Favre Caught in Web of Espionage

And by "espionage" I mean "stupidity."

From Access Vikings:
As we await the NFL’s decision on the tampering charges filed by the Packers against the Vikings for “inappropriate dialogue” with Brett Favre, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had an interesting bit of information in a piece he wrote about the quarterback today.

McGinn writes that a source said Favre had continued to use a Packers-issued cell phone and that when the team checked the phone records it found “repeated calls to coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.”

The possibility of Favre having used a phone issued by the Packers had been speculated on last week after the Associated Press reported that Green Bay informed the NFL it felt “an investigation of the phone records would show more than ‘normal contact’ between the Vikings and Favre, even before he formally asked for his release to play for another team.”

Three things are obvious here:

1. Favre is a snake with no regard for his team or its fans.
2. He probably also emailed the Vikes staff repeatedly from his Packers email account, with little or no restraint.
3. As a spokesman for T-Mobile, his credibility is shot, as he obviously does not patronize their services.
