Favre tries to profit from end of streak

Brett Favre, Kevin Rogers

Apparently, a salary of $16 million for 2010 isn’t enough.

Not long after Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was placed on the inactive list for Monday night’s game against the Giants, Favre’s official web site began selling a signed football commemorating his 297-game streak of starts.

For the low, low price of $499.99.

“One of the most historic streaks ever in all of sports has come to an end,” the message reads on Favre’s site.  “The NFL’s own Ironman Brett Favre has ended his consecutive starting game streak at 297. Chances are if your under 40 you don’t remember a time in the NFL with out Brett Favre playing on Sunday.  This is a monumental feat especially at the quarterback position.  Just consider since 1992 the Chicago Bears have watched over 20 QB’s start for their team; and the average career length in the NFL is less than four years.”

The signed ball will include the inscription “297 starts 1992-2010.”

Surely, there has to be a better way to spend $499.99.

    As if Favre actually runs that site……..

    Keep us posted on the number of rubes who skip their mortgage (hell, WE pay it anyway) to buy this garbage.

    Thank you.

    In for 2. What a deal!

  4. hobartbaker says: Dec 13, 2010 7:36 PM

    Yeah, you could buy about 20 copies of the PFT Magazine for that price. Pass them on to your grandchildren in mint condition.

  5. mean13 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:36 PM

    Does Jenn get a discount?

  6. pacificamjr says: Dec 13, 2010 7:36 PM

    pathetic. brett, youd be better off signing pics of your sad little johnson, then at least your scores of groupies would have something to remember you by…

  7. bodybaggame says: Dec 13, 2010 7:38 PM

    4sacroc……I know

  8. leroysbutler says: Dec 13, 2010 7:40 PM

    What a scumbag. Anyone who buys one of those footballs is an idiot with a capital “I”.

  9. notredamegirl says: Dec 13, 2010 7:41 PM

    I dont’t see nothing wrong with this! All sports figures do this. I guess since it is Brett Favre it is wrong for him to do this. Ya’ll need to leave this man alone! Its starting to get like the Michael Vick hoopla! Lame!

  10. doe22us says: Dec 13, 2010 7:41 PM

    True story i just ordered 200 of those balls what a money loving HO HO HO

  11. shmu65 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:42 PM

    So his business people and agent got a head start on his behalf. Whoopee… You know that he’s not the one that updates his own page right??? Right???

  12. mataug says: Dec 13, 2010 7:42 PM

    “Just consider since 1992 the Chicago Bears have watched over 20 QB’s start for their team;”…. once a Packer, always a Packer ha ha ha ha

  13. karpsta says: Dec 13, 2010 7:43 PM

    Cal Ripken sells his streak signed balls for $1700. So this is a bargain.

  14. scoopandslam says: Dec 13, 2010 7:43 PM

    He’s gotta start increasing his revenue streams in order to compensate the millions Sterger will be taking from him…

  15. JSpicoli says: Dec 13, 2010 7:43 PM

    When you have the title of King Douche already, and you promote yourself, what does your title become?

  16. momsasaynt says: Dec 13, 2010 7:44 PM

    the money goes to charity. Favre 4ever

  17. granadafan says: Dec 13, 2010 7:45 PM

    Well, the diva’s gotta raise money for the Sterger lawsuit somehow!

    Either that or the NFL will quietly issue a statement that Favre was suspended for today’s game.

  18. melikefootball says: Dec 13, 2010 7:45 PM

    This again shows the character of this guy. As much as he has done, is indecisions of the last few years plus possible off field antics plus this. As they say COME ON MAN!!!

  19. habsman says: Dec 13, 2010 7:45 PM

    For that price, you would expect the football to have an etching of his penis at the very least.

  20. altoon88 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:45 PM

    you stay classy, Brett Favre

  21. tjacks7 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:46 PM

    I can’t think $500. Favre football for everyone for Christmas!!

  22. tjacks7 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:47 PM

    Woops, I can’t think of a better way to spend $500. Damn keyboard.

    Thanks for the link!

  24. joetoronto says: Dec 13, 2010 7:48 PM

    “Surely, there has to be a better way to spend $499.99″

    They’re sold out, what does that tell YOU, Mike?

  25. nepatriots128154 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:48 PM

    It’s now out of stock

    Wow

  26. thumper59 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:48 PM

    Come-on man!

  27. dilberry says: Dec 13, 2010 7:49 PM

    Does this honestly surprise anybody?

  28. profootballwalk says: Dec 13, 2010 7:52 PM

    I’d be afraid that when they shipped it, it would go to my neighbor’s mailbox.

  29. demolition510 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:52 PM

    I’m surprised he didn’t hold an ESPN press conference in the local high school gym and shed his manly tears….

  30. canadianvikingfaniii says: Dec 13, 2010 7:53 PM

    Well Sterger isn’t going to win the lawsuit, so she will have to become an adult film star and escort. So he is saving up for when that comes to fruition.

