    Favre said earlier today in an ESPN interview that I just made up in my head, this:

    It would be an honor and a privilege to be a part of the ceremony - for the people of Greenbay. For me, it would disgust me to go back to that pitiful city. I told those Packer management jerks, that if they wanted me to be a part of the ceremony, they will have to hold it in Minneapolis. They haven't gotten back to me yet, I'm sure there is a lot of logistics they have to do to move the location of the ceremony. Oh, rats. I hope they know I need a private green room as I prep for my entrance. Also, Aaron Rodgers will need to be in Europe or something. That rotten job stealer ruined everything.

    I wouldn't doubt it, because you know that, if you hear " favre returning to Green Bay" , then that's all someone is going to talk about and not Mike. I also think that , he knows that the storm that was the ugly divorce, hasn't brewed over yet and he doesn't feel like returning at this time.

    Can we merge all of these Favre related topics into a thread entitled "Brett Favre: The Neverending Story?"

    In the interview that is referenced in the story, Harlan does state that it doesn't look like Favre would come, although to clarify, he says he believes the Hall Of Fame committee just hasn't heard back from Bus Cook.

    He also feels that Favre may think he would be facing a partially hostile crowd if he were to come back to Green Bay at this time, but Harlan says that Packer fans are very forgiving, and that he'd actually be met with a warm reception.

    He also says in the interview that Favre should now be considered the greatest Packer of all time.

    It seems to me Harlan was tooting his own horn a little. Saying what Wolf and Thompson has done is equal to what Lombardi did is a real stretch in my opinion.

    He will be boo'd no matter when he does come back. So come back now, get it over with and maybe wont be such an issue when they retire his #

    But if he did come back, he would take away from Holmgren..

    Did Brett come back for Winters???

    I know a lot of Packer fans say he will come back one day and have his number retired and all will be forgotten.

    Personally, I know his number will be retired one day, and fans will clap, but the majority of Packer fans just will never think of him the way they once did.

    He will certainly be a Packer legend...but he has destroyed his legacy in Green Bay. If he retired in 08 he was a god in Green Bay.

    I think Brett honestly is trying not to take away from Mike's moment

    Could be. Who knows. That guy doesn't know how to clearly and articulately state what he means ever anyway.
    He has his own language.....
    But he does like seeing his name on the tickers still. He loves being in the news.... isn't that silly after all these years?

    i haven't seen any evidence in the past few years that brett gives a damn, so i have to humbly disagree.
