Are you seriously comparing Mike Vick to Randy Moss?
Say it ain’t so.
Sure Moss had issues, no one can deny that. Moss also made a point of going out of his way to be good to kids. He was hardly in Vick’s league even with the faux moon in Green Bay.
Worse, Vick’s sins are long and egregious. He’s a convicted felon who did such reprehensible things that it’s hard to believe he can be repentant for all of it.
This isn’t a case of minor issues we’re talking about. Vick did 18 months of hard time in Federal Prison. Moss’s actions weren’t even a speed bump on the road that Vick paved.
Read the list of findings in Vick’s case and you’ll get a good idea why so many people are violently opposed to his return to the NFL.
THEN THERE"S THIS:
What makes me wonder is the NFL’s decision to start marketing Michael Vick youth jersey’s (VICK JERSEY) before the guy does anything to redeem himself publicly as an Eagle.
That’s ridiculous. They're selling his stuff to KIDS!
Who thought THAT was a good idea?
Even the Eagles are concerned about image. They're already taking Corporate sponsors off their website because of the Vick backlash. Yet the NFL is ready to cash in on the move. .. Wow.
With all that being said. I’d like to see Mike Vick the football player if he can be a separate person from the one who was convicted of such heinous crimes. Unfortunately, Vick can’t be separated. He’s done some every bad things. And on his way to prison he still didn’t realize what he did wrong.
One look at this should have clued him in.
You think he’s changed? Good luck with that. I’m willing to bet he relapses once the money’s gone.
As a Patriots fan, do you really want this guy in New England’s record/history books?
Thanks, but I'd rather see Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Tedy Bruschi and others win or lose, I don't need a Mike Vick fix to want to watch the Patriots
So what I'm saying is no, I'm not really disappointed he's not here.
