The people here in Philadelphia are so upset about Michael Vick (bet they'll stop being upset if he continues to play as well as he has been) One woman even told me he wasn't punished enough for his crime. Was he supposed to say, "Judge, that isn't enough"? I'm hoping to enjoy a good football season - and whatever he did, he did pay the price.
I watching SportsNation on ESPN2 today (9/27), and Michelle Beadle was even harder on Michael Vick for his past dog-fighting conviction. She did admit that her hostility was due to her caring for her dog. I felt that to be a bit harsh, but she is getting paid for her opinions.
I think his behavior was unconscionable, but it's not like he murdered a dozen people. He paid the price and returned to his job. He's not a saint, but neither is he a lifetime criminal.
