    10K sounds a bit lenient for something that could've ended in a devastating injury. Meh

    Of course, this fine is chump change for Brett Favre. But after that block, some sort of punitive measures were certainly needed.

    I really had hoped that he would go all Trent Green on that play...

    Seems like a flagrant illegal action that could end a player's career + one that hurts like hell, should be worth at least a one game suspension.

    If it was a lesser known player there probably would of been some kind of suspension.

    But it's Brett Favre and he can pretty much do whatever he wants. Im expecting a ESPN Favre network soon.

    Watch Favre use the bathroom, watch favre clip his toenails, watch favre ride his tractor, now with Jaws and Gruden on commentary! "No one shifts gears like Brett Jaws."

    I'm waiting for him to pull a Jerry Glanville and start racing in Nascar.

    Thatd be awesome. Brett would take forever to make a decision. "Turn left or turn right i just cant decide."

    "Brett you can only turn left you moron!."

    Good, the whole thing really pisses me off...I don't care who you are (or think you are), it was BLATANT and repercussions should be coming.

    Brett, you continue to disappoint me....:thumbdown

    Farve knows better he should have engaged Wilson instead of coming on strong from the side like he did. 10,000 is pocket change for a guy like Brett Farve. I'm a Farve fan I don't know if he ment any harm but the NFL rules are NFL rules and there should should not be a doubld standard but there is. If it was any other player the fine would have been bigger and should have been in this case for Brett Farve JMO.

    This man is making 12 mil this year? What the hell is 10 grand? He SHOULD be suspended.

    NFL = National Favre League.

    Weak sauce!

    I'm not wishing bad on the guy, but after seeing his "awe shucks" press conference after the game, I no longer hope to see him end his career with success. That was a weak little attempt to CYA on his part, and instead of apologizing, he said something about his age and all that jazz. Whateva', Favre! Go Sage!

    I have never been a fan of Favre and just ambivalent about him personally. I have never understood why people put him on such a high pedestal.

    Since this continuing to retire and comeback saga, and now this crackback block, I have come to the conclusion that Favre is not the person people think he is personally.

    Admire the man for his football accomplishments, but leave the rest of the stuff alone.

    Farve is getting on my nerves with all his BS publicity. I'm glad to see this, even if it is chump change to him.

    So, he thinks he's young enough to start in the NFL, and supposedly lead the Vikings to the playoffs, but for that one dirty play...

    "*sniff sniff* I'll be 40 in October"


    jeeez, gimme a break... primadonna.

    Seriously? Seriously?

    *sniffle sniffle* I'm almost 40 and was weed eating 13 days ago, and not thinking about blocking.

    Real weak. Man up, and apologize for a play that might not have been intentionally dirty but, was still illegal and could've resulted in hurting someone badly.
