While I am not familiar with Jay Glazer and I trust in your ability to spot a tool, I am not feeling ready to dismiss the accusations. We know Brett called this report something along the lines of "a bunch of B.S.". We also know that when breaking news originally came through concerning his retirement, he referred to that as "just a rumor." The head coach of the Lions isn't flat out denying it like Brett is. Also, remember that Favre wanted to be traded to the Vikings, not only because of them being considered competitive at the time, but also because it would give him a chance to compete against his former team. All these things combined really do not make the accusations all that unbelievable.
On a side note, if this is indeed true, it reminds me of professional wrestling. Not sure which cultural elitists out there want to fess up to watching the WWF back in the 80s - but - Favre is such an iconic hero in Wisconsin, to see him go to another team and then possibly assist the Lions with information to beat the Pack; It just feels like when one of your favorite wrestlers "turns bad" and you start to root against him.
