Favre Fiasco

I'm the first to admit that I don't know all the ins and outs of the Brett Favre situation, but what I DO know doesn't put him on my "A" list, that's for sure.

To the best of my knowledge....
  • Brett Favre tearfully retired from professional football after many years with the Green Bay Packers.

  • The Packers announce that Aaron Rodgers would be their starting quarterback.

  • Several months go by.

  • Brett Favre has changed his mind and now wants to come back to the Packers.

Well. I used to like Brett Favre, but now I think he has a serious lack of judgment. Just because the great and almighty BF wants to come back, the Packers are suddenly to accept him with open arms???


What about Aaron Rodgers, who has been groomed to be the next starting QB? What is he supposed to do? He was assured the starting job, but now that's all up in the air because BF changed his mind???

Personal note to Brett Favre: just passing along a piece of advice I first received as a child...you made your bed, now lie in it!

You retired. That's it. Second guessing your decision? Grow up and keep it to yourself.

Are you creating havoc, just because you can??? How rude. I bet you weren't raised to be rude, were you? How you act and treat others is a direct reflection on your parents. I know that your dad passed away a few years ago. What do you think he's saying about your changing your mind?

Man up and stick with your decision.

If you'd have been patient and had not rushed into the decision like you apparently did, you wouldn't have created this fiasco.

When I was in college, I went to all the football games --that was before they got the stadium and we sat there in the snow with blankets on our legs. I don't like sports on TV except the Olympics and maybe occasional gymnastics. I like to see the whole field -- not what the camera man wants to show me.
