Does Brett Favre’s denial of a Jay Glazer claim the former Packers QB dished dirt on his former team to the Lions ring true? Was ESPN’s refusal to acknowledge the story an attempt to curry favor with Favre or an outright diss of Fox Sports? Never mind all that, because Deanna Favre — in the most intense blog entry since the launch of “My Jayson Williams.com” — would like you to know “Brett is the same man we know who is filled with great character, strength, goodness and love. Truly, nothing has changed but a uniform.”
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. Some incidents, like the locker room pranks appear funny (but they are still untrue)¦ Others, like the questionable phone calls to other teams, are hurtful, distasteful, and¦ still untrue as they have been reported.
Because of this, lately, my heart has been so heavy. It is very hard to watch the daily toll this has taken on Brett… First and foremost, I am his defender when people tear him down. Thus, each word and accusation weigh down on me like a ton of bricks, because I know the truth behind the rumors. My first instinct is to fight for him”for his character, his peace and his reputation. At the end of the day, I am not just Brett™s wife, I am his biggest fan.
It’s pretty inspirational stuff, though I was a little surprised to find the post didn’t end with, “signed, Peter King.”
