We pointed out late last night or early this morning (hell, I can’t remember) the curious omission of the most pointed phrase from Brett Favre’s answer to Jon Gurden’s question regarding what Favre would say to Packers fans about Favre’s new address in the Twin Cities.
Originally, the final sentence of the answer was this: “You just have to let it go and just move on.”
In the late night/early morning version, the “and just move on” was omitted. The subtle change gave the overall response, in our opinion, a much softer edge.
So we sent Bill Hofheimer of ESPN an e-mail requesting an explanation.
“This is simply a matter of different people were cutting different versions,” Hofheimer said. “It was an edit room decision. Nothing more than that.”
We’ll leave it to PFT Planet to chime in on whether they believe that the change that was made from Sunday morning to Sunday evening was “nothing more than that.”
