    Anyone that wants to watch an Eagles game is buying a service from the Eagles. What they do with that revenue is their business. If you don't like any of their business practices that much, don't buy their service. Otherwise its none of your damn business.

    you know, some guy got curb stomped to death outside of a Phils game recently.

    Curb-stompers are probably ok with dog fighting.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    There is no pill for that which afflicts chicks like you. There is no antidote once you have consumed the Kool-Aid.

    I wonder if you're going to boycott the Browns, or if the stick up your ass is only for Vick.

    Yes! Donte Stallworth killed a man, while doing the most irresponsible, reckless activity you can do. And he got 30 days in jail!!!! Apparently pit bulls' safety >>>>>>>>>>>>>> human life. It's ridiculous.

    Vick deserves another chance. He's made some dumb decisions throughout his life, but everyone deserves another chance. Since the Dolphins debuted it, I've been dying to see Vick in the Wildcat. He is going to be a serious problem in the NFC this year. Eagles vs. Jets in the Super Bowl, you heard it here. J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets!!

    By top of his sport I meant playing in the NFL. If football is all he knows (which would be a sad commentary on Virginia Tech), he could still earn a living as an assistant coach at some junior college, as a player in semi-pro ball or even as the guy who hands out the towels to the players who have not been convicted of violent crimes. I don't think he should automatically be allowed to step back into one of only 1700 slots in the NFL until he has proven what a changed man he is.

    He does not deserve a second chance. He, nor anynoe else, deserves a first chance. They have to earn any chance they get.

    He did not automatically step back in. The Phill Eagles, a private party, have decided it is in their best interest to have him playing for them. I highly doubt what he deserved was much of a factor for them.

    Totally different case with a total different set of facts. Here you go:

    1. Vick's criminal acts were numerous, intentional, on-going and pre-meditated.
    2. Stallworth committed a single criminal act. It was clearly stupid, but it was not intentional.
    3. Vick's victims were 100% innocent. Yes, they were dogs, but 100% innocent just the same.
    4. Stallworth's victim ran into the street and in front of Stallworth's car to catch a bus. People who run into the street are generally seen as contributing to their injuries, regardless of whether the person who hit them is drunk (i.e. if he was not in the street he would not have gotten hit).

    To make your silly comparison work Donte would have had to string an innocent person up and electrocute him, then get a 30-day sentence. Do you imagine he would get 30 days or do you think his sentence would have been worse than Vick's? Thanks for playing.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Vick served his time and apologized for his actions, so who cares about it anymore besides PETA?

    Apparently, based on the poll results, quite a few people.
