So what? The Jets are just throwing him a bone.

It's a dog eat dog world in the jersey number world.  They live by a warrior code...

He should wear #9, in honor of all the canines he killed. Dog killer.

Automobiles kill hundreds of dogs -a week- in this country.
Therefore, no automobile should play quarterback in the NFL.

The numbers change EVERYTHING.  Take, for example, what obviously happens to a person wearing #72.  Every single one of them weighs 300 pounds.  How would you like that to happen to you?

You should hate a higher class team.  Like the Cowboys, for example.

Meh.  People aren't allowed to cop to crimes committed, apologize, serve their jail time, then go back to work, all the while serving with organizations to help prevent others from committing the same crime for which they were caught and punished.

I guess.

Don't see any fellatio going on here, but my stance has always been that unless you're a vegan, have never had fast food or only ever buy certified free-range meats that getting outraged over dogs is hypocrisy.

I DO respect those that say, want to boycott the teams he plays for or even the NFL itself and taking a principled stand or whatever, but those saying he should be put under the prison.. or those wishing him grievous harm are, in my view, kinda deranged.

Yes, bad, bad man did bad things.  No one's arguing that.

But he served his time.  Did you expect him to not work once he got out of prison?  He needed to get a job.  He got one based on the job skills he had.  Fail to see the butthurt about something that's none of your business.

I never said that I want him put away for life or murdered.  The NFL and their media puppets decided that everyone should start fellating him for some reason, so he's gotten a free pass since his 2 year club fed stint.  The details of what he did are generally not known by most of the NFL fanbase for a reason.  He has a right to be a free man under the law, and NFL teams have the right to employ him.  ESPN has the right to fellate him at the NFL's behest.  I have the right not to like the whole mess.

Wasn't including you.. just trying to lay all my cards out in one post. What I WAS responding to you with was that I don't see the felating (not in this thread thusfar anyway), though in fairness, I don't watch ESPN except for live events.

Decker has been my favorite for years. Vick? Not so much. How do I root for Decker, yet hope the Jets lose? This season is going to be confusing.

I was told that they also have to purchase all jerseys with that name/number combo that are in the warehouse. It can be a very expensive prospect. Like..wasn't there a guy who wanted Wilson's number? Or some other high profile, newer, player?
Anyway, that dude settled for a different number.

I never said he shouldn't work, but being showered with millions is a bit much. He is a scum bag. He's not someone to look up to or idolize or even make excuses for. If Sterling can be forced to sell a team for just uttering racist bile, we can think Vick is still a piece of shiat for what he did.

32 teams passed on Tom Brady multiple times. Being passed up doesn't mean everything.

The other teams passed on him in the first round, possibly for good reason. That doesn't mean that he wasn't worth a later pick.

He talked about it in Letterman. A veteran player had been signed and bought "his" number from a younger player for $25k and Kruk said he didn't know people paid that much for them and that he once switched numbers with a guy for a case of beer.

Law enforcement officers have killed many more than 9 dogs.  In fact...

I'm old school in that I still think only kickers should wear 1 through 3. But I also think soccer style kicking should be illegal.

I've no issue with Vick being a free man, having served his time. My big issue is that IIRC, the NFL banned him for life over this. But, as soon as there was a chance to make some money, all was forgiven.

The NFL likes to seem ethical and upstanding, but cares only about money. They only get moral when they feel it will protect their empire.
