What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The Favre-gasm Is Now A Matter of Public Record

In the ongoing trial involving Minnesota Vikings’ defensive tackles Kevin and Pat Williams and the weight-loss supplement StarCaps, the core question at hand is whether the NFL violated Minnesota law by suspending the two players. Granted, this case is no different from most legal cases as it involves some complexities that aren’t immediately apparent.

One of the witnesses called to testify during this affair was Vikings’ head coach Brad Childress. This provided the plaintiffs’ attorney, Peter Ginsberg, an opportunity to do his Matlock impression by asking Childress — under oath — a question that had absolutely nothing to do with the issue at hand. Naturally, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, one of the prime instigators of the never-ending Favre-gasm had to run with it.

Some mysteries might linger. With the Childress under oath, Ginsberg asked, “Now that I have you in this position, who’s going to be your quarterback next year?”

Most in the room laughed loudly, and Childress didn’t answer.

First of all, when one is under oath, aren’t they required to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth? So, why isn’t Childress cooling his heels right now in a Hennepin County cell for contempt of court?

Probably because like the rest of us, he has no idea as to the answer to that question. King Brett I has no need to answer to a coach, a court, the fans, his teammates or anybody for that matter. This is the fate Viking fans have all too willingly sealed for themselves. 

But if Ginsberg wanted to grill Childress under oath, there are plenty of other questions that Vikings fans surely want answered.

  • What the hell is wrong with Adrian Peterson?
  • How many times does Bryant McKinnie have to get your quarterback nearly killed before you realize he sucks?
  • Why haven’t you figured out Jared Allen can only get to the quarterback against C-list offensive linemen?
  • Against the Saints, were you deliberately playing for a 55-yard field goal because you know Favre with the ball in a big game equals death?
  • How many times are you willing to let Brett Favre rape you?

Or maybe when they put Childress in that cell, they could leave him with belt and shoelaces and encourage him to “do the honorable thing.”

    The Vikings are a “play-off” team, but without Favre they aren’t a “Super-Bowl” team, he doesn’t know yet if he’s going to play this year or not. His legacy from last year would be difficult to duplicate, but it’s up to Brett to decide if he’s healthy enough to show up for game one in NewOrleans on Sept. 9.
