Yall will have to explain to me why everyone hates Brett Favre.
He is one of the best ( maybe the best ) QB’s to ever play.
How many times did he really retire with a press conference? 2 times and one of those times he was pushed out by the Packers after having one of his best years. Would you retire after having one of your best years?
Packer fans that hate Favre now are the worst kind of fans. They are the people that cheered for Barry Bonds and then helped make sure there was no sign of Bonds in the new stadium. They blindly cheer for the name on the front of the jersey, and then could care less about the name on the back of the jersey once it is removed. ( No, Favre is not Bonds, but the level of fanaticism was the same. )
This is one of the best sports stories of the year. The Packers gave up on him, and he came back and beat them, and will most likely win the division whilst QBing their rival team. The Packers fans should not be mad at Favre for doing that. They should be mad at the Packers for letting him do that. They should be burning the jerseys of the Packers head office personal.
Brett Favre is a living legend. If you hate that he hogs the spot light, I have news for you. Living legends do that especially when they are still playing. If you are mad that he wanted to retire several times and waffled again and again about the decision, then you need to realize that he is not the first. That has happened many times to the worlds most loved athletes. Favre might be the worst at it, but that is no reason to hate him. This is how we solve that problem.
1. If someone wants to retire, we should get emotionally attached, but if they come back, then we should label them as a “Favre”
2. We should not believe a word they say about retirement.
3. We should not even cover their retirement/nonretirement press conferences.
4. We should believe them when they are inducted into the HOF.
