EDEN PRAIRIE - The talk about the Vikings acquiring Brett Favre and the ensuing photo illustrations of the former Packers great donning a purple #4 jersey have begun to irritate 3rd string signal caller John David Booty.
"I'm tired of this crap!" Booty stated in an angry Louisiana drawl. "We've already got a #4 - it's me! I went to USC; I won a freakin' Rose Bowl. I am sick and tired of being disrespected like this!"
Booty wore #10 during his standout collegiate career, but that number is retired by the Vikings in honor of Hall of Fame QB Fran Tarkenton.
"When I got here last year, they said I couldn't wear my number (10) because some old guy I never heard of wore it and it was retired. I was like, 'fine, I'll take #4 then'. Now they are trying to take away that number because some other old guy wants it. They'll have to tear it off my back!"
The second-year QB seemed unconcerned when it was pointed out the Favre's addition would make him the team's 4th quarterback and likely odd-man-out.
"The guy they want is like 40, the other guy is named 'Sage' and the other is - well, I saw him play last year - I am not too worried."

Booty SHUT YOUR MOUTH!! Ever since you arrived in this town you think the world owes you something & that you're a HOF QB.....guess what son? YOU'RE NOT YOU SUCK!!! All you've done is run your mouth, have a horsesh%$t attitude & throw INT's & make constant mistakes!!! If you think you're so great then answer me something else....why aren't you starting?? BECAUSE YOU SUCK THAT'S WHY!! Ooooo we might be getting a legend at QB which is the final piece to make a Super Bowl push but all you can think about is YOURSELF YOU SELFISH SOB!!! & then you rip on one of our ALL-TIME GREATS (Tarkenton)? Are you kidding me? You're not even worthy to do his laundry if he asked you to! YOU'RE A COMPLETE JOKE & A TOTAL PRODUCT OF THE SYSTEM RUN AT USC, otherwise you wouldn't have even made it into the NFL. But no matter, you'll be washing cars in a couple of years because you don't serve ANY PURPOSE IN THIS LEAGUE!!! I REALLY WANT BRETT to sign with us & when he does hopefully you'll be the one to LEAVE!!! Get out of my town & off my team you selfish prick!!!
