Brett Favre on Packers rift: “It’s over, it’s done”

File photo of Brett Favre in New Orleans Reuters

As Brett Favre begins the process of healing his rift with the Packers, he says he wouldn’t change a thing.

Favre, who finished his career with the Vikings and with some hard feelings toward some folks in Green Bay, said on WTMJ in Milwaukee today that he doesn’t think there is anything he could have done differently.

You can’t go back. That’s the one thing I finally said, ‘It is what it is. It’s over. It’s done with. You can’t change that. You can change today and the future,'” Favre said. “I really don’t hold any regrets through my career. That goes from day one until the end.”

Favre did acknowledge that if some Packers fans have ill will toward him, he could understand that. But he thinks that’s in the past.

“I share as much blame as anyone. It’s over and done with. We’re underway in getting a resolution here and it’s a good thing. We move on. We move past it,” Favre said. “I can sit here and name so many things from a regret standpoint that I do regret, but there’s nothing I can do about it know but change from this thing forward.”

Favre said he hopes to spend more time in Green Bay in the future. He will be welcomed.

    Good. I’ve been over it for years.

    I don’t see how Packer fans can still be mad at Favre. He gave 16 years to the team and turned around a struggling franchise. Then he goes to the Vikings and with one single pass he crushes the souls of every Vikings fan. He rebuilt the Packers then set the Vikings back for years, how could you be mad at the guy?

  4. tokyofilthblaster says: Aug 8, 2014 12:56 PM

    He doesn’t regret the creepy texts to Jenn Sterger? Really? Or the masseuse thing?Really?

    He’s probably not being completely open and truthful. Some things never change.

    Favre is one of the greatest QB’s of all time. A warrior of a football player.

    There should be no animosity. Both the Packers and Favre made the right decisions at the time. The Packers have a superbowl championship to show that their faith in Rodgers was well placed and Favre took the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship game proving that he could still play at a very high level when he decided not to retire. (yes, he took the Vikings – thats like taking a middle school team down to Alabama and beating the Tide)
    Welcome home Brett!

    I don’t see how Packer fans can still be mad at Favre. He gave 16 years to the team and turned around a struggling franchise.

    Very true he was one of the reasons the Packers turned around (along with Wolf, Holmgren, and Reggie) and gave us many good years. And I think the vast majority are over it now and it is time for him to come home. As for the hard feelings, it is hard to explain to other fans what it is being a Packers fan but it is kind of like being a fan or a college team. You have to grow up there to truly understand what it is all about that is why I picked the college example. It would be like Bear Bryant up and leaving for Auburn, Archie Griffin transferring to Michigan just to beat OSU, etc. The Vikings are my most hated rivals (I respect the Bears) and he only wanted to go there to beat GB. I for one will welcome him back cheering loudly because I am over it but there may be some that can’t do that.

  10. GBwomenrhot says: Aug 8, 2014 1:05 PM

    Hell of a player…we’ve all done things we wish we can ‘do over'; good that he realizes tomorrow is guaranteed for no one.

  11. purpleguy says: Aug 8, 2014 1:09 PM

    For cripes sake, the guy played for the team for 16 years, won them a SB and will be in the HOF. Moreover, how many players finish their career with the team that drafted them? If fans can’t accept those facts, the problem is theirs, not Lord Favre’s.

  12. mypercyhurts2 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:10 PM

    I follow the organization, not the player. Favre hurt the team, and the team hurt Favre, but as long as both want to kiss and make up, I am all for it. Welcome back, Brett.

  13. thevikesarebest says: Aug 8, 2014 1:11 PM

    “It’s over,it’s done”,much like the packers season is already.

  14. fjd10 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:12 PM

    The only ones that I have no use for are the Favre hating Packer fans which I believe to be few but awfully vocal. Favre help save that franchise from the bottomless pit that they had fallen in and brought so much fun to the people there you just have to believe that the haters are a complete and total waste of the rest of our time. Get OVER it already.

  15. skawh says: Aug 8, 2014 1:12 PM

    and you’re “over and done.” time to go chop some wood!

  16. thegreatgabbert says: Aug 8, 2014 1:13 PM

    So if Favre comes to visit does that mean they’ll put the town of Green Bay back on maps around the world?

  17. In Teddy We Trust says: Aug 8, 2014 1:17 PM

    I have only two regrets:

    1. The interception in the Saints game. I knew no good could happen to the Vikings, but I still thought we were going to win that game.