  31. 4ever19 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:54 PM

    Will he send Jenn Sterger a picture of one of these balls?

  32. hobartbaker says: Dec 13, 2010 7:54 PM

    Tavares Jackson’s commemorative football will read “1 Consecutive Start, December 13-13, 2010″.

  33. darklighter says: Dec 13, 2010 7:57 PM

    The man is pondscum.

  34. pottsvillemaroons says: Dec 13, 2010 7:57 PM

    For an extra $29.95, he’ll throw in a “personalized” text. But you have to do this in the next 20 minutes becasue we can’t do this all day.

  35. seanx40 says: Dec 13, 2010 7:58 PM

    Why shouldn’t he profit from his hard work? Lots of sports stars charge for things like that. Besides, he doesn’t have a job after the season ends. He also has a possible ugly divorce pending.

  36. kcfanatic says: Dec 13, 2010 8:00 PM

    I don’t want one, but I bet a bunch of people buy them up.

    As much of a Pain in the A$$ he’s been the last couple years, you still have to take your hat off to him. The guy was fun, and exciting. He played like we would all like to play in the backyard pick-up games. Between his great touchdown passes and his crazy interceptions, noone has ever been more of a lightning rod for the NFL.

  37. sarahpalinhater says: Dec 13, 2010 8:02 PM

    That’s great Brett. Lets fleece the public who are already struggling in a bad economy so you can have a few more thousands of dollars :-)

  38. tjgoodfella says: Dec 13, 2010 8:02 PM

    test

  39. Wisconsin77 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:03 PM

    Was waiting for this. Knew you would have to say something as it is in your DNA to try to bring down Brett Favre whenever you get the chance. Biased journalism at its best!

  40. cubano76 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:03 PM

    I’ll give em $2.50 for it. But they will have to pay for the shipping.

  41. realitypolice says: Dec 13, 2010 8:04 PM

    Why shouldn’t he?

    This is America, right? If you don’t want to buy it, Don’t.

  42. Deb says: Dec 13, 2010 8:04 PM

    They all sell their autographs. They all offer signed jerseys, footballs, photos, and helmets for sale via the team or their personal Web sites. Where have you been?

    Nothing unusual about this. Great magnet material though, isn’t it? :lol: What will you do without him, Mike?

    Oh no!! You’ll write twice as many stories on us :shock:

  43. Wisconsin77 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:05 PM

    He and his family probably doesn’t even know anything about this at this point.

    btw, the item is already sold out.

  44. flik44 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:07 PM

    Surely, there has to be a better way to spell you’re.

  45. bknospam says: Dec 13, 2010 8:10 PM

    Wait…what? You’re kidding right?

    I’m under 40 and I can remember football in the 70′s. But if you are under 40 you probably can’t remember a time in the NFL with out Brett Favre? Really?

    Maybe it’s just because I’m from Pittsburgh, where the NFL wasn’t invented in 1991.

  46. deelron says: Dec 13, 2010 8:11 PM

    I’m pretty sure even people under 40 remember 1991.

  47. tjgoodfella says: Dec 13, 2010 8:11 PM

    The censorship on this site is amazing! And expected. Thanks NBC.

  48. righthereisay says: Dec 13, 2010 8:12 PM

    This guy is classic.

  49. lionsfan20 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:14 PM

    Favre = Moron

  50. georgegissing1313 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:14 PM

    Favre should commemorate his 335 interceptions with a signed football; he can charge $335.oo a piece. I’d get the plastic out for that ball.

  51. livenbreathefootball says: Dec 13, 2010 8:18 PM

    Yeah, the Bears have had 20 qbs since 1992, but they only have one fewer Super Bowl appearances than any team that had Favre on it in that time.

  52. lordtebow says: Dec 13, 2010 8:19 PM

    This site is a joke! In what way is Favre trying to profit? It’s not as though Favre himself is selling it on ebay. If you knew anything about football, you would realize this is an amazing record, even if you don’t like Favre.

  53. jrizzo575 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:20 PM

    did his site really say “…if YOUR under 40….” or is that PFT’s error?

    Both seem completely plausible; however, my money is on this being on Favre. Deanna is probably in charge of the web site.

    Gee, can I use that logic to avoid buying health care insurance, smart guy?

  55. dirtdawg55 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:23 PM

    Brett Favre is also selling limited editions of the picture he sent Sterger. They are going for $69.69.

    And props to you georgegissing1313 – funny, funny comment.

  56. righthereisay says: Dec 13, 2010 8:26 PM

    Interesting how they had this all ready to sell, even though he was just placed as inactive around 6:30PM.

  57. Wisconsin77 says: Dec 13, 2010 8:33 PM

    yep, because he will make what? 1/100th of a game check off of this?

  58. pastabelly says: Dec 13, 2010 8:42 PM

    He and Sterger deserve each other. They are both whores.

    =====================================
    20 QBs…… that is almost as many as the number of times Favre has retired over the last three years.

