I just want to thank Darren Sharper for at least claiming that he will attempt to rid the NFL of its melodramatic, egomaniacal, and (often) tear-doused, camera-loving diva. Sadly enough, I used to respect Favre, aside from my Bears-driven hate for him, but since this retirement carousel started a few seasons ago, the man has become more and more despicable in my eyes.
You can't change what Favre has done for the NFL or the things that he has accomplished, but I'd like to remind Viking fans just how much they once hated Favre, and that his return this year will not get them to the Superbowl.
The time has come for Favre to leave, and if that takes Sharper threatening him months before the kickoff of the NFL season, I'm fine with that. If that's not enough, then I look forward to Sharper making good on his offer and helping Favre retain some amount of respect in a career that is quickly losing it... by injuring him right out of it.
