    Michael Vick's new job

    Looks like current players aren't the only the only athletes to benefit from a school's boosters... Owner of the company is a VTech booster. Any bets as to whether or not Vick ever swings a hammer?

    Re: Michael Vick's new job

    He is lucky I'm not his judge. I'd tell him if he wants manual labor you can scoop up dog crap at the local animal shelter and then order him to do it. Somehow, Call me crazy but somehow I just don't see Mike in a 8-5, $10 per hour job.

    He is lucky to have a great job created for him. Count your blessings, man.

    Re: Michael Vick's new job

    Speaking of Vick Would you take a chance on him for your NFL team?

    Yeah, if he showed me anything in workouts I would. In my opinion, once a man serves his prison term, he has done his time, and he deserves a second chance.

    Do you mean that in the innuendo sense or literal sense?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he already serve his time? If these were people he was accused of mistreating and killing, would you be just as outraged? I doubt it, which is the really sad thing IMO.

    We live in a society today that values animal life over human life. I overheard a co-worker the other day say if anyone harmed his dogs, he would kill them. Great moral compass displayed in that statement.

    Not me, but not because of the dog fighting thing. Michael Vick will never, assuming he comes back to play, win a Super Bowl, ever.

    Stupid argument. If it were people he were mistreating and killing, he wouldn't have gotten out of prison.

    The argument wasn't about prison, but rather people's level of outrage over what he's done.
