If we're talking about NFL divorces, what better place to start than with Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers?
This union was love at first sight and lasted a sweet, and sometimes sour, 16 seasons before the two parties decided to part ways. When it first became clear that the Packers were ready to move on from Favre, it appeared as if both parties were going to move on in relative peace.
Favre's retirement press conference was filled with tears, and you could tell that the decision was a difficult one. Then, out of nowhere, disaster struck. Favre decided he wasn't completely done with football and signed with the New York Jets.
As if it wasn't bad enough seeing Favre in a different color green for Packers fans, it got even worse when he signed with the Minnesota Vikings before the 2009 season. It was the ultimate act of betrayal, and one that Green Bay's fans will never forget.
Any hope of these two parties reconciling was thrown out the window the second Favre put on that purple jersey.
