What I don’t get is his willingness to host the Bad Newz Kennels on his property. Had he participated as a rabid spectator in a blood sport, he could have easily pleaded mea culpa to the public and gotten away with a hand slap and fawning consideration from his fans. Instead, he took part in electrocutions and drownings, and turned off everyone associated with him. In the process, he tossed his 130 million dollar contract out the window. I guess money doesn’t make you any less stupid.
The NFL may rise to the occasion by sentencing Vick to a lifetime ban; but my cynical side thinks that some NFL owner (Jerry Jones comes to mind) may put profit before ethics and try to bring him back after he’s done his jail time.
Hopefully, Vick will fade quietly into obscurity, much like Zacarius Moussauoi. And when what money he’s got left runs out, he will.
