Incorrect.

No one here has claimed he should not be allowed to play football. He is doing so.

A parallel is Vick will never make money again as a spokesperon or representative for some brand - unless maybe its some sort of "outlaw" brand seeking controversy. But as far as mainstream endoresements, it will never happen again.

Pretty much like Tiger. The world moves on, and there may be a deal here or there. But not many. Whats done is done.

See Pete Rose doing lots of endorsements do you? PeeWee Herman maybe? Perhaps OJ before he actually went to jail? (And he wasnt even convicted of anything.)

Given Vick's history of classy behavior I wouldn't doubt that at all.

you miss the point. i didn't say he wasn't remorseful. i'm saying he's probably no longer concerned with people who won't forgive him....he continues to enjoy a successful career while the rest of the world insists on hating him. he's apologized and isn't losing any sleep over your anger...so why not just let it go?

I couldn't care less about Vick. I'm just amazed at the number of people who can't sleep until everyone agrees that their hero deserves really super-duper special treatment and that everybody better forgive him for whatever he has done and quit thinking bad things about him.

You would think that by 2010 folks might give up on the victimization game.

That I would agree with, which is the reason he got in the mess he did to begin with, he did not care.

Don't forget fishing. Fisherman do some mean stuff to fish for example using life bait.

The endorsements will happen again fro mike Vick. If people are considering Sarah Palin for President in 2012 that just shows the intelligence of the masses. The masses love hype and a come back kid. All Mike has to do is just win. The NFL loves him because he is making them money.

Hey this is a "Christian Nation". The man said he was sorry. What more could he do? "He/She who is without sin cast the first stone." "Do The Right Thing". "_________ Betta Have My Money." "Pimpin Ain't Easy"..Sorry I got off on a quote tangent.
