    I was listening to a Millwalkee Sport Radio show they said a rumor going around is that A Statue could be built?

    Could there be any truth to this. Would you want one.

    I would enjoy putting griffi all over it.

    I think icons like Lambeau and Lombardi deserve that. His # should go up, nothing else.

    I would say yes, but I think he lost Statue Respect after the whole "Vikings and Jets phase". 2 of my least favorite teams if you ask me.[​IMG]

    The next statue should be for the Minister of Defense.
    Then Donald.
    Then Rodgers.

    As I have never been to Wisconsin, let alone the stadium I do not know who has statues and who doesn't (besides Lombardi ofocourse.) but I would make a list of something like:

    Don Hutson

    Bart Starr

    (in the future) Aaron Rodgers*

    As long as it doesn't talk or throw ill-timed interceptions, then sure, why not? I think Don and Bart should get a statue first though. Hutson, not Majkowski, BTW.

    Is Favres statue wearing open fly jeans and holding a cell phone?

    Ok ok I'll be serious... Is he passing the ball in the statue or is he trying to make a tackle from the INT he just threw?

    I think a statue of him would be asking for trouble. But I'm one of those people who normally favors statues of only people who have passed, with a few exceptions.

    The only two statues at Lambeau Field are those of Curly and Vince. They were placed there when the Atrium was added under the last major renovation. Bob Harlan wanted them in front of the Atrium.

    The Bart Starr statue is technically not a part of the Lambeau Field Stadium site. It is across the street in the Resch Center Courtyard. There's one of him in the Packer Hall of Fame.

    A big NO to a statue at Lambeau of that Viking QB. That would be disgraceful to the green & gold, IMO.

    No. He was a great QB & made things happen,even if they were for the other team at times. You make a statue of Favre then you need one for All the other Packer greats. We have 2 statues & that should be plenty. Put him in the Legendary walk of Fame w/the others

    I wonder who would be the unlucky one that would have to clean the graffiti off of it every day?

    Curly and Vince only. adding anyone else right now cheapens the honor. Player statues have a place inside the hof.

    They can retire his number and put him on the ring of fame around lambeau but they should never, ever make a statue of that asshat!

    The Bart Starr statue was either taken out or is supposed to be taken out of Resch stadium as he paid a HUGE amount of money for that honor. I could see Rodgers getting one a few yrs after retirement. Since statues cost SO much I believe the city of Green Bay should have a Green Bay Packer walk of fame in front of Lambeau Field. The first 3 should be Curly,Vince & Harlan

    Not right now, it's not the right time. There is too much tension still, maybe in 20 years or so when things die down but I'm not sure he deserves the honor. Having a statue put in Lambeau field is one of the highest honors, I'm not so sure even 20 years down the road that it would fit.

    I don't think a statue will ever be appropriate after what happened at the end of his career. I think retiring his number is honor enough.
