Vick sentenced to 23 months in prison
This should go for all NFL players involved in criminal matters who have been directly found guilty for any crimes just as severe or more severe. This is coming from a guy who liked Michael Vick as a QB prior to this mess.

What world do you live in that accepts murderers and pedophiles??? I sure as hell don't accept them. Why do we have to compare crimes when dealing with Vick; it is a lame cop out. His felony is the enterprising of dog fighting, his moral crime is the execution of dogs, numbering in the 60s. Stop using your flawed logic and rationalize the fact that there is no rehab for an individual who has expressed no remorse and doesn't feel what he's done is even remotely wrong. Wake up and give your collective heads a shake, working in the entertainment field is dependant on image and Vick has lost it; he's not owed anything, he had a chance and blew it. He can come back to the NFL but it's up to him to address what he's done and the public to treat him accordingly.
