    Is there a reason on why adding a section just for Brett Farve talk? I havent noticed an increase of discussion to warrant an entire section about him.

    About every 3-4 months he does something to make the news. Upcoming is his return to Lambeau, his Packer and NFL HOF's inductions, his jersey retirement, and other points of media interest. Inevitibly the threads turn into the same rehashed arguements. Now, so I don't have to continuously skip them, I can move them here and keep them out of sight. Also if they are in their own forum, the option exists --BUT IS NOT YET USED -- to loosen the rules a tad bit.

    Well, first of all it would be nice to spell his name correctly.

    I think it's a great idea for the reasons Pappa San outlined.

    Probably the reason no one has posted anything yet. No one knows who the heck Brett Farve is.

    Will all "Fire Capers" and "Fire Ted Thompson" threads be moved to the nether regions as well?

    I was slighty tispsy when I made this thread. I assumed the person of the board spelt his name right. I just copied that.

    awesome! How many threads over the last 8 years got hijacked and descended into a favre debate? Now the only favre thread gets hijacked by a discussion of grammar. My opinion of humanity begins to heal.

    That's regrettable. The spelling part, I mean.

    Oh no. The flogging was for mispelling his name. I'm talking about the crazy spelling of his actual name.

    I thought it was going to be some entry on why Brett's family actually spells their name incorrectly and it should be Farve. Instead I get a lesson on wheat which is cool because the history of food crops is an area that I have an interest in. Not enough of an interest to look for anything on my own mind you but I always appreciate little nuggets like this now and again. Thanks

    Cajuns are, after all, just relocated French Canadians. You got the crazy part right. ;)
