Defo's Thoguhts: Should we still be Angry at Vick?

When, if ever, should he get off the hook....... When the New York Jets signed Michael Vick to a one year deal to theoretically be their backjup quarterback, it triggered a maelstrom of negative response, with lifelong Jet fans vowing to never attend a game as long is Vick is a member of gang green. Vick, of course, was convicted of running a hideous dog fighting ring, involving the blatant torture of innocent animals under the guise of gambling and entertainment. Part of his defense of these appaling actions was that dog fighting was inherent in Vick's youthful culture, and should not be viewed with the same degree of outrage as someone who was merely.......torturing animals. While you may not be willing to buy that, it is a little surprising to see the outrage surrounding his move to New York. 19 months in Leavenworth, the public disgrace and humiliaton and loss of NFL time and cash were not enough punitive moves to satisfy everyone. Perhaps, that's as it should be for an unforgiveable act, but you just wonder of winning a few more games with Vick at the helm might, as is typical, erase some of this bitterness.......
