Lets say you have tickets on the 50 for the Nov 1 game

During intros (or any other appropriate time during the game) would you 'boo' Brett, cheer for him, or sit on your hands and remain indifferent?

The answer, one which I have ALWAYS wanted to accomplish at a football game as a fanbase, is complete silence. Boos will get the opposing team fired up. Nothing but crickets would unsettle them.

Exactly... on the field you feed off the fans.. if I am the opposition I strive for that boo.. to me, silence would be defeating of sorts. Like I am not even worthy of a boo or a cuss?

A smattering of applause... Nonstopdrivel described it as a bunch of gloved blue-hairs applauding the amateur violinist at the tea party, I described it as General Patton's staff applauding the Russkie dancers in the movie, "Patton".

Silence would be good, also.

I still like my 71,000 fan collective moon-wave idea, but am an admitted aspiring- redneck.

What is this moon wave idea? Because if it involves 71,000 naked asses, and everyone turned around so that their faces are in the asses of the people behind them, it's going to be a hard sell.

I'm not going to boo Brett. I'm going to cheer against the Vikings like I always do. I may cheer a little harder against them now... if that's possible.

What Bozz said. Stronger, louder cheering for the Packers, but no booing.

I liked the Thompson mask idea - maybe a big ole group thumbs-down to boot. Then just go back to cheering for the Packers.

That would hurt more than any amount of booing.

Overall, though, I'd like it if Packers fans proved themselves to be classy fans and didn't react at all differently than they would if any other QB came to LF.

The beauty of such a question is there is really no wrong answer.. just depends on personal viewpoint and choice of how to voice your displeasure.

personally I would boo becuase I interpret his actions to be at least partially motivated by a personal vendetta against the packers. I consider it very disrespectful of the team that treated him so well, thus, I don't think he deserves any respect from me while he's wearing a viking's uniform.

I also think the Ted Thompson mask idea is pretty funny.

I said boo but really for me that would be a string of obscenities which I wouldn't be able to say too loud for fear of children hearing and tainting their virgin ears. So effectively on the field it'd be just as if I weren't making any sound.

boy what a laugh, people went on the hate Brett idea when he first was going to the Vikes, then he says hes staying retired and he was loved and once again he goes to the Vikes and the hate starts again.

If you want to be real Packer fans you would cheer him during introductions (after all he wasn't wanted here) and then the rest of the game you would treat him just like any other opposing qb. But i guess if people want to boo him thats their choice but i for one like the feeling of being known as part of the classiest fans in the NFL. But at this rate the days of the great fans are gone and the idiots are now taking over, no wonder we are no longer the best fans in the NFL and other teams are considered ahead of us.



I remember when Lofton came back to play against the Pack and he was cheered during intros and then treated like any other player after that.

I don't really get the "booing" thing either, but to each his/her own. I like the indifference. Maybe a golf clap.
