FAVRE POST REAL OR NOT?

Okay, so there's a page on the LIVE web site of the Green Bay Packers that says quarterback Brett Favre will retire. And we're getting mixed signals from our sources as to whether it is legit.

A team source told us, emphatically, that the page on the team's official site is wrong. But some of our media sources have given some credence to the notion that Favre is hanging them up.

Then there's this page on the team's official site, which has a story about the Scouting Combine. It clearly has a link to the "Breaking News" section of the site. And clicking on the "Breaking News" link goes straight to the Favre retirement page.

If Favre isn't done, then the "Favre is done" page apparently was put in place by the organization so that they'll be ready if/when he quits. Still, whoever made the decision to allow that page to be on the live site is not only a "Cheesehead" but also a cheese brain.

If this is what has happened, it's not unprecedented. Two years ago, the Browns posted on their web site several live pages indicated that they'd signed certain free agents before the signing period even opened.

Re: Brett Favre set to Retire

Here is the latest from that exact link:
Quote:
FAVRE LINK IS NOW DISABLED

The "Favre will retire" link on the Packers' web site is now dead. But the question of why the team's official site had a live page proclaiming his retirement isn't.

Either someone hacked into the system or the staff was getting a dummy page ready for an eventual announcement. Whether such announcement was expected later today or at some unknown point in the future is unclear.

What is clear is that Favre Watch 2008 officially has past the point of ridiculousness, and it'll be interesting to see if the team's web site snafu becomes a factor in his decision-making pricess.

ESPN just said that no decision has been made, so until he holds a press conference, I will assume he will be back.

I'm actually glad this happened. I think it'll help show the recent group of new guys that PFT is not a very reliable source. Obviouslly it's easier to believe something when you see it as opposed to when someone tells you about it.

Re: Brett Favre set to Retire (rumor)

Re: Brett Favre set to Retire (rumor)

I was watching ESPN today, and they were saying someone in upper management was saying they expect him to return. I'd like to see him give it one more go.

Mark Murphy was quoted as saying that.

Re: Brett Favre set to Retire (rumor)

team president says he thinks favre is back, and i'd be surprised if he quits with a SB possible team waiting for him back in GB.

Re: Brett Favre set to Retire (rumor)

If he didn't retire when they sucked why would he retire now, coming off one of his best seasons in years with a young dangerous team to come back to? Unless there is some sort of health or family concern we don't know about I can't imagine this to be true.
