Brett Favre retires

So Brett Favre will get his number retired by the Green Bay Packers and all that. Great. During the announcement today, Favre was again quick to point out who the real Packers fans are.

He’s consistently done this, knowing there are Packers fans who still don’t think much of him. That is, say crap like this.

It’s as if he’s trying to shame people into loving him again. “You’re not a real fan of the Green Bay Packers if you do not love Brett Favre. Now bow before Lord Favre.”

I’ve got news for you. This is fucking bullshit. It’s the same fucking bullshit he’s been perpetrating for years — putting himself above the organization, talking down to the fans. It’s the very reason some of us still don’t fucking like him.

Not because of his laundry list of misdeeds. Those could be forgiven. Because of his continued stance that he is above everyone and everything.

Listen fuckface, you don’t get to define who real Packers fans are. I don’t care who you are or what you’ve done.

Personally, I’ve been on the fence about this whole thing. I hated Favre for the shit he pulled, playing for the Vikings and all of that. Time went on and I softened.

Favre is one of the greatest players in Packers history. He helped revitalize the franchise in the 1990s. He didn’t do it alone, as some would have you believe, but he was a key cog in making that happen.

Given.

Let him come back and have his moment. Welcoming him back into the fold is the right thing to do. Blah, blah, blah.

Frankly, I’m not soft anymore. I cannot abide by this shit where Favre (or the organization, for that matter) thinks they can tell people how they should feel or how they should react.

It’s the same type of me-first arrogance that made this whole situation unravel in the first place.

You want back in my good graces? Time is no longer the answer.

Show some humility for once and beg, you piece of shit.

I am a real Packers fan and I’ve got a message for Brett Favre.

Go fuck yourself. Again.
