Favre retires..........again!

26 posts in this topic

You know, I saw this coming and am not surprised, but why not retire as a Packer? He just completely hosed up his legacy and [PoorWordUsage] off a lot of Packer fans.............How many of you think he has played his last game?

Maybe he doesn't care what everyone thinks and just wanted to play the game as long as he felt like a team wanted him and he had a good chance at winning. Maybe I have already caught my biggest fish but I do it cause I like fishing. Many of these sports guys are probably the same, but everyone tells them they need to quit while on top. How would you like it if you just had the best fishing trip of your life and everyone said you should quit. I think the ones that "stay to long" do it because they love the game and the competition.

So how does this effect his options now that he's claiming retirement. Maybe he is truly done this time BUT if he decides to "un-retire", can he sign with a team without penalty to his new team or the Jets? Speculation on this will make for an interesting off-season now. I think he'd play for the Vikes if the opportunity exists.

Jets still have him under contract! So no he's not a free agent if/when he un-retires.

JeffB, I agree with some of what you posted, but my beef is with how he went about it. The Packers gave him a chance to compete for his job (once he came out of his tear filled retirement speech). Up until that point the job was still his. That is where my issue comes from. I don't want to start a huge thread like the one we had when he "retired" the first time, but had he said "I want to keep playing, just not as a Packer.", IMHO, it would have been much easier to swallow.

Pierbridge, I'm glad you like the Avatar............

IF he decides to return, he will "ask" for a release. I doubt the Jets will grant it, and he will stay retired. I am half certain he is done, and half certain he will come back.

Yes, I am trying to be funny, yet serious at the same time about the half/half scenario. Him and Ozzy Osbourne and Michael Jordan are going to go out on the re-retirement sucks tour this summer.

It was reported that his agent did ask for his release and it was denied by the Jets. I doubt we've heard the last from Brett.

I expect Favre to take a year off and then return to the NFL as the Vikings quarterback!

I was informed today (by the Vikings fans that I work with) that he now holds another record...............most retirements! grin

I hope he is done for good so he can return to Lambeau, have his jersey retired and spend the rest of his life hunting and fishing and enjoying the hall of fame.

Maybe all his antics so far the last couple of years will keep him out of the hall for a year or two like Chris Carter.

Man, sorry about being late getting in on this, but I had to do a 12 hour shift on the John Madden suicide watch, he's still with is though I am happy to say.

I think Favre will ruin his reputation more if he un-retires again. He's been milking this retirement stuff for 4 or 5 years now. He should come back as an assistant coach or something

I like JeffB's thoughts on the matter. His career is his own business, even though fans like to roar and thump their chests and talk about his place in "history," whatever that means. He's still a better quarterback than a bunch of starters in the league, and there's no doubt he could benefit the right team for another coupla years.

Shiner, just how long DO you have to use that darn avatar, anyway? Makes me shiver just thinking about it. gringrin

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
