I don't think question is can Michael Vick make a comeback, but rather "should he be allowed to." Normally I don't think prison is appropriate punishment for any but the most heinous crimes. To me, his was right up there with child abuse, rape and murder. Michael did not spend enough time in prison! I would have been satisfied with no less than five years. I would have liked to see him come out too old to play professionally again.
I question the sincerity of his apologies, and wonder if their purpose is not to return him to fame rather than because he really saw the fallacy of his deeds. I think he should have to complete his community service before he can play again.
Basically for hurting God's innocent creatures and being a really hideous expamle to thousands of inner city children, he got a slap on the wrist. I hate PETA, but I hope they show up at his games wearing lettuce leaves and distracting the team and the crowd.
I don't think the time of forgiveness has arrived yet.
