Michael Vick – Are You Ready for Some Football?

Michael Vick was released from his home confinement today to finish his 23-month sentence for dog fighting.  His crimes were horrible and his penalty was stiff – two years of his life and an estimate of over 70 million dollars in deals and endorsements.

Three questions remain.   The first question.  Will Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner allow Vick to play football again?  Yes. 

The second question.  Which team will put up with the trouble of picking him up?  Hmm….much harder to answer.

The third question.  Can Michael Vick shed his murderous image?  Maybe. 

He will have to prove that he is completely rehabilitated in every single way possible.  Not only is he going to have to prove that he no longer regards dog killing as  humane treatment, he is going to have to prove that he is a completely changed man.  No more parties, no more pot, no more smart ass comments and rants and raves.

I don’t want to hear him spouting that he has found God.  What I am saying is that he has to prove himself beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a new man.  A man who abhors violence of any kind.  A man who gives his time and money to those less fortunate than him.  A man who is willing to get onto his knees and ask forgiveness from not only every football fan, but every person who he has angered with his past choices.  Words are not going to do it.  Having PETA endorse him is not going to do it.  Only actions over time will prove that he is completely a new man.

Then and only then will Michael Vick ever become human in many of our eyes.  Can a man like Vick truly change like that?  Is he totally reformed?

I predict that the Miami Dolphins will give him a shot to prove it…I just wonder if he can change?…and I just wonder if he did change?
