I don't get it.

Dear Brett Favre,

I wish you would stay retired and stay in Mississippi, riding your tractor. But apparently you've decided after a matter of months that the retirement life isn't for you and you want to play football again.

But I believed the Packer organization when they kept talking about how Aaron Rodgers will be their quarterback this season. But then you whined. And whined some more.

And now they're going to let you compete with Rodgers for the starting QB job?

Sigh. I'm not happy Brett. I'm disappointed in the organization, but I'm really not happy with you. You should stay retired. I respect what you've been able to accomplish during your career as a player. That will never change. But as a person? Let's just say I've lost a lot of respect for you over the past few weeks.

And I'm rooting for Aaron Rodgers. He deserves a chance. You had your time to shine in the spotlight. And then you retired. But apparently your definition of retirement and my definition of the word are different, because now you're back. And you'll be competing against Rodgers for the starting job?

I know which quarterback I'll be rooting for. And it isn't you.

Go back to Mississippi. I hear there's a great tractor waiting to be ridden. Enjoy your retirement. You've earned it.

Yes, yes, yes! Please. Retire in peace, let us be a little sad you're not playing, and we'll all move on, recalling you as one of the best to ever play. Instead you look like a whiny asshole football star. And maybe the football star half is accurate, but I can live without the other half.

Amen sister! I swear he's acting like a spoiled little boy. I've lost all respect for the man - unless he gets traded to the Bears. Then I *might* rethink that.

I don't know how he would even want to go back to green bay. From the sounds of it, no one wants him there, and they were going to pay him to no play? Why would you want to be there?! That is INSANE! He is such a douch bag.

Pardon my words..
