    this post is a prime example of how the packers nation is split ... i in no way am dissing anyone in this post or that reads this post ... packer faithfull ,, can we put this one to rest ,, we do have a long season ahead ... whats done is done ... Brett has shut his mouth and now is back to winning games ,,, i think we the nation should follow his lead ... we need to stand together again ...

    Outside my post? I am probably one of the cleanest posters who post on any site, I know there are tons more that give respect to others as well and for that I am thankful.

    I am very lucky thank you very much that I had parents that raised me with values and morals, dont know what the hec smarmy means but whatever!!

    I dont care what article you are posting about you can do it with class. Packone, we have always had our disagreements and we got through them. But if you are going to take sides with people that swear and say not so nice things then thats your business.

    LIKE OH MY GAWD!!! I try to respect people and their feelings thats a good thing and maybe more should try it, you know it makes the world a better place.

    We all know that you are nice Heather. You need to realize that this is a football forum. People are gong to swear and say not nice things all the time.

    Nothing, is going to change that. That's sports, everywhere.

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    how come when someone dogs Brett we see this

    "we were NOT there to here the full conversation."

    but when it concerns TT or MM they have to be lying?

    ** this is not me making an attempt to say TT or MM is wrong or RIGHT..

    Just an observation I have seen since all this started and EVERY board I visit/post at...

    I find it very interesting it is done like that ***

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    I firmly believe this will be Tightwad Ted's last or second to last season in the nfl as a GM. A.J. Hawk, Harrell and Jordy Nelson....... Talk about a very average linebacker getting top 5 pick money, an injury prone DT who is approaching bust status(in a bad way) and an unnecesary pick at receiver(strongest part of our team) while we have major questions at O-line, zero corner depth, and need safety help. The added value as a 5th receiver that nelson will bring us OVER Koren Robinson will not be seen....ever

    Throw in the Favre fiasco and the way this team is going to struggle to hit .500 every year and TT's days are #ered

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    Thats easy because MM and TT won't say what actually happened and when they try they get to be proven liars look at the tampering charges with the team issued cell phone. I for one like hearing from Brett because we are atleast getting some idea of what happened (could be lies, but this is all we hear about).
    I still stand by my belief that TT wanted Brett gone from day 1 so he could say this was his team not Brett's team. thats just my opinion

    and dammit the Pack have one more win against someone i said they would lose to but then again the Falcons could be tough against us same with panthers with their running games so i will stand with my 4-12 prediction. We need to clean up our o-line and d-lines and stop with the penalties for us to be considered a playoff team, and watch out for the hated Bears their defense looks to be back and they have a running game.

    with that said GO Pack you better win in Detroit

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    1st off I hate the fact Brett is not a Packer and I do not like how it was handled by either side and wish he was still here...

    With that said...

    Show me a quote where the PACKERS admitted it was a team cell phone?....

    I can show you a quote where TT admitted it WASN'T..You can't put blame on the team when a over zealous reporter got his panties in a bunch and reports a lie..

    Could the team came out right away and said no it wasn't ours? Sure could have but maybe since it was still under investigation from the NFL they were told not to say a word..Or maybe they just wanted the bad pub to get to Brett some more..

    I have not seen ANYTHING other then the famous time line from TT come out from the Packers..

    So not to sure what lies YOU are talking about

    This is what boggles my mind to be honest..There are people that say the team lied..Really? they haven't said a word or made a statement where they back tracked, or flip flopped on ANY stance they have taken.

    So please show me so I can see what others are seeing.

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    How about Mark Murphy & Mike McCarthy holding press conferences announcing the welcome mat being rolled out for Favre? Then later that night they lock him out of the team's facilities? That's just for starters, shall I continue?

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    He wanted back, so they said come on up Brett you are more then welcome to come up to Gb and get your physical and such..

    Can you show me how the 2 MM's said we will welcome you into the locker room?
    He WAS not on the TEAM at that time..It HAPPENS to EVERY player when they are not on the roster.

    Was it mean, nasty, ugly, disrespectful, degrading, STUPID? You bet your a@2 it was..But it is a rule that if a player is not on the team he is not allowed in locker room unless escorted by someone on the roster or with in the team ( that is what I heard on WSSP )

    But yes continue with the proof how they lie..

