Brett Favre is the girl you dated in high school who always had to be told how pretty she was. So far, the Vikings continue to oblige her.

Each Brett Favre comeback tour so far has featured a different impetus. This time around, the Vikings don't care what that is -- they just want Brett back in the huddle.

NCAA athletes should shoulder the blame when they take improper benefits from agents.

There is no strict policing of agents. Agents' actions can get players and their collegiate teams in real trouble, but until the NFL and/or NFLPA takes a tip from the NCAA and elects to discipline those in their control -- the rogue agents -- the problem will continue to spiral out of control. It will take someone much more intelligent than I to come up with the legal mumbo-jumbo to get this thing fixed correctly. But, doesn't it make sense for agents to suffer similar consequences as the athletes should they be found involved in these cases?

NCAA athletes earn millions of dollars for their universities, coaches and administrators but receive very little in return for their performance. That must change.

Colleges and agents need to be held accountable for improper dealings with NCAA athletes, and a new system needs to be established that does not punish innocent bystanders for the actions of past players.
