MIKE VICK GETS REINSTATED TO THE NFL

So for those of you who aren't avid sports fans, let me clue you in on what the rest of the world is talking about lol. Shortly after being released from prison and now on house arrest, Mike Vick, after being suspended indefinitely from the NFL, was reinstated today with some conditions. For a more in-depth review on the details of the reinstatement check out ESPN.COM.

Personally, I feel as though Mike Vick has paid his debt to society. He admitted to his wrong doing, dealt with his consequences like a man and must now prove he's once again worthy of the respect of the NFL. Remember, every action whether positive or negative has a respective consequence. Can you handle the outcome of your actions?

i agree with you 100%. This goes along with the chris brown situation. You have two successful black men who both made a mistake, a mistake they both have and had to pay for. Michael Vick served his time, made his apology and has had a lot of time to sit and think about his decisions and the outcome from all of it. I believe he is sincere and sorry and deserves a second chance just like anyone else.

I'm happy for him. I think his situation was more "let's make an example out of him" than actually being just. Congrats Vick.....don't fuck it up this time!

the commissioner is really trying to make an example of vick but yet there are plenty of other NFL players that has done some deeper shit (ie dante stallworth, ben roethlisberger [and his alleged sexual assault charge], adam 'packman' jones) that are swept under the rug. he paid his dues to society, the media has already written him off. so let the man do what he's most passionate about, playing some damn football. and hey, he make come back and go all the way to the super bowl

Good, for once I think Goodell made the right call...

I think Vick more than paid for the charges that he was found guilty of. Never was a fan, but I hated the way he was made to look in public...the backlash, the outrage...people have more consideration for a damn dog than a human life.

I am excited about Mike Vic's return and I hope that there is a team out there that is willing to pick him. I truly hope that he has learned from his mistake and will be more mindful of the company that he keeps and his actions. One Love

i sort of get dude now. But there was a comic strip in the paper one day, with him on trial & all the dogs in the jury were like: Scooby Doo, Snoopy, & the rest of those cute cartoon dogs...they looked pretty pissed.
