Let the Vick play...

Now that little title may seem a bit odd coming from the average dog but hear me out before you rush to judgment. Being that we are in America - the land of second chances - one can make the argument that everyone deserves a second chance - but don't read any further if that is what you are expecting here. No, what I really want to talk about is how karma is going to play out. Karma tells me that if Mr. Vick has not paid enough for his transgressions after being caught, drug through the legal system, and losing his celebrity status - he will surely suffer additional pain attempting his come back on the field. Now don't get me wrong - I'm not wishing bad things on Mike or anyone for that matter. In fact - I feel that I am being fair when I say let the guy play it out - let him earn a living. Who knows - maybe he really did learn his lesson. Maybe he is indeed remorseful. Maybe - but I just don't think it likely. 

What's more likely is if one had the capacity to torture and kill an animal in the first place  - he or she probably has some type of personality disorder to begin with and no amount of prison time can teach someone right from wrong when they don't have the capacity to learn. So with that in mind, let's play ball and let the chips fall where they may. The combined energy of all those animal lovers out there will no doubt come into play to help dictate an outcome. Let's remember the law of opposite and equal as it applies to action and reaction. Mr. Vick and his cronies dished out plenty of pain and suffering and now the opposite and equal return has come to bite them back. How much pain can one man take on the field? Mr. Goodell - let the Vick play and we shall find out. Play Ball!
