    Well, Favre is not in a position to force the organization to change its mind. The organization has moved on and Favre should not expect it to all of a sudden turn 180 degrees and be forced into Favre's track.

    Changing your mind doesn't necessarily mean you can have it your way.

    You mean you'll root for Favre and not the Packers? Congratulations, you were never a Packer fan. Some "Packer" fans piss me off.

    Bart Starr is the greatest Packers QB of all time, if Favre ever wears purple or a bears jersey he won't even be on my list anymore.

    No, I was a huge Packer fan until I realized the organization is stupid enough to give Rodgers the QB job over Favre when they have a choice. Unreal....If Favre had stayed retired, I was still a huge fan of the Packers, but when he wants to play for the Packers and they're dumb enough to not want him back, it shows they're an org. not worth supporting. Favre > Rodgers.

    The Green Bay Packers are aware of the latest developments regarding Brett Favre.

    Brett earned and exercised the right to retire on his terms. We wanted him to return and welcomed him back on more than one occasion.

    p.s. Could we possibly heap any more pressure onto Rodgers? As if replacing Favre wasn't tough enough, this is downright ridiculous.

    So.... what's keeping you here? I say if you're done being a Packer fan, fine. Just start a new thread, explain your anger towards Packer management, and announce your resignation from Packerfandom and be off.

    If you wanna keep rooting for the Green & Gold, which would keep others from labeling you a bandwagoner, then try staying away from comments like the above.

    Packers even sent a coach down to Mississippi several times, obviously they saw something.

    God I can't wait till these guys are gone sniffing after Brett if he goes to another team.

    If he won't play for Packers then trade him. He has to be worth at least a 3rd rounder. Don't just release him.

    My thoughts exactly. We'll move on without Brett. Right now the right thing to do is be a PACKER fan. But man... this stings. Brett has pretty much BEEN football for me in my life.

    I feel like I'm in a zombie movie, and just when I thought I was safe (14-4 season, near SB trip), the frenzied masses come stumbling around the corner, thirsty for blood. Can you hear them? Listen carefully.

    "Teeeeeeedddddd ssssuuuuuuuuuuckkkkkssssss...."

    That's why it's all you know.


    And for everyone else. This is exactly what the 49ers did to Joe Montana.
    He was NOT welcomed back..when he wanted to come back and start.

    It sounded like MADNESS to everyone. You will replace a FOUR TIME
    Superbowl QB w/a left handed impatient hothead QB who hasn't won anything?

    So your anger is warranted and it's perfectly natural.
    Great athletes and great franchises part ways sometimes.
    It's the natural order of things. They agree to disagree.

    Put it to you this way. If the 49ers had STUCK w/Joe Montana(who was also around 38 at the time) and let Steve Young sit 2 more years...
    that would've set Steve Young back too much...

    The powers that be knew they HAD to change..even though Joe was clearly better than Steve at that point. It was too devisive to have them together
    anymore(teammates would clash)..and they went for the younger option.

    And you guys who call Ted Thompson a back stabber etc..
    If Ted was a backstabber, he would've NEVER welcomed Brett back when he first took the GM job. Ted Thompson worked with Brett for 3 years and they had success. WHen Brett "retired" Ted and McCarthy had to move on for the LONG TERM welfare of the packers.

    And for perspective. BILL WALSH the man who DRAFTED Joe Montana
    had to tell Joe Montana that he was no longer wanted in San Francisco
    because they were moving on w/Steve Young. If you think Thompson was a backstabber then Walsh was the ultimate.

    Good GMs see the writing on the wall and make the tough decisions
    maybe a year or two earlier than the athlete might like. That's where great players and organizations agree to disagree again.

    Brett did what was best for Brett. TT and MM made what they felt was was best LONG TERM for the packers.

    Just wish Favre farewell and wish the packers organization good luck too.
    It's NEVER gonna be pretty.
    It is what it is.

    Do they have to release him? I thought we owned his rights? Tell him we will reinstate him but wont play him. Send him over to work with the practice squad and set a tone to the rest of the team that its not cool to be selfish and two-faced.

    Good post. :agree:

    The long term future of the Packers lies with the most promising young QB in the league right now. AR. Brett may give us a chance this year (MAY) but AR may give us a chance for much longer. Farewell to Brett and welcome to Aaron.
