GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - Many Packers' fans are still upset about the way Brett Favre left Green Bay and played at rival Minnesota.  But Favre said Monday he put behind all resentment against the Packers much sooner than most people thought, and he was ready to be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame sooner than "maybe everyone else was."  It was announced on Monday that the three-time M-V-P and Super Bowl winning quarterback will be inducted next July 18th, his Number-Four will be retired at that ceremony, and his name will be unveiled on the Lambeau facade during a home game in 2015.  On that day, Favre asked that legendary Packers' quarterback Bart Starr join him as they take part in the pre-game coin flip.  Favre talked on the phone for a half-hour about his impending immortalization in Green Bay.  Any animosity seemed to disappear as he discussed his 16 years as a Packer  and how former G-M Ron Wolf believed him in when few others did by giving up a first-round draft choice to Atlanta to get the then-unknown Favre in 1992.  Green Bay president Mark Murphy talked with Favre for several years about getting him back in the Packers' fold.  But the idea didn't really get rolling until former team president Bob Harlan called him about it last Thanksgiving.  The Packers' Hall of Fame is currently closed for reconstruction, and hall officials said it was only fitting that Favre's induction be the first major event after it re-opens next year.  It will be only the sixth time that one former player will be inducted, and the first time it's associated with a number being retired.
