Favre is back

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/B...back-Minnesota



Quote:
The on-again, off-again drama that is Brett Favre now appears to be on again. A trio of Vikings teammates including Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive end Jared Allen and kicker Ryan Longwell flew to Hattiesburg, Miss. to push Favre to give them one more season.

Favre informed the trio Tuesday that he is, in fact, back in and will rejoin the Vikings, FOXsports.com has learned.

he's old, maybe he "forgot" about practice and the kids had to come remind him

There is no doubt the guy has accomplished quite a bit in his career, but I have a feeling he's going catch an unlimited amount of hell from all angles over this.

I can't wait for the commentators to nut all over his every play on the field again this year as well as continue to talk about story, even when he is not on the field, of determination and guts to come back and play this year, his 20th season.

Favre coming back makes the Vikings the second best team in the NFC. If Adrian Peterson dosent have his fumbling problems like he had in the NFC Championship game then the Vikings would've probably beaten the Saints. Speaking of which, the Vikings play the Saints in week 1 of this year.

I think we'll either see a too old farve or a man he's still got it farve. Besides his on again off again BS he's still good. Wonder how good they'll do this year.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

Vikings Will Pay Brett Favre Up to $20 Million

8/18/2010 10:07 AM ET By Michael David Smith

Brett Favre is coming back for a 20th NFL season, and the Minnesota Vikings are willing to pay him up to $20 million to do it.

Although Favre's contract called for him to make $13 million this season, Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that in order to coax Favre back from Mississippi, the Vikings are giving him a big raise, of another $3.5 million in base salary, plus $3.5 million in incentives. If he reaches all the incentives -- which are apparently tied to the Vikings' playoff performance -- he'll make a cool $20 million over the next five months.


The raise represents a significant investment on the part of Vikings owner Zygi Wilf, who agreed to a very generous contract with Favre just a year ago and is now significantly increasing the value of that contract.

But while $20 million for five months of work sounds insane to you and me, the potential return on the investment for Wilf is enormous: The Vikings are trying to convince the local taxpayers to pony up hundreds of millions of dollars to build the team a new stadium, and if having Favre around for another year engenders the kind of goodwill that gets that deal done, then Favre is a bargain -- even at $20 million.

That explains alot. Taxpayers, IMO, should NOT be having to foot the bill for new stadiums.

We don't pay for Mcdonalds to build a new place, do we?
