I can accept the fact that Vick was raised around such repulsive behavior.

BUT, to excuse a college educated man that was eventually exposed to the much broader culture from acts like hanging, drowning, starving and smashing dogs into a bloody pulp for not "performing" to his sick standards is beyond reproach. THIS is the exact type of behavior that serial killers tend to start out with. In my - and the large portion of society at large's opinion, this is nothing less than a pathological mental disorder on full display.

Hopefully he has realized the evil he has displayed and inflicted. However, I honestly in my heart don't believe it for a minute. I hope to God he proves me wrong.
Stop quoting me bro.

Miami Dolphins took a pass on him, I wonder if it was because of his dog fighting issues...I applauded them for their moral fiber, because I felt that what he did was terrible. But, as a pure business decision, it was a bad move. That is the problem when you do business, and try to think with high ethical standards, it is not always the best choice to choose a high moral ground.

What is funny, is the attitude most people have towards dog fighting, they are either against it, have no opinion, or actually have participated in it, and see no issues with it. I don't know if dog fighting is a cultural issue, but most of my black friends have done dog fighting or gone to dog fights.

Either way, Micheal Vick did his time, the world needs to move on. Should he have been kicked out of the NFL for it? I thought so, but that is what I think, that the NFL should have more moral fiber...but of course, they think business, rather than ethics, which, if Miami had done the same thing...we would be doing pretty good right now. Something to think about...good or bad...

Seriously? Dog fighting doesnt exist within the white commnity. No one I know has ever even considered going to one.

I totally agree, but it is just different shades of still wrong and avoidable. My point wasn't that they were the same thing.

Thumbs down Thug

Michael Vick was a thug, and remains a thug...

If he couldn't throw a football, he'd be a janitor. Maybe. More likely, he'd be in prison for something else, besides dog fighting.
