Much like anyone else on the street, he should go to prison. Does the NFL have a prison team? If so, then I don't care. If not, then it would be pretty hard to run while shackled.

Do sins affect one's ability to play football? I don't know the answer to this, but I'm a mighty terrible football player myself.

No, sports are about honor, integrity, esprit de corps among other things and when you bring discredit to it, you should not be allowed to play. I think we've drifted away from this so much and focused on money and performance to a point that they might as well all be prison teams.

I understand that including such terrible people in these sports will (as it should) hurt the support of fans. Perhaps professional sports should look more into taking more preventative measures against bringing in immoral athletes.

If he would have came clean when everything first went down I'd say maybe because I think people deserve another chance at times.
He straight up lied to the commisoner and owner of his team. The same owner who pushed him around in a wheel chair. Also for beeing un-explainably stupid. He was set to make 130mill over 10 years. Why the **** would you need to gamble and make a buisness of somthing thats illegal?

i dont think he should play either. guys dream of playing in the nfl their entire lives. some guys would even play for 100,000 a year when they can make so much more just b/c they love the game.
its a privilage and when you blow it like that and do something that terrible you dont deserve to have another chance.
millions of people go for jobs on wallstreet that pay less that what vick is paid. how many of them would still have their job after spending time in jail?
its complete bullsh!t that its even up for debate.

if youre saying ban me b/c i voted yes to him playing its b/c the last thing i typed before i set the pole up was "or has he blown it and does he deserve to be gone for good?"
so with that in my head i voted yes.
im more offended of what he did to the dogs that did not "perform"
i love dogs and have a black lab currently and if anyone did that to my dog i would ****ing kill them.

they let tyson fight again and artest and steven jackson are still in nba. i personally dont think he should play again but with everything it comes down to money. if the nfl thinks he can sell seats he'll play again- after 3 year suspension.

i voted yes because i think he should be able to play again IF he does the time for the crime! If he does no time then fck him!

Well punishment for the violation through our own legal system is already assumed and I think he should still not be able to play afterwards. there are many jobs out there that will let you go even if you're proven innocent in a court of law, just by bringing discredit on the employer.

yeah i think i change my mind, i dont think he should be able to play because it is gambling. Who knows if he will gamble away some NFL games too. Plus he was the idiot that took the chance doing something stupid like that when he already was a big star and making millions. He blew it. Can you say has been?

My answer would be NO, but I believe once you did the time for your crime, you should have a 2nd chance to have a life.
What i've noticed not once has vick came out and made an apology.
Even if you did are you sorry for getting caught or you truly sorry for killing probably atleast 100 dogs.
All the dogs on your property are going to be killed because how you raised them.

Vick isn't going to be playing NFL anymore. The worst thing a team can get is bad press for a personal action one of their players made. Even though it is just one individual, it tarnishes the whole teams image/perception.
I never got why these morons, celebs/sports players do such stupid things with as much money as they make. They literally piss away opportunities they get.

I say Hell No. I hope he loses his entire career and all of his endorsements. I was angry towards him at first but then I saw the Real Sports on HBO about dogfighting and that put me over the edge.

Yeah because for Vick living an honest life while making a sh;tload of money isn't quite good enough. He felt the need to strive a bit further and just start dogfighting/gambling.....he dosen't deserve sh;t. He's just a moron who threw away what he had.

I was a huge Vick fan, and I say no. I live 20 mins from VA Tech and spent over a year working at Lane stadium Saw Vick play several times. Now I had to explain to my son that one of heroes is a scumbag. They are circling petitions to remove his jersey from being retired we were the one of the first to sign. Both of the Vick brothers wasted away a huge amount of talent it just baffles me they could be that stupid.
