The Brett Favre Saga

Posted in Blogs, Pictures on July 31, 2008 by Brody

Rumors are circulating in full force regarding the fate of Brett Favre in the National Football League. By filing for re-instatement Favre has finally made clear his intentions to continue to play professional football. Discussions began yesterday between Favre and Packers president Mark Murphy, with no word yet as to whether Favre’s career will continue in Green Bay or if he will be traded (Tampa Bay maybe?).

Many news agencies are reporting that Murphy’s intentions were to convince Favre to stay retired, even going as far as reporting offers of $20 Million over 10 years so long as he doesn’t play. Come on, you call yourselves journalists? Obviously the tight-lipped Packer camp does not sit well with the media, so they need to start making things up. Favre is playing this year whether you like it or not.

As for whether or not he should have stayed retired, NO WAY! It’s his civic duty to come back and play past his prime, just as every other superstar in sports has. Nobody remembers Emmit Smith with the Cardinals or Joe Montana with the Cheifs. Is Kurt Warner still playing? Who cares! Super Bowl XXXIV MVP! It’s not limited to football either. Jordan as a Wizard…need I say more? Bottom line, if Brett Favre wants to play, Brett Favre should play. He’s got nothing to lose.

Transport Canada – What the hell are you trying to prove?

Posted in Blogs, Pictures on July 30, 2008 by Andy

I woke up this morning to the news that transport Canada released a report on the cause of the horrific crash that occurred mid January in Bathurst New Brunswick that killed 7 Students and 1 teacher (the drivers wife).

This report follows the heals of the RCMP’s report yesterday that said that the 15 passenger van they were driving wouldn’t have passed an inspection.

Transport canada also reiterates that the van wouldn’t have passed inspection.  But then they say that driver fatigue contributed to the crash.  Now, this is where my bone of contention occurs…

Does this statement bring back those 7 young kids? NO!

Does this statement bring back his wife?  NO!

Does this statement rehash the overwhelming guilt and pain of the man who was driving, the families and the city of Bathurst have felt since this crash.  HELL YES!

So why? I agree due diligence should occur.  However a BS statement saying that he was tired???? What did they do, ask him????

This report does not change what happened and there were many factors that contributed to this crash other than the driver.  WRONG PLACE….WRONG TIME!  Icy Roads, 2 Lane highway,  an oncoming transport truck and a van that wouldn’t pass inspection.

I just hope that this blows over quickly and the families, the people of Bathurst and MR. Lord can continue to live in the present and remember their loved ones for the time they had together.

Shame on you transport canada…your report helps no one!

Huh?
