Vick Sentencing Fair or Not
As you know Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 mon. in prision with 3 yrs. probation for the dogfighting case. I like Vick and animals. but to me got what was coming to him. A superstar athlete on the rise just to crashing down on a dumbass decision. What does everyone else think.

23 months is not that big of a deal. It's not the jail time I'd be worried about. He really does not have a career after his jail time anyway.

His career is essentially over, which is fine considering what he did

He's only going to be 29 when he gets out, I would be suprised if someone doesnt take a chance on him. I dont know if he will like the minimum salary that they are going to offer him though.

As you might have heard, the severity of his sentence was based on him not being totally honest with the feds and smoking weed while on bail.

maybe he and some fellow prison inmates could form a football team to challenge the prison guards

wow just found out if he would've confessed when the investigation first started he would've been a jail for only 1 day.

He should go to Jail for life for what he did. I have read some of the sick gruesome details. Someone who tortures animals like that should not be allowed to live, but puting him to death would be to easy.

Basically they have said he will get out 3 month early for good behavior which will have him out by june of 09. I have also heard if the place hes at gets over crowded he could get released even earlier(not sure how true that is). Does he still have a career when he gets out, with out a doubt he will get signed with a team after he gets out. The question is at what position and if he will be decent enough to make the team.

Without a doubt he will get signed ? Why are you so certain about this ?

Just rememeber this, the guy smoked weed while on probation and failed his drug test, seriously, you can't stand in the face of a judge like a man and do some stupid crap like that and not expect a harsher sentence than your peers who weren't so blatently stupid. I still can't believe he did that

I'm not going to say he didn't deserve this 23 months. However, I just think its funny to see the EXPLOSION of hatred coming from society for him killing dogs, when everyone tends to just brush past human on human murders. There wouldn't have been as much media hype if he was being tried for murder. Ray Lewis didn't have much coverage when he was accused of murder. But because its animals (And therefore PETA) it got turned into this huge deal. I just think its sad that Americans care more about dogs than another human life.
*I just have to clarify that I love dogs. I would be steaming mad at anyone who even thought about harming my dog. I am in no way demeaning the lives of the dogs that Vick killed. Just making a point.

That is in the wild and they have more of a chance than this guys "pets". Its just disgusting.

i love animals but i have to agree with u on this one. I mean Rafer Alston of the Houston Rockets slit some guys throat during the summer and is starting and has yet to miss a game. But we in society care just as much for the loss of another kind as we do ours. So they should be treated the same way.

of course he'll come back. in great athletic shape in fact. he'll be able to play till he's bout 40. the problem is which team is willing to deal with all the hysteria that surrounds him. More than likely the Falcons won't accept him back.

I think they ought to demote him back to college ball, and make him play for the Bulldogs

23 months isnt enough. He should be thrown in a pit with another asswipe like himself and they should be forced to fight to the death.
