ok heres a twist for all you people saying brett should retire maybe this will shut ya up about him holding the team hostage

Packers | Favre's retirement could make team spend money
Tue, 11 Apr 2006 18:31:26 -0700

ESPN.com 's John Clayton reports Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre's retirement could be a financial disaster, but in a different kind of way for the team. With his $3 million roster bonus and $7 million in salary, Favre would make $10 million this year if he plays. The Packers would save $10 million of cash if he doesn't, but that's not necessarily a good thing. The Packers have a payroll of around $76 million, but that doesn't include draft choices or any other free agent signings. Not having Favre would take the payroll down to $66 million. With the new collective bargaining agreement, teams must have a minimum cash payroll of $85.5 million, meaning the Packers would have to spend $19.5 million just to make the minimum. With the players remaining as free agents, the Packers would be hard pressed to spend the money they would need to.


so you wanna keep praising tt and say hes doing a great job well if brett retires he screws over the team so maybe you should be begging brett to come back

but dont forget dave, donald driver and al harris are both going into contract years, so if brett retires they can sign al harris lonngterm ( that will cost a bundle, because al is one of the best corners in the game, and driver is looking at a substantial raise also ( he gewts around 2.5-3 mil per year( i believe) so he ll get another mil. a year.

not to mentio guys like colin cole who doesnt make a mil yet, nick barrnett who will be a freeagent in 2 years and is making cash from his original contract,hell get sub.raise, collin jenkins gets less than a mil, hes worth a sub.raise also. t.t. can buy out the lastr years of restricted for new f.a contracts, which will sub.raise all thier contracts and will save us cash in the long run if they hit the streets as f.a.

well im just showing you whats being reported and you gotta remember thats just for this year you can bring in woodson and arrington and you would still be way under like it says. I hope brett comes back cuz he will bring in both arrington and woodson and then i would have np with trading denver for the 5th pick and we get there 2 first rounders.
im just copying reports that i get so ill keep ya all informed

dave did you see the denver report where the guy sugg. brett and our 5th to denver for thier 2 first and jake plumber.It will never happen,but, everyone got to fuel something.

im just saying that if arrington doesnt come here and woodson goes to t.b., so brett retires, t.t. will get our cap up to that 89 mil minimum whith out blowing it on junk, we have enough guys we can sign long term. I forgot to mention chad clifton and mark tauscher ones a f.a after 07 and one after 08, so we got to keep an eye on the next few years and not tie up cash, on huge saleries.( i do realize we have 19-20 mil under the cap,but like i said al harris donald driver is coming up plus nick barrnett c.clifton and mark tauscher in the next few years). so thing to think about.......

Now, I think of all the people to replace Brett Favre, I would like to see Plummer, or either Manning brother. That would be a great replacement. Can't, or shouldn't happen. But one can hope. I don't want Brett to retire, I never did. I want him to make a decision though.. Since he isn't making one anytime soon, then hell, bring in plummer.

what that report is saying we are 19.5 million under what we have to spend without getting penalized but i dont know what it would be so you would have to change alot of contracts to make them all for this year im not talking long term if brett retires we will actually be about 32 million under the cap room which means alot of free money and we have to spend 19.5 million if anyone knows what the penalty is let me know

favre is waiting to see if we get a big namer lik a regie White. If we got 1 he would have made his decision and would come back. But since we havent hes gonna put off his decision a little longer to see if we get a big namer. If we get a big time pllayer Favre stays. If we dont make a move favre leaves. Thats all it comes down to. What would be extremely funny is if favre leaves, we then get a big namer, and then go on to win the superbowl. All this talk about are team not being good then bam we win a superbowl. how funny would that be.

I've been a Packer-Backer since 1946 and can't imagine ever cheering for another team - in bad times or good. We've had our winning cycles as well as losing cycles. That will always happen with a team. For those who want to argue about "who was the best Packer", most of you don't know the history of the great teams coming out of Green Bay. So, it is sort of like politics and religion, YOU CAN'T ARGUE THOSE POINTS. But I know this: just look at the gramatical errors, poor sentencing, poor spelling, poor punctuation of all those wishing to make their choice of words known; and you can determine the intellectual level of those morons.
