Blank actually sounds like a kind, fair minded man. I just have a problem with giving a "second and even a third chance" to someone who has done the horrendous things Vick has done. I wish ALL the NFL owners would purge their teams of the felons who are still playing and send a loud clear message to our youth that criminal acts will not be rewarded.....ever.

Is it because he committed a crime or a crime with an animal involved that some people feel this way about this guy Vick. Some of you act like he should have got life in prison or maybe even the electric chair! I'm not saying what he did was right or wrong but everyone needs a break.

Do you not think it would be a crime to put a bounty on someone........is it alright to have someone killed?........but a criminal offense to do with animals what they are bred to do......such as game chickens......Let it be known that I do not agree with dogfighting what so ever..........

No need to turn barbaric, just plea to the willing ticket purchasers, or those wearing apparel of the NFL not to purchase. If that works noone in the NFL will hire Vick Back and you will have gained your wishes in a civilized manner.

The animalistic nature displayed on this thread makes those who hate Vick no better than Vick because of the senseless acts he committed.

Both displays are Uncivilized.

Michael Vick is a horrible and cruel sadist who shouldn't play football again.

How can people stick up for him?

He enjoyed torturing and killing innocent and helpless animals.

He's not much better (nor different) than someone who tortures and kills people.

There again I do not agree with what Vick did.........But that is my point exactly you can not compare animals to people they are NOT the same......I have dogs and I love my dogs......I also have kids and I love my kids.......My dogs are nowhere near as important to me as my kids.........my kids come first........above all..........
