Dear Brett Farve,
I’d like to thank you for the huge disappointment you have handed all of us Vikings fans today. If you want to retire, then RETIRE for heavens sake but why drag us all through it? Is your ego so big you need us all to tell you how much we need you and how much we want you?? Have you thought about how it would feel for us fans to watch you run through the tunnel at Lambeau Field in a Vikings jersey on a Monday night game??
Have you given any thought to how it would feel for us to maybe, finally, have a chance to be a contender for the big game? Even if we didn’t get to that big game, at least we’d have a good season and a good quarterback. Have you given any thought to your flip flopping ALL SUMMER LONG and then, YES, you wanted to come here and the fact that you went and had your surgery and YES, you were feeling good and practicing and you wanted to play here?? Have you given any thought to anyone but your own selfish needs and wants?? Have you given any thought how it felt to know you and your wife were looking for homes in Edina?
You say you’re afraid you’d fall apart before the season were over. That maybe you’re to old to give it one more year. What I’d like to know is did you forget how old you were all year long until today? How does one forget that?
I don’t know about other people but us here, in this house and in our family, we bleed purple and if you need more proof, read this US VIKING FANS and you’ll see, we love our team and we would have loved you.
I don’t blame you for wanting to retire but DO IT ALREADY. Don’t keep doing this. Getting our hopes up and then backing out at the last minute. Make your mind up already. Be a man about it. Retire like Elway or Aikman or Kelly, with dignity. Not like this “should I or shouldn’t I” bullshit and making stupid Sears commercials that you even joke about not being able to make up your mind about buying a TV for crying out loud. WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU?? We are real people with real feelings and we looked forward to your coming here “FOR SURE”, ALL SUMMER LONG and now 2 days before training camp, you wimp out on us??
So Dear Brett Farve, I hope you rot in hell.
