There’s certainly a sense of drama surrounding everything Brett Favre does, even if we think we know that he’s almost certain to return for a 20th NFL season in 2010.
Favre said he isn’t in a position to guarantee that return, and that he hasn’t been given a deadline by Vikings coach Brad Childress, either. So, really, as Favre works out with the high school players in Mississippi, not much has changed. But we expect that will change when Favre says he’s returning.
You get the idea.
But it was brought to light in a recent article in Men’s Journal that his agent, Bus Cook, referred to Favre as a “drama queen” over his indecision to return this season. Presumably, only Favre, Cook and Stephen Rodrick, the author of the piece, were in the room that day, and Favre is taking exception to the way the comments were portrayed.
“The guy spent a day with us,” Favre explained to Mississippi television station WDAM. ”I filmed the Wrangler commercial that day. We joked around, really, it was a joking around day. You know Bus [Cook]. You know me. We opened up our family lives to him. I guess the lesson to be learned in all that is … I have to even say it. It’s just that you can’t trust anybody. Because, that’s not the way I was raised.”
