 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -About 200 people rallied outside Lambeau Field on Sunday to pressure the Packers into reinstating Brett Favre as the team's starting quarterback.
The crowd - many wearing No. 4 jerseys - chanted, ``We want Brett'' and carried signs reading, ``Favre for President.''
Adam and Erick Rolfson organized the rally. They plan to hold another Monday night in the Milwaukee area and then every Sunday until the team reinstates Favre.
They have started a Web site, www.bringbackbrettfavre.com, where fans can vote on what the Packers should do.
General Manager Ted Thompson says Favre can rejoin the team from retirement but would have to be a backup. Favre wants an unconditional release from his contract, something Thompson says he won't allow.
