Murphy: Packers Attempted to Have Reunion with Favre in 2013

A reunion between the Green Bay Packers and longtime quarterback Brett Favre has been a much anticipated event among its fan base, but so far it has yet to come to fruition.

According to team president Mark Murphy, the Packers apparently reached out to Favre in 2013, but as the high school football team he coached kept winning, such an event became undoable.

Murphy said the following prior to the embarking on the team's annual Tailgate Tour on Tuesday morning, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

"There's not a lot to report. We do have on-going communications with him, and I think relations are good. We're hopeful to have him come back soon.

"We wanted to have him come back to a game last year, and his team kept winning and winning, so it kind of made it tough to find a time where it worked."

Favre was the offensive coordinator of the Oak Grove High School team, which won the Missisippi 6A state championship last season. He will not be returning to the school in a coaching role in 2014, according to a report, perhaps leaving open the possibility that his schedule will include to a return to Green Bay this season.

I won't hold my breath. It will be the hottest ticket in town.

Some people won't ever forgive 'Bart Favor" for going to the Vikings ... but he did give us a Super Bowl.
He should be forgiven, and I hope he is over time.

I hated for a while. A couple of years. But now I'm done. That guy made my Sunday's fun for 16 f'n years. Over time, those memories have won in my mind.

I still can't stand him. I've heard too many stories (topped off by calling the Lions to give them the Packers' playbook) to let it go. Until he apologizes, no go. I don't care if he never sets foot in Lambeau again.

It was a case where he thought he was bigger than the game. He was treated like royalty in GB and it showed in the end. He couldn't leave on his terms and it showed. It ended badly , and we the fans got the cold shoulder. He should apologize to the fan base, for the thousands of jerseys sold, filling the stadium every Sunday, and cheering for him. He forgot about what a great football city GB is and what it means to the people that support the team. Without the fans, there wouldn't be football period. No ratings, no sales, no high salaries, no $$$$$$$$$.
