    That's SO five minutes ago!

    I hear he's scheduled another press conference for tomorrow to announce he's considering changing his mind, but he's not sure yet. :tup:

    Childress says he's not aware of Favre's intent to retire

    Posted by Mike Florio on August 3, 2010 12:25 PM ET

    Vikings coach Brad Childress arrived at the podium roughly 10 minutes late for his previously-scheduled press conference.

    Amazingly, he said nothing about the Brett Favre situation in his opening remarks.

    Even more amazingly, the first question had nothing to do with Favre.

    The second question dealt with the reason why we were all watching the press conference.

    Childress said that he's not aware of Favre telling anyone he's not playing. Seriously.

    So either Childress is lying, or Favre has opted to tell folks other than Chilly -- even though the two men have spoken in the past 24 hours.

    Childress reiterated that he won't be surprised if Favre does or doesn't play. "He's got to feel like he can jump all in," Childress said. "He's not a half-baked guy."

    After further questioning on the matter, Childress said, "I feel like this is Watergate."

    As far as the NFL is concerned, Coach, it is

    To be fair, this latest round is on the media. THEY are reporting that Favre will retire, he hasn't said anything.

    Favre says ankle still bothers him

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 7, 2010 6:31 PM ET

    Not content to let the Hall of Fame inductees hog all the media attention on Saturday, Brett Favre texted his buddy Steve Mariucci with the latest semi-update on his status.

    "His arm feels great," Mariucci said. "His conditioning is good but he hasn't run much without pain in his ankle. It [his ankle] still gives him pain and it needs to be better before he reports."

    So, Favre still says he needs the ankle to improve. No surprise there. Otherwise, he wouldn't have a good excuse to hold out of the difficult part of training camp.

    Yeah, seriously. What a douche. Doesn't he realize all text messaging and phone conversations need to come to a standstill during the HOF induction?
