    I was never pro-Favre. YOu can check my old posts. I was mocking the man the whole way.

    Look at your join date, you didn't join until the Packers made the playoffs with Rodgers. Sure seems like a bandwagoner. You have no idea why I was absent from this particular forum the past few years.

    I joined after the wonderful 4-12 season :|

    Really? You mean you would brush it all under the rug? You DID think he was a quitter?

    No, I meant in terms of who I was siding with during the debacle. I contended that it was up to the franchise. I didn't know what was going on internally. I thought he should have been given a chance to compete for the job. I believe I said that. Not totally be pushed out, like it seemed he was. I don't think that makes me Pro or anti Favre. At that point, I just wanted what the franchise to do what was best. I just say I differentiate what he had done versus what was going on. That was when he did that awful Great interview on Fox News. I thought the way he was acting was like a *******, but still, never one forgot the stuff he did for the franchise.

    He didn't quit. And I was mocking him AFTER that interview all dealing with how he was acting. I didn't say it here, but I told other fans and on other forums that I won't think he is a ******* once everything is all said in done (meaning he retires completely for good). I said he needed a psychologist and that he was going to parachute down and land on Rodgers and take his job. That was the nature of my mocking :). Your friends can act like jackasses sometimes...doesn't mean you hate them. Doesn't mean you are against them. Also doesn't mean you have to be for what they are doing.

    "Not totally be pushed out, like it seemed he was."

    Funny. His agent was shopping him around the league within a month of his "retirement". He asked for his release during his "retirement". He was phoning his "friends" at the Vikings during his "retirement" while he was asking for his release. He repeated all of this while "retired" from the Jets, only difference is they gave him his release.

    Who forced who to act?

    personally felt that the Packer should have put language into the trade deal that kept the Jets from releasing him as well from trading him, thought that was backhanded as all get out on the Jets part. Glad we kicked their asses this season

    As far as I'm concerned, if that miserable traitor wants to have his number retired, he should wait until the Vikings do it!

    It will eventually happen, and it should happen. He was a great Packer and helped them win a SB. My own extreme distaste for him will subside at some point.

    Wasnt calling you in particular out but I guess if you took offense there must be some truth to it LOL

    You left when favre went to NYJ and joined back on when the packers are in the playoffs this year. I never understood how anyone could cheer for the Packers and the next year cheer for the Vikings.

    sadly many "Packer" fans were mostly Favre fans and jumped ship with him (thus why the Jets got put on Milwaukee CBS stations), then went with to MN...

    Dude it is a forum for discussion re: all things Packers and if you think Brett Favre and his decisions and his current decisions have nothing to do with this organization and more so with the fan base you are just plain wrong and just don't get it. Nothing to do with him being our collective ex...just he is a great player who made all kinds of selfish decisions that have put the organization in a really tough spot re: how to celebrate his incredible but selfish career with the Pack.

    Guys - I think I got teh best thing for it. We retire Favre's number so we can get it done with, then hire somone to remove all traces of it at Lambeau field, and mark it as vandalism. And then have the Packers echleon say its too costly to replace. THen tell all future generations we got rid of the number since a man that wore it was a traitor.

    Sorry man you sound like he is your ex:) and cant stand when he is criticized for his selfish behaviors. Bottom line he wanted Packer organization to lose, made arrangements to find his way to their biggest rivals(at the time) and as of about 8 weeks ago was telling Julius Peppers to beat those Packers when he didn't realize mics were picking up the conversation...I loved his career in GB and it would have continued and maybe had a different ending if he wasn't such a DIVA who had to have the Packer organization revolve around him rather then being part of the organization like a certain SB winning MVP Packer QB has become and always has been and probably always will be...thank God.

    Did you actually hear him say that to Peppers? I thought it was just something Peppers repeated in an interview in the press...though I don't doubt Favre said it.

    And if Glazer's story about him offering Detroit intel on the Packers' playbook is true, I don't know what more he'd have to do to convince Packer fans that he doesn't have their happiness in mind.

    I'm guilty of this too, despite my screen name. (And if I had a $1.oo every time someone brought up the irony of my screen name and discussing Brett Favre, well, I'd have $3 that I know of!)

    Anywho:
    Why do we keep on discussing Brett Favre and the Packers?
    Or BF at all?
    Everything from him doing a one day contract to how he's going to retire as a Packer?
    Shouldn't we just wait and see what happens?
    (And whatever happens, happens. It will just be the way it goes.)

    I did bring up the idea of having a separate Brett Favre section over in the feedback part and LTF brought it up here.
    I think if it can be done, it's what we need since BF is no longer a Packer.

    I did not hear it, heard it from a friend who said Favre said it after the Bears game at U of MN when shaking hands with him...

    Unbelievable.

    Aaron Rodgers just helped the Pack win the Super Bowl and we have a 7 page Favre thread.

    Amazing.

    Simply amazing.

    If Rodgers takes us to the promised land one more time, his number better be retired before #4, when the time comes, along with #21, 52, 90, 85.......

    If ya all do create a separate BF forum, it can be called "Unofficial Brett Favre".

    Thats how I feel about Favre.