    2. The entire 2010 season.

  18. theleaguesbest says: Aug 8, 2014 1:19 PM

    Favre going to the Vikings was the biggest trolling ever. Get their hopes up that they could finally win a SB, and then destroy all of that with one pass.

  19. SilentMajority says: Aug 8, 2014 1:20 PM

    It’s not over Brett. It’s never over. You hate the Packers.

  20. ariani1985 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:20 PM

    Notice that since he put a curse on Erin Rodgers he hasn’t won a playoff game!

  21. packfaninchitown says: Aug 8, 2014 1:20 PM

    Man still needs to apologize to the fans for the traitor crap. That would go a long way toward healing the rift that still very much exists.

  22. thejuddstir says: Aug 8, 2014 1:22 PM

    Do you think the Packers will elect BF to their HOF during a game between the Pack n’ the Vikes, LOL

  23. racksie says: Aug 8, 2014 1:22 PM

    Lets not forget that his last pass with the Packers was an ikk advised interception that he was told not to throw. But Favre had to try to make that Brett Favre play. And failed, And he did crush the hopes of Vikings fans by doing the same thing. Tried to make a big play, and failed.

  24. vikessuperbowlchamps2015 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:22 PM

    Bridgewater > Rodgers Pack are toast

  25. 667s650w says: Aug 8, 2014 1:23 PM

    I think the majority of Green Bay fans will welcome him back with open arms.

    And also because Aaron Rogers told them too..

  26. beerbratscheese says: Aug 8, 2014 1:24 PM

    How about “I’m sorry”? That’d be a huge step in the right direction.

  27. scrp2 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:25 PM

    Apologize to the Jets, Brett

  28. greengoldandbold says: Aug 8, 2014 1:29 PM

    I think a lot of folks don’t understand Green Bay and how immersed we are in football. GB is Football. We’re a drinking town with a football problem.
    The stunt he arranged to get to the Vikings was just awful. It was his way of sticking it to Ted and Mike. But in the end, he’ll always be a Packer and the animosity should have passed. I was one of those who miffed by his move and it did hurt us but only 1 year. The intercepted pass against the N.O. Saints which lost the game for the Vikings was my medicine. Get over it Packer fans.

  29. renbutler says: Aug 8, 2014 1:30 PM

    It’s over. It’s done.

    It’s overdone, that’s for sure.

  30. rikker12 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:31 PM

    That picture of Brett was taken when a reporter asked him what he thought of the Vikings organization.

  31. nvl004 says: Aug 8, 2014 1:39 PM

    So he is coming back to play?

  32. wisbadgfan says: Aug 8, 2014 1:42 PM

    As a lifelong Pack fan, I say welcome back to Brett.

    I do regret some of the things that you did and said—-you could have handled your departure from GB in a much classier fashion.

    That being said, it is time to move on from the all of the acrimony and distrust on both sides.

    Lets repair this relationship and move on as we recognize Brett as a Pack HOF member.

  33. weepingjebus says: Aug 8, 2014 1:45 PM

    This is just like the scene in Something About Mary where Brett returns to the one he should have been with all along if not for the betrayals of others. I’m sure he and that leathery orange grandmother that represented the Packers fans will be very happy together. (It has been a while since I saw that movie.)

  34. benniehifive says: Aug 8, 2014 1:46 PM

    I wonder…would the Favre haters, still hate him if he left Green Bay, had a terrible year with New York, and called it quits? are you mad because he joined the Vikings? or are you mad because he was successful? nobody remembers Jerry Rice as a Seahawk…Joe montana as a Chief…Randall Cunningham as a Viking… The Packers should have cut Favre, but then they would have bore all the responsibility of the divorce. once they drafted Rodgers they set the stage for something ugly if Favre didn’t retire within 3 years. Looking back on the situation you can easily see both sides of the story and nobody is really to blame, this is a business, and sometimes it gets ugly. I’m just hoping I can afford a ticket to the Packer HOF ceremony :)

  35. texaspistoleer says: Aug 8, 2014 1:48 PM

    I love how Favre is willing to “share” the blame for his decisions on retiring/unretiring and choosing to play for a division rival.

  36. scantenii says: Aug 8, 2014 1:53 PM

    I hope they throw a good party for that dude.
    Enjoy yourselves Green Bay fans.

  37. cattydukes says: Aug 8, 2014 1:56 PM

    “You can’t go back”….says the guy who has retired 45 times.

  38. tokyosandblaster says: Aug 8, 2014 1:59 PM

    There are going to be some people who are still angry at him. But the vast majority (and I’m not talking overweight, like your average minnesotan) will welcome him back with open arms.

