Anybody who has ever played poker knows that eventually your hand is going to get called. The hand is being called in Green Bay as Favre has been officially reinstated and will report to training camp tomorrow at noon. His plane is expected to land in Green Bay at 5:30 pm where tonight's Family Night Scrimmage is scheduled to be played before 60,000+ fans. Favre is not expected to be at the game tonight.
The ball is in Green Bay's court after weeks of back and forth discussions. "I think we have to force it," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "I think it's come to the point where there needs to be some decisions made on behalf of the Packers, on behalf of Brett, on behalf of all the fans."
Hopefully you haven't had your fantasy draft yet as it would be nice to know where Favre stands prior to having to make that difficult choice. I've been invited to participate in the Stinky Tee Fantasy Sports Network Experts League and am thankful that the draft was postponed until next week. I'd hate to have to be in the position of possibly passing on Favre because not enough solid information exists to make a good decision.
Unless your name is Brett, Bus, Mike, or Ted, your guess is as good as mine as to what happens with Favre this week, but we'll all be watching.
