Favre commits Treason on former team
 
This is why I never liked this guy.

He could have hand them the whole play book still would have not helped them.

If its not his team anymore how can he commit treason? I dont have a problem with players informing on their former teams (it happens all the time) but I dont like the part where Favre called Det on his own. If Det had called and asked about GB's offense I wouldnt have a problem with Favre talking but for Favre to call out of the blue bothers me.

EXACTLY!! He called them on his own. He's a crybaby who didn't get his way, so he resorts to classless behavior.

Favre is friends with Millen and was supposedly calling the Lions to speak with him about a hunting trip. Who knows what the extent of the call was exactly, but I would think this is pretty common. What's the difference between this or signing a division rival in camp only to pick his brain?

It may be classless and poor sportsmanship but it isnt treason.

[QUOTE]The idea that a player might be willing to spill secrets about his old team certainly isn’t new in NFL circles. It’s almost expected that when a player leaves one team and joins another, he will share inside information with his new coaches—especially if they were preparing to play against his old team.

Favre is to hung up on being a gunslinger, his feelings where hurt when GB didn't want him cry baby

I agree that this happens all the time when guys change teams but Det isnt Favre's new team and for him to call them is what doesnt sit quite right with me. I dont have a big problem with him doing it but IMO it seems petty to me.

Also, I know he is friends with Millen but I though Millen was gone before this call was supposed to have happened.

Millen was fired on 9/24, 10 days after the Packers and Lions played in week 2.

OH MY GOD! Call Godell and start the investigation! I wonder if Bellichicken was involved?
IT MEANS NOTHING!
All players do it when they leave one team and go to another. Especially QB's.
There have been Qb's that were signed just to get info from them then they were cut later.
Untwist your panty's, pull them out and breathe.

What do you mean this is why you never liked the guy? How can this be the reason you never liked him? Are you aware of some pattern of sabotage that Favre has exhibited over the years?

Thank you Defensewins! The idea of a telephone conversation involving some football talk between two players or "friends" is hardly news. And to suggest Brett is anything but a class act is ridiculous ignorance.
Garbage rumor meant to stir up bullshit IMO!

Cause he's a crybaby!! He kept retiring for like 4 consecutive years and say I'll make up my mind during the offseason and let you know before the season begins. Finally GB said enough is enough, he's just an attention getter who wants to be in the headlines all the time.
