Twitter Response: Ryan Grant

Nick Barnett wasted no time blowing up the social networking scene with his thoughts on Brett Favre.  He tweeted his thoughts and responded to the questions that will definitely invade the Packers locker room today.

12:33 CT “Jus did NFL sirius radio interview and surprisingly they didn’t ask about the big boy brett”

12:34 CT “And to all the fans.. Everybody wants to know how we feel about brett coming back… I’m not surprised at all.. Figured he would.. Cont…”

12:35 CT “And it really doesn’t make a difference to me that he is playing 4 the vikes…our team still has just as many weapons..doesn’t change goal”

12:38 CT “IF brett wants to play then he should be allowed to play..especially if a team is willing to let him..doesnt change The packers goal. Miami”

Other Notes:

ESPN’s Rich Eisen supported Packer fans on his twitter account quoting one of his followers and “Die-hard Packers fan,” Marques Eversoll, “make sure sports fans know that us packer fans arent all ignorant. i really dont care, im ready to play vs favre. period.”

Marques Eversoll defended Packer fans, but made himself seem like the ignorant fool he intended to protect with his latest tweet, “wouldn’t it be ironic if the packers ended favre’s career in lambeau?”

Packer fans are not ignorant.  The outrage over Favre’s latest return stems from the special bond that they have with their team.  Favre was our idol, our hero.  He was different.  He was a career Packer in our minds.  It’s painful to lose a player as special as Favre.

It may be difficult to watch a hero leave, and even harder to see him join the enemy, but nobody should EVER wish an injury upon him.  Personally, I hope the Packers sack him fifty times when they face him and pick off every single one of his passes, but I have those feelings 16 times a year.  It is ignorant and immature to hope for an injury.

    you people need to quit being a bunch of cry-babies!Players moving on is just a fact of life in sports. you got 16 of the best years out of Favre and how many superbowls? You should consider yourselves lucky and quit the bellyaching.Besides how do you make Rodgers feel worrying about the past. you need to wake up and move on already and cheer for your team and quit living in the past. I used to respect Green Bay fans and their passion for the game but most of your reactions to this are very embarrassing. smarten up
