That's right. Ted Thompson, GM of GB, decreed that the only way Favre could come back as a Cheese Inspector would be as a backup. Said Cheeseheads—at least at the level of management—have moved on, and are looking to the future with their young, project QB.
For one, this episode of will-he-or-won't-he certainly tarnishes Favre's image as a Packer. I can only guess into what sort of conniptions this has thrown the digestive tracts of cheddar lovers Wisconsin-wide. He's no Green 'n Gold saint; not any more.
It also seems like Thompson and the rest of the Green Bay management won't let him play for any other team. Thank goodness we don't have to read Kevin Seifert, who now writes for ESPN about the NFC North instead of the Star Tribune about the Vikings, conjecture about Favre in Purple. (See below for why that won't happen.)
