    Would You Boycott Phill Eagles Games After They Signed Vick?

    Two statements first:

    1. I am not an anminal rights nut
    2. I am a dog owner/dog lover


    It's a free market & the Philadelphia Eagles have every right to help their bottom line by signing anyone they want.
    That being said, I have every right to boycott their games & products sold by their sponsors.(I am a NE Patriots fan but intend to communicate with the Patriots my intention to boycott any game they play against the Eagles, not watch any Patriot vs Eagles games on TV & boycott any sponsors of these games.


    Anyone wish to express their comments?

    NO. He did his time. His debt to society is paid. That doesn't mean I wouldn't smile if a rottweiler ate his privates, but he's got a clean slate with me.

    I guess people just need to decide if he's paid enough for them personally. He's paid his debt to the state, so he's free to start trying to get his life back and earn a living. If Philly wants to sign him, that's up to them. It will not be worth the distraction and headache, though. I can tell you that. I would not sign him for that reason.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Trick question, I hate the Eagles anyway and think Vick is the perfect fit for that fan base, so I wasn't going to watch them to begin with.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I voted No by the way. They have every right to sign him. It's not smart, but that's a different issue entirely.

    That sentiment's probably going to fizzle out quickly.

    As much as I think what he did was despicable, he paid his time and debt. No need to scarlet letter him.

    If any out there feel as I do, (that the Eagles decision was a poor one from almost any angle you view it & should not be rewarded) I would recommend contacting your local NFL team & advising them of your intention to boycott any game THEY may have scheduled to play against the Eagles as well.
    This is strictly a free market problem & can easily be solved by using the free market tool of sponsorship boycott.

    Michael Vick may well have paid for his horrible "Errors", but the Philadelphia Eagle franchise should pay for their horrible error in signing him, in my view.

    No, as Catz mentioned he has done his time.

    On the otherhand I already boycott most sports. I will not watch, pay, or purchase merchandise for most professional sport. I believe they pay most athletes far more then they are worth and I will not support them.
