    hate is a big word mate,
    montreal canadiens fans felt off about guy lafleur moving on to another team after god knows how many seasons and god knows how many stanley cups.
    im sure yankee fans would feel the same with respect to A rod and what not.
    its a sad situation and it really is blown up because it is the green bay packers and it is brett favre. im hoping it gets settled soon.

    Exactly, Ted's a ***edited** moron. Favre's one of the best QB's in the league and he doesn't accept him back.**edited** Ted. Go Favre! I hope you win the SB in another uniform!

    I want Brett to step up and make a public announcement. If he want's to play, fine go right ahead. Just be man enough to come out and say it.

    I agree with you. It is TT's team, he cna do whatever he wants. Nothing I can change. It's his decision ot make it. I don't like it but I have to live with it. I get that.

    I just don't get the Favre bashing. He gave you 16 years of blood and sweat. And now he's your enemy because he CHANGED HIS MIND. He still wants to play for the Packers, they don't want him. Why hate him. Jordan changed his mind, everyone in Chicago still loves him. Lombardi came back with the Redskins, does anyone even realize that?

    And I hate (unrelated to this above quote) how everyone disregards Favre's season last year. We were 13-3 and then Favre blew it. Do you realize hte amount of games were Favre put hte team on his back. SEATTLE F'N SEAHAWKS, 14-0 WITH MINS IN AND THEN FAVRE LED 6 STRAIGHT TD DRIVES. If your going to blame him for the Giants on one player, then give him credit for games too.

    I agree with you even though I didn't want Favre back. Hopefully people will calm down soon. Right now, they feel like they just got dumped by their girlfriend. I don't think Favre is betraying the Packers or that he's a liar. He just changed his mind. People do that sometimes.

    I don't care if they release him. I'd hate to see him go to the Vikings or Bears, but if that's what he wants to do, let him go there. When his agent says that Favre deserves an unconditional release, I think he may have a good point. Thompson may explore some trade options, but I'm guessing he will be eager to put this whole mess behind us quickly, and the easy way to do that would be by granting Favre his release, as requested.

    Why? Because Favre completely forced his hand? The Packers had to do this. If Favre comes back this year, AR is GONE. No way he's suiting up for the Packers in the future. What happens beyond next year? What? We don't have a QB then.

    I would trade him and not release him. I would piss him him off by trading him to a team like the Falcons or something. But, I would NOT, release him.

    Are you serious? So you throw away a chance at a Suberbowl Ring this year because you're afraid of losing a QB who has proven nothing? And in doing so, you reject one of the best QB's of all time? I can't believe how ******* stupid people are. BRETT FAVRE!!!!!!!!!

    I am from Ky and maybe I don't know anything, but I thought this was the only fan-owned team. Why can't something be done about this? I want Brett back as a Packer it's where he belongs! If enough of the fans(I don't know if they do) want him back, can't TT be coerced into bringing Brett back? Just a country girl's dream?

    So much going on in this thread and a lot of it is pretty ridiculous.

    Look I'm upset with all this and if I were Ted Thompson I would of went for it with Favre this year because the window is very small when it comes too Super Bowls. With that said I hardly believe Green Bay is giving up on 2008. I don't buy that for a second. They think they can win with Rodgers and I'm not doubting them.

    Eli Manning a year ago was the most hated person in New York period. Now he's a fan favorite. Remember that.

    I'm not saying the Packers are going too win the Super Bowl. I don't know but I think they'll make the playoffs. I thought that two months ago and none of this is going too change my mind. Once you're in the playoffs anything is possible. The last three Super Bowl champions played on that first weekend of the playoffs and didn't have a bye. Two of them won on the road 4 times in a row too win the Super Bowl.

    So I'm supposed to believe that 2008 is done over and I should plan for 2009 or 2010 instead. This is the NFL remember.

    As for Randy Moss debacle.

    I wanted Moss as well. I wanted him before the start of 07 and I wanted him when he was a free agent this past year.

    With that said if Favre retired because TT didn't run the team the way Favre wanted too, I just don't get it. Favre is not the GM. He's not the coach. He's a player. Players don't tell GM's how too run the organization. The team went 13-3 last year and their free agent signing was Frank Walker.

    You want too blame Ted Thompson for Favre wanting out then ok that's probably true but Ted Thompson is not the bad guy for wanting too build this team the way he's done it. So far it has worked and for Favre to want out because Thompson continues the same approach that got them as far as they did a year ago is just plain ridiculous on Favre's part.

    I don't buy that for a minute. If that's the case then I don't know what too think. I think he retired because his emotions were running high after the Giants game. He worked so hard all year more than ever and he still didn't reach the Super Bowl. That's why he retired. I'll take his word.

    People telling Favre to stick it or call him whatever you are. Come on now. It's obvious that the Packers don't want Favre to be their QB and that's why Favre wants his release. If Green Bay wanted Favre, he would play for the Packers. If Favre wants to keep playing then let him go elsewhere.

    Johnny Unitas as a Charger is laughing at anyone who thinks Favre playing elsewhere will tarnish his legacy.

    1. He said he would never want to wear another uniform
    2. He lied when he said it was all rumours
    3. He's putting the organization in a horrible situation by retiring and then unretiring
    4. He's demanding to be released

    He's tarnishing his legacy as a Packer in my eyes, putting himself first over the organization and being selfish. Also in the process putting Green Bay in a horrible situation.

    I support the organization 100% in this situation. No player is bigger than the Green Bay Packers itself. I thank him for everything he's done for the Packers in the past, but now he's jut being a douche.

    I Hope the door hits him in the *** on his way out.

    Bus Cook needs a punch in the face. Gosh golly gee, Ted, do you think you would just let Favre go all friendly like so that he can play for whatever team he wants? Pfffffttt... this is a business pal, and you know it because you have made your living off of it and other people's talents. Go walk off a cliff. I say we do a trade or nothing. There is no way we should release him.

    Are you serious? You're calling Favre selfish for wanting to play football? He wants to play for the Packers, but they don't want him, so he wants the chance to play for someone else. WTF don't you understand about this? Ted's a ******* moron for not wanting to win, simply put. On to a injury filled suckfest that is Rodgers.

    No I am calling him selfish for first retiring and then unretiring trying to force the team to adjust back to him after moving on without him.

    Btw, Ted Thompson has built a pretty damn good team and helped Brett Favre succeed last season, so don't question his will to win, and mind your language will you?

    yeah I've never heard of someone changing their mind before. Weird.....All this crap about moving on w/out him is a complete joke. Favre wasn't even required to come to minicaps before in years past so it shouldn't even matter he wasnt' there this year. It's a cop-out for Ted to say he wants to disrespect Favre.
