Favre didn’t know Hall of Fame display would have Vikings jersey

When Tony Dungy posted on Twitter a photo of the new Hall of Famer standing with his son, Justin, in front of Dungy’s display in Canton, I noticed that: (1) Brett Favre’s display was immediately to the right; (2) it contained an easily-noticeable Vikings jersey; and (3) Packers fans weren’t going to like that very much.

[Expletive] the Vikings,” a fan wearing Packers gear said upon seeing the display, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Why did they have to put that in there? [Expletive] the Vikings.”

“Who came up with that display?” another Packers fan said. “He must have been a Communist.”

Pete Fierle likely isn’t a Communist. The Hall of Fame’s V.P. of communication nevertheless tried to explain the decision to sprinkle in some purple among the green and gold.

“That is an exhibit for the Class of 2016,” Fierle said, via the Journal Sentinel. “There are eight lockers created, one for each enshrinee. They contain artifacts of each Hall of Famer.”

Favre said he didn’t know the display would include a Vikings jersey.

“[T]here’s no doubt how I will be remembered, and that’s as a Packer, as it should be,” Favre said at a press conference on Friday.

Actually, he’ll be remembered as a guy who spent 16 years with the Packers, made it to the Super Bowl twice and won it once, secured three NFL MVP awards, engaged in public angst pretty much every year from 2002 through 2008 regarding whether he’d retire, prompted the Packers to use a first-round pick on Favre’s eventual replacement in 2005 due to the annual should-I-stay-or-should-I-go? routine, took the bait in February 2008 when the Packers pressed Favre for a decision at a time on the calendar when they knew he’d be more likely to call it quits, decided in July he still wanted to play, clumsily tried to force his way back onto the team, stubbornly tried to engineer a path to Minnesota, eventually accepted a trade to the Jets, failed to parlay an 8-3 start in New York into a playoff berth (thanks to a partially torn biceps tendon that the Jets were later fined for concealing), finally got his chance to stick it to the Packers by joining the Vikings, stuck it to the Packers twice in 2009, had a third Super Bowl appearance in the bag but for an ill-advised, schoolyard, cross-body, “this is not Detroit!” throw with the NFC title game tied late and the Vikings in position for a long field goal try, came back for one year too many, became embroiled in an embarrassing texting controversy that culminated in a $50,000 fine for not being truthful during the NFL’s investigation, had his incredibly impressive ironman streak end before his career did, and then his fourth annual retirement became his last one.

Even though time has healed the wounds in Green Bay, the scar from his two years with the Vikings is still there on his relationship with the Packers and their fans — conspicuous as that purple jersey in a locker that is otherwise green. It’s part of Favre’s overall career, and it shouldn’t be forgotten simply because he’d prefer it to be.

  1. It should be there. He played the finest season of his career in Minnesota, followed by the worst season of his career. Notable bookends of his time there.

    Green Bay made his career what it is………and Minnesota, unfortunately, ended it.

  2. You know, up until this week’s flood of Brett Favre stories, I just plain didn’t realize how much I missed him and all the drama associated with his antics and career.

    Here’s hoping the Cowboys give him a call before the induction so he can start yet another run!

    Well, maybe that’s not such a good idea. After all, we now have the commissioner’s endless drama and antics to keep us entertained. And Roger makes a much better punching bag because Favre (though annoying) is real and Goodell is just a money-making, power-mad pawn for billionaires.

  3. Some of my fellow Packer fans are such whiners and oblivious to our upcoming downfall. I bet the two guys mentioned in this article are stellarperformance and h0metownzero. We’ll always have our 4 Super Bowls guys even if our future is bleak and we don’t sniff the playoffs for a decade or two.

  4. “…became embroiled in an embarrassing texting controversy that culminated in a $50,000 fine for not being truthful during the NFL’s investigation”

    My my how things have changed…

  5. Relax. Both artifacts were what he was wearing when he achieved career milestones. Favre’s 421st TD pass (to Greg Jennings in Minnesota, by the way) to break Marino’s career TD total. The other jersey was what he was wearing when he broke the consecutive games started streak.

