Favre To Be Inducted Into Packers' Hall of Fame

GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - Brett Favre will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers' Hall of Fame after the facility re-opens next year following its present re-construction.  Also, the legendary quarterback's Number-Four will be retired sometime next season.  The Packers have scheduled a news conference about Favre at 1:30 Monday afternoon, and various media reports say both his enshrinement and his number-retirement will be confirmed.  Favre will appear via telephone.  Packers' president Mark Murphy and former president Bob Harlan have worked hard to mend fences with the 20-year N-F-L veteran after Favre's emotional departure from Green Bay, where he starred for 16 years and won a Super Bowl.  Favre retired after the 2007 season, and general manager Ted Thompson stuck with his decision to go with Aaron Rodgers when Favre wanted to un-retire a few months later.  He was dealt to the New York Jets, where he played a year before ending his career in Minnesota for two seasons - a move which he called a dig against Thompson at the time.  Favre left the N-F-L for good after the 2010 campaign.  His enshrinement at Green Bay has been a touchy subject among Packer fans but, as Favre has softened up, so have the Cheese-heads.  Last September, a political survey by the Public Policy Polling firm gave Favre a 50-percent approval rating among likely Wisconsin voters.  That was way up from 26-percent in 2010.
