Packergeeks cite a Pro Football Talk report about the possibility of the Packers having records for a phone given to Favre by the Packers, the intimation being that this is the evidence the Packers are using in their grievance against the Vikings.
If that is the case, and that is all the Packers have, I don't think the league will do much of anything. Even if those records show he called Brad Childress' number directly, how on Earth do the Packers prove what was talked about? Or even that Childress was the one on the line? Is it suspicious? Of course. But can you prove anything with it? Hardly.
The only way the Packers have a case is if the league finds, or they provide, emails between individuals in the Viking organization specifically discussing acquiring Favre. Remember, the 49ers were disiplined by the leage for tampering with Lance Briggs on the strength of email evidence.
So unless the Packers are working with the US Government, and have recordings of the phone calls that were reportedly made by Favre to Viking headquarters, they can't prove a thing absent an incriminating email or someone in the Viking organization pulling a Judas.
