    What I find interesting is a hockey player punches a cab driver, and it is a really big deal to the fanbase. A football player and that would not even be blinked at. I think it is kinda sad.

    "May well have"..... is a qualifier by which I meant some people may think he paid his debt.

(why offend a potentially significant number of fans by signing such a controversial player who wasn't that good in the first place??)
    What's the man got to do to get a second chance? See Ikari's post for details.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    He does have a second chance. He is out of jail and has all the same options, and more, as most ex-cons. I just don't think it is a good idea for a sports franchise to put some one like him on TV. He still would have more options than most ex-cons...he has 2 years of college education after all.

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.
    Perhaps a "creature" that promoted, and made Money on the slaughter of animals has learned his lesson. That could happen. I believe him too Ikari.

    I have no problem with Vick playing football. Yes I’m a dog, cat, and horse lover, as I currently own several of them. However, he’s paid his debt to society and he seems to to be genuinely humbled and apologetic for his errors. It’s time to let bygones be bygones and to let him move on with his life.

    Hey, there's Money to be made. Why not hire a pervert that kills animals for "sport" and Money? The City of Philly does it all the time.

    I believe in actions, we'll see what he does. But from everything I've read and seen, he appears sincerely remorseful and will continue to work with organizations such as the Humane Society to promote better environments for animals.

    Lots of people f up, lots of people do things that maybe we on the outside say "well that's common sense", and lots of people can come back from those things; learn lessons and live a good life while making amends for what they have done. I'm not going to get on the "bash Vick" bandwagon because he served his time, he paid his dues, he seems like he really understands what he did wrong and is willing to make amends for that. If he carries through with it, great. If he ****s up again, well he ain't gonna get much sympathy from people. But I ain't god, I'm not perfect, I've messed up. And I'd like to think that if I've done something really bad that I could learn from those mistakes, pay my dues, and be allowed to carry on with my life a wiser and more proactive man on the issue. So say whatever you want, but you don't know what Vick has been through and you seem unwilling to give him the shot. I'll wait and see how he carries on, but I'm happy to see that he is getting his second chance.

    Vick says he has to live with 'shame' and 'embarrassment'
