MORE ERUPTIONS ON E-MAIL
AND YOU GUESSED IT...A LOT IS FAVRE RELATED
In my never ending quest to do some late summer cleaning of my computer, I have more classic e-mails from my bin. This time we'll let the females have the forum, and since Kaela was so good the last time around, here we go again. She writes:
I have never posted a response to a news story in my life. But, I cannot ignore this one. I am so ashamed of the Packer organization. I have been a loyal supporter since I could speak. But, I will burn my Packer flag if they trade Favre. He is our quarterback ---end of story. These morons that question Favre's ability must have missed last season when Favre lead us to one game short of the Super Bowl.
Obviously this was written before Favre was traded. Kaela, did you burn the Packer flag in the proper way, like the Boy Scouts are taught to do?
On the other end of the spectrum, let's hear from Nada:
Steamed doesn't cover it when it comes to the news that Brett Favre is potentially coming out of retirement to work for another team. Boy, that was sure a short retirement. All of the tears, the warm fuzzy feelings that fans shed about our beloved QB are now GONE.
Brett Favre has been honest and hard working all of his life. He puts his heart and soul – in other words all he has to give – into playing for the Packers.
I would appreciate it if WTMJ 4 would acknowledge that he is entirely credible and the Packers Administration is not.
We have to listen and accept lies at work and from our government, where they slice and dice and twist the truth into whatever they want it to be. Please don’t help the Packers Administration do it with Brett.
Don't worry Jean. I may have grown up in this state, but my paychecks aren't signed by the Pack, and I don't wave pom-pons for the team, no matter how many people in and out of the organization want you to do that!
And Gail from West Allis gets the final thought:
Yes Brett switches back and forth on retiring or not retiring..but this man has given our great state of Wisconsin, the most thrilling and exciting football in the history of the Packers. He is a legend in his own time. I cannot imagine that Ted Thompson is giving Brett such disrespect by offering second string quarterback to him. Now come on!!! That is insulting and demeaning to this future Hall of Famer. I have cheered, cried, and agonized over the trials and tribulations of Brett's family's sadness, Deanna's breast cancer, etc. We all have lived a life with this man and his family. His greatest successes on the field and his greatest sorrows off the field, all played before us on TV and in the news. Why now, when he is facing a decision of retirement, as we all face or will face someday, do we abandon and scrutinize him?
That's a great question. Some people are too willing to cheer when things are going well, and dump people as soon as the storm clouds rise. I guess that's life, but it still doesn't make it right.
Thanks for the well put together e-mails...keep 'em coming at firstname.lastname@example.org
