I think his number will be retired, no question about it. I wonder if it will be during Mike McCarthy's tenure as head coach is the sticking point for me, or even the more assumed individual, Ted Thompson. If they were both out, he'd probably come to town tomorrow and retire his number.

I'd like to see the Packers reach out to Brett Favre in regards to retiring the number. Both sides screwed up, but the Packers are like the 'dad' in the relationship ... they are expected to take the higher road. I kind of wonder if fans will boo him though, actually, its a worry, not a wonder. I think booing him would be terribly unappreciative.

if he did no one would be there to boo him.

actually I doubt very many, if any, will boo during a retirement ceremony. He [aid his dues he finally retired and more importantly he did not lead the hated vikings to their own Lombardi Trophy. If he ha there would be some (many) who would never forgive him.

I don't understand that first line. When his number is retired, it will be at half time of a game and that means more than 70,000 fans will be there, to which some will wrongly boo unless its handled properly from both sides.

I think some fans are still butthurt he played for the Vikings. I think most are fine with the forcing a trade, playing with the Jets ... but the part that I feel Packers fans have stuck in their butt is playing for the Vikings. I think sweeping the Vikings in 2010 and winning the Super Bowl diluted that hate quite a bit.

Personally, I'd cheer for him at his number retirement ceremony. I think it was a douche move to go to the Vikings, but then again, how many teams were only a QB away from being legit Super Bowl contenders? One, it just happened to be the Vikings.

If he came to town TOMORROW there would not be 70000 fans there to witness the ceremony.

Oh, I see. You took my comment out of text and didn't really indicate what you were referring to and then ... wow. Look, the point I am making is that I feel Brett Favre will come to Green Bay to retire his number more quickly if Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson are not associated with the Packers. I don't understand how that was missed.

We can't retire his number yet.

My dad heard from a friend who heard from someone on the radio who heard from a pretty credible source that Favre will be on da Bears in 2012.

The Bears? Weird, I didn't hear that Brett Favre was part of a drug ring or anything of the sort that would qualify him as a Bears target.

Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
