We are receiving a report now that the president of the Green Bay Packers, Mark Murphy, flew to Hattiesburg, Miss. today to personally meet with Brett Favre and ask him not to report to camp.
According to multiple sources, Favre left the building where the meeting was held about 1:30 p.m.
There is no word on what the parties had for lunch, but a plate of individually wrapped cold-cut sandwiches were seen near the meeting site. There was no indication of warm sandwiches being available, but sources close to the site would not rule out the presence of a microwave.
Favre, thankfully, is not alone in this struggle. More than a few times in my career, my boss has told me that it might be better if I didn’t come in that day either.
