Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre has filed defamation lawsuits against multiple people, including television personality and fellow Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, who discussed Favre’s alleged role in the Mississippi welfare scandal. What are your thoughts?

I’m hoping Shannon Sharpe countersues for the millions Favre took.

Everybody said it. He knows he is guilty, but some people never want to be held accountable for their crimes. How evil can you be to steal from the poor, considering you made over $100 million during your career? Now I understand why Mississippi is the poorest state in America. They have been doing this for a long time.

Where is the lie? Isn’t that what happened?

Lochton Grant, Washington, D.C.

Brett must not know about a little thing called “discovery.” My bet is he’ll drop the lawsuit right before this begins to play out.

O. Wilkins, Washington, D.C.

Well, in Mississippi, he has the right complexion to get away with stealing and suing because it seems like they are all corrupt.