    He gave the team so much. You can’t be bitter forever. Unless, of course, your team can’t win in big moments, and if you’ve never tasted the glory that is a Super Bowl championship.

    Then, I imagine you’ll be bitter forever.

    Welcome home!

  41. Getoffmylawn! says: Aug 8, 2014 2:10 PM

    I thought that after he threw that interception that destroyed the Vikings season, he was going to tear off his Vikings jersey and show the Packers one he had on underneath and give the fans the double bird!
    I guess he kind of did that just by throwing that pass and continuing the Vikings legacy of failure in the playoffs.
    FAVRE is the man!

  42. boiler72 says: Aug 8, 2014 2:19 PM

    Been a Packer fan since LONG before Favre – Lynn Dickey, to be exact. I’ll never agree with what he did – showing up uninvited to camp in ’08 and starting a circus for no reason, when all they did was move on, based on HIS decision to “retire”. I took Ted’s side then and always will. But, he did bring us back from 20+ years of misery and the records, iron man streak, and XXXI, etc. – can’t ever take that away from him. I won’t boo him, no way.

    Good observation by someone previously … you’re right, he did set the Vikings back years, lol. Well done, Favre!

  43. mnvikingsfan says: Aug 8, 2014 2:21 PM

    I gotta laugh at all the people that point out the failed pass that ended the season for the Vikings. That is a pass that weeks earlier he was praised for doing being one of the few that could accomplish it. It was a pass he has thrown his entire career with more receptions than interceptions. Was it ill timed? Perhaps.

    Iwould bet my money on Farve completing that pass against most any other starting QB or pine rider in the league!

  44. grinhea says: Aug 8, 2014 2:26 PM

    I’m happy he is coming home…and I’m happy that a lot of the fans have decided to focus on all of the good things he did here in Green Bay.

    We can all be mad he went to the Vikings…but that was kind of like punishing himself anyways. He’s the one who had to actually play there. He’s been through enough!

  45. filthymcnastyi says: Aug 8, 2014 2:34 PM

    Everyone in the league knows that Pittsburgh is the real Titletown!

  46. purpleppleeaters says: Aug 8, 2014 2:36 PM

    I thought he was going to fade away in the backwoods of Louisiana?

    Instead, we’re treated to the NFL’s biggest diva, trying to mend fences with the NFL’s most delusional fans?

    Good luck with that.

  47. alaskazz says: Aug 8, 2014 2:43 PM

    Please retire yourself to somewhere besides the headlines.

  48. myasylum11 says: Aug 8, 2014 2:44 PM

    If Favre never came to Green Bay odds are they wouldn’t have had a Rodgers either.

    Packer fans owe more to Farve than they even realize.

  49. cheeseisfattening says: Aug 8, 2014 2:49 PM

    A lot of cheeseheads really got their panties in a bunch when Favre joined the Vikings. And now years later some still can let it go. This is a perfect example of how some GB fans are such petty small-mindedness people.

  50. rollonthree says: Aug 8, 2014 2:59 PM

    I will never put down a professional athlete for having a tough time deciding if they want to continue playing or not. The mind and heart say yes, the body says no. Brett’s back and forth really turned off a lot of people, including the Packers. He still had 2 good years left in him and should’ve left after the pick in the NFC Championship game (one of the all time ballsiest performances I’ve ever seen of an athlete). But that’s all over and done with now.

    Brett is a Packer and I’m glad everyone is warming to the idea of him coming back. Great to see.

  51. longtimefanhtr says: Aug 8, 2014 3:00 PM

    I was mad at the end but I have put this behind me. I’ll be happy to see him inducted into both the Packer and NFL Hall of fame. You just can’t hold grudges and be bitter.

  52. axespray says: Aug 8, 2014 3:00 PM

    “….I can do about it know but change from this thing forward.”

    I “no” that Favre has a weird way of talking, but c’mon now… his accent isn’t that goofy.

  53. njpackerfan says: Aug 8, 2014 3:07 PM

    Whether Favre likes it or not, his legacy is tied to the Packers due his failed attempts to win elsewhere.

  54. pkrlvr says: Aug 8, 2014 3:08 PM

    Favre wouldn’t of even had to attempt that pass if his hof running back hadn’t decided to get fumblitis that game….or if the idiot coach wouldn’t have sent 12 men into the huddle. The entire team seemed to conspire to put it all on Favres shoulders. He came that close to doing it too.

