Yeah, things such as this are why I stopped watching ESPN with the exception of coverage of actual sporting events. It's gotten out of hand, they're like those 24-hour news networks. They have to fill the airwaves with something
because they make the time slots for it. So, if turning hearsay and rumor into fact is what they have to do, then they will. Odds are he just wants attention or ESPN is desperate, possibly both.
"Oh wait, this just in, Brett Favre shot a hog on his property. We'll get reaction from our analysts. Does he still have that killer instinct in him? Let's send it over to our panel!"
