It's been two years since Michael Vick's reputation was destroyed by his involvement in the torture and murder of dogs. Today he was released from Federal prison and he's a free man. The question now for the NFL is, does the ex-convict "deserve" a second chance?
I have a problem with the word "deserve." Despite how grossly heinous I consider what he did to those dogs, I don't have a big problem if he gets a second shot at the NFL. But I also don't have a big problem if he doesn't.
Does he "deserve" a second chance? Is it his god-given right? I don't think so. And when I look at the picture of this dog and think about what he did to those animals, I will be hoping he doesn't get one. But if NFL commish Roger Goodell gives him a second chance, I'll respect that and just cheer against him every time he steps on the field.