    Let’s not forget that Brett Favre had to make that “Brett Favre play” in order for the Packers to have any chance of winning that game because he was receiving absolutely ZERO support from the rest of the team.

  57. aa1829 says: Aug 8, 2014 3:38 PM

    It’s not over until you apologize to the team and the fan base for deliberately trying to hurt the team. Can’t have it both ways, hurting us as much as you can, and enjoying the love heaped on good men like Driver. “I share as much blame as anyone” is like saying my actions are excused because of my perception of the actions of others, and I wouldn’t agree anyone else did anything wrong.

  58. aa1829 says: Aug 8, 2014 3:41 PM

    Hey long time fan, we don’t hold grudges, we remember facts!!

  59. ducksk says: Aug 8, 2014 3:42 PM

    Traitor. Vike eatin, sexting redneck. To have his name next to #66 and #15 is disgraceful.

  60. mediasloppy says: Aug 8, 2014 3:42 PM

    If the Vikings had a decent QB they were set to be Super Bowl winners for a few years. Favre knew that and wanted to be that QB, like all players who get old, get cut and want to finish on top.

    What Packer Trolls have a hard time remembering is Favre getting kicked off the team with a stipulation he couldn’t play in the same division. He showed he still had it as the Jets QB until he tore a muscle in his bicep and the season ended badly. That same season Rodgers was 6-10 and Packer fans were hating the Favre trade while the Jets were 8-3 before Favre’s injury.

    I actually hated Favre and the whole media for hero worshiping the guy until he played for 2 other teams that embraced him for the most part. Packer trolls need to remember Favre put Green Bay on the map and that 3 years of being his under-study Rodgers is a better QB than he would have been.

  61. deltaoracle says: Aug 8, 2014 3:45 PM

    Glad he’s getting his number retired and that both sides at least publicly are forgiving and forgetting. He was a once in a lifetime player who could make you scream in disbelief with both amazement and horror – sometimes in the same game. I’m glad he played for the Pack and I’ll cherish a lot of the memories.

    I’ll also be glad when we get to late October and most of the Mini ankle biters have folded their tents until the next offseason.

  62. indywilson40 says: Aug 8, 2014 3:46 PM

    The rift may be over, but now there is a schism.

  63. snoop24 says: Aug 8, 2014 3:49 PM

    The guy was the organization for 16 years. Rodgers is now the organization. Get over it Packer fans. Your team and city and everything else is meaningless without either of those guys. Ted Thompson is just another guy. Barney Rubble(McCarthey) is even more average than normal. Your stellar receiving core is average at best.

    The City/Coaches/Players/Team owe these 2 a lot of money and respect. Without them you would be a cold Omaha.

  64. atthemurph says: Aug 8, 2014 3:55 PM

    I wonder…would the Favre haters, still hate him if he left Green Bay, had a terrible year with New York, and called it quits? are you mad because he joined the Vikings?
    ————————————————————

    No. The reason that some packers fan hate Favre now is what he did to the franchise to try to screw them for telling him that he couldn’t play anymore.

    The Packers told Favre he was done after that ill fated int in the NFCCG against the NYG. A game that the Packers easily could have won if their QB had played like a moderately decent NFL QB that night. He was God-awful.

    I sat through that game in zero degree weather and watched receiver after receiver run wide open and Favre miss them, throw to the one covered guy on the field or simply freak out. He gave up IMO and apparently the Packers HC and GM agreed and told him to retire, which he did.

    Then he went down to MS and started yapping with his brother and a bunch of swamp-dwellers who told him he could still play, and how dare they tell Brett Favre he’s done!

    So he decides to show the Packers brass he can still play and forces a trade. Big deal.

    What Packers fans are pissed about is the crap like calling other teams to give them info on the Packers, talking to the Vikings coaches before he decided to play again and asking to be released so he can sign outright with a division rival.

    He still isn’t over it. Don’t think anyone else caught it but Favre said or posted that he’s extremely honored to be going into the Packers HOF with players like Starr and “the greatest GM in the history of the Packers – Ron Wolf”.

    If that isn’t a dig at Thompson I don’t know what is..Wolf the greatest GM in Packers history?? Maybe a guy named Lombardi or Lambeau or even Thompson are. Wolf is no higher than 3rd.

