Of course Michael Vick deserves another chance to play in the NFL. He's already unfairly been blamed for more than he actually did. Last time I checked, this is only the 1st time he's been found guilty of actually doing something he was accused of. So, it's only right that he returns.

P.S.

Purnell Peace, Tony Taylor, Quanis Phillips (a.k.a. Vick's so-called friends who turned their back on him to save themselves):

1. Killed way more dogs than Michael Vick
2. Killed dogs by hanging, drowning, electrocuting, slamming, burning, shooting, etc.

Michael Vick:
1. Killed a few dogs
2. Killed dogs by hanging & drowning

Peace & Taylor are already out of jail. Phillips will be released on February 22nd. So, these guys kill way more dogs than Michael Vick, & in way more various methods than Vick, but they get out of jail before he does & it seems like none of these so-called animal rights activists have a problem with this.

Vick also performes acts of perversion with the dogs. He should sign with the Cowgirls..."train" Jessica. Romo can watch as he fumbles his ballz.

Peace, Taylor and Phillips will not be going out and becoming millionnaires either. Vick, on the other hand, may do that. Some of us don't believe Vick deserves that priviledge. Peace, Taylor and Phillips may not even be able to make a decent living after what they did but football fans seem to think Vick deserves better treatment than they got simply because of who he is. I think he should suffer the exact same fate as his buddies.

Peace, Taylor, and Phillips for the most part were repeat offenders so they will be able to resume what they were doing before. Vick is not getting better treatment than them. The difference is Vick has an ability and skill set that will allow him to make that type of money where as Peace, Taylor, and Phillips do not. If Vick plays and makes money it will be because he worked hard and performed. Anyone here has the same opportunity as Vick but just may be lacking in the talent and ability area.

So is that the real problem that he may make millions. I don't know much about football but I didn't realize that it was a priviledge I always that it was a job.

I want to raise your dog, then I want to place your dog in a ring. I shall enjoy watching it get pummeled.

LeShandra, you so nasty girl.

Can I fart in your face? I have diarrhea too so the fart would be real wet as it splattered on your face.

Vick was the leader of this pack. That's why he gets the most punishment. That and the fact that the others "spilled the beans" before he did. They tried to cover for Vick and Vick lied his ass off but in the end, they sold Vick out to get a reduced sentence for themselves. Historically, the law will go after the big guys of a crime ring while courting the lesser ones to tattle. That's just the way the law operates and that's what they did this time. Too bad for Vick. But he should have known better and stuck with being a highly paid athlete. I guess he was just too much of a thug to do that.
