I agree you are 100% correct!
There are so many other things to worry about! I am sure Vick is sorry for his mistakes--It is time to let go and move on--How do you feel about this criminal? Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff is placed under house arrest his A.. should be in JAIL .........
Rehabilitation--Why have it if you are not going to give a person a 2nd chance. I am sure many of the people who cry the loudest have done far more acute crimes... I will NOT knock a man when he is down. I love DOGS, would never hurt a dog! Although, my granddaughters ShiPoo, did something that made me very, very upset. I forgave & moved on.....
VICK will not repeat himself.....He has paid enough! give the man a 2nd chance.
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE...Think positive!

And you are "getting over" all of the other crap he has pulled in his career? He is a constant problem, and will continue to be a constant problem for whatever team he's a part of.

When someone is convicted of a sex crime, we don't just "get over it" and forget about - their name is kept on a list and they are limited as to where they can live...it's a lifetime thing. I'm not comparing these two crimes, just as I wouldn't compare a finacial crime to dogfighting. But Michael Vick was involved in a vicious, cruel, inhumane lifestyle and I don't believe that a decent human being could ever be involved in such a thing. I don't ever care to lay eyes on the man again, especially not playing for my hometown team.

There have been MANY convictions for dogfighting, and the penalty in Georgia is 1 to 5 years for the first offense - not "up to" 5 years - and 5 to 10 years for the second offense.

"WHATEVER"

Long live the WASHINGTON REDSKINS AND THE BALTIMORE RAVENS

Do not have time to agree or disagree. That is your problem, I will never hold on to anger, it is nonproductive a waste of energy that could used doing things that are constructive---You are entitle to your opinion and I am entitle to mine---Holding on to Hate, Anger is not one of the things I choose to do. BTW, it is easy to point a finger at others without looking in the back of our own closet--I know you are not perfect. My recommendations are classes for Anger Management
Your hometown team



THE BOTTOM LINE: Calm down, take a chill pill let hate and anger go....

Not on a dime. As a die hard life long fan of the Blessed Eagles, why would you want this thug in the lineup. McNabb is getting up in sports years and has many nagging injuries, however with this said McNabb is not the main issue with the constant chocking year after year, it is the offensive line. McNabb is one of the largest QB's in the league, but after spending year after year and down after down on his back drilled into the turf, you cannot expect grand performance.

Vick for the Eagles. Outside the fact that he should not allowed in the league along with any other felon for that matter, if he is again, make it the Cowboys or Bengals. At least they have full time parole officers on staff

Blame McNabb all you want but he was and with the proper line will still be a good QB. He is a good man, loves his Momma, eats his Chunky Soup, and obeys the law Wanting Vick for the Eagles, then you are no true fan. You must be one of the private weather protected suite yuppies. Come to the 700 level with the real fans!

Who is the Deacon?
Do I detect a bit of anger in your fonts?