  6. My eighth grade English teacher would not approve of the run on sentence but you make a good point about the end. Age remains undefeated and untied.

  7. Mike,

    I don’t think it is fair to state that Favre wants to forget his time in Minnesota.

    If you ever listen carefully to Favre, there is no animosity in his voice when he discusses his time in Minnesota.

    Heck, just yesterday during an interview at the Hall of Fame, he said he was ‘blessed’ to have played in Minnesota.

    He would not have invited Adrian Peterson to his Hall of Fame induction speech either if he truly wanted to forget about being a Viking.

    Favre will always be a Packer at heart – I don’t think there is an NFL fan who thinks otherwise. Nevertheless, his impact during his Viking tenure cannot be overlooked – nor forgotten.

  8. It’s part of Favre’s overall career, and it shouldn’t be forgotten simply because he’d prefer it to be.
    —————————————————————-And how many other players that are in the HOF that have played for multiple teams have two jersey? None? Montana doesn’t. Yes he had a good year with the Vikes, but how would Vikes fans feel If AP played one or two years with the Pack and went into the HOF with both jerseys? If Favre didn’t know that there was going to be have both, they should take the Vikes out.

  9. I doubt Montana would have a Chiefs jersey or Emmitt Smith a Cardinals one

    Bit ridiculous to have this Vikings one on display

  10. favres best season he played was in Minnesota in 09 , that’s probly a pretty good reason for the vikes jersey lol
    skol Brett favre

  11. Packer fans are still butthurt! Try having another funeral for Favre, maybe that will calm your delicate sensibilities! Remember! The packer fans had a funeral for Brett Favre! An actual funeral!

  12. I’m sure Kevin Greene’s display has a Rams, Steelers, Panthers and 49er jersey. C’mon, they’re just not singling out Favre. Are they.

  13. I am a proud Vikings fan, who enjoyed having Brett come play here in MN. I hope he has some good memories from those years as well. His leadership here was great to see. Even I , as a Vikes fan, think most would agree that Brett will be remembered by most of the country more for his years as a fiery competitor in Green Bay than here in MN. I hope we trounce the Pack for years to come on the field, but let’s not try to rewrite history here.

  14. Well…must say this…when Marcus Allen went in he swore he was going as a Chief…NEVER a Raider because he hated Al DAVIS FOR SCREWING HIM OVER…Rozelle pretty much told him to do it or you won’t go in…politics…sad when politics find their way into a game…just sayin

  15. The real crime is that Dungy is in the Hall of Fame over guys like Mike Holmgren, Jimmy Johnson and Tom Flores.

  16. I’m sure Favre would have loved to play most of his career in MN. He probably hated spending half his year in garbage town because most of the players do. A lot of ex Vikings live here when they’re done. Packer players fly in to wave to the crowd and sell paper, then fly out.

  17. Vico din addiction is a non-issue. Who isn’t addicted to some substance to alter their mind or body? Alcohol. Coffee. Energy drinks. It’s called being human.

    Revis is a mere shell of his former self. Once again BB looks like a genius for not overpaying this guy and letting the Jets fall on their sword to sign him.
    ———————————-
    All of your comments from here on out have absolutely no credibility. You either clearly didn’t read the story or you just plain don’t know what to say and when/where to say it.

  20. do they have a jersey when he broke the league record for most interceptions too?

    Sorry, but time doesn’t make the back half of his career better, any Packers legacy he had he sent away like a text to Jenn Sterger. I’m sure he could have the Vikings jersey removed if he wanted to, but Favre isn’t like that, he’s Mr. Aww Shucks to the public and a lying, drama queen media conductor behind the scenes. He used to call some sportswriters and say, “I’m gonna retire”, then call other sportswriters and say, “I don’t know where the retirement stuff is coming from!”.

