Brett Favre will likely not have his jersey retired in Green Bay this year because Mark Murphy feels the fans will boo his return. “That is an issue,” Murphy said, per ESPN Wisconsin’s Jason Wilde. “He doesn’t want it, and neither do we. He wouldn’t want to come back and get booed. You can’t control […] The post Would Green Bay fans really boo Brett Favre if he returns? appeared first on NFL Draft Diamonds.

  • I would be so shocked and disappointed if fans were to boo Brett after his amazing accomplishments at Green Bay. The only possible explanation for such disrespect would be the contempt shown to him by the Green Bay management when they did not know how to handle the handover to Aaron Rogers!
  • Probably, because of the garbage that Ari Feischer fed the fans about Brett. You remember Ari F, he was the one that the Republicans hired to feed the masses the lies about 'Weapons of Mass Destruction' in Irag to justify going to War there. And yes, the Green Bay Packers hired Ari F to feed the masses bad press about Brett F to pave the way for their despicable actions to get rid of him. So yes, the fans who believed his garbage will still boo Brett. I will never have respect for the management of this team, maybe when they are all gone, if I live that long, will I be a packer backer again. They created their own monster when they hired Ari F, at the cost of degrading a Class Act Quarterback. Sad
  • Green bay management all but threw Brett Favre out in the street when they were done with him. Are packer fans so stupid that they can't remember that? They think he was disloyal for wanting to continue his career instead of slinking off into history? Yes, he languished in New York because of THEIR management's ineptitude. But here in Minnesota, Brett returned to greatness and went right to the playoffs. If the dirty playing Saints and their bounty system hadn't wrecked him, the Vikings and Farve might have gone to the Superbowl.
  • All three previous commenters sound like they don't live in the area and don't realize what Brett put the Packers and their fans through for over 5 years. It was Brett's constant waffling - "I'm gonna retire, I'm not retiring," for consecutive YEARS. It left management unable to plan a draft because they never knew if Brett was really going to hang up his cleats. Packers management were left to plan without him,only to have him "come back" after training camp was essentially over. And he did this for a number of years. As an personal note, I think he was just tired of the training camp and practice grind, but still wanted to play. Unfortunately, pro sports doesn't work that way. So when management finally got tired of his inability to make a decision, they planned for life without Brett and moved on to Aaron Rodgers once they felt he was ready to control the reins. Brett couldn't believe that he couldn't just walk back into Lambeau, say, "I've decided to return - again!" and not be given his starting job back that he threw what I would term as one hissy fit after another. Management stuck with their decision and Brett took it personally. That's when he decided to retaliate and ensure he could go to a team that played the packers twice, just so he could stick it to Ted Thompson. After a year with the Jets, in which he "retired" yet again! He ended up with Minnesota and got his wish. He beat Ted Thompson twice that year. Yay for him. Hope he feels really good about that. He is still not worthy of any distinction as a Packer player for acting like such a d-bag!
  • A career not worth of distinction? Maybe a little bitter, brah? Wake up. Reggie White doesn't come to the Pack without BF. Fave made GB significant again!
  • Lets get the record straight it was Favre that retired and came out of retirement to play for the Jets for one season to get his chance to then play for the Vikings. Oh aren't they in the Central Division and a big rival for the Pack??????? Come on Favre is the one that stuck it to the Packers the team that gave him the coaching to become a three time MVP and a salary that made him really big. If he gets booooooed he earned it. Hey Grannie go back to sleep.
  • I see mixed opinions. I personally would not boo him. At the end of the day, Brett Favre was a legend and deserves to have his jersey retired.
