Are not uncommon businesses beside me and I -- our next guest fees some interest in the -- Putting -- in some of Wall Street's most celebrated chief executive.
Eddie George -- of four time Pro Bowl running back.
Turned businessman who is also pursuing his MB -- northwestern university's Kellogg school of management and Ron Mitchell.
A fifteen year Wall Street veteran and CEO of the alumni athlete -- an organization that helps place athletes and jobs.
On Wall Street -- -- the morning.
Good morning how -- doing I said guys so I we asked you guys to compare this situation to Wall Street and Eddie let me start with you use this move like Howard shelves at Starbucks that's but it remind you can't tell me why.
Because Brett Favre.
Trying to get back in revamp his career not so much the Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers still.
Bring in fans are still have the fans come and and subordinate team growth of Brett Favre was there or not this is Brett favre's says and say hey I'm coming back at -- still lead this team.
And quite honestly is going to benefit breast pockets you know way back -- make twelve million dollars this year.
And by this miraculous comeback you can also benefit from the Jersey sales are going to increase as well so.
This is definitely -- Brett Favre to -- continue to revamp its.
Career -- -- -- you are saying Jerry Yang at Yahoo! now why that comparison well that this American go a whole lot of ways and if you look at what -- Jerry Yang he came back a year ago.
Took over the Helm of Yahoo!.
He hasn't performed up to par and if you forget what Brett Favre was doing.
Not last year we need to looking -- -- -- for two years before he was terrible yet.
And so he could have the same type of Jerry Yang performance and be battling a Carl Icahn in the in the management and ownership.
I was still molested his her second Allen Iverson basically this is -- the Green Bay packer management is really holding an iron -- about this -- -- Morris Greenberg AIT I thought I was and other interest in comparison.
What they still a chance that they could move Brett Favre I mean this talk about him going -- Minnesota if you look at Hank Greenberg at AIG.
I mean he was so unceremoniously pushed out -- company he's still the largest shareholder of the company he sell on all the billion dollars to build a competitor.
-- you could see -- battling with Minnesota and Adrian Peterson the -- field.
For division championship against greenback -- that would be quite the -- different.
-- about yeah I had as -- And this is like a circus back at -- and and good -- I think this debt stood up and I think he probably did the right thing here by reinstating him a look at this done for.
The NFL's image and hit a candidate is a good thing for them.
Oh absolutely is a great thing -- -- -- the one thing in the NFL loves his ratings in in this soap opera definitely.
It's going to have fans new fans.
-- watch to see what happens with Brett Favre in and Rogers is -- if they are any quote -- quote fair competition.
So way to fill the raiders -- -- -- I think is going to be a lot of attention on this story throughout the season.
But I have to agree that I don't think reform might not be there.
Heading into the first game of the season he could possibly be a different uniform.
Yeah you know walk and -- am into the -- -- about the Green Bay Packers first ball is that the the fans own the team you know and that's another great part of the story here.
So so want from your perspective.
You know if you one of those fans or -- push shareholder's right now.
How do you feel you are because they -- -- on Rogers that this is the future of the franchise yet Brett had a great year last year.
Well you know.
You're talking about Green Bay fans first of all so that's slightly different I think than most -- holes across of America -- more like Apple's shareholders.
They just love the brand and they're gonna support whatever happens there you know Brett Favre is the Steve Jobs.
Of of green -- But you know they have to be thinking about transition.
No threat maximum is gonna play one maybe two more years until what are they gonna do next -- -- start grooming young talent.
You know any reading that you you.
Actually said that -- supply is when Brett said he was gonna hang it up back in March and and thought that he was doing a look a little bit too early.
The problem in my mind Eddie is that I've been a huge fan of his his entire career.
And I just think the way he's handled this unfortunately.
He's kind of look like a prima Donna and he's lost a lot of the loyalty.
Of people like me my dad was talking about yesterday my uncle has been a long time Green Bay packer fan how can be claim much.
-- hey you get -- get him back to the suitable that's tiring for -- you guys but you know he's definitely loving all the attention.
He loves being in the middle chaos the center of attention at this point in time.
Andy you know for NFL football player to move more into outside of football into something else is very difficult in in in -- case is all -- and he knows this is football and preparing for seizes sixteen NFL seasons in.
You can just see that last year he loved being out there and -- teammates all -- -- touchdowns and is being a little kid out there so he really should have.
Given him some time it.
And be honest with themselves if he was ready to move on.
Instead he pulled the trigger early in -- and -- situation.
Where he wishes he was back.
Yeah we were gonna have to happen and not speak to you about making the cool trade deficit at a fast.
Well -- -- now all -- ahead.
Our choices say hello I'm gonna come back next year you go breaded in special cases regarding and he's told -- that that organization Haas -- right now.
You know -- run at that they've been the part of this that's so intriguing -- is what's going on with the management of the Green Bay Packers in Thompson the GM.
Who is pretty vocal -- saying Rogers has been my guy and I'm not so sure that I'm gonna shift that and Goodell had to get in the middle of this and say.
Enough for this infighting you need to make some changes here -- that's not all had.
I'm unfamiliar Wall -- territory in terms of what's been going on on Wall Street is well.
Yeah I mean you know if you if you think about management being -- you know that the CEO of -- you have the regulators now coming in and saying okay.
But we got to change a few things that are going on here but at the end of the day you got to let management run the company.
Goodell needs to sort of stay out of it and let the team make the decision about what direction and wanna move -- He's going to be in Minnesota -- Today is not going to be -- -- -- partly thanks guys I think I think they got to move them outside of the division but I think I think more than likely he's there he starts.
By the third what it did not have a division.
Jets I want doesn't do -- without adding you know the talent heading.
You know I think it's going to be inside -- division you know Minnesota hasn't had the inside track I believe I think wanna see him move about week one because.
If they don't move him before we won this twelve million dollar signing bonus was it was getting -- that contract will be guaranteed throughout the years so.
I'm willing to bet that they wanna see how well he plays he's in great condition in -- probably movement.
By the first week.
All right guys week one we're gonna meet back here have heard oh yeah yeah.
Believe me I'd love to be in New York -- -- -- got a moderate degree pleasant seemed to youngest.
