Brett Favre will be playing a football game in Wisconsin this July.
As exciting as that might sound to some of you, it is really not exciting at all.
Favre will play a flag football game for charity the day after his Packers Hall of Fame induction. The game, which will take place July 19, will not be held at Lambeau Field.
Instead, Favre and his game have reportedly been relegated to Camp Randall Stadium.
Not a bad second choice, but also not Lambeau Field.
Are, perhaps, the Packers a little tired of Favre and his demands after the whole “let the fans come to my induction ceremony” fiasco? Our guess is they are, but then again, they got exactly what they deserved. The plan for Favre’s Hall induction was short-sighted at best and, as we’ve long known, Favre’s only concern is Favre.
At any rate, the statement that the Packers have released for public consumption is that they declined to host Favre’s game because Lambeau Field is hosting a Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean concert on June 20. The Packers are worried that another event may ruin the Lambeau Field surface.
A flag football event where no one will even be getting tackled…
Because no one ever plays football on the Lambeau Field surface…
Dear Dopey the Dick,
Another superbly retarded article.

I would have to concur, Dave the Lions Fan.
Well Vinny, I am glad that you and I have come to save the masses here in Green Bay. They just simply don’t understand that nothing they do is relevant outside of their cow pasture of a state.
Now, if someone could just save the Lions franchise, then you’d have something.
Clearly the Detroit dipshit doesn’t know what relevant means. He’s here and reading isn’t he? Good luck finishing last this season Leons.
Your right, rather live in Detroit: the city just rated the #1 most dangerous place to live in the USA.
I can honestly say I have neither visited nor even looked for a Lions blog. Ever. I might have looked for a Bears blog to see the reaction after the Pack beat them in Week 17 on 4th and 8 a couple years ago, but never just for leisure fucking reading. Are you serious? To look up another team’s blog just for the hell of it is pretty much the definition of “having no life”.
I’ve never looked for another teams sites. First I could give a shit less, no matter what the game. Second, I already waste enough time on Packer sites. Why would I waste even more time on teams I don’t even like?
that’s ok. the HOF ceremony sold out quickly. i wonder if E. Wolf got his tickets…?
Yeah, this article is ridiculous… with its anti-Favre tone written as it is news or fact. At least Favre recognized that this would be an event that would appeal to the fans. The truth was in the ticket sales. Had it only sold a few thousand it would have said something… but it sold out, sending a completely different message. The Packer Management are still playing games and lacking in appreciation for the legacy of Brett Favre. The charity flag football game absolutely without a doubt should have been welcomed to be at Lambeau.
The management still fail to take any sizable responsibility for their backhanded nature that led to creating the rift from the start. Thompson chose not to reload the Packer gun for a final championship run with Favre in his final years in GB… and then Thompson chose to try to move on without actually stepping up like a man and doing it in a straightforward manner. Instead, they wanted Favre to just quietly retire and disappear… and had to spin things against Favre once Favre changed his mind because they were focused on their side project. They are just darn lucky that Rodgers panned out as well has he has. But… the whole thing should have been handled much much better leading up to 2008 and beyond. Thompson just does not have people skills… he can evaluate talent… but his skills in motivating and communicating are atrocious.
