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.

I don't know Tim, I think Ted Thompson had it in for Brett since day one.  I hate that guy.

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.

If there's a line forming to kick the ever loving shit out of Bret Farve for his bullshit deceptive tactics I would like to be the first in line to kick his teeth in.  Green Bay loves the hell out of him and he's playing them like a fiddle.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)—The Packers aren’t about to let Brett Favre become a free agent. And while he’s now free to return to Green Bay for another season, there’s no guarantee he’ll be the Packers’ starting quarterback if he does.

I hope the front office bury his career and expose him for the asshole he is.

Over the past weekend, I was totally stoked that the A's swept the stupid Giants in baseball!    

And for auto racing, I'm not surprised the Audi dominated in the 24 Hours of LeMans.    I got to see a little bit of this race at McCovey's restaurant Saturday night (yeah, it is primarily a place paying homage to a famous Giant, so seeing the A's winnin' that game over the Giants on a huge screen made it even more fun!) on the SPEED Channel.
