i dont think anyone on here is defending Vick or truly wants him on the team..
what he did was cruel and inhumane, IMHO..
top dawg, i understand where u r coming from.. there are worse people out there in the world,.. shoot, comparing him to some of the scum he was locked up with prolly makes him look like a saint.. but we arent comparing him to to worst, we shud be comparing him to the rest of the players in the league that have slipped up and stepped outta line..
so in that light, is what he did worse than all the Pacman incidents? i think so, but to be honest- if u gave me a choice between the two, i'd choose Vick.. i think he realizes the mistakes he made..
That's a lot more reasonable. And I understand what you're sayin'.
IMHO people just throw that term out so cavalierly (even referring to themselves as thugs), but I have known some thugs in y life, and I can tell you that you would be loath to literally turn your back on them, lest they have you in a position that you don't want to be in. I have known people who weren't thugs who tried to play that thug game and literally end up in the back of a trunk, riddled with bullet holes (serious business). One can compare a dog killer to a people killer all they like. Are they both bad? Yes. Both illegal? Yes. But still worlds apart IMHO. We need to save the term for the real deal.
