This is officially an addendum/afterthought to an article I wrote a couple months ago entitled "Packer Fans 'Betrayed' Mentality Regarding Brett Favre Irrational," which defended both Favre and the Packers for their respective decisions.  This "popcorn" article is written simply to have a little fun before Sunday's big matchup at Lambeau Field. 

So, I pose a question to all fans - pro-Favre, pro-Packer or indifferent:  What song best represents the Favre vs. Packer Nation divorce?   Whether sung from Favre to the fans or vice versa, I welcome your creative contributions. 

As for my pick, I thought it might be cathartic for all parties involved to listen to Dave Mason’s classic “We Just Disagree” and imagine as if good ol’ Brett was singin’ the letter he wrote ya:


Been away, haven't seen you in a while.
How've you been?
Have you changed your style and do you think
That we've grown up differently? Don't seem the same
Seems you've lost your feel for me

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye.
There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy.
There's only you and me and we just disagree.

I'm going back to a place that's far away. How bout you?
Have you got a place to stay? Why should I care?
When I'm just trying to get along We were friends
But now it's the end of our love song...

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye.
There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy.
There's only you and me and we just disagree.

 

Hopefully, when a few years go by and the dust settles, Favre will Lambeau Leap back into Packer fans’ hearts, and a happier song will take its place. 

Until then, however, let's see whatcha got!
