Vick commited the crime and is doing his time. The NFL should allow him to play if there are teams that are interested in his services.

I don't know that he will be playing QB as he wasn't that effective before his sentence. I could see him in the wildcat or a Kordell Stewart type position.

Go Vick...

I'm sorry to disagree with your entire column, but Michael Vick should never be allowed to play NFL football again. First, for his conviction he should be ineligible per NFL rules and if there isn't such a rule, there should have been. As you mentioned, any team that would make an overture to Vick has to be out of their 'ever-loving mind'!! This man should have to find another job to earn his keep and he should have to forfeit any remaining time/money on any contract he signed as soon as he was convicted.

I don't think anyone will trade or buy Vick. PETA will go overboard demeaning any team that does. Besides, Vick is not a QB, he is a running back!

Vick will not play this season, maybe never play any season. PETA will rightfully make sure of that! And Vick is not a QB, he is a running back, but most of all, a very disgusting non human being!

So when something happens you don't like the rules should be changed to suit you liking. So if Vick didn't play in the NFL and found another job and made millions of dollar would you be fine with that?

LMAO-- This one is a REAL headcase--Does Barry Bonds mean anything to you freak?? Hilarious--

Maybe YOU have some savage killing ways, and if judged by your post, I'd say you DO--hehe

If you don't want to judge a man who hung, drowned, electrocuted, fought, and beat to death dogs for his entertainment, that's fine. But some of us find it rather disgusting and unacceptable, and we have every right to make our opinions known, as do you, freak.

Not only are you an idiot, you're pathetic, miserable, lifeless, an alias, and the list goes on and on and on and on. Now go pull out another one of your aliases in the bag of yours.

Any NFL team that would take Vick would be committing suicide. Vick has absolutely no business being in the NFL. What he did was horrendous and his apology was only for the fact that he got caught. I am hoping Goodell shows some sense this time and bans him from the NFL, he let Pacman Jones back and he only lasted about 6 weeks. The NFL does not need any more thugs or troublemakers. They need to get rid of the ones they have. The NFL policy should be you get caught your are gone. No more BS with these idiots who cannot handle being in the NFL. They need to be men not thugs and play for the team not for their individuality. The NFL is teamwork! Ban Vick and Pacman Jones!

Ralexa - I just signed the petition and forwarded it on to my football friends. Goodell hopefully will listen this time. I thought he was going to be a good commissioner but he has disappointed me with many things. Hope this petition works!

So, what about them? What they do to themselves is of no concern. Vick tortured and killed dogs just for fun. And, he lied about it. He didn't just do this to himself, he chose to do it to animals who couldn't fight back or defend themselves. Those "savage killing ways" was quite evident in what Michael Vick did. You need to get a grip of reality.

I don't think he belongs in the NFL. He belongs in a job where he can keep his head down and learn some humility. It's too bad that so many of these athletes are only that; athletic. Not intelligent, not caring, not concerned for anyone or thing other than themselves. He's not the only one, there are many more, but he is the only one who has committed a crime that involves torture, maiming, cruelty - all at the expense of innocent victims - and doesn't really seem too concerned about what he did. Yes, he's done his time, but do you think he's changed?

No, I certainly do not think he's changed as he will continue with the torture and killing of animals for his personal pleasure and entertainment. He has a psychopathic personality and is mentally deranged and unless he gets help, he will escalate to torturing and killing humans when the thrill of torturing animals no longer suit his needs.
