Brett Favre, I Apologize

With Brett Favre announcing his decision to NOT play for the Minnesota Vikings, many Packer fans owe Brett a huge apology.

I will begin with mine.

Over the past few months, amid speculation that he was returning to play for the hated Minnesota Vikings, Favre has taken harsh criticism from Packer fans by being called a traitor and some vowing to reject him for life. I have been one of these people and am now ashamed of not having faith in him to do the right thing.

Brett has shown his true colors by making the right decision and showing many fans that they shouldn't make judgements before any decision is made.

I for one hope that I can learn from this and not make the same mistake again, and hope my fellow Packer fans will learn the same.

So, I leave with this.

I am sorry, Favre, for believing the media and believing you to be a turncoat to the Green and Gold. I am ashamed of myself and will never doubt you again.
