    This is something I have kept for ages...Believe Brett when he speak?

    Sometimes he misremembers what he said just a week prior..Or maybe his was really lying?

    I dont know the answer but these quotes show 100% he says opposite things

    See why flatlander said what he did,...Brett has a history of telling different stories :)

    There's no greater topic in Packer Nation (other than the usual religion/politics) that can get Packer fans arguing amongst themselves quite like the Favre. I think things have been okay so far. Sure the conversations might get lively but at this point it appears most of us have said our peace and are now just having fun with the local zealot... :)

    Just to be clear, and concise, is anyone else here flatout just tired of hearing, reading about Farve?

    Slow news cycle, talking about the defector helps pass the time until training camp starts. :)

    Then why open it up?

    You have that right, but it appears more than a handful still want to discuss him

    To a degree ... I wish I didn't feel the way I do. I mean that. Favre is to us, what Payton was to the Bears, Montana was to the 49ers, LT was to the Giants, etc. But, seriously ... when he threw 6 picks vs. the Rams, I had a feeling it was the beginning of the end. Sure enough, game and season-ending interceptions ... I'd argue that he's known as much for that, as he is for all the good stuff. Not that he tried to throw picks on purpose, but ... it happened. Then toss in all the following incidents, etc.

    As for all the Favre stuff on these message boards ... the reason it never seems to die out, is because we all took a very firm and passionate side on the whole damn thing and, well ... it just is what it is.

    Essentially, I only want to start or I want a trade

    To me that is demanding

    I found this funny

    http://www.officialbrettfavre.com/bio/

    Few quotes and few things Brett was not honest

    If the Packer retirement is not really "lying" then for sure the Jets retirement is..As he stated to family and friends, this time it is for real

    Well I've mostly not opened it up... but so often I come back to this site, and damn, this is still at the top.
    So yes, a handful or more still want to discuss it.
    I don't have time or energy to waste on this guy.... that's why I just read a few in here... what I personally would like to know (without having to spend time page after page) is to know if I am alone: simply sick and tired of the guy at this point in time. I have been sick of him since the 2008 drama.....

    Guy has 3 years til he's eligible for Canton, and it would be ideal for us to ice him for 2 years, IMO.
    Anyone with me?

    The PACKERS are not his team anymore... yet he still seems to love to (and get away with it) hijack this team.

    The time you spent typing that out..You could have seen how many are tired of this talk

    But it goes on just like always...It gets heated..

    But in general I think people will forgive once he walks onto the field again

    BTW another mis truth?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3900850

    That was 2-13-2009 retirement from the J-E-T-S

    Believe me he said....And people wonder why sometimes it is hard to trust his statements?

    Okay, so what if he shows up at Mike McCarthy's charity golf event next spring?

    You already accused him of lying when he said the other day the he was over it all. In light of that comment, what good is an apology?

    Of course it was a demand, however, it was NOT a demand to be the starter in Green Bay because he said OR I want a trade. If you knew that you could immediately be named the starter on half of the teams in the NFL, would you not take the same position, or would you be content to be a backup? I'm betting on the former.

    There are some who think he came back and specifically demanded to have his starting job back IN GREEN BAY and that's simply not true. The first thing he did was to ask to be released or traded.

    Is it not reasonable to conclude that had Ted gotten serious about trading him ASAP then the bulk of the messiness could have been avoided? That would be the one thing I would hope he would do differently if he could do it over.

    What I`m tired of, is somebody clearly not listening or respecting other peoples right to feel the way they do. It`s like having a Jehovah Witness knock on your door and try to convert you. It`s irritating. I respect their beliefs, I JUST don`t share them. If the Packers retire Favres number that's fine, will I ever buy into it ?, No. Will I ever buy Favre merchandise ?, NO. As I don`t see myself attending the game they do it at, I don`t give a rats ***, because I wont be there to loudly boo the SOB, so in the big picture of things its not going to change my life one iota.
    I`m just "fed up" as we say here, with some members of the forum, BANGING ON trying to change my mind.
    The same people who criticise others for quoting things they REALLY don't know were said, and do the same feckin thing.
    And pick me up on my spelling because WE BRITS spell it that way, and its the proper way !!! :tup:

    That's a start

    You take that "fanboi" thing to a whole new level, especially with selective interpretations like this.

    I didn't say Favre lied when he made his latest statement. I said he's a known liar and this statement, by itself, isn't enough for many fans to trust him. I then spelled out an example or two on what he could do to further prove his sincerity.

    Beware you don`t fall off that moral High horse. And stop preaching. There are some on here that don`t care, myself particularly. I don't even want to know about Favre. I don`t spend all of my days sticking pins in an effigy of the man, but neither YOU or ANYBODY else is going to change my opinion, so I`d appreciate it if you and your like would stop trying. There`s a good chap !

    20+ posts later on the same topic and it's pretty clear what a crock this was. Like a Favre retirement.

    Tell me about it.

    Most folks- myself included- are annoyed by mayo's quibbling nature and yet many keep egging him on...

    Jesus, Bill, learn to read: if you haven't been quibbling, then those comments probably weren't addressed to you, were they?

    I don't particularly care either, except I quit stirring the pot long ago. You should think about that. Perhaps, after several pages of ChiTown, FlatLander, and Bill "mayo baiting," we can we all agree to disagree and STFU?

    This topic is old. Lock it, LTF.
