The hard part about relationships is when you have to say you are wrong – and Brett Favre took that step yesterday when he admitted his part of the blame in his divorce with the Green Bay Packers.
Here is what he had to say:
It’s over and done with. I was at fault … I feel that both sides had a part in it. If you can go back would I or them have done things differently? I’m sure both sides would have, but you can’t.
C’mon, is there anything more beautiful than that? Many think that Favre is a diva – and yes he’s done some things over the years that clearly places him in that category. But the bottom line is that he has recognized his role in the entire divorce and falling out with the Packers in 2008.
Like he says, “both sides had a part in it” and neither side can go back and undo what’s been done. Let it ride, shake hands, move on and let things fall where they should.
It is time. It is time for all Packers fans to realize that Favre is not the devil incarnate. He’s the guy who helped turn this franchise into one of the top three in all of the league.
We need to recognize him for that.
The Packers need to retire his number, they need to get his name onto the facing at Lambeau Field and we need to remember the good days and all he means to the franchise.
It. Is. Time.
