Trouble hasn't slowed down for NFL in 2015 (The Associated Press) Courtesy of
Commissioner Roger Goodell declared at the Super Bowl that the NFL made ''enormous progress'' on social issues after last year's incessant barrage of disturbing developments, led by the Ray Rice domestic violence and Adrian Peterson child abuse crises. Also enmeshed in the headlines are Johnny Manziel checking himself into a treatment program and the murder trial of Aaron Hernandez getting under way. ''It's a discouraging start to the new year,'' said Richard Lapchick, director of the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida. ''But my hope is it's an anomaly for 2015.'' That will hinge on whether discipline and dishonor - ''the players aren't going to want to be mentioned in the same story as Ray Rice or Adrian Peterson'' - serve as deterrents to further transgressions, he said.

Favre returning to Green Bay for jersey retirement (AFP) Courtesy of
Brett Favre, the National Football League's all-time passing leader, said Monday he will return to Green Bay later this year to have his number four jersey retired by the Packers. The 45-year-old, a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player who spent 16 of his 20 NFL seasons with the Packers, made the announcement on his website. "I'm pleased to announce that I will be returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin, in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of my jersey," Favre said. Yahoo! Mon, Feb 09
Brett Favre announces he'll return to Lambeau Field for number retirement (Shutdown Corner) Courtesy of
It was time for Brett Favre to come back to Lambeau Field to be honored by the Green Bay Packers. On his official site , Favre officially announced what everyone has assumed for a while: 2015 will be the year. He'll come back for his induction into the Packers Hall of Fame, and also so the team can retire his No. 4. which is long overdue. Here's what Favre said on his site: "It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers. Now to have my name placed among others such as Starr, Hornung, Kramer, Taylor, Lambeau, Nitschke, Lombardi, Davis, White and Hutson is a special honor that I share with all of my teammates and coaches, and that would not have been possible but for the foresight of Ron Wolf, the greatest GM In the history of the NFL. "I'm truly looking forward to celebrating and sharing this special moment with all of the great fans of the Green Bay Packers. " The reunion has been put off for a while, because as you may remember, the Packers and Favre didn't have a very clean break. Favre wanted to come back a few months after retiring, the Packers had already committed to Aaron Rodgers (that turned out OK) and Favre ended up with the Minnesota Vikings after a year with the New York Jets. The Favre-Packers relationship was a bit rocky, which was unfortunate considering Favre was the centerpiece of reviving a franchise that was absolutely terrible for a couple decades before he arrived in 1992. The only known appearance Favre has made in Green Bay since retiring in 2010 was at a fundraiser at his steakhouse before a Packers "Monday Night Football" game last December. Although his steakhouse is in the shadow of Lambeau Field, he didn't go to the stadium. Favre will make what should be a very memorable appearance at Lambeau Field in 2015. Enough time has passed that any hard feelings should be forgotten. The Packers fans can salute one of the greatest players in the storied franchise's history.

Vikings great Alan Page plans life after state Supreme Court (The Associated Press) Courtesy of
When Alan Page's Hall of Fame football career ended, he charged into his new legal career with the tenacity that made him a feared member of the Minnesota Vikings' Purple People Eaters, eventually becoming the first black member of the Minnesota Supreme Court. ''I may have to learn how to do this, but there might even be some down time along the way,'' said Page, one of only two NFL defensive players ever voted league MVP. In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press at his office near the Minnesota Capitol, Page reflected on his legal career, the current state of the NFL and his upbringing. Yahoo! Sat, Feb 07
Judge to consider Peterson's suspension from NFL (AFP) Courtesy of
Adrian Peterson said he thought he received a fair hearing from a US federal judge in Minnesota who agreed to consider a lawsuit challenging his suspension from the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings running back was suspended indefinitely -- and at least through April 15 -- after pleading no contest in November to a misdemeanor charge for whipping his son with a tree branch. Peterson and his wife, Ashley, were in the courtroom in Minneapolis, where US District Judge David Doty said he would take the matter under advisement. The 29-year-old player hadn't been seen publicly in Minnesota since September, before he was indicted in Texas in the whipping which left his four-year-old son who lives with his mother in Minnesota but was visiting Texas with bruises and cuts days later.
