    I need my barf bag just thinking about all those self obsessed sports superstars surrounded by snycophantic Hollywood publicity sluts.

    Maybe you meant this note: ” [Editor's note: Southwest Airlines has provided complimentary barf bags for the folks who attend the ceremony.]” for the Al Harris new item instead of the Favre one?
    Al Harris should rap about how his helmet grabbing technique and wrenching his fellow player’s neck is the only way he knows how to bring people down. He should have been issued far more personal fouls than he’s received.
    Your “Editor’s Notes” are nothing but snarky soundbites. No wonder the tone of this site is consistently so negative.
    FYI – I find it interesting that you made such a derogatory comment about Favre when he’s issued exactly 2 statements and 1 interview to the media since January 24th. You act like he’s drama queen – but really isn’t you, the media, who won’t leave him alone? We all know he’s coming back. We all know that his teammates don’t mind him missing part of camp. We all know that he’s fun to watch on the field. Shut up until Sept 9th. I’m a Vikings fan and a Favre fan – but your unrelenting need to publish something with Brett Favre’s name involved every single day drives even me nuts.

    Regarding the Jacksonville Jaguars, they should move to Los Angeles. Really.
    I feel bad for the fans in Jacksonville, the few loyal ones anyway. I almost feel sorry for the players but they get paid a boat load of money so it’s difficult to feel for them regardless of the fact that their home stadium is rarely if ever, sold out.
    Not sure even winning 10 games in a row would bring the fans back into the stadium this season.

    Josh, the Favre comment was inane, superfluous and just plain overkill. If you wanted to include the ESPY thing as a news bit, fine. If not, fine. But once you decide to use it, just state it and let readers – hang on to your hat here, Josh, this is a NEW IDEA – let your readers draw their own conclusions. How about THAT for innovation?
    Favre played well enough to be nominated in several categories, was invited, asked to present an award (a prestigious one), and plans to attend. Wow – how outrageous can this guy be?!

    josh, i think your editor’s notes are usually pretty funny and are in a florio-esque way what help this site be so original!
    i also think some of you guys should be more tolerant of people’s attempts at humor… the pft guys aren’t trying to be dicks, they are trying to be funny, and they are apparently succeeding when i’m reading. obviously, not everyone can agree on what constitutes funny, but pft’s ongoing growth and success seem to indicate that people are ok with their style…
