Michael Vick, released after serving his time for a Federal Dog Fighting conviction, was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to be their backup quarterback.
I love dogs. JJ, the dog in my picture, is a terrific, loving and gentle dog who was abused by his first owners. Few things can upset me as much as those who abuse animals.
And yet, I believe Michael Vick should return to work.
Jim Capel is an excellent writer for ESPN. He wrote an article called "Vick is just another working stiff."
He addressed the thread found in many an article about Vick and other athletes that have either broken the law or made dubious ethical decisions should be suspended or kicked out of professional sports, regardless of fulfilling the legal consequences of their actions, because "it's an honor to be allowed to play" in each league.
