(Newser) – In Green Bay, sides are being chosen, rival camps established. While some fans circulate petitions calling for the team to re-embrace the newly un-retired Brett Favre, 38, as starting quarterback, others wish he would step aside. The only consensus in town seems to be that people are tired of the drama and uncertainty, writes USA Today.

"I think Brett's got another 20 games in him," said one fan. Another disagrees: "I've watched him play and he's made some terrible decisions." With the Packers adamant that Aaron Rodgers will start this season, the focus may soon turn to him. "Just wait until they lose a game or two that Rodgers goofed up," grumbled one Packer backer.
