Ok so there have been some interesting new developments in the whole Brett Favre situation. First he retired and since then, theres been lots of speculation that he would be returning but no one really knew for sure.
ESPN reported a bombshell though yesterday that Brett Favre sent a letter to the Packers stating that he wanted to be released. Oh no!!
The Packers have stated in the past that he would has had the opportunity to return to the team but since he has made the commitment to retire, they are in the process of “moving forward” with the team.
“Brett earned and exercised the right to retire on his terms. We wanted him to return and welcomed him back on more than one occasion.
“Brett’s press conference and subsequent conversations in the following weeks illustrated his commitment to retirement,” the news release added. “The finality of his decision to retire was accepted by the organization. At that point, the Green Bay Packers made the commitment to move forward with our football team.”
Many people feel like Brett Favre shouldn’t ruin his legacy by finishing his career with another team but I think Favre should do whats best for him.
If he wants to come back and play for another team he should be able to. I wouldn’t like it much either because it would be like Michael Jordan played for the Wizards or when Hakeem Olajuwon played for the Raptors. During those times it was kind of hard to watch those players because they were clearly on the downside of their careers. It will probably be different for Favre though, because last season was one of the best of his career so he clearly still has it and at the end of the day, no one really remembered Mike and Hakeem’s seasons with those team. They remember the glory days. I think the same thing will happen for Favre.
A lot of people don’t expect the Packers to release Favre but if they aren’t going to allow him to play for them next season, they should respect him enough to let him see what else is out there. It’s like that long relationship your in and you want to break up with your girlfriend but you can’t because you’ve been together for so long that you don’t want to see her with anyone else.
Just let Brett do his thing. Aaron Rodgers is their guy for the future so go with him. Just ask Favre not to sign with the Bears or the Vikings. If they pussyfoot around with this though, he might sign with one of those division rivals just for spite. Could you imagine seeing Favre come back to Lambeau Field in another uniform?
Would the fans boo or cheer? I don’t know but if he wants to, they should respect him enough to give him the right to do it. It’s his legacy, it’s his decision and at the end of the day everyone can blog all they want but he will be the one who has to deal with any consequences or benefits of returning. Good luck Brett.