    I am TRULY interested

    Again I am not trying to be an a@2 here..

    but things that are "implied" should not be held against the team..I am talking about actual quotes they lied about..

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    Roger Goodell reinstated Favre on Sunday, Aug. 3, 2008. It wasn't official until noon the following day. Whoop-de-doo. Locking him out of team facilities, on Family Night, after the entire Nation heard he was being brought into GB to compete for a starting job, was classless. It was a slight of hand, smoke & mirrors job by TT & his newly hired publicist, Ari Fleischer. They coerced him to return to GB only to encounter a scenario they knew he wouldn't be able to accept.

    TT & MM insisted Rodgers was, without question, the new QB for GB. They back-tracked in order to carry out this new plan devised behind closed doors by TT & Fleischer. They were the ones who waffled & stooped to Favre's immaturity level.

    After MM's 5-hour meeting with Favre Monday night Aug. 4, 2008, the next day the team announced that Favre didn't want to play in GB any longer. They painted him out to be unstable & unable to let go of the past therefore he didn't have the right mindset to play for GB any longer.

    Actually they convinced him that his rift with TT was too much to overcome & would prevent him from playing football for GB "in the right mindset."

    What Favre claims he said was he COULDN'T play for GB any more because of the hostile environment TT & MM had created for him.

    The devious, deceitful & manipulative tactics used by TT & MM during the last days of Favre were the blackest mark on the team since Hornung's suspension.

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    I appreciate your effort..But I am just seeing your opinion on the entire thing.

    I never heard TT or Mm say he will be competeting for the starting job..In fact wasn't it from day one TT said..He can come back but his roll is going to be different, never heard any different...

    Again I don't like they did that to him he shouldnt have had to compete for it...

    but I still see no lies coming from TT or MM

    The 5 hour metting....MM never said what went on in the meeting, so how can he lie about it?


    I still do not see any lies that they told..

    I see opinions ( including mine) wher ethey MIGHT have lied, but no real proof they did

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    I think this whole Favre thing is really bad. We heard from someone--not through the grapevine but a very reliable source in Mississippi that TT wanted Brett gone for the past three years. When Brett said he didn't feel welcome any more, I can understand his feelings.

    When I was teaching, the principal decided he didn't want me there any more, and since they couldn't find anything legitimate to get me fired, they made life he-double toothpicks- for me. So, I can see where Brett is coming from.

    I still am a Packer fan and always will be one, but I always was and always will be a Brett fan.

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    Favre himself said TT begged him to come back in 05, so the reliable MS source is not so reliable carol.

    Could it be as simple as Ted tiring of the back and forth wishy washy crap this team has been getting from someone who constantly proclaims his love for the game? Not being sure he wants to "put in the work" anymore?

    Bottom line, he's gone and he ain't never coming back people. Get over it! Watch the Green Bay Packers play football or the New York Jets, or the Baltimore Ravens. But little ol' Brett done left the building!

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    Well what about Murphy sitting on MNF saying Brett will be in an open competition for the starting qb job? Or the one that made me laugh the hardest is how the Packers Failed Brett on his physical gimmie a break the guy has never missed a game but yet less than a week later he passes a physical for the Jets.

    As far as TT and saying there was no cell phone was after he found out if he did give a team issused cell phone it would go against the cap. Thats why he looked like an idiot when asked that question (then again he always looks lost). TT filed bogus charges which should have been punished for. Or did he do something illegal and have Bretts phone tapped? you make the call TT is a snake and will be run out of town within 2 years.
    Now we are stuck with a china doll at qb and we have to hope we win a few games this year.

    Re: Favre: Thompson wanted my a$$ out of the door.

    how can we get over it when wisconsin won't lol. Hell the cbs tv stations begged the nfl to get the jets games.
    Sommers called CBS the morning after the trade to let the network know that WISC wanted as many Jets games as possible "and by the end of the day every (CBS affiliate) from Wisconsin had called."

    So you may think people are backing Rodgers their still is alot thats not.

    heres a video
