Your voice: Green Bay Packers Nation divided over Brett Favre


This past week, news broke about the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre deciding not to retire his #4 this season. They will wait until next year or maybe even the year after to hold the ceremony.

There were various reasons, but the biggest was that Packers brass and Favre were afraid of the possibility that there may be fans who boo during the ceremony.

My response to that excuse was explained in a piece published here on and shared across the Inter-web via Twitter and Facebook.

As with all news about Brett Favre, it raises a lot of voices and most importantly demonstrates why Packers Nation is so divided about one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play the game.

To that end, there were 34 comments about the issue on our Facebook page, another 13 who shared the story and 66 others who liked the post.

But it’s the comments that tell the striking story. We’ve decided to offer a look at those comments.

Whichever side you are on, you must admit that reading this stuff is pure entertainment.
