Okay, I've had enough of this continued bashing of Michael Vick from people who simply needs to get a life. About two weeks ago, Vick played the game of his life, that will never be duplicated. Football fans and so called analysts praised his play over the Washington Redskins as one of the greatest games witnessed and for me a little bit listened too, as I was driving home when the Eagles took on the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. It was a great game, but all of it was lost on the fact that Vick was convicted of cruelty to animals and served 15 months in Ft. Leavensworth Prison in Kansas.

Let me say that last part again, Vick was convicted of cruelty to animals and served 15 months in PRISON!! He served his time and after initially lying about the situation, admitted too and too his punishment. The crime also cost him millions of dollars on and off the field for doing what he did on the football field against Washington. Exactly how much ridicule should he take? Should he be tarred and feathered, branded with a "D" on his forehead, what?! Because I thought, once a person serves his time in jail or prison fully, he should be able to go on with his life and mind you, Vick has a talent, that talent is playing in the NFL, and so far since he took over, he's done that well. Apparently too well, after the game against Washington, the L.A. Times, posted letters from apparent dog lovers, folks who are missing a life or unable to have normal human relationships with us humans or future mass murderers in waiting, who were literally pissed off that Vick is receiving praise for his football play.

Meanwhile these may be the same people who have no problems with murder, rape and mayhem of other humans. What world are we living in, when a famous director, who continues to be on the run for date raping a teen, and just because he wins an Oscar, he deserves to be absolved from his crime. Meanwhile, I'll say this again, a man is convicted of dog fighting (animal cruelty), serves his time and we're supposed to hate him...Please!


Oh Cam Nah!

I'm sorry, but if I had a vote for the Heisman, Cam Newton, wouldn't be my choice..sorry, but if I have to think about whether he knew or not his old man was pimpin' him out to colleges and I knew he was thrown out of Florida for being arrested and cheating. I'm sorry his redemption is being able to suit up and play again at that level. Not Heisman trophy winner. There's no doubt this young man, can play football, well he can execute it, but I don't see a NFL future for this kid. Sure, he'll make his money, but I don't think his future is going to be bright. I hope I'm wrong, but where's Vince Young?
