For those of you that didn't watch the game on Sunday night (and you're probably lucky, as only 3 things happened: 1) A boring game was played 2) Steve Smith and Garbage time Adrian Peterson conspired to fuck my fantasy teams 3) Steve Smith did a line of coke off a cheerleaders bossom and then did a post-game interview with Andre Kramer) then you missed a seemingly innocent 'heated' discussion between Lord Favrington of Favreville and Duke Childress, Non-Master of his own domain.
Al and Chris, their usual useful selves didn't mention it. After the game, however, a reporter (don't know name, read link) broke the story thats now being picked up by Profootballtalk.com: Duke Chilly tried to pull his Favre and the Favre didn't comply.
So a head coach gives an order to someone and that person refuses. The game was 7-6 (minny was leading) at the time, so this looks really odd. Why pull your starting QB? Its not like Brett Favre was having an average night (it was well below average by Tavaris Jackson's high standards), but up till that point, Lord Favrington hadn't yet favred the favres in the favre with his favring favre. The bigger story, though, of course, wasn't him being pulled, but him refusing. Would Brady not come out? Obviously, he would, we saw him benched by Belichick in the Saints game. Would Manning not come out? Well, ... let's not worry about that.
The easy conclusion to draw is that Favre feels he's bigger than the coach, than the team, than the game. Not to get off on a tangent, but part of this might have to do with the bloated, useless, piece of shit media that feeds into the egos of fuck heads like favre just so they can be sure to get an 'exclusive' interview with him next off season when he decides to fuck with the collective psyche of the Minnesota Vikings organization and its' fans. If the coach doesn't have the respect of his quarterback, how can he have the respect of his team? And more importantly, how can someone with any SELF-respect walk around with that beard and that hair?
The Vikings just gave Chilly an extension. Now I think he's wishing he could extend an appendage to Lord Favre (not the same appendage Lord Favre just extended an appendage up his ass).
