I guess I can accept it, it just never ceases to amaze me how far the media will kiss the ass of the "gunslinging" quarterback of Green Bay. Honestly, this man can do no wrong. He could beat his wife and the press would say:
"Sure he beat his wife, but thats just Brett Favre. Brett Favre just doesn't take any guff from no one, including his wife. Brett Favre doesn't follow the rules, Brett Favre makes the rules. Brett Favre made all the right hits too, right in the kidney and stomach so not to bruise her face. Brett Favre knows a pretty face when he sees one and wants to keep it that way. Brett Favre's wife beating technique is unorthodox, but it really gets the job done. If you're gonna have to beat your wife, you can't ask for a better wife beater than Brett Favre."
So the editors at SI believe there is no better sportsman than Favre. No, not Brady, no not David Ortiz, no not the golden boy Tony Romo, no not...well it goes on like that really. I believe there must be better sportsman out there this season in all the realm of sports. Hopefully Deadspin's SHOTY awards might find a more worthy contender.
