That makes it acceptable?  Because it was acceptable in your culture?  That is an amazing comment. IT IS AN ILLEGAL ACTIVITY.  GET THAT THROUGH YOUR DENSE SKULL.

As to GoBlue74, if people served their time and then their done, how come ur not out their fighting against laws requiring sex offenders to register for life.  One would think that if a 25 y/o male people a 16 y/o girl and serves 10 years, then he would be done with his crime as he served his time.  Not true, rather this sex offender has to post his name and info on the web and w/govt agencies so he can be tracked.  I dont see any one crying foul over that.  Personally, Ill take the horny guy who wanted to darn that cute 16 y/o over a guy that tortures animals for kicks.  What about u?  Which neighbor u want?  Atleast, my daughter could be told to stay away from my neighbor.  The dog isnt so lucky.

You are looking at it all wrong. Of course he should have to register on the sex offender list and Vick should never be allowed to own a dog again. The debate is if Vick should be able to get a job or not. If that sex offender that you were talking about worked at McDonald's before he went to jail you wouldn't have any problem with him getting his job back there would you. So why are you so against Vick getting his job back. If your local butcher was caught doing the same things to dogs and when he got out of Jail would you say that he could never be a butcher again? I'm not trying to support Vick i just don't like the double standard.

Looked down at my nutsack like you had suggested and seen you swinging from one of my pubs...Get the darn off...I mean wow, to qoute me twice...I must have really gotten under your skin with that one. As for your questions...No, I do not celebrate Mike Vick(who told you I have kids?) You assume too much...For the second, no I do not believe that it is appropriate behavior to intentionally hurt/torture animals...I never had made such a suggestion(you don't know me) That is sick garbage no matter who does it and I am glad he got caught...But to insist that people can't change for the better is just illogical...And I am not assuming that he will....but that is up to him. Not you all!!!! And if he is given a second chance in the league you'll just have to deal with it, won't you?!!

i didn't say it was acceptable! i said it was a common sport. so you havnt seen anyone participating in dogfighting? we all know it's illegal.  tell me something i don't know.  people make mistakes, just like several NFL players have done.  you live and learn from your mistakes and you move on from it. im sorry but he didn't go out there and murder and kill a human.  im sorry but that's just how i feel.  yes, it was wrong and he's being punished for it...MOVE ON!  Let's talk about current events..

if he couldnt play football he'd serve a lot more time in jail than he will when this is all said and done.  sure he deserves a 2nd chance, in my own personal view the only people who dont deserve one will murderers, rapists, and child molesters.  personally i do have a problem with him having the chance at making millions of dollars with a criminal record.  but i guess thats the difference between an athlete and an average person.

Look at what him and his brother are and what they get into. He doesnt deserve garbage. He had everything given to him and he screwed it all up. Its rediculous what NFL players get away with. Look at what pacman, Ray lewis, Mike Pitbull Vick and others get away with. These pieces of thug trash need to be out of the league and go on with there bullshit. Buress gone. Pacman gone. Matt Jones gone. Vick gone. None of these people deserve a second chance when you had millions of reasons not to do the things they chose to do. They all need to go play in the UFL...... By the way i was the biggest burress fan and also from dallas and really welcomed Pacman.

Your expressed and implied sentiments on this subject and those made by others in this thread similar to yours are anti-social, sickening and borderline socio-pathic.  You don't think dogfighting is such a big deal.  American society obviously disagrees with you given the harsh penalties federal and state courts can impose on those convicted for such crimes.

As an aside, the torturing and killing of animals were common activities for those individuals who later became socio-pathic mass murderers.   

FACT - Michael Vick tortured and killed dogs.

FACT - Associates of Michael Vick stole other people's pets and used them to train Michael Vick's dogs.

The only people who seem to sympathize with Michael Vick seem to fall under the following categories:

- past/current/wannabe criminals

- people who feel Michael Vick is being oppressed because of the color of his skin

- fans of his who are so enamored with his football talent they are willing to excuse his failures as a human being
