You'll run stories about players who end up in prison, abuse drugs or use banned substances. But the indecisive Favre takes another shot at playing, and you turn into pouting children.
Bill Syken's piece on the battle for the Vikings' backup quarterback job (SCORECARD, Aug. 31) was a work of brilliant satire. Without mentioning Favre's name he showed how overblown the whole circus has become.

Tom Verducci talks about Giants pitchers Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain (Who's Bringing the Fear This Fall, Aug. 31) as if they were the next Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale. What about the Cardinals' Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright? They have more wins and a better ERA than the San Francisco twosome, and trail them only in strikeouts. Give me Carpenter and Wainwright over anybody come fall.