  65. kimcon22000 says: Dec 13, 2010 9:19 PM

    Paris Hilton would be a great new wife for Favre.
    And she gives it up for free = more money for Favre’s divorce ………

  66. grandpoopah says: Dec 13, 2010 9:29 PM

    Someone who is 40 today would have been 22 when Favre started his first NFL game. Why would such a person not be able to “remember a time in the NFL with out Brett Favre playing on Sunday?”

  67. joeflaccosunibrow says: Dec 13, 2010 9:29 PM

    Proceeds benefit the Jen Sterger Payoff Fund.

  68. kimcon22000 says: Dec 13, 2010 9:30 PM

    I wonder how many unaccounted for “little Favres” are out there?

  69. belicheckyoself says: Dec 13, 2010 9:31 PM

    I’m under 30 and remember the 49ers late 80′s Superbowls.

  70. tprt2 says: Dec 13, 2010 9:36 PM

    Let’s see – would you rather him be like half the slugs in this country who no longer want to work and be productive and who expect other people to support them?

    Why do quasi-commies in this country feel compelled to vilify the work ethic that has made this country’s citizenry the most wealthy any nation’s ever seen?

    We should all feel proud of Favre’s work ethic because his work ethic provides jobs and keeps the lights on for a good number of people.

  71. sdbolts says: Dec 13, 2010 9:37 PM

    Maybe they cut a deal with Jenn that she can keep the proceeds. So after he sells three or four of these things she’ll take 2 grand, and both Jenn and Brett will GO AWAY!

  72. Deb says: Dec 13, 2010 9:50 PM

    @4sacroc …

    Yeah, you can use that logic to avoid buying health insurance if we can leave you on the side of the road to die like a dog if you get cancer. But unfortunately, they’ll take you to an ER and the rest of us in the already overwhelmed Middle Class will wind up paying your health-care costs and ours. The leeches of society aren’t the ones who genuinely can’t afford to pay, but dimwits like you who want to spend their money, then get everyone else to take care of them when it’s gone.

    @sarahpalinhater …

    Oh please. He’s not fleecing anyone. That’s a typical price for autographed sports memorabilia–less than a third of what Cal Ripken’s stuff is selling for, according to one commenter. If people can’t afford it or don’t want it, they won’t buy it. No wonder people think we’re clueless bleeding hearts. :roll:

    Litte Brett needs to sell the balls because that is right where Jen Sterger has him.

  81. rick1922 says: Dec 13, 2010 11:07 PM

    335INT;S that a better record than the 297 games he should be proud.

  82. barneyrumble says: Dec 13, 2010 11:10 PM

    I would think that would be one hell of a good investment. The guys going to the Hall of Fame, and you could buy a ball he signed, on the date he lost the streak? Dumb not to buy that if you can afford one.

  84. skolvikes says: Dec 14, 2010 12:10 AM

    Let’s be real here. Anyone that actually buys one of these stands to make a lot out of their investment if they choose to do so. Sports Memorabilia is not a tiny market, anything signed, especially something historic is going to go up in value drastically.

    Why shouldn’t he get a piece of his own hard work? It would be foolish of him not to.

  85. golonger says: Dec 14, 2010 1:31 AM

    Gee…..and Peyton Manning isn’t a total commercial whore????………and at least Favre didn’t go in there and take one snap just to keep his streak alive like Manning does!

  86. johnnyballsack says: Dec 14, 2010 1:34 AM

    The streak will go down in history. I ordered my ball tonight. I am pretty sure it will end up at one of my neighbors houses instead for one final INT. Seriously- he is a first ballot hall of famer.

  87. trollaikman8 says: Dec 14, 2010 3:00 AM

    That’s just downright tacky.

    I don’t care if all of the funds go to Oxfam. F your streak old man. Quit cashing in. You make $1 Million per pathetic game this season.

    P.S. Adding a .99 to any sale is just douchy. Call it $500 even. And please, just go away.

  88. tominmilwaukee says: Dec 14, 2010 4:33 AM

    As being a broke college student, i cannot imagine spending $500 on sports memorabilia…… But might not be a bad investment if one has the money…..

    I don’t often agree with anything you say. Most of it is completely ludicrous actually. However, you hit the nail on the head with this one.

    The world needs more people like you. (By that I mean with regard to political views, not homer Steelers fans, which there is already a surplus of).

  90. tommytd says: Dec 14, 2010 6:15 AM

    Would you expect anything less from this moron! I guess a million per game just doesn’t cut it. This guy is truly a dick (pun intended).

  91. patspastured says: Dec 14, 2010 7:04 PM

    $500 for a signed football is pretty steep….

    For half as much Favre will personally send you a text of a picture of his helmet

    Come to think of it, Jenn Sterger’s got nothing to complain about – she got that for free!

  92. blaz0037 says: Dec 18, 2010 10:23 AM

    clearly, most of you PFT losers don’t appreciate this piece of history, but make no mistake, the HOF will.
