Favre not worried about being booed

So when are the Packers going to retire the #4 of former quarterback Brett Favre?  That question has been debated for a couple of years now since Favre last played in the NFL in the 2010 regular season.

The story picked up some traction earlier this summer when Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy was asked about the topic at the teams fan tour around the state.  Murphy mentioned that it wasn't going to happen this season and pointed to concern about how the fans would react to Favre as being a hurdle.

The picture that was painted in the following days was that Favre was worried about being booed by the fans that once cheered him for 16-years.  Favre was on ESPN Radio 1000 in Chicago recently and said that wasn't the case at all

The encouraging thing is that the two sides are talking.  After a messy divorce in 2008 and the events that followed over the next couple of seasons, some thought the day may never come that the two sides reconciled.  They are working on it and Favre confirmed that.

Favre will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016 and Murphy has mentioned on numerous occasions that the organization wants it done by then.  If nothing is coming in 2014, that gives the Packers and Favre the 2015 season as the target to get this done.
