Why? It's simple if you're able to think for yourself at all which clearly you are having a hard time with and repeat whatever the media tells you to think.
Uh Huh When Did I say anything that the media has told me, As I see it most of the Media is toting the Micheal Vick story: feel good story of the year
Aside from the fact he repaid he debt to society and by letter of the law has already served his sentence (heaven forbid YOU ever make a mistake and people want you hung.. then maybe you will understand) and deserves a second chance at life.
Again don't give me this second chance Bull shit. Now who's regurgitating what the media is feeding him. If your so into second chances why don't you tell me how you would feel if a sex offender moved in next door to you. I bet you would be over their with cookies in hand welcoming him to the neighborhood. Sure I agree with a second chance at life he should be allowed to work his construction job until he can't do it anymore. Not make millions playing a game
Now, if he got out and went back to the same thing then I would be the one calling for the noose. But he hasn't, has he? The fact was that he WAS caught and my guess is he learned a very valuable lesson which you seem so quick to glaze over since you weren't the one sitting in Leavenworth for 2 years while your entire life slipped away knowing that you once had a six figure contract and were now bankrupt and everything you had worked for was gone. On top of that you were now a convicted felon which comes with it's own set of guidelines, laws and restrictions. You also were going to be vilified by 10% of the population who had nothing better to do with their time than hate. Or how about the fact that new laws are now on the books and new training and special task force divisions have been introduced all to help fight this horrible crime and the amount of felony charges/prosecutions since Vick's arrest has skyrocketed and for the first time the underground dog fighting world has been severely crippled. Yeah, all of that means nothing to you.... right?
Crippled Really? Who told you that because they are lying to your face. They rings are just getting smarter. They have a web cam a ref and two handlers doesn't sound crippling to me it sounds like they are just getting smarter by not drawing attention with a crowd.
Forced or not Vick is now working hand in hand with PETA and has endorsements from the ASPCA so this means that, like it or not, he's the new face of these causes which you seem to support whole heartedly.
Forced is the main word here. He has no interest in what is best for these organizations all he cares about is playing football and making millions. If you had the chance to continue playing a game for a living and making Millions you would support whoever they told you too. And don't give me the high and mighty no I wouldn't for a few Million and the chance to play a game for a living I would represent who ever they told me too as well I'm not holding it against him I just don't think he's the best face.
You don't really seem to understand what's going on beneath the surface and the media doesn't do any real investigative journalism these days so allow me to explain it to you:
Seriously dude give the media shit a fucking rest. I am a photographer and designer, I have worked for many newspapers, I have worked on political campaigns not just one...Many, I know how the media works, and Too continually blame them is stupid and a bit whack jobish true their is shitty reporting out their but I am certainly not a sheep who just believes what I am told. But don't forget he deserves a second chance ( BAAHHHH )
What is better for the spokesperson of an organization? World wide fame or complete and utter failure?
Agreed but It could be someone else not someone who is forced to do it
When he goes to school assemblies or does commercials what will kids listen to and learn from more, an NFL star or some washed up has been that people will forget in a few years?
Yeah I really payed attention to those school assemblies especially the ones about not smoking and drinking because they were bad for me, Oh wait I ended up smoking for 10 years of my life Man if only a sadistic asshole had told me it was a bad idea I might have listened.
Seems to me that, regardless of what happened in the past, the best thing for all parties involved moving forward is to support him and it would seem to me that you should be pulling for the guy, not harboring some sort of archaic bitter hatred towards him. Wishing for his failure will NOT help your cause and I laugh at people too simple to understand how that actually hurts what you're so desperate to support.
Really you're calling me simple, thats your comeback I understand that in your little brain what you just said probably made some sort of sense. Hell I'm willing to bet that It even sounded like rocky in their while you talk. ay yo da best ting ta do ist root da guyz on becauze yous know we all wantz a secon chances if wez fucked up. Simply put, Putting that asshole back out on the field and toting your nonsense filled belief that he is reformed is what is simple. Now I know your a mod and I will probably be banned for this but seriously dude I find your belief systems to ass backwards and fucked up. You're total lack of compassion for decency is disturbing. And to have to revert to name calling seriously speaks for your mental capacity I really wonder how you would react if this was your dog. This was a English Bulldog recently rescued from a dog fighting operation. This dog was somebody's pet that was stolen by dog fighters to be used as a training dog. Now these assholes were to stupid to know that an english bulldog is a bad Mother fucker when provoked so after a few times that there pits were getting hurt trying to attack the bulldog these sadistic assholes bashed in her teeth with a hammer. Also they cut off one of her eye lids, she was rescued by a group that I work with and is doing as good as can be expected. But seriously if your a pet owner I don't know how you can look at things like this and not just die inside. This bulldog is sweet and loving and somebody stole her from her family and tied her up with the intent of torturing her and Killing her for sport. Don't think for one Second Micheal Vick didn't commit atrocities like this to innocent animals that were scared and just wanted to be loved
