I like Bret Favre.

And I agree, I like Bret Favre too.  I could give two shits what he does in the offseason and I would do the same damn thing as him if I were in his shoes.

You'd purposely screw over your employer who pays you millions and kisses your ass just so you can get increased media attention each year (screw the skipping offseason workout crap, he could still do that and tell the team if he's coming back or not)? Why?

Also, I'd hate Favre on my team because I KNOW he's going to choose to try and make crazy plays late in important games "because it's fun," and no doubt, for people to say "look what Brett Favre did" rather than do what's right to win the game. He's done it time and time again.  That selfishness makes him fun to watch to some, but the fact remains is that he will screw his team on and off the field in exchange for "look at Brett Favre!"

I'm not saying I would do it for the purpose of media attention or screwing over my employer or pissing off my co-workers.  But if somebody is willing to pay me more when I "said" I'm done working for them even if you're just playing them then that is also the fault of the employer.  I'm not saying I agree with what he does, simply that regardless of what he does off the field I am still a fan of his on the field.  Whether you agree or disagree with it the man got what he wanted and will earn more money at the same time.  In a strictly business sense, it's hard to argue with the game he has played: work less and make more money as they beg you to come back and work for them.

If data, science, and logic offends someone, then they probably need to be offended.
