Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, Michael Vick, convicted of heinous acts against animals by running a dog-fighting ring, was just signed to the Philadelphia Eagles, after serving 18 months in jail. As a result of his crimes, he lost a $135 million dollar contract with the Falcons, but now he will be "awarded" with a $6.5 million dollar 2-year contract with the Eagles.
Vick, having served his time in prison, now says that he is a "changed man," having grown up witnessing older men running dog fights since the age of 8. Growing up in the projects, he didn't think anything was wrong with that, and he admitted that he "didn't have the courage" to cease his own dog-fighting ring.
If Pete Rose isn't allowed in the NBL Hall of Fame (for merely gambling), then why should Michael Vick be allowed back into the NFL, and earn millions after raping and murdering numerous dogs when they lost a fight? A fight that he arranged and "trained" them for? You be the judge.
