point. That is my feeling on Favre. Love watching the guy play. Thing it is stupid for him to go back and forth but love that he came back to play for a contender. Watching him in the playoffs will be a lot of fun

    MJ didn't change his mind every other week like Favre has for the past 3 months.

    Also, practicing with high school kids does not make you the best player possible, nor does it help your team.

    Remember it is different now than it was 15 years ago. Media is 10X worse. Internet, phones, tv. Rumors spread like fire where as they didn't 15 years ago. Who knows MJ could have changed his mind as well

    What was Favre suppose to do? Practice with players on his imaginary team?

    I still think it's completely different. MJ left to try to compete at a different sport. Which I think he made it a circus by trying to do but he didn't waver on his decision all the time. We've spent an entire summer listening about what Favre will or won't do. We never did that with MJ. He could've just said, I want to play or don't want to play and have it be the end of it. It was a soap opera and only has confirmed my suspicion that Favre is one of the biggest Prima Donas out there. A tough and gritty Prima Dona, but one nonetheless.

    Or he could've ponied up and went to training camp.

    Did you not watch his interview? He retired and than Childress called him up on Monday. He didn't retire and than unretire just to skip out on mini-camp. Anyone who believes that is looking for a good conspiracy theory

    Also listen to the story he told about his 10 year old daughter and tell me if you think he is telling the truth

    As for MJ. It was on the news forever that he MAY come back. It's just that it wasn't as heavily covered b/c the media wasn't as bad back than. AND b/c he was Michael Jordan and thus everybody wanted him to come back. But make no mistake about it, MJ and Favre are the same. They still believe they are the best and can win titles. That is what makes them two of the greatest of all time. What Favre did was no different than what MJ did

    Re: Difference between Favre and MJ?!?!

    How about Roger Clemens. What is the difference between Jordan, Favre, and Clemens?
