I think Michael Vick is a disgrace to all human beings. He should be made an example of by punishing him with fines and jail time as well as throwing him off the team. This way other cruel "young"people will think twice before deciding this is a quick way to make money. We must protect these innocent animals from predators like Michael Vick and others like him who don't deserve a place among civilized people.

Michael Vick is the worst kind of human being! He should not be jailed or fined but taken out and beaten to death in the same manner he and others did to the innocent animals he has tourched!

A proper and fitting punishment would be for Michael to do community service at a dog shelter and learn compassion for these animals and life in general. Vick is not a lost cause.

I think denying him a right to earn a living is nonsense.

Who needs the NFL anyway? If it stopped tomorrow who is going to loose their job, car, house, etc.? We need more Black doctors, teachers, engineers, nurses, etc. Right now in 30 of our largest cities and metro areas less than 50% of young black will graduate high school. This is the lowest since the statistics began in 1940. When is the last time Vick took any of that money and enhanced the chances of out Black youth? Hell the $46,000 he had in that bag to bet on dogs would have put some smart but disadvantaged Black student through college. The multinational corporations along with the NFL and NBA have made "gods" out of in many cases nearly illiterate individuals for the sake of cashing in monetarily.

These people are about as far removed from the dreams and goals expressed by Dr. Martin Luther King as we are from the planet Pluto.

He can earn a living. Plenty of ex convicts have jobs. Minimum wage maybe, but for many Americans that's a living.

I didn't agree with jail time for betting on dogs or even organizing it but since it appears that he killed dogs, he should do at least a year in jail. That's how murderers get their start. See Jason Williams.

BTW, Has Jason Williams gone to jail YET for killing his limo driver?

I don't deny him a living, he can work at a 7-11 or hamburger joint! But he shouldn't be allowed to work among professional football players that know right from wrong. He deserves everything he is going to get and I hope that includes a life ban from the NFL. He knows he won't get anymore advertisement $$$$.

Michael Vick is a piece of sht. He should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The Federal prosecutor should be fired for incompetence for offering a plea deal to this creep. I hope the NFL is listening, ban this cretan for life and revoke his pension. Another celebrity gets off easy. Enough is enough. Either the government starts bringing these miscreants to justice or the people will.

Let's face it - with gambling and animal cruelty, his NFL is all but over. The idea he did what he did to these dogs won't be forgotten by fans anytime soon. What time is going to want him with all the bad press? Maybe the Raiders?

Lock up the pig in a pit with some really mean dogs and let them at him. What a creep, him and his friends.

Michael Vick is a disgusting example of a human being. I think he should be thrown into a pit with a pit bull. Have them fight it out to the end. If Vick performs poorly, the dogs should decide what to do with him.
This jerk, Vick had so much and he threw his life away, not to mention the suffering he has caused so many animals. Now even the ones that have survived will be euthanized. AS#$^@!!!!

The only thing that this "creature" cares for is his football career. While I hope both the state and feds put him in jail for a long long time, I will loose all respect for the NFL if they don't do what they can and ban him for life from the football field. The NFL will loose a tremendous amount of support and respect if they don't get strict and quit allowing thugs and criminals to play football. They need to send an message that there is no tolerance to any kind of bad behavior but especially for someone like Vick who shows no moral standards or respect for life. It makes me sick to my stomach to think that there is even a chance that he can play football and be a "role model" for young kids while brutally torturing innocent animals for his own personal pleasure. To all NFL personnel and prosecuting attorneys, please make sure that he is brought down and taken off the field forever!

What Vick did was disgusting - right up there with the burning of the pit bull.
