    I know I'm new here too, but I think cheesey is really summing up the majority opinion among Packer fans.

    We love Brett, but now he's made his own bed and has to sleep in it.

    Stop your whining. It's people like you that instigate it. You trash and make fun of anyone who disagrees with you. You make snide comments and trash many peoples hero on here(Brett Favre). Now you want to cry to the mods because you started a fight and now you have a fight on your hands. Grow up kid. As for your contribution to this forum.....please show me where that happened. I haven't seen a good one as of yet. This forum is not a piece of trash. There is trash in the forum that makes people want to leave. Nice classy video you posted on here. Right back at you.

    As for you leaving. Lol, you think anyone really cares. You are not important ad definitely will not be missed. I'll use the words that you and many have used to describe Brett wanting his release. Dont let the door hit you on the way out.

    Cya

    you have the wrong site again. BrettFavre.com is more suited for you.

    Questioning Packone's contribution to the site is yet another thing you couldn't be more wrong on. there isn't a post beside your name that has been even close to right.

    A fight on his hands? more like a temporary skirmish. as we fight for the Green Bay Packers and you fight for Favre only. who do you think will live longer.

    way to make a great place terrible. cant wait for you second disappearance. you're worthless.

    I told PackOne not to respond to me anymore and i'll do the same. He responds to me, i have nothing to say to him. He gets the point now i think.

    As far as valid points that i ignore. I dont ignore them. I just dont believe Favre is the devil. He has stated over and over in interviews that he is at fault too. He just wants to play. Its unfair for the team to keep him in limbo. I'm not ignoring his wrong doing but there is wrong doing from everyone. The only one who has owned up to their wrong doing so far is Favre.

    As far as me going after people on here. I have gone after a few people who deserved it. I have not put you down to my knowledge cheesey and 99% of the people on here i have not either. PackOne, Trom and a couple others on here like to start stuff, put people down, antagonize, make their little comments and call you stupid because you dont think like them.

    Your Randy Moss comment. Favre said he would give up part of his salary to get the guy. Did you see the interview? Are you the one ignoring the facts right now? Or do you just think Favre is lying about that and everything else?

    Want me to post some facts? Why are people hiding behind that. I give plenty of facts. What the hell does that mean anyway? Exactly what have i said that is not true? Exactly what hard facts do they give ? C'mon cheesey.

    So it's o.k. to be o.k. with Favre for keeping the Packers in limbo far past a reasonable time frame but when the Packers won't just jump right up and grab him back that's unfair?

    I don't see how Favre has owned up to wrong doing when he says the only thing he is quilty of is retiring early. So Favre is right for going public and the orgnization is wrong for not getting baited into that?

    The whole interview was WRONG last night for taking place in the first place. It NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED.

    Reminded me of a kid that called the cops on his mom for spanking him.

    Hmmmmm,
    Here is what I got from that interview....
    Brett Favre looks out for what is best for himself, Ted Thompson looks out for what is best for the team. I don't know about you, but my boss doesn't have to tell me what he wants to do. He can listen to my opinions, but ultimately it is his decision.

    Why do you think we were in such tough shape when Sherman was around as GM and coach? He listened to Brett Favre and gave him what he wanted. Sherman wasn't tough on Favre and look at his numbers. McCarthy reigned him in and look at his improvement.

    Lets look at what Lord Favre wanted:
    Hire Marriucci as coach....Ummmm he was fired the 49ers and Lions for a reason.
    resign Rivera and Wahle. Rivera was at the end of the line and injury prone. Didn't he end up in Dallas for a few years and was injured quite frequently? Wahle broke the bank for a guard?
    Sign Randy MossMay have payed dividends at the beginning, but how would Donald Driver have felt. Greg Jennings wouldn't have developed as much as he has, and we wouldn't have drafted James Jones, for what have possibly could have been a one year rental.

    He asked Ted to resign one of the guards..

    A simple request and Ted said OKAY..

    And from all accounts THEY DIDNT EVEN TRY..1st lie to Brett from Ted

    Provide proof he wanted Mooch hired?

    I know of proof he wanted Steve to be interviewed..but not hired...He asked Ted to interview him and Ted said OKAY...Steve never got interview...Lie #2

    Your Moss argument is weak..
    Everyone seems to be missing the point

    He felt disrespected by Ted for being LIED to..



    Did he have the right to ask for Moss, the guards or Mooch?? Who knows?


    That truly is not the issue from what I can gather...


    Ted would tell Brett one thing in private, then in public Ted would say the complete opposite..

    THAT IS THE ISSUE

    LIED TO

    i would hate if my boss lied to me, wouldnt you?

    you can't call them lies. just because Ted said ok. He may have considered it and then thought that what was best for the organization was something different. like with Mooch... say he planned on bringing him in for an interview... then MM showed up and TT knew then he had the right man. Does he need to bring in Mooch just because he plays golf with Favre... hell no. See thats not a lie... TT may have had every intent to bring them in, but it just didn't happen.