    This Packer fan will be skipping the game, and I hope this is the last I hear about him for a long time

  21. I think it’s appropriate to include the Viking jersey in the exhibit. Brett had 16 great years in Green Bay and brought that franchise back from the brink of contraction. They even moved the home games back to Green Bay and started selling out games again. Nevertheless, it’s a well known fact that Brett’s fondest desire was always to play for the Minnesota Vikings.

    translation, best year of his career!
    ///////////////////////////////////

    The best year ever of a twenty-year first-ballot HOF QB and the Vikings couldn’t support him enough to win a SuperBowl? And Viking fans keep telling us it should be a cakewalk with a QB of that caliber.

    The Vikings rewarded him by putting him behind a traditionally soft O-line the next season, thereby ending a distinguished career prematurely.

    At least that’s how I see it.

  23. Yeah, but what a ride. I’ll always remember favre in that green #4 tearing up defenses in the 90s and at one point his 1-7 record at the dome. ’09 sure was fun though.

  24. Favre invited Brad Childress (who accepted) and AP (who declined because he was busy). Yeah, Favre still has ties to anything Minnesota Vikings, whether Packer fans like it or not. Favre may love Wisconsin but he probably will forever have fond memories of that 2009 season.

  25. Since you mentioned Tony Dungy, he does NOT belong in the hall of fame. A good coach would have 4 or 5 rings with the talent he had on those teams.

  26. It’s fitting that Favre goes in as a Viking. His choke job in the NFC Championship was epic. He doesn’t belong in the Hall of Fame. Too many interceptions. Too many mediocre years.

  27. Purple pollution is immoral and evil.

    NOBODY wants to be associated with the only NFC team that meets two special criteria:
    a) Never won a George Halas Trophy
    combined with
    b) Never winning a World Championship

    They bad mouth every good team trying to cut them down, cry and whine about everything, yet predict a Super Bowl every offseason when they have had no chance in 40 years (2 generations) and can’t sell 50,000 season tickets (they won’t ever say what they do sell).

    Put a Jets jersey over the top of it to hide the ugliness.

    Favre appreciates and respects his time in Minnesota, and he should. It was very exciting. The Vikings and Viking fans deserve to share in his spectacular career as well. There’s no denying how close he came to putting his mark on that franchise.

    I never had any issues with him playing for the Vikings. I resented the manner in which he controlled the drama and the circumstances surrounding his exit in Green Bay. I put 80% on him. The second time he pretended to retire, he requested an unconditional release. Why would he do that if he was retiring? He selfishly wanted to play for Minnesota because he identified them as a stronger supporting cast than his own teammates, enabling him to notch his belt with one last SuperBowl before he retired for good. He was abandoning his own teammates. That’s what I resented, not the fact he went to the Vikings. He could’ve selected any team as stronger than his own. The Vikings were in the right place at the right time.

    Anyway, that’s all done now. It’s all good.

  29. Whatever. It is what it is and I can’t do anything about it even though I’m a Packers fan who still can’t stand this overrated loser.

  30. Those saying Dungy doesn’t belong because of the number of SBs he’s won are wrong, he could’ve ( and i believe would have) won multiple SBs with the bucs had he not been jettisoned in favor of gruden. That being said, Favre is a packer, this is just an overreach as his time with the vikings did not improve his chances at the hall, he had that when he left green bay.

  31. After the entire Cheese nation went ballistic over Favre being a traitor by joining the Vikings and making it a huge media storm it’s a story that can’t be untold.

  32. I for one would be fine if they took out the Packers jersey and kept the ugly one. Favre flipped off the organization on his way out of town and treated Aaron like a non-teammate after he was drafted, calling him a competitor. I haven’t clicked on a single Favre article on my favorite Packers’ news sites. Like Manning I just want him to go away.

    Geesh! The guy saves the franchise from being called the Milwaukee Packers after two decades of JV football. Then gets shoved out the because of Mr Munn and he should just go away quietly? No wonder he likes Minnesota better.

    I’m pretty sure most QB’s don’t go out of their way grooming a person for their job. Favre lit a fire under Rodgers to make him who he is now.

