Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre said that he is not worried about being booed by Packers fans when he returns for a Lambeau Field ceremony.
The Green Bay Packers are planning on holding a number retirement ceremony soon for their legendary former quarterback, Brett Favre.
Favre was the most beloved figure in Packers history until one fateful day in August 2009. After flip-flopping on retirement, the Packers decided to trade him in 2008 to give Aaron Rodgers the starting job.
After a season with the New York Jets, Favre decided to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, which angered the Packers fan base. He put together an MVP-caliber season with the Vikings at age 40 and came short of the Super Bowl with an overtime loss in the NFC Championship.
Favre still has some Packers fans angry at him, so boos may be inevitable in the event he returns to Lambeau Field. However, he is not worried about that. “I’m not worried about that. I’m well aware that you can’t please everyone,” Favre said in an ESPN Chicago interview.
The future Hall of Famer is eligible for Hall of Fame induction in 2016, and Packers owner Mark Murphy wants to retire the quarterback’s number by then.