    And i am the boss, and I lie to employee's all the time. They know what they need to know to keep them happy.

    and in each and every case it turns out it was the best scenario and Favre was wrong. so i dont see the problem here. Favre wanted Mooch here because he was friends with him. Same goes for both Olineman that were correctly released. Favre makes decisions on whats best for himself, not the Green Bay Packers. Which is understandable and fine... until you throw the organization under the bus because you don't get your way.

    You keep repeating the same things. You guys keep trying to force the mods hand over and over again, because of a difference in opinion. It's a damn game to you guys. Your game has grown stale man. The reason this board is going to crap is because you guys keep trying harder and harder to force the mods to get rid of anyone that disagrees with you.

    Look at this topic De-Real asks that you just not respond to him anymore, for the sake of the board, and immediately you guys bombard him with stuff to instigate hostility. You know if you don't do that, you will not anger him enough to do something to be able to point out to the mods as "grounds for suspension".

    You guys quote every time he calls you a name as some kind of centerpiece. Fact is I've been called a Douche, Dumb, A Bitch, an Idiot, told to F-Off and had threads started about me by you Trom, and Packnic. Don't dish stuff out, then cry when you get it returned. In fact I had Trom tell me HE CONTROLS EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS HERE. You take disageeing personal and swarm like flies to overtake anyone who doesn't walk your line.

    It's not playing the victim, it's calling a spade a spade. I don't have intentions to piss anyone off but after awhile you can't help but to fire a shot back. What have I done to you personally Packone? I've watched members run of this board. Not just the passionate ones like Pack66 and Pyle, but members like Bruce, who was a great member. Plenty of people here disagree with me but you don't see the squabbles with Porky or Pack93z, or Arrow. They understand this is a forum for average joes to state opinions.

    I've had some private discussions with other members, both past and present. I think we all know the routine by now. Some have chose to leave, some to just rarely post, and some to just ignore the antics, but the 1 thing we all agree on is this game you guys run.

    Just ignore everyone that doesn't agree with you, if you can't handle it. Sadly, I think that would ruin your fun.

    Brett is paid to be the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, not be the general manager, that is Ted Thompson's job. I really think your argument is weak, because you are only looking at one side of the story. I really think Brett is trying to make the Packers look bad, so that the fans will revolt and make Ted Thompson bring him back. I am not saying that both sides have not made mistakes, because they have.

    If you look at the other side of the spectrum...The Packers did try to sign one of the Olineman, but the price got too high and they decided it was best to let them go.

    Mariucci said he did not want to coach..Favre stated that himself, so why bother interviewing him. Could Ted have not got this information from the inside circles.

    Randy Moss wasn't about the few million dollars that Favre stated and a longer contract. Randy stated he felt he had a greater chance at winning in New England.

    You guys have to take off you Favre glasses and get a look at reality. Last time I checked they were the Green Bay Packers, not the Green Bay Favres.

    Oh my god...........

    Who went public first? Packers with lies. Favre followed with his interviews.

    You dont think Favre has paid the price enough for deciding to un-retire. Fine. I do. So what. We dont have to agree. Its cool.

    First of all mandating, yes mandating, "you need to resign my guards, at least one 'em," is not right and not having a clue what went down from there (even Brett doesn't know) is pure speculation.
    We had two million bucks, Rivera was gone, goodbye, and Wahle went for over TWICE that so how the hell do you know what Ted tried to do or didn't do.

    Why didn't Favre go to Sherman BEFORE this to get this done if he's such an estute Personnel man. Those two were poorly managed well before TT got there.

    Mooch? Again, until TT (if he even bothers) responds you don't know what happened after Brett made that request. It could have been that things escalated quickly and the offer had to go on the table before he had the chance to even think about Mooch. You just don't know. Brett said it was just a couple of days after his request that the deal was announced.

    Moss? What a joke. I can't believe that Favre even brought this up. He's pissed some reporter asked TT if Favre had played a role in trying to get Moss in and TT won't acknowledge that? C,mon. I have to think he probably felt that was a question Favre should answer. TT NEVER answers questions about who their dealing with or gives any details but now he's a lying *******.

    You got one side which means you've got one half of nothin'.

    Good post longtime. May I add


    Told Brett privately he was not wanted back.
    Then told the media he would be welcome back as a back-up.

    Lie #3

    Mandate? Where did Brett ever Mandate anything? You can spin things and twist words but the truth is Brett never MANDATED anything.

    I see your point..I really do..

    If by Ted saying ok, was just his way of saying I will think about it, then we have miscommunication..

    If Ted said ok as in I will do it Brett, and he didn't do it for what ever reason that is still okay...

    But IMO.....why not go to Brett and say hey, I didnt interview Mooch because MM came in and I was just floored and made him coach on the spot...

    Or we looked at the guard situation and just wasnt practical..

    Or Brett I didn't want to tell the media you were pushing hard for Moss, because I didn't think you wanted our private talks made public..

    I firmly believe after watching the interviews and hearing some stuff from the inside, if Ted would have been HONEST right from the start, even if that meant Brett I wont listen to you, this whole thing could have been avoided..
