Vick sentenced to 23 months in prison
Contingent upon him paying his debt, and reconciling all those PERSONAL DEMONS which put him in this position in the FIRST place - I can't wait to see which GM will have the COURAGE, and CLASS to offer Vick a SECOND CHANCE at LIFE.
Michael Vick is an ALL WORLD talent who made some questionable decisions ... I WISH nothing but the BEST for him, and his family in the coming years of HUMAN TRANSFORMATION and GROWTH.

I am fed up with excuses that people make - attempting to sway onlookers opinions from 'this is wrong' to 'this isn't bad and it's not my fault'.
Vic's involvement in all parts of dog fighting is wrong PERIOD and he IS RESPONSIBLE for his actions.
Vic should not be able to bargain his way out time in jail, loss of employment & marketing income or fines.
There is plenty of honest talent in the world to fill his shoes - so Good Bye.

If he does get a lifetime ban, you will see him in the CFL. People will come out in droves and maybe he will put some life in an otherwise stale Canadian game.

What I would like to see happen to him is the same what he did to the dogs: beatings, electric shock, drowning, hanging. But that won't happen so the best one can hope for is that someone in prison can get to him and teach him a little humility.
Then when he gets out: no career, game over.
