Deanna Favre Thinks the Media is Hard on Brett

↵Deanna Favre, wife of Brett, is no fan of Jay Glazer and his sources. In a rambling blog post on the Favre Hope Foundation's website, Deanna lashes out of the football media who have criticized Brett for selling out his old team. ↵
↵⇥Over the past couple of weeks, my heart has been very heavy. I have stood by…silently… watching the media continually attack my husband...Certainly, having been in public life for 18 years, this is not new to us. However, this latest round of media scrutiny has been harder, more disheartening and seemingly unending. [...]
↵⇥
↵⇥[O]ver the past weeks, we have been deeply affected by the various media reports and accusations that have unfairly questioned Brett’s loyalty, fairness and character. [...] But, I will say, most hurtful are those media reports who would like you to believe that Brett is eaten up with bitterness over his split with the Packers. Still feeling some grief, sure… but not bitterness. [...] [C]ertainly, Brett does not, in any way, hold a vendetta against his former team. But that has not stopped some from scrutinizing his every move and blaming him for so many things that simply are not true. ↵
↵Every high-profile NFL player gets criticized from some corner of the analyst class. Arguably, Favre has been treated with kid gloves on television more than any other QB in the last decade. (Steve Young also escaped criticism, and Tom Brady has been golden since 2001. But Favre's on another plane of sainthood.)
↵
↵I mean, even as Favre admitted giving a long dissertation on the Packers playbook to a Green Bay rival, big-name pundits like Peter King and the entire on-air staff at ESPN were finding ways to undercut criticism The Gunslinger. Even in this darkest hour of Favre's reputation, the most watched/read analysts have taken bullets for him. What more does Deanna want?↵
