Vikes Cleared of Tampering.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has ruled that the Minnesota Vikings did not tamper with Brett Favre in trying to get the quarterback to sign with them.

Commissioner Goodell informed the Packers and Vikings on Monday that he had completed his review of the charges and found no violations of league policy.

In his letter to the teams, Commissioner Goodell said that, while those involved acknowledged conversations between Favre and Vikings coaches, "None of those conversations suggest that Favre was soliciting a job or that other teams were soliciting his services."

Vikings head coach Brad Childress also denied on Monday that his team has had contact with the Packers regarding a potential trade for Favre.

Childress dismissed a published report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that said the Packers have made preliminary contact with the Vikings about Favre. He was reinstated and added to the Packers' active roster on Monday.

The Packers filed the tampering charges against the Vikings in July, alleging illegal contact between the Vikings and Favre and expressing their belief that interest from the Vikings was driving Favre's sudden change of heart about playing football in 2008.

The Packers filed the charges based at least in part between records of phone conversations between Favre and Darrell Bevell, Minnesota's offensive coordinator. Bevell is a former Green Bay assistant and a friend of Favre's.

Really. What happened. A little aged Favre and some repressed ill feelings from Thompson and McCarthy and 'presto' shiney yellow cheese turns to green mold.

I'm not sure they are as incompetent as just arrogant and untruthful. Can you believe anything Ted Thompson says right now? Favre had a Packer cell phone...uh, no. Minnesota was tampering...uh, no. We discussed a trade with Minnesota...uh, no. Get your act together Green Bay...seriously, this is ridiculous.

it's like filing a false police report... the pack should be hit with a penalty here. The evidence was so pathetically weak here. Like Raff said in another thread, this was clear headhunting... They tried to put some tarnish on the Vikes organization for no reason. The Pack front office has been pathetic this offseason, Like a little boy in a grocery store throwing a tantrum or something annoying everybody.

Time to turn the tables on these allegations and get a draft pick of our own for the blatant Head Hunting by the Pack. :-?

Better for the Vikes to sign Penny and beat the cheese out of the Pack with a QB you got becuase they wouldn't keep Favre.
