    The Metrodome applauded Favre when he scored the TD record.

    I don't know. I guess I think Favre deserves respect from the Packer fans when he brought so much to them over the years.
    Did they really.

    I guess.

    He desereves something baring his history.

    However, I'm sad, that this good game, will be owershadowed by this Favre maniac.
    I didn't clap.
    I boo'd.


    I tink the Favre mania will disappear (at least from the game) once kickoff happens.

    =Z=
    I clapped for the accomplishment.
    It is totally separate from him scoring on us.
    The record would have happened against anyone.


    Immediately after a congratulatory clap, then boo again.
    JMHO!

    As far as the Packer fans, what do you expect.
    I expected boos.
    I remember when Knobloch left for the Yankees (sold out) I boo'd him the whole game.
    I definitely felt betrayed in that whole deal, he was one of my favorite players at the time.
    It is one thing to be traded somewhere, but when someone asks to be traded or chooses to go to the team you most despise that is totally another.

    I think that once he retires from the Vikings, for good, the majority of Miller-rita-ville will be able to forgive him and take him under their arm.
    They will also give the keys to all the city of Wisconsin back to him.
    They will want to sign him to a one day contract and have him retire as a Packer.
    I am sure that is what Brett wants also, [size=10pt]he is a Packer at heart playing pick up games with the Vikings[/size].
    It is a good thing that he is so competitive.
    :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
    I thought Singer and I were the only one left who saw it that way.

    ;D
    The only ones?
    That's funny since Favre has said numerous times that he will always hold the Packers dear to his heart.
    He just wants to play the game and is competitive.
    There's nothing to see, it is what it is.
    He played for them for almost two decades and will play for the Vikings for maybe two years.

    Re: Favre: "All I ask for is respect"

    As much as Favre can be a Prima Dona he is also one hell of a football player.
    You can question his one super bowl win and his Ints but you don't see many 40 year olds who can still perform at that kind of level.
    I think eventually Favre will burn out one season but the reason he keeps coming back is simple, he still wants to play.
    I've known people outside of things like Pro Sports who can't ever hang it up, they still want to do what they do even though physically they just aren't there anymore.
    Favre will play until the wheels come off and I respect that in it's own way.

    As far as legacy and respect?
    Favre will always be a Packer no matter what, and the fans in Green Bay will get over this part of his career after he really does retire someday.
    Minnesota was just a chance for Favre to walk into a premade contender from day one and back in the NFC North that he has known for so well.
    If we keep doing really well or even win a Super Bowl this year I have a feeling Brett isn't going to have as much of his offseason not knowing if he'll retire.
    For anyone who wants to still compete out in the world I hope Brett Favre doesn't hang it up until he has nothing left to give.

    Great post Schutz.
    The funny thing out of all of this is you have all of those other QBs that played into their 40s such as Testeverde, Evens, Flute (I think), Moon, etc...
    Where were the people yelling they should retire?
    Favre plays at a level higher than any other QB in this league that played into their 40s.
    That is what I don't get.
    Favre is still better then at least 1/2, if not more, of the starting QBs in this league now.
    That said and if he has the desire than why shouldn't he play?
    He can waffle all he wants.
    It is his life.
    If teams want him and he wants to play than everyone else needs to get over it.

    GB fans need to get over it too.
    Quite frankly the team didn't want him.
    Who he plays for is up to him.
    He wanted to play for GB and they didn't want him.
    I understand they wanted to move on but that was THIER choice, not Favre's.
    If the GB fans don't want him anymore either than what's the problem where he plays?
    If he isn't good enough than I would be happy if he played a rival.
    Hell, I am happy as hell Culfumbler is in our division.


    If they love Rodgers so much then start acting like it and support Rodgers instead of wasting all the time trying to prove to themselves they don't care about Favre.
    Truth is if they didn't care it wouldn't be such a hoopla and they wouldn't disrespectfully boo a guy that brought their team to greatness.
    Low class if you ask me.
    Hell, even the Viking fans cheered for Favre when he broke the record for TD passes in our house.

    I was just saying to myself, "Self, I sure would like to see my old friend Schutz posting more".
    Posts like that are why.


    Good stuff my friend.
    Glad to see you up and a bit more active.
    Place has been lacking without you.


    On a side note, can you please rethink that last sentence for me though.

    :'(
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Another story from the Nayional Football Post. Somewhat insiders view of Farve Puker breakup.
    From last Friday. Hope it wasn't posted, search did not work

    Having spent nine years in Green Bay, I’ve commented often about both sides of the decision by the Packers to move on without quarterback Brett Favre. I’ll leave out the truly confidential parts of the story, but here’s a look behind the green and gold on some matters.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Lol ... I always love when a blogger/reporter says they are leaving some things out due to respect ... it is ALWAYS a lie. They are just trying to look more inside than they are.

    Packer fans comparing themselves to Jesus. Doesn't surprise me.
