Maybe, instead of the key to the city, they should have given him a dead dog's carcass.

Again and again we choose to honor those who have "reformed" but those who walk the straight and narrow? Who cares. :upeyes:

And it seems the public is even more enthralled when they have to "reform" repeatedly.

Sad that people love and respect this guy. Our society seems to have some pretty whacked out role models. I hope some day years from now, when he's long gone, people make a habit of taking their dogs out to crap on his grave.

Well stated... :cool: If he couldn't scamper around with a football, he'd be in prison by now for stickin'-up a Walgreens, or at best riding on back of a sanitation truck.

I agree whole heartedly with the former, but have to take issue with the latter. My work has intersected with the sanitation industry on occasion, both public and private waste haulers, and I have to say that those guys are some hard working folks. Nothing wrong with doing an honest days work at a job most people would stick their noses up at (pardon the pun).

So, in short, comparing Michael Vick to a garbage man is an insult to garbage men everywhere.

who cares? Ray Lewis and his buddies killed somebody outside of a bar. He conveniently walked away. Donte Stallworth killed someone while driving drunk and received a mere 30 days in jail.

I love dogs as much as the next guy, but they are just dogs.

I guess Im just confused what the argument is......

I guess the thought is that people seem to cut a bit too much slack to, and reward, entertainers regardless of how they behave. It's nothing new, but still disgusting. Personally, I like to remind those celebrity worshipers that they are idiots. I can only speak for myself though. Since I value animals, even ones with 4 legs, I try to make an effort to point out those who don't when the opportunity presents itself. It won't change much of anything, but it comes with the package when someone decides to torture sentient beings for fun. Given (as you pointed out) the lenient sentences, it's the least I can do.

I completely agree. In general, pro athletes/celebrities are morons. However, I just find it shocking how much flack Vick got and is still getting for abusing dogs when other athletes are KILLING people.

I think its funny reading how much animosity/dislike/hate people have against Vick for fighting dogs yet no one cares to mention other serious incidents. It just doesn't seem like an argument that would come from a rational person.

Dante Stallworth Kills a MAN =30 days in jail
Michael Vick Fights/ Kills dogs= 2 years in jail

I feel like there are bigger fish to fry.
