Let's stop the nit picking. Michael Vick faced the entire situation of the dog fights like a MAN. He DID NOT make excuses and took the punishment. Now he has settled his debts. What else can you expect from the man. I wish him well. Show the young man some respect.

I find this whole situation to be disgusting. The man is not repentent. Not at all. He is GREEDY and we are complicit in his sin. To pay an animal millions of dollars and for our children to look up to him turns my stomach. The Eagles will never win because of their sin you can mark my words.
Throw him to the dogs and let there be justice.

Where are our priorities in this country. We have a person who participated in dog fights;
which as a life-long dog owner, I know is wrong and he has paid the price...Where is the disgust with the person(s) who lied and caused thousands of American humans to be killed in Iraq and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi's to also be killed?

What should be our view of them?

It is amazing that we don't have the dog-loving level of compassion for the poor, the hungry, the uninsured, or for that matter other animals. Hunters don't receive the type of vilification that Michael Vick is receiving. I agree that what he did was terrible, but he paid his debt to society and continuing to make him pay a debt he no longer owes is wrong.

Don't think for a moment the Eagles signed Vick out of the goodness of their heart or for any Christian reasons. This is a team ruled by the bottom line, who will never keep an aging veteran for an extra season out of loyalty. So if Mr. Lurie signed him, he was looking ahead to the time when Vick could be the new QB, a younger, healthier, faster and cheaper model that he signed for bargain basement prices. Lurie could never resist a deal even if it could cause a lot of grief this season in divided loyalties.

Michael Vick seems genuinely grateful to have another chance at making millions as quarterback in the NFL. He's on the right track and doing pretty well thus far, he hasn't yet kicked or otherwise abused any animals since getting out of jail, but I would exercise caution around him if he were anywhere near my dog. Just sayin'.

To all the dog lovers and Vick haters. Lokk I'm a advid dog lover and dog's best friend. I'm not going to sit hear and say that the crime he committed wasn't horrific in anyway, but honestly, GET OVER IT! He recieved a penalty that was harrsher than a man that committed Manslaughter to a human being. Now life is life. He did his time. Now let the man do what he do best, play football. People are whining and complaining for something that they can't control. For a country slated on freedom and forgiveness, we make ourselves hypocrites in our own beliefs. Let live and Let be!
