<quoted text>Best football minds who? Not all footbal minds and columnists are on the Vick bandwagon. You will see that he is eon hit away from a serious injury and then the Eagles will have to eat all the guaranteed money they gave him. Couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch than the Eagles!
So what ? That's the chance you take with any QB. Injuries are going to happen. Why do you think they got a back-up who they wouldn't have to change the game plan for ? They paid him what he was worth. What they had to pay to keep him. Believe me, you're not the 1st to think he might get hurt. The Eagles know that, and it was absolutely figured into the decision.

"Society" doesn't reward Vick. Society gives him a second chance. That's the way America works. If you don't like it, take it up with your congressman. "Society" isn't putting a dime in Vick's pocket. Fans are. However, he is paying HUGE taxes TO the "society".
I never said a thing about second chances. I said with his style of play and his age the Eagles should not have given him so much money. I am all for second chances. I also said our system is messed up by giving athletes so much compensation for playing a game and not the scholars that we really need.

No, you mentioned "society". All "society" did was give him the second chance. You keep talking about "society" and "our system" as though money is being taken away from your "scholars" because of football.

<quoted text>Who said he has a degree? Hell, most athletes don't graduate from college. Him and his low life brother both went to Virginia Tech. and neither one of them graduated. All they have to do is have enough passing grades to play, nothing says they have to graduate. Plus we all know how easy it is for the team to give them tutors and help them take basic classes with barely good enough grades to play. Hell, they all do it. he is an idiot who can play football! Our system is all F**ked up when we award athletes more than we do doctors and scientists and teachers and such!
I agree, teachers are underpaid and under appreciated.
What bothers me is that someone might consider Vick a role model....

Obviously you are confused! With all the sports that are paying astronomical salaries how could I saingle out football? What I mean is our values are messed up by the way athletes are paid. Hell, you can't really blame the players for taking what is given to them but you can blame the fans and owners for paying high ticket and concession prices and the owners for paying the salaties to begin with. The NBA is seeing it now, only a hand full of teams are making any money.

I'm not confused at all. You're FINALLY saying it's the fans that pay the salaries. Not "society". And I still don't see how it matters when it comes to paying the "scholars" you're talking about. It's like more money would go to teachers if it weren't for sports. How does that work ?

You won't get an argument from me on this one, but children are influenced by the media, games, magazines every day.
It just worries me that this man will be glorified for his football skills, which are debatable, and his actions off the field will be largely ignored/excused.
Older friend of mine has 4 children serving our country in the military and a 5th one in jail. Sometimes people do things of which their parents would never teach..
The things he has done are so far beyond anything I can imagine doing, that I can't fathom anyone thinking it is ok. I know others don't agree and while it makes me want to poke them with a stick, I understand that not everyone values their pets as much as I do. Thank you for "talking" with me.

I understand what you're saying. One tip I can give you on this forum is not to fall into the trap other's have set regarding people like me being "supporters" or "excusers". I don't support what he did and most on here feel the same way. The people who say we do only do so because they have no other argument.
My biggest gripe is that people's anger seems to be misdirected. He's paid his dues and is allowed to move on with his life. It's not his fault if people think the punishment wasn't just. He's done everything that's been required of him including paying back his bankruptcy which he couldn't have done without football. That's where almost half of his guaranteed money is going. It's a classic example of the metaphor "hate the game, not the player". It's the punishment, or lack thereof that everyone should focus on. Not the man who has completed the punishment required of him.

A role model for what?? Torturing and mutilating innocent and helpless animals for his pleasure and entertainment? And for a period of 20 years or so? I am waiting for karma to catch up with him which should not be to much longer. He is the scum of this earth and the most hated creature. Anyone who could take animalw apart with his own hands and enjoy hearing those precious animals screaming with pain until their death is a monsterous devil and should be burning in hell.

You are going to think I am the biggest idiot- I did not even notice your photo!!
Thank you for being willing to discuss this with me! I won't tell you that the Cowboys rule at our house.
I am not able to get inside anyone's head and heart, no one can do that, I just can't believe while he was doing those things, he didn't feel remorse. If he did, he would not have repeated the same things over and over (from testimony that he did this for years). I can't comprehend doing that,
He had his punishment and PRAY that he will never influence a young person to act as he did. Do you know if he has makes any type of contribution to animal welfare organizations?

When a doctor or lawyer can score a touchdown, hit a home run, or split the net, they will be well rewarded. Its all about talent and what the fans are willing to pay for. I don't think there are fans who like to watch surgery or spend a day in court.

Unfortunately, you're not going to get a lot of "factual" information about vick from ol' geez. She doesn't even know that vick faced state charges for dog fighting and animal cruelty and was "provided" a canned plea bargain by the racist commonwealth attorney (poindexter) that allowed a ridiculous 4 year probationary period. The racist commonwealth attorney (poindexter), dropped the animal cruelty charges (if you can believe that) and vick pled guilty to one count of dog fighting and was given probation.

And no, vick contributes to no humane organizations. He is using the HSUS, and Wayne Pacelle is letting him, to try and lessen his public image as a warped sadist who admittedly took part in the drowning, hanging, beating to death, and electrocution of under performing dogs.

You have to know if vick was contributing or donating monetarily to ANY any animal welfare organizations, his "handlers and PR team" would be shouting it from the rooftops in an attempt to try and further diminish his reputation as a sadist who savaged innocent animals and found that to be entertaining.
