Fox will feature a Favre-cam on Sunday when the Minnesota Vikings visit the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. You, the viewer, will not be robbed of a second of Favre’s return, and will see each ball flip, boyish laugh, cheap downfield block, and carefree interception in all its glory, most likely at the expense of things actually happening on the field while Favre chews his nails on the sideline.â†µ
Much to ESPN’s disappointment, the camera will not attempt an in-depth (ha!) examination of Brett Favre’s surgically shortened intestine. (That is best left to the professionals.) The best the WWL could do was take an offhand comment from Favre saying his current Vikings team was “the best I’ve ever been on” from a talent perspective, interview some scorned members of the 1996 team, and then make it the number two story on their NFL page. That’s quality stretching, ESPN, but it pales in comparison to broadcasting his every move on television.
Wait, redact that: they are already in effect doing this every week. It’s FOX that is playing catch-up here. We regret the error.
