It doesn't matter whether he is convicted of a felony or not......He has proven himself guilty by debating on whether to take a plea deal or not.......he SHOULD NOT be allowed to play in the NFL again.......No 1 or 2 season suspension, etc........FOREVER.......and if they do let him play again, well, someone else can watch football......This person will be done with it.

Vick wasn't too concerned about his NFL carrier prior to getting caught.

If Vick is allowed to continue his football career after this, I can promise that this avid fan will NOT be watching.

Behavior that has been admitted must not be tolerated in the professional realm - no more NFL football for the subject Defendant.
