....big toe. You know I want to rephrase that, but I won't.
They signed Michael Vick today as their back up quarterback.
The argument that he served his time for his dog fighting ring doesn't fly with me. He had millions of dollars and abused his largesse and his celebrity to abuse dogs. For sport.
Had he finished his free ride degree at VA Tech instead of opting out early to enter the NFL then he wouldn't have to "fallback" on the only thing he knows and return to football to make a living.
Instead, the greedy NFL and the Eagles have decided that ticket sales are more important then doing the right thing - which would have been to have sidelined Vick forever.
How many felons do you know that committed crimes in their own profession [think white collar] are allowed to go back to their previous professions? I realize dog fighting isn't in line to betting on baseball or insider trading, but c'mon - abuse of animals?
Give me a break. I just hope a Lawernce Taylor type takes that little jerk out in the first play of the very first game he is in - and doesn't feel bad. Vick deserves every bit of it. Keep in mind that I don't want Vick maimed/killed like his dogs, but I want his career ended in the same way LT ended Joe Theismans' career in 1986 during a Monday night football game.
On a side note - does anyone think the Philadelphia Eagles will shoot Vick dead if his career is ended the same way Vick and his cohorts did when their dogs lost? Don't think so.
Rant over. Forgive me, but every bit of this is wrong.
