Michael Vick's Salary Went to the Dogs

Michael Vick leaves prison for home confinement

"He said he has been earning 12 cents an hour as an overnight janitor in prison. His Falcons salary, he said, was between $10 million and $12 million."

Wow, that's probably the biggest salary cut ever... He went from making about $5000.00 an hour (thats if he worked a 8 hour workday 50 weeks a year) to $0.12 an hour, which is a 99.9976% drop.

Well I'm all for letting him back in the NFL. Not cuz I care about him at all but because he was the best player to have in Madden 2007.


  1. Even though it's not really fair, I don't think he should play in the NFL ever again. Anyone who can treat dogs like that has no soul and should be kept away from any profitable enterprise. If he goes to the Dolphins, for example, I would stop watching football until he was off my team. I'm loyal to my team, but I'm even more loyal to canines.

  2. I have been mentally and morally torn on this deep and divisive issue...

    On one hand, Michael Vick is a piece of shit.

    On the other, he's the best Madden NFL player ever...

    They kind of cancel each other out...

    Besides, Vick didn't do anything that our society doesn't already do to cows or pigs thousands of times over every day.

    Having to do the public service of telling kids not to dogfight kind of seems like punishment enough to me...

    Now I'm curious to know if he's still any good.

  3. I don't care about cows or pigs. I care about dogs.

  4. because i am bored i will engage in a moral equivalence argument with you:

    if pigs and cows are as smart as dogs, that means they are as capable of comprehending life and pain as dogs, so by not caring about them, you're admitting you're a racist.

  5. Yeah, but bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste good.

  6. I'm am totally, 100% owning up to my bias towards dogs. I have no ill-will towards other animals, I just like dogs. Let me put it this way: I'm hetero for dogs.

    The other thing is that in my mind, this isn't a ration moral issue that I can parse out with logic and reason, there was just a bad man who hurt dogs so he should go away forever.

  7. If Vick eats a bucketful of dog shit without throwing up, he should be allowed to play.

  8. I approve Cody's message.

  9. can it have hot sauce on it?
