Let's face it. Favre has changed his mind on whether or not he'll retire more times per week than I go without tweeting or using Facebook (usually zero, thank you very much).
Even Modano pondered retirement once the Stars announced they would not be offering him a new contract.
Favre wanted to retire after playing the 2008 season with the New York Jets, but resurfaced in 2009 after signing with the Minnesota Vikings.
Modano was rumored to be taking a position in the front office before he signed a one year deal with the Detroit Red Wings.
Most recently, Favre has denied rumors that he sent text messages to Vikings teammates announcing that he planned to retire.
Can you guys make up your mind already?
It must be tiring for Modano and Favre to frequently summon questions from the media about whether or not they'll play in 2010.
If they want to put the guesswork to rest, the best thing to do is decide to leave the game and mean it.
Have a press conference to announce your retirement, take questions, and that will be the end of it.
