    Real class response there Trom.

    WOW, I GUESS SOME ON THIS FORUM ARE ALLOWED TO GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING.

    So because I don't agree with TT holding BF hostage I have to shut my mouth and put up with being called names I wouldn't call my worst enemy.

    95% was a guess, I have only heard 1 current player say Brett should stay retired, I was guessing that I have heard or read comment by about another 99 that Brett should play.

    Sorry if I embellished, let me re-state...A LARGE MAJORITY OF CURRENT PLAYERS WANT BRETT TO PLAY IF HE DECIDES TO COME BACK.

    That better.

    Until the whole story comes out about this tampering thing, better watch what you say.

    From day 1, there has been 3 options, we all know what they are, I am just as tired as anyone with all this media crap. What's done is done.

    Training camp opens in less than 2 weeks, this thing has got to be taken care of by then or it is just going to be one continuous circus.

    I am completely fine with AR being the #1 QB, I just want him to have a fair shake at success, that will never happen until this whole situation goes away.

    Trom, you are still the king!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I typically enjoy your posts Trom, agree or disagree. But that wasn't really called for and far from appropriate in a civil conversation.

    Brett hasn't said anything about Rodgers that wasn't true. Brett didn't say he was a horrible quarterback and I have to agree that Rodgers does have to prove himself on the field. Just because he's the starter now doesn't mean we're not going to be screaming for his release if he performs poorly. And don't even think that I'll be forgiving because of all this "pressure" he'll be under. Brett Favre has played through the death of his father, a painkiller addiction, a broken thumb. Rodges plays one game against Dallas and goes on the the injured reserve list. I'm supposed to just forget all the years Brett Favre has given us just because he and the Packer management had a falling out? I doubt this would even be an issue if the Packer Brass let Brett come back as a starter. Yes it's time to move forward, but Brett has done a lot for this franchise... and I am not going to get short term memory just because he's playing for the Jets.

    I can understand if people have lost some respect but to say there's NO reason to admire him is going to far for me. I've been a huge supporter of Brett's for the last 16 years and this issue isn't going to completly erase histiry for me. In 10 years it will all be forgotten. And to say he takes no blame is also wrong. I believe at his last media deal he said neither side was totally to blame but both could of done some things different

    :rofl:

    The whole thing saddens me deeply. But when I think about it. Its all just part of the NFL. And I just have to live with it. I will always love and respect Brett Favre as a football player and a person.

    I have great admiration for all Brett has accomplished and I'm grateful for the great play he has given us for the last 16 years. But I no longer admire Brett the man. I think he needs to learn to stand on his own two feet and stop hiding behind quotes by his brother, his mother his agent and his wife. All this stupid retirement talk the last six years has worn on almost everyone. Had he decided not retire, he would still be in Green Bay as the starting QB. Once he retired and said he didn't have anymore gas left in the tank his organization moved forward and took 2 QB's in the draft. Then he decides he wants to come back then decides to stay retired, then wants to come back again. Good grief man, what do you want? He's in a better place right now, let's leave him there.

    I don't think it has anything to do with TT. This was a business decision started by Brett. The Packers moved forward. I admire him for his time on the field, but he takes just as much blame at TT.

    You won't last long bashing TT. It's just not cool.
