    "May well have"..... is a qualifier by which I meant some people may think he paid his debt. I don't.....& I do indeed think the Eagle franchise should pay a monetary penalty for....stupidity if nothing else. (why offend a potentially significant number of fans by signing such a controversial player who wasn't that good in the first place??)

    Well...at this point, it appears that roughly 2/3rds of the poll responders agree that the Eagles games should be boycotted. I suggest making our feelings known to them, (Eagles)...THE NFL...& your local NFL team & TV stations.

    I can only imagine what will happen when the real "Animal Rights" loonies start on this!

    The Eagles have every right to sign whomever they want. I have every right to show my dislike of them giving a convicted Felon 1.6 million dollars by not watching their games.

    Vick has paid his debt to society, but that does not mean that he is owed a high paying job, or that I have to support the place that hired him.

    You have to be kidding. You think they didn't consider the blowback. I would bet they had this professionally polled before the decision was made. Your little pissant poll here is irrelevant.

    Hmmmm.........You sound like a very angry man. (Getting all pissed off on a SPORTS topic???) I suggest some warm milk & cookies & perhaps an anger management class would help.

    BTW...Can you describe what exactly a "Pissant Poll" is?






    Let's play a game here:

    I wonder if I can possibly guess what your political affiliation may be????

    Liberal Democrat??....Nah
    Independent???.....Nah
    Moderate??...Nah

    I give up?!?!?...Whatever could it be???

    If you look it up in the dictionary, it has your picture and says 'see those started by this chick'.

    I know a lot of football fans, and many are like me. I'm happy Vick got a team. He spent near 2 years in prison, went bankrupt, he paid his dues. The NFL tacked on some extra suspension for his actions, and when that's up; it's done. I think he is reformed in that he'll never again be part of dog fighting. Hell, didn't PETA even say that Vick has done a good job in reformation and in his service to them? It's done and over. He didn't DUI kill someone, he did his jail time; it's over. I think he deserves a second chance and the opportunity to show that he has changed and will improve his personal behavior. Good for him I say. I don't really like Philly in general, but the Eagles are going to give him a chance and that's fine by me. I'm not going to be down on the guy now, maybe if he does something again in the future I can agree with stiffer penalties. But for the time being, he's done all that he needed to do and does seem honestly remorseful over what he did.

    I hope that he can get back into the game and show that he still has some good years of competition ahead of him.

    What a clever comeback! (this chick, eh?)

    (If your anger is that close to the surface, what are you like when a subject of any real importance is discussed?)

    I only hope you don't have a firearms permit.

    I would not boycott. Vick is a great athlete and a less than stellar human being. When I watch sports, I do not watch because the people playing are great human beings. I watch because they are great athletes and they entertain me.
