    I'm going to do fantasy basketball this year. I am a very casual hockey watcher, so I have no clue of fantasy hockey. I am going to do the Picks game again, though.

    I'm already signed in at Picks. So is "foodforthot".
    I've made my week one picks already. Made a survivor choice also.
    I've never been part of any fantasy league.

    To me..."boarding" is something you do on a cruiseliner.
    To me..."crosschecking" is when you use a debit card instead of a check.
    To me..."tripping" is when you [STRIKE]smoke some mexican weed [/STRIKE]and...
    To me..."slashing" is when K-Mart uses their "Blue light Specials"...

    Well, OK, but this isn't the thread where I will "officially" bug you guys. I'll do that later in a different thread.

    I believe he knew that dogfighting is wrong, illegal and sick. At the point of his boys cooperating with the feds and the talk with Goodell, he was in survival mode. There would not have been a rock solid case if his boys had not testified. The feds did not want just his admission to participating in dog fighting, they wanted proof that he was a financier of dog fighting. After his boys talked to the feds, there was no way he could win in court.

    Now what the future holds....who knows. He seemed to say the right things, but he has no choice. His profession is that of a football player. I firmly believe that he is out of the dog fighting business. Vick deserves a second chance. Philly is the perfect spot for him. The coach understands the pitfalls of life. He has sons that have had a rough three years or so.

    I have a problems with anyone who could stand by and watch animals kill one another or kill animals. When I was a younger (about 9) there was a boy (younger) in my neighborhood who routinely threw cats and dogs off the roof of his building. It was horrible. This same boy about 7 years later shoots and kills two friends. Didnt get convicted for those murders. Then kills a milkman about 2 years later and now is in prison for life. Mistreating animals is a sign that something very troubling is in your heart and character.

    I agree and glad that the Eagles did have the footbalz to sign Vick. While I don't condone his actions it was as NYP said his boys and entourage who not only cooperated with the feds but did most of the damage and his biggest participation included financing and staging the activity.

    As with all situations, the feds and media want to go after the big fish to make an example whether it is a blue or white collar crime. How many others are involved in this type of illegal activity that we know of that have even served any jail time let alone two years....

    He served his time, let him play ...if he is a bust then at least he had a chance and hopefully he takes that salary and instead of paying an entourage, he buys a couple of Petco franchises and donates puppies & kittens to the community.

    I think of the Philly coach who has 2 boys who I believe are both serving time in jail right now. They are both young and deserve a second chance when released. I wonder how much the coach was thinking of them when he signed on to bring in Vick and give him a chance.

    That was one of the reasons that he went with the idea...

    Ok, it's time for everyone to move on and leave Vick alone. He paid a tremendous price for his errors and now it is time to move on.
