Introducing our new show at Go Long. The Green Bay Packers legend will share war stories, follow the 2023 NFL season and tackle all issues in football as only he can. (You can hang out with us, too.)
I appreciate any and all feedback here in our Go Long world. This is a community. Everything — always — is up for discussion.
As you hopefully have seen by now in the first Brett Favre episode, the Mississippi case is brought up five minutes in. To the extent he can, Favre addressed it. And, as he noted, he’ll share a lot more when the gag order is lifted. Nothing will be glossed over.
Clint put it well here in the comments. Favre — like an infinite number of all-time greats — has many dimensions to him. He’s always been transparent and this show will be transparent. You cannot tell the story of the sport without Brett Favre, and that story isn’t shared through rose-colored glasses. Favre won’t hide. I think you’ll find the first episode incredibly insightful, as well as future shows.
Thanks, gang. You can reach me any time.
Side note: I’ll have our final season preview story live Saturday morning on Kenny Pickett.
I'm fan and was very excited to see that Bob McGinn is going to be a contributor again. This news has me disappointed. Podcasting with somebody who has at best a checkered past, has recently been part of a scheme to defraud the State of Mississippi out of a lot of money, and has generally shown no contrition for his bad behavior is not a good look. I'm canceling.
Having Favre on for a pod is certainly a choice...that I support. Favre resonated during his playing years because of his authenticity, his rawness, his ability to connect with the every day American. He’s flawed. He’s made mistakes. He’s real. Lets hear what he has to say.
Quite a get for Go Long.
As an 8 year old in Wisconsin in 1992, Favre was my sports idol. Between the fake retirements to play for a rival, dick pics, diverting tax payer money from needy people to his kid's volleyball team, and political opinions, he has offered quite an education on the folly of worshipping athletes.
I’m sure this will drum up interest for some but can’t support platforming someone like him, I canceled my sub. All the best!
Why? He’s a trash human. I love your long form articles, but definitely not renewing solely because of this
Choosing to platform Favre at this particular time in his life is.. quite a decision
Wow, the sanctimony here. Unreal.
Love this addition. This is a football site. He's one of the greatest players and on-field personalities in the sport's history. Everyone knows Favre is a flawed person. Lot of football players and pro athletes have seedy pasts. Shoot, NBA players father kids out of wedlock like rabbits. And if people don't like his political opinions, get a life.
Having Favre on the pod is certainly a choice. Consider me disappointed.
Same for me
Not going to cancel but Favre? Eh.
Huge HUGE get for GoLong.
