    its not about a second chance
    its not about seeing self hatred (Lurie)
    its not about remorse
    its not about paying a debt to society

    Vick is a convicted felon, a dog killer, a criminal, a drug user, a jerk!

    Vick’s reinstatement by the NFL is a clear message by the league that convicted felons a welcome and that past indescretions will be forgiven in the interest of a profit and television ratings.

    Jeffrey Lurie made a feeble attempt to mask his desire for Vick with a pathetic monologue on how he despises animal killers. Yeah, right!
    All the Eagles care about is trying to win the NFC east for shot at the playoffs. They felt that Vick gives them that chance.

    So, the Eagles have become “that team”…..the team that everyone asked…..”who would even sign Vick?” The Eagles have sold out and become “that team”.
    In doing so, the Eagles have sold out their fans as well.So ,Eagles fans, by default, you now support Vick by going to the games, by watching them on television,
    by purchasing Eagles merchandise. The Eagles have become “that team” and now their fans are “those fans”. Any fan attending an Eagles game is now tainted as supporting Vick,
    any fan watching them on TV is now tainted as supporting Vick, any fan wearing an Eagles jersey now supports Vick. WHY? Because Jeffrey Lurie says you do!!!!

    Talk about pathetic monologues…