    BTW, go to any training camp right now and ask anyone trying to make the roster if they view their teammates as competitors…

    “Who came up with that display?” another Packers fan said. “He must have been a Communist.”

    Packer fans at their usual. I wonder what deep fried food they were holding while coming up with these gems.

  36. Two years as an old man at the end of his career wearing purple does not earn him HOF credentials as a Viking. why the HOF big shot decided it did is truly baffling.many other players in the HOF played for different teams but they dont put all the teams jerseys in the hall with them.

    At least they have something to wipe their hands on.

  38. He was a great player and as a
    Packer fan I’m happy his storied career unfolded as a Green Bay Packer. Congratulations Brett….

  39. To me, Favre was a player who could as easy lose the game as win it. He proved time and again that he made poor decisions with the football at the worse possible times. Guy should have had 3 or 4 rings over his career, but he blew it.

    I remember Favre’s horrible interceptions more than I remember his great plays. Don’t get me wrong. He made a lot of great plays, but those picks in a couple championship games and that 6 pick performance against the Rams really stand out I’m my mind.

  40. I love hearing packer fans gripe about Favre and how he was a “traitor” for going to mn. Yet they conveniently forget curly lambeau went to the Bears. Vince Lombardi went to the redskins AFTER screwing up the packers for decades (see the 70’s and 80’s) during his one year as Gm.

    Yet with Favre he “flipped off the organization on his way out of town”. They forget, again, that Favre wanted back in. But mm and tt didn’t want him anymore. They were so scared of him going to mn that they traded him to the jets with a clause that the jets couldn’t trade him to mn. Who flipped off who?

    Packer fans will never understand the business aspect of the nfl. They live in their own little bubble of fried cheese, fake stock and aluminum benches. They will never realize that the nfl football doesn’t revolve around them. The rest of the league is laughing at you.

  41. Lol thing is his best statistical season was in purple, too bad he was with the cheese heads at all, seems he would have been an even better qb 😀

  42. Oh right, forgot that he spent two random years in Minnesota. After Green Bay won another championship that Viking stuff just became filler. It’s not like he went to Chicago or something.

  43. I think it should be in there. Favre in Minnesota was a really big, shocking topic in the NFL world during his few seasons there, and he took them on a miraculous ride through the playoffs. Agreed with Mike, it’s a part of who he was, and shouldn’t be overlooked just because it was a taboo era in his career.

  44. Everyone knows he’s going into the HOF as a Packer and achieved his greatest success with the Pack, but if this gives some uptight overzealous Packer fans (ok,I realize that includes 90% of the fan base) extra heartburn, that’s not only just fine, but well-deserved.

  45. He also never used stolen defensive signals or deliberately underinflated the football.

    He still had leftover Packer juice in his veins by the time he reached Minnesota. That’s why he did so well in 2009. The real Viking effect showed up the following year.

  47. …took the bait in February 2008 when the Packers pressed Favre for a decision at a time on the calendar when they knew he’d be more likely to call it quits, decided in July he still wanted to play, clumsily tried to force his way back onto the team, stubbornly tried to engineer a path to Minnesota decided he wanted to play football again, tried to comeback to his team and was told not only that he could not play for the Packers but he could not play for anyone else and should retire, insisted on playing again and preferably for a contending team that needed a quarterback, eventually accepted a trade to the Jets, failed to parlay an 8-3 start in New York into a playoff berth…

  48. There comes a time in every fan’s life when he has to decide if he loves the sport or just wants to say “my team’s better than yours.”

    wrong

  50. Yeah, [Expletive] the Vikings. Hehe. Favre was a great QB, one of a kind. His best trait was he had fun playing the games. Loved the back and forth he had with John Randle.

    And then we turned on him and he left. He ended up liking Minnesota better. That’s what we get for mistreating him. He’s lucky we didn’t put him in jail on some trumped up charges and throw away the key.

    Some scars cut deeper than others and never heal. Never. Ever.

