|I feel sorry for Freeze. He's a Dodger fan. As if there's not enough drama in L.A., now there's Manny. I think without his attitude around the team can get back on track.|

|I love him, but even I think this is a bit much :|
Finals MVP Paul Pierce, who recently spent three days at a ball camp in Madrid, is making, ahem, news about what he said to a Spanish reporter. The money translation, via RedsArmy: "Q: Is Kobe really the best player in the world? Pierce: I don't think Kobe is the best player. I'm the best player. There's a line that separates having confidence and being conceited. I don't cross that line but I have a lot of confidence in myself." Surprisingly, Spurs fans seem more upset by this than actual Lakers fans. (Update: OK, Lakers Nation is pretty upset, too.)

|I hope it is not true either. Something has to happen soon. I heard Tampa was interested in him but I think Gruden already has 5 QB's on his roster at the moment.|
|[TIMBONI] Wednesday, July 23, 2008 11:18:41 PM|| |
|Don't get me wrong. I completely respect the man and his abilities as an athlete. I just don't like the behind the back tactics he seems to be using. To the "outsider" it looks like he was trying to get out of a contract and go for the top dollar using the " I'm retiring" story. Trouble is, he's played the " I love Green Bay " card too many times. As it appears now, he's a two faced liar and after all these years I really hope that it's NOT true.|

|Well, this is what I think, it does seem like a huge soap opera which has gotten ridiculous, but, I don't completely blame Brett for it. It is Brett and Ted Thompson. Whatever happens to Brett I will be ok with it. If he stays retired, so it shall be but today I did hear 8 teams may have an interest in him, Tampa in particular. I will watch him in another uniform and I wish the Packers well with Aaron Rodgers. If Brett stays retired, good for his family. You can't blame a guy for trying (to come back). This would be his last chance to do so, so maybe this is his last hurrah so to speak. I still love him.|

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) - Brett Favre knows how to call an audible. A phone call could be another matter.
Favre made “repeated” calls to a pair of Minnesota Vikings coaches using a cell phone issued by the Green Bay Packers, according to a story in Tuesday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Citing sources, the newspaper reported that the nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback made numerous calls to both Vikings coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
Green Bay officials learned of the phone calls by checking the phone records, according to the Journal Sentinel.

|Um . . . I didn't exactly enjoy the . . . pass interference, lack of "in the grasp call", another need for a New York team to win . . . result of the Super Bowl either. It must be odd to have a generational quarterback, but that's kind of what I'm talking about. If the Pack doesn't think change, they are going to get left behind for another generation. I think it's almost disgraceful that Brett would not consider staying in a backup role. If he truly cares about the team and the city they way he claims, he should want nothing more than to advance the future of the team that gave him everything he has today.|

|I can understand what you are saying but really it had been the media hounding him about retirement. They always brought it up to him in interviews and I always thought it was unfair of them to do so. I am not sure what will happen though it looks as if he will not return as the QB for Green Bay. I will always love the guy, I mean we were one play away from the Superbowl last year. I am just glad the team that beat us went all the way (sorry Healer!), it just made the Packers look better. My oldest son is 16 and Brett was QB for Green Bay for 16 years. He will just always be special to me (my son and Brett - LOL). |

|You'd probably know more about that than I would, but without having the "local info" it looks like a scam gone bad. Not to mention that Brett has been pulling at the public's hearts for years with talk of retirement. Management probably just got tired of playing the game and at his age they have to move on some time or it will be another 20 years before the Packers are good again. They suffered from the 60's until the 90's. I don't think they want another drought like that again.|

The Hockey News names Flyers' Stevens coach of year
There was a time during the hockey season when John Stevens' ability to coach the Flyers to the playoffs was questioned. It was in the middle of a losing streak, when the Flyers fell from the top of the division and, seemingly, out of playoff contention.
But Stevens stood behind his team and his staff, and yesterday, Stevens was honored by The Hockey News, which named him coach of the year for leading the Flyers from the bottom of the league to the Eastern Conference finals in one season.
"[Stevens] is the coach that we deemed did the best job in the regular season and postseason," Hockey News editor Jason Kay said yesterday. "John did a great job in leading a great turnaround, but also the style that he employs, such a calm demeanor behind the bench, is an example of his leadership.
"The way that he carries himself showed with the product on the ice, particularly in the playoffs, the way that team stuck together and held together when a lot of people didn't anticipate they would do as well."
In his typical out-of-the-limelight style, Stevens refused to accept the award as an individual honor.
"To me, this is more of an organizational award than a coaching award," Stevens said. "I think that it's a reflection of all the good things done from [general manager Paul Holmgren] down to the players. The honor was given to me, but in my mind it should be given to the entire organization for all the work that everyone has done."
Team chairman Ed Snider and Holmgren did not agree.
"There was a lot of pressure on John and his staff coming into this season," Snider said. "It's truly remarkable what he was able to accomplish, taking us from last place a season ago into the Eastern Conference finals. Our entire organization is extremely proud of all that John and his team accomplished this year."
"John did an exceptional job in his first full season as a head coach in the NHL and of our hockey club," Holmgren added. "He is very deserving of this award." *

|Now that things have developed, I think he tried to pull a "Junior Seau". He had talked with the Vikings. He "retires". Then he comes back after the Packers have moved on. Pulls on the heart strings of the public for the Packers to release him so he can play. One problem . . . we all know about the conversation with the Vikings and he's not at the end of his contract like Junior was.|
