The best I could find was this from a Canadian (?!) news source: A potential marketing contract could be the ideal solution for everyone involved in what's become a very public dispute between reti...

I admit when I'm wrong and it must be said that Favre handled the Hall of Fame induction better than I had anticipated. I had imagined it going differently and was surprised that he went out the side door. That being said, of course Favre became the main topic of conversation. I had SportsCenter on to see Brewers highlights and caught interviews with Gilbert Brown and LeRoy Butler and bot...
