ESPN covered the Brett Favre story thoroughly in July
Here is my Sunday newspaper column, in which I look at how Brett Favre held the national sports news media hostage - ESPN in particular - during the five weeks from his first public "itch" until the Jets finally scratched it.
ESPN and Favre were accomplices in the nuttiness, which mostly has subsided now. The New York media will take it from here, thank you.
The column also includes an item on the new, expanded SportsCenter debuting Monday.
