Packers Likely Won't Retire Favre's Number in 2014 Due to Fear of Booing

The Packers likely won't retire Brett Favre's number in 2014 due to a fear he'll be booed, Fox Sports Wisconsin's Paul Imig reports.

According to Imig, Favre going to a game this fall and being introduced to the crowd is still a possibility, although anything more serious is an almost definite no, as Green Bay's front office simply doesn't believe their fanbase is ready yet.

Favre, currently a high school coach in his home state of Mississippi, played 16 seasons for the Pack from 1992-2007, something that has been unfairly forgotten in the last few year's due to his multiple unretirements.
