    Default End of An Era in Green Bay

    I just read on ESPN.com that Brett Favre has told the Packers he is calling it a day and retiring. For a guy who seemed to be on the downhill slope of his career only a few seasons ago, he sure made himself relevant again the past couple years. Even though you know he couldn't play forever, it's going to be very strange to see a new QB under center in Green Bay in 2008.

    I just came across this thread from almost two years ago. We'll probably be watching another retirement press conference of his soon.

    My grandfather had a hard time leaving the packers. He was there before they became the Packers and a few years after.

    Here is a link from when he played. His name is Milt Wilson, he is located at the bottom of the page.

    The 1919 and 1920 Green Bay Packers - Independent Football

    He also played baseball that paid a lot more money that football back then. Added info: He got paid $12.00 to play the whole season in 1920.

    My grandmother died a few years back. There were some items we didn't want and it was crazy what some in Wisconsin paid for those items. My mother received around $125.00 for some the letters that were written during their retirement. Many other items she sold went for a lot more.

    Yes, and then watch another press conference announcing his return in week 3 of the preseason.
