The guy is going to get the crap beat out of him if a team picks him up. He won't even make it our of the preseason!!!

Amen brother. Vick was one of the most overrated QBs in the NFL.

well does this not prove that the wallet can buy anything including justice and your freedom and no real punishment in this world . The children of today need to be taught by the parents that we dont behave like that in a society . It takes a village to raise a child . I like that saying . And as a village I say we boycott the NFL this season and dont buy any tickets to football games and see how fast they uninstate him . I dont think it would work though cause that is in a perfect society and we dont live in one.

ummm you do realise that you are posting this in a DOG forum... with dog lovers venting about this individual who happens to be a public figure? My pop, an ex-marine is diehard football fan and even he is disgusted with Vick and won't be enthused to see him running around the field on Sundays. WILL be rooting for some serious Blitz TACKLES IF a team signs him!! Maybe that team with the guys getting arrested all the time....

NFL Contact Us

Someone needs to stand up for those dogs, and against what he did to send a clear example to all the other losers that think they can do this and get away with it.

It is a disgrace to this country and to our children growing up who follow sports to allow this monster to ever play ball again and make millions. Why give this subhuman a second chance? Only a few of those hundreds of dogs were lucky to escape this monster and get a second chance. Think about it......he slammed, burned, drowned, shot, hung, electrocuted and God only knows what else he did to those poor defenseless dogs. The only reason he stopped was that he got CAUGHT? This would still be going on and how many more dogs would have suffered.....hundreds and hundreds! These are horrendous acts of torture, never to be forgotten or forgiven!
How in the world can any compassionate human forgive him for this? Someone who does what he did to those dogs or any animal is, I am sorry.....mentally disturbed!
I pray for those dogs that did not make it out of that compound that they have found peace.
What kind of human would excuse and forgive Michael Vicks behavior? In my eyes they are also possibly capable of doing the same thing!
They need to add a course in the schools about how to treat and respect all animals!

So I am done reading all the comments so far and I have to say IGNORANCE is right after STUPIDITY and right after UNEDUCATED. We are not just talking about a man making two dogs fight. We are not just talking about a man who takes two dogs into a ring and dings the bell and says okay let's go guys and whoever beats the crap out of the other dog is the winner. We are talking about a PSYCHO, SICKO, DEMENTED, EVIL SUB HUMAN !!!! "Dog fighting" is NOT just about two dogs fighting which of course would be bad enough. We are talking about the training - using innocent puppies chained or tied up and other defenseless animals as BAIT so the dog that is TRAINING can TEAR IT APART and the unsuspecting BAIT animal cannot even defend itself. We are talking about FEMALE dogs being put in RAPE STANDS to have the male dogs mate with her. We are talking about half STARVING puppies so they will be AGGRESSIVE and want to KILL whatever poor animal they throw to it that cannot defend itself. We are talking about CHAINING, BEATING, STARVING defenseless dogs to do what the SUB HUMANS want them to do. We are talking about hours of torturous training on tread mills till the dog can hardly breath from exhaustion. We are talking about injecting dogs with steroids and other things to enhance their profile and ability to " fight ". We are talking about standing around and WATCHING two dogs rip each other apart while they SCREAM out in pain. We are talking about SUB HUMANS who have not an ounce of COMPASSION in their mind or body. The dog is nothing more than a $ SIGN. We are talking about SUB HUMANS who SHOOT, ELECTROCUTE, HANG, DROWN, STAB AND PICK UP A LIVING BREATHING CREATURE AND SLAM IT TO THE GROUND HOWEVER MANY TIMES IT TAKES TILL DEATH. Bait animals can include RABBITS, KITTENS, SQUIRRELS, RACCOONS, PUPPIES and any other poor creature that is around that they can use. BUT last year there was a huge BAIT DOG bust in northern Florida. These BAIT DOGS were chained on 3 feet of chain with NO SHELTER in rows. There were over 50 of them. They were repeatedly BEATEN AND HALF STARVED to make them completely SUBMISSIVE. So now, you can compare someone like this with an IDIOT who happens to drive drunk and hurt someone ??? There is no COMPARISON. MV did NOT make a mistake. This is not something that is " curable ". This is not a life style that is corrected in 2 years in jail. This is a SICKNESS OF THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL TO BE THAT COLD AND EVIL. And remember, the poor dogs that did NOT fight well enough were MURDERED for not performing. And the whole bottom line for ALL of this suffering of these poor animals is - M O N E Y These people have been
desensitized against the SUFFERING of anything that is living. They even allow small children at these " events ". Now how disgusting is that. And for anyone to think that this is in any way shape or form NORMAL is also very sick. You cannot compare this type of evil to other crimes. This is beyond evil. How do you teach someone compassion ?????????? And for LynnKK and NJKate - you two are unbeleivable. Typical stupid attitudes. This MV is a man with a BLACK HEART. Don't be fooled by his idiotic smile or his phoney pretense that he is " sorry ". The only thing he is sorry for is that he got caught. You can tell a lot by looking into a mans eyes. And I see no remorse there. Just that shady stupid smile of his because he thinks he has gotten away with his actions. Is he in for a surprise. Any team that would allow him to play with them sends a loud and clear message. Wake up people, this is a very sick demented person and ALL that do NOT see this dog fighting for what it really represents are just as sick !!!!!

His words will be empty in my eyes. He is just doing it because his lawyers advised him to so he can get his second chance to play ball again. BS! Let him be told he will never be allowed to play ball again and see if he still speaks out? Heck no! He cannot pull the wool over my eyes. Once a killer always a killer!
It is all a greedy game and those poor dogs suffered horrendous pain and deaths!
