I don't think the point is "missing camp affects Brett's conditioning". It's if players not called Brett Favre did this year in, year out they would be lambasted.

The comparison to Owens is stupid because, like you say, he not infrequently called out teammates and was generally god-awful for morale in the locker room. Comparing him to Chad doesn't seem invalid though. Brett isn't being indecisive, he's media-whoring and he's been doing it for three seasons now. On this occasion someone else may have kicked off the furore, but he's hardly been averse to demanding the spotlight as he 'agonsises' over his decision, even though everyone knows exactly what that decision will be. He also acted like a brat on the way out of Green Bay IMO, but that's a whole other matter.

For the record I like Brett for the most part, but the circus which surrounds him every damn summer (and which he happily helps cultivate) makes me want to throw my damn TV out the window. I don't care how good he is or how many MVPs he's won. That might make his team put up with his shit more, but it doesn't make him any less annoying to ME. A distraction's a distraction and a selfish assed media-whore's a selfish assed media-whore. Brett Favre has been both, and though Stephen A Smith is a tool, I applaud him for saying so.

    I have several problems with this. First, Screamin A is worthless.


Yeah, I was going to ask how Brett Favre skipping minicamp is any different from Smith's BFF Allen Iverson telling people to chill out about practice.

This has nothing to do with Favre skipping minicamp and everything to do with Favre being a dishonest attention whore. If Favre held a press conference to say, "I want to play but I don't give a shit about practice" the way Iverson did, we'd be having a different discussion.

Also, Iverson didn't have that press conference every single year.

I hope Brett's ankle is okay and he's able to go one more time around. He was an exciting player to watch last year and took a lot of physical abuse in the NFC Championship.

Chances are he won't have the same pep, but he's a lot of fun when he's on.

Well, the latest rumors have Sam Adams talking to the Bengals this Monday, the only team that still has the cap-room to give him the kind of deal he's hoping for. This would be another huge addition to that top 10 Bengals defense.
