    I think he's served his time, and as long as he shows remorse and a willingness to HELP the community in the future his story can be a good one...in the long run.

    It can show people (kids) who have already made bad decisions...that you can get a second chance, that one bad choice is not the end of your life.

    Yeah tell me about. Whether people want to admit it or not, race is definitely an issue in this matter. It's hard enough for the black QB in the NFL. They are already demanded to do more as it is. No excuse, but this is part of some people's thinking. And then when one of the high profile ones gets into trouble, does his time, and shows remorse, people still don't want to give him a second chance. Itis pathetic. If Peyton Manning did the same thing, he'd be welcomed back with open arms. Just looking at it from a different angle. And this angle is certainly debatable</P>

    Fully.

    If he was fighting alligators, nobody would've cared. But because it's dogs, some people think he should be electrocuted. He did his time. People need to get a grip.
    We need our coaches to assign playing time based on something other than player salary.

    No, I don't think it is debatable, there is an angle with FAME and being made an example out of because of it, but there is no room for the race card in this discussion...no backing for it what so ever.

    Not sure if thats illegal, do you know anyone with alliagtors. I know they belong in the wild and dogs are residential. If one of those trained killers got loose and ate someones kid it wouldnt be funny. Anyway I agree, like it or not the legal system has run its course, and we give second chances in our society, so people need to realize that.</P>

    I'm not blaming the race card. Just bringing it up as a topic. And yes there is room for it. I know it's a sensitive deal, but I really don't mind talking about it. </P>

    I've never been one to shy away from a sensitive topic, I really just don't see any possible way that it correlates to this situation.

    Wanna play it from the otherside? This roony rule is ridiculous imho, and the fact that they are trying to swing it for GM's is a horrible Idea...these teams are privately owned and I'm sorry...I find it VERY hard to believe with the success of Black Coaches in the league over the last few years (tomlin anyone?) that any owner in his right mind would allow a coachs skin color to effect his decision on whats best for his own team.

    It's borderline reverse racism.