    ————–
    Truthfully, why would the purple want to live in the heads’ of obvious losers? We are winners, and I don’t give a rat’s arse that Favre doesn’t want to ackowledge his time with the Vikings. We have Zimmer, we are the North champions, and have one of the best defenses in the league, and Favre is so old in our minds that all we can say is, “Favre WHO???” All I care about is trouncing the Cheeseheads in Week Two, and I mean major trouncing to the point Lil Erin is squealing like a piggy to the refs on every play.

  52. I think some of those comments are friendly and some unfriendly jabs at the Vikings, because they are our little brother.

    If they were actually as salty as depicted in these interviews, they wouldn’t have spent that money to go to Canton. They know he played for the Vikings and its about honoring his entire career.

    Packer fans have always loved Favre, they just didn’t like him all the time.

  53. The guy is going into the HOF, it’s his career. He switched teams so he could earn a living to help support his family. Every stop he made is part of his Hall of Fame career.

    Too many fans take the NFL personal. Here is the thing, the NFL doesn’t care about fans, it Only cares that you spend money on their product.

  54. Athletes change teams all the time…..Packer fans need to grow up and get over it. I’m not a fan of any NFC team but I swear to God that Packer fans are akin to D. Trump. It takes nothing to get under their skin. I can see why Viking fans have so much fun doing it. If Packer fans would learn to ignore it……it would probably all go away. They have to be the biggest cry-baby fans but without the Packers, it’s just fly-over country….that would make me edgy too, lol

  55. There is a white Packer jersey in the Favre locker–on the far left–in the Dungy picture. It would have been better to have a green Packer jersey instead.

    Dungy getting into Canton ahead of Jimmy Johnson, Dick Vermeil and/or Mike Holmgren–all of whom made poor teams into Super Bowl champions at least once–cannot be explained with any logic at all.

  56. @shaggytoole…..little brother? Lol….The Vikes are the kings of our division. Have been for the most part of their existence. 19 titles to your 14. The Vikes have a much better overall record by far.

    It didn’t bother most of us Packers fans that he played for the Vikings. What bothered us was that he said that he played for them to spite the Packers. It also came out that he called the Lions front office to give them pointers on how to beat the Packers. He also, after a Vikings/Bears game in 2010, told Julius Peppers that he hoped the Bears would knock the Packers out of the playoff hunt when they matched up in a couple weeks.

    In other words, what bothered me was that he became salty and bitter to the Packers after they wouldn’t bow to his unprecedented demands.

    I got over it once I heard Brett tell the story about how Ted Thompson called him after the playoff loss to the Saints to congratulate him on a great season. Brett admitted that he would have never done that and that Ted was a better man than he was. That let me know that his bitterness was over and he respected the Packers organization again.

But, you know, 13 world championships and stuff.

  63. Packer fans are too sensitive and can’t accept he succeeded outside of GB, so poor Brett has to go out of his way express how much he likes the Packers more than Vikings …

    The did not burn down his house but plenty of them burnt his jersey. You can still watch many videos of these geniuses on youtube.

  66. I don’t remember the Favre from ’94 to ’97 well enough, but the first year Favre was a Viking was incredible. Unlike most Pack fans, I did not have a problem where Brett played next because he was TRADED!
    He played at such a high level and was robbed of the MVP. I still can’t believe Peyton got it. It was a magical year. He gets a bum rap on the interception, since the game was still tied. The Vikes lost it in OT. The photos of his bruises were horrific. He will always be a Packer to me.

  67. Not surprising, his best regular season ever happened in a Vikings uniform. He also said it was the most fun he’d ever had playing football. I’m sure if it wasn’t for fear of a mob wielding pitchforks and torches at his doorstep, he would have officially retired as a Viking.

    League titles: Vikes have one in 1969. If you’re going to count titles before the merger, then you guys have 11 and we have one. Get it right if you’re going try to make an argument.

  70. that’s what you get you d bag. I’m a huge Packer fan, admittedly miss Favre very much sometimes, but a big part of me wishes they’d made the whole thing purple. That’s what you get dumbass

    He wasn’t the same player after Holmgren left.

    After 2003, it was clear he wasn’t going to win another Title.
