    Maybe not this year, but I am willing to bet that last year there really was that feeling

    I admit I was livid when this whole fiasco first went down,.. thinking "What is TT THINKING??"
    I believed what BF was spouting to the media,...heck I even joined the "Bring Brett Back" campaign! :blush:
    (I wonder where those 2 brothers now stand?? Are they still Packer fans or are they BF fans)

    Now after it was all said and done,..I'm embarrassed to see how I supported Brett, and finally saw him for what he really is. Very selfish, very egotistical!

    As far as who's the winner,..... I go by how things affect the team,.. . Who's holding teams hostages with its all me attitude , or who is trying to help a team win. You decide.

    Favre won. After 2 1/2 years Packer fans can't stop from talking about him.

    thats a pretty weak argument...lets see, everyone attached to NFL coverage talks about Favre, he was only the packers QB for a decade and a half, not to mention 2 time superbowl player who had a pill addiction, has mutliple records, cheated on his wife, lied to thousands of people, switched teams in an ugly and hate-filled way, obvioulsy does not like his current head coach and is having the worst season of his career.

    ...who wouldnt be talking about that?

    Favre has thrown his legacy in the toilet (for now)...it will be years until the damage is forgiven (but never forrgotten).

    he is a steaming pile.

    TT won, Green Bay won, Packers Fans won..Favre continues to tarnish what could have been a well respected legacy. Now, he's a joke and the entire NFL knows it.

    Of course we are gonna talk about a guy who played for us for a gazillion years, won a SB with GB, and then threw everything down the toilet for a chance at a more personal glory. It's a freaking Greek Tragedy. It's intriguing to watch.

    Farve is a 50 car pileup on the NFL superhighway.

    Just as I was reading your response the co-host on "Around the League Live" is talking about "a big week of players facing their old teams...obviously Brett Favre we talked about at nauseum.. I want to through a couple of other guys at you.."

    50 car pileup on the NFL superhighway,.. .and talked about Brett Favre at nauseum pretty much sums it up!!!

    I beg to differ,...his legacy started to crack around his 2nd or 3rd "unretirement"

    btw...when is the Jenn investigation going to conclude!?!?

    Only way Brett can win is win a SB, Vikings did what Brett wanted (high priced free agents, block buster trades) etc....And what did he get?

    I didn't read that in dollars and sense! lol Well I'm not a wrangler wearer, I don't shop at Sears...just don't think of Favre as a "brand"

    At first read, I thought you were talking about Legacy. oops

    That was a pretty good read... until I got to this part:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "It's always all about Favre - it has to be. And now the entire organization is reaping what they've sewn - we saw the start of it this summer when Adrian Peterson didn't show for mini-camp, reportedly disgruntled that his quarterback could sit out the entire offseason, including training camp (not to mention get a substantial raise) while his teammates were in Minnesota working as a team.

    Although even that storyline is a bit false, as the Vikings had some 30 veterans miss parts of their offseason program."
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I dislike Favre a great deal, but when a writer resorts to sensationalistic "journalsim" like that, they lose all credibility; and because of it, the entire article is now suspect. And yes, I suppose techincally it's true; it was reported that Peterson didn't show because he was disgruntled that Favre didn't show, but it was wrongly reported, which means it should never have been mentioned.

    There's plenty to dislike about Favre without BS like that.

    I don't see the win/loss as being mutually exclusive.

    TT came out better - obviously having a better QB take over.

    BF has lost based on hi destroyed legacy. He will end his career having lost most Packer fans and Viking fans. He is seen now by most as having played too long, a pathetic shadow of a once excellent player.

    I agree,.. I think your saying that its not a win/win, or a lose/lose situation,..exclusively. Not a winner takes all type thing, but I see the balance of thought there.
    Agree totally on how TT came out better, and BF lost as now being known as a pathetic shadow.
    So TT WINS!!! lol!!!

    Like I said, TT won.

    Who was right? Both sides had right points.

    But who WON, unless this season goes haywire, TT won.
