Michael Vick says Eagles can be a dynasty

Jul 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: 1450 WILM NEWSRADIO

Fresh off of a disappointing 8-8 campaign, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says his team has a chance to become a "dynasty." The disaster that was the 2011 "Dream Team" Eagles isn't scaring Michael Vick from associating an even bigger "D" word to describe his team heading into the 2012 season.

Dynasties are hard to maintain these days because as a team gets better, the players responsible will start commanding bigger salaries than can be fit under the salary cap and some star players will have to be allowed to walk.

While others will have to be released from their contracts to serve their time.

I seriously doubt Vick wants to go back there. I just don't think he is that unwise after a 19 month residence in prison.

Vick has paid his debt to society. Let us not convict him again until and if he screws up again.

So, do you give that same consideration to pedophiles, murderers, drug dealers and other animal abusers?
FYI....Vick has NOT paid his full debt to society. He went to jail simply for racketeering related to the dogfighting. He didn't serve one day in jail for the dogfighting charges or for the animal abuse. One of the resources of dogs purchased by Bad Newz Kennels was Albert White in Georgia. He was eventually arrested, served 10 years in jail, and received 10 years of probation. He didn't even fight the dogs, merely bred and sold them. Compare that to Vick's 19 months and tell me again how he "paid his debt to society".

No, he really hasn't. A racist commonweath district attorney in Surry named poindexter made sure of that. vick never served a single day in prison for dog fighting or animal abuse. poindexter worked out a plea deal with/for vick that convicted him of 1 count of dog fighting (no time served & 3 years probation) and dropped every single instance of animal cruelty. After the sentence was handed down in the court room, poindexter walked up to the wonderful mother that dropped vick, hugged her, and was heard to say, "It's all over with now".

Granted, that BS happens occasionally to celebrities and the wealthy but it's a far cry from "paying your debt to society".

I deplore what he did to those fogs. However, There is more hope for him than who is a sex offender. He poses a far lesser threat to society than a sex offender or killer. I have seen cases where killers got off easier than Vick. You are comparing apples to avocados.

Who cares what the charges read. He still went to jail as a result of his horrible hobby, albeit indirectly and he certainly does not want to go back to jail. We can debste forever about how long He served and if the sentence was too lenient or too harsh. He was released from jail and is now free to pursue his fortune.

I am not trying to whitewash him in any way.If Vick screws up again, I will be the first to recommend the destruction of the key to his jail cell.

Many times, murderers are let out of jail only to kill again. This has happened over and over again. Personally I think Vick will stay clean because he now knows what's at stake. What happens when a criminal is sentenced for any crime is totally up to the states and the courts. They don't all function the same. That makes things unfair and we all know it. But just because Vick spent time in jail means the general public will forgive and forget what he did. It just isn't going to happen. I can't forget the holocaust, or slavery or people dying for a cause because I make it my business to learn as much about those events as I can. In this case I've learned more about the dogfighting world than I ever wanted to learn. Now that I know about it, I am more apt to speak out and support efforts to end it forever. For this reason the Michael Vick case has served a very useful purpose and will always be used as a reason to continue pursuing the capture and arrest of dogfighters everywhere. But I will never get the images of dogs being tortured out of my mind and it doesnt' matter whether Vick becomes a saint or goes back to his old ways. It has never been about him....it's about those dogs and the cruelty many still endure because of people like Vick.

You might want to read the first 5 posts in this thread. Then come back and tell me how he was/is a "far lesser threat to society".

If charlie Manson got paroled, would you feel comfortable with him being ur neighbor?
vick didn't make a mistake or use poor judgment.he mutilated, brutalized animals who couldn't fight back.
The real kicker is he loved watching them suffer.Made him feel like God.he is a sociopathic,psycopath.a dangerous human.

Pointdexter also did everything he could to protect vick from the feds.maybe Eric holder and the black panthers have a job opening .
no justice for vicks attrocities.

Anybody watch that show on Animal Planet, Dogfighting Investigation? It was quite interesting. There was a woman, in disguise, who had been busted for dogfighting. She told the story of how dogfighters routinely hung, bodyslammed, drowned, electrocuted and beat dogs to death, just like Michael Vick did. Seems the "big time" dogfighters started using these methods instead of just shooting the losing dogs. Apparently, people involved in the larger dogfighting ventures are descending into a type of depravity not previously known about. It didn't start with Michael Vick. His case just brought attention to what really goes on within that low life world. Also, thanks to the Vick case, all dogfighting, breeding and selling dogs for the purpose of dogfighting is now a felony in all 50 states. Just attending a dogfight is a misdemeanor. Many lawmakers have been trying for years to get laws made tougher regarding dogfighting and animal abuse with very little results. At the time of Vick's arrest, only 6 states had made dogfighting and other related issues a felony. Since his arrest lawmakers finally passed legislation make it a felony. Do we owe Vick gratitude? Nope. He is just one of many. The only good thing is that he was the only person participating in that sordid world arrested and sent to jail who was rich and famous, which is why we now know a lot more about dogfighting and its brutal, deviant world than we ever did. But I don't think we can relax yet, until dogfighting and animal abuse is ended for good.

Nobody is questioning the depravity of the dog fighting culture. It is a serious problem that needs to be dealt with.

I f I had to chose between Vick or Manson as my next door neighbor it would be a no brainer. Vick was never implicated in any human murders as Manson was.

I have no quarrel with what you posted here. I was against Vick being allowed to return to the NFL and my already low opinion of the Eagles was lowered another notch when they signed Vick. Now that he is back in football, we will just have to accept it. BTW, I am not so sure he was an upgrade over Donovan McNabb at QB. I can forgive what he did if he has truly repented of his actions, but I never will forget.
