Too much has happened in the world and the country and the state - sports, big-picture, everything - for a former Packers quarterback to occupy thoughts that have been monopolized by the events that have occurred since the divisive summer of 2008 in Green Bay.

Favre has retired, what are the Packers keeping him alive as if he were still part of the team.

For the Money they will make selling everything under the sun with Favre's name on it. Do you think the Fans will still boo him once he hits the field lol

I am a Packer fan not a Favre Fan. I root for the Packers not a single player, but Favre did help return the Lombardi Trophy back to Green Bay and for that feat alone he will always be loved, no matter where else he played, Brett will always be a Packer first and foremost. Booing him is booing all that he accomplished as a Packer.

I agree But yet when Favre was with the Vikings that first year When he walked on the field in Green Bay The Packers fans was booing him & they was booing
him the whole game. Not only that many said it wasnt because he was a Viking That it was how he never come to OTAs & was saying he was going to retire then he wasnt then he was. He was a Selfish player was said about him. No one wanted him back., Fans didnt want him back & they didnt care that Favre Got the Lombardi trophy back to green bay. All was talking about how he lost there chance to go to the super bowl. No one cared the the team was 13-3 the season before. I know some may not like hearing this but its all true & thats is what was said at the time.

Many Packer fans are like Hans and me. We appreciate what Favre did for the Packers. However, booing makes more sound than not booing. Naturally the boo birds are the ones that get the attention. I don't mind you pointing out what happened. However, don't lump us all together with the classless fans. Every fan base has a minority of jerks, idiots and classless people. They simply tend to be the most vocal. They are NOT our appointed representatives.

They booed him during that whole Viking win, LOL.
Fans have never sunk so low, a new depth had been achieved, monumental, even for packer fans. A sad, sad display by the Majority of the fan base.

I didnt think I lumped you all together I was talking about them Fans At The Game. IF you was there & wasnt booing them Then you was one of very few that wasnt. But From what I seen on TV The fans at the game was loud., booing Favre & it was the percentage of the people there that was booing it sounded like to me.

I think they should 'erect' a 30 foot statue in front of Flambeau as a tribute to ol' One Eye Favre

Or they could have a lifelike statue of him down on all 4's, pants on the floor, so adoring fans could 'pop in' and feel what a real nfl game feels like

Mixed emotions on Favre.
I remember Favre use to get me nuts over the years with his interceptions and gambling ways on the field.
He had to be one of the most difficult qbs to watch. There were plenty of times i wanted to throw a chair at the TV.The 2007 season was the one i can never forget when he choked and threw that int that eventually cost us a trip to the promised land(super bowl).Another was when they faced the rams in 2002 playoffs when favre threw six ints.
On the other hand there were times i wanted to kiss the TV.
He was excellent in Super Bowl 31 and even though the pack lost in super bowl 32,
favre played well that game and was the defense that ran out of gas in the 4th quarter costing us the super bowl.
His unbelievable playing when right after his father died the pack faced the oakland raiders is to me the best ever i have seen in any quarterback!!!
399 yards w/ 4 passing tds.
One last thing- i cannot forgive him for going to the enemy(Minn Vikings)I understand him wanting to catch another super bowl title before he would hang up his cleets forever and he thought this was the team that can very well win the Championship but any true die hard pack fan like myself felt like he became benedict arnold.
For this i am sorry the saga continues.The love hate relationship for favre i have will always be there.

I live just a few blocks away from the bar where that scene was filmed. Reality is that stretch of beach is overrun by fossilized Canadian tourists. You wouldn't want to see anyone's Hunt there.

I loved watching Favre play even though I'm not a Pack fan. His ability to improvise and his arm made him easily one of the most exciting QBs to watch of all time. Favre the person always seemed like a retard hick who talked like he had cow chit in his mouth and was trying not to swallow it. I can understand the Pack's conditional love for him.
