    Vick is everything that is wrong with the NFL. I love football, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to enjoy the NFL.

    The NFL and NBA players are just a bunch of criminals and thugs that would be in jail if it wasn't for the sport they play in...

    Isn't he hurt? That doesn't seem like he did anything wrong this time other than getting into the news for being on the receiving end of what he used to call a little roughhousing with his dogs.

    I'm really tired of the criminality that we live with because of football. At least when the jocks were terrorizing the high school, you knew they weren't going anywhere and you would be rid of them in a few years.

    Was I the only one that went to a high school where the football players had an elevated view of themselves and yet they lost to every podunk team around?

    I did tutor two football players while I was in college. The one who was back up quarterback (I think he ended up starting half a season or so in his four years for a losing record), I tried and tried 3-4 hours a week, but I think he still ended up having to repeat remedial math. Oh yeah, and the 2nd degree sexual assault conviction he had before coming to college sort of got forgotten about.

    The other (beginner algebra) seemed smart enough, just lazy. Oh and in his junior year or so, he apparently beat up a couple of kids when he wasn't allowed into a frat party but after he got released from jail, no one (not even the victims) felt like testifying against him in court (the DA got on the news for a week or two about how disappointed he was in society) so he didn't serve any time and I don't think he even missed any games.

    Yeah, I know my N=2 for the number of big time college football players I've spent much time with, but neither of mine seemed to be classy guys.

    I am not a drunk. You take that back or I will have a college football player beat you up.

    I've had one try before, but the idiot tried to do it during intramural water basketball. Rest of his team got a good laugh at the results of watching a "tough guy" freaking out hanging on the side of the pool after I took him to the bottom for a bit.

    He bought me a beer and apologized afterwards. Freaking Civil Engineering major too. Talk about dumb.

    I partied with the rugby players in college for a little while, and they always seemed smarter and had more integrity than the football players.

    I have pets and hate what he did to his dogs. But the man went to jail for it (and not the time already served variety), lost his big contract, mega endorsements, and valuable playing time. I think he paid his due and he is keeping a low profile. Come on, people had suffered less for killing people.

    I think his sentence was to light, but he did serve the time and everyone deserves a second chance to make up for their mistakes.

    And I love dogs more than people, active with local shelters and long ASPCA member.

    F him. I still cheer every time he gets injured, which is fairly frequently thankfully.

    He didn't do one second of time for what he did to the dogs. Until he does, I'll root for his demise.

    Nice attitude, I will never root for him or his team, but I would also never root for someone to get hurt.

    Only a lowest, real POS would do that.

    So and eye for an eye type of retribution is the only form of punishment?

    I repeat...

    He didn't do one second of time for what he did to those dogs. All his charges and time served were for gambling violations. The corrupt, POS prosecutor in VA let him off scott free on the animal cruelty charges.

    The end does not justify the means but I think you should consider that a side effect of his ordeal shines a big light on the issue of dog fighting and helped educate people on this issue, as well as the fall out (legally) so it might help prevent further abuse. Plus he also helped the various entities in participating on the education after he was released from jail (not sure about his sincerity but he is out there with the various organization in promoting their cause.) I have seen his face plastered on the side of DC Metro Bus on the issue of animal cruelty.

    Plus he knows that he will be forever judged by other for this issue and he knows that is how people thinks when people sees him public.

    And just think how much more convincing his cautionary tale would be if he was doing all of that from his jail cell in the state pen. As it is, yeah, not so much. It's the same message it's always been... If someone powerful (rich) enough thinks you can get them ahead, you can get away with anything.
