    :facepalm:

    Brett Favre has announced he will return to the NFL for one more season if the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles return to the College World Series for a second year in a row.

    The offseason drama begins again.

    Deja vu, anyone?

    Haha, gotta love Favre. While some people may get tired of his antics, I find them entertaining. The guy loves the game, no one can argue that. I'm hoping he does come back for another year, regardless of the outcome of this bet.

    I am sick of his crap now. I have always thought it is his right to play for as long as he wants and even have supported him ever since his dispute with Green Bay. This is nuts. I only supported him because I had never thought he'd continue to drag this saga out for this long. How long is he going to play his little game? Now he is wagering his comeback on the stupid college worldseries. Is he for real? No, it is unreal. Either play or don't. I do not buy the fact that your career depends on NCAA baseball. It should not be like that because you are you and they are them. Oh, please give me a break. Each time you take a hit you are doing your body more harm so you better think twice. This just becomes more insane every year IMO.

    It is really becoming a complete circus with him now every year.

    People may hate him now, but I'm sure they'll miss him once he is finally gone ;).

    Yes they will.....

    I read an interesting article yesterday where the ownership of the Vikes has given the state a deadline to help them with a new stadium. 2011 they want something settled. Apparently this has been dragging for some years...

    Regardless he will back next season. It sounds like a pep talk to pump up the Golden team in my eyes.

    He has had a remarkable career but everyone's career ends at some point and time. He proved last season he can still play no doubt but I still think his time is drawing near due to his age. He is the age where his career may take a turn for the worst at any time. I just wish he'd tell all of us yes or no and move. Also, the media is blowing this story way out of proportion as they do 90 percent of the time. If he does come back I would probably watch him on T.V. though.

    It's different now; Green Bay wanted to see what they had in Aaron Rodgers, but Minnesota needs him. He'll be back... the Vikings will give him all the time he wants until TC.

    I agree with you completely. I honestly believe barring any serious injury, he can play for another 2 years at a fairly high level. The only thing that annoys me about Favre during the off-season is the media that whores itself with all that "Favre Watch" BS.

    I agree. If he wins the big game in the next year two I think he'll walk for sure.

    George Blanda, who played most of his career with the Houston Oilers. He was not only the oldest QB to ever play in the NFL, he was the oldest player to ever play in the NFL. Blanda played until he was 48 years old.

    Actually, he played longer with the Bears & Raiders longer than he did with the Oilers.

    Chicago Bears (1949)
    Baltimore Colts (1950)
    Chicago Bears (1950-1958)
    Houston Oilers (1960-1966)
    Oakland Raiders (1967-1975)

    Not trying to correct you so much as inform. I always felt he was an Oiler forever, and the Raiders just got him in the twilight of his career.

    I remember watching him play qb for the Oilers and how pissed the town was that Bud let him get away.

    Buck Fud!
