The Truth about What Happened to Brett Favre
Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy, and Mark Murphy have caused irreversible damage to the Green Bay Packers organization. I have been a Packers fan for 45 years. What they have done is disgraceful and would have been unimaginable by any devoted Packers fan prior to any of this actually happening.
They are talking out of both sides of their mouths. They say Favre can't go to the Vikings cause that will automatically make them the best team in the NFC North. Well, that being said, then won't having Favre play for the Packers make them the best team in the NFC North? They are speaking in circles and will not speak the truth as to why they are doing what they are doing.
The simple truth is that Ted, Mike, and Mark want to call the shots and are tired of Brett Favre getting all the glory and attention. They are not doing what is best for the team, they are doing what they believe is best for them and their image. Mike says "Brett is in a tough spot". Gee, I wonder who put him in that spot. How can Ted, Mike, and Mark think what they are doing is the right thing when most sports prognosticators, experts, ex-NFL players, and NFL Hall of Famers basically are shaking their heads and are stunned as to why this has happened.
I don't know how I can root for the Packers this year or maybe for years to follow because of what they have done. It has been a big part of my life being a Green Bay Packer fan and Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy, and Mark Murphy have ruined that experience for me from this point on. I can no longer feel the same enthusiasm and pride when watching the Green Bay Packers. And for what? Just because Ted, Mike, and Marks egos could not handle bringing back the best thing that has happened to the Green Bay Packer organization and all its fans in the last 30 years. Thanks a lot Ted, Mike, and Mark, I hope you’re happy; you have destroyed the integrity of the organization and taken away the pride and fun of being a Packer fan.
