Let the games begin! The Brett Favre sweepstakes have barely begun and already the Green Bay Packers are yelling cheater! Looks like the Minnesota Vikings may have been working to influence Favre and his decision to return to football:
The Green Bay Packers have filed tampering charges against the Minnesota Vikings alleging that the team made inappropriate contact with Brett Favre, a person familiar with the Packers’ complaint told The Associated Press Wednesday night.
The person, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject, said Packers officials have expressed their belief that interest from the Vikings was driving Favre’s sudden change of heart about playing football in 2008.
“They feel like Favre had something (in place), and that’s why he was so anxious to get his release all of a sudden,” the person said.
Gasp! Someone skirting the rules in professional sports? I’m shocked!
Can you picture Brett Favre’s number 4 in the Viking purple and white returning to Lambeau to face the Packers? The only thing worse would be seeing him with the Bears!
