For immediate release, August 4, 2008.

Brett Favre, future NFL hall of famer, and once-again Green Bay quarterback, returned to Green Bay late Sunday afternoon to continue his career under center. The Bombers can only assume recent headlines mean he will not be joining the Milwaukee Bombers. Perhaps the lifetime supply of meat pies was not enough to take center stage and play Australian football in Wisconsin with the Milwaukee Bombers. The Bombers are part of the United States Australian Football League.

"It was certainly a long shot,” said Australian native and Director of Personal for the Bombers Julie Upton. She continued, “"Brett would slot into our side as our starting center-half-forward, considered the toughest position to play in Aussie rules. While we are disappointed of his decision, the door remains open, indefinitely." Current center-half-forward Paul O'Conner declined comment. 

The Milwaukee Bombers ( are a 501(c) not-for-profit, member of the United States Australian Football League and members of the Mid American Australian Football League. The United States Australian Football League, founded in 1997, is an amateur, grassroots sports organization dedicated to the development of Australian football in the United States. The USAFL, which comprises more than 40 member clubs, promotes participation by emphasizing awareness and a sense of community within its member clubs, by setting standards by which member clubs agree to abide and by fostering youth programs across the United States.