    Amen, have to agree. Yes, he was an all-time great and first-ballot HoF, and yes, he probably essentially singlehandedly won the Packers several big games. But OTOH, he also personally ended their season with terrible decisions in the playoffs on just so, so many occasions that I really can’t see putting him in the first rank, alongside guys like Montana. E.g., just talking about playoff boners, we have the 5-INT game v. StL, the horrendous “arm punt” to Brian Dawkins (in OT), the inexplicable forward pass when he was like 8 yards past the line of scrimmage v. the Falcons (GB’s first playoff loss at Lambeau), the dunderheaded 2nd-down OT pick in the NFC title game v. NYG you reference. Oh, and somehow he also presided over a home playoff loss to Moonman Moss & Co, tossing four picks in the process. Ugly, ugly stuff in each instance. Live by the sword, die by the sword….and Packers fans did a LOT of dying over the latter half of Favre’s career.

  66. ajgreenhof says: Aug 8, 2014 4:03 PM

    For the Favre haters in this thread and wherever you cast your contempt…you sound petty and small.

  68. conormacleod says: Aug 8, 2014 4:20 PM

    He gets shown the door by his team, which happens a lot each season. Then plays for a rival two years after you didn’t want him. And you’re pissed about that?! Why?! Because he showed he could play after you didn’t want him? It sounds like the Packers and fans are really just mad at themselves.

  69. averagjoe says: Aug 8, 2014 4:30 PM

    How can you hold a grudge against a guy who’d thrown more interceptions than anyone else in history?

  70. granadafan says: Aug 8, 2014 4:40 PM

    “It’s over and done with”. So, it doesn’t sound like he’s going to apologize or even thinks he needs to apologize for his actions and also for the horrible way he treated Rodgers, who did nothing wrong.

    Just how were the Packers supposed to handle his numerous retirements and the final one where he cried at the press conference? They moved on with his blessing and even wasted two draft picks that year. They risked losing a franchise QB in Rodgers, who would have rightfully demanded a trade or refused to re-sign, for an aging QB with maybe a year or two left. Favre created a PR nightmare for the Packers with his constant waffling and his ultimate return to the team.

  71. Getoffmylawn! says: Aug 8, 2014 4:43 PM

    He just said “No, I’m not having my number retired.” Wait… He just said that he is going to do it. Nope, just said no again. Hold it… It’s yes again! Hurray!

  72. rdrfan says: Aug 8, 2014 4:48 PM

  73. whatjusthapped says: Aug 8, 2014 4:48 PM

    For those that don’t understand the Packer fans relationship with the Vikings, BrINT going to play for the Vikings can be compared to divorcing your wife and having her immediately start sleeping with your sleazy, foul smelling next door neighbor. You realize that she never would have looked at him twice while she was in her prime but now that you booted her to the curb she is doing it purely out of spite.

    When you understand that comparison, then you can begin to understand the average Packer fan’s viewpoint of this.

    Let its all not forget how that trash organization tried to defile Lord Favre in the first place by relegating his services elsewhere.
    And after he waited & busted their dictating by leaving the circus in NYC, he found freedom in Minnesota.
    Yet, gbtrolls point fingers at their savior.

    “He gave up IMO and apparently the Packers HC and GM agreed and told him to retire, which he did.”

    What right does the GM and HC have to tell a player they have to retire? Who in the hell do they think they are? They have the right to say you are not playing for _their_team. But the right to say a player can no longer play at all?

    This is the type of crap Packer fans believe in order to make their ex lord and hero be a villain in their petty minds….years after the fact! Sheesh!

  78. ariani1985 says: Aug 8, 2014 5:26 PM

    The Packers told Favre he was done after that ill fated int in the NFCCG against the NYG. A game that the Packers easily could have won if their QB had played like a moderately decent NFL QB that night. He was God-awful.

    wow, did you watch the same game I did? Not sure, so let’s see if the statistics will back you up. The defense gave up 26 first downs, nearly 200 yards in rushing, Plaxico Burres get over 100 yards in receiving, and most damaging allowed the Giants to open up the 2nd half with an 8 minute TD drive.

    Despite having no rushing help and no support from his O’Line who regularly let the Giants through like a sieve, Favre somehow kept the packers in the game and sent it into OT.

    That same post season, Garcia, Romo 9when the Cowboys were an elite team) and lastly the undefeated Tom Brady couldn’t beat this team. And all three QBs had way more support from their team that off-season then Favre had with Mclardy and that excuse of a defense and running backs. Garcia, Romo, and Brady couldn’t beat them yet some ignorant Packer fans still want to hang Favre for not winning the game for the whole team despite getting no support. yeah, that makes sense.

    Move along…. nothing more to see.

    Of course in the heat of the moment people make decisions that they can look back on with 20/20 hindsight and say ‘”wow, what was I thinking?”

