What would you do?

July 29, 2009

In case you haven’t left your house in the last year and don’t own a TV, radio, or computer – Michael Vick went to jail for participating in a dogfighting ring, has been reinstated by the NFL, and will probably be signed by an NFL team in the next couple of weeks.  (Judging by his criminal record, the Bengals will probably sign him)


I’ve heard a TON of people with differing opinions on this, so I thought we’d throw this one out for conversation.  If you were an NFL owner, would you sign Michael Vick if you KNEW he could help your team?  If so, would you want him as a Quarterback or at another position?

    No way! I can’t understand why any team would want him. I would think it would be bad PR and possibly reflect on the management of the team. The Baltimore Ravens are another great team for convicts to play on.

    i think that hes learned his lesson unlike so many other nfl players that dont go to jail or get kicked off the team they were on when they do something bad. I think vick is still a nfl caliber qb and i would start him as one. However he needs to be with a team in need of his position and his style of offense. he could be potentially dangerous with the 49ers bc gore can easily block and with crabtree as a new reciever they could use a decent qb.

    He has paid his debt… He could turn out to be a good example. Just because you make a HUGE mistake, and it costs you dearly, you can turn your life around and do what is right. But he could be an extremely bad example for a lot of people, if he does not do right. The team that hires him should publically make it very clear that if he messes up, he’s out. In fact the NFL should do that.

    It is already hard enough for someone with a bad background to get a job. If this guy has a job let him do it. He is very talented and his future shouldn’t suffer because of his past.

    Why don’t they just form another team…just for these trouble makers? Then we wouldn’t have to worry about them. They can just make their own bad PR and not bring the rest to the team down with them?

    If a team does obtain him, they should NOT pay him millions, just give him a year to year contract and make him earn his pay. If each year he proves he can be a team player that stays out of trouble, then they can increase the pay and the contract time. But giving him all these millions in the beginning…NOT! Look at Pacman…the same thing should of been done with his contract. Use the Missouri method…SHOW ME your worth 12.7 million!!
