    Default Michael Vick now with the (NY) Jets...

    I'm not a football fan (prefer soccer, blame my dad ) but I know many here are. So those of you in the NY Tri-State area (and elsewhere too) curious what your thoughts are?

    I'm in So Cal where we don't have a football team but I'll throw in my opinon on this one...it's disgusting that a man who tortured and killed dogs, and watched as this was all going on with satisfaction, is given a contract to play for the Jets. I believe in second chances to some degree. In Vick's case however, a second chance wouldn't apply and that's my opinion.

    @cali baker. I agree with you. In fact, any person that has hurt a child or animal becomes pond scum to me. I don't give second chances for crimes like that.

    So that's the thing- NY'rs adore their animals. I mean we're a crazy bunch. We don't keep them outdoors, we spoil them rotten and we take them with us whenever we can. We have dog walkers that come twice a day if we're at work, and doggie day care's a huge business here. For those times we're forced to travel without our beloved pets, there's a ton of doggie motels here that offer private rooms, with gourmet dinners for your pup. Yeah, I'm not kidding.

    With all that said, I'm wondering why there hasn't been an uproar here. Almost feels like everyone's being very quiet about it. I just don't understand?

    @blueberry'smom, it does seem rather "hush hush", doesn't it?! Were a lot of New Yorker's unaware that he was even considered for the team? In any case, it's $$ that talks in the NFL, nothing to do with morals, or what's right/wrong. It's sad.

    Completely agree. The whole thing sickens me.

    Yep, very hush hush. I wasn't even aware of it until my husband told me today. And mind you, I have the news on 24/7 and don't remember them ever mentioning it. I'm sure they did, but it was probably in passing.. like very nonchalant.
    My husband only found out because a colleague mentioned it to him this morning.

    I'm not sure if they were unaware? I don't really keep up with football. Even so, something like this should have been a huge thing here. Big enough that people like me should have heard about it, but we didn't.

    Well I am a NY'r and I can tell you I will never watch a Jets game again either home or away. I think it is disgusting that he is not rotting in jail let alone that he is allowed to earn his salary. THE ONLY way he should be allowed to play is that he makes a minimal amount allowing him to live and the rest of his salary is donated to Pit Bull rescues. In my opinion Mr. Vick is the worse form of human life. I watch the news at 7am, 5pm, and again at 11pm and I never heard a word of this EVER!!! I think we should be outside of Hofstra where the Jets train and protest this disgusting person.

    I did not hear a word. I found out when @Chumley posted something on facebook just the other day.

    ugh...i dont even know where to begin..As a lifelong NY Jet fan I am sickened by this. I have stuck by this losing team for longer than i care to remember...I have raised my three sons to be die hard fans also..they have disappointed us year after year but we always come back for more punishment. The signing of this low-life baffles me. They try to spin it and say hes reformed and hes an advocate of the humane treatment of animals now..what a load of bull..the man is only sayingand doing whatever he can to get his career back and make his millions again..The things he did to these poor dogs is beyond comprehension..brutal chokings and drownings.So i guess this fall i wont be placing friendly wagers with @pdolphin27...ill be apple picking with the wife (jeez just shoot me now!) @brutus77 the jets no longer train at Hofstra..if they di id be protesting right along with the rest of the animal rights advocates. It was a sad day indeed in my household the day the NY Jets signed this poor excuse for a human being. Even Chum is pissed!-vick1-jpg-vick2-jpg

    I am very proud of Chumley-though he does look quite handsome in his Jets shirt!
