Brett Favre Asks the Green Bay Packers for His Release

And here we go.  Chris Mortensen is reporting that Brett Favre wants to play football this season and has asked the Packers for his unconditional release.  I am sick of Favre, and I have always been a fan.  How many times is he going to go through this?  At least in years past he didn't have a teary press conference and announce retirement.

I am of the firm belief that athletes should get to walk away on their own terms.  I don't care if Favre wants to play 10 more years.  I just want him to stop putting on this media circus every offseason.
