Late last night the Tampa Tribune reported that Brett Favre being traded to the Bucs was imminent, most likely within the next 24 hours.
Whatever...again...wake me up when something actually happens. I'm so done with Brett Favre.
Anyway, I spent some time this morning perusing through the comments on the Tampa Tribune post regarding the Favre trade...oh boy were there some dandies:
Farve was over rated and never good as Bart Starr was. Now he can go to Tampa and throw more intercepcions. Packers all the way this year with Aron Rogers! Go Pack go!
Favre to Tampa would be the best addition in years. Get your #4 Jerseys on order. Mr. Favre welcome to Tampa. Think of how many Superbowl rings you would have if you came here in 1999. As a bonus, we’ll even bring Warren Sapp out of retirement.
Brett Favre will bring the kind of excitement to Tampa’s offense for the next couple of years, the likes of which has never been seen in franchise history. If he can improve last year’s offense by 15-20% the Super Bowl is a lock with our defense.
life long favre fan sad to see him go. not as hard now as when he retired but it will be disgusting to see him wearing those terrible uniforms i may just puke on my floor. screw thompson and murphy the clocks ticking now.....
To the fans of the Bucs: take care of our boy! We’ll all be cheering for him (and you). Thanks Brett! We’ll never forget you. I’ll be buying my number 4 jersey as soon as it’s official. Go Bucs!
My flag comes down the min #4 signs with another team. I would hope TB kicks GB’s a** when they play, where can I buy a ticket and a Buc’s Flag?
I’ve been a Packer fan for over 30 years. I have been a die-hard, Packer zealot who thinks of nothing BUT the Pack during football season. My house was decorated mostly in Packer stuff. Today I took all the pennants and posters off the wall, took the bumper stickers off the car, and put all of paraphenelia into storage. Tomorrow, if this report turns out to be true, I am going shopping for Buccaneer T-shirts. I will be a fan of them until Thompson leaves the Packers. I hate him too much to root for the packers anymore (just until he’s gone, of course).
Just like I am a loyal Republican but think losing is good for them because maybe it will cause them to kick out some of the corrupt dead wood in the party, the Packers need to clean house including McCarthy, Thompson and the newest idiot in the trio, Mark Murphy. Where do I buy a #4 Bucs jersey for my son?
Here is my personal favorite:
Favre will make a good backup to Brian Griese.
God I love the internet. Just chalk full of good stuff. So what have we learned today from these fools?
-Bart Starr was better then Brett Favre
-Not only is the Super Bowl a lock for Tampa this year if Favre goes there, but there would have been subsequent Lombardi trophies in the Tampa front office if Favre would have went down there a decade ago.
-If you are a true Republican, you hate Green Bay (ehhh...this one is probably true).
Favre in Tampa Bay? Go ahead Brett. Enjoy yourself. I personally can't wait until week 4 when our defense destroys you (assuming you are even starting at the point).
