PETA wants NFL to test Vick's mental health

PETA would want me to give up my birds and let them fly free.

(they obviously have no clue just how spoiled these little buggers are)

Can't honestly blame them for balking at supporting his return. i think the idea of his doing a PSA for them is a lousy one, honestly.

Vick is going to have to face Roger Goodell, the man whose face he lied to repeatedly, in order to get back into the league. I don't buy for a moment that it's a lock he returns next year, and it could be even longer than that.

PETA has no authority to make such demands.

That is true. If a mental evaluation was needed, it would have been ordered it at his sentencing. He is doing his time, making it up to society, if he can really ever do that. But this kind of request needed to be brought up in court.

As much as I hate Vick this is absolutely insane, he doing his time and shouldn't be bothered after that. I also have nothing against him coming back into the league, everyone deserves at least a 2nd chance.

the reason they want him tested before entering the nfl, is his psyche evaluations from prison suggest that he does have some sort of personality disorder. Since they were talking with vick about doing tv commercials and stuff they got their hands on the report, hence why peta withdrew the offer for the commercial. The report is from the USDA office and shows that he lied about being the ringleader (said he just funded it) and about attending and betting on the dogs.

I do however wonder if with the new evidence from the recently released report if Virgina stays on course and goes after him for the felony charges for just dog fighting. (it's a felony in Virgina with a sentence up from 5 - 20 years in jail.

Your right The USDA should've brought this up in court but didn't since they were only going for conspiracy charges, The recent report from the USDA shows that he does actually fit the profile for someone with a Personality disorder.

people who enjoy dog fighting are retarded.

Fixed.

As to Vick, what you have to remember is that the dogfighting was at the heart of a gambling operation. You can bet the NFL remembers that. You can also bet that Roger Goodell remembers Vick lying to his face.

His reinstatement is far from being a lock.

We have to make sure a man like Vick never ever becomes a QB in this league again.
