Farve might have a cracked rib

19 posts in this topic

I just heard that on ESPN but they did not say if it would affect his start tonight or how long he would play.

Is that what someones "sources" said. I tell you ESPN is getting as bad or worse than the National Enquirer.

No slam on you jimalm just getting a little tired of all the drama in sports. If he did suffer a cracked rib, throw a flack jacket on him and get him out there, lets see what the old fart can do with some practice time under his belt.

I had the windows down and was enjoying the drive when I heard them talking and I thought it was Farve doing the talking. He is a pretty tough guy so he should play but with a little discomfort.

I heard the same report. Favre was the one that thought he might have a cracked rib. He also said he won't be wearing extra pads so I'm guessing it's not that bad.

Man, that's too bad.

Hey, WAIT JUST A DOGGONE MINUTE! He's not on my team anymore, so he can crack all the ribs he wants. gringringrin

Pretty sure he cracked his head a while ago, not sure about the ribs. Not good for us, he plays well on vicodin.

I could care less what he says to the press. Its all a big game and I don't blame him.

All I care is that when the season starts, he is on his game drama Queen or not.

Guess that explains the evil smirk Rosenfels had the other day in an interview.

Maybe Sage was behind it? grin

At what point do we decide that Favre is screwing around with ESPN reporters since they've practically been riding his jock strap for the past six months and he's tired of the bogus reports they've been putting out and trouble they're causing? Maybe if enough red herrings blow up in their face they'll be more careful on reporting every little rumor they hear without solidifying their sources first. Is this ESPN or TMZ these days?

Adam Schefter is a new guy at ESPN and is apparently trying to make a name for himself, but all I've seen is one bogus report after another about Favre, Marshall, etc come out of this windbag. NFL Network was right to dump this clown.

ESPN has had so much mud on their face in the past six months they're starting to make MSNBC look credible.

Favre is just pre-setting his excuses. I still don't think there is any way he makes it to week 8 health wise.

Who cares if Farve screws with the press. They are always in the players faces and I like the fact that Farve has the moxy to hand it to them.

They deserve everything a player tells them, truth or not.

All the press ever does is try to create some [PoorWordUsage] to interest others to come to their news or HSOforum. It works.

Even if he does have a cracked rib, player have them all the time.

A mountain out of a mole hill is what it is.

Week 8? I don't think he will start the opening game. He will either be cut, injured, or retire before week one.

Actually it was a phone interview with a bad connection he "Favre" really said he may have to throw a Crack-back block and the interviewer thought he said I may have a Cracked Rib. Bada-Bing!

ESPN really has sunk to a New low.

    • I get that, not the point, or i wouldnt have posted in the first place. How about he is stubborn and wont wear a life jacket and instead of freezing in his old deer hunting garb a pair of new outerwear designed for ice fishing would be great and as a bonus add safety?
    • You were definitely against it.  BD not.   And, as the old joke goes, it is a matter of price.   If they can get jobs for 700 bucks a year subsidy per job, might well be worth doing.  On the other hand 200k per job or whatever it really is seems too expensive.     But if you are one of the purists, then oppose everything.    I'm not that doctrinaire. 
    • I thought it was worth mentioning that I;ve found great mounting boards and mounting ideas from checking the catalogs of some taxidermy supply page and catalogs. 
    • I get being concerned about the ones you love, that's aways a good practice, but it seems like no matter how well I try to educate my wife on ice safety and my precautions regarding it, she still thinks I'm going to die.  If they have $400+ to burn, so be it, but I've compromised by saying I'll wear a life jacket out the first time or two.  Seems like a more economical solution to me. 
    • I agree with Hawg and Sea Hage. This is a convection heater and heat rises through the top vents. At 15k BTU the area where you put the fan will reach 300+ deg. f. and deform the fan blades as they are made of plastic. Put the fan at the bottom as suggested. Your main objective is to get hot air circulation through the house. The floor will usually be cooler due to the holes but with the fan blowing at the bottom cold air is returned at the bottom of the heater through circulation. My house is same size as yours. I have a 9k BTU Dura Flame convection heater and tried several fan configurations. I did burn up the fan blades when installed as in you pic running at about 7k BTU. I than converted it to a forced air with air flow fan control using temperature controlled relays. The burner I posted earlier is from that heater where I increased the BTU to 12k. The temp in my house is very consistent floor to ceiling and operates same as my home furnace. May be a bit of overkill for what your looking for but really works well with great comfort at any outside temp and wind.   The bump  on the air duct has 3 four inch compute fans to maintain. Behind the white framed box I put a 4 speed auto fan for fast warm-up I turn off when warm. Runs at 12.5k BTU. The pipe duct going to the door I added this fall to heat my attached flip. Cold air return is opening below the heat chamber and at the auto fan.   When I am not in the house and want to keep it warm, I turn off the temp control relays and open the door to the original convection and turn the heat down.  
    • I have a Crossfire II 4-16x50 on my .308 elk rifle and I love it. Great scope, very clear and bright and Vortex quality. I have not had a single issue with it and the Crossfire is on the budget end of their glass. I've great reports from those with the higher end scopes. I wouldn't hesitate for a second. As far as which one to choose, I find the 50mm scope a little big and heavy. You'll likely have issues mounting to an AR due to its size. Mine had the benefit of the barrel taper allowing for the larger lens to fit. If I had a flat top like an AR it wouldn't fit as well. 
    • This is a post on the low flame issue that was brought up awhile back along with a question. As most said the low flame is normal and says so in the manual. I just picked one up, a used one. Hooked it all up and had very minimal flame. I have several of these units in rental houses so I am able to compare. The unit I just picked up is an abnormally low flame. I took a little square head bolt out of the black pipe that goes directly into the burner and blew it out. This was a mistake as at this point I can not get the burner to light. Ok now I need to get to the burner. I took apart the unit and took the burner out and blew it out real good then reassembled the unit and wa-la great flame and great heat, better then my newer units.   Now for the ? part of my post. I am having a 10degree drop in the temp before the unit starts back up. My other shacks are not much better but a little. Anyone have any experience with this issue?
    • usually 2 weeks to get stuff at st jo.  did brats3 weeks ago. buncha meat sticks this last week  
    • I would get side imaging. The C store has a Garmin echomap 73sv for $450 on Saturday as a doorbuster and $499 on sale.Regularly $999.   I have had 4 different Lowrance units but am 90% sure that I am going to replace my dead Elite 5 with a Garmin graph.Probably the Striker 7SV
