With news that Michael Vick could be released as early as May 21st to serve house arrest because of prison overcrowding, it’s time to discuss his future.
He’s paid his debt to society and deserves a second chance whether he’s talented or not just like anyone else on the face of the earth.
You hear all this bull crap about placing him in a wild cat offense or running the rock, returning kicks and punts or lining up at receiver, but squash that.
Michael Vick is a quarterback and if given the proper weapons, will show the world just how much of a bad mf’er he is if he’s given the opportunity. Tim Tebow couldn’t hold his Virginia Tech jock.
I’ll say this now, most Blacks are gonna throw support behind Vick and that’s something the main stream is gonna have to deal with simply because there are much more important issues to deal with. When Blacks aren’t safe sitting on their own stoop in various neighborhoods across the land, why the hell should they care about dog fighting? Seriously. Crime is crime and I’m definitely not absolving crime, but isn’t one human life more important than every single animal on the planet? This might be an unpopular belief to be critical in this instance (like I care), but there are some folk out there who don’t think so. What’s that about? Kinda crazy right? Let me put it this way, if I had a family dog in my household for years and I had to make a decision whether to save it or a total stranger, I guess I’ll be making a trip to the pet store. Of course I would be sad, but isn’t there a difference? Is this illogical?
I don’t think I’m going out on a limb to say that while some cats like Bernie Maddoff chill in Manhattan condos, Mike was serving time. He was contrite during that very humbling press conference, so it’s time to ease back and let the man live. He killed no one but you would think he ran through Virginia like Nat and slashed folks on outta here. The press coverage was absolutely sickening. Some view dog fighting as a horrible crime, but it never warranted the coverage it received no matter what some of you say.
It’s time to move on.
Yeah, he’s gonna face all kinds of picket signs, dog killer and “you suck” chants, angry ass facial expressions, little kids laughing at and booing him, middle fingers, burnt 7 jerseys or whatever else, but after serving what will be 23 months in Leavenworth, I’m sure the brotha can handle pretty much anything fanatics dole out.
Get somebody to buy your food Mike and don’t eat out bruh. There will be people who will hate your guts with a passion until the day you die.
They can care less you became the first quarterback ever to rush for 1,000 yards or took a less than talented team to the NFC Championship alone.
What’s next for Michael Vick?
