Forgive me if you're a Mike Vick sympathizer, but I'm glad the judge wasn't lenient. While I loved watching Vick, I'm a bleeding-heart for animal rights, and what he was involved in is one of the most disgusting affairs I could conceive. His NFL career is likely over. He'll be in jail next season; and if he serves his entire sentence (I have to imagine that's unlikely), he'd be in there for the start of 2009. Add an NFL suspension on top of that, and he'll be available in 2009 or 2010. By then, the only team owner that'd likely give him a shot (Al Davis) will be in a retirement home or dead.
I'm mad at Vick not just for what he did, but for his stupidity. I doubted him coming out of college, but he won me over with his electrifying play. I'm pissed that I won't get to watch him play in the NFL again, but I'm glad he got what he deserved. -Cyd Zeigler jr.