    For most Packers fans it’s over and they can relish in the glory that Brett provided for all those years.

    For those fans who can’t get over it – look in the mirror and tell the person you see that they’re perfect.

    Why don’t Packers fans admit going through pain and jealousy while Favre plays for the Vikings and crushed them twice a year. Cheese head fans can never forgive Favre even if they say they did. What a city, terrible fans and a terrible franchise. This is why trolls in little WI still in school when they reach 34 years old. (pepper) LOL!!!!!

    This just in:
    The Ignorance is Bliss Foundation and the Denial is a Wonderful Thing Organization have both decided to make Brett Favre their poster boy.

  85. packmanfan says: Aug 8, 2014 6:58 PM

    He is soooo overrated and a big time losing QB.
    Leader of all time interception and fumbles.
    Wins just one, only one, SB in a 16 year career and loses the other one. Pathetic.
    Goes to a rival and hated team of Packers fans. He knew what he was doing. Putting that knife into the fans backs.
    We are much better off without him.

    For those that don’t understand the Packer fans relationship with the Vikings, BrINT going to play for the Vikings can be compared to divorcing your wife and having her immediately start sleeping with your sleazy, foul smelling next door neighbor. You realize that she never would have looked at him twice while she was in her prime but now that you booted her to the curb she is doing it purely out of spite.

    When you understand that comparison, then you can begin to understand the average Packer fan’s viewpoint of this.

    I suppose I should hate Jared Allen for going to the Bears. I’ll be the first to give him a hand clap for his time in MN. I’d do the same if he went to the Packers. He earned his stripes.

    He left the Packers on his own. No one forced him to leave. When he wanted to come back, McCarthy tried to get him to commit but he couldn’t.
    Maybe he was going to be second string to Rodgers but whatever. Fail has only himself to blame for creating the whole mess when he left GB.

    Purple is the color of royalty but that Vikings tattoo will not wash off so easily with some Packer-backers, Misters Favre (“rift: ‘It’s done, it’s over'”) & Smith (“will be welcomed”). Though a demi-god still to most Wisconsinites, a smattering of boo-birds will be roosting on your official day. But any QB who could survive the over – under onslaught in Bounty Bowl (NFCT-’10) can withstand cackles of a few.

    When is the jersey retirement ceremony scheduled in Minnesota?

    A 40 year-old Packer castoff was still the greatest QB in the history of that sorry vikings franchise, so they should treat him with the respect he deserves.

  90. mousietongue says: Aug 8, 2014 7:48 PM

    I’m willing to forgive, but not forget. Like he said when he signed with the Vikings, ” It’s my legacy”. Yes it is………….

  91. universalchurchoftruth says: Aug 8, 2014 7:51 PM

    “He gave up IMO and apparently the Packers HC and GM agreed and told him to retire, which he did.”

    What right does the GM and HC have to tell a player they have to retire? Who in the he!! do they think they are? They have the right to say a player is not playing for _their_team. But the right to say a player can no longer play at all?

    This is the type of crap Packer fans believe in order to make their ex lord and hero be a villain in their petty minds….years after the fact! Sheesh!

    It’s cute when people think the reason some Packers fans are still mad at Favre is simply because he played for the Vikings. You guys obviously don’t know the whole story.

  93. speicher145 says: Aug 9, 2014 12:04 AM

    Rodgers is better.

  94. fenny88 says: Aug 9, 2014 2:24 AM

    Dont Worry Im over it. Brett Frave is #1

    All you haters:

    I imagine yourself in his position – you’re getting paid millions of dollars a year to PLAY A GAME that you have loved since you were a child.

    Stop there.

    I’m continually amazed by the Green Bay fan base and their capacity for empathy and forgiveness. Thank you all for setting such a wonderful example for degenerate Viking fans.

  97. zerochampionshipsmustsuck says: Aug 9, 2014 9:45 PM

    Quite funny how the hapless fans of the Vikings call Rodgers female names. You can call him whatever you want except a name you could never call any Vikings QB…SUPER BOWL CHAMPION! buhahahahahahahahah

  98. palmercot says: Aug 9, 2014 11:18 PM

    A great player with a lousy attitude and poor morals and a lack of good judgment. Most likely caused by the fact that like most players he is coddled and thinks he can do whatever he wants and get away with it. I didn’t care about his texting etc but to quite and go to a competitor that sucks. Loyalty goes both ways. He should stay gone period.

    The Packers won a Super Bowl post Favre. OK?
