Another controversy involving former record breaking Packers quarterback Brett Favre abounded when there were reports he was worried about boos at a potential 2014 comeback game.
Apparently, in the eyes of Packers fans, those boos would mainly be drowned out.
A Green Bay Press-Gazette poll got about 3,300 people responding to the question of whether they would cheer or boo Favre if he came back to Lambeau Field for his first game back since retiring with the Minnesota Vikings in 2010.
Cheers would outnumber boos by more than a 5-to-1 margin, based on their graphic.
