Should I Hop on the Vick Forgiveness Wagon?
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is all over himself praising Michael Vick….Maybe that can be explained….because the Philadelphia Eagles, the team Vick is quarterback for, is doing so well, and Vick is having such a terrific year (all of that means $$$$ for the NFL).
If you’re cynical, you may suggest Goodell has good reason to forgive the QB. Goodell, though, is hardly alone – I had not seen that Time Magazine awarded Vick a comeback of the year, number 9 among their top comebacks. Time said:
I’m just not sure what people want Michael Vick to do? Reilly wonders, “Quit football? Return to prison? Drown himself in the same lake
where he and his crew used to drown dogs? Would he be forgiven then?”
Thousands my have hit my blog post on Vick which just questions
what’s behind those intentions to say he wants a dog…contrasting to
over 15,000 that have checked out the ESPN blog. The ESPN piece has been
out there much longer, but still I wonder…There are Vick protest
pages on Facebook, yes…But Vick’s uniform is the Eagles’ top seller,
tickets to the games are sold out in Philly….and now the many blogs,
broadcast pieces and articles on forgiveness. Am I not forgiving enough?
Are others seeing something I am not?
