Brett Favre’s retirement lore is becoming almost as popular as his on-the-field heroics. On Thursday, the Packers’ official Web site briefly reported he was retiring, but the page under the breaking news section was live for only a few minutes. “There’s nothing to it,” Packers spokesman Jeff Blumb told The Associated Press. “People who handle our Web site had set up a dummy page in the event he was to retire. They were asked to take down that page.”
This is an obviously a pretty big mistake to have happen on a teams official website, but at the same time, it’s simply a human error, but with this day and age where sites are searching for news 24/7, it’s an error that a team like the Pack simply cannot make. I wonder how Favre reacted to the news of his walking away?
