Five Concerns Michael Vick Must Have When Returning To The NFL
Michael Vick is conditionally reinstated into the NFL, with a minimal suspension to be handed down during the first month of the season. The jockeying for his signature is already beginning. Where will he end up, Jacksonville, New Orleans? No one knows just yet, but wherever he goes he needs to be concerned with...
Can He Still Play?
Does he still have the legs, the arm, the eye, or the heart to be successful in the NFL? Will his scrambling mojo be there for him? This should be the most important question.
What Community Will Have Him?
People don't like him. His crime was vicious and unforgivable. Although he is a human and capable of redemption, would you want him as your neighbor? I can't think of any given street in the U.S.A that would want him.
I don't know if he was court-ordered to attend "dog-killers anonymous" meetings or what, but I am sure they will have them in whatever city Vick relocates to. The problem is for addicts, especially dog-killing addicts, is that dogs are everywhere. Drugs and gambling are a little harder to find. Dogs to a, dog-killer, are like a drink to an alcoholic...they are everywhere.
He Has To Be Concerned For His Life
Hippies are crazy...especially the P.E.T.A/Greenpeace type. They preach about peace and nonviolence, but they will kill a person in a second to save an animal. Vick needs to be concerned about violence against him and his family, and vandalism against his properties and interests as well.
He's Got Friends In Low Places
Lastly, if Vick wants a real shot at redemption and turning his experience into something positive, he needs to choose his friends better.
Having T.O and Allen Iverson as his primary advocates is not good. He needs to pick more positive black role models, like the Rev. Al Sharpton or Johnny Cochran.
