As far as the damage that may come from McKenzie's dispute, how is calling him out in public going to help? That's the crux of my arguement, that Favre is doing more damage to his team by this, which makes me wonder why did it. I think Favre is in love with himself and this was one more way for him to get in the limelight and look like a "leader". He is starting to schmooze the way to his after football career.
Actually Favre, spends his off-season in his hometown of Kiln, Mississippi; and has publically stated that he intends to quietly spend his retirement there raising his family and doing some hunting and fishing. He consciously seems to be already removing himself from the "limelight" (no longer does off-season interviews). I don't think he has any ulterior "shmoozing" motives, just calls it like he sees it when asked...
Sure, Favre's comments may ultimately harm any potential negotiations; then again, it doesn't appear likely there's going to be any negotiations, and McKenzie needs a bit of a reality check. Thankfully, Favre has never been one to use cliched sports-speak or edit his opinions.
