    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- About 200 people rallied outside Lambeau Field on Sunday to pressure the Packers into reinstating Brett Favre as the team's starting quarterback.

    The crowd -- many wearing No. 4 jerseys -- chanted, "We want Brett" and carried signs reading, "Favre for President."

    Adam and Erick Rolfson organized the rally. They plan to hold another Monday night in the Milwaukee area and then every Sunday until the team reinstates Favre.

    They have started a Web site, http://www.bringbackbrettfavre.com where fans can vote on what the Packers should do.

    General Manager Ted Thompson says Favre can rejoin the team from retirement but would have to be a backup. Favre wants an unconditional release from his contract, something Thompson says he won't allow.

    The fact that they carried Favre for President signs is all I needed to hear.

    That's one of those scam sites that have you give out too much info. No way.

    Other than that Thompson did not say Brett could return as a back up. Geeze.

    and as far as 200 people showing up. That says it all to me. If I was Brett Favre and only 200 people showed up on a Sunday afternoon with no other major sporting events transpiring, I would immediately hold a press conference to say I was staying retired.

    there are well over 100,000 people in Green Bay. over 5 million in Wisconsin, and 200 people showed up. Curlys Pub probably served more than 200 people for lunch today. This is not a news story. Its a fiction peice trying to divide the Packer Nation. but its ok, because i know where the people with intelligence stand and I'm on that side.

    TT doesn't need a rally. BOYCOTT the "rallies". Don't embarrass yourselves.

    This is just two dudes trying to make the news.

    As a preacher once told me ... move it along now, nothing to see here.

    Nothing at all.

    Come on now. Thompson doesn't need a rally since he's the one running the organization's moves. In other words he'll be in Green Bay through next year baring some strange circumstance. I don't think anyone is going to be attending rallies for a teams GM.

    Do you really think this is going too help at all? I live in Green Bay and so far nothing has come of this. Point blank. The city hasn't made this out to be a big deal. Then again I'll check the news at 10.

    Oh and as long as nobody does anything stupid they might as well go for it. I just don't want to hear about Packer fans getting into fights at rallies or anything.

    Strange circumstance: Favre doesnt come back, Rodgers gets hurt, Brohm leads the previous years promising team to 3-13, Thompson gone.

    None of those sounds that strange.

    Hmm. ESPN had the crowd size as around 100, not 200.

    Either way, it's not gonna have an impact at all.

    Weren't you on here last year saying 3-13 or something like that? Maybe I got you confused with someone else.

    None the less I think Thompson and McCarthy would remain in Green Bay following the year you described. Aaron Rodgers got hurt. That's one reason and I simply don't see a change happening following one season minus Favre.

    I'm not saying it's changing a thing, but if they feel that it might let thier voice be heard, more power to them.

    I don't even think I'd go to a GM rally. I just expect these people to, um, do their jobs. MM and TT and the Scouts do theirs very well, so I support them, but I likely won't attend a rally in their honor.

    Rally because of Fuel Prices, Abortion, the cost of peanuts in Brazil. Rally for one person on a professional sports team. I mean were not talking about apartied. Wait a sec The PACKERS WONT RELEASE FAVRE MAYBE IT IS AKIN TO DESMON TUTU. I mean come'on I like Favre and wont be P'oed if he is back but I wont rally for a professional sports figure who just told me by his agents little letter. I dont want to play for you cause you didnt bow down and kiss my ring.
