Favre’s excuses ring hollow

MANKATO – Vikings players ride bicycles from their dorm rooms to practice at training camp, to save time and avoid signing autographs. As the 80 players who have reported to camp took the field for their first practice on Friday afternoon, a white bike remained in front of the players’ dorm.

It was adorned with the number 4, a reminder that Brett Favre, the Hamlet of Hattiesburg, has placed his comfort over the needs and wants of a team offering to pay him $13 million for six months of employment, has again placed himself on a different plane than his teammates.
