    :lol:

    The guy could have gone down as one of the most beloved Packer players of all time, but no chance of that now. Most die hard Packer fans we know (ourselves included) think very little of him at this point after all of his childish antics. What a ridiculous and sad way to play out the end of a great career...

    I, for one, can not WAIT to see the Viking in Miami this year for the superbowl! We all know they won't be the first team to buy their way in....

    Just a few more...but note...

    I have 2 good friends in Minneapolis myself, and they both told me pretty much the same thing - they are in shock that this ever came down, and suspect its all about selling tickets there - for a number of games last seasons, there were as many Packer and Bear fans in the dome as Vikings fans.

    Even Madden said on Monday Night football in 2007 "How embarrassing it must be to be a Vikings fan and look around and see more fans for the other team in your own stadium."

    Hey - if it brings some more fan support in Minnesota...good for them....but in the mean time....

    That he can get past the 1st step in any "12 Step Program" (denial)? :D

    I'm not a Favre-defender, though I enjoy watching him play... so I readily admit there have been things he hasn't handled well, including his "I am definitely done... no, wait" statements.

    But all that said, I have the biggest problem with the teams (last year and this year) courting and enabling him.

    I can understand how hard it might be to retire from something he is good at and enjoys when he is still very young and feels like he can do it... and while I understand all the business elements and wanting to win... I just don't think the existing QBs on the roster have been treated fairly during all this.

    I'll be looking forward to see the reception he gets when the Vikes play in Green Bay.

    Another reason I'm glad I canceled Sunday Ticket this year.

    That's actually one of the most level-headed and sense-making perspectives of the whole ordeal to date that I've seen anywhere.

    What are you...a trouble maker? :lol::lol::lol:

    I'm partially echoing a discussion I heard on ESPN with Cris Carter & Mark GuywhoslastnameIwonteventrytospell...
