A decision is expected Monday about whether or not Brett Favre will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
A joint announcement is scheduled at 1:30 p.m., according to a story from FOX 6 News.
Packers Hall of Fame Inc. President Perry Kidder and Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will deliver the news, and Favre will participate by phone, the story reads.
We asked Racine County Eye readers if you think Favre should be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame and/or the NFL Hall of Fame. Most of you think this is a no-brainer decision.
“Of course, are the Packers actually debating this?” Patrick Flynn wrote on the RCE Facebook page.
Lisa Pontello agreed.
“Yes, and yes. There is no arguing his contributions to football and Green Bay Packer history. The way things went at the end does not nullify 20+ years,” she said.
A handful of readers thought otherwise, but only Gordon Roberts offered an explanation.
“Let Minnesota have him; don’t care for pouting cry babies,” he said.
Heidi Jensen-Sheckles had a split opinion.
“No to Packers Hall of Fame but yes to NFL,” she posted.
But perhaps Justin Hankin was the most eloquent in his support of Favre in the Hall of Fame.
“Of course he should be inducted into both. While the end of his career in GB was questionable at best with his behavior, that does not take away what he had done in Green Bay for most of his career. He helped kick start a failing football club and bring it back into the spotlight. Multiple Franchise and NFL records, 2 Superbowl appearances with 1 being a Trophy year. His production on the field was second to none at the height of his career. Brett did amazing things on the field for Green Bay and the NFL, and he deserves to be honored for it,” he wrote.
