The Latest In The Michael Vick Saga.
Well, it looks like the Eagles are going to give Vick a chance to get back into football. Personally, and this is my own opinion, not the opinion of this paper, that he should not have been let back in the league to play. And, I feel the same way about players that have been caught with guns and drugs and alcohol. Now, with that out of the way, I don't think he can be rehabilitated. Like a vicious dog, he can not stop his behavior, as it has been ingrained into his brain that this behavior is perfectly acceptable.
As a boy, he grew up around people that fought dogs in alleys, and then moved on to the pit fighting. He just can't stop this way of life. I know he will continue to be in the fight world, just under the radar. He will definitely be more careful about the people he associates with in the underground fight world. The Eagles have taken on more than they bargained for. The Animal Rights and Welfare people will be at every single game to voice their opinions, very, very loudly.
The mobs of people that will come to harass him, and the team for taking him on, will be unreal. This action by the Eagles was really quite shocking to me. Look at the way they have treated Donovan McNabb. He was a fabulous QB, but the Philly fans can be unmerciful. So, I am interested to see how this plays out.
