    4:50 p.m.: The emcee promised the next speaker would tell us the secrets to making "staggering amounts cash" on the Internet. But by then, most people were motivated to go home.
    Seems to me, by the time Favre came on, most people were tired of being there.

    Add to the fact that this was a financial/business function, perhaps not exactly Favre's Target audience, and I severely doubt it was full of only VIking fans (Keep in mind, Minnesota has a huge Packer fan population)
    Excuses, excuses.

    Why was he even speaking then if no one wanted to listen to him? :dry:

    so you take people getting tired of listening to people talking at 4:30PM as Favre not having even 50% of fan support?

    Thats bs(*snicker*) logic right there.

    and why was he there if nobody wanted to listen? Becasue Favre likes to talk. You should know that. Give him a podium and he'd gladly talk about himself.

    You have no clue about that which you are posting, as usual.

    This "seminar" happened to be hosted, downtown, on the same day as a Twins game. Right next to Target Field. The traffic was a nightmare. People left early because this ludicrous "event" was paid for by their businesses (at less than $20 to "Get your whole office in!") and people were leaving in droves to avoid the Twins traffic - which was made even worse by the early 4pm resumption of the previous night's suspended Twins game.

    Favre was speaking for the same reason that any of the other people were speaking - because he got paid. End of story.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    hmm.. funny how that works.

    As well, this was a 'take your office in' seminar right?

    and people started clearing out just after 4?

    Hmm.. almost as if thats generally when mostp eople's work day ended.

    Explaining why things actually happened is not "spinning the same excuses". No one went to this stupid thing to hear Favre. Hell - in the advertisements, he wasn't even guaranteed to speak, and when he did, it was "via satellite".

    Have you ever once on PPO acknowledged that you have no clue?

    Many people had slipped out, and the arena was half full when Favre was asked about a possible next season.
    Obviously he hasn't won over the majority if 50% left. Throw me in the mix and he surely doesn't even have a 50% approval rating if you ask me.
    Once again you have stretch, twisted, and pulled a quote. They were talking about seminar! :blink:

    where did you get that 50% number from exactly?

    I'd be willing to be more than 50% of fans were happy with what he did for us this season.
    Did you read the quote?

    He (the Noodle) said majority of fans. The writer then said that half (= 50%) left before he talked.
    You act like Favre was the attraction or even mentioned as having a couple minute segment. Leave it to Marrdro to ruin a Favre thread.
