Hello welcome and thank -- particular time although -- -- -- well I guess the the topic I wanted to start off with is what have you been doing in in the retirement days I mean.

The coaching part of -- you're -- you're doing something with with a high school and and is there ever any anticipation on your part may be wanting to. A rise there you go through the ranks a little bit maybe you know transition into the NFL or college or something like that. You know much like pouring -- always had. Our -- Butler. I had not played a little big coach and possibly would never had a chance to coach it. And our schools. For obvious reasons. It next bit you know our approach is playing in a -- in have a lot of contacts and guys like this it would be much easier. But also. -- realize what time. It goes into effect from it is. Ridiculous really amount time that it all also that coach -- you know -- You know yelled at all. We know Ottawa when it's. All. Obviously if you will stress level goes as well. Yeah -- outlook art school coach and you know there's there's pros and cons would be with any level. Looks like play. It was disclosed employees possibly -- here. Without.

It doesn't really cereal bowl on high school football you really have to get to the samples so. Teaching and knowledge base with these with these here now that's not very well you tips and things of that nature I got that. Maybe a bit of new coaching on the you know he can't go and are always great ideas you realize right -- Is about a complicated issue here. Brett Favre here at this on WGR Sports Radio 550. -- you know since you have been retired for a few years now there's been. Some I guess some speculation that maybe the folks in Green Bay might be willing to. Come to UN potentially want to retire your number I know Aaron Rodgers has said they think that. You should have your number retired there in Green Bay have they approached you with that at all or is that something you would want to see happen for all the time span. And I don't Ottawa Gary Player and would not want it right on. I'm honored just by the all. And you know. Obviously there was. It's called -- -- whatever you know -- describe. People's sold its insides not really I'm over that have been over. Our own mark Mercury and at all -- on numerous occasions. I don't I never expected and do anything.

You know for example statistics and things of that nature which. I know I will be player and it didn't matter so all of matter a whole lot less now. And in so. That was made it transpired. That what are you know. Breaking out if you will. To be or over and done that. It's so. We all that happened -- either side this is trying to push the issue I think more Mercury is in marketing and really at the end of -- really the last few weeks some of marker Greenberg peca and -- It'll warn that it is if you will but -- -- We've been extremely right and in trying to law. To make this work and in our discussions you know it's been it will happen all. -- -- don't want it. I don't do it here -- you know could I thank the insider game when I know -- and that's where has become crawl because. That's where it should be.
