Bribe Is the Tipping Point

Bribe Is the Tipping Point

Any chance the Packers had of swaying public sentiment to their side has been blown to smithereens. The bribe is the final straw. Fans will now grow angry and much more vocal in favor of Favre over the next few days, no doubt continuing to mobilize themselves and each other. If you though the Favre websites were silly and sad before (as I do) - just wait until they're empowred by Family Night. I have no doubt the crowd will be in full throat for Favre, even if he isn't there. I would be shocked if the Packers allowed him to attend, but they have now mishandled this thing so badly, I just can't trust their collective instincts whatsoever.

The only person I still have respect for after all of this is Mike McCarthy.

I would say the chance you see at Favre at family night is slim, and probably for good reason.

Good point re: McCarthy. I've noticed a shift in his statements (Favre a part of the future, etc.) that has distanced him from Murphy & TT, plus being on the practice field and focusing on football has helped in that as well.

Hopefully he'll enjoy continued support from the fans. At least the ones who are left.

The bribe could also shift sentiment when it comes to Grant. How can you offer to pay Favre $20M to NOT play, but won't budge a couple mill to get Grant on the field? It's ridiculous.

Pay not to play???? Where the hell is my money? I'm not playing.

According to Adam Shefter of NFL network the bribe rumors are false.
Let's hope so.

The next hot rumor will be." TT offers Favre new lawn tractor every year for 50 years not to show up.

I hope you are right, dgb454. We will know soon enough if they are rumors or not. When I heard that, Homer Simpson came to mind. . . "DOH!!!" That will lean the vote to BAD GUY towards TT.
