That Offer to Pay Brett Favre is Off the Table

Brett Favre

Remember back when Brett Favre was demanding to return to the Green Bay Packers and be their starting quarterback and the Packers offered him $20 million to stay retired?

Of course you do.

That was deemed a “personal services contract” and those in the organization said Favre would essentially be an ambassador of the Green Bay Packers. Of course, that’s all bullshit. The Packers were just trying to pay Favre to go the fuck away and not embarrass them or himself.

Ultimately, Favre told the Packers to shove it and engineered his way to the Minnesota Vikings out of spite.

But things are all rosy between the Packers and Favre now! None of that ever happened!

Packers president Mark Murphy was asked about that very offer earlier this week. Obviously, if it was legit then, why wouldn’t the Packers give Favre a personal services contract now that everyone has glossed over all the douchebaggery?

Huh, Mark?

“We’re not going to do that, no,” Murphy said.

So the Packers won’t be paying Favre to be their mascot or whatever you want to call it. Nor are we suggesting they should, but the good old personal services contract is a handsome reminder of what many of you have chosen to pretend never happened.

Not to worry though.

Both Brett and the Packers will be making some money by peddling Favre merchandise to any bozo that wants it. The Packers have an exclusive on Favre merchandise and they’re selling it in the Pro Shop.

Wonder if they have a No. 4 Vikings jersey in there?

    Well, at least there is some good news in all this nonsense.

    Not sure what you ate getting at? Favre retired the Pack moved on, Brett changed his mind again and the Packers offered to pay him to stay retired. What is the problem?

    I could be wrong, but i’d have to think that offer was off the table 7 years ago, once he declined it and went to the Jets. Good story though. Just 7 years late.

      If you listen to Green and Gold today, Bill Johnson thought the offer should still be on the table. As with the bit about the Bucks inserting terms that give them the right of revocation, he is wrong again about contract law. In essential terms, if you make an offer and decline it, the offer is null and void.

        I gotta ask ya Wolfie, did you watch the festivities last Sat. night? If so, did you get a lil choked up? You can be honest, were all friends here.

          I watched the videos. I remain unconvinced that he sincerely regrets what he does. I might change my tune if he sincerely wants the Packers to win Super Bowl championships. I do not believe he does.
          Are we friends? I will extend the olive branch to you if do so also with sincerity.

          1. PF4L July 22, 2015

            I also remained unconvinced he has regrets, I’ll change my tune when/if, he actually speaks about it, mainly to the fans. But so far, i haven’t seen it. Nor will i hold my breath.

            Forgiveness isn’t that hard to accomplish here. But the thing is, to be forgiven, you have to show a desire to be forgiven. If Brett favre doesn’t think he needs to address the fans after what the fans have showed him over his 16 years. then what’s changed?

            If someone gets caught cheating on their spouse, is there reconciliation without addressing it? I think Favre knows that as good as anyone, concerning his own wife.

    The ex-Viking probably needed help with the high cost of living in Kiln Mississippi. I wonder when they are going to retire his number in Minnesota?
