Since there's nothing going on, have a read. A bit of speculation here I think - but it's good for a laugh and it's got a good finish.

BRETT BACKLASH BUILDING
It appears that the recent temper tantrum attributed to Packers quarterback Brett Favre could have been the first step in getting his previously loyal-to-a-fault teammates to begin thinking more critically about their cranky signal-caller.
In response to Favre's recent effort to skip out on a mandatory minicamp in order to prepare for his daughter's high school graduation, a source with knowledge of the situation says that one player mused aloud, "Who does [Favre] think he is, Roger Clemens?"
The talk among the players also is that the front office won't make a run at receiver Keyshawn Johnson, in part because the perception among the troops is that the powers-that-be are "fed up" with Favre.
Usually, a star player's decision to stick around for too long manifests itself in embarrassing performances on the field. In Favre's case, he's still physically fine. But folks appears to be finally growing weary after nearly five years of tiptoeing around the delicate genius as he decides on an annual basis whether to grace the world with his continuing presence on the roster.
