Please tell me this is a bad publicity stunt. A horribly misguided attempt to try and attract hits to their website. ANYTHING but an actual attempt to try and convince Ted Thompson to bring Favre back as the unquestioned starter. I'm sure I'm alone on this one, but I find this embarrassing and a bit hilarious that their 'rally' generated all of 200 (if you're being generous) fans in front of the Lambeau atrium. Hell, if all you boys can muster is 200 people, that pretty much tells us it's time for the Rodgers' era to begin. The fans have spoken! By not coming to your event!
UPDATE: Sorry, I can't resist. One of the geniuses behind this catastrophe, Erick Rolfson, is quoted as saying:
Last time we checked...Green Bay is a publicly owned franchise and is owned by the people in the community and by the stockholders, not Ted Thompson.
Oh my GOD. How stupid are these people? That's right Erick! The Packers are publicly owned! And if you actually read the by-laws, you'd know that your ownership entitles you to...wait for it...NOTHING! Well done! And you're right about Thompson as well! He DOESN'T own the Packers. But he IS employed by them - to run the football team! Your job? Running a Wauwatosa mortgage company! Obviously this gives you the authority and the wisdom to know who the best quarterback is for the Packers going forward. How foolish of me...
UPDATE II: Video evidence of this idiocy here.
