    That opens a whole new arguement. I`m sure I`m not alone in thinking retiring his number is too good for him. Sorry, just my opinion.

    Is a statue a bigger tribute than a retired number?

    Personally, I think there should be a statue of Harlan out by Lombardi and Lambeau, and up before another statue is cast of ANYBODY. I know it's already Harlan Plaza, but I think a statue is appropriate. If one thinks about the true founders and rejuvenators of the team, Harlan is just as important is the other two. Harlan unleashed the TWENTY YEAR run that we have had. He did so much in ensuring the fiscal solvency of the team. Without Harlan there would have been no Wolf, Holmgren, Favre and on and on. The two things that make a franchise float - talent and $$$ - has been guided by Harlan for two of the nine decades of the Packers existence. Without him one has to really doubt where the Packers would be right now. Green Bay may not be on the list of those places.

    Yes. There should be a statue of BF in a Viking uniform, flat on his back, with Clay Matthews driving his sorry carcass into the dirt. IMHO.

    I don't want the man himself in Green Bay or Wisconsin for that matter, why the heck would I want to see a statue of him?

    Isn't this a little premature? What if he decides to comeback?

    Just for the record, Curley Lambeau & Vince Lombardi were both dead when they were idolized in granite. Read into that what you'd like. :eek:

    Benedict Arnold has a boot statue, so maybe the Oneida tribe could put his arm on a slot machine.

    I would say yes even though retiring his number is also one of the highest honors he can receive. A statue is kind of symbolic to immortality. It will be there forever, every time a fan walks into or around Lambeau Field they will see it and be reminded of him. A statue goes much beyond what the player did on the field but it's about the person. Honors like that are for Lombardi, Starr, and Reggie White. Retiring a number is acknowledging and honoring what he did on the field but putting up a statue in the person's image is much more symbolic. You are honoring the person.

    I am not to sure you should. I like him,but,as someone else said it is better not to over do it. There are alot of players who could have that honor. I am talking about players from the 1960's.

    NO statue, and they should delay retiring his number until the cheers will outnumber the boos--about 40 years, I'd say.

    If Favre's steak house ever serves breakfast u can bet waffles will not be on the menu. Now the people in Orlando knows what we as Packer fans have gone through. Dwight Howard is the Favre of basketball.

    The part of Lambeau that sells ice cream should have a Brett Favre style cone. (waffle)
