I'm absolutley shocked that Nike would sign him. There's a heck of a lot more dog lovers out there than Eagles fans. I cant see how this doesnt hurt a company like Nike more than help them.

Unless of course Vick's deal with Nike is a Jersey Shore Abercrombie and Fitch thing were the sponsor is paying Vick NOT to wear their logos!

It's one thing for him to get minor local endorsement deals in the Philly area (Philly fans would most likely root for Osama bin Laden if he could have a 110 QB rating for them) its quite another for a convicted dog killer to get a national sponsorship deal.

It won't last the whole season, but the eagles may win some early games because the officials may be giving them the jordanlike calls- because of the whole dream team thing. The game against the browns, they were given two calls from the refs that went their way. An off. pass interference penalty in favor of asomugha that nullified a big pass play. And another on a roughing the qb penalty that nullified vicks interception.

Hunters shoot innocent animals that can't defend themselves just to hang them up as trophies. Farmers kill animals for financial gains. At the end of the day those animals are dead. It really matter why or how they were killed. The point is Mike Vick served his time and he has a right to move on with his life. You should try moving on with yours.

Farmers kill animals to feed people...and not domesticated animals.

Vick tortured animals for the sole purpose of entertaining himself.


If you can't see the moral distinction between those two, I feel very sorry for you.

Yes, Vick served his time in jail...he should have because he was a criminal.

He hasn't "turned his life around" because he's employed again...he simply went back to work after getting out of jail. Is Plaxico Burress a "great redemption story of a man who has re-made himself" too? What about Lawrence Phillips? Would he be a hero if he came back? Simply returning to his job is nothing to praise him for. Why don't we put some more attention on those who have stayed on the right side of the law, done good things without a judge telling them too and have been on the field instead of in jail? London Fletcher comes to mind.

London Fletcher is a great guy and should be praised as such. That said Vick and Plax both did more than just get thier jobs back. They were able to reenter society and act as proper citizens, so far at least.

Both are paying taxes and contributing in a positive manner. I can't excuse Vick's cruelty or Plax's stupidity, but both could have had their lives take a much different direction after jail.

Last time I checked cows, sheep, pigs and chickens are domesticated animals so farmers do kill domesticated animals. They arent pets but they are domesticated animals.

Well, since everything eventually dies, it really doesn't matter how it happens does it?

Yes - how and why living things are killed does matter. Brutal torture of animals or humans is wrong.

He has a right to move on with his life and no one is preventing him from doing so - hence the $100 Million. As I have said, merely "serving your time" is the beginning of redemption, not its end. I am slowly (very slowly) coming around to the belief that he may have actually changed. If he continues his good works and continues to say and do the right things after football goes away, I will believe it. Until then, the question will always remain (to me anyway) - Is he truly sorry? Or is he just saying the right things so he can keep playing ball? Having someone like Dungy in his corner counts a long way for me.

But, whatever, he plays for the Eagles so I don't need to justify or parse my hatred of him.

i dont see how someone who hates vick for killing dogs means they value a dogs life more than a humans. i hate vick for what he did, id boo and curse him given the chance. i think vick did enough time in jail, the sentence was fair imo, doesnt mean i cant hate the guy for what he did. doesnt mean vick will care one iota for how some skins fan or anyone feels about him. besides, he knowingly gives girls herpes, not cool either.

im pretty sure i stopped posting on here for awhile in a vick discussion a year or so ago b/c of peoples reactions on this subject.
Pretty much agree with most everything here.

The whole "valuing dogs over humans" argument is just BS. The value is reflected in the punishment. If Vick had done to humans what he had done to dogs, we would not be discussing his $100 Million contract. We would be discussing whether or not he should die.

In fairness, Vick has done more than just "return to work". He has spoken on the topic, worked with the SPCA, sought advice from people like Tony Dungy. I'll give credit where credit is due - he certainly seems to be working towards redemption. I, as you, just don't think his "redemption" really been tested yet. It easy to "do the right thing" when the world is all rosy for you, let's see what happens Vick is no longer in the limelight.

I suggest you, pet owners, and non pet owners get the f**k over it. The man has paid his debt to society. He has turn his life around. Let him live in peace.
Judging by your response and the extent of the justifiable, resulting "piling on", one can only assume you're having Michael Vick's love child?

i dont think this ends well for the eagles. the contract runs till he's 37, and he's still a small dude in NFL terms, and injury prone. I don't think he'll be nearly as good this year and don't understand why the eagles didn't wait.
