Depraved Dog Killer Michael Vick Reinstated by NFL

Sick, depraved dog killer, Michael Vick, was reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell today. Goodell’s braindead decision allows Vick to participate in preseason practices, workouts and meetings. He can also play in final two preseason games if he can find a team dumb enough to sign him. A number of teams — including the New York Giants and New York Jets, have already said they have absolutely no interest in signing the disgraced, former Atlanta Falcons quarterback.

Goodell suspended Vick indefinitely in August 2007 after Vick admitted bankrolling the “Bad Newz Kennels” dogfighting operation located on his sprawling Virginia estate. He plead guilty after three co-defendants testified to gruesome details of how Vick participated in the killing of dogs that didn’t perform well in test fights by shooting, hanging, drowning or slamming them to the ground.

Vick was convicted of Federal animal cruelty charges and was sentenced to a 23-month sentence. The first 18 months her served at a Leavenworth, KS prison. However, the remaining five months amounted to house arrest at his posh, 15-acre property Virginia estate.

Yes, what he did was horrible but he did serve his time and hopefully learned a lesson.

He'll fit right in with the Raiders.
The Giants, the Jets, the 49ers and the Falcons are all said, thanks but no thanks. It will be interesting to see what team is willing to take on this monster and the ensuing controversy he will bring.
Great picture. It reflects the "true man inside".

P.S. Roger Goodell is as big of a piece of crap as Vick for reinstating him.
