The NFL's reinstatement of Michael Vick is the latest example of the NFL's moral bankruptcy. Mr. Vick tortured and killed animals for entertainement. While I'm certainly NOT a supporter of PETA or any other "animal rights" group, I do agree that wantonly torturing or abusing animals is sick. By reinstating him, the NFL shows that, quite frankly, they don't care about being a moral standard in America. This shows that one can do virtually anything, go through the public "atonement process" and be allowed to return to the sport. This disregards the obligation the NFL has towards it's fans. It's all about the money, nothing more, nothing less.
