Michael Vick should rot. He may have paid his written debt to society, but he hasn't paid his debt to mankind.
People that think Michael Vick should get a free pass back into the NFL now that his prison sentence is complete make me ill. As far as I am concerned, getting released from prison is just the first step of many Michael Vick will need to take in what SHOULD be a lifetime of retribution.
Michael Vick had a great gift. Not a gift of physical talent, but the gift of opportunity. Michael Vick was lucky enough to get a chance to be a role model to millions of kids and young adults worldwide.
Michael Vick blew it.
I am sorry but prison is hardly the authority on rehabilitation. If you think the Vick got up every morning and hit "How NOT TO Kill Dogs" class between morning breakfast and afternoon chow, you need some serious psychotic medication.
You want to know what Michael Vick's rehab looked like?
6:30 a.m. - Get up and eat breakfast

10:00 a.m. - Go outside and play dominoes on a picnic table.
12:00 p.m. - Lunch
12:30 p.m. - Take a nap
3:00 p.m. - Go outside and play dominoes on a picnic table.

5:30 p.m. - Watch TV and trade stamps for Ramen noodles

I'll guarantee the only thing that has changed for Michael Vick is that he now knows how much it sucks to be in prison. Does this make him remorseful? Of course. Does this mean that he is rehabilitated and should continue to be a role model as a player in the NFL?
I hope that Roger Goodell realizes that it takes far more than a few months to be truly repentant and more importantly to completely grasp how ones actions can affect the lives of others.
Let Michael Vick work on that before working on any playbook.
