    Isnt almost cruel and unusual punishment
    I'm not of fan of dog fighters, but Vick took a hit on the salary side of 50M+, plus maybe what...100M in endorsements.

    And it was a "well deserved" hit that that Falcon's owner Arthur Blank gave him by kicking his "serial animal killer's" *** to the curb.

    But then the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jerks (two classless organizations) fed him many more millions, as if he only hit a couple of dogs on their butts with a rolled up newspaper.

    Michael Vick should still be working for Arthur Blank today... IN THE HARDWARE SECTION OF A HOME DEPOT!!!!!!!!!!!

    This sums it up best, we can't crucify Vick for eternity. He was convicted and did his time.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong..

    Vick actually went to prison after pleading guilty to a federal conspiracy charge of bankrolling the dog fighting operation. He served 18 months of a 23-month sentence at Leavenworth federal prison.

    So, despite the claims by Vick’s supporters that “he has paid for his crimes,” he actually has not.
    The truth is that Michael Vick has never spent a day in prison for animal cruelty. He merely went to prison for financial crimes.

    This was their best option I'd guess, how much time would he spend it jail for animal cruelty? The route they chose had a bigger bite. He did "pay" for this, by the tens of millions! I'm sure he feels it wasn't worth it.

    So you think Vick regrets ever being involved in dog fighting? You think he's a changed man after "paying" for his crimes? (Your words, not mine.) Well, guess again.

    I can't speak to his changed animal rights view, I do believe he regrets dog fighting when it cost upwards of 100M+. Again, as far as his moral compass??? Who knows, I hope so.

    Do you want him to get the death penalty or something? LOL
