    :lol: :lol: I think it was false allegations with little to no substance against the Vikes which turned out to be BS. Brought to you by your awesome GM, Ted Thompson.

    He's referring to the bogus charge that the Vikings were "Tampering" with Favre. Thompson should have just gave him his release when he asked for it if he was committed to Rogers. It would have avoided a whole lot of drama. Oh well.

    That drama was 2 sided! Favre(crybaby) could have played that out different instead stabbing upper managment with critisizing remarks.
    what ever it takes 2 to TANGLE!!!

    Re: The Official - The Refs Fricken Suck Thread

    When did Favre's remarks come out though? I still don't feel we know the whole story. All I know is, Green Bay was in a bad position. They have to see what they have in rogers this year, or its a wasted first rounder, they can't let Favre go because it hurts the Packer tradition. It was a tough decision, but I believe we have not nor will we ever find out what management was doing, I blame them for handling the situation so poorly. That doesn't excuse Brett's remarks mind you, but I think after being lied too so many times, there comes a point when a player who has a passion for and wants to play the game just has to say Cya.

    TT should have just given Brett his release? :eek: That would make the Packers like the Jets. ;) You don't just release a player who has any value. THAT would be foolish. Yes Chad Pennington isn't as good as Brett but Chad still had some value. But the Jets just released him (there is a chance that the Jets couldn't make a deal...) and now Chad is playing for a divisional rival that almost came back to haunt them!

    Re: The Official - The Refs Fricken Suck Thread

    So what's your point? Brett gave a lot to this franchise. I think in the grand scheme of things that no draft pick will ever amount to what Green Bay lost here. The bottom line is if they were indeed so set on Rogers, why did they let the Favre-straction go on for so long? I'm sorry I don't buy it. Yes, I'm a fan of Favre's, but I'm a Green Bay fan too, and frankly I'm not happy with how this all went down. It wasn't handled professionally if you ask me. That of course is My own opinion.

    Off topic. I'm going to split this thread. And throw the last few into the Favre thread.

    Is this going to go on all year with the Favre thing? I liked him too, but enough already.

    Also, its RODGERS not ROGERS.

    The tampering charges against the Vikings were legitimate concerns of the Packers. They werent cleared; the league just couldn't find conclusive evidence of the content of the conversations between Favre, Bevel and Childress. There were no recordings or written communications and none of the parties involved was willing to 'fess up to what they were really talking about with each other.
    So why else was Favre pushing to get his release to jump to Minnesota? Something was rotten in Denmark.

    Sure are a lot of homers here willing to believe anything the team says. Favre spent 16 seasons showing everyone how genuine he & Deanna were. Now after a few months the majority of Packer fans have done a 180. What good does Ari Fleischer provide this team on Sundays in the Fall? Nicely spun, TT.
